Having planned c section on Feb 7th. We are not sure what we are having yet but almost everyone has said boy based on my bump. We have a boy and girl already (Belle and Milo). Thanks!

Jude matches your current names perfectly I think! Great names.
Good luck with the c section xx

Another vote for Jude! :-)

MuddyMoose Thu 26-Jan-17 12:04:13

I prefer Jude. Good luck with your c section x

I think that Jude goes better with your other names. Also, I can never quite get past 'rude' with the name Rudy.

Pipilangstrumpf Thu 26-Jan-17 12:21:13

Jude definitely!

Rudy is way too rude!

I knew a lovely Jude when I worked in Scotland. On the other hand, there's a Rudy in my hometown who is a well-known local personality who thinks he's God and goes around predicting people's futures. He's amusing and probably harmless but it's not got a good connotation for me!

I know exactly which town you live in Namechange!

Rudy gets my vote. I think I am the only one! I knew a Rudi years ago in the Netherlands. He was very handsome. A bit of a holiday fling, only to find out afterwards he had a girlfriend. sad
Jude was on my 1st baby name list; but rejected by my dh at the time. (Now ex. grin)

i think Jude Law has a son called Rudy.

I prefer Jude. I used to think of it as more of a girl's name, as I knew various Judiths at school, and some of them got shortened to Jude. I have got over that now though.

Rudy sounds a bit rude and could also be misheard as Ruby. I dont dislike it though.

What is your name if you have a girl?

Jooni Thu 26-Jan-17 12:55:08

Rudy is nice and a bit more unusual, but I personally prefer Jude. Lovely, strong, straightforward name.

Willialwaysbelookeddownon Thu 26-Jan-17 12:57:17

I loooove Rudy. Jude just reminds me of Jude Law who I can't stand and 'Hey Jude' which I equally can't stand!

OP your DCs names are beautiful and I love both Rudy and Jude, but as I've come across lots of little boys called Jude lately and its super trendy so lost its quirky uniqueness for me- I'd go for the lovely Rudy. Rudy is more unusual so people here probably going for Jude, but Rudy is a real grower- adorable on a boy and lovely on a man too.

Sophronia Thu 26-Jan-17 13:00:32

I prefer Rudy

Another vote for Jude.

BroomstickOfLove Thu 26-Jan-17 13:08:01

Jude, partly because I like the name, but mostly because I have been humming A Message to You Rudy under my breath since this appeared on active threads and now I can't get it out of my head.

macd77 Thu 26-Jan-17 13:18:53

Oh thank you everyone!! Still very husband prefers Rudy and I prefer Jude but we may wait to see who appears before making a decision!!

What girls name have you picked? blush

macd77 Thu 26-Jan-17 13:54:35

Again, very undecided on girls. We like Martha, Kitty and Vivi (short for Vivien/Vivian/Vivienne).

MaryAll Thu 26-Jan-17 13:55:08

I think Jude is more masculine so one vote there. Good luck!

goldenrachita Thu 26-Jan-17 14:13:18

I'm in the minority but Jude is a bit overused for my taste. It does go well with your current names and fits your taste well.
Personally, I really love Rudy. I think it's a strong, joyful name that is also a little bit posh (in a very good way).
