What do you think about the name Cass for a boy? A friend is thinking about using the name, she heard it on a TV show the other day.

I have mixed feelings, I'm not a huge fan of the name plus I knew a Cass when I was in high school and he was not really a good person.

Opinions?

It's a nice Irish name. I would personally rather see someone use Cassair (CAS-sir) or Cassán (CAS-awn) because Cass is technically a short form of those ... but it's still good.

I don't really like it, you know it will be shortened to ***** when kids want to make fun of him.

I prefer Cash too. Cass reminds me of a nn for Cassandra or Cassidy

I've only ever known it as a nn for my 2 friends named Cassandra, one is Cassie and the other Cass so I can't see it on a boy

Im Irish and I have to say I have never heard any of those names used over here

Personally Its NMS, it seems more of a feminine name

Cash is definitely not an option for them. And personally, I don't blame them because I don't like Cash either.

As far as it being shortened to *****... Probably not that big of a deal to them because really, any child will find a way to make fun of someone else if they really want to.

I'm still on the fence with this name, but that doesn't really matter because it isn't my child

I didn't say it's common today. I have no idea what names are popular in Ireland right now.

Cassair and Cassán are both very old names. I doubt they've been used in a very long time, but I'd still prefer them over Cass, which I think of as a nickname!
