Can I still use Miles...

… if my OH surname is [name_m]Weston[/name_m]? Or does [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] sound too… “directional”?

I love the names [name_m]Miles[/name_m]/[name_m]Milo[/name_m], but my OH has said absolutely not to [name_m]Milo[/name_m] (it’s a powdered chocolate drink in Aus/NZ where we grew up) so I’m hoping [name_m]Miles[/name_m] is still usable.

I think it is fine to use, and it sounds rather good with your surname. [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] - it’s very catchy.

I live in Australia and while I do think milo would bring up the drink association- miles is perfectly fine. I think it’s a great choice.

Not too directional at all. [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] sounds great!

I think [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] is a cool name! I also had [name_m]Milo[/name_m] on our list but my Aussie hubby reminded me of the drink ( i’m not aussie) and said no way!

Honestly… I didn’t even associate [name_m]Miles[/name_m] as directional until you brought it up! I think [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] is super cute. [name_m]Don[/name_m]'t let “[name_u]North[/name_u] [name_u]West[/name_u]” ruin your dream! Those people are the crazy ones. :wink:

[name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] is totally usable! I didn’t think it was directional at all until you mentioned it. I’m Canadian and we don’t use miles though, so [name_m]Miles[/name_m] in general doesn’t bring to mind the measurement.

Phew! This is music to my ears, thanks everyone. I’m really surprised that nobody else made the connection, but I guess I’ve been looking at it too closely. I’m glad everyone thinks it’s a handsome name for a boy too!

Absolutely fine.

[name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] sounds really good to me. I didn’t think of directions at all (and I’m UK so

[name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] is totally usable, not directional at all. Very handsome.

Thanks everyone, now to find an equally handsome middle name! [name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] is my current favourite.

I think it sounds fine. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_m]Miles[/name_m]!

@sunday - thanks! Lots of love for [name_m]Miles[/name_m] on Nameberry which makes me happy. Time to have fun thinking of combos. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Louis[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] is a lovely combo and I agree with the other berries who said it’s completely useable! Great choice!

I recognize the connection, but it’s not so blatant that it seems weird. I think you’re okay. It’s not like a crazy pun or anything.

I know a couple whose new babies name sounds like “I [name_u]Love[/name_u] You” when said (fn/ln), and I think it’s cute though definitely punny.

[name_m]Miles[/name_m] [name_m]Weston[/name_m] doesn’t go near that. I say you’re good.
