Alex definitely.

Alex. No contest.

What do you call a man with a 3 inch willy?? ...Justin! No, sorry. Alex is much better xx

Ambivalent about Alex, dislike Justin.

Agree with sasparillo. I can't get past the just in joke. Puerile I know (have I spelt that right?)
I love the name Alex though.

I know a lovely Justin, but only one. Then Timberlake came along and trashed it for me.

I rather love the name Alex.

sasparillo, Does Justin mean something about 3 inch willy? Please explain the joke

cuggles Wed 30-Jan-13 08:16:01

Alex...just like my gorgeous boy!!

cuggles Wed 30-Jan-13 08:16:46

A 3 inch willy during sex would be just in!!!

Alex but I'd call him Alexander so he has a choice of diminutives when he's older (Alex, Alexi, Sandy, Sacha, Xander).

bluee Wed 30-Jan-13 08:19:34

Thanks cuggles, now it now the joke. Is the 3 inch willy joke very common to Americans?
Thumbwitch, why do you say Timberlake came along and trashed it? What did he do to the name Justin?

alexpolismum Wed 30-Jan-13 08:19:50

Alex, obviously grin

What did J Timberlake do? WEll maybe you are a fan, but for the rest of us....

Shodan Wed 30-Jan-13 08:24:50


Alexes are gorgeous and handsome and clever and funny and lovely. Not that I'm biased, or anything grin

I've never liked Justin and unfortunately the only one I've ever known was my friend's husband until he had an affair so now the name is tainted as well.

GirlOutNumbered Wed 30-Jan-13 08:28:50

Alex! Do not like Justin at all.

Thumbwitch Wed 30-Jan-13 08:29:15

I don't like J Timberlake and so the name is tainted for me now. Don't you have those feelings about names of people?

Tobagostreet Wed 30-Jan-13 08:35:37

Justin reminds me of that guy from cbeebies, so it's Alex for me (disclaimer - I'm bias as I have an Alexander)

(Are you a Wizards of Waverley Place fan? Alex (girl) and Justin (boy) are the siblings in that - watched far too many episodes for my liking!! grin)

alexpolismum Wed 30-Jan-13 08:36:04

I like the Welsh version of Justin, which is Iestyn (Yes-tin)

But other than that, I agree with Shodan! grin

cuggles Wed 30-Jan-13 10:00:56

Shodan...absolutely! I have the evidence right here on my lap!

ladymia Wed 30-Jan-13 11:29:09

Alex, really don't like the name Justin

blindworm Wed 30-Jan-13 11:38:53

If you call him Justin, everyone will always think Bieber straight away. Alex is much nicer.

scaevola Wed 30-Jan-13 11:46:38

I'd choose Alex.

Neither Timberlake nor Bieber spring to mind (must be my age), but a "just in" little willy definitely does.
