I used to have this on my list and took it off as I wanted more unusual names but it’s now peaking my interest again. Is it a usable kind of vintage name? I only know one [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] who is an adult. What do you think?

I like how [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] is both serious and sweet, mature but cute and chirpy

I think it’s usable

I like [name_m]Rupert[/name_m], it’s very handsome and offbeat. I would love to meet a child called this.

[name_m]Rupert[/name_m]'s a great name! Handsome and underused in my opinion. And Ru is a cute nickname if you need one!

I love [name_m]Rupert[/name_m]! It’s so sweet and charming.

It’s so useable. Really sweet and definitely needs to have more recognition

I wouldn’t say it’s unusable! I personally can’t seem to get on board with “Ru-“ boy names ([name_m]Ruben[/name_m] and such) so it’s NMS. And oddly enough I can’t picture it on a child or middle school age but I can picture it on an older man…? Not sure why!

[name_m]Rupert[/name_m] Grint makes it a little more contemporary, less [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] Murdoch. I think it’s totally usable.

I really like it. It’s solid and dignified, but also sweet for a little one, and I love the nickname [name_u]Rue[/name_u]. I do prefer [name_m]Rufus[/name_m] in the clunky-cool, old-school British category, though.

[name_m]Rupert[/name_m] got onto my Like list a year or two ago. Before that I would never have considered it. Probably the Nameberry Effect, you get exposed to so many names out of your comfort zone and suddenly realize you like them LOL! While I think it’s still generally seen as an “old man” name, esp. in the U.S., I think it completely fits with the vintage trends going on.

As a Canadian, the first thing that comes to mind is the place [name_m]Prince[/name_m] [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] (named after a nephew of [name_m]King[/name_m] [name_m]Charles[/name_m] I). I’ve never met someone with this name in person but now that you mention it I find it very usable, and agree that “Ru” is a cute nickname. It does feel a bit old-school but could totally work.

Not sure about a first, but like it as a middle!

Not my style but I’m sure it could work. I think of [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] the bear.

I’ve had [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] on my list for months now. It started off as an honour name and I gradually grew to like it in its own right. I will admit I still see it as a bit of an ‘old man’ name, even though it’s relatively popular in [name_f]England[/name_f], but I think if I met a child called [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] I could really get behind this name!

I have a [name_m]Rupert[/name_m]! It suits him so well! We call him mostly by his full name but sometimes Ru and [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] [name_m]Bear[/name_m] :slight_smile: I love it!

Not for me, but nothing wrong with [name_m]Rupert[/name_m]! I agree that [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] Grint helps a lot, but I personally can only think of [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] [name_m]Bear[/name_m].

I love it! [name_m]Rupert[/name_m] is super wearable, will age really well and could suit so many different personalities
