Thank you very much.

I love Gideon and really don't like Jadon personally. So, Gideon for me!

Jadon is massively unpopular in here, so Gideon is the better of the 2 (but not my cup of tea).

Neither. Jadon is naff and Gideon is osbourne

Gideon a million times over.

Gideon is slightly better but reminds me of George Osborne.

Jadon is silly, made-up and ugly.
Gideon is pretentious and ugly.

How bout Jadeon?

ChippyMinton Sat 01-Apr-17 19:39:24

They are polar opposites - I think you need to decide what impression you are going for...

Itaintme Sat 01-Apr-17 19:39:50


But most on here will choose Gideon even if they hate it.

Not even sure how you'd pronounce Jadon ?

NoArmaniNoPunani Sat 01-Apr-17 19:44:46

Jadon is a biblical name. It's as made up as Noah hmm

user1491070688 Sat 01-Apr-17 19:45:25

Boris how is it made-up?

Salty I'm not messing with the spelling.

Lugeeta Sat 01-Apr-17 19:49:51

Jadon is a different name from Jayden. It's a biblical name and not made up.

I don't like either though!🙈what about Gullies or Julian?

Gideon is George Osbornes real name. It's so poncey even he had to change it. And he's not one to hide his poshoness. It's a very punchable sort of name IMO.

And Jayden is a bit..... of the moment? I don't think it will age v well. Also makes me think of will smiths awful and rather strange child.

What about Gabriel (Gabe)? It's got similar sounds to your picks, but more angelic association grin

notanothernamechangebabes Sat 01-Apr-17 20:01:10

Sorry misread Jadon: Jayden.

Still not a huge fan sadly...

Jacob? If you like biblical names?

Jadon is a blibical name. But urban dictionary gives a sex god definition of it. I'm not up with urban slangs so not sure how widely use is it?

HeadDreamer Sat 01-Apr-17 20:18:57

And yes I'd think of Jayden if you use Jadon

HeadDreamer Sat 01-Apr-17 20:20:44

Gideon reminds me of Osborne too. Sorry.

mrsBeverleygoldberg Sat 01-Apr-17 20:29:18

Gideon is awful. Just no.

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 01-Apr-17 21:22:49

If I had to make a choice Jadon by a country mile and even that's awful
Gideon is ghastly. It just makes me think of that fucking 'thing'. I've got to much respect for my cheap tatty £7.99 per month tesco phone to say his name
