Just that really, these are the two names left on our list for ds2, due in a couple of weeks.

Which one?

I much prefer Conor.

Tough one as they are both gorgeous, two of the nicest boys' names I would say. Maybe Conor is just marginally ahead so Conor!

My favourite is Luke.

I also like both (prefer spelling as Connor though). What's your other ds called?

Luke is lovely

I'd go for Luke.

If you are in the UK, Conor will be forever misspelled as Connor.

We have a Connor

Nearly spelt it Conor but then thought he would spend forever correcting so spent it the normal way

I like Connor (obviously) more than Luke

Order Lucas to Luke.

Prefer not order!

ah thanks for the feedback, good to know neither name is universally hated! But not so helpful in helping us choose!

To those who have asked, we are in NI and Conor is by far the more popular spelling (in 2015 Conor ranked 17 on the baby name list and Connor was 102). Connor would generally be regarded as the surname spelling here, rather than the first name spelling. The two Connors I know seem to spend their lives correcting people.

I'm English but Conor is still the "normal" spelling to me.

SorenaJ Mon 14-Nov-16 17:03:58

I prefer Luke

babyblabber Mon 14-Nov-16 17:27:15

Soubriquet one N is the normal way, not two!

It's an Irish name and no one in Ireland would ever spell it Connor, because as mentioned that's a surname!

thegirlinthecar Mon 14-Nov-16 17:38:05

I'm in NI too. I prefer Conor They're both lovely names but I have heard of so many baby Lukes recently if you're concerned about popularity .

Soubriquet Mon 14-Nov-16 17:38:09

I've never seen it spelt with one n in England.

I've grown up with a name spelt wrong so didn't want that for my ds.

CrystalMcPistol Mon 14-Nov-16 17:51:10

Connor looks wrong to me.

If you're in NI spell it Conor otherwise you'll be inviting eyerollery grin. I like Conor, they would be one or two in each of my kids school year (I'm in Belfast). I find Luke a bit meh, a bit of a non name, but that might be more to do with the Lukes I know

Soubriquet Mon 14-Nov-16 19:12:19

Don't think we will ever be going to NI but I shall bear that in mind grin
