    Gideon vs Gabriel

    Sorry, I forgot the poll. :/

    Gideon or Gabriel? And why?

    I'm just curious to see which name will win the poll.

    Gabriel has been a personal favorite for years, but I would be more likely to use Gideon. It has a strong, rolling, amiable sound, and Gideon is much less common.
    Simon, Eloise/Louise/Louisa, Faye, Judah, Thea, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Dashiell, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Archer, Gabriel, Persephone, Raphael, Dov

    Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...

    I voted Gabriel. I like the sound better. Plus,you can shorten it to Gabe,and I'm big on nicknames.

    I much prefer Gideon.

    Gabriel is fine but I dislike the nn Gabe and with the popularity of girls names like Gabrielle and Brielle and Avril and the like, the sound combination is sounding more feminine. I do think a more modern nn might be Abe.
