Can you please give your opinion. And preference on the following names for a boy.

They will have a brother called Luca, and their surname will be Jones.

Finn Jones or Milo Jones ?

We are very torn between the two names, and would appreciate any feedback.

Thank you

Finn is half a name.

Ellmau Sat 11-Jan-20 22:59:59

Milo goes better with Luca.

jannika Sat 11-Jan-20 23:00:09

Milo, definitely.

Finn Jones is making me think 'fanjo'

Isthepopea Sat 11-Jan-20 23:02:15

With a one-syllable surname I think you need a longer first name. So Milo.

TeetotalKoala Sat 11-Jan-20 23:05:33

Milo! Gorgeous name.


DramaAlpaca Sat 11-Jan-20 23:07:07

I prefer Finn, but with your surname and sibling Luca, Milo is the best choice.

Flymetothestars Sat 11-Jan-20 23:07:38

Milo - great choice!!
Love Finn too though you have great taste

To me Milo is a dogs name. Finn is very nice

toomanyleggings Sat 11-Jan-20 23:36:53

Don't like Finn. Milo is better

Kiaa Sat 11-Jan-20 23:46:00

Milo is super cute !

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 06:37:50

Thank you. My main concern with Milo is the dog's name reference.

Both great names but Milo is better with the surname and with brother Luca.

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 07:14:28

Milo is a dogs name. And Finn is extremely popular (and presumably short for Finley?)

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 07:35:52

It is short for Finley, but has become a name in it's own right. Personally I prefer Finn to Finley. My wife prefers Finley to Finn!

Overall, she prefers Milo though.

I'm just trying to see whether I can get past the dog comparisons or not.

Milo is better alongside Luca.

MsChatterbox Sun 12-Jan-20 07:49:06


Also sorry to do this but another suggestion... Micah (my-cah).. I have a son Micah and if my current pregnancy is a boy they will be called Luca 😊

poppydaisys Sun 12-Jan-20 08:51:19

A Finn is a person from Finland!

Milo is a chocolate drink.

If I had to choose, probably Milo or Mylo

I don’t know if you come on this board often @dj1905 but people always says “that’s a dogs name” about so many names. I’d personally ignore it. Milo has grown a lot in popularity for little boys. The next generation will no way see the name as a dogs name.
I’ve seen a list of most popular dogs names and the number 1 name was Bella! There’s so many Bella’s at my local school. I really wouldn’t worry about it. There’s so many little boys now being called Rex and Rufus too. Maybe when we were growing up those names might have been a bit controversial but not anymore

Names like Fox and Wolf are being used these days and becoming increasingly popular. It’s completely different to when we were growing up

tamarisk44 Sun 12-Jan-20 09:28:11

I think Finley Jones sound great, but if Finley isn't an option then Milo.

dj1905 Sun 12-Jan-20 09:31:42

Thank you @Flymetothestars

I don't come on this board. I logged in last night for the first time, in a last minute panic to decide upon a name smile
