Or Ethan Jude just so I don't have to choose smile

I love both and desperately wanted Jude for one of our DS's ... DH said no because he just thought of Judas ..

I like both. But then I'm biased - both of them have been used in my tribe of small boys.

Jude! So much nicer.

Mmmm, not keen on either but Ethan marginally nicer.

Jude. It's right near the top on my names list although my DP needs convincing.

Jude. I can't stand Ethan (shudder..)

Definitely Jude. It's fabulous! Dh vetoed it for us but thankfully we agree on a name for our forthcoming dc2.
Talk your Dh round!! grin

Jude. Lovely name and so less likely to bump into another one.

Jude for me too. By a mile.

Jude for me as long as it works with your surname.

Ethan. Jude is beloved by intellectual types but doesn't scan well to real life ime

EJ ok. If only one I vote for Ethan.

Well the only Jude I know in RL is a woman. A name that means I don't know if the person is male of female when I see the name written down, really puts me off a name. So for that reason I prefer Ethan.

Jude, all the way! I have a 20 week old Jude and I adore the name and it suits him so well AND seems to be working great in RL.

Jude! wink

They're both great - lovely classic Biblical names.

I prefer Ethan, as Jude sounds a bit feminine to me (nickname for Judith).
