My current faves for boys are all on a biblical theme! Which do you prefer? Loved Noah for years but now I'm worried it's ubiquitous!

I like Elijah best of those smile Noah is a bit faddy and Caleb a bit clunky.

I love Elijah (desperately wanted a little Eli but OH didn't like it), and Caleb was also on my list.

I have two of those three! I know several boys with each name - which I think goes to show that they are quality names.

I know children with all those names. Like all three but my favourite is probably Elijah

Spiderlight yes my DH needs a little persuading on Elijah too! Not sure why, I think it's gorgeous

Purpleturtle you obviously have exceptional taste smile

I love Noah. I like all 3 names, but Noah best smile

I have an Elijah, now aged 3. It's a great name and my favourite of your suggestions. We don't know any other Elijah's IRL so at the moment it's not too common.

I like Elijah, then Caleb. I loved Noah when pg 8 years ago - but now know several.

My dd2 would have been a Caleb or a Rueben if she was a boy!!

chickensaresafehere Wed 05-Oct-11 14:16:12

Sorry that should have been Reuben!!

Hello Bird - you aren't about 6 days overdue are you...?

Caleb is my vote.

birdofthenorth Wed 05-Oct-11 15:01:29

Boobz no, only just got BFP!! Is there another m2b out there with such good taste as to be mulling over this shortlist?!

Chickens DH & I both loved Reuben when pg with DC1... made the mistake of telling MIL who reacted like we'd said Adolf. That was the first and last time she was/ will be consulted on names!

Boobz Wed 05-Oct-11 15:18:04

Someone from another forum I'm on is nearly a week overdue with your names as well! Not a mum forum..

Anyway, Caleb (Cal) hands down.

Congratulations!

Noah is by far the best smile (i may have a 16 week old with that name smile )

I am pg again and Elijah is on the list this time round smile

birdofthenorth Wed 05-Oct-11 17:28:29

Jez lovely taste in names! 16 week gap in between DCs- you are brave! And you may be my new hero, I shall tell my mum about you when she next moans my 13 month gap between pregnancies is too short!

Elijah. Gorgeous, gorgeous name.

Another vote for Elijah, followed by Caleb then Noah. All nice names though smile.

jezebelle Thu 06-Oct-11 10:33:45

It was so not planned !!! My ds was 11 weeks when i got a positive pg test !! still, i get to choose lovely names smile there was a 15 month gap between my 11 and 10 yr old !!

Noah. Don't like Elijah at all - Eli sounds whiny. Caleb ok.
