Which do you prefer?

Gabriel -- love, love, love.
Jared -- dislike.

Jared: love it.
Gabriel: dislike, tainted by experience of a far-from-angel-Gabriel in dd's class though so am biased.

I like Gabriel tho I do think it's a brave choice. Kids may think it's a girl's name; DS2 was the Angel Gabriel in a school nativity one year and some kids asked why he was playing a girl's part hmm that's just their ignorance tho of course.

I know a baby Gabriel and he is lovely!

Jared is the name of a lazy and workshy student I know at a school I worked at so for that reason I am not keen.

No contest. Gabriel. It's a top, top, TOP name smile

Really dislike Jared, sorry.

Like both <helpful>

Jared, because I HATE the Gabriel. I won't even say its because of unreasonable reasons! It's just awful!

But each to their own.

Jared. Gabriel is namby-pamby. Jared is strong.

Def Jared, a nice strong name.

Gabriel is wet and the possibility of being teased with a nickname Gay.

Love Gabriel. Sorry but Jared has 'chavvy' connotations for me.

Gabriel - like.
Jared - dislike. The sound of jarrs, it even looks like jarred.

(Even my iPhone doesn't like it: autocorrects Jared to Jaded!)

Love Jared, it was on my list!

Gabriel is a bit of a wet fish of a name.

cece Fri 16-Sep-11 17:10:42

Dislike both but for different reasons.

LOVE Gabriel.
HATE Jared.

Sorry but that was the easiest name preference question ever!

Jared. Bit American, but Gabriel is pretentious.

I also taught an 'evil' Jared once so suspect that's why I feel so strongly about it!

I really like both. We do have a Prince Jared in Playmoland though, so I suppose that might swing it.......

am a bit sad at all the dislikes of ds2 name! I think its lovely and unusual without being pretentious. I haven't come across another Jared yet (sw england).
