Ok we can't decide between 2 names we know his middle names will be vincent arthur g.... but we can't decide on a first name! We both love these names I know a few jacks but no gregorys I know of no jacks my sons age but still unsure, my other sons name is George and really want sumthing to go with it my mum and h2b have both said william but I think its a bit to royal?

Both are great.

Greg edges it, simply because it is a bit more unusual.

NewtRipley Tue 01-Apr-14 19:46:39

Sorry Gregory!

Gregory is terrible, Greg is slightly less terrible.

Go with Jack.

Gregory is a lovely name.

George and Jack sound too similar with the shared soft 'g' sound.

squoosh I cross-posted and now my comment sounds like it's judging your opinion! I wasn't honest grin

You are more than welcome to judge my opinion, Gregorys of the world probably approve wholeheartedly of you doing so! wink

Gregory!! smile

William is lovely with George.

Rafe or miles/milo or Seth

Jack and George don't go that well together imo.

Really like Gregory - cool classic underused name.

Thankyou last night gregory was edging it! We were talking to bump and saying names out loud which was nice them written down and hearing them is so different, also I think we were waiting for a kick of approval from bump, which never happened!

I prefer Jack but not with George (too similar sounding).
Saying that I would rule out Gregory with George too as wouldn't want brothers with the same initial (but that could just be me!)
Sorry, not very helpful!!

I've a,ways liked Gregory or Greg, I do like Jack too, but think it's been a bit over popular over the last few years. Definitely Gregory for me

Gregory is a great name, due a revival

Jack all day long. Gregory is a name I associate when a man in his fifties. Jack suits males of every age - babies, toddlers, boys and men. A good, strong name that can't be messed with.

Thankyou everyone I'm totally confused and mind boggled about names. Haven't a clue! I love Gregory and Jack hubby says wait till he's here to see what he looks like, its like he doesn't know me! But think that's whatg might happen

mandbaby Wed 02-Apr-14 12:58:06

I think Jack and George go beautifully together. Something else to consider - if you go for Gregory, your boys will have the same initials. Confusing when they're older and receiving mail.

Hmm true as both boys will have the vincent name my eldest would be GSVG and youngest GVAG, this is difficult! Might go for uncles suggestion and call him balthazar!

There are sooooo many Jacks these days so for that reason alone I would. Go with Gregory or as I'm not having any more how about Peter or Paul? I love simple names.

itiswhatitiswhatitis Wed 02-Apr-14 13:13:54

Actually George and Peter sounds nice to me!

plumnc Wed 02-Apr-14 13:21:59

I'm struggling with Gregory these days- my dcs pronounce it as 'gory' with 'gre' in front due to somewhat weird/unpleasant adult acquaintance with that name (and I find it hard not to giggle as it is quite fitting). Sorry not fair on you op, but highlights how kids can twist things.

MrsJohnDeere Wed 02-Apr-14 13:31:35

Gregory. Too many Jacks already.

William much nicer than both IMHO and works well with George.

Thanks everyone! With ds we knew by now and when we had 20 week scan we could actually come out saying his name! Think this one will be ever knkw as wiglet! My mum says arthur for a first name instead of middle name now

Jack and George sound great together. Not keen on Gregory.

Arthur is ok.
