These are our final 2 smile he would be Jadon Matthew or Noah Matthew (Matthew is my dad's name) thanks!

I've never heard of Jadon but I know a gorgeous little boy called Noah so that makes me biassmile

how does one pronounce Jadon? jaw dawn, jay dawn sorry not keen on that choice.
noah is classic smile

Alfieee Thu 21-Sep-17 00:43:40

Noah is no more classic than Jadon! Thank you for commenting smile

Elllicam Thu 21-Sep-17 00:47:59

I've never heard of Jadon either, is it pronounced like Jayden or Jah-donn? I like Noah.

Alfieee Thu 21-Sep-17 00:49:47

Well, I suppose Jah-donn would be more accurate, but we've accepted he'd get Jay-donn smile and we are more than happy with that!

Noah for me

feelinmightylow Thu 21-Sep-17 01:06:34

Jadon sounds common, sorry

pilotswife Thu 21-Sep-17 01:09:40

Jadon is awful
Noah is a great name

Elllicam Thu 21-Sep-17 01:11:08

I don't think it sounds common, it is a biblical name. There's Jadon the meronothite from the Old Testament. I still prefer Noah though.

Alfieee Thu 21-Sep-17 01:11:27

Awful? shock what do you mean by 'common'? hmm

feelinmightylow Thu 21-Sep-17 01:12:59

If it's Jah-don it's...possibly ok
If it's jay-don it's just.. we'll come on.

Please don't succumb your child to a lifetime of having to spell their name out phonetically. I have that issue for both my first & last name! Really gets old & frustrating pretty quickly

Mumsthewordssshhh Thu 21-Sep-17 01:14:26

I know a couple of Jayden and not so keen on Jadon (pronounced with the Ja). Sounds a bit like someone prouncing 'bucket' like the lady in one foot in the grave (bouquet)! I know a Noah too. Think Noah Matthew works nicely.

NameChangeFamousFolk Thu 21-Sep-17 01:18:35

Out of those two, definitely Noah. Although I might even prefer Matthew as the first name!

Alfieee Thu 21-Sep-17 01:20:24

Neither isn't helpful hmm

I really can't use Matthew. I don't want my son to have my dad's name!

Lottey90 Thu 21-Sep-17 01:21:31

Jadon reminds me of Jayden..and yeah. Where I live there are too many Jayden's.
Then again it is jadon not Jayden. So out of the two I'd probably go with that.

Apparently Noah's are ten a penny now.

I do love Matthew

Needalifeoverhaul Thu 21-Sep-17 01:21:50

I'm afraid I don't like Jadon either OP. Noah Matthew is lovely though.

Sophronia Thu 21-Sep-17 01:32:29

I'm not keen on either, but Noah if I had to choose. Jadon is too much like Jayden, which has some negative connotations.

notangelinajolie Thu 21-Sep-17 01:37:39

Please let it not be Jadon. Dreadful name.

SuperBeagle Thu 21-Sep-17 01:41:44

Jadon is a Biblical name, so just as classic as Noah, in that sense.

I prefer Jadon, because I think the religious connotations of Noah are far more pervasive (old man with an ark and some animals), and because Noah is so ridiculously popular.

Alfieee Thu 21-Sep-17 01:43:22

I appreciate everyone has an opinion, but really, what is so 'dreadful' about Jadon? I've never seen any other biblical name described in such a way.

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 21-Sep-17 01:48:35

There are lots of Jaydons and Kaydons and Braydons round here and Jadon will get tarred with that brush. If you care, I don't particularly. And it looks nice.

Lottey90 Thu 21-Sep-17 02:49:32

Yeah basically would look like your one of the Jaydon braydon kaydon sheep

Ham69 Thu 21-Sep-17 07:09:43

Sorry OP but you have asked opinions and have to accept criticsm.
Jadon really isn't going to be a popular choice. It doesn't have a great reputation.
I'd go with Noah.
