Can't believe I'm asking a bunch of strangers but I need help choosing baby boy name. Due any day now and have a Jessica already.
Husband wants a Jenson or Joshua but I'm not keen on another j. Not sure why. Do I need to get over my fear of 2 J's?
I think I like Ben or Zak.
I'd like something a bit unusual but fear it being Poncey or chavvy!!!

I think Jenson and Joshua are too simular to Jessica personally.

No need to go for another J name, Joshua is fairly classic but Jenson will date.


I like Zak, there's one at my DCs primary

I love Ben. It's safe gentle yet at the sametime strong and not overly common.
Jessica and Ben certainly has a ring to it
I don't like Joshua and Jensen is awful.
Not fussed on Zak either, but. It's all about opinions. I guess.

So, something unusual but not too [the word MNers hate] or poncey, and goes with Jessica.

Jessica and....

What name do you worry about being poncy?

Nothing wrong with two J's

Me and my sister are two M's with a dad who is an M

The biggest obstacle is my husband. I like lots of names, including suggestions in here but he likes nothing!

Jessica and Joseph (Joe).
Jessica and Benedict (Ben).
Jessica and Samuel (Sam).
Jessica and Daniel (Dan).
Jessica and Thomas (Tom).

Don't go for another J! It's awful and you will end up calling one child by the others name.

My name begins with a C and my daughter's with a K. My DH and friends often call us by the others name! It's obviously not the end of the world and they correct themselves, but we never realised it would be an issue. I would imagine this would happen even more with siblings.

I really don't want another j. I love Daniel but husband says no.

Jessica and Isaac
Jessica and James
Jessica and Xander

What kind of name does husband like OP ?

Caldini22 Sun 11-Sep-16 18:03:12

Jessica and William
Jessica and Thomas

I do like Ben too. I think two Js would be ok, would prefer James.

JazzAnnNonMouse Sun 11-Sep-16 18:44:17

I think Jessica is quite a 'normal' name so you couldn't have somethung like forest afterwards!

I would go for something like:

He doesn't overly like anything. It will give us something to chat about during the labour confused

HettyB Sun 11-Sep-16 20:48:46

If all else fails, you've got six weeks after the birth to agree on something!

Or you can adopt the approach I did, mention the name you love at every possible opportunity until he comes around to the idea!

We went with Benjamin!!!

ShmooBooMoo Sat 08-Oct-16 03:34:01

I think Michael is due a comeback. Nathan is nice too.

katemess12 Sat 08-Oct-16 06:18:57
