I know - it's dreadful isn't it? Does anyone get called that any more? :shock:

Hubert's still vaguely around though, and presumably abbreviated to Hugh, or Hew. Even so ..... :???:

Hub!
Clarence is quite allright,
Horace...No!
Walter? Just..
Eugene, Tarquin....ant famous Tarquin's I wonder..

One of the few ancient Roman names that doesn't end in us, the rarely heard Tarquin has a decidedly creative, even dramatic flair, which could appeal to the parent looking for a strikingly original name. Sir Laurence Olivier used it for his oldest child, who was named Simon Tarquin but called by his middle name.

As Tarquinius, it was borne by two early kings of Rome

:lol: Tarquin sounds so posh to me. It makes me laugh.

Horace? That used to be a nickname for me. : (
