Quick Poll - Jake or Rhys!

(35 Posts)

Thanks for taking the time to read this. As a quick poll what would you choose - Jake or Rhys?

We both like Jake but worry is is popular especially as Jacob can be shortened to it. Rhys on the other hand is not so popular but I worry about issues with selling.

Kind regards,

Joebloggs

Rhys, definitely.

I don't think the spelling is that much of an issue, as it's quite a "known" name.

Rhys but I've only ever known it spelt Reece

Jake - it won't win though, as people think of it as a 'chav' name on here hmm

Another vote for Rhys! I really like it.

Not a fan of Rhys, I''m afraid. So Jake for me.

Thanks for your responses I make that 9-3 to Rhys. Although as one response has said they have only ever seen it spelt Reece that more or less confirms my fears confused

If it helps, I've never seen it spelt Reece.

Rhys, never Reece.

Rhys. But I'm Welsh and so may be a little biased

When I was at school, there was a Rhys in my year. In year 7, I was handing out the books. There was Rhys on it. I had no idea what the name said grin so I left it on the side. Rhys looks at me and goes "do you not know my name" and I was like "yeah, Reece..." (As that's how I thought it was spelt) and he goes "so why didn't you give me my book!?" I was a little hmm and then realised Rhys, was said as Reece. Maybe most people aren't as stupid as me grin

Jake. I hate the name Rhys however it's spelt. I've known three Rhyses and they've all been pretty unpleasant so it carries negative connotations to me, apart from the fact that I just don't like the way it sounds.

I think it's far more Chavvy than Jake as well. The Jakes I've known have had clever/posh/arty parents. The same can't be said of the Rhys parents, to put it mildly.
