Well, it's up to you isn't it?

If it was me, I'd go for Rhys. It's much nicer than Mason, which is a surname & not nice as a first name.

Neither, Mason and Reece are both naughty boys names.

Rhys is alright if you’re welsh, I guess.

I like Mason, but there's also Macsen (it's Welsh like Rhys) if you don't mind the suggestion

If the boy’s not Welsh, I wouldn’t call him Rhys.

But then, Welsh or not, I wouldn’t call him Mason either.

Sorry. Not much help Blush

Rhys if you’re Welsh. Neither of you’re not.

Not Mason, because it's a job. Or a surname.

Rhys is nice.

What are you hoping for with those names? What sort of son do see having those names. I’m intrigued as a) they are both naughty both names and b) Rhys is quite an old name whilst Mason is a newer one.

Mason is nice.

Rhys genuinely makes me cringe every tine i see it. Which is a lot. Like at least spell it Reese. Then it's the name of Malcolm in the middles naught brother xD

Mason is a surname and a bit chavvy IMO. Rhys is lovely if you’re Welsh.

Never really liked Mason but don't know why.
Rhys is nice.

Depends on what your surname is. A surname beginning with S wouldn't go well with Rhys - something like Rhys Simpson would roll into 'Reesimpson'.

If the surname isn't an issue I prefer Rhys.

Congratulations on the birth of your son! Is he your first child? If not, what are his siblings called?

I like both names - I picture a little boy with curly blonde hair when I think of the name Mason, and Rhys is the name of one of my cousins children - a strapping rugby playing lad who is the life and soul of the party.

If you're unsure why not call him by each name for a few days and see which feels more natural.

Rhys is a fine Welsh name and Mason is a job. Rhys is the only sane choice.
