Looking for opinions on baby boys name, Dougie / Duggie? What does everyone think??

I like Douglas NN Doug or Dougie, but don't like diminutives as full names.

I personally would not spell it Duggie at all.

The spelling Duggie is problematic.  I'd not use it.

I would definitely spell it Dougie as a NN for Douglas.

I would not spell it "Duggie" as in "dug" a hole.

I don't even really like it as a nickname, let alone a full name. The Duggie spelling also looks very odd.

I like Dugan slightly more than I like Douglas.

I don't particularly like Doug, and I really don't like Dougie/Duggie. Is it Duh-gee or doo-gee or one of each?

I like Douglas nn Doug or Deegan which sounds similar but different. Don't like the spelling Duggie I just think Druggie or Doggie.

sorry dont like either - although Dougie a little better - Douglas or Dougal would be better as a full name though

I think Douglas is a great name.

Dougie/Duggie aren't.

Sorry, neither are my style.

But I do like PPs suggestion of Dougal.

#13 Gudrun

Only as NN to Dougal, Dugald or Dougald.

I thought douggie was doo-gee. I dislike that  and duggie.

Teach me how to Dougie! That's all I think of sorry.

Dougal on the other hand is one of my very favourite names.

This. Dougal is good too.

I dont really like the name Douglas but it is a reasonable sensible name albeit now dated.



I dont think Dougie works as a stand alone name - and Duggie just looks wrong.
