Wow. Going to rock the boat here and say Jacob. Love it and would use it if ever we had DS4! (Never will)

I like them in the order you've listed, Jacob best, then James, then Joel.

In order: Joel, James, Jacob

But I think they're all lovely.

My son is Jacob middle name is James , only recently found out in another language they are actually the same name apparently blush

James. Classic and as someone else said, timeless.

Jacob makes me think immediately of religious connotations and Joel makes me think of 'Piano Man'!

Janes every time. <not biased>

NarkyNamechanger Sun 19-May-13 12:26:55

Janes???? James

James. As already mentioned, Jacob is the Latin version of James so you get two for the price of one smile Jacob v popular atm so it will date, whereas James won't.

Don't like Joel v much.

Joel or James. Don't like Jacob and it's been done to death round here - seems like every other baby boy is Jacob/Jake.
