    Jude is Biblical, classic and cool. Jobe is a misspelling of the Biblical name Job so I don't like it. I dislike changing spellings of long-established names just to get the correct pronunciation. I think Jude would be much more usable in the real world than Job/Jobe.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I like Jude better because when I saw Jobe I sat here trying to figure out how it's pronounced and that's never a good thing to me!

    I like both names, and agree they are too similar for brothers. they're in the Jonah, Jonas, Jove family of names, all of which I love.

    My question is, why would you add an "e" to "Job"? You may have an uneducated few who pronounce Job as "jobb" --but you'd also have people who pronounce "Jobe" like "Joe-bee." six of one, half a dozen of the other, so why not just spell it correctly?

    Girl: Lulu, Eden
    Boy: Leo, Wallace, Grady

    I was just going to say about the poop thing. I think it's more of a Scottish word but I might also be used in England and for that reason I don't really like Jobe. Jude is much nicer.

    I love them evenly; which is no help to you, is it? And sadly, they are to close for siblings : ( Maybe you could get away with it with twins : )
