Love the meaning and the name. There's a kind of quiet strength to it. Saying "hey, Hugh!" sounds a lot like "hey you!" which could be annoying.

Way better than Huw.

I think this name is very gentleman-like. I can easily picture a British lord by this name.

I like the meaning and the name in theory, but not the sound (breathy) and not how it rhymes with "phew".

No offense but I think of an old farmer when I hear this name.

Lovely name. Very established and refined in my opinion, but can also be casual.

I never did like the sound of this name. If you're going to use it, make sure your surname isn't Johnson, James, or anything that starts with a J or the 'jee'-sound. If your surname starts with those sounds, there will be ''huge ___'' jokes.

On at least one of his shows, Benny Hill had a character named "Hugh Jarse."

It's quite hard to pronounce.

This is the middle name of Brian Hugh Warner aka Marilyn Manson. It's also his father's first name.

This name sounds rather bland, and it unfortunately makes me think of Hugh Hefner.

I think this is one of those names that are masculine but still "sensitive" sounding. I would consider using it as a middle name because it's a traditional name in my family.

Hugh Dennis. The knuckly man.

A famous bearer is the actor, Hugh Bonneville.

The famous bearers that are mentioned: Hugh Capet, and the Kings of Jerusalem and Cyprus were actually spelled by them as Hughett and Hughet. The French Huguenots knew the king Capet with a ett on the end of the name. If you read the book "Templar of Trye" which was written in Latin at the time the Hughs were in power in Jerusalem they spelled their names as Hughet. Hugh is just a short pronunciation of Hughett.

Hugh Thompson, Jr. Was a US Army officer decorated for his efforts to save the lives of civilians during the My Lai massacre.

It's a nice name. But yeah, I guess it's better for it to be avoided if the last name starts with "J" ('cause of silly "huge" jokes). Other than that, "Hugh" has a good meaning and sounds okay. (:

Not a fan of this name.

My great-grandfather's name was Hugh, and I actually really like this name. It is short, yet dignified. Plus it isn't very common.

If my two year old had been a boy I would have used Hugh. I really love this name. It's not overly used! Plus, there are some great actors with that name and I admire them for their craft immensely. It does have a breathy sound, and sometimes it sounds like you are saying YOU. Plus, when he is a baby, people will call him "Baby Hughie". But I still adore it!

The meaning of this name is beautiful and unexpected.

Hugh is the name of Jimmy Neutron's dad on the show. He's notoriously unintelligent.
