You were all amazingly helpful when critiquing my girls long list... Would love any thoughts on my boys names.

Our surname is a typical Yiddishe name ending in -man and beginning with Fr.

Jesse
Jasper
Casper
Leo
Elliot

There is a definite front runner which I won't say.

We already have a Jonah.

Thank you!

Jesse. Don't like. No reason just not to my taste.
Jasper Carrott. It's awful
Casper is gorgeous.
Leo. Okay
Elliot is gorgeous.

I like Leo and Casper, then Elliot.

Love Casper and Elliot!

Jonah and jasper sounds odd to me, as does Jonah and Jesse... But how often would you say them together?!

Caspar or Elliot!
Caspar and Jonah are both on my list for a future son.

Jesse is my favourite from the list.

Sorry but really don't like Jasper or Casper - they sound like pet dog or cat names to me.

Jesse - really like.
Jasper - cat name to me (new one years ago)
Casper - nice
Leo - meh
Elliot - love, love DS2 is Elliott

I've always liked Jesse but there was a boy in my class at primary school who always got tormented for it for being a "girl's name.) I like Leo and Elliot from your list too smile

Jesse is my favourite, followed by Leo and Jasper. Not keen on Elliot

Jesse or Casper. Casper is on my list. Hate jasper but don't know why! DH suggested it earlier for our little one and I took instant dislike!

Jesse is a good name that will be good no matter what age. Casper to me still reminds me of the ghost.

CakeRattleandRoll Thu 31-Dec-15 07:01:45

Casper is my favourite. I like Elliot too, but would he get nn Ellie - like most little girls seem to be?!

I like all except Casper. It sounds a bit trendy and there is of course the ghost association. Casper Friedman just doesn't roll of the tongue. I like all of the rest, but my favorite is Leo.

I like Leo.
