Friend has called her son this.I quite like it.

Each to their own.

It's very hillbilly chic.

He's the baddie mole in Duncton Wood, iirc.

It makes me think of the crazy/weird/horrible cousin from Gilmore Girls.

I know a Rune. It suits him, and although I was a bit unsure at first I do quite like it.

It's a Norwegian name , pronounced ROO-neh, with a rolling r. How does our frind pronounce it?

Isn't that like being called Letter or Number?

I think I might name my next child Hieroglyph. Heiro for short.

Oh rune the evil mole! It's been a while since I heard his name.

He was a really nasty piece of mole-work.

Very normal name in Denmark I knew several as a child

It means a symbol doesn't it? carved in to a cave wall or a tablet of stone.

NoRoomForMeInMyBed Sat 09-Feb-13 21:09:06

I have seen a thread also talking about Hugo. Hugo Rune!

It means Secret. Like it but not brave enough to use it.

I became a Gilmore girls expert on maternity leave but I can't remember a horrible cousin called rune?

Erik Yep he's Jackson's weird little cousin. He was in a couple of episodes at the end of first series iirc.

Sookie convinces Lorelai to go on a date with him. He's horrible to her and calls her a giantess grin
