My sister is expecting a baby boy, what is the general opinion on her short list, are there any horrible connotations we haven,t thought of? She doesn't want anything too commonly used but not too weird either, any other suggestions in the sAme vein welcome!


Thanks smile

Vincent reminds me of the very blue Don McLean song.

Other than that, i like the rest of them a lot. I know an 8yo Patrick, 3 Issacs, 3yo and two 7yos and my DP is Matthew (Matty).

Not that keen on Vincent - more becasue of the shortened version Vince. Maybe Victor (Vic) instead?

The others are nice. I would maybe add Elliot, Miles, Peter and David?

and maybe Austin or Philip?

Mark or Martin maybe?

I like them all, though Isaac might be best used in a family with a Jewish backgound, I do think it's a lovely name.

I love them all.
Especially Vincent!

I love Vincent, esp with NN Vinnie.

Patrick is great, love it.

Isaac also great but more popular (if that matters to her). I don't see it as exclusively a Jewish name at all, you'd have to write off every name in the Old Testament if you did that.

Vincent isn't great but Vince is very cool.

Matthew, meh, it's a bit 80s/90s to me just because I grew up with a lot of Matthews, but it's a classic I suppose.

I'm not keen on Vincent,I like the rest. I think Isaac is rather popular at the moment though if that's something she's bothered by...?

I like Vincent a lot, but really dislike Vince so not sure how usable it is if you feel the same.

Love Vincent smile such a cool but classic name

Isaac is the only one I sort of like. But who cares what I think!! smile

Not a big fan of Vincent, and loathe Vinnie! The others are all good. Really like Isaac but it's a bit too popular at the moment. Patrick is nice.

I like Isaac and Matthew.

I really like all of them.
