DH and I really can’t decide and the clock is ticking! Our surname rhymes with ‘bursar’ if that’s any help.

I'd find Saqib easier to pronounce, if that is a concern for you?

Shoaib is a beautiful name. Is it pronounced shoyeeb.?

I like them both! And good meanings too. Sorry, I realise that's no help at all ... smile

I like them both, but slightly prefer Shoaib

Forehead, it's pronounced a bit like show-ab.

Talesfromthecrypt, they are both quite easy for most people to pronounce I think so that isn't really an issue for us.

I do really like them both but think I am being swayed to Shoaib (also because I fancy him as a cricket player when he grows up!)

Shoaib is a beautiful name.
I know a very polite young man called that.
