Hello Mumsnet!

Baby boy is 12 days old. We just can't decide. Some opinions would be very helpful.

The 8 names:
- Aidan
- Elliot
- Finn
- Hayden
- Isaac
- Noah
- Oliver
- Reuben

The one we like the least is Oliver - it has an obvious NN. We don't mind the name being shortened/given a NN, but I can't see him having 'Reubs' or 'Els', etc. written on his books at school, but Ollie may well be!

In that order. Congratulations! flowers

My order of preference would be;

Isaac
Noah
Finn
Hayden
Reuben
Aidan
Oliver

Elliot

I've put Elliot on it's own as I really would never use it!

Congratulations on your new baby flowers.

I like Isaac and Reuben best.

Elliot and Reuben are great.

We haven't ruled Oliver out! smile so that's still helpful.

Thanks all.

Love Finn and Elliott. Hayden is quite good also.

Noah is very popular at the moment.

Reuben and Aidan are my favourites.

Hayden is my least favourite.

Noah and Oliver are both very popular ATM.

Biased but Isaac all the way for me wink

Noah

Aidan and Reuben. I also really like Oliver but given that you've got seven other names, perhaps you should strike it off your list? Might help to narrow things down a bit! Congratulations!

Elliot

OvO Sat 14-Jan-17 18:17:59

I like Finn the best.

littlejeopardy Sat 14-Jan-17 18:21:35

I love Finn. Would use it if I had a son.

Piper2017 Sat 14-Jan-17 18:21:41

Thanks all smile I don't care absolutely popularity! Also, we would spell it Elliot and not Elliott

Oops *about

We haven't ruled Oliver out! smile so that's still helpful.

This is why you have still got 8 names after almost 2 weeks.😀 You are going to have to get ruthless with your list. Oliver is your least favourite, cross it off and work from a list of 7

My vote is for Isaac.

Oliver
Isaac
Reuben
I like these names equally OP.
