Sounds more like an onomatopoeia than a name.

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!

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.

Not a fan of this name.

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. (:

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 Dennis. The knuckly man.

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.

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

It's quite hard to pronounce.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
