Between two boy’s names

Just found out we are having a little boy. Have a DS already, who has a fairly uncommon one syllable welsh name.

Name choices are Evander or Cassius. I appreciate they are quite full on, but we would only use an abbreviation day to day, probably Evan / Cass. The longer versions would just give him choice later on.

Any preference?

Just be aware that Wayne Rooneys new baby is called Cass..if that makes any difference to your chouce. Love the name Evan..haven't heard of Evander.

I like Evander but not keen on Evan
I like Cassius but don't like Cass
So not much help.

Slightly prefer Evander, and I like Evan as a shortening.

Are you a boxing fan op?? Love both!!

Lifeofpies Sat 17-Feb-18 18:26:48

I had no idea about Wayne Rooney! Ha!

Thanks for the thoughts. Guess there are lots of nn choices for Evander, like Vander, Ev, Van... Evan just sprang to mind first.

snowydays - I know, totally coincidence! It’s a rainbow baby so the fighter association is ok by me. DH now suggests rocky...

I really like Cassius, but not Evander.

Well they're both boxing names, so good choice. Of the two I prefer Evander. You might also like Rockingham shortened Rocky.

Oh I love both..... tough choice! I'd say I prefer Cassius today but might well prefer Evander tomorrow. grin Maybe wait and see what suits him more when he's born?

Evander. Lovely.

Not mad keen on either but think Evander out of the two.

Evander is a great name.

ChocolateCrunch Sat 17-Feb-18 20:37:50

Evander, but I do like Cassius too.

Thank you all, more positive response than I was expecting. Will probably do as you say, user and see which suits him more, though I might have been swayed if there had been a particularly strong response

Cassius by miles! I've contemplated the name Cassia for my girl smile

Buntysoven Sat 17-Feb-18 22:49:00

Love Cassius. Such a cool name sake too...

Love Cassius and especially Cass (damn you Rooneys!)

Snowysky20009 Sun 18-Feb-18 18:11:11

I love Evander!

CPtart Sun 18-Feb-18 18:19:11

Evan, dislike Evander. Would avoid Cass due to the Rooney link!

helpmum2003 Sun 18-Feb-18 18:21:53

Evander/Evan by a long way. Never heard of Evander but like it!

Personally I would've avoided Cassius anyway due to boxing link but the Rooney issue makes it a definite no.
