    Miles vs. Milo - Which do you prefer and why?

    I really like both names. In fact, for a while I was going with Miles as the formal name and thinking I could use Milo as a fun nickname so I could be selfish and use both.

    Well, my daughter has a classmate - named Miles - who happens to be her best friend. She talks about him constantly. So now it makes me feel weird using the name and I'm considering just going with Milo instead. Unfortunately, my husband doesn't really care for Milo and says it's a pet's name (he didn't care as much if we used Miles and I chose to have Milo as "my" nickname for him).

    I wish I could just not care and use Miles if I choose to, but it's really kind of turned me off from using it now that her "best friend" is named Miles.

    So, which do YOU prefer and why? Do they give off different feelings or vibes?

    I much prefer Miles. Milo sounds like a dog's name to me.

    I prefer Miles too. It "ages" better than Milo.

    I like Milo better because I just have a thing for names ending in o. Plus names ending in s sound awkward with my last name. I do really like both names though.

    I adore Miles! Milo is chocolate milk powder here and I don't think I'd ever be able to see past that.
