So 5 days till due date and hubby decides he didn't like the name Oscar James anymore if this one is a boy. My next fab name is Matthew but I'm worried Matthew James sounds too biblical ? What do u think ?

That's my DB's name 🙂 I think it's lovely.

Matthew James is gorgeous! Not too biblical smile I love Noah Matthew, for a boy, so I would say that! grin

I prefer Matthew (over Oscar)... blush it's so handsome, go for it!

It's a lovely combination, really nice.

Oscar is v trendy and will date, whereas Matthew James is totally classic. I love it

Are you happy with him being called MJ?

Cos could happen.

Nice name though

It is a very common combination. The world and his wife will announce that it is the same name as their dad / brother / son.

It is also the most fabulous boys name combination in the world!

It's my sons exact name,and I love it!

Lovely name(s). Not too biblical at all - I mean, obviously both are in the bible, but have been used over centuries and transcended into the secular too.
Really good choice, IMO. smile

Lovely name, and the name of one of my very best lifelong friends. Go with it!

Absolutelyfabulously Thu 19-May-16 05:03:43

Lovely, I much prefer to Oscar James.

Ankleswingers Thu 19-May-16 05:09:09

Very nice name. IMO one you can't go wrong with.

I think it's a lovely name, classic. I called my eldest DS that over 20 years ago and it still sounds lovely smile

It could be seen as biblical, but then a lot of our traditional names did come from the Bible, so I don't see it as a problem.

Lovely, much better than Oscar James

Thurlow Thu 19-May-16 09:29:49

Great name, very classic.

Pipilangstrumpf Thu 19-May-16 10:01:48

Matthew is quite nice, but I really don't like Matt.

EmmaWoodlouse Thu 19-May-16 16:07:59

I think it's lovely and although Matthew is a popular name, it's not so popular right now that he'd be one of 3 in the class.

Oscar James just makes me think of this actor: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_James

I love Matthew. but I'm biased

DustOffYourHighestHopes Thu 19-May-16 16:13:33

Classic but a bit boring

Allalonenow Thu 19-May-16 16:13:39

It's a great name, will not date and will work well when he is an adult, and so much nicer than Oscar.

Sophronia Fri 20-May-16 00:14:42

Lovely, and Matthew is nicer than Oscar.

My son's name , he is 35.
When he was born my mother's friend wrote a poem. One of the lines was "you thought of saints and granddad and called him Matthew James"

Classic but so boring

Add zanzibar or something as a second middle name
