2 due soon, we've narrowed it down to two names, Aidan and Lucas. We like both equally and can't decide between the two. DS1 is Archie. What would you go for?

Also can't decide if I prefer the spelling Aidan or Aiden!

Lucas gets my vote.

Aidan with a an A definitely

Aidan is a nice normal name in Ireland but I think the Americans have over used it. I know more Lucases.

I prefer Marcus. Sorry!

Lucas definitely.

Aidan with an a. Goes great with Archie and Lucus sounds like mucus!

Def Aidan by a long shot!
There are Lucases everywhere!

Well you lot are no help! grin

Neither are hugely popular names where I live, I don't know any kids with either of those names. That said DS1 is only in nursery so once he makes the move up to primary I'll probably stand corrected.

Lucas, I think it sounds better with Archie.

Aidan. Lucas is nice but is having. A popularity peak right now.

Aidan. There are so many Lucas's around at the moment - it is a nice name though.
You mightn't know any now but by the time your lad goes to primary school or secondary there will be loads of them!

Another vote for Aidan! Such a great name and sounds lovely with sibling

Archie and Aidan

I love Aidan (and Hayden)!

Though think Lucas goes better with Archie.

I have my own Aidan so obviously love it and would definitely spell it with an a. However, I'd go for Lucas with Archie, as I'd prefer them to have different initials.

Love them both so can't help unfortunately! Maybe Aidan by a slim margin.

Another Aidan vote here, Archie and Aidan are lovely together.

I secretly prefer the spelling Aiden though.
