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

OP are you my long lost twin?! I'm having this exact dilemma... plus you posted your original post on my birthday!!
We've been considering Ethan, Zachary, Jacob and potentially Isaac as alternatives smile

Wasn't because of Chris Evans?

Noah is such an awful story though, I don't get how people can look past all the slaughter and evil, and use the name.

See here / and here.

How about Conan?

I have only ever met 1 Noah so would hardly call it popular here. Every child round here is called Zack with a brother called Max or Sam.

To add my son is the only Noah is his school of 450 chikdren so not so popular here in the South.

What about Boaz? (pronounced Bo-az). It sounds a bit like Noah and it is a biblical name (Old Testament), like Noah. Boaz was a rich farmer.
