What is your opinion of the name Teague?
What type of person do you imagine a Teague to be?
Do you think it fits well with Blaise?

I love Teague...it's probably my favorite male name right now and I *think* I could get DH to agree to use it but there are two things holding us back:

1. We both find Teague awkward to say..I think it's the ending part. It just doesn't roll of the tongue.

2. Middle name would be Gregory...Teague Gregory is a little bit of a mouthful.

Considering the above, would you still use it?

What type of person do you imagine a Teague to be? I'd imagine a Teague to be quite a deep yet witty person with a quirky side. Possibly athletic and definitely handsome.
Do you think it fits well with Blaise? I think it rocks with Blaise.
Considering the above, would you still use it? Yes I would def still use it. The more you say it the more easy and familiar it would become and although the flow of Teague Gregory isn't great I've heard worse and really how often do we use our full names?

I really love Teague for you and think it is slightly edgier than Zane or Reed and it really compliments Blaise.

Teague Gregory seems like a lot of 'g' sounds... but how often would you be calling out "Teague Gregory, get back here" "Teague Gregory it's time for dinner"..

if you really love it, use it!

I like Teague and it does go perfectly with Blaise. I think Teague Gregory sounds nice - esp since the mn has meaning.
Teague has the same feel as Blaise. Handsome and cool.

What is your opinion of the name Teague?
I like it, it's a handsome Irish name.
What type of person do you imagine a Teague to be?

Handsome, personable, happy.
Do you think it fits well with Blaise?

I'll be the odd one out and say that I don't think it has the spunk that Blaise does. To me, Teague is such a strong traditional Irish name and Blaise is anything but traditional.
Considering the above, would you still use it?
1. I think if you and your SO already find it awkward to say it's not a name I would suggest to be used on your child.
2. I don't find Teague Gregory to be too much of a mouthful - how often would you be using both? Probably just on occasion, like the rest of us and I think that's fine.

We pronounce it TEEgue. Thank you all so much for your opinions....several of them were exactly what I hoped to hear and echoed my own feelings

What is your opinion of the name Teague? I like it
What type of person do you imagine a Teague to be? A quiet and athletic type
Do you think it fits well with Blaise? Yes. Very well

I find myself dropping names that I find awkward to say no matter how much I like them "in theory" I need to like to say the name in order to keep it on my list.

I do find Teague Gregory very G heavy, but like others have mentioned, the names won't be said together very often.

Personally the "awkward" thing would nix it for me.

What bothers me is not necessarily Teague with Gregory...just Teague. I don't know why but I have such a hard time saying it over and over in different phrases. It just doesn't feel like it rolls off the tongue. It's the ending. I don't even know how to explain it.

What is your opinion of the name Teague? To me, it doesn't feel as masculine as Blaise. I think because of the name Teagan becoming a crossover name.

What type of person do you imagine a Teague to be? Honestly, I don't really have an image that comes to mind, other than smart and preppy.

Do you think it fits well with Blaise?
Yes, I think it could fit well with Blaise, but I prefer Zane or Reed with the mn Gregory. I agree with you that Teague is a bit hard to say... it doesn't roll off the tongue quite as easily as some of your other top choice names, and I really don't care for the name with mn Gregory because of all the G's. I'm the type that DOES use my children's full names when they are in trouble, and I personally would find the combo hard to say.

Considering the above, would you still use it: Probably not.
