I thought I'd settled on Jude, but ds is due a week tomorrow and I'm having last minute doubts confused

Dh and I both like Jude too, I'm just a bit worried he'll get called Judy at school smile

What do you think sounds best?

We'll Reuben may get called Ruby so what's the better option if the two? I like both but prefer Reuben.

Dreadful spelling. It's not me it's the autocorrect!

I prefer Jude but both are lovely.

I know, and my friend has a dog called Ruby, but we hoped he'd get Roo, as in "little Roo" smile

Just realised my OP should have said we'd settled on Reuben! blush

I prefer Jude.

Jude sounds great with your DCs name. and it's so uncommon that it's lovely.. i wanted to call DD Jude if she'd been a boy!!

Jude is much nicer I think!

I prefer Reuben but I think Jude is better with Elodie.

Reuben, I really love this, it's a wonderfully strong name with lots of character, and is my favourite by a long way.

Not at all keen on Jude though.

VainVulva Mon 17-Nov-14 01:29:12

Detest Reuben, its just a name I seem to irrationally hate. On the other hand I just adore Jude!

I love Jude. Reuben doesn't do much for me although seems to have become hugely popular in the last 18 months or so.

I love Jude. Not keen on Reuben, never have been. Not sure why..

Glastokitty Mon 17-Nov-14 06:41:37

Jude I may be biased

LizzieMint Mon 17-Nov-14 06:43:15

I know lots of Judes and they are all middle-aged women so I'd go for Reuben on that basis!

LadyHamiltonsPussy Mon 17-Nov-14 06:45:35

I know siblings called Reuben and Elodie. Jude doesn't go as nicely with Elodie imo.

LadyHamiltonsPussy Mon 17-Nov-14 06:46:04

Plus the middle aged women thing grin

Love Jude, Reuben is meh

Reuben is weak and twee. And very on trend right now.

Jude is way better.

I like both. smile I wouldn't worry which one goes best with Elodie, you should just choose the name you prefer.
