All of those names are lovely, but I particularly like Hugo! I can't think of a longform for Gabe that makes sense other than Gabriel, but I like the previous suggestion of Abe, which is similar to Gabe but has numerous options for a full name (Abram, Abel, Abraham, I think there are even others but they aren't coming to mind for me right now). Joe and Seth are lovely as well, but Hugo is definitely the stand out for me.
My favorite is Joseph, nickname Joe. I think it's so cute!
I like Hugo the best and then Joseph with Eva. I will also suggest Isaac. Good luck and keep us posted!
Hi Thanks for your suggestions so far! Isaac did come up again last night as we like Zac, I prefer Zacharias as a full name.
I think Gabe works fine as a stand alone name. I like it best. My second pick would be Joseph. Good luck!
Love Hugo! The rest are okay, but Hugo is the standout to me. I think it's classic but fresh and a little baby Hugo would be adorable.
My second choice is Seth, as I'm not really a fan of Gabe or Joseph. I would go with the nn Joey for Joseph though, a little more spunk that just plain Joe, imo.
Anyways, congrats and good luck! :)
I vote for Joe!
I have a little Josef and I get nothing but compliments on his name! We have only met one other Joseph around his age.. the rest are old men! (which was the appeal for me) I have met 3 or 4 Rykers, A milliion ADEN names, Tons of Ollies, Jacobs and Ethans but only 1 other Joseph!
Plus to me there is nothing cutes than a little JOe!
Hugo just seems very pretentious to me and I couldn't imagine meeting a Hugo in your average working class area, it just screams posh to me.
Joseph is one of my favourite middle names, I'd never use it as a first name because it's common but it does well with Eva.
Gabe is too nicknamey, and most people would assume his name was Gabriel. However, I actually know a boy named just Gabe so people obviously use it.
Seth is my favourite, it's short and sweet and fits well with Eva.
Eva & Clark
Eva & Tobias
Eva & Louis
Eva & Flynn
Eva & Jasper
Eva & Cassius
Eva & Maxwell
Eva & Damon
Eva & Stefan
I think class line are blurred so much these days that a Hugo wouldn't be too posh in a "working class" area and it sounds great with Eva.
I love the name Gabriel but feel it would be such a shame to only use the nn Gabe but that's just my humble opinion.
Joseph or Joe is great too and although people say it's common, I only know one little boy called Joe in real life.
Seth is just okay so my vote goes to Hugo or Joseph. Good luck!
I adore Hugo. It is so adorable. Eva & Hugo is too cute!
Good luck and CONGRATS Xx
