Which would you choose for brothers and why?

Noah H#### and Dylan Thomas
Noah H#### and Jacob

Or..... Something else? Feel free to suggest. Popularity is not something that concerns me, I use a name based on how much I like it.

I know Dylan Thomas is a poet but I really like how both names sound together. Unsure on middle name for Jacob.

Dylan, to avoid having two biblical names.

I adore both Dylan and Jacob! Hard to chose. I’ll pick Dylan but I know a little Jacob and he’s adorable, his mum calls him Jay sometimes which I adore but all his friends call him by his full name

We almost chose Dylan Thomas for our DS but felt the whole welsh poet thing would overshadow it and people would ask if we were welsh (we aren't!) Opted for Finley Thomas instead.

I know of a couple who named their children Noah and Evan (boys) ... It sounds quite pleasant. Both lovely boys, too

Jacob as well might be a bit too bibley , but if that's your favourite I don't think it's a deal breaker.

Dylan goes nicely.

Also:

Ethan
Isaac (also bibley!)
Finn

I like suggestions of Noah and Will, Noah and Finn. I like Jacob best out of your options. I'd put Thomas first though as another option - Noah and Thomas.

Noah and
Leo
Harry
Angus
Jack
Rufus

Astronica Unfortunately cant use Thomas as a first name. And Will doesnt go with the surname either.

Thank you everyone so far!
I think I'm swaying more to Dylan Thomas because the meaning of Jacob isn't the best and I tend to look at meanings.
Someone suggested Dylan Jacob but not sure it flows as nicely as Dylan Thomas. It feels a bit clunky.
