I have an Oscar and a Saffi and now we have a baby boy who we need to name and we're really struggling.

We literally have days to name and register him!

Considerations are
Tobin
Jacob
Quinn

What do you think and any other considerations please

I think Quinn would sound good with the names of your other childrensmile
Oh & congratulations by the wayflowers

BadgerIsGrumpy Wed 17-Aug-16 08:10:46

Congratulations smile

Quinn goes nicely with those names.

MrsGsnow18 Wed 17-Aug-16 08:54:10

Congratulations OP.
I agree that Quinn goes really well with your other children's names.

Tobin was on my list - love it! Had a DD though.

I associate Quinn with being a girls name (even though it probably is unisex)

Jacob is a bit bland IMO, sorry, especially in comparison to your other DC's names.

On that basis, it's definitely Tobin for me.

Jacob and Quinn are nice. But - sorry for the negative image - Tobin instantly brought to mind the convicted serial murderer with that surname.

DoloresVanCartier Wed 17-Aug-16 09:06:06

I like Quinn, Tobin for me makes me think of Peter Tobin (sorry)

PizzzaTheHutt Wed 17-Aug-16 09:06:21

I love Tobin, Toby and Tobias.

Don't like Tobin for the same reason as PP. Jacob's nice though.

quitecrunchy Wed 17-Aug-16 09:08:29

Congratulations on your new arrival btw flowers

Another one who thinks of Quinn as a girls' name. Jacob is nice.

Bagina Wed 17-Aug-16 09:13:35

We met a boy Quinn recently. I just kept thinking "quim", but that's probably just me.

Dakota1 Wed 17-Aug-16 09:31:19

I'd pick Tobin, as I think of Quinn as a girl's name.

ayeokthen Wed 17-Aug-16 09:37:44

Tobin makes me think of Peter Tobin, Quinn is lovely tho. I love Saffi, what a lovely name.

wobblywonderwoman Wed 17-Aug-16 09:37:54

Jacob.

I would feel that Quinn was a surname. Unless Finn ?

Mottled Wed 17-Aug-16 10:52:02

Jacob, not keen on the others.

Mumtothreelittlebeauties Wed 17-Aug-16 12:16:20

Thank you everyone. I didn't know who Peter Tobin was so Google him and he's dead! It doesn't put me off name.
I did wonder if quinn to girly so interesting a few thought the same.
And Jacob my hubby likes but I'm really not keen on him being called jake for short!

Mumtothreelittlebeauties Wed 17-Aug-16 12:18:27

Thanks @ayeokthen we got a lot of stick for calling our daughter Saffi but I love it and it suits her! She's confident and bonkers lol

Pastaagain78 Wed 17-Aug-16 12:27:19

Quinn! I think that's a lovely name and goes well with his siblings.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 17-Aug-16 12:30:20

Oh no, not Quinn, that's far too similar to quim!shock

Jacob is nice.

WaffleOverload Wed 17-Aug-16 13:38:40

Peter Tobin is alive and currently serving three life sentences. A very evil man and the name Tobin immediately brings him to mind for me and many others I should think

Quinn is nice

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Wed 17-Aug-16 13:58:10

I love Quinn! Makes me think of the Bob Dylan song smile.

DerelictMyBalls Wed 17-Aug-16 14:06:49

Tobin is lovely. Jacob is a bit overused. Quinn is too much like Quim.

augustusdecimus Wed 17-Aug-16 15:32:47

Tobin is cool. Never heard of Peter Tobin. Wouldn't be bothered about it if I were you.

And Quinn sounds like a boy's name to me.

Mumtothreelittlebeauties Wed 17-Aug-16 19:45:46

But so is Oscar petoriois and I have an Oscar. I didn't know what quim was till I Google it!shock
