Sounds like a soap opera name -- at age 30, Brick learns he gas an evil twin, Bolt. Or is Bolt the good twin and Brick the evil one?

I always say I am gonna get a cat one day and name it Brick... Cute for a kitty, not so much for an actual child.

This is just not an attractive object to be named after.

Also, "thick as a brick" is a saying meaning "really stupid".

I agree, but I still think they're both pretty harsh. Teasing is very easy to come with this name ( As well as with Stone ).

sherlockedout Says:


To be honest, I would much prefer Stone to Brick.

Nozomi Says:


Whats next? Cement? Or how about Stone? -.-
