I like it.....

I've never met a dog called Rex, am surprised that in this day in age they still exist. Much as I'd be surprised to meet dogs called Fido or Rover.

They're all called Max and Lily!

Oh you two be quiet.

On another note, I love the name Rex, DH and i had just decided on it for the bump and I am mighty annoyed that a sleb has chosen it because it's popularity will skyrocket! Might go back to the drawing board on this one...

Wouldn't be my choice of name however my DS would love a sibling called Rex- he loves Rex from Toy story! smile

I quite like it. I've never met a dog called Rex either.

However, I did google (because I am a saddo) and no dogs came up there either. The first result was a hotel chain.

I love it, but I have a nearly 2 year old called Rex, so I may be biased. It is definitely a love/hate name. I've decided to be flattered that Fearne has such good taste....

My grandad's Alsatian was called Rex. The name makes me think of Woodbines, working men's clubs and drinking Dandelion and Burdock out of a chipped Silver Jubilee mug.

Not a big fan of Rex to be honest...although think its because there was a Rex on Big Brother a few years ago, and he was a horrible person. It's that whole association thing. i don't like the name Rachel either because of a girl I was in school with! smile

Yes, I was gonna say that too 2blessed. He was a tit.

It makes me think of Rex Harrison though his full name was Reginald I think. Rex is a pretty cool name.

My best buddy has a 18 month old called Rex. It means 'Little King' - very cool, and hence why people used it for dogs. Years ago.

I read that as relax!!

Thank fuck it's Rex and not that!

I like Rex too - although agree with squoosh that I'm surprised Fearne has chosen a name that I like so much.

I think Alexander Armstrong (who I like much more than Fearne) has one too.

I like Rex but I think of 'wrecks' so it's not for me!

brambleking Fri 22-Feb-13 21:09:29

I actually have come to realise that I love names that are 'supposed' to be dogs names.. My son is called Monty, my brother's called Toby, my nephew is called Rufus, best friends have sons called Rex, Wilbur, Max, Ned and Digby. All 'dog' names apparently!

Gunzroses, I guess nobody calls their dogs Rex anymore. they are probably all called sensible names like Matthew or Simon these days. The world has obviously gone mad.

ehmumbo Fri 22-Feb-13 21:40:05

Surely Ned is a horse's name...

brambleking Fri 22-Feb-13 21:44:19

I think maybe a Donkey actually....gringringringringrin

I loved the name Rex, although my mum had a dog of the same name, but was put off it slightly a few years back when that short arse uppity bugger on Big Brother had it as his name angry

birdofthenorth Fri 22-Feb-13 22:31:06

I love it. Good for her!

TheDetective Fri 22-Feb-13 22:36:11

I like it but Rex Rayne sounds just like Max Payne.

AntsMarching Fri 22-Feb-13 22:39:12

I grew up with a Rex, and he was gorgeous. Ahhh...

Also my dgm had a dog called Rex. I don't understand the whole "it's a dog's name" thing. Loads of people call their animals by "people" names. Unless you had a dog named Rex and then had a baby and called him Rex, it's really not an issue.
