Ezra

I like Augustus nn Gus, but I'm not thrilled about August. (Auggie).
Is he düe in August?.
Don't like Linus.
To end on a positive Ezra is gorgeous.

Love Linus smile

Love Linus and August! Great strong classic names that aren't too popular.

Ezra sounds a little girly to my ears

ChocolateCrunch Mon 19-Feb-18 13:53:50

I like Linus best, with Ezra second. Prefer Augustus (Gus) to August.

glitterbiscuits Mon 19-Feb-18 13:54:55

I’m with everyone else. Augustus is better.

I quite like all three names

All good nanes but August “Augie” is my favourite by a mile!

NameChangeDestroyer Mon 19-Feb-18 14:16:48

Linus unless you intend to use Gus for August

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 19-Feb-18 17:53:13

Linus.

Catinthebath Mon 19-Feb-18 17:54:03

Love Ezra but then both me and my son have OT names too

Try hard

pipilangstrumpf Mon 19-Feb-18 18:00:16

Why would you not try hard to find a great name for your child confused?

I love August and Linus!

shetookshelter Mon 19-Feb-18 18:04:27

I love Ezra.

Hate Linus.

Like August but am put off that it is a month and I find that weird, so I'd prefer Augustus.

bridgetreilly Mon 19-Feb-18 18:48:09

Augie sounds awful to me. Gus is a great name.

KatnissK Mon 19-Feb-18 19:07:49

I like August and Ezra (I do know a few baby Ezras, not sure if it is becoming more popular?). Don't like Linus.

17caterpillars1mouse Tue 20-Feb-18 13:17:29

See I prefer August as I thought Augustus would be seen as too pretentious or 'try-hard' is this not the case?

DuggeeHugs Tue 20-Feb-18 13:25:25

Linus - awesome name smile

TulipsInABlueVase Tue 20-Feb-18 15:10:43

Like August but Auggie is awful (sounds like something else).

Ezra is okay but the a ending is feminine.

Buntysoven Wed 21-Feb-18 23:02:50

Linus makes me think of sinus and Snoopy. August not my style and LOVE Ezra. Your baby though OP

Gates Wed 21-Feb-18 23:35:08

Ezra

MikeUniformMike Wed 21-Feb-18 23:35:31

Augustus is fine. Augustine is fine but twatty people will mistake it for a girl's name. August isn't good and has two pronunciations. Aug-UST and AUG-ust.
Gus is fine, Augie is wrong.
Ezra is not very nice, and will be Ez. It's probably zipping up the name charts.
Linus is great.

DramaAlpaca Thu 22-Feb-18 00:59:07

Linus is the least worst. I'm not a fan but it's heaps better than the other two.

masktaster Thu 22-Feb-18 05:12:43

There might be a mini spike of Auggies this year, as it's the name of the protagonist in "Wonder", the film of which is being released soon/released (I lose track). Might not, but worth knowing if you don't want to field a lifetime of "is he named after..." from people who might remember.

None quite to my taste, but probably like August best despite the above.

pipilangstrumpf Thu 22-Feb-18 08:07:15

Augustine is the feminine version of Augustin.

I like Augustus best.

Joeybee Fri 23-Feb-18 05:27:47

OMG Linus.....I love that name. It's so underused. However it's a pretty classic, strong name. Also it's not too common, but not so uncommon to be strange. Everyone would know how to spell and pronounce it too.

Ezra sounds too feminine to me, and is trendy...I think it'll just suddenly become very dated.

August is nice...prefer Augustus though, which you could still get Auggie from.
