We know we're havin a boy and for months our only name was Charlie but we've now gone off that and have a few other options. Opinions please?

Lucas
Joseph
Ethan
Sam/Samuel

BF doesn't really like Sam but said I can have it if I really want it but think I'd prefer a name we both love.

Middle name is defo Adam after our friend who died a few months ago, I like Ethan but think Ethan Adam is a bit of a mouthful.

Love joseph... particularly when shortened to Joe. Like Sam/Samuel but not keen on the others... sorry.

My first thoughts were Joseph and Sam/ Samuel but since you said Sam not really an option (or wouldn't be for me if DH not keen) I really love Sam (sorry!). Would have been my top choice for a boy but our surname begins with S so not great.

Others are OK but I think that is the acid test for me. If I'm told I can't use the name do I then REALLY want it.

Well BF doesn't actually have a prob with the name Sam/Samuel but his cousin is called Sam and he's very very camp so he seems to just associate the name with camp queens lol. He has said if it wasn't for that he would think it's a lovely name. I'm sure that it wouldnt take long for him to just associate it with his gorgeous little boy tho.

Not so keen on Sam/uel, but love the others smile

My favourite is Sam too so I think you should persuade him

But if not then another vote for Joseph

fizzpops Sat 06-Jun-09 22:37:27

I've known more than one person with the same name and it seems like a different name for each othem iykwim, so I am sure you are right.

xx... I think every name can be associated with a person/character on tv/pet etc who's traits we may not be fond of.
There's a not so nice character on tv who has the same name as ds and when we announced his name many people said the characters name.

7 yrs on it's his name, and boy does it suit him. Glad we stuck to what we liked.

Joseph is one of my favourite names. The others are fine too but imo Joseph outshines them by some way.

barnsleybelle Sat 06-Jun-09 23:05:48

scrummy... Just seen on another thread that you are pg.. Congrats. You having Joseph if it's a boy then?!

Tiredmumno1 Sat 06-Jun-09 23:17:26

Hows bout jake andrew

KathyBrown Sat 06-Jun-09 23:18:23

How about Adam as a first name ?

ScummyMummy Sat 06-Jun-09 23:20:11

Thanks Barnsley. Nope. I already have a v lovely (imo) Joseph, so will have to think of another good name (easier said than done- sigh!).

barnsleybelle Sat 06-Jun-09 23:26:52

Joseph is hard to trump i think! I wanted it for ds but dh desperately wanted James after his grandad as a middle name and didn't like the JJ thing. Wouldn't have bothered me tbh, but eh, you both have to be happy!

xxhunnyxx Sat 06-Jun-09 23:39:45

Don't really like Jake, my ex said that if we ever had a son he wanted it to be called Jake so it wouldn't seem right. Middle name is defo Adam (non-negotiable).

We have thought about Adam as a first name but I think it's nice to have a name that's just his, I don't want him to be living in the shadow of somebody else (IYKWIM) and we've also got another close friend called Adam.

joseph adam or lucas adam is best
samuel adam doesn't go

I like Charlie best

yama Sun 07-Jun-09 08:59:08

Joseph for me as well.

I like the others but love Joseph.

burningupinspeed Sun 07-Jun-09 09:01:01

I love Joseph, Ethan and Sam but not keen on Lucas.

Wilts Sun 07-Jun-09 09:02:53

I am married to a Samuel, it is a lovely name wink.

I think that from the list Joseph sounds best with Adam.

MrsMattie Sun 07-Jun-09 13:14:28

Samuel for me by a whisker. Joseph also good. Sam and Joe are fab. Solid and suit all ages/stages of life.

Ethan and Lucas are cringey.

sockmonster Sun 07-Jun-09 14:25:08

Samuel/Joseph. Joseph Adam sounds nice.

nappyaddict Sun 07-Jun-09 16:00:32

My favourite is Lucas. It's a bit less popular than the others.

jellybeans Sun 07-Jun-09 17:12:54

I love them all If pushed would choose Joseph or Lucas, prob Lucas as more unusual and prefer nn Luke to Joe. Sam abit popular and not as keen on unisex names. Ethan nice but very popular.

MaggieBee Sun 07-Jun-09 18:13:53

Like them all. Lucas my fave but very popular. Marcus Adam sounds good too.
