Jack and Jude is a twee combination imo. I would go for something completely different - maybe have Jude as a mn.

Jack and Jude are too similar.

Initial reaction, sounds a bit like Jack and Jill. I wouldn't personally (although LOVE the name Jude). But hey, if you love the combo, go for it!

beaditAli Mon 26-Sep-11 21:20:21

Not sure I love the combo but I do love Jude confused

I know someone with a Jack and a Rory and I seem to be the only person that thinks 'Jackanory' so wondering if a twee combo really matters?? confused

Too similar imo. Its possible that there could be confusion when calling the names out. Its also possible that someone like me would write them down in terrible handwriting very quickly and it would be tricky to distinguish between the two.

Jack and Luke
Jack and Miles
Jack and Oliver

We have Jack and Alfie.

I know two people who have boys called Jack and Josh.

Too much like Jack and Jill, imo.

Also makes me think of Jack and Jill

When they are older they might be opening each other's mail (if snail mail still exists then).
I know an entire family who all have first names beginning with the same letter and they have made the mistake of opening the wrong letters.

No, too similar. I do like Jude though.
