Should we stick with a family/traditional name - Thomas?

Or go for something new/trendy - Ezra?

Thomas for me. Ezra does feel a bit trendy. It is cool though.

I prefer Ezra, but also really like Tom, not Thomas. I'm not keen on Thomas, despite knowing some very cute little boys of that name.

No help.
I love both!

Ezra is great.
Thomas is a bit dull.

Ezra Thomas is good.

Thomas Ezra.

Thomas because it has a classic and timeless feel to it. I like Ezra, but I think it is just having a bit of a moment.

Thomas if you call him Tommy.

Ezra otherwise.

I used to love Ezra but It's very trendy - obviously there's still more Thomass born each year but I wonder if Ezra is going to end up seeming very of a particular time.
I don't think it's a massive issue so long as you give him both names he can always choose which he Wanrs in later life

Both are really lovely but Thomas is timeless. Ezra is very "now", having not been used much for decades. I do like the sound of Ezra though, and the simplicity of its being pronounced as it's written. Tough choice.

I like both. My daughter would of been Thomas had she of been a he. If you are still pregnant maybe wait and see what he looks like. Upon seeing him one of the names may just suit him more.

Thanks everyone - Thomas is my favourite so happy to see others agree that its a timeless name.
