I'm with 'EVERYONE' on this - it's not a name, it's cruel. Give him a real name and he can be called Chucky by his dad as a nickname.

Interesting first post.  Bored during the school holidays?

I'm assuming that as the "Child's Play" movies have been part of the cultural lexicon for the last few decades, this is not actually a legitimate enquiry.

It's a nickname for Charles (and a terrible one IMO). Call him Charles and his dad can call him Chucky for a few weeks before he realises how silly it sounds.  

Eta Damn! I hate falling for trolls. That's what I get for having a post frenzy.

I love the name Charles. I have a dear friend by that name and I sometimes call him Chucky. Why not just go with Charles?

Btw Wayne is dreadful in my opinion (and it's my Dad's middle name...poor guy! hahaha)

I think it's a fine name and commend you for joining the site to ask such an important question.

Now don't you have some friends to meet at the mall?

I think it's important that you resolve this issue as soon as possible, ideally before school resumes next week.

I prefer Charles Wanker, with the nickname "Chucky Wayne" -- a more "formal" name will give him options.

Good luck with your decision.

I personally don't like it & my immediate thoughts go to David Strassman's evil doll.

would you name a baby Chuck? Chuck is a known name, and i think Chucky makes it cuter and for a younger boy rather then man... instead of instantly going to the"evil" chucky doll think of just the name itself

Just in case you are serious...

In Australia Chuck is what happens when you drink too much. Chucky is what a refluxy baby is.

Charles is ok. Your partner can call him Chuck and everyone else can call him Charlie. Much cuter.

No I would not actually name my child after a common slang word for the voiding of the stomach orally either.

But I don't mind Wayne. It's a dinkum Aussie name that really should be in line for a resurgence  original.gif

If you are indeed serious then you should be able to tell from the responses that Chucky Wayne is a dreadful choice of name.  It's not harmonious at all and Chucky will forever be associated with a vicious ugly doll.

When everybody assumes you are trolling then you can safely assume that nobody seriously thinks anyone in their right mind would use that name for a baby.

That said, I've seen plenty of names on here that make me cringe so at least your son wouldn't be the only one.

It's a great name for a killer doll but not for a baby. There are so many names to choose from. Maybe you will find one that you like better.

I'm sorry you feel that way. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and perhaps suggest that these "horrible" and "nasty" responses are just a small taste of what your son may experience in his lifetime if you go ahead with Chucky Wayne.

Please, please don't call your precious boy Chucky Wayne. My goodness what an unfortunate name to be lumped with.  

How about Charlie OP?

No need to get all huffy, you did ask peoples opinion.

I think its a crap name for a child.

Chuck - Chucky is vomit.  Your child will grow up being called Spew or tormented because he is 'evil'.

Wayne of course if a very 70s name.  Using it as a middle name is lovely nod to your FIL.


Sorry but its got to be up there with one of the dumbest names you would call a child.

imho. original.gif

I actually don't think Chuck is that bad (as short for Charles). I immediately thought of Chuck Bass from Gossip Girl rather than the evil dummy - and I was traumatised by Child's Play as a 6 year old! Wayne I do not like; does your FIL have a better first name?

Posted 24 January 2013 - 11:49 AM

Oh it's cruel sorry sad.gif
If he likes Chucky maybe he would like Charlie and even tho its also a nn it's a lot nicer

Good Luck!

Charles NN Chuck is fine. And as PP states, Chuck Bass pulls it off well! I don't think of the doll as much as the red head from Rugrats!
