Which would you choose for brothers and why?

Noah H#### and Dylan Thomas
Noah H#### and Jacob

Or..... Something else? Feel free to suggest. Popularity is not something that concerns me, I use a name based on how much I like it.

I know Dylan Thomas is a poet but I really like how both names sound together. Unsure on middle name for Jacob.

I adore both Dylan and Jacob! Hard to chose. I’ll pick Dylan but I know a little Jacob and he’s adorable, his mum calls him Jay sometimes which I adore but all his friends call him by his full name

Dylan, to avoid having two biblical names.

We almost chose Dylan Thomas for our DS but felt the whole welsh poet thing would overshadow it and people would ask if we were welsh (we aren't!) Opted for Finley Thomas instead.

We defo like Dylan though and may use it next time if we have another boy!

I know of a couple who named their children Noah and Evan (boys) ... It sounds quite pleasant. Both lovely boys, too

Jacob as well might be a bit too bibley , but if that's your favourite I don't think it's a deal breaker.

Dylan goes nicely.


Isaac (also bibley!)

I prefer Jacob

Actually, Dylan Jacob. Definitely not Dylan Thomas.

Noah and Will.

I like suggestions of Noah and Will, Noah and Finn. I like Jacob best out of your options. I'd put Thomas first though as another option - Noah and Thomas.

I like Dylan Thomas personally, I think Noah and Dylan go well together and that Dylan and Thomas is a nice combination

Astronica Unfortunately cant use Thomas as a first name. And Will doesnt go with the surname either.

Not Jacob - I can only think of Rees-Mogg.

Prefer Jacob with Noah...
Love Jacob Aaron.

Noah and Ezra
Noah and Henry
Noah and Leo
Noah and Samuel
Noah and Oliver

Not really keen on Dylan or Jacob, but I think Jacob fits well with Noah.

Thank you everyone so far!
I think I'm swaying more to Dylan Thomas because the meaning of Jacob isn't the best and I tend to look at meanings.
Someone suggested Dylan Jacob but not sure it flows as nicely as Dylan Thomas. It feels a bit clunky.
