Help help help

We are expecting a boy in 2 weeks and can't decide which of these names we like best. We already have a daughter (Rebecca).

So people of the Internet, help us choose!

Gabriel because Gabe is great as a nn.

YoMamma Thu 10-Oct-13 15:47:32

Please use Gabriel. I was desperate to have a Gabriel but only have girls and DH vetoed anyway sad

My second fave is Casper. Don't like Nathan much.

Gabriel (biased owner of a Gabriel)

My friend's gorgeous, sweet DS is Caspar. My DS3 has middle name Gabriel (OH wanted it first name, but couldn't face shouting it in supermarket) and my eldest is Nathaniel.

Nathaniel. Not Nathan.

Arrrgh, don't know why I've suddenly spent today getting so stressed over it! Thanks for your replies, i was leaning toward Gabriel/ gabe before I posted and it seems the most popular here too.

Will now start stressing over middle names....

Love Gabriel too. Caspar is OK. I don't like Nathan very much, only Nate.

Gabriel! My first son is called Gabriel too or 'Gabe'. I get so many compliments on it, it's a beautiful name and still quite unusual. My second son is Sebastian, I think they match well x

Gabriel or Nathaniel (Nate)

Gabriel or Nathan. Caspar is a wet name, the other two are lovely.

Gabriel! Mine is 2.6 and I love his name.

Littlecherublegs Sat 12-Oct-13 22:35:14

Nathan is by far the best! Love Nathaniel and Nate too.
Gabriel is nice though don't like Gabe .
Caspar I don't like.

Caspar. Went to college with a guy of this name, always thought it was very cool.

My Caspar was due last Christmas day - it was a toss up between Gabriel which is a truly beautiful name or Caspar. There were an awful lot of Gabriel's around so we went for Caspar.

He mostly gets called Cass which we like as its kind of nice and ambiguous and a bit cool really smile He is most definately a Caspar.

Both names are lovely though ( Don't like Nathan at all though sorry!)

oh definitely Gabriel!

I want to have a third just so we can use Gabriel. I love the name so much. I prefer Nathaniel to Nathan but it is a little bit boring. Caspar makes me think of the ghost.

Prefer Nathaniel to Nathan.
Gabriel is a gorgeous name, as is Casper.
