    I like it, although when i asked my DH about it he said "No way, that reminds me of Ron Jeremy" So I think it's off our list... lol

    I've known a lot of Jeremy's and most of them were pretty weird. I personally am not that big of a fan.

    Edit: Also a lot of kids would call them Jerm, and it caused a few problems back in elementary and middle school. Kids would say watch out for the Jerm!

    My husbands idol is jeremy mcgrath (the motocross/supercross racer) and I'm honestly shocked he didn't want to name our son that, lol.

    Ahh ok yeh I am getting the impression it is much more common in the us, it is really unusual over here. No one has said anythig to put me off yet! I mean if kids are gonna be mean they're gonna find something to be mean about so I still like it! Now just to persuade hubby!

    i dont think kids are as mean as we make em out to be tbh lol my daughter mentioned her friend harry ballslap to me once and i asked her to run that name by me again (i thought she was jokin) so whilst i was choking on my tea with laughter my daughter didnt even get why or what i was on about lmao kids only find fault in a name if they dont like the kid anyway otherwise they dont care a jot i dont think x
