Rory
Rowan
Laurence (nn Laurie)
Jude

We are really struggling to find a nice boys name we both agree on. Not too common, but not out there either.

Thanks :-)

I like them all.

Rowan is also used as a girl's name but I don't think it's too girly.

Love them all except Laurence. I think it's horrible!

Jude is my favourite

I don't like Laurence but love the others smile

I love them all except Rory. I love Laurence with Laurie or Larry as nn.

Laurence is not for me, but all the rest are lovely.

I only like Jude.

I'm not keen in the others but would say that, with the exception of Rory, you seem to have a preference for gender neutral names. On this theme I prefer Alex or Jesse.

Rory and Laurence both good. The other two are girl's names imo.

I have a Laurie so am biased but always get compliments about his name!!

I also like your other choices and had them all on my list for DS too smile

I like them all, but Rory is the nicest (slightly biased as I have a 5 week old Rory)

I like Rory best with Laurence a close second, I think Rowan is more a girl's name, and I'm not keen on Jude.

Love all of them but I on't like how popular Jude's become.

Still18atheart Sun 10-Mar-13 11:18:16

Like them all especially Rory and Laurence

Don't like Rory personally, but love all of the others. DD1 would have been Laurence and dd2 would have been Rowan if they were boys!

Thanks. It's going to be a difficult decision....

BeeBopDingALing Sun 10-Mar-13 20:31:09

Definitely Jude, don't like the others.

MustafaCake Sun 10-Mar-13 20:32:51

I only like Jude I'm afraid.

Artichook Sun 10-Mar-13 20:34:33

I like them all but my fav is Laurie, then Jude.

Coconutty Sun 10-Mar-13 20:34:42

Sorry but not keen on any of them. Jude is dire, no idea why it has exploded in popularity. It reminds me of Judas.

Rowan would be my pick if I had to choose one. Prefer Roan though.

Really like them all except for Rory.

SilverBirdie Sun 10-Mar-13 21:11:44

Jude and Rowan are both fab! Not keen on Rory unless you're Scottish, then I think it sounds lovely grin

determinedma Sun 10-Mar-13 21:13:02

Love Laurence - not Laurie

Littlecherublegs Sun 10-Mar-13 22:56:46

Rory and Rowan are ok; Jude I see more as a girls name; dont like Lawrence.

How about:
Owen
Riley
Ethan
Aidan
Quinn
Caleb
Gabriel
Elijah
Drew
Micah
Cole
