Thread: A question about Harold
May 19th, 2013 05:17 PM #6
I love Harold right now! To be honest, though, I do see it as a bit of a fusty Grandpa name; but, for me, that's not a negative at all! It seems so gentlemanly to me, with an Old English feel. I think Harry would work very well for a teenager, which is the only age I can imagine Harold seeming awkward.
I also saw Requiem for a Dream recently and had completely forgotten that was the character's name, so I doubt most people would make that association, he's not a cult character. In fact, most young people are way more likely to associate the name with Harry Styles from One Direction, as I believe it's his full name (only found this out when researching the name Harold!), and so may see it as quite cool. I think the most prominent dimension of Harold is that it is a vintage classic.

I prefer Harald. It's how we spell it in Scandinavia, and it's a big royal name in Norway. It's actually the name of the current king, as well as two of the most legendary kings Norway's ever had. It's a big name in my family, I really like it, regal and handsome. Harold feels like a grumpy grandfather though.My darling Roo, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014
