36 weeks pregnant and really struggling to commit to a boys name. We both love Rory and Jackson but don't know which way to go.. both names go well with our surname. Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Completely different types of name.
I prefer Rory.

Jackson, but I prefer just Jack.

Jackson is horribly faddy, IMO.

Not at all keen on Jackson, he would certainly get Jack as a nn and there are many many Jacks already,

Rory. Please. Jackson is terrible (sorry)

Rory. There are lots of little Jacksons about just now, and even some 'Jaxons' confused

Jackson. I don't like Rory, it's a bit wet IMO.

I'm a big fan of Jackson here and it is on our shortlist too! x

Jackson is a surname. 'Modern' is not always a good thing.

Rory is better.

Jackson is not great.

I know a couple of each all little shits. So personally couldn't touch either. Sorry.

Jackson is v popular.
Rory is better but for some reason I find it quite hard to say.

Jackson is a surname and a very clear surname at that. Jack's son.
So that would be a no from me.
