...Jasper?

And do you prefer George or James as mn?

AreYouAbleMabel Thu 15-Nov-12 19:20:18

Love love love Jasper and I think James flows nicely with it if you promise not to call him JJ which is AWFUL!

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Thu 15-Nov-12 19:21:23

I love it, i heard it the other day and i thought if i ever have a boy it may well be a Jasper!

And Jasper James is lovely.

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 19:23:53

Fear not AreYouAbleMabel...there won't be a JJ in sight!

Really love the name but don't know if I'll be brave enough to use it confused

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Thu 15-Nov-12 19:30:35

Why it's not odd, just not common.

Be brave!

Bumpstart Thu 15-Nov-12 19:31:59

Don't like.

Jasper James is our name if this baby is a boy wink

PickledFanjoCat Thu 15-Nov-12 19:32:58

I like both names georgie but not together..

PickledFanjoCat Thu 15-Nov-12 19:33:39

Sorry I though you were the op!

I like jasper. And i like James. grin

Yama Netherlands Thu 15-Nov-12 19:34:47

Prefer Jasper George.

Don't like alliterative names at all, sorry. James is nice though.

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 19:36:36

I know it's not odd and I have always loved it! The only thing that's stopping me is the fact that there aren't any obvious nns (except Jay or Jaz which I'm not a fan of) which means there would be nowhere for him to hide if he didn't like it...and it is a bit of a marmite name!

Geranium3 Thu 15-Nov-12 19:36:51

not too keen on jasper, quite a harsh name, prefer george jasper

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 19:38:36

Geranium3 - George was always going to be my baby boy name ever since I was little, but my sister has since called her daughter Georgie...grrr!

Geranium3 Thu 15-Nov-12 19:58:37

naughty sister!!!!
as long as you love jasper that's all that matters
but how about
felix
fergus
feargal
christopher
max
louis
good luck!

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 20:15:36

DH loves Felix. I wasn't sure but it's growing on me...

Also like Elliot and Rupert (in fact LOVE Rupert but I think I would be a bad mummy if we chose that one sad)

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 20:17:38

Geranium3...she knew it was my favourite but her response was...give birth before me and you can have it (she was 6 months pregnant at the time!)

I've made her out to be a bitch but she isn't really, and little Georgie really suits her name grin

tammytoby Thu 15-Nov-12 20:20:32

I think Rupert is nicer than Jasper. Jasper James or Jasper George are too 'j' sounding for me.

Rupert James sounds lovely imo.

ilovetermtime Thu 15-Nov-12 20:25:19

I knew a Jasper at school, he got teased a lot for being a wasp!

(but I haven't heard anyone call a wasp a jasper for ages, so perhaps it won't happen to your DS)

Strangely, I love the name George for a girl (think Famous Five) but really don't like it for a boy (Boy George?).

Love James though smile

Geranium3 Thu 15-Nov-12 20:27:45

if you think rupert is a little too much, how about
hugo
or ralph
sadly no more dc for me but if i had a ds iwould call him raphael, love it!
KatyAnn,if you are having a winter/christmas baby, how about Gabriel?
You sound a lovely mummy even if you had a ds called rupert!!!

PrannyHamster Thu 15-Nov-12 20:30:18

I love Jasper. Also Kasper. I would use either of these were it not for it being unworkable with my surname.

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 20:37:08

Awww thanks Geranium3, that made my day!

We're actually not pregnant yet, have my appointment to have the Implanon removed on Monday though so hopefully won't be long! Have wanted this for so so long...hope it doesn't take us long.

I'm already obsessed with names and am going to be insufferable nearer to the time...poor DH!

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 15-Nov-12 20:40:28

Jasper James has a ring to it.

Love love love Jasper!

Geranium3 Thu 15-Nov-12 20:54:24

good luck!
have you any ideas for girl's names?

KatyAnn28 Thu 15-Nov-12 20:59:24

Nope...I trawled through the top 300 girl's names the other day and didn't love any of them. Whoops!

We'd want a classic but not too 'old lady' name... but think it's going to take a while to find the right balance between the two!

How on earth do you choose? confused
