Such a sweet, cheeky little name. I like it as is but if I had to choose a long form it would be whimsical, slightly OTT Montgomery - love it!

That spelling would be pronounced Mon-tay. Which is fine, I think that sounds cool, but it's not the same as Monty (Mon-tee).

Raven Says:


I like the spelling Monté better, but overall i like this name

I'm considering this for my son, due in August. My name is one of those nickname names, and it's never bothered me much. Plus, I just think Monty is adorable. :)

In Australia 'full monty' is slang for the whole thing, it's a fav slang term of my step dads so that's all I think of haha

Emertecata Says:

Monty Hall on Let's Make a Deal kept me from liking this used car salesman-like name for decades, but now that I think of it as a nickname for Vermont, I like it.

I love Monty, and although I don't usually like nicknames used as given names, I might make an exception for this!
