Heath - nice
Leo - depends on surname but yes it's nice too
Noel - I personally do not like it.
Sonny - sonny don't o away.... mournful and a little odd
Zack - yeah why not.

Heath - sorry, don't like: too surnamey and redolent of the ex-PM
Leo - very Blair
Noel - only if born during the 12 Days of Christmas!
Sonny - nn only
Zack - I think Zachariah/Zachary/Zakariya are all wonderful names

Leo or Heath.
Noel - you instantly think Noel Edmonds.
Sonny - I think of the scene at the tollbooth in the Godfather.
Zack is OK but just OK.

Psammead Sat 22-Oct-11 19:54:37

Heath by a long way!

IHeartKingThistle Sat 22-Oct-11 20:24:07

I looove Sonny. I also like Zach but not Zack.

roz1982 Sat 22-Oct-11 21:24:20

Yay a vote for sonny!!

Heath - I am surprised to find I quite like it, it's not my usual style.
Leo- Love this. Considered calling my daughter a name that abbreviates to Leo because I adore the sound of it. Not posh, not common, not weird, not dull, just perfect.
Noel- Edmunds, noooooo!
Sonny- Not unless you've got strong American family connections. It sounds silly on the British.
Zack- Nothing wrong with it, but nothing grabs me about it either.

I love Heath and Leo, not so keen on the others, although zack could be a good nickname for issac.

I like all your names, but Sonny. I think Sonny is a nn.

kellestar Mon 24-Oct-11 13:35:10

oohlala i am with you on Sonny as a nickname, I'm not sure if it's that I don't like it written that way. Though we did threaten FiL with it when he said if we have a DS must have James as middle name, we were thinking Sonny Jim grin.

I love Noel, DD could have been Noel and was nearly Noelle. I think of the guy from mighty boosh before I think of edmunds.

I like all the others on your list.

Heath, Leo or Zack. Definitely not Noel or Sonny IMO.

Ephiny Mon 24-Oct-11 14:37:39

I like Heath and Leo. Noel is OK.

Sonny and Zack both sound like nicknames to me.

Youremindmeofthebabe Mon 24-Oct-11 15:34:54

I like Heath, Leo and Noel. Also Noah, which I know isn't on there, but I like too!

Can I add Marty please...have had good general response and it goes really well with our double surname.. What do you ladies think?

Greenwing Tue 25-Oct-11 20:11:12

Zack, Leo or Marty are best by a long way IMO, (better if you name him Zachary or Martin on BC to give him the choice later though).

Nick names as names can be rather trying for the child. I teach a Zack and he keeps having to explain his name is not Zachary. He is only 8 and gets really fed up.

Noel means Noel Edmunds at the moment and it means every Christmas you have to hope they don't sing the carol 'The Last Noel' at school (or hear it on the telly). He won't like it.

Heath is just not my personal taste. Sounds like it should be short for Heathcliff and that really would be a bridge too far!

Sonny is truly, truly awful. Sorry. It is a patronising name to call a smallish boy (probably in an old American film). I can't imagine it would be anything but hugely embarrassing to a teenager or adult to be stuck with . ... IMHO of course.
