Down to final three which do you prefer?

James is lovely but I personally don't like Jamie or Jim.

James, then Jacob. Not Joel

Yes but when I think Jacob I immediately think biblical, then I think Crackers!
When I think Joel I think JK and!

Joel is gorgeous.

> Jacob is too biblical

James is Biblical too, there are a few Jameses in the Bible including a disciple.

James if you don't mind that it's going to be the next Harry!

James buy a million miles.

Jacob is too biblical and a bit boring, Joel reminds me of cheesy DJ's JK and Joel.

Jacob, Joel, James. Joel to reduce chance of forever having surname appended at school.

Joel as it is a bit different.

Jacob as I like the nn Jake.

Not James.....too dull and safe.

James, then Jacob. Joel waaay down after those two.

Love Jacob - but biased as I have one. Not as popular as I thought it might be here (NE England), only know 2 others and 1 was due to DH's work colleague only really thinking of the name when we used it and asking if we minded if she also called her DS it.

James is lovely but we were always put off by the fact that we knew people of our generation called James - I guess that's because it's a classic but we wanted a name that wasn't the same as anyone we knew.

All good- just pick the one which fits your surname best.

Max. Too many Harry's now.

Gorgeous name for baby through to man.

Jacob is nice but I always want to shorten it to Jake, it feels odd saying Jacob.

James definitely, love it.

Quite like Jacob.

Don't like Joel at all.
