We think we've narrowed down our list of boys names to a top two...

Ethan or Oscar.

Which do you prefer?

Other names left on our list are Adam, Samuel, Ryan and Oliver.

Big brother is Matthew.

If pushed, Ethan, but I prefer Adam.

Ethan is one of my least favourite names.

Garnethair Fri 03-Feb-17 09:59:25

I like both

RedSauce Fri 03-Feb-17 11:15:50

Oscar, definitely.

I love Oscar.

I have an irrational dislike for Ethan. Possibly due to knowing someone with a speech impediment who pronounces if eefan.

Ethan definitely! Great name

Oscar by miles for me.

Oh just saw other options and really like Adam and Samuel too. Oscar still pips it for me though.

The other names are all so popular
Ethan is a solid biblical name

Ethan and Samuel are my faces from your choices x

Faves not faces 😂

Oscar by miles.

Ethan v footballer's son.

ManonLescaut Fri 03-Feb-17 13:04:25

Way too many Sams and Ollys in the world.

Adam is lovely.

Crabbo Fri 03-Feb-17 13:12:34

I like them both, probably prefer Oscar. Not so keen on the others. Why not wait and see what he suits when he's here (unless he has arrived already...)

I don't like either Ethan or Oscar, but I like Adam.

Pogolphin Fri 03-Feb-17 15:02:23

Owen! Far too many Ethan and Oscars.

MrsMeeseeks Fri 03-Feb-17 15:04:07

They must be the two most popular names at the moment.

mum2be2boys Fri 03-Feb-17 15:13:48

Thank you everyone! I'm still not sure between either of them to be honest, nothing seems to feel right at the moment.

I love my oldest son's name and nothing seems to compare at the moment! I think all of the others on the list have been the favourite at one point or another. It feels like this baby is going to be nameless when he gets here!

I like Ethan because I like that it shares the 'th' sound with Matthew, but it doesn't feel enough at the moment.

I know Ethan is high on the top 100 list, but I've only met one in real life (who is 12) and I don't know any Oscars at all!

Sophronia Fri 03-Feb-17 15:14:12

Neither, but I do like Adam with Matthew

ApplesOranges Fri 03-Feb-17 15:24:26

Don't know many Ethans but know quite a few Oscars x

Sorry x is habit!
