Same from me: Alex/ Alexander.

Noah, 100%. My kids had loads of Alex's in their classes, but zero Noah's.

Alexander. One of my favourite names.

Alexander is done to death.

If you're in the NW, Alexander. Noah is pretty common here and sounds terrible depending where you're from!

Another vote for Noah, lots of Alex's around here too.

Alexander nn Xander

Personal views only I really don't like the name Noah at all

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 29-Jan-17 06:12:30

Yuck, not Xander. Reminds me of that plonker Alexander 'call me Xander' Armstrong.

Fair point mitzy!! I just happen to know a couple of really great kids who are called xander

Alexander - more scope for nicknames. Noah seems to be very popular at the moment if that is a concern.

lizzieoak Sun 29-Jan-17 06:33:34

What about Alec or Noam?

Both are lovely.

Alexander. But be prepared to be that parent that only calls them their full name when they're in trouble!!!

Alexander, there are small Noahs everywhere.

Noah, lovely name & cant my shortened. You will end up with an Alex

Pootles2010 Sun 29-Jan-17 07:09:41

I like Noah but it's suddenly popular that I would worry about it sound dated in 20 years time.

I'm not a fan of many "traditional" names but Alexander is one I like. Such a strong name.

So I'd go with Alexander.

MrsMeeseeks Sun 29-Jan-17 11:44:06

Alex. I just don't 'get' Noah as a child's name.
