Titus?? — The Bump
Baby Names

Titus??

DH and I are early in the naming process.  We really like the idea of an older name (something clearly not made-up) with relatively easy spelling.  We also want to stay out of the top ~50-100ish names.  (Both DH and I have names in the top 25 for our birth years and have always shared our names with classmates/coworkers)  For a boy, it is essential to DH that there be an easy nickname that we like as well.  Which brings me to...

Titus (NN: Ty)

If you were to stereotype, what type of person fits with the name Titus? 

Thanks!!

Re: Titus??

  • A big brute of a guy, maybe a football player?

  • I think Titus is a very strong name, says the lady who named her son Alexander Tiberius. I like Titus.

  • It doesn't make me think of a type of person, but I think of the book of Titus in the Bible.

  • I think of a huge, strong, muscular man. Intelligent, but not overly-friendly.

  • OK... I guess I will call that a win for DH.  He had the "big/burly/strong" feel and I wasn't quite picking up on that.  Since we are both more along the lines of the twiggy mathlete, maybe that might not fit so well for our LO.

  • I'll own up to my immaturity and admit that my first thought was "tight a$$" when I read this post title. I don't care for the name and envision a brutish, bullying type of man. Sorry.

  • I like it.  Have you considered other New Testament names?  They fit your criteria of being older names with easy spellings (at least some of them do).

    Silas

    Jude

    Felix

    Simon

    Thaddeus

  • Oh, DH and I also loved Theophilus (nn Theo), but that's probably a bit out there for most people.

    Thanks for the suggestions!  Silas or Simon might work for us.  We really like Jude... but our good friends who are due a month before us just announced their little boy as Jude. Ah well, at least I will get to love on an adorable Jude, even if we have to keep looking for our LO's name.

    LOL. It took me a second to realize the connection, but middle school boys probably would be pretty quick with coming up with that one too.  Ah well.  Thanks for the input!

  • I despise the name Titus. DH and I live in a horrible little town called Titusville, and it is absolutely awful. The entire town is failing.

  • I thought of a bulldog, but that might be because I know one named Brutus.
  • I first think of the book from the Bible. I love biblical names (especially those that don't end in -ah), but I don't know if I could use this one as a first name. It would definitely work as a middle name, though. 

    It seems like an awfully strong name to give to a baby (or a little old man, for that matter).

  • I feel like this name is too much and would be much better for a MN. I agree with most pps.

    Names similar in style:

    Theophilus, Ramone, Bram/Abram, Maximus, Phillip, Ezra, Dominic, Roman, Dexter, Tanner, Oscar, Maddox, Todd, Joel... (FYI, a name search engine suggested Magnum for you, if you were still questioning if it is a brute sort of name...)

    GL choosing!

  • My friend's son is named Titus, he's almost 3 and super cute.  But he's also going to be a fairly big guy, his dad played football and he probably will too, kid is ALL boy, so I agree with others assessments.

  • I personally love the name Titus. My favorite Shakespeare play is Titus Andronicus, I was surprised no other posters mentioned it (but I guess that's cause my BA is in Theatre). I say go for it. It would be in my top 5 if we were having a boy.

  • I think of Titus Andronicus and then I think of a guy I know with this name and everyone called him tight assss.

    Ha!  B.S. in Theatre here!  Great play.  Bloody and violent but great.
