We are trying to decide on a name for our baby boy. We both like and agree on Noah. I know it is really common. Is it a bit chavy now?

I think it's a lovely name. I wouldn't say it's 'chavvy' at all

LolaStarr Sun 27-Mar-16 15:59:40

I love it!

Pumpkinnn Sun 27-Mar-16 16:06:23

I adore it!

I don't think it's chavvy, but I don't like it.

Great name, but suggest avoiding alliteration, eg Noah Norris

Nice enough (not chavvy) but a bit Biblical for me (not a Christian) but if you are then fine :-)

Thanks. It's such a big decision deciding on a name.

I think it has slightly lost its biblical feel! Not in a bad way.

JoJoS123 Sun 27-Mar-16 16:13:07

I love it.

I do like it but there was a really rough family at my son's primary school (he's now Yr 11 so going back a bit now, the daughter of the family bullied my son) and they had a Noah although I don't think it's a chavvy name, just a popular one.

How can Noah be a 'chavvy' name?confused

And aren't you lovely OP.

Floggingmolly Sun 27-Mar-16 16:19:18

It's totally overused now. Just like Finn God knows why

JoJoS123 Sun 27-Mar-16 16:19:49

Finn is my son's middle name.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 27-Mar-16 16:22:48

Noah and Finn are nice names, which is why they popular.

JoJoS123 Sun 27-Mar-16 16:23:59

Well, Finley is his middle name.

I think it's lovely, Noah is too. Honestly, if they're popular and you're confused why, you're probably the odd one wink

albertcampionscat Sun 27-Mar-16 16:24:30

Yes. Noah and Finn are nice names and they fit the single syllable fashion for boy's names. They'll date, probably, but that's not a terrible thing. It's not like all the middle aged men called Mark or David or Peter go around hating their names.

Lovely name just far too popular for me now!

I love the name Noah, it's on my list x

Bluesand1 Mon 28-Mar-16 13:03:01

I've heard it called chavvy on here along with Jacob Ethan Finn but it's a lovely name in my opinion and I only know of very nice Noahs

I don't think it's chavvy at all. Very common though. Is that the same thing? I mean there are loads of them rather than a class thing.

shez29 Tue 29-Mar-16 13:37:21

Love this name. If my daughter had been a boy we would of had Noah as a name x

It has become rather overused recently,

CPtart Tue 29-Mar-16 17:02:40

It's not chavvy but it's my single most hated boys name. I just don't get the appeal at all. It sounds like a strained protest!

Noah, as well as building the ark , disgraced himself when old by getting drunk and appearing naked in front of his children. I didn't know that when I chose Noah so thought i would share. I still like it though.
