I'm due in a few days and stuck on a name for our little boy. Me and OH don't really agree but am hoping to sway him towards one of my choices then let him choose the middle name!

On my shortlist is Dylan, Jacob, Caleb, Archie, Logan, Reuben and Finlay

Opinions please!

Kids names are such personal choices I'm not sure anyone's opinion matters.

All the names you have are in the top100 so no chance of feeling like the odd one out at school. Kids are much more accepting of names than adults.

At least you haven't got Box, Scooter or Romeo on the list - that's a good thing in my view!

They're all good names. My favourites of your list are Jacob and Dylan.

I like Dylan and Caleb the best. Don't like Logan or Archie at all, sorry.

I like Jacob, Caleb, Reuben and Finlay most. In fact all 4 were on my list, Caleb has a lovely meaning. Jacob pretty popular at minute. Depends on spelling of Finlay, ey more popular but I prefer ay.

Dylan, Jacob, Reuben are reliable classics, I think I'd go for one of them (nicknames: Roo is very cute, Dyl is great and more unusual and I'm not keen on Jake, so that would sway me against Jacob).

Archie - I can't get my head round nicknames-as-names, sorry. Caleb and Finlay should be classics, but I get the feeling they're at the end of a bit of a wave of popularity and not sure I'd use them (though I love Finn). Logan, not heard before, not keen.

Don't like Reuben or Logan at all but the rest are great. Jacob and Caleb are my favourites and both have lovely nn if you want to use the - Jake/Jack/Jay or Cal. Almost makes me want to have another one!

LOVE Logan - this was on our shortlist.

Don't like the others.
