Little boy due in March, having a hard time with names. DH and I love jasper but have had some negative comments off close familyhmm
Do you like the name?
What else could I like if I like jasper?
Thank you

I've known two Jaspers:

One was a cat (mine). He was originally named Jester but we renamed him Jasper. The other was a girl I went to school with.

So, I'm not really a fan because it reminds me of either a cat, or of a girl. I can't see it as a very masculine name.

I prefer Caspar. smile

It's not for me but j wouldn't let family put you off if you like it. Probably best not to share any ideas with them and just make the name announcement once baby is born.

LOVE it!

I love it. I wanted it if we'd had a boy but DH was set against it.

Don't listen to family, he's your son, not theirs.

Jasper is a boy's name not a girls.
I love it.

We mind a lovely, bright, cheeky little 5 year old called Jasper. Love, love, love it!!

It's a beautiful place in the Canadian Rockies. Gets my vote!

I love it

Can't say I am particularly a fan, but it would be a boring world if we all had the same taste - there is nothing wrong with the name, it's just a personal taste thing.

How about:

Emerson
Miles
Marcus
Elliot
Evan
Oscar
Benedict
Crispin
Jonah
Jude

My cousin's son is a Jasper. I love the name. Do it. Sod other people's comments!

WaitrosePigeon Sat 26-Nov-16 22:15:49

Really like it!

Popskipiekin Sat 26-Nov-16 22:15:55

Top name. I'd be using it for DS2 due imminently if DH hadn't vetoed. Please use it! smile

It's a name that I never used to like, but since having a nephew with this name, it has really grown on me. I love it.

SleepFreeZone Sat 26-Nov-16 22:18:36

Oooh I like!

NoCapes Sat 26-Nov-16 22:19:09

I love it, wanted it for Ds2 but his dad said it was a dogs name 🙄

Sophronia Sat 26-Nov-16 22:51:05

I like it

elephantoverthehill Sat 26-Nov-16 22:54:49

Dreadful name, do not choose it. My Jasper is 20 and I thought it was a bit different

BadToTheBone Sat 26-Nov-16 22:58:35

I love it, an ex bf of mine.

ricecrispies16 Sat 26-Nov-16 22:59:58

I love it. It would have been the bane I chose had my most recent baby been a boy.... I also got negative comments and strange looks but he's your baby! Name him what YOU like.
