    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, Faye, Judah, Thea, Marina, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Ruby Louise, Archer, Violet, Gabriel, Persephone, Dov, Louisa

    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.
