lifeisbetteratthebeach · 04/08/2022 23:02

What do you think of the name Moses?
Options currently for a boy are:
Moses Jacob
Hugo Jacob or
Jacob "middle name to be decided"

Which do you prefer and why?
Sibling is N o a h.
Thanks.

Hugo Jacob sounds quite distinguished.
Moses seems like an old man’s name to me — not because it’s dated but just because I visualise an old man with a beard and not a virile young man.

I like Moses because I associate it with Moses Dingle from Emmerdale who is so cute and he has a brother called Noah too.

You can't use Moses if you've already used Noah!

I love Hugo though.

I like Moses, but with sibling Noah it dies rather sound like you are mainlining “My First Book of Bible Stories”.

Hugo Jacob is a cracking combo though.

I love Moses and far prefer it to Jacob (which I find quite dull) and Hugo (which is done to death right now along with al the other -o names). I would assume with a N o a h as a brother you are a very devout family - which I wouldn’t assume with DS1’s name alone.

Moses is a great name! Classic, strong and memorable!

Much nicer than Jacob or Hugo, which are likely to sound dated soon.

I love the name Moses. So much more appealing to me than hooraying Hugo.

Admittedly brothers Noah and Moses is whole lot of Old Testament and but I kinda like it. They sound wise and calm and strong. Noah and Moses would never have silly fallings out over Lego and come home smelling of cider at 15.*

(*they will definitely do those things.)

I really like Moses but definitely wouldn’t use with Noah.

Hugo Jonah ?

Moses Hugo - to get a break from the biblical

Moses is underused

I prefer the Arabic version of Moses, Musa (pronounced Moo-suh). Of your options, I prefer Hugo Jacob
