Would love to hear opinions on some of our possible boys names

Love Jonah

Not Beau or Avery.
Dominic is my favourite.

Dominic is my favourite.

I LOVE Avery, have done for years. It was vetoed instantly by my DP both times (but we had girls in the end anyway!) and I was secretly devastated that he dislikes it. I think it's a wonderful name!

Avery : Just ok
Jonah: A bit dull
Fraser: not my taste but strong
Beau: love it
Dominic: I dislike this, dated, old man-ish.

Jonah is really lovely.

The only Dominics that I've known have been bratty so it puts me off the name.

Avery. Although It's a boys' name. Sounds very pretty and feminine to my ears.
Jonah. Not fussed, sorry
Fraser. Awful. Although quite unique now.
Beau.See Avery.
Dominic. Best out of a bad bunch

Jonah is my definate favourite.

Avery - Very, very popular for girls in the US (16th most popular name).

Jonah - My favourite.

Fraser - I don't dislike this, but I don't particularly like it either. Good if you don't want a name that can be shortened easily!

Beau - Nope.

Dominic - Don't mind this, although I went to school with a few Dominics, so it strikes me as a bit outdated.

I love Dominic, and Jonah comes in second.

Don't like the others at all.

Avery - Reminds me of aviary
Jonah - love it
Fraser - nice
Beau - girls name
Dominic - makes me think of Sunday and 80's Chelsea but it's nice.

Surely Beau is a boys names confused It's the masculine version of beautiful in French. Fwiw, I really like Beau for a boy, Beau is my favourite.

Not keen on Dominic, it is dated (very 90s/80s ). And Dom is awful.

Fraser is ok, not my cup of tea but a perfectly good name. However it makes me think of Frasier (the 90s American sitcom).

Not overly fond of Jonah.

Avery is terrible imo.

Jonah is gorgeous, classic but a bit different and love the meaning (peace).

Also like Dominic. Strong and also a bit different.

Fraser -quite nice.

Dislike Beau and Avery.

CakeRattleandRoll Tue 29-Nov-16 08:27:19

I like Fraser best, Dominic is nice too.

Agree that Avery is a girl's name, very popular in US and will undoubtedly be in UK soon.

Dominic and Jonah are very cool.

Fraser is nice.

Beau is horrible.

Avery is horrible.

I love Dominic - it was on the list for all 3 of my daughters grin Jonah would be my next favourite. I'm not as fussed on the other three at all.

KlingybunFistelvase Tue 29-Nov-16 10:09:19

3) Dominic
