And would it be a bit much with a sibling with another old biblical name (can't get much older than Adam, I guess).

I love Jonah. I can't use it sadly but it would be top of my list otherwise.
I think it goes fine with Adam. I don't really think of Adam as a biblical name as such (even though it is).

I love it OP i wouldnt worry about the biblical thing. My DS is Micah Joseph, both biblical names.
Posted 27 December 2012 - 04:46 PM
I love it and think it is very much under used. I know a family with a Jonah, Noah and Joshua. I don't think it is too much to use two biblical names, after all there is so very many names in the bible.

A lovely name. I actually prefer a full biblical set of sibling names, to one or two biblical and the rest non biblical.
When I was a child Jonah did tend to mean bad luck, but I don't think this is such a common thing to think these days. I'm just putting it here, as it may be something you like to consider.
IMO Adam and Jonah sound great together.

Lovely biblical name. My friend has a boy a little altered from that...she calls him Jonas...just an idea.

I love it. I know the sweetest little boy names Jonah. It was on our list for DS but DH wasn't 100% convinced.
Posted 27 December 2012 - 05:12 PM
Wow! I'm really pleased with the reception so far. I wasn't sure if it was a little bit obscure to be matching with Adam- or is it rising in the ranks along with Noah and Joshua?- or whether it was just too much Bible
I also love the meaning of both names. Adam means man, red earth. Jonah means peace, dove.

I love it . I've loved it ever since I saw Sleepless in Seattle (the young son was called Jonah).

I think Jonah and Adam go together great.
Are you pregnant again?!?!?!
Posted 27 December 2012 - 06:32 PM
Nope but I am incredibly clucky and this hypothesizing is keeping my cluckiness occupied. For now

Love it! Jonah was our chosen boyname, but we had a little girl two weeks ago (definitely our last child).
It goes well with Adam.
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:15 PM
I have a Jonah. I still adore this name.
He gets Jonah, Joe, Joe-Boy...
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:27 PM
I really like it too. It's on our list. My only issue is that I don't really like Joe as a nickname.
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:33 PM
I think the biblical aspect is fine. I don't particularly like the name I don't think it's as nice as Adam.
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:44 PM
I quite like Jonah and I quite like Adam, but for me, I couldn't use two "obviously" (to me) biblical names because I am not religious. but that's surely just my thang.
Great names, OP. I too am clucky and can't stop conjuring up lovely sibsets...
Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:46 PM
I absolutely love the name Jonah. It's not a popular name where I live, I only know one littlw boy called Jonah who is super cute!
I think it goes great with Adam
Posted 28 December 2012 - 06:06 AM
I love Jonah and the meaning is lovely, first time I've heard it.
Both it and Adam are strong, masculine names so I think they work well together.
Posted 28 December 2012 - 08:03 AM
I really like it. It was on my list when I had DS but DH vetoed it due to silly Summer Heights High connotation. I tried to convince him that by the time a Jonah got to 10 or so no one would remember that show at all.
Posted 28 December 2012 - 08:08 AM
I would already have a son called Jonah if I didn't marry a man with a 5 letter surname starting with the same few letters!! I love it and have since I was a kid and saw Sleepless in Seattle for the first time!! It's just a shame I can't use this one.
I love biblical names but don't have a religious bone in my body.My DS1's middle name is Adam!!
