Re: Which name do you like better?

I don't really like either combo. The names separately are fine, but together is too much as they are both 3 syllables that begin with J. Too much of a mouthful. However, I don't often call my kids by their full name, so I'd just go with the first name I prefer. For me it'd be Jonathan.

I like both names. Josiah is probably going to be less common, but I still prefer Jonathan. Go with what you like.

Re: Which name do you like better?

Thanks ladies

I really prefer the name Josiah. Actually it's my favorite boys name. But DH HATES HATES HATES it. So does the rest of my family. Even if I won the batter and got Josiah Jonathan I would end up calling him JJ or Josh or something like that because no one else would ever want to use his whole name.

And another problem with either combo is that our last name is a 10 letter, 3 syllable, very polish sounding name. So all together we would end up with this huge 9 syllable name. But then with our last name, any full name combo would be long.

Honestly, what I would really like would be Josiah Thomas or Josiah Tyler. DH really likes Jonathan though. I know there's no way I can convince him to go with Josiah as a first name at all...but I MIGHT get him to go Jonathan Josiah. I don't like Thomas or Tyler as a first name.

Names are such a huge pain in the rear for us.

I love the name Josiah, but don't think either combination flows well.

I <3 the name Josiah, if you are using both names I think Jonathan Josiah sounds better since Jonathan is longer to pronounce.
