The names Reece and Jordan?

Turniptwirl Tue 28-May-13 21:06:59

Reece is ok although I prefer Rhys, don't really like Jordan

Lebkuchenlover Mon 27-May-13 13:41:52

I'm not keen on either, sorry.

I too wonder what makes these names 'normal' and what are 'abnormal' names?!

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 24-May-13 23:42:14

Usual - what's a "normal" name?

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Fri 24-May-13 23:40:42

They both remind me of the horrid housing estate I used to live on! Two of the most commonly hollered names!

usualsuspect Thu 23-May-13 20:04:28

Both great names.

Nice to see some normal names on MN

KittenofDoom Thu 23-May-13 19:55:19

Oh, I can't take credit for the fart in the drainpipe grin I merely passed that one on

ShadeofViolet Thu 23-May-13 19:38:13

I like Rhys.

Alisvolatpropiis Thu 23-May-13 19:21:36

I prefer Rhys and don't really like place names so not a fan of Jordan.

IKnowWhat Thu 23-May-13 18:42:29

They are not my favourites. sad. However, they are perfectly OK.

I prefer Rhys to Reece.

Got to hand it to you Kitten Chamber pots following on from farty noises down the drainpipe - another from Kitten of Doom's "Little Book of dinner party conversation starters". grin

ThePavlovianCat Thu 23-May-13 18:01:59

Not keen at all but I agree with the others that the Rhys spelling is nicer.

Rhys is nice.

Jordan is ok for a boy, not ok for a girl now IMO.

KittenofDoom Thu 23-May-13 16:39:49

Jordan is awful, it's another name for a chamber-pot.

I knew a Reese once, he had terrible acne and greasy hair, so we used to refer to him as 'Greese'.

AmandaPayneNeedsANap Thu 23-May-13 16:37:10

Not keen personally. Rhys is alright though.

Fragglewump Thu 23-May-13 16:35:07

To me they sound dated enough to be slightly naff but not dated enough to be cool again.?!?!

Secondme Thu 23-May-13 16:34:41

Not keen on the names at all. They are not silly, but they make me shiver.

MerryMarigold Thu 23-May-13 16:33:03

Think they're both awful, awful. Everyone is being so polite!

milk Thu 23-May-13 16:31:24

As in the chocolate and cereal brand?

biscuit Eating babies is an excellent form of Protein.

sjuperyoni Thu 23-May-13 16:14:43

Prefer reece/rhys. Jordan for a girl is tainted by KP and i just dislije it for boys.

TenthMuse Thu 23-May-13 15:54:51

Neither are my style. Prefer spelling Rhys, but wouldn't use either personally.

DribbleWiper Thu 23-May-13 15:34:32

Rhys - okay if you're Welsh.

Jordan - quite a common teenage name, although there was a 3-year-old in the doctor's the other day. Sorry, but I've met a LOT of teenaged boys with this name and (except in one case), they didn't make me associate good things with it.

Cameron? Joshua? Euan? Ryan? Hayden?

evamummy Thu 23-May-13 15:10:29

Not names that I would choose.

everlong Thu 23-May-13 14:17:50

A bit dated now.

miffybun73 Thu 23-May-13 12:16:22

Not very keen, but not awful.

It's just that out of all the 100s of possible names I wouldn't choose those two.
