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!

Just don't use Patrick as an alternative or else you'll have pat the fox... (Haven't read thread, realise this joke may have been made. Sorry...)

Cool name. Loving fox as surname. Lucky you!

Love it! Cool and distinguished.
Also love Douglas and that also goes well with Fox.

Not keen. It sounds like a fictional characters name and a bit ridiculous, sorry.

I actually really like it. A catchy name like that makes me think he'll be very handsome and popular when he grows up smile

Reminds me of Michael J. Fox so I think it sounds quite film star ish.

Did you go for the name in the end?
I love it but you do know its the name of the man in that kids film, big fat liar? grin

Amazballs name! I know a Freddie Fox and I thought that was cool, Monty is even better!

I love it too! Was not a fan of Montgomery but actually paired with Fox it's great.

I just had to let you know -- my youngest son who is now a successful graphic artist is named Montey Charles Fox. Montey is from my mother's family name - Montgomery and Charles is from his grandfather's name. We always got comments about how people really liked his name. And one last thing - he is a really cool guy.

we had a dog called Monty the Fox Terrier.
Was a very cool dog.

OMG Monty Fox!! SO brilliant!! He will be clever in a cool not dweebie way, really great fun, good looking and all the girls will LOVE him!! You HAVE to call him that - it is the best present you will ever give him.

I think its nice but surely can only be carried off at public school . . .

fussychica Wed 10-Apr-13 17:28:31

Sorry it made me laugh. Seb(astian) Fox -now that IS classy.

I love it!

It's great but you must set him up with a detective agency: Monty Fox Investigates
