Sam. Jae is weird.

MrsMeeseeks Tue 14-Feb-17 17:52:24

Jay, Sam, Jae

For a boy?

Jae is an odd name.

Sam is the better of those two. Jae is not very appealing to see written down and potentially confusing to say/spell. Presumably it's pronounced like Jay?

Sam, but I am very biased because I have one and he is great. In a school of nearly 500, he was the only Sam when he joined. More have followed though.

Jay is ok, but not Jae.

Sam. Jae will spend his life saying 'J A E - no not Y, E!' And have lifetime of raised eyebrows and eye rolls.

Sam for sure

Jay is ok...not massively keen on it, but it is a name. Jae isn't one I've seen before, I'm not a fan. Of the two, I'd go for Sam.

Sam. It's timeless and makes me think of very nice boy

OnHold Tue 14-Feb-17 18:12:36

'A lifetime of eyerolls' if he lives in MN land.

Jay seems bit faddy

I have one of my own
A strapping 6"2' 27 year old
I really don't like Jae

OnHold Tue 14-Feb-17 18:16:26

Go on ,OP . Go for Jae. Every other one of my Sons mates is called Sam
