Sorry, I really dislike Vincent

Vincent. It's more masculine which I like in a male name.

It's definitely more memorable.

I know a Vincent who is both handsome and intelligent.

Vincent is more unique and therefore more memorable but I'm not keen on it and I really dislike the inevitable Vince.

I love Vincent - would consider using it as a middle name. What about nn Vinnie?
Alex is nice too but Vincent is more masculine, interesting, creative...

Stronger name. Think Vincent is a bit weak.

Vincent reminds me of the lion person who lived in the sewers in the beauty and the beast programme. Its one of those names I like but wouldn't give to a child.

I like Alex a lot.

Not Vincent. Couldn't stand people shortening it to Vince. Plus only boy I ever knew called Vincent was a weedy little kid who I don't think ever brushed his teeth!

Both top names. Love them both, but personally prefer Vincent.

Vincent - but not for good reasons for me, memorable because it's a bit yuck.

Vincent is fab. There are millions of Alex's.

Vincent is great and underused.

Alex - I always think of it as a girls name initially even though I know it can be for boys too. No so keen on it for that reason. Plus used much more often.

I also like Victor. smile
