They are both really popular. I prefer Reuben.

I'd say Reuben purely because Noah is so popular and Reuben so unusual. But they're both nice. smile

Reuben is definitely not unusual - I can think of about 5 under 5 off the top of my head.

VocationalGoat Sun 29-Nov-15 13:22:56

Neither only because I have completely OD'd on both names. Waaay too common. sad Sorry to sound mean.

VocationalGoat Sun 29-Nov-15 13:24:09

I meant common as in popular not 'common as muck' common. grin Didn't mean to sound derogatory.

Sorry, I stand corrected. blush

Reuben is very unusual where I live, I've never met a Reuben of any age, adult or child. Whereas I know at least ten Noahs. smile

Noah, such a lovely name

Rachel234561 Sun 29-Nov-15 15:27:28

Don't get why people are saying don't choose it as it's popular. Surely you choose a name because you love it. Plus popular names are popular for a reason x

Definitely Reuben. Noah to me is a bit faddy.

Noah (but biased as I have one!). Both names pretty popular where I am.

Love Noah

Reuben. Lovely name.

Reuben = sandwich.
Noah, meh...I just know so many of them. Plus the fact that my German friend is so adamant it's a girls name puts me off.

Both lovely but prefer Reuben. Neither are at all common where I live.
