These vs. Names
What do you think of Skipper, Gilligan and Thurston for boys names? Yes, I know they are from Gilligan’s Island but I like them, they are a guilty pleasure name. What do you think?
The Top Baby Name is...
Have you ever read "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"? Those names totally inspire thoughts of that poem.
Fave to least fave: Thurston, Skipper, Gilligan. Honestly, I give you a thumbs up. These are unique and original but not over-the-top. Power to you, my friend.
Absolutely ridiculous! Sorry, but if you actually saw or heard these names in a professional environment, wouldn’t you think they’re some dumb prank nickname? It makes me think back to my first job, a man everyone called Wilson, assistant to the boss, because the boss always talked his head off and he was bald...
Thurston could work I suppose although it sounds somewhat pretentious.The other two-no way!
I didn’t say I would actually use them if I did it would be middle names. Or what could Skipper be a nickname for?
Thurston sounds like a fat diabetic.
Poster 6- what the hell?!
Poll Poster- I feel like Skipper could be one of those nicknames that have absolutely nothing to do with the kid’s real name. I know a kid named Shane Padraig...who goes by Reid.
Yeah, I am thinking Skipper as a nn too. I was wondering about Thurston because it reminded me of names like Foster and Fletcher.
I kinda like Thurston! It’s cute. Gilligan could work; and you could get the nn Gill without even having to use Gilbert! Skipper is nickname-y. Not like how Tom is for Thomas or anything, but like how a Henry could be Bubba or a Franklin could be a Stretch. His name could be literally anything, but he could still be called Skipper!
Re: post #6
Thurst = thirsty, like a diabetic
Ton = huge, fat
