Re: No one is going to like his name.

I love it, but I love it even more for the meaning.

Re: No one is going to like his name.

This is why we typically don't share names until the baby arrives. People are much less likely to criticize your name choice when it already belongs to the baby.

I like Enoch

I love that name! Could be because I grew up around Baltimore and Enoch Pratt was so influential in our history. Such an interesting man.

I have seen the name written but never heard aloud - how do you pronounce it? ee-knock? ee-nick? (That's how I say it in my head)

I like uncommon names

The main character on Boardwalk Empire has this name too.
This is the first thing that comes to my mind....and he's not too nice. I'd always be worried people would think I named my kid after the HBO show.

ETA: I do like the name though.

I love Enoch. My dh's middle name is Se. His mom says they stand for Seth and Enoch, but she didn't want to give him two middle names.

I wanted to use them both for my twin boys, but dh vetoed them. He doesn't like either one.

Love that name. Can I steal it when we have a boy?
