Shortlist for boys names - thoughts?

We have finally got a relatively short shortlist, but OH most likes the two I like least, and vice-versa. Very frustrating. What are your thoughts, dear MN users? Please ignore the popularity factor - we're aware of each name's popularity and it's not a HUGE issue for either of us.

I like Noah, Owen is OK, not keen on Aaron or Leo.

Love Aaron, but pronounced A-ron rather that Air-on.
Noah is nice, but tedious now
I quite like Owen. It's quite different now.
Not thrilled about Leo, sorry.

I like them all except Noah.

Leo is my favourite, followed by Aaron.

I like them all, nice and simple, but Aaron would be my favourite too

Leo is my favourite

1 Owen (or Owain), 2 Leo (or Leon) for me.

pennyunwise Thu 18-Aug-16 17:20:32

Yes, it would be A-ron not Air-ron (sorry, purists). It's actually our least favourite of the four anyway. Leo and Noah are top right now, with Owen REAALLY close behind.

It's just so hard to decide. It's such a big commitment!!

In order of preference:

Love the first two, others are ok.

Dontrocktheboat Thu 18-Aug-16 22:04:26

Aaron only if pronounced Air-on.

Then Leo. Not keen on Noah or Owen.

ineedamoreadultieradult Thu 18-Aug-16 22:07:19

Order of preference;
Aaron (pronounced Arun definitely not Air-ron)

Loyly Thu 18-Aug-16 22:12:35

Order of preference:

Leo and Noah are good. I really dislike Aaron and Owen, sorry.

Floralnomad Thu 18-Aug-16 22:14:44

I like Noah and dislike Leo , the other 2 are ok .

thebakerwithboobs Thu 18-Aug-16 22:17:49

I have never met an Aaron who actually pronounces it Airon. Do they really exist?

bleedingnora Thu 18-Aug-16 22:20:11

Only one I like is Leo

So many Noah's about and I never liked it before tbh.

Aaron seems very dated in an 80s way

Owen makes me think of owain on the Gavin and stacey programme

DramaAlpaca Thu 18-Aug-16 22:27:41

I like Leo and Owen.

Aaron is OK.

Least favourite, by a long way, is Noah.

Leo Aaron or Owen (all the Noah's I know are wet and boring)

Daytona79 Thu 18-Aug-16 22:34:31

I like Owen I hate Noah

Aaron and Leo are both ok

Katebakes88 Thu 18-Aug-16 22:36:35

I have a wonderful Noah 😄 Also like Owen and Leo. Not so keen on Aaron.

pennyunwise Thu 18-Aug-16 22:39:01

Aaron is out, thanks guys!

And now we're down to three! Dun dun dunnnn

0pti0na1 Thu 18-Aug-16 22:41:30

I like Leo best.

Out out the remaining ones definitely Noah, other two are plain in comparison.
