Would I be doing a terrible disservice to a son if he were named Montgomery? He would be called Monty a lot of the time. Kind thoughts or opinions?
I like Montgomery a lot! Very retro :)
I actually really like it! Not sure how non-namenerds would take to it though.
@stephanie413 isn't Monty the cutest nn ever? It makes me smile every time I hear it.
@uselesskitty that is my fear...my husband and I love Montgomery but in a sea of trendy names, how will it sound?
@flamingo I have never watched an episode of the Simpsons. Is he a prominent character?
@kala-way, I have never thought of Tom/Tommy as a nn to Montgomery before! I like that there are more nn options than Monty. What do you think about the nn Remy? I think it could work in the same sense that Tommy does.
@jillianmaye love Montgomery Clift! Montgomery would honor my husband's grandfather so a middle name would get to honor my grandfathers! Both of their middle names are Allen/Alan so I think Montgomery Allan would be a great way to honor all of those men!
@svea & @ vicioustrollop9 I'm glad you like it! I would agree, names like these are coming back! Makes me excited to have some oldies coming back.
