I have thought of a boy's name so perfect that I am seriously considering trying for #3 just so I can use it.

I did love Gilbert in Anne of Green Gables' though - NOT the name at all but he was a pretty cool bloke. She called him Gil though and that was sweet. NO. still dont like it at all.

Isn't it a guinea-pig's name?

Or this sexy beast.

But you could abbreviate to Bertie which I love.

Ah, sweet Gilbert Blythe...

Gilbert Grape? hmm

As long as he's not overweight with rosy cheeks, I suppose!!

MaMight Thu 01-Oct-09 13:07:24

Hypothetical Gilbert would be a little brother to Wilfred.

I went to school with some one called Gilbert. Actually it was his surname, but everyone called him Gilbert.

In infant school he had sweaty hands. He threw up on the carpet big time when we were having a story, which made me feel really sick.

In high school he was sweaty and nervous and shy.

Maybe you could get a pet, MaMight?

At least he'd have his name already on his Rugby kit!!!

LynetteScavo Thu 01-Oct-09 13:24:52

Yeah, and every body knew which rugby ball was his.

LynetteScavo Thu 01-Oct-09 13:25:57

MaMight..that would be brothers called Gilly and Willy.

My ds has it as his middle name, I love it My mum's dad was Gilbert, he was a Dr and did lots of research into cancer but died in a plane crash when she was a young teenager. I would have loved to have known him.

Really don't like it, I'm afraid. And thinking about it, would it be pronounced Jill-bert or Gill-bert?
