Which do you like?

I suppose Leon? Not that keen on either.

I think both are sweet. I think I prefer Ronnie.

I prefer Leon (also like Leo).

Ronnie reminds me of Ronald MacDonald or the Two Ronnies.

Another vote for Leon.

Out of the two, Ronnie.

Leon. Too many ie ending/shortened names about.

LOVE Leon!

Ronnie not so much.

Leon is OK.

Absolutely hate Ronnie - sorry. To me it's a diminutive of Ronald, which is an old man name & I don't like old man/old lady names at all.

That's only my opinion though. Feel free to disregard!

Leon. Ronnie is too nicknamey.

Leon as it is a full name, I only like Ronnie when short for something (Ronald I guess).

I have a secret, totally unreasonable crush on Ronnie Wood (I know, I know). Not sure I'd name a baby Ronnie though.

I love Ronnie - we seriously considered it for our second - but then she turned out to be a DD!

Perchance2dream Mon 17-Mar-14 23:01:47

Leon - lovely

I don't love Leon but it's okay.

Ronnie is dreadful. No.

Leon is okay I suppose. I wouldn't choose it but its better than Ronald!

Leo is nicer and if you like grandad names, he could be Leonard formally.

I know 2 Ronnies - but I don't really like cutesy, shortened names.

Much prefer Leon.

BirthdayMuppet Tue 18-Mar-14 10:59:18

Neither - Leo is far better than Leon and Ronnie is awful.

I love both. Both are on our boys list! We're also considering Leonard so we have the option of both Leon and Lennie as NN.
