Gah. I thought we had decided on a boys name - Tate - but now i'm not so sure, I like it well enough, but i also really like Seth.

Middle name will be Elijah. Not sure if Seth Elijah is too biblical or not...

Thoughts please...

much prefer Seth. Tate is ok tho.

Seth Elijah sounds better IMO

Another vote for Seth and sounds cool with Elijah. Other sggestions along similar lines- Saul and Eli/Elias

I like both, but on balance prefer Seth.

Yes, Seth Elijah is biblical but not too Biblical. If it were Seth Methuselah Jericho Amen Deemented that would be too biblical!

Have you read Cold Comfort Farm, btw?

I love the name Seth. DP has a 2nd cousin - that we see quite often - named this tho so lucky we only have 2 girls.

Having said that, I think Tate Elijah has more of a ring but how often do middle names get used?

Seth! Love it.

BellaBear Sat 31-Oct-09 19:21:08

Seth! I have one and love the name

Definitely Seth. Lovely name. So is Elijah.

I always think of Tate as a girl's name (don't know if the girl's version is spelt differently though)

'Tate Elijah I want to go home...'sounds like the chorus of that song!Seth is nice as is Tate without the Elijah.

Seth is a brilliant name. If I am ever lucky enough to have a boy, he will be Seth.

I love Seth.

And Heated - my mother had a Cold Comfort Farm name discussion with a friend way back in the 60s and she (the friend) did end up naming her DS- Ruben.

I WISH I could have these names for theoretical DS2, but DP would veto

Yes, Seth reminds me of cold comfort farm, it's an excellent name. Elijah is in my top 10. Reuben is also a possibility.

I've always loved Tate - have you seen the film Little Man Tate? It won't put you off, you'll love it if you like this name

yay to seth nay to tate.why elijah as a mn?why not first?

JANEITEluddite Sat 31-Oct-09 23:20:05

Sorry - I think they are both terrible. But Elijah is nice.

mathanxiety Sat 31-Oct-09 23:52:05

Tate Elijah is too like "Tate & Lyle". Seth Elijah is better.

Thanks for all your imput - much appreciated.

Elijah is DP's input into the name thing - he said i can choose what i'd like DC to be called, as long as he could have Elijah in there somewhere - and that's presuming it's a boy. We have a girls name sorted.

I'm kinda leaning towards Seth a bit more now, i have to admit!

Please don't use Seth if you live in Kent. Unless you're happy with him being Seff to practically everyone!

One of my ds's best friends is called Ethan - ds has to be reminded even now that it's not spelled Efan.........

AttilaTheMeerkat Mon 02-Nov-09 07:13:49

Not Tate; thought of the Tate gallery on reading that initially. Is that really a consideration for a boy's name?.

ScummyMummy Mon 02-Nov-09 07:28:15

Seth is a great name. Not keen on Tate, tbh.
