Is Huck horrible?

We like the name [name_m]Henry[/name_m] with the nickname [name_m]Huck[/name_m]. Question is: is [name_m]Huck[/name_m] horrible?!
What would you think if you met a little boy named [name_m]Huck[/name_m]?

I think it’s very cute! I don’t think it’s a nickname that transitions well to school, though (rhymes with f#%*), so maybe when he goes to school he could transition back to [name_m]Henry[/name_m].

Nah. [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u] makes it cute on a boy.

Rhymes with the F bomb. I can’t get past that. Beyond that it’s a cute name.

I love [name_m]Huck[/name_m] and wish it didn’t rhyme with curse words (as mentioned above). Have you considered [name_m]Hank[/name_m]? It is a little similar.

I think [name_m]Huck[/name_m] is quite cool. [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u] is a great namesake to me.

i think its terrible

I love it, it just sounds so playful and mischievous, like [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u]. And anyways, it’s just a nickname. If he doesn’t like it or if for some reason it causes him problems, he can go by [name_m]Henry[/name_m] or one of [name_m]Henry[/name_m]'s other nicknames like [name_m]Hank[/name_m] or [name_m]Harry[/name_m].

I think it’s terrible… even with the [name_m]Huckleberry[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u] reference, I can’t stop thinking about how similar it is to “the f-word”. That said, if YOU don’t have that reference, I think it’s perfectly fine to use as a nickname, I just don’t like it for me.

I think it’s kind of funny, but nothing bad against it. As a nickname I think it’s perfect. Go for it.

Yes. Horrible

I love it as a nickname for [name_m]Henry[/name_m]! But like others have mentioned, it does rhyme with a swear word, which is a drawback.

I like the nn [name_m]Huck[/name_m]. I think its cute. I like both [name_m]Hank[/name_m] and [name_m]Huck[/name_m] for [name_m]Henry[/name_m].

[name_m]Huck[/name_m] is adorable, love the literary reference. If you love [name_m]Henry[/name_m], too, that would be best. Then you wouldn’t mind if he reverted back to his full name if he started having trouble with [name_m]Huck[/name_m].

I know a boy named [name_m]Huck[/name_m] – siblings are [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] & [name_f]Cora[/name_f]. Sweet family!

I can see why people have reservations, but I don’t think that those reservations are enough to dismiss it if you love it. It really is so cute, and pronounceable, and recognizable, and manly.

I don’t like [name_m]Huck[/name_m] as a nickname to [name_m]Henry[/name_m].

I like it! But I would be concerned about the unfortunate rhyme others have pointed out. What about Huckle as an alternative nickname?

I have always loved [name_m]Huck[/name_m] as a nickname for [name_m]Henry[/name_m]. But is it useable? I would say that depends on where you live, honestly …

If you are in a trendy urban area or suburban community where babies are being given vintage gems such as [name_m]Milo[/name_m] and [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_m]Otis[/name_m] and [name_f]Eloise[/name_f], [name_m]Leo[/name_m] and [name_f]Isadora[/name_f], I would say go for it – [name_m]Huck[/name_m] is definitely on-trend! I see it making a very slow but steady climb in popularity.

However, if you live in a more rural area or a small town where most kids get names like Braxtyn and [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], [name_u]Aidan[/name_u] and [name_f]Nevaeh[/name_f], [name_u]Jayden[/name_u] and [name_f]Jasmine[/name_f], I would hesitate at using [name_m]Huck[/name_m]. He might stick out in a less-than-positive way, not that fitting in means everything.

In either scenario, confusing or teasing with that F bomb is a possibility. I would worry about it less in the first scenario I mentioned.

[name_m]Huck[/name_m] is a masculine, earthy name with strong literary ties.

I would urge you to go for it! Good luck and be sure to keep us updated.

Yep, it’s horrible. I never saw the appeal. Besides rhyming with a curse word, it sounds like you’re bringing up a hairball. [name_m]Huck[/name_m]!
