I like Tanner for a boy, what do you think?

It's a profession, not a name.

kidcreoleandthecoconuts Tue 08-Sep-09 16:20:46 sorry don't like it. smile

hocuspontas Tue 08-Sep-09 16:21:11

I like Bob better, or Florin

blametheparents Tue 08-Sep-09 16:22:08

Not a good choice, imo

No, it's ludicrous

unless you have 'chosen' his profession already and then you would need professional help

RubyBlueberry Tue 08-Sep-09 16:28:08

Nope - name of a pub where I live.

No, images of heaps of animal skins and the smell of brine spring to mind.

It's an occupation, not very nice for a name at all.

It's a surname. I do not like surnames as first names.

bellissima Tue 08-Sep-09 18:03:31

Like Tyler - it's a surname or a name for a dog.

twirlymum Tue 08-Sep-09 18:12:24

Elsie just springs to mind. Sorry.

Curing animal skins with urine extracts? No. Read somewhere that tanners were rather shunned in the Middle Ages as they were always so whiffy - if you're going to go for an occupation surname, Mason or Carter probably has fewer unpleasant connotations.

I know a Tanner, but where I live surnames (and particularly occupation ones for some reasons) are very popular as first names. I think it is a little odd.
