Re: Another Name Poll

Okay since you asked I voted 'eh it's okay.' I don't think it fits with your other children's names, you've given them all pretty classic, strong male names and then Milo seems very trendy and I think he might have a harder time when he gets to becoming an adult and building a career. I really like the name Lulu for a girl but I won't pick it because its cute when they're little but not so much as an adult... sorry. I do like Milo as a middle name though.

I hope I didn't offend and I am not trying to be rude if it comes off that way.

Re: Another Name Poll

Milo was on our list, but I crossed it off because of the popularity. I like Milo Anthony though.

Not offensive at all. Thanks for sharing your reasoning, it helps!

Re: Another Name Poll

I think Milo is ok, I prefer Miles. The reason I don't like Milo is that it reminds me of Elmo and I prefer classic names. LOL

I gave you all sorts of name advice, now it's your turn. Thanks.

I think it's interesting to hear what people think of names. I think it's especially interesting that a couple of people have said that they don't think of Milo as a "classic" name. I am surprised because I do think of it as an old fashioned and "classic" name since it goes at least all the way back to medieval times in historic figures and until the last few years, it was most popular in the US from 1880-1935(ish) (at roughly it's current popularity). When I hear it I thought "classic" right away. So it's interesting to see that other people do not hear it that way.

Anyone else think it's "classic" besides me?

Resurrected thread!

Milo's not on the short list anymore. We keep changing our minds.

Re: Another Name Poll

I like the name. I don't know if it matters but the first thing it made me think of was the basketball player Carmelo Anthony since many people call him Melo. Not the same as Milo Anthony but close.

What names are on your list now?

Re: Another Name Poll

Love it! It's a little different than some of your other kid's names, but fits with others like Oliver. Go with it!
