Little boy is 2 days old. Looking for opinions on Jack and Caspian. Which would you go for? Thank you x

I like Jack, even though it's popular.

I like Jack but I prefer Caspian.

I like both, but Caspian feels quite OTT. Depends which way you want to go really. I think I'd go with Jack personally.

Congratulations! flowers

Personally jack. I do like caspian but it is quite a brave choice. What about Casper too ?

Jack, one of my favourite boys name.

Caspian. Jack is terribly over used and surely has a lot of negative connotations?

Definitely Jack. I think Caspian is a bit twee.

Congratulations on your new baby flowers

Jack is boring!!

Congratulations! Another vote for Jack. Caspian makes me think of the character in the Narnia series.

Both nice but Jack - so common! I would go for something less prolific so it's Caspian for me.

Caspian! I love Caspian, DH vetoed it for us though sad

Jack is nice, but I much prefer Caspian. It's lovely!

Jack was the no.1 boys name for years, so Caspian is more unusual. I also think of Jack as being quite nicknamey, as although it's a "stand alone" name too, it's traditionally a nickname for John.

Both very different in style and feel. I definitely prefer Jack, it's much more down to earth.

If it were between Jack and Caspar, I'd choose Caspar. I don't like Caspian.

I have a Casper Jack so love both names, but would have gone for Caspian had it worked better with our last name. Have you tried imagining him grown up, and thinking about which you feel would work better then? Sounds silly but I always think of names on a wedding invite, or saying I do, or introducing himself in a business setting, and that helped me get a feel for the long term too. Both are fab though, and congratulations!

Caspian. It's really unusual, but I do like it. I prefer it to Caspar too. Jack is just too popular and a bit boring...

BradleyPooper Sat 11-Feb-17 04:19:29

Caspian. I used to live a mile from the Caspian Sea....

CaoNiMa Sat 11-Feb-17 06:14:53

Extremely different names!

If you want him to blend in, go with Jack. Lovely strong but very popular name.

Caspian is gorgeous but it's a showstopper. Nobody will forget a Caspian!
