DH has vetoed any other biblical name which has left us stumped!

It's not essential but would be a bonus if it began with J, but all we can come up with is James and we're just not 'feeling it'!

I think you need something with 2 or more syllables

Ebb's are good, or how about:

Luke Justin
Luke Jeremy or Jeremiah
Luke Jackson
Luke Jared or Jareth
Luke Jeffrey or Jefferson
Luke Jasper
Luke Jarvis
Luke Julian
Luke Josiah

Anakin? Vader?

I agree you need two or three syllables. Any good family names/surnames you could use?

Quite a few of the 'J' names on the thread are Biblical or saintly. How strong a your DH's objections?

HPonEverything Thu 22-Sep-11 16:00:05

They're not that strong - he probably wouldn't know most biblical names tbh, it's not like either of us are particularly religious.

I suggested Jacob, which he wanted for the first name so I thought it'd go down well, but he said "we can't have 2 biblical names".

I'll run Alexander past him tonight I think as that's my favourite of the ones posted. Also Jonathon, and I'm quite liking Anakin too grin

3 syllables is the way 2go!!

MyRightToAdvice Thu 22-Sep-11 23:24:13

Out of those suggested I agree, Luke Alexander I think is the best one, but I also like Luke Oliver and Luke Jeremy
