Can't decide, which do you prefer?

They are SO popular. Are there no others you like?

Both great names. Jack nudges it for me.

Jack. Probably marginally less common than Noah amongst my Dc's peers and their siblings.

I like both but Jack is more timeless. Noah seems to have become suddenly popular so I assume it will wane again in the next few years. Yes they're both popular but that may not bother you! DD has a top 20 name and we know of only one other child around her age with the same name. DS has a less commonly used (although not unusual) name, top 500 probably - we love both names, they suit our children perfectly!

Jack, or even better Jonathan or John with nn Jack.

Noah is a very 'now' name and imo will date badly. There are hundreds of them around here.

Lots of Jacks too of course but it's a more classic name.

MamaLazarou Sun 27-Sep-15 12:20:14

Both so boring!

What about Jackson?

They're both very very popular at the moment when this child is at school he'll probably have 2 friends with his name. Personally I prefer Noah.

Millions of them. V popular. If that's not an issue, prefer Jack.
Actually prefer James grin

Its irrelevant his popular itbis or not.

Name your child the name you like.

DramaAlpaca Sun 27-Sep-15 19:34:00


Can't stand Noah.

Jack for me too.

MrsJoyless Sun 27-Sep-15 21:13:02

Am I allowed a teeny giggle at the thought that Jack is more timeless than Noah?

BikeRunSki Sun 27-Sep-15 21:16:41

Well I know a Jack who is 93, one who is 40, one who is 39 and 2 who are 6. I know 5 boys named Noah and they are all 2 or 3.

mrstweefromtweesville Sun 27-Sep-15 21:19:01

Noah is a girl's name. It is a girl's name. Which makes me wonder if the story of the ark is more radical that we thought.

BikeRunSki Sun 27-Sep-15 21:23:19

I thought Noa was a girl's name, and Noah was a boy's name?

Bakeoffcake Sun 27-Sep-15 21:24:28

I love Jack BUT you do realise that it it very, very common?

Did is 21, she knows 6 Jacks from school and met another 4 at uni. We have to have nicknames for them all to distinguish them. We have House-Jack,
Jack-Jack, Esther's-Jack, Cousin-Jack etc etc.

So based on that I'd go for
