Jason, because Alex is a diminutive.

Alex, never been keen on Jason.

I don't like either tbh, but prefer Alex.

Out of those two, Alex

Kassett Mon 29-Jul-13 16:27:50

none of them and certainly not Alex or Jason

Alex. Never liked the name Jason. It fits in the Wayne/Warren category for me.

I like Alex as a name on its own.

I quite like Jason too, but prefer Alex.

Alex. Cooler, fresher, snappier.

Jason is deadly dated. It needs to sleep for another 30 years before being revived.

Alex.

alex, jason was common (as in lots of them around) when i was young in the 80s.

hotair Mon 29-Jul-13 16:52:11

hate them both, sorry

Alex by far!

Jason is in the Shayne, Wayne, Barry genre to me.

Littlecherublegs Mon 29-Jul-13 17:09:22

Alex.

I don't mind Jason and it is less popular than Alex at the moment but as others have suggested I see it in the category as the likes of Shane, Wayne, Daryl, Brett, Gary...

Alex

But I have developed a sneaky liking for Jason. I have no idea why. It is 70's-tastic

You could shorten to Jay and that's sexier

usualsuspect Mon 29-Jul-13 17:35:56

I love the name Jay.

Mollie272 Mon 29-Jul-13 17:40:28

Alex - definitely

Neither, really.

If pushed I'd go for Alexander, nn Xander.

Not Jason. I had a very difficult Jason in my primary school class c. 1978 and I could never use it. It is rather 70's-tactic, not yet due a revival.

Alex, can be a diminutive of anything.

CPtart Mon 29-Jul-13 17:51:35

Alex, despite its popularity. Alexander on the birth certificate though.

DownstairsMixUp Mon 29-Jul-13 17:56:29

I prefer Alex to. Jason feels like "sharon" as a name. Needs a good few decades before it's "cool" again.

Alex, if short for Alexander. Not so keen on Jason, though not sure why. It's a good, classic name, and Jay is lovely.
