Hi ladies,

I've posted on her before and thanks to you lovely ladies, we've decided on a girls name. We've always really struggled to come up with boys names and these are now our top 2.

What sounds better:

Joel Hughes (nn Joey)
Rory Hughes

Thanks in advance for your help smile

I love Rory but DH has vetoed it so that gets my vote.

Thank you smile

For once I can't chose, both are equally lovely. Either.

Rory, but Joel also lovely

Joel, I don't like Rory at all, sorry

Quite a high percentage for Rory! Thanks ladies!! I love the name Joey but Joseph doesn't work with our last name. That was my reasoning for thinking maybe Joel x

Rory again! wink

Why not just Joey? I love it smile

My ds is Joel Hugh so obviously biased but I love his name.

Maybe see which you like best once he's here ?

Joel doesn't need a nickname. Joel is ace, Joey is horrible.

Joel, purely because I seem to find Rory difficult to say: it comes out as "Vawvy"

MuttonCadet Thu 03-Dec-15 23:13:49

Both are lovely, I think on balance Rory, but it's marginal.

Rory or Joe rather than Joel for me.

Sophronia Thu 03-Dec-15 23:25:55

Joel. Not keen on Rory.

Pigeonpost Thu 03-Dec-15 23:29:54

Rory. Bit biased though... It's a good strong name I think. Joel less so.

Devora Thu 03-Dec-15 23:33:16

All these Rory-lovers are quite mad. Joel is clearly superior (and is what I would have called a son).

Allalonenow Thu 03-Dec-15 23:33:39

Although Joel is great too, I really dislike Joey, so Rory gets my vote.

There is no contest for me. It would have to be Rory
