Not helpful, but I think they're both lovely

Those are my DN's names. I think they're lovely!

HandyManJack Sun 16-Apr-17 13:42:37

Not a lot of love for Conor! Why's that? smile

Not keen on either. I like Adrian though!

I like both - are you Irish OP? Aidan is more common outside of Ireland than Conor/Connor.

My cousin in his mid-30s is Conor as are 4 of his close friends. 😧 I don't think it's quite so popular these days.

Love them both. I'd lean towards Conor

Like them both - would probably go for Aidan though. I only know one adult Conor (spelled like that) and it is a beautiful name. However, if you're asking why people are going for Aidan in preference, I think it's because Connor (with that spelling) has a bit of a reputation as a "naughty boy" name daren't even whisper the ch word, in my area at least. I think Aidan is perhaps a more unusual choice.

both lovely, but i'd go for Conor. It was a strong contender for ds2.

My ten month old DS is Conor and I absolutely love the name! Disappointed to see such little love for it :-(
My husband is Irish although we live in England and we wanted a name that leaned towards Irish but was easy to spell.

Clickncollect Sun 16-Apr-17 15:17:03

Actually just re-read the thread and there is a decent amount of love, to be fair. All is forgiven !!

mum2be2boys Sun 16-Apr-17 16:15:08

Prefer Conor :-)

Aidan is more common outside of Ireland than Conor/Connor.
I've actually come across far more English Conor/Connors than Aidans.

ChippieFishieHorshie Sun 16-Apr-17 17:48:57

I really like Conor.

I'm not keen on Aidan. I've heard so many people mangle it...

Conor is lovely imo smile!

ColourfulOrangex Sun 16-Apr-17 19:06:24

Aidan smile

ColourfulOrangex Sun 16-Apr-17 19:06:40

Oh and congratulations OP flowers

DramaAlpaca Sun 16-Apr-17 21:42:27

I really like both and I'm glad you'd go for the correct spellings.

If I absolutely had to choose, I'd pick Conor.

RicketyCricket Sun 16-Apr-17 21:46:37

I would go for Aidan.

I like Conor but really don't like how it sounds when said with an English accent. Irrational I know.
