Really like these three names and wondered if others would too!

Jasper has been my longtime favourite!

Not a fan of any, sorry. Silas if you must. Jasper is definitely the most likely you'll hear for other children.

Love Jasper and Ezra, don't like Silas (sounds a bit slimy, and was the first name of Baron Silas Greenback, of Dangermouse fame).

Def not silas - isn't that the mad monk out of the da vinci code?!
Not keen on ezra either.
Love the name Jasper though smile

Ezra is such a great name! Wanted it for DS1 & DS2 but DH has a silly 'nothing from the bible' rule.

Jasper I really like too, although I prefer Caspar. Obviously very similar but I guess I would prefer the nn Cas to Jas.

Silas ... I'm not a fan. Sounds like silage and for some reason sounds to me like the name of someone sneaky. I have no clue why. And this is of no help to you.

Ezra, Ezra, Ezra! Amazing name. smile

Ezra is fab.
Jasper is good.
Silas makes me think of farm waste.

Jasper and Ezra are lovely. Silas is awful.

Bowlersarm Sun 16-Mar-14 12:32:38

Silas is the best.

Ezra is ok.

Don't like Jasper.

In order of preference: Ezra, Jasper, and then lagging far behind, Silas.

Ezra is ok, not my thing but a good solid name.

Silas reminds me of Silage sorry.

i love Ezra

Love all 3. Silas Marner was my favourite literature text at school. I think Ezra just sneaks ahead for me (Vampire Weekend fan) but I do adore Jasper too only I would have to avoid as is the name of friend's dog unfortunately sad

We were going to use Ezra, so it's Ezzie/Ezra all the way for me.

RufusTheReindeer Sun 16-Mar-14 22:35:44

Like Ezra

Jasper is nice as well (I know a jasper and he is quite cute)

Prefer Ezra though

Mintyy Sun 16-Mar-14 22:36:45

Ezra, but I'm afraid I don't love it.
