MamaG Tue 13-Oct-09 11:55:55

I was just going to reply "its a bit of fat buffoon name"

countrybump Tue 13-Oct-09 11:56:13

I like it, also like Monty

BarbieLovesKen Tue 13-Oct-09 13:20:31

Oh dear God no, awful. Really horrible.

sophiesmummie Tue 13-Oct-09 13:22:41

I like it. I always assumed it was short for Jonathan.

What is "knob's name"?

ILikeToQuickstepItTangoIt Tue 13-Oct-09 13:27:43

I like the name, it was on my list but dh said it was a hooray Henry type of name!

MamaLazarou Tue 13-Oct-09 13:42:53

Yes. Knobby.

broguemum Tue 13-Oct-09 13:49:30

I love it.

<<sticks out tongue and runs off>>

cece Tue 13-Oct-09 13:51:55

I love it, DS1 very nearly got called Jonty

mopsyflopsy Tue 13-Oct-09 14:07:58

I really like Jonty! Not sure I understand the 'knobs name' comment either...hmm

branflake81 Tue 13-Oct-09 16:42:13

it's a nickname, surely?

hulabaloo Tue 13-Oct-09 16:42:58

Short for Jonathan, isn't it?

RainRainGoAway Tue 13-Oct-09 16:44:25

Love it.

It is a great nickname for Jolyon or Jonathon - but it is very Rah!

halfcut Tue 13-Oct-09 16:46:02

very Hooray Henry

Scottie22 Tue 13-Oct-09 20:45:07

I love it and was on my list but was very much vetoed by dp sad
I also like Monty too!!

It is short for Jonathan, and it is quite hooray Henry. I quite like it, although I'm not keen on Monty at all. Just because it's a bit posh doesn't mean it is for knobs though. there are people who manage to "overcome" their posh backgrounds and actually turn out quite nice hmm

Adorable. But there is a little boy at dd's pre school called this and he is cute as a button. Then you can be Jonathan or Jon when you become a bank manager/rock star.

CommonNortherner Wed 14-Oct-09 14:46:05

lol! It was the name of an old English teacher of mine and I would've described him as a fat buffoon at the time!

Quite like it though! But that probably means I'm self-hating and secretly desire to be a class higher than I am!

Whatlovelynames Wed 14-Oct-09 14:50:48

I think its cute! I'd use Jonathan as a full name, to give him more options later on.

Jamieandhismagictorch Wed 14-Oct-09 17:05:43

Terrible, like Monty

DougalDoneGood Fri 16-Oct-09 07:39:17

I quite like it blush

I know of a Joffy hmm

drainedbrain Sat 17-Oct-09 14:18:17

He wears rugby shirts and chinos everyday. Is none too intelligent. Is inexplicably successful. That's Jonty.

honeybehappy Sat 17-Oct-09 16:08:32

it blardy awful, i also know a Monty he has brothers called Ned and Buddy. yuck

boodleboot Fri 23-Oct-09 19:53:27

but then i really like Jonboy and Jonjo so i don't think i can be counted on....hmm

ThisPhantomPlopsPumpkins Fri 23-Oct-09 20:25:01

I had such a crush on a Jonty, he was my high school history teacher.
