What do you think of the name Noel?

It's Okay, I don't dislike it.
I prefer it reversed, Leon.

Sophronia Sat 22-Apr-17 22:16:02

I really like it.

KatherinaMinola Sat 22-Apr-17 22:17:37

Love it, but only for a Christmas baby (in case that needs saying).

BlondeGinger Sat 22-Apr-17 22:21:45

Love it. My lovely, crazy granddad was a Noel so I'll use it somewhere in my boys name if I ever have one.

It makes me think of Noel Edmunds.
I prefer Noelle on a girl.

Imfinehowareyou Sat 22-Apr-17 22:24:02

Will you pronounce it nole or no-all?

longtermsinglemummy Sat 22-Apr-17 22:29:18

My Dad, lovely Grandad and cousin are all Noels. Love it.

Dislike it. Was really popular in Ireland in the 70s so sounds ultra dated to me. Also Noel Edmonds. Also it rhymes with hole.

Sugarpie I was going to say I prefer it reversed too - Leon is nice.

I really don't like Noel. I don't like names beginning with 'No' it seems. I dislike Noah too.

MitzyLeFrouf Sat 22-Apr-17 22:32:59

And Noelle is just as bad.

Like it, and Joel.

I like it, it's not very common these days so sounds refreshing.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 23-Apr-17 08:51:56

DramaAlpaca, me too. 🤔

FenellaMaxwellsPony Sun 23-Apr-17 08:55:09

Bit dated. Edmunds.

It makes me think of Edmunds/Mr Blobby too, but them I am quite old smile

mummabearfoyrbabybears Sun 23-Apr-17 09:12:38

It just doesn't roll of my tongue well.

thebakerwithboobs Sun 23-Apr-17 09:15:52

The Christmas thing is a non issue. (And that's from me-my name is January, I was born in June....)

HalfCarrot Sun 23-Apr-17 11:39:55

It's fine till he has a house party.

EverbodyTalkAboutPopMusic Sun 23-Apr-17 18:07:35

grin at Half

maitaimojito Sun 23-Apr-17 22:15:10

Not a fan, although I love Joel.
