I love the sound of this name, but does it remind you of beef? Also, I can’t think of any nicknames! I also love the maning, ‘unique choice’. Please give me your opinions!
I like it too, but yes, it reminds me of beef . . . It also reminds me of a dog, because a character in one of [name]Alexander[/name] McCall [name]Smith[/name]'s series is a dog named [name]Angus[/name] (but that’s also part of why I love the name). But if more people (just a few really) were brave enough to use it on a child, I think some of these connotations might change, especially if we start to hear of more kids called “[name]Gus[/name]” which is a cute nickname I think.
I adore this name, although I do think of the infamous [name]Angus[/name] Burger. It reminds me of the name [name]Maverick[/name], actually. I think it’s a great name, though.
I definitley think of a ginormous cheeseburger…
darn – now i’m hungry
Beef! Of course, the upside to the strong beef association is that it is the only thing in the way of an immediate association to the word anus . . .
So, even if you can get past the cheeseburger thing, I don’t think this is the best name to use!
