What are your thoughts on Rex as a first name?
DH brought this one up, and honestly, my initial reaction was to group it with other names like Spot and Fido.
I'm curious as to what you all think.
mj.reilly:DogDinosaur...I think it is terrible for a human.
I think it's terrible. It's up there with Axel for me. SOunds like you are trying way to hard to be "hip or cool." Then it reminds me of T-Rex. Our cousins named their son this after giving their daughter a beautiful classic name. Everyone comments on his name, and not in a good way.
Stage name for a wrestler, boxer, or male...Magic Mike.
...I think it is terrible for a human.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who isn't feeling the love on this name..

In the minority, but It's one of my fav's
I also knew a super gorgeous male model name Rex, so that helps
I knew a guy named Rex in HS. The animal associations aside it sounds like some type of NN. I couldn't see Rex working when he's an adult. I also have a cat named Rex.
I like PP suggestion of Max.
Well, its on BTN so it must be OK. AND its classic and has a great royal meaning and has been used for centuries..... ;)
I dont mind it. I have a friend who has a Rex Sebastian- he is 3 now.
Anxiously awaiting baby #1! Baby BOY Due: May 30, 2013!
Don't like it, I would definitely group it with names like Spot or Fido. First things that came to mind were a dog and a T-Rex.
Lol to your siggy pic, what a creepy looking Santa!
