Like them both... sorry not helpful. Think I would go for Gabriel.

LOVE Gabriel grin

I desperately wanted ds to be a Gabriel but Dh vetoed it.

I like his name now (Alexander) but I still pine for a little Gabe. Let me live vicariously through you grin

Gabriel is such a lovely name. I keep seeing people say there DH's don't like it and my DH doesn't like it much either!

It's a gorgeous name and it is a very pan European name so travels very well.

Gabriel. DD was being Gabriel had she been male.

Reuben. It's a lovely name. Really not keen on Gabriel, though I know that puts me in the minority.

I love Gabriel. Husband vetoed it-for all six of our sons-because he insists he would be called Gayboy at school.

I love them both. Not helpful I know!

I prefer Reuben but I think it's awfully popular now...

Reuben for me. I find Gabriel quite a feminine name, although that's probably because I've always wanted a Gabrielle.

Reuben - not a fan of Gabriel at all !

Like them both, but my favourite is definitely Gabriel.

I like both but prefer Reuben.

I like both, but prefer Reuben by quite a bit.

Reuben is my top choice if we ever have a boy. Hoping it doesn't get too popular (so choose Gabriel grin) I've always wanted a Roo. I think it's such a cute nickname. Both are nice though
