If I have a boy thinking Nathan? Any views?

Its a nice name, though I do prefer Nathaniel. Adore the nickname Nate

Yes from me. It's an underused classic.

I like it

thatsjustmyface Tue 22-May-18 10:00:56

Also love Nate. Nathan's a great name.

One of my favourites.

Prefer Nathaniel myself.

I like it. Friends have one and it really suits him.

MyFamilyAndOtherAnimals1 Tue 22-May-18 11:34:27

Love it!

My ex-husband is Nathan, he’s a cool, good looking guy (we’re still friends), and I have good connotations.

I think Nathaniel is a bit ‘couldn’t decide’ and it’s pretentious, but it’s not offensive. I might have known a complete knob called Nathaniel...

We have a Nathan so I obviously love it 😁 He’s only 22mo but he gets called Nate, Nathy and Natey (all by me haha)

lornathewizzard Tue 22-May-18 12:06:16

I also didn’t really like Nathaniel, too posh sounding for me

DramaAlpaca Tue 22-May-18 12:07:05

Very nice.

I have a 13 year old Nathan. I still love the name and the child! It's one of those names that's not too popular, he was the only nathan in his primary school and he one of only 2 in his year at high school!

No to Nathaniel as it's a bit like Sebastian - people think it's posh but it's a bit less classy than you think.
I know a really nice chap called Nathan and so like the name for him, but I think it's a bit downmarket.

It's a nice name.

ellalouise90 Tue 22-May-18 18:22:20

I really like it and really love Nate for short!

bridgetreilly Tue 22-May-18 21:21:22

I prefer Jonathan, but it's fine.

CPtart Tue 22-May-18 21:39:12

Nathan in its entirety is ok, my nephew's name. Nate is dreadful.

Jonathan
Ethan
Dathan

It’s a nice name.

I do like it, but where I come from in Essex it would get shortened to Nafe.
