- Personal experiences with the name Jonty
My 3rd son is named Jonty, born in 2004 - and there have been several born since. We live in Melbourne, Australia. He attended daycare with a boy who has an older brother also called Jonty.
My second son is named Jonty Marlow, born 2013. Named so because we love the name but also in relation to his heritage; and regardless what people have said about it, there really are very limited negative conotations to the name. It has strong roots in farming and agriculture (I am referring all the while to Jonty) and can be traced back to at least to the 1600s in my family. Apart from the obvious "Jon" it can't be played around with too much!
