Think I’ve found the perfect name for DD. Disclaimer: DD’s first name translates to ‘loveable’ in husband’s native language.

So DS name could be … ‘Mungo’. It’s Celtic for loveable too.

How bad is it?

Mungo… time for dinner!
Awesome job Mungo!
Let’s talk about Mungo’s school report.

Please someone tell me it’s a grower.

I thought it was a name for a male, as in Mungo Jerry.

Please don’t. As wrong as it is to bully - he will most definitely be bullied.

Isn’t that what Mowgli in The Archers got his name changed to? No laughing from me, I hate the mocking of names people personally dislike on here. Have you shared with your dh?

It's not great. How about Murdo? Which is also not great, but better than Mungo.

At the risk of sounding snobby/elitist I think this is a name where it probably does depend on where you live/what other names are in the area. I can imagine some places where people would be unkind and others where people wouldn’t bat an eyelid.

Reminds me of the horror film Lake Mungo which is easily one of the most eerie films I’ve ever watched.

Patron Saint of Glasgow.
Famous explorer Mungo Park.
It’s a fine Scottish name.

I was at school with a guy called Mungo. He wasn’t slagged about his name.

No, sorry.

It's one of those names thats a great name for a pet, but not a child.

I feel like there was a Mungo in Harry Potter? I think it’s ok.

St Mungo is the patron saint of Glasgow so the name is widely known there though I’ve never met anyone called Mungo. Also St Mungo was a man. A pp suggested murdo which is more common in Scotland but is also a boys name.

Nope.

I'm old enough to remember the cartoon Mary, Mungo and Midge. Mungo was a dog.
