So, I have a different thread and I say that the middle name will be Matthew. However, someone said Matthew doesn't go with Noah and, even though no one voted for Noah, DP and I are leaning towards it blush so, I was thinking of a place name (for the middle spot)... Which is your favourite?
~ Brooklyn
~ Devon
~ Phoenix
Other suggestions would be nice smile

Brooklyn- too Beckham
-Devon- Is that a name?
- Phoenix- I rather like; but a bit hard to live up to.

Matthew is much, much better than the other names on your list.

Only pick a place name that you have links to.

I have links to Devon... Yeah, I love Matthew! I was just thinking that it might be nice to have something more unusual, if we go with Noah confused

It doesn't matter that Noah Matthew doesn't flow particularly well (although they sound fine to me!).

You love Noah and you love Matthew so they're the names you should go with.

Noah Matthew for me.

Brooklyn is awful (sorry Victoria, if you're reading), Devon isn't a name, it's a place, and Phoenix isn't a name either - it's a bird that regenerates by rising from the ashes of it's own funeral pyre.

They are names though! grin

MrsLeighHalfpenny Fri 04-Dec-15 13:42:00

No they aren't. Just because some people have used them as names doesn't make them names.

Most 'names' have come from other sources... So you don't class Lily as a name?

Noah is much better than the other names IMO

Noah Matthew flows to my ears. Devon is a name very popular stateside and of course there is Devon Malcolm the cricketer. My friend tells me though that most of their troubled families have kids called Brooklyn and Phoenix and they are very stigmatised names she says they call them ASBO names - sorry

No, I was still going to use Noah, but change Matthew smile I'm not going to now though

Paddington. I live near Paddington station.

Noah Matthew/Matthew Noah.

I dont understand how one of your choices can be Matthew, and the other Phoenix. So vastly different!

Matthew of course!
