I'm not a massive fan of Joshua but it isn't by any means a bad name.

It's just okay.

I prefer it as a middle name as I don't like the shortening Josh.

I wouldn't choose it. But do you like it?

Bowlersarm Sun 30-Nov-14 15:10:57

I like it.

Louisejames31 Sun 30-Nov-14 21:35:15

I like it I don't know if it's abit dated now though. My partner and son have picked the name. It's the only one I like out of his suggestions

There were 4 Joshuas in my nephews nursery class of 20 or so.

It's not dreadful but it is dull and over used.

Louisejames31 Sun 30-Nov-14 21:44:55

Do you have any suggestions..

I have a nephew Joshua so am very biased! Also in our family are Joseph Samuel Jack Matthew Peter Benjamin. Not sure how Jack snuck in there! And we're not overly religious.

To me it's a name that was popular about 10-15 years ago. For that reason I'm not mad on it, sorry.
What kind of names do you like?

Love the name Joshua. I wanted it for my little boy but me and OH has a deal. I name if its a girl he names if its a boy. I did get Joshua as a middle name.

I like it.

If it helps. my PILS were looking at Joshua for their 4th but their older children objected so they went for Joseph. I like the name Joseph (doubt that BIL is reading but if so he has a nice name!).

I like the names Joseph, Oliver and leo but my partner doesn't, names he likes are joshua, riley and Roman.

Fab name! No need to say anymore

TsukuruTazaki Mon 01-Dec-14 23:07:28

I really like it. Much better than Riley and roman.

I also love Joseph and Oliver from your choices.

Joseph, Oliver and Joshua all lovely. Dont like Riley and not too keen on Roman ( unless you have Russian links)

Louisejames31 Tue 02-Dec-14 20:36:20

Thanks them 3 are my fav from the list too

Joshua is nice, it's just been really popular for the past 20 years so it's a bit boring now...

Of the names you've mentioned liking I prefer Joseph and Oliver. Joshua and Riley are both nice too, but I prefer the others.

Roman is definitely the worst of the bunch, but it's not completely awful.
