I don't think that's too bad at all, and Noah is lovely

Phoenix Thu 09-Jul-09 20:02:38

Congratulations Natty

My new ds (c section tomorrow) is going to be Noah so obviously i love it

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 09-Jul-09 20:04:34

I like Noah but then I also like William

<<not very helpful emoticon>>

Angelsus Thu 09-Jul-09 20:07:43

Noah William O'Dwyer sounds good!

TheNatty Thu 09-Jul-09 20:09:07

i love the name noah, but when you say noah o'dwyer its a bit of a tongue twister and i have a slight speech impediment anyway!

never had so much trouble, the other two were named by 20 weeks!

loler Thu 09-Jul-09 20:09:09

I crossed posts with you - I like Noah too. I can see what you mean about saying it all together out loud. My ds2 ended up being a bit like this because it was the only name we could agree on.

If you like Noah it doesn't matter too much but I think you really have to like it.

Tillyscoutsmum Thu 09-Jul-09 20:15:22

Ok - similar (imho) names to Noah:-

Seth
Saul
Adam
Dominic
Gabriel
Joel
Tobias (too close to Thomas perhaps ?)

Nathaniel
Benjamin
Jonah

Noah is lovely.
