I live in S.Wales and only know of one. Have never actually met one, he's the son of a friend of a friend.

Is it very popular elsewhere?

Loads. Like, loads. I know 4 babies born in 2 years called Noah, that's obviously not including the older kids.

I know of four or five, all under 6/7. Not too popular, and I'm miles away in the north east.

Lovely name

NW England - very popular.

Lots . The last baby boy born to one of my friends is a Noah too. Not as popular as Lucas or Finn though.

I'm North East England btw

Mid Wales - quite popular, I know several. Often spelt Noa though (the Welsh way).

Norfolk, I know 2, one is about 2 & the other is 7 or 8.

I only know one. I like it.

Most popular boys' name I know of all babies born in the last 3yrs. I'm in Southern California and have 3 Brit Expat friends with Noah's and also 3 other friends from home (London)

(the expats are all from London too, 1 Noah was born in the UK, the other 2 born here)

thames valley. zillions of them. last baby I know was given this name

It will be the "wayne" of 2035 IMO

I've never met a Noah.

It is a lovely name. But - where I am (London) - it's almost a by-word for wanky middle-class. Eg, "I don't go to Whole Foods any more, I got sick of being run over by twenty little Noahs on their hand-crafted wooden scooters".

Im in Kent, and haven't heard of any.

SW London, three in DS's school. It's one of those names that's the same in most languages, so popular with multi cultural families

Noah will never be the Wayne of 2035 due to the fact that it is predominantly a middle class name. I reckon Kai will more likely be the Wayne of 2035.

I know one or two Noahs and certainly it's not as popular as Harry etc. I think it's lovely.

I don't think Noah will ever be the Wayne of it's time,by virtue of being a Biblical name,same as John,Matthew,Daniel etc.

Interesting to see where it's most popular!

changechangechange Sat 20-Jul-13 17:16:01

Jayden will be the Wayne of the future. And Jayden is also a biblical name! (Or some spelling of it is, anyway.)

heronsfly Sat 20-Jul-13 18:39:58

Loads of Jaydens round here, 3 in one class at local pre school, I think it will the Wayne of the future too.

PeriodFeatures Sat 20-Jul-13 18:55:43

Middle Class Name. There are quite a few Noahs around. I actually like it though.

Theas18 Sat 20-Jul-13 18:58:33

4 in a year 3 class of 16 boys taught by dh.

so depending on your social circle it's" frightfully common" snigger!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 20-Jul-13 19:29:44

grin at Thea

It's Jadon in the Bible I think Change

I'm not pregnant but am at the stage just before hoping to be. Noah is one of many names I like,possibly one of the more usuable though.
