Finding it really hard to pick a boys name, I've got a little boy called Louie and thinking of Jayden for this one could be shortend to J or middle name will be Joseph as that's my dads name so Jayden Joseph could also be JJ. Honest opinions please smile

I really don't like Jayden and really like Joseph. Not sure about JJ tbh. You could have james with 'jay' as a nn.

Might just be me though and once they're named no one will say anything.

Monkeyandanimal Sat 31-May-14 21:56:34

no. awful name. sorry. How about Joseph for first name?

Biscuitsneeded Sat 31-May-14 21:57:31

Hate Jayden, really like Joseph. If you like JJ as a nickname, how about Joseph James?

I like Jayden. I'm not keen on Joseph but it's ok as a middle name.

Jayden is not a popular name on MN, you will get lots of people telling you they don't like it.
I can't see the problem with it tbh, although personally I think Jay is nicer, but that's my preference and it doesn't matter what I think.
If you like the name go for it, don't let anyone put you off.

Joseph is a great name. Why not just use Joseph?

Jayden is absolutely awful

Yama Sat 31-May-14 22:03:16

Love Joseph. Love James with nickname Jay.

Louie is a great name. So is Joseph smile

Jayden is awful, sorry. I had several signs when pregnant with DD that I should call my baby Jayden. hmm I can understand why you like it, but really, there are many better names out there.

Only1scoop Sat 31-May-14 22:08:07

Jayden I don't like

Joseph I do

usualsuspectt Sat 31-May-14 22:08:09

If you like it use it, No one on MN will like it. snobs

I like Jayden and Aidan but not Hayden or Kaiden for some reason! But you might, if you're not totally set on JJ I think kaiden/aidan go best with Joseph.

Hello Eat Shit Derek. I thought of you earlier whilst watching Step Brothers!

Not a huge fan of Jayden TBH. I prefer Jay.

Spero Sat 31-May-14 22:11:02

The 'problem' with Jayden is that it will immediately mark him out as 'not middle class'.

You may not see this as a problem at all, in which case go for it.

But I do think names are important so I would try to give any child a pretty neutral sounding name that wouldn't allow others immediately to put him in a particular box.

I think 'joseph' ticks all the boxes - its classic, its classless, you can shorten it to a variety of other nicknames if 'joseph' all the time is too heavy or formal.

mummy1973 Sat 31-May-14 22:14:27

Joseph yes. Jayden no. IMHO.

eatmydust Sat 31-May-14 22:15:06

I don't like Jayden at all. It will date horribly. Joseph is lovely and goes much better with Louie.

If you want JJ - how about James/ Jude/ Josh/ Jack/Jake/Jacob.....

usualsuspectt Sat 31-May-14 22:16:16

Why would OP want to appear MC?

Is MC better?

Clint88 Sat 31-May-14 22:16:32

Plenty of successful people in the US with 'not middle class' names - Condoleezza anyone? It's about time we caught up.

Iswallowedawatermelon Sat 31-May-14 22:16:40

I prefer Aidan Joseph or Joseph Aidan.

Or Jay (another middle name)

I really don't like the alliteration of Jayden Joseph and Jayden is one of those names people love or hate- so Id prefer to avoid the angst smile

I know a Jamie John who is known as JJ.

AryaOfHouseSnark Sat 31-May-14 22:17:25

It is if you want to be a a high court judge usually. wink
