Huck?

Is [name_m]Huck[/name_m] too much like “f*ck?” When I say it aloud, they feel almost interchangeable. [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] is still on my list, but I just don’t think I could go through with [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] as a first name.

I’m conflicted because it’s only one letter away but [name_m]Huck[/name_m] is so goshdarn cute… I think you could probably get away with it

For me personally, it’s too close. I’m not a fan of [name_m]Tucker[/name_m] or any name that has that sound.

It’s probably okay as a middle name but I wouldn’t recommend it as a first name.

I have the same reservations about [name_m]Huck[/name_m]. And [name_m]Tucker[/name_m] as @choupette said. I like it too but I feel like once kids start figuring out cuss words there could be a lot of teasing. It is cute though :sob:
I have sort of similar reservations about [name_u]Rex[/name_u] being too close to the word sex and potential teasing. Although that one doesn’t bother me as much because it’s a more common name.

yeah i do think its a little too similar. if it it didn’t have those connotations it would be cute but i think a lot of people wouldn’t be able to see past that

@choupette is reading my mind, I have the exact same thought. People say that kids will come up with a way to make fun of anything, but [name_m]Huck[/name_m]/[name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m], [name_m]Tucker[/name_m]…they just make the road shorter, so to speak.

I really considered this name for awhile, along with [name_m]Tucker[/name_m]. I came to the conclusion that neither name was usable for me. [name_m]Tucker[/name_m] is still a gp for me.

[name_m]Huck[/name_m] is the cutest name. So is [name_m]Tuck[/name_m]. I really wish they were more usable! I agree with other posters that they unfortunately probably aren’t.

By the way, I love [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] so much. it is SO adorable!

I LOVE [name_m]Tucker[/name_m]. I’m due in [name_f]September[/name_f], and that was #1 on my list…until my brother in law pointed out all the things you can rhyme with it. :sob::sob::sob: I think [name_m]Huck[/name_m] is probably the same.

This is a fabulous combo! I think a [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] could very easily and naturally be called [name_m]Huck[/name_m], especially considering that the very similar [name_m]Hank[/name_m] is a traditional nickname for [name_m]Henry[/name_m].

Personally, I find [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] a bit much as a first name, although the [name_m]Huck[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u] / [name_f]Moon[/name_f] [name_u]River[/name_u] associations are nice.

[name_m]Huck[/name_m] on its own definitely doable. I’d have the same reservations as you, but I don’t think it makes the name unusable (or unwearable). There are plenty of names that rhyme with something undesirable, but once you know them as names the association disappears.

I agree that I wouldn’t worry about the rhyming with swear words, like I don’t see that as a huge issue. As a first name I definitely prefer [name_m]Huck[/name_m] over [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m]. You could probably use [name_m]Huck[/name_m] as a nickname for [name_m]Henry[/name_m] also.

Ugh, I have to say yes. I love the name, but I would be too nervous to use it.

One of my friends has the tiniest, fluffiest little dog named [name_m]Huck[/name_m] and it’s perfect. If you can’t use it for a kid, maybe save it for a pet?

I never noticed and I think [name_m]Huck[/name_m] is super cute! I think [name_u]Alex[/name_u] rhyming with sex is a similar example, and yet people still use [name_u]Alex[/name_u]. I hope people see it as usable. Also if you’re using [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] as the middle name, I don’t think there’s much teasing potential since middles are so rarely used.

It’s incredibly cute and unexpected. Your child will have literary cred. I’d say go for it!

I’ve literally never noticed that. I think [name_m]Huck[/name_m] is so adorable!

What about Huckley? [name_m]Henry[/name_m] Huckley. I think it’s a way more viable option. You don’t have the teasing factor or the over-association with [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u].

[name_m]Henry[/name_m] huckleberry is super cute. I have a cat named huckleberry, who we call [name_m]Huck[/name_m] sometimes, and then we got another cat that we named [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u] and there were times that we accidentally said the swear word, but it is super cute if you don’t end up with another kid or pet who has a name that starts with an f sound.

I don’t think he would get teased because [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is a very well known name so he can always fall back on that if he wants.

[name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] is adorable!! I’m in love!!

[name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] has always been my guilty pleasure name.

I also like [name_m]Charles[/name_m]/[name_m]Chuck[/name_m].

I actually know someone who goes by [name_m]Huck[/name_m], and they’ve never had an issue with that. I say if you like it, go for it!
