Down to two names for baby boy due any day. Which do you like?

Like both but LOVE LOVE Samuel. It's on my list.

Samuel but I am biased, it's DS' name. He is now 22 and has always been known as Sam. Except for when he was in trouble with the teachers at school grin

Theo, hands down.

Theo -best name ever !

Samuel. Popular but lovely

Theo, but deffo biased. Samuel is a lovely name though!

Samuel - from another slightly biased mum!

They're both very nice names smile

I'd only use Theo as nickname for Theodore, so if you don't like Theodore my vote is for Samuel.

Theo. I've always found 'Samuel' a bit wet.

Another vote for Samuel - I have one who is now 4 and has just started school -he's the only one out of 90 reception children in the school so it's not as popular as you might think...

Really love both but Samuel is becoming quite popular here......Theo is gorgeous and suits both a cute wee toddler AND a strapping teenager! My vote goes to Theo! Oh and Congratulations!! grin

Tough call though!

I have a Theodore.
Love calling him by his real name. His friends call him Theo, my daughter calls him Teddy.

Samuel is great.
So is Theo ... so long as it is short for the love full name Theodore, meaning gift of God. Theo just means God in Greek and it seems very odd to me to call one's child God'! Think Theodore ('Teddy') Roosevelt!
