Surname has three syllables - with lots of S and L sounds so restricts my choices a bit (nothing ending with S or X)

So far we have...


Which do you rate - and which do you hate...?

Henry is nice

meh Isaac/Levi and Elijah

They are all lovely names. Have faith in your son to make whatever name you give him beautiful.

Love, love , love Hugo (wanted it for ds2 but wasn't allowed)

Don't like George, Isaac, Elijah, Henry.

Quite like Levi.

Ambivalent towards Jack!!

Tommy Wed 24-Jun-09 23:07:56

only like the old testament ones

tigana Wed 24-Jun-09 23:21:58

think elijah maybe bit of a mouthful with 3 syllable surname? Also..bit hobbity...?
issac has s sound...will it be too much with the ss's in surname too?

quite like george, hugo, jack and henry. Not my sort of names iykwim, but ok.

levi or eli

Thanks all of you - good points tigana. No clear favourites emerging yet though, you're all pretty split. Bit like us really. DH likes the old testament ones, I like the rest. Jack is just in there - cos it goes and it's easy. Yes those other OT ones are nice dizzy - like Jonah better out of the two, but I don't love them iykwim.

Keep going - be as cutting as you can and perhaps we can whittle these down!

I like Isaac (DS has a similar name) and Henry. But then I've got a bit of a Tudor obsession so that may influence it!

Bucharest Thu 25-Jun-09 07:40:26

Elijah- love love love
George- hate hate hate
Isaac- s'OK
Jack- yawn
Levi- bit out there....I can see Boden wearers using it, but can also hear it being shrieked in Asda (and pronounced wrong)
Henry- bit boringly posh
Hugo- too posh. He'll be forced to wear a Barber jacket.

piscesmoon Thu 25-Jun-09 07:51:16

George, Jack and Henry-hate the rest-particularly Elijah and Levi.

brimfull Thu 25-Jun-09 08:15:38

slate-bit dull I'm afraid


barnsleybelle Thu 25-Jun-09 08:29:29

Kayzr Thu 25-Jun-09 08:31:58

loobylolly Thu 25-Jun-09 08:43:52

Love Hugo and Elijah.

Isaac and Levi OK, nothing special.

George, Jack, Henry dull dull dull.

How about Noah or Jake?

MamaLazarou Thu 25-Jun-09 09:01:30

I LOVE them all, apart from Jack (too common, unimaginative and is just a nickname anyway) and Hugo (laughably posh).

Issy123 Thu 25-Jun-09 09:14:28

Love the names Henry and George.

I like Issac, Jack and Levi

I really don't like Hugo and not keen on Elijah.

rusmum Thu 25-Jun-09 09:43:17

Elijah - my half brothers name, I love it (love Eli for short also)
George - Asda, shop there too much so no
Isaac - Love it
Jack - and the Beanstalk, too dull for me
Levi - my DP's name, so a bit biased (contemplating having a Levi Jnr if we ever have a boy)
Henry - the 8th, too old fashioned
Hugo - too posh for me, makes me think of Hugo Boss as well.
