This is what we're down to, and vaguely in this order too, although there isn't much difference between them in our minds at this point. Struggling to decide on one we love more than the others.

The title should say "what are your faves", sorry!

In order of preference
Ayo - can't say I've heard this before so unsure about it
Alexis - I know a female of that name so would prefer Alex

Milo ok
Owen dull
Leon like
Ezra ok
Ayo ?
Alexis no

Leon and Owen. I've never heard Ayo and only know a female Alexis. Milo is a chocolate drink or a dog to me, while Ezra is a wizened item like a tiny walnut.

Ezra, Leon or Owen.
Milo reminds me of the tweenies.
Alexis I think of as a girls name.

I love Alexis and like Ezra

Milo = Tweenies or a fortifying drink.

I like Leon or Owen. Not keen on Ezra, I think it's becoming quite 'trendy'. Milo I associate with the drink and I've only ever heard Alexis as a girl's name, although Alex is fab. Ayo sounds made up, or like a rapper's nickname that you'd hear on Radio 1 - "next up we have 'Shake ya Booty' by Rihanna featuring Ayo" grin

Milo - I like it but it's very 'now' so it might date more than a classic name
Owen - it's a nice name, but it doesn't do it for me
Leon - as above, nothing wrong with it but I don't love it
Ezra - like it but it does seem quite popular at the moment
Ayo - I wouldn't use this due to the confusing pronounciation - it is Eye-oh? Ay-oh? Ah-yo?
Alexis - I think of this as a predominantly female name (which is odd as the only one I've met in real life was a man)

I like Milo and Leon

PunkAssMoFo Thu 08-Sep-16 06:54:20

I like Leon.

I like Leon and Ezra but I think Ezra is very Du Jour and will date badly

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Thu 08-Sep-16 08:02:04

I love your list op!

Milo (really like)
Owen (really like, though I prefer the Irish spelling Eoin)
Leon (LOVE!)
Ezra (Love, but I keep hearing it's becoming v popular if that bothers you)
Ayo (dislike)
Alexis (it's ok)

Jooni Thu 08-Sep-16 08:07:36

I really like Milo. Also Alexis.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Thu 08-Sep-16 08:09:06

Alexis is actually growing on me... I'm changing my "it's ok" to a "like". Will probably be "love" by end of the day grin.

I think of Alexis as a girl's name, but I appreciate that it is a male name in some languages.

I like Owen and Milo best.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Thu 08-Sep-16 08:21:03

Like Milo and Leon.

MrsCaecilius Thu 08-Sep-16 12:49:11

Milo is the only one I like, however it is also a chocolate and malt drink in some parts of the world!

Dontrocktheboat Thu 08-Sep-16 17:35:52

I like Ezra and Leon. Owen is ok.

I would think of Alexis as a girl's name.
