I love the name Albion. DH says it will be shortened to Albi (which I like) but there was a joke song by FLight of the Conchords called Albi the Racist Dragon.

Is that what you thought of?

Never heard of the song and really like the name.

please, please don't call your child Albion. I have no idea what flight of the conchords is.

I thought Albion Market

<sorry!>

Herrena Fri 25-Jan-13 14:00:55

Yes, I would immediately think of that!

What about Alfred or Albert instead? Old-fashioned names are back in smile

GirlOutNumbered Fri 25-Jan-13 14:02:05

I teach an Albert and he is so lovely. I do like that and Alfred.

MMMarmite Fri 25-Jan-13 14:02:15

Nope. I quite like Flight of the Concords, but I haven't heard that song. I think it's nice. It reminds me of Alfie, and also Alba in The time traveller's wife.

I'm afraid it makes me think immediately that the parents are National Front supporters.

Albion is, quite frankly, ridiculous.

And Albi would instantly have me singing the FoTC song. And sniggering.

I would think the same as your DH, although I do have an 'Albi the racist dragon' t-shirt which I bought about 5 years ago from the US. Couldn't get one over here.
Albi is lovely, but may be confused with Alfie, which is not.

haha stephanie...

Albions a no I think, but I wont tell DH he was right.

Badvoc Fri 25-Jan-13 14:14:45

Erm. No.
Just...no.

StephaniePowers Fri 25-Jan-13 14:15:55

What about Albert, but everyone calls him Alb, or Albie?
It's a really nice name (just not Albion!).

GirlOutNumbered Fri 25-Jan-13 14:17:52

I used to work with an Albion years ago. We called him Albi. I have always liked the name, but I can see the love is not shared!

I'm not actually sure I like Albi as a mans name, now I have written it down a few times anyway!

KobayashiMaru Fri 25-Jan-13 14:19:50

Makes me think NF too. Why not Alby, short for Albert?

GirlOutNumbered Fri 25-Jan-13 14:21:19

I really didn't expect the NF links, but I guess with the name maybe I should have. Will definitely steer clear now!

StephaniePowers Fri 25-Jan-13 14:21:29

GirlOutNumbered, did his parents look like this?

Kelerina Fri 25-Jan-13 14:21:50

Albi is cute, Albion not so much. Love that flight of the conchords song, awesome song.

GirlOutNumbered Fri 25-Jan-13 14:30:31

Probably Stephanie, I was working in Plymouth at the time wink

StephaniePowers Fri 25-Jan-13 14:32:21

grin

KirstyoffEastenders Fri 25-Jan-13 14:38:55

Haha, love the Conchords grin
I would assume parents were West Brom fans.

CruCru Fri 25-Jan-13 16:29:56

It reminds me of a pub and the FotC song.

VikingLady Fri 25-Jan-13 21:18:26

NF was the first thing I thought of too, sorry. Objectively it is a nice name, but perhaps not wise!

JugsMcGee Fri 25-Jan-13 21:50:16

Just reminds me of Plymouth Albion!

I've never heard of FLight of the Conchords or Albi the Racist Dragon.
