Somebody on here once said Noah sounds like someone farting down a drainpipe, and I really can't put it better than that.

Jacob. Noah is so trendy.

I prefer Noah, where I live (NW England) Jacob is very, very popular.

Jacob. I love the J names but DH vetoed all of them.

MyShoofly Wed 22-May-13 05:06:38

oth solid names but I like Noah's not really trendy nor is it unusual where I am from.

Jacob smile

Neither. Both way too popular at the moment.

But, if you must, then Jacob as it is more classic. Noah very trendy at the moment.

Noah. Jacob (Jake) is common.

Both lovely!

DeputyDeputyChiefOfStaff Wed 22-May-13 07:51:34

Both lovely but popular, if that bothers you smile

Both lovely names, I think I've met more Noahs than Jacobs here.

What about Jonah? smile

Jacob. Noah is my most hated boys name of all time.

sweetkitty Wed 22-May-13 08:23:26

Jacob as I have one.

I have also only ever met one other little boy called Jacob and he was 9.

Just for not being part of the Twilight Bella-Edward-Jacob legacy, at present I'd plump for Noah.

CheeseStrawWars Wed 22-May-13 11:46:22

I seem to spend half my life saying "No" to my kids, so I would plump for Jacob just to give my tongue some different sounds to play with.
