Middle name would be Parker.
I love hebrew names but husband prefers different names. What do you prefer? X

Love love love Jude! Love Eli too. I wanted Elijah for ds1 but got lots of negative comments from family, so he ended up Ellis. Unfortunately Jude doesn't go with our one syllable surname.

Jude. Is it really that popular? I only know one.

Eli is okay but I prefer it as a nn for Elijah

I have a Jude and we don't know any others.

Lovely names smile

Usually I see the name threads on actor conversations and have a snigger to myself as they are a bit odd but they are both lovely names.

Only thing with your spelling of Eli is that you'll be constantly correcting people.

Active conversations not actor grin

I love both but both are popular

I like Eli, but I would worry about him being called Ellie. Same with Jude / Judy. Just too girlie!

messtins Thu 08-Nov-12 14:08:13

Jude. I don't know any.

SilentMammoth Thu 08-Nov-12 21:08:38

Both lovely!

Eli but nn for Elijah

Like both, prefer Jude. FWIW don't know any children of either name (including sneaky browsing of pre-school register!) so wouldn't call either of them offputtingly popular around here. (city in north of England).

Thank you all! I just can't decide. The last thing I want is something popular and have to say I don't know of any Jude's and Eli's in my area!? Hopefully if we went with Jude, he would own his name and people wouldn't just think of Jude Law.

I prefer Eli but only because I know 2 Jude's under 1 year old.
