Is Monty Fox a cool name or too out there for real life?

We have been calling the bump Monty ever since we found out it was a boy and now hubby seriously likes the idea of it as a name - obviously would be Montgomery on birth certificate. With surname Fox I think you need a few syllables and part of me thinks it could work: good nickname, traditional but not popular and could work from playroom to boardroom. But I don't know if I have the courage to go through with it! Fwiw other options are Sebastian (which I love but is same initial as hubby and also name of good friend's baby so I'm not sure) and Douglas. Middle name will be Patrick after FIL.

Any advice much appreciated!

Oh I love it. It's pithy and memorable. If I were an employer I would certainly interview a Monty Fox.grin

Love it..
I have a friend called Isaiah Storm. I always liked his name and am very jealous if anyone who has a cool nickname! We have Horan like that one direction guy sadly and it won't ever sound cool.

Monty Fox is a brilliant, cool name - Seb Fox is cool too, don't like Douglas.

Monty Fox has to be the coolest name ever.

DS would want to be his bestie, he loves a good name.

I really like it.

It sort of sounds like a character in a book, though.

Montgommery Fox does sound like an action hero. Could he live up to his name? IMHO it is a bit Bear Grills - all rock climbing and killing his own dinner. Eitherr that or a Sherlock Holmes type.
It's a great name.
Not sure on the other 2.

Am a lone voice but I think it is ok if you are quite posh maybe but otherwise not.

Uppermid Mon 08-Apr-13 20:23:53

Fab name. I know a monty and he's a great kid

Makes a nice change from Alfie/ Riley bla bla bla....

MrsGeologist Mon 08-Apr-13 20:25:23

Doooo iiiiiiit! It's an amazing name!

Douglas is a lot better than Monty. Monty is a pet's name.

My DS's surname is Fox, he has his first name and ended up with two middle names so all together it writes as T.H.E Fox. We didn't plan it, in fact my dad only spotted it days after we'd announce it - the lady registering him noticed too. (That'll out me!)

I love Monty Fox, it sounds great.

Mellymog Mon 08-Apr-13 20:46:05

I really like it. If he was in my class i would expect him to be a character.

Awesome name!
