Which do you prefer for a boy and why?

Landon sound's like a spelling mistake or a cockney saying 'London'. Sorry. Jacob's nice though.

Jacob's ok but increasingly popular - I know of several.
Landon is pretty awful tbh. I do know a 7yo Brandon though...

MrsMerryHenry Mon 08-Jun-09 00:04:36

Are you joking about Landon?

Jacob is lovely.

Thumbwiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch! Long time!

knickers0nmahead Mon 08-Jun-09 00:04:39

none. Landon is horrible and jacob, although nice, is getting popular.

Yay! Mrs MH - have you seen the thread about the chocolate buttons? A whole bag in one sitting, and the giant ones at that shock - not me, I hasten to grin

(But I may be biased!)
My DS1 is the only Jacob we know around here.

grin missed that one but have been online window-shopping for chocolate! Purse and waistline still intact. grin

Landon! I like it. But if you knew my 3 DC's names, you'd know I have no freedom of speech.

But seriously, Landon's great.

thumbwitch Mon 08-Jun-09 00:20:21

ooh, that's a good way to do it - I have just finished a bar of G&B milk and almond again - it's getting beyond a joke! grin

Have you tried the dark choc n orange fairtrade bars from co-op?

<<dies just thinking about it>>

No opinion really, but just had to share that my 6-year-old niece has THREE Landons in her class at school! Too funny!
Not to mention Caden, Jaden, Hayden and Braiden. You couldn't make it up!

Landon reminds me of Thursday Next's husband in the Jasper Fforde novels - Landon Parke-Laine

Landon reminds me of a Stephen King character, and Jacob is becoming very popular indeed.

Jacob - very popular indeed, but lovely.
Is Landon not the main character fron the Da Vinci code books? may make it a bit 'of the moment' now the other book has been made into a film. either way i am noy a fan of Landon!

tummytickler Mon 08-Jun-09 10:55:34

Oh the Da Vinci Code could explain why there are 3 6 year oldsa called Landon in shubiedoos niece's class!

mopsyflopsy Mon 08-Jun-09 10:58:13

Not that keen on either, really.

Jacob quite popular and don't like Jake...

Landon is just not my style...

amazonianwoman Mon 08-Jun-09 11:01:12

Not keen on Landon, but love Jacob/Jake (DS's name grin) Only know one other Jacob so not that popular here, but wouldn't care if it was (was my grandad's name)

BlueChampagne Mon 08-Jun-09 12:56:00

Jasper Fforde fan?

MrsMattie Mon 08-Jun-09 15:19:02


MrsMerryHenry Mon 08-Jun-09 16:38:43

Of course, Jasper Fforde!

I was thinking the OP was a Da Vinci Code fan but that's Langdon, isn't it?
