Baby due in 4 weeks and we don't know the gender. We have decided on our girls name, which is Heidi, and have narrowed our boys name to Xander or Rudy.
Which do you prefer?

Xander (by quite a long way)

Do you like The Specials? Rudy automatically makes me sing their song in my head. Think Edith Bowman called her baby boy Rudy. It is a nice name and I prefer it to Xander I think.

I prefer Rudy

Rudy!

I prefer Xander, only because... Rudy will probably be Rude, not as like an official NN, but every now and then, you may shorten it to Rude and I just prefer Xand smile

Thanks. It's nice to get some different opinions. I change my mind between them daily. Maybe we should wait and see what he looks like and if it's a girl we won't need to pick.

Xander

Rudy reminds me of the word "rude".

Rudy. Although I would be tempted to use Rudyard as long name and Rudy as nickname

Rudy by miles, I think Xander is a bit try-hard (sorry!).

All the Rudys I know are nn Roo rather than Rude which I think is really sweet (including one in his late 20s).

Xander, I think.
Why does my phone autocorrect Rudy to Tudy? Tudy isn't even a word!

Xander.
I just can't hear Rudy without thinking rude.

Rudy for me.

Xander I just can't feel the love for.
