cookielove Fri 21-Aug-09 20:23:27

ahhh thats cute, but is a puppy in a story book and thats all i can think of, but still cute

Will probably be called Fergie. I quite like it though. Any Scottish links?

Tillyscoutsmum Fri 21-Aug-09 20:35:08

We quite like Ferg and Fergie and really like Gus as nicknames.. We're not actually Scottish but our surname is so Scottish names tend to work well (surname is the same as leader of Conservative party)

I like it. DD has a toy dog named after that book grin, but its still not what came first to my mind - it was, who's that good reporter I sometimes hear on R4, Fergus somebody.

yama Fri 21-Aug-09 20:38:03

I like it, but I REALLY like fergal.

wheresclaire Fri 21-Aug-09 20:43:48

Oh I really like Gus as shortened version. When I hear Fergal I think of that long haired singer from 90's. Fergal Sharkey?

the combination is good

(and I don't often say that on baby names threads!)

Lovely name.

MaggieBeauLeo Fri 21-Aug-09 20:50:42

Love it! I was gutted when my cousin had one before my son was born. That could have been 'the one' on my boy list.

nigglewiggle Fri 21-Aug-09 20:55:18

What's wrong with "The Sharkey?" wink

Platesmasher Fri 21-Aug-09 20:56:38

it's nice. quite harsh sounding iyswim.

MIAonline Fri 21-Aug-09 21:02:15

Love it.

Like the full name and the nn, especially with the surname.

Tillyscoutsmum Fri 21-Aug-09 21:17:25

Ooooh - quite positive so far smile

'A good heart, these days, is hard to find...' <<warbles in bad Irish accent.

Seriosly though, fergus is lovely- fergal, well, it's not as lovely (IMO)

shootfromthehip Fri 21-Aug-09 21:23:35

Meh- apologies for the typos- been on the port for hours!

Tillyscoutsmum Fri 21-Aug-09 21:27:06

envy at port... Little Fergus better be out before Christmas so I can have my port and stilton wink

and now I'll be singing Fergal blardy Sharkey all night.......

shootfromthehip Fri 21-Aug-09 21:50:47

Good luck Tilly- <<raises glass and toasts little fergus>> wink

Thunderduck Fri 21-Aug-09 22:25:44

I don't like it.

Fergus and Fergal are not related. Fergal is the Irish version of Virgil, whereas Fergus is a modern Irish version of Fearghus, 'manly', or such is my understanding of the etymology anyhow. There is a river Fergus in Ireland, possibly NI? I like the name.

MaggieBeauLeo Sat 22-Aug-09 08:39:47

Are they not? wow. that's nuacht to me!

love Fergus. Fergus and Clodagh would make a very good sibling st then. Kind of cheesey-lite theme, but only if you catch it!

Love Fergus
