Baby boy is all new, squishy, beautiful and perfect wink

Our 3 final names:

1. Elliot
2. Noah
3. Billy (William)

Which one? We thought we would just know, but we don't! sad

Billy. It's a gorgeous name!

I love William but not Billy so much (sorry). Elliot is a bit wet. Noah is a strong name; for what it's worth, all the Noahs we know are Jewish.
Congratulations on your gorgeous new baby boy!!!

GRSJ0511 Fri 28-Oct-16 18:55:35

Thanks, both. What does a wet name mean?

Elliot! There are so many William's (admittedly none of the 5 I know go by Billy) and Noah also very popular.

Elliot and Noah are awful names

Congratulations flowers. Enjoy those newborn squishy cuddles.

Elliot or William (not Billy)
Silly question but have you called each name at a time, over and over? I've heard it helps

pensivepolly Fri 28-Oct-16 19:00:23

"wet" = connotation of being a bit weak, a bit of a drip - just my opinion obviously

Chinlo Fri 28-Oct-16 19:00:26

Noah by a long way.

Then Elliot.

Then Billy way down here in "don't do it!" territory.

Noah or Elliot
Don't like William/Billy, I think it's quite boring and there are lots in my generation (born mid-80s)

FWIW I only know of two boys called Noah and neither is Jewish. It's v popular now, in case that's a factor for you.

I like Elliot and don't think it's "wet" at all (hate it when people use that word to describe boy's names, as if boy's names have to be "manly" hmm)

Lots of newborn news today.
Congratulations flowers

Elliot! Enjoy loads of cuddles!!!

GRSJ0511 Fri 28-Oct-16 19:01:53

The name would be Billy, until he decided otherwise smile so it wouldn't be William.

ample - yes sad I hoped that was going to decide for me! It hasn't, so here I am wink

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 28-Oct-16 19:02:12

Elliott isn't a wet name.

GRSJ0511 Fri 28-Oct-16 19:02:37

Thanks all for the congrats!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 28-Oct-16 19:02:56

Let us know what you decide

GRSJ0511 Fri 28-Oct-16 19:03:30

ThroughThickAndThin01 - will do smile

William and Billy are a no from me.

I like Elliott.

FuckThatToOneSide Fri 28-Oct-16 19:04:01

William by miles and miles. Noah is also nice; it's just the popularity that puts me off, so if that doesn't bother you then I like Noah nearly as much as William.

Elliot I really don't like. It's just one of those names which makes my teeth itch for no good reason!

PiSeas Fri 28-Oct-16 19:04:26

Elliot is a lovely name
