    Jacob or Thomas???

    Just looking for your advice with our boys names list, we always find boys names the hardest.

    Our favourites at the moment are Jacob Daniel and Thomas Arthur (or mn Edward)

    We are in Aus so Thomas is top 10 here whereas Jacob is less popular. We usually try to avoid really popular names but then our boys names discussions go round is circles as hubby is not very adventurous with names...

    Which do you like better? We’re open other suggestions too! TIA

    Names on my mind:
    Ada, Alice, Aurora, Callista, Cecilia, Claire, Colette, Edith, Elisabeth, Emilia, Estelle, Florence, Georgia, Genevieve, Harriet, Lillian, Mae, Madeleine, Margot, Marlowe, Sylvie, Quinn, Theresa, Winifred.
    Amos, Arthur, Benjamin, Bryce, Calvin, Darcy, Edward, Elias, Everett, Evander, Ezra, Finley, Francis, Frederic, Henry, Hugo, James, Joseph, Julian, Lawrence, Leonardo, Miles, Oliver, Raphael, Rory, Simon, Sebastian, Theo, Thomas, Tobias.

    Hi there.

    I like both names about equally, but do usually tend to choose less common. I think that Jacob is more common here in the U.S. Both names have natural nns that may be hard to avoid. Do you like Tom or Tommy? If not, I wouldn't go w/Thomas. Do you like Jake? If not, I wouldn't go w/Jacob. I personally like Jake & Jaco a lot!

    Hope this helps.

    I like Thomas better than jacob. It’s so such a strong sturdy name. I also prefer Arthur over Edward

    I like both Jacob and Thomas, I think I prefer Thomas slightly, because I dislike the nickname Jake, which every Jacob I know goes by. I prefer Thomas Arthur to Thomas Edward

    I actually like them both. I'd personally narrow it down based on which name sounds the best with your surname.

    Thank you for your comments!

    I love Arthur, like Daniel it’s a family name and I’d use it as a first name if I could. Our surname starts with W so I didn’t feel like it worked as a mn for Jacob... initials would spell JAW
    I still can’t decide what I prefer, Thomas is very popular here, I probably slightly prefer Jacob over Thomas, but I prefer Tom over Jake....
