It's a bit pretentious, imo.

It makes me think of the M&S clothing range for people who wish they were a bit boho but aren't really.

Sorry.

Grin I agree. I know a few little Indigos, very popular among a certain demographic. It's just a bit try hard.

I don't like it , I knew an Indigo a few years ago and she was nicknamed 'indigo no go' or 'indigo dingo' by the local kids at school.

Very stupid people think their spawn are “indigo children”.

Inigo is a name.

No, not keen. It's too 'trying to be different' IMO.

I know an Ingo and Inigo so I think of that. Both are German men in their later 40s which probably isn’t the vibe you’re going for! Indigo as well as being a colour is a low cost Indian airline so I think it sounds silly as a name.

Inigo is a name.

Inigo is a great name:

Indigo is not.

My brain chants ‘Violet‘ after Indigo.
Dingo is a brilliant nickname tho!

I've got a parking app on my phone called Indigo. To me it's a bit like calling your baby NCP.

However companies change their names all the time these days so it's hardly going to be a problem! If you like it, and you feel like it would suit your baby then go for it.

Just be very aware that you may look at your new, gorgeous baby and think "No, you're not an Indigo. Definitely more of a Magenta". DC2 spent an hour with one name while DH and I repeated it at her in varying tones. It just didn't fit, so we changed it to another name that hadn't even been on our list before.

I saw one announced recently. I was confused really because I didn’t think it was a name. Inigo yes.
