Our son arrived last night and we like Matthew David but my husband now isn't sure if it's a bit too boring.

Thoughts? Thank you.

Very nice

Snap8TheCat Mon 09-Jan-17 22:21:24

I like it a lot. Congratulations

WoolleyS Mon 09-Jan-17 22:23:33

Thank you both

Classic. I like it.

Beachballl Mon 09-Jan-17 22:27:31

Like it congratulations

I love it.

Neither name is popular or commonly used at the moment, so even though 30+ years ago they may have been seen as "boring", now they're refreshing and a break from the current trend of Alfies/Olivers/Theos etc.

Congrats! flowers

I have a David Matthew (now 18) and I like it! Everyone knows the names and how to spell them but no-one else has them.

I love them, I also have 1 of each. I havent found another David yet but my Matthew is 1 of 3 in his class and theres another 2 in year 1 so it's clearly making a come back. Lovely classic names. grin

It's my brothers name. It is lovely and a classic name. Not boring and a refreshing change.

Perfect. Congratulations, and enjoy your lovely boy!

Super name. Not enough baby Matthews.

David is lovely. Matthew is nice but for some reason I associate it with evangelical Christian preachers from America... hmm

Broccolirevolution Tue 10-Jan-17 20:59:10

Love this name.

RustyBear Tue 10-Jan-17 21:01:09

I like both the names, but then DH is David and DS is Metthew, so maybe I'm biased!

ProseccoPoppy Tue 10-Jan-17 21:02:43

Combo of my DH and DB's names, I like it. It's classic and won't date. Also passed the "could do any job" or "can you put it on a witness statement" tests (i.e. You can imagine Dr Matthew/Matt the bricklayer/Matthew Yourname QC/Matt the musician etc)

ProseccoPoppy Tue 10-Jan-17 21:03:06

And congratulations flowers

buttercup54321 Tue 10-Jan-17 23:04:48

I love it. Mine is 22 x Congratulations xxx

Lovely. Both really classic names - neither over used nor unfashionable. Easy to spell and to pronounce.
