    Bartholemew Simpkins??

    Another question!
    I really like the name Bartholemew especially as I'm named Katharine after the church my parents got married and we got married at St Bartholemew's Church.
    However our surname is Simpkins...
    Does this just make you think Bart Simpson?


    Are there other nicknames for Bartholmew, or would it still come back to Bart...probably another name relegated to the middle position

    I love the name Bartholomew

    but Simpkins is a bit rough with it. Sounds like a little English schoolboy who would be beaten up.

    Simpkins is a cool name, but is suggests simpering so I would choose a first name that sounded more manly. Just for the teasing, even before thinking of Bart Simpson.

    I agree. Better for the middle spot with your surname.

    It does make me think of Bart Simpson. However, I don't think that too big of a deal breaker. Bartholomew is a cool and reall smart sounding name. For nicknames:

    Tolly
    Ollie
    Mew
    Barry
    Barth
    Rollo
    Rew (roo)
    Lew
    Lem
    Lemmie :P
