name opinions please?

So, we're having a new ds in oh, a week or so. We've gotten indecisive about our name for him! All along we've planned on naming him Noah (mn David possibly?). I've started thinking though about a name I loved in the beginning- Dane. Dh said he's considering it but it sounds nerdy (I think it sounds really strong). Our mn for Dane would be William. WDYT? Honest opinions of both names?

Noah just seems to be becoming SO incredibly popular. Pro's for the name Noah are that it has a better meaning than Dane, and is a biblical name. Our son 2.5 years old has another biblical name that quickly became extremely popular.

I really like the name Dane. Go with what you love mama and don't worry about popularity.
Also, when I search, Dane means honorable and Noah means rest or comfort. I like Dane's meaning better!

Where'd you find that meaning? Seeing that might help change dh's mind! Everywhere I search just comes up with "from Denmark"

Noah is one of the names I'm considering if we have a boy so I'm partial to that name.

Personally, neither name works for me... I can't hear Noah without Ark, or Dane without Great! But that's just me.. Go with what you like.. and think about how much the popularity aspect really means to you.
My SO wants Noah for our next one, so badly!

Re: name opinions please?

I prefer Dane for the stronger sound and being less common. We have a Noah in my family and it always sounds so vowel-y and airy and almost feminine when I say it. I need consonants! So I say Dane.
