Our little one is 5 weeks old (almost 6!) and we haven't decided on his name yet.

Which do you like best?

Elliot - definitely, it just sounds perfect smile

I like Elliot most.

Followed by Theodore.

I'm not a fan of Noah.

Congrats! flowers

Elliot - I know too many Noah's and Theodore is just clunky & gets shortened to Theo which I don't like.

That would be much Order of preference.

Theodore because as a pp said Teddy is a gorgeous nickname

Thank you smile

I feel like I'd probably not use Teddy (but I do really like it!) because I'd like to call him by Theodore (I feel like alternating between Theodore and Teddy could be quite confusing, as they sound so different? Whereas, alternating between Theo and Theodore would be fine?)

Elliot. Beautiful.

I love Theodore but Theo / Ted / Teddy / Ned don't appeal much. His friends WILL shorten his name after a certain age, even if you never do.

Noah was in the top 10 most popular boys names last year. It's a good name but the over popularity would put me off.

Sophronia Sun 19-Mar-17 21:48:35

All are very 'now', I'm not keen on any of them to be honest, but I'll say Theodore.

PointlessUsername Sun 19-Mar-17 21:49:48

Theodore i Like and Teddy as a nickname.

DramaAlpaca Sun 19-Mar-17 21:49:53

I'm not mad on any either, but I'd go with Theodore.

Ijumpalot Sun 19-Mar-17 23:20:48

I have a Theodore, nn Ted or Teddy, we love it

I would go with Theodore. I don't like Elliot at all, seems like a very weak name to me. And Noah is just too popular and of the moment for me.

Five weeks? Bloody hell, mine were all named when I was five weeks pregnant!! Elliot is the best
