    For some reason it reminds me of a monk!

    I actually really like it Even though it has the word 'god' in it I don't actually notice it or associate the name with God.

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    I'm going to have to be honest. Yes, Godfrey would definitely cause teasing, at least around here. I also don't think of it as a "timeless classic" (but that doesn't mean it's a bad name). Kids and society are cruel. As a MN, it would be great.

    Good Luck!

    I like it! Sure "God" is in it, but lots of names have inteteresting words involved and do just fine. If it were me, I would use it as a middle name though, just because while I think its cool I know many may not like it was their name, but a middle, awesome! Love that it has family significance to you as well.

    Thanks for the reply, I have been trying to think along alternative lines but I think Gottfried with no German connection would be to difficult to explain and I know a truly awful Geoffrey who has put me off the name for life. Maybe the Italian Giotto? My husband (Sean) has forbidden any crazy Irish spellings after a lifetime of misplaced 'h' and 'w's. Also I'd still prefer Godfrey. Oh dear.

    Many thanks for all the input, maybe we need to go with it as a middle name. Thus the search begins again.
