Remy – The other R boy!

I’ve been enamoured with Remy since “The Big Easy” back in 1987.  No, Dennis Quaid doesn’t ring my bells but I do indeed like Remy’s easy sound. His most recent incarnation;  Remy the rat, in “Ratatouille” is actually not much of a turnoff, either. I prefer the French pronunciation: ray-MEE, but don’t mind the English: REH-mee much either.   

He’s happy, cheerful & sprightly. A real winning trio for me.  I really like him when paired with my surname,  that annoying, gone to the girls Scottish Mac thing.  He sounds really awesome then!

I have a few combos I’m trying out today at BtN  Here also for your perusal:

Remy Oscar Valentin
Remy Edward Augustin
Remy John Valentin
Remy Oscar George
Remy Reuben George
Remy Victor August
Remy Francis Peregrin

My three favorites are bolded blue but I can find something appealing about them all.

I don’t think he’ll be overtaking Cosmo any time soon but he’s climbing up the ranks lately. He may just displace Remus since I have him as a nickname for Remus as well. 

How do these stack up against  Remus Edward Xavier?

Rex

My favorite of the “Kingly” names. He’s short, simple and oh so strong! I’ve gotten lots of ‘dog name’,  one  ‘sounds like a bark’ and even ‘pretentious’ more than once. I rarely, if ever hear anything nice about him, which makes me kind of sad, he’s so handsome, how can he be universally hated?

Wanna know a secret?  I love him anyway!

 

I think he’s pretty awesome, all that power in three little letters. I love that he simply *is* ‘king’ in Latin. He’s fun to write out too.  I’m working on using him up front in all his glory, but for now, he resides in third place in our second place combo: Cassius Barnaby Rex. I also have him as a nickname possibility for our third place combo: Remus Edward Xavier. Remy as his nickname is far more likely but take a gander at those initials, REX!  😀

Aint that just awesome?

 

What I would love to know, is this: of the two, which do you like better?
Cassius Barnaby Rex or Remus Edward Xavier?

 

Anyone?

 

And some Rex combos:

Rex Benjamin Arthur
Rex Lucien Malachy
Rex William Martin
Rex Julien Oscar
Rex Barnaby Edward
Rex Malachy Edward
Rex Peregrin August

 

The folk at Behind the Name will be voting on them tomorrow, I’ll provide the link here, when I have it.
