As its just too popular, and sorry girlies but its about to surge with the masses too- in 2014 theres a blockbuster out called 'Noah'. Many huge names, Russell Crowe stars as Noah (ugh), Sir Anthony Hopkins is in it and I think its going to be huge.

Can anyone suggest names with a similar 'vibe' to Noah we may like??

Many thanks x

As I'm from Manchester, Noel is too 'Oasis' for me! Thanks though

I have an almost 4 yo Noah. He is one of many (typically I didn't realise, thought it was fairly unusual, until after I'd named him) but we don't mind & nor does he.

On my shortlist was Elias, Elliot(t), Gabriel. Also like Arthur, Joel, Leo, Jonah of those that have been mentioned.

Thanks wombat, feel for you as it was also unusual when I first started liking it! I wondered about Jacob.. I know its high in the top ten but do you know lots of Jacobs too?

Wilbur?

We gave our son a name that was quite unusual, then moved overseas and his name is the third most popular name for his gender and age group here.

Have fun with your baby, whatever you call him.

Amos, Rodin, Saul, Auberon, Jett, Flint, Dali, Aaron, Joao, Ned, Jed,

Joe? Oh, god just typing that name make me broody for another baby boy blush grin

DS has a friend called Noah - he's the only Noah in a reasonably large primary school (Midlands) so not outrageously popular here. But - I'm not one to talk - 2 of my children have top three ten names.

Another thing to bear in mind is that the film will be in people's consciousness for a few months, your son will have his lovely name for years and years to come - long after the DVD of the film is in the bargain bin of the supermarket.

Lol! Good point! I hope he wouldn't be bargain bin name!

Oh Lordy! I didn't mean that it is a bargain bin name. I meant that any perceived popularity will wane - probably before your child starts school. Noah is a wonderful name.

Thanks very much, I understand what you mean ;) I wonder if anyone regretted not choosing their original name...

RockinHippy Wed 15-Jan-14 07:37:15

I've a family member who regrets her name choices, Noah included, but she's been very unlucky in that all of the DCs chosen names went from not popular, to top 3 within a few years of her naming her DCs & they meet a lot with the same names
