Baby boy due in March and these are (potentially) our top three name:

Jonah
Caleb
Jude

Middle name is not settled but likely to be William or Arthur after family.

Which do you like? Dislike? Really can't decide!

I know it's popular, but I'm not keen caleb. Reminds me of the evil preacher in Buffy blush.

Really like the other two though. At a push, Jude, but if you ask again tomorrow I might say Jonah.

I like Jonah, although perhaps consider what it rhymes with.

I like Jude.

Caleb I don't really like, I'm not sure why, if kind of reminds me of earlobe.

I like Jonah best, and think it would go well with William as middle name. The endings of Jonah and Arthur sound too similar IMO.

FarrowandBallAche Tue 16-Feb-16 15:16:37

Jude then Jonah. Don't like Caleb.

Jonah.

I don't like Caleb, I know it's a biblical name but it has the same sound as those 'Kayden/Jayden' names to my ears and therefore I'm not keen.

Jude Arthur = lovely.

Don't like Jonah or Caleb.

Jude
Then caleb don't like Jonah sorry.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Tue 16-Feb-16 16:35:39

I like Jude. Not keen on Caleb or Jonah

DramaAlpaca Tue 16-Feb-16 16:38:36

I like them all, and the middle names, so I'm not much help!

As combinations I'd be inclined to go for:
Jude Arthur
Caleb William
Jonah William

It would also depend on what goes best with the surname.

Jude William

SpoonfulOfJam Tue 16-Feb-16 20:33:14

Love them all. If I were you I'd probably wait now to meet the baby and decide which names suit best.

Izzieee Tue 16-Feb-16 20:37:05

I like Jonah and Caleb; I've never been keen on Jude! Jonah is my favourite smile

lljkk Tue 16-Feb-16 20:43:10

Callum or Calvin, not Caleb?

Jude is a cool surfer dude! (in my mind anyway)

Caleb and Jonah are sitting on the beach wearing socks with sandals.

Haha I love some of your associations! Jonah is probably my current favourite.

What about Luke? Dh likes this and it's currently the outsider but could grow on me!

LookingForAdvice12345 Wed 17-Feb-16 11:44:19

Love Luke!

SerenityReynolds Wed 17-Feb-16 11:46:53

They are all nice. My least favourite is probably Jude, mainly because I can't stand the song! blush

Ikeameatballs Wed 17-Feb-16 11:49:57

Agree with DramaAlpaca on the combinations.

Luke William and Luke Arthur work well, as does Luke Arthur William if you fancied using both.

FoxMuldersWife Wed 17-Feb-16 12:07:25

I'd go for Jude, it's a lovely name

Quercus3 Wed 17-Feb-16 12:16:01

Jonah is lovely

Maryz Wed 17-Feb-16 12:18:11

I like all of them, which is unusual for me on a baby names thread.

I think you should go for Jonah in memory of possibly the coolest man ever, preferably Jonah William. Luke is my second favourite, so you could have Luke Arthur (as long as you aren't cockney, Arfur is just too EE for me grin).

ThroughThickAndThin01 Wed 17-Feb-16 12:18:27

Luke by a million miles.

Maryz Wed 17-Feb-16 12:19:40

Oops, forgot phot confused

This is Jonah Lomu, who I nearly named ds2 after; ds2 hasn't forgiven me for not doing so.

gunting Wed 17-Feb-16 12:29:18

I love Jonah, i was going to use it for DS but he's Joel which isn't much different.
