Of the two, Alfie, preferably with Alfred on the BC to give a more grown up option.

I have an irrational dislike of Noah.

Alfie is over.

Noah like my lovely nephew

Both fine but too popular. Of the two, Noah.

Noah always makes me think of someone emphatically saying 'no'.

Alfred with Alfie for short

DramaAlpaca Fri 06-Jan-17 19:18:18

Waitrose that's similar to why I don't like Noah, except that I think of it as someone saying 'no' indecisively!

Noah if you are set on one or the other.

All the Alfie's I know are chavs.

Don't like Noah much so I'd say Alfie. It's cute but you can still imagine it on a teenager or adult. Not sure about Alfred on the birth certificate, while I am usually strongly in favour of 'full name on birth certificate to give options later' Alfred just doesn't seem a very attractive name somehow, quite different from Alfie. Which is probably daft, I know.

DTwin2 is Noah grin

Noah. Alfie is just meh to me.

Alfie! I've never actually met and Alfie so to me it's not a popular name. Noah on the other hand is super popular and I know quite a few. I also just think Alfie sounds cute

1. Alfred
2. Noah

Both are way overused.

Noah. I hear Alfie so much - almost every girl I know who had a baby while we were still at school called hers Alfie (the male babies, obviously), it was very in at the time, so there's a gaggle of school aged ones now in our area. I hear it in every classroom, on every bus, soft play, supermarket...
