Hi,

Can you please give your opinion. And preference on the following names for a boy.

They will have a brother called Luca, and their surname will be Jones.

Finn Jones or Milo Jones ?

We are very torn between the two names, and would appreciate any feedback.

Thank you

Finn is half a name.

Milo, definitely.

Finn Jones is making me think 'fanjo'

With a one-syllable surname I think you need a longer first name. So Milo.

I prefer Finn, but with your surname and sibling Luca, Milo is the best choice.

To me Milo is a dogs name. Finn is very nice

Thank you. My main concern with Milo is the dog's name reference.

Both great names but Milo is better with the surname and with brother Luca.

Milo is a dogs name. And Finn is extremely popular (and presumably short for Finley?)

It is short for Finley, but has become a name in it's own right. Personally I prefer Finn to Finley. My wife prefers Finley to Finn!

Overall, she prefers Milo though.

I'm just trying to see whether I can get past the dog comparisons or not.

Milo is better alongside Luca.

Milo.

Also sorry to do this but another suggestion... Micah (my-cah).. I have a son Micah and if my current pregnancy is a boy they will be called Luca 😊

A Finn is a person from Finland!

Milo is a chocolate drink.

If I had to choose, probably Milo or Mylo

I don’t know if you come on this board often @dj1905 but people always says “that’s a dogs name” about so many names. I’d personally ignore it. Milo has grown a lot in popularity for little boys. The next generation will no way see the name as a dogs name.
I’ve seen a list of most popular dogs names and the number 1 name was Bella! There’s so many Bella’s at my local school. I really wouldn’t worry about it. There’s so many little boys now being called Rex and Rufus too. Maybe when we were growing up those names might have been a bit controversial but not anymore

Names like Fox and Wolf are being used these days and becoming increasingly popular. It’s completely different to when we were growing up

I think Finley Jones sound great, but if Finley isn't an option then Milo.

Thank you @Flymetothestars

I don't come on this board. I logged in last night for the first time, in a last minute panic to decide upon a name Smile
