Hi this is my first baby and I've been unsure on names since day 1!!

These two have stuck with me for a while all though I do keep going on and off both! I don't have a middle name for Mason yet, as I can't think of any, so ideas are welcome!

But I do like it and Jayden Lee isn't a double barrelled name or anything he'll just be called Jayden, but I just like the sound of lee with it smile

What do you think, I wasn't too sure if these were 'chavvy' or 'common' names !

Both will be considered "chavvy" or "common" by some people.

I prefer Jayden. I don't like Mason at all at all. I would have a different middle name I think though, as Lee as a middle name always makes me think of rockstar guitarists with too much hair and eyeliner!

Which sounds better depends on his surname.

It's worth bearing in mind that they are names that might not stand the test of time very well.

I don't like either sorry. They will also date badly and become the Colin / Keith / Lesley of the future.

OTOH I do like Jay, just that.

SpecialAgentFreyPie Tue 25-Mar-14 08:38:35

I like Jayden, Jay is a lovely nickname.

princessalbert Tue 25-Mar-14 08:38:51

I don't like either of them.

Jay/Jai is okay.

CookieLady Tue 25-Mar-14 08:40:40

Not Jayden.

Vatta Tue 25-Mar-14 08:40:58

Sorry, but honestly Jayden is a very chavvy (I hate that word but don't know how else to put it!) name.

Mason is much better of the two.

Mason is better than Jayden. It's sad but a boy called Jayden Lee will get judged harshly by the katie Hopkins of the world.

James is a lovely name.

mrssmith79 Tue 25-Mar-14 08:44:22

Mason is OK, Jayden Lee looks like it should be followed by Clampet ( sorry). What about Hayden or Aidan?

BeaWheesht Tue 25-Mar-14 08:57:34

I think they're lovely, not chavvy at all. In fact I suspect he will grow up to be a high court judge just because of his name.

I like Mason (but then I generally like surname names) as it sounds cute for a little boy, but also strong. Jayden? I know two people with this name, both spelt Jaiden. I like the nickname JJ/JayJay but am not a fan of the name as a whole, it's fairly popular where I live at least, so I can see a lot of people do like it.

I like Jay!

I wouldn't touch either of those names with a barge pole, sorry but if you like them that's all that matters.

justasmallone Tue 25-Mar-14 09:16:42

If you like that use them but sorry i think they will scream chav to most people

Tea1Sugar Tue 25-Mar-14 09:47:30

Neither. Jason at a push.

wigglesrock Tue 25-Mar-14 10:10:37

I always think of Jayden as a girls name.

I know a couple of Jays not shortened from anything.

Mason leaves me a bit cold. I quite like Jason - you don't hear it so much any more.

Yawn if YOU like them use them. MN opinion doesnt matter, You are only getting a niche opinion.

I like both names FWIW but prefer Jayden to Mason
