I like Reuben and Ruben.

But I think I'd presume some... "continental" background if I met somebody named Ruben.

I like Reuben it's on our list

I like both but every second boy is called Reuben around here!

Elliot. There are fewer of them. I like the look of Reuben but it always make me think of "rue the day".

hazeydays14 Mon 08-May-17 20:13:52

Elliot, I think it has more of a timeless quality if that makes sense

Definitely Elliot. Not a fan of Rueben at all.

Elliot sounds like a weak name to me. And it will always be spelled wrongly (2 Ls 2Ts, 1L 1T etc etc).

Reuben is much better.

FWIW I know brothers with these names.

Love Elliot and want it for my ds (pregnant) but my oh is not a fan unfortunately.

I wanted to DS1 Elliot, but DH wouldn't agree. He wouldn't let me call DS2 Elliot either sad

Reuben is a sandwich.

Here Reuben Sandwich

Elliot sounds like a weak name to me

Me too. I think it's very weak.

Rockaby Mon 08-May-17 21:12:30

Reuben by miles, though there is nothing particularly wrong with Elliot.

Reuben! Or Ruben. Either spelling.
I think it's beautiful and I actually don't know any.
