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 :-)

All lovely.

Jude wins it for me. Rowan and Rory mean have connotations to the colour red so I think they'd be more suited to child with hair of that hue! Laurence is just my least fave on this list

They're all fine. Rowan is my fave, followed by Laurence (although the latter conjures a hard-to-shake image into my mind of Amy's beau in Little Women). Rory is fab but I think I would expect there to be some kind of Celtic connection. Not quite so keen on Jude. How about Seth?

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

Love Laurence - not Laurie

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

Really like them all except for Rory.

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.

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

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

I only like Jude I'm afraid.

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

Definitely Jude, don't like the others.

TheLastJammyDodger Sun 10-Mar-13 19:56:17

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

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!

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

Like them all especially Rory and Laurence

Southeastdweller Sun 10-Mar-13 11:04:03

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

Allalonenow Sun 10-Mar-13 11:02:33

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.

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

survivingwinter Sun 10-Mar-13 10:51:50

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

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

PrincessOfChina Sun 10-Mar-13 10:21:07

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.

WickWackThurso Sun 10-Mar-13 10:11:43

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

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

I don't like Laurence but love the others smile

FortyFacedFuckers Sun 10-Mar-13 10:05:31

Jude is my favourite

TobyLerone Sun 10-Mar-13 09:58:57

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