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 but my DH has said no to naming this baby it, I did try for our DS1 but he hated it sad.gif but DH's name is Johnas so I can see where he is coming from but I would use it in a heartbeat if he let me

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.

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 biggrin.gif

I also love the meaning of both names. Adam means man, red earth. Jonah means peace, dove.

Hmmm.

I love it  original.gif .  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?!?!?!

Nope but I am incredibly clucky and this hypothesizing is keeping my cluckiness occupied. For now original.gif

It's a big yes from me and a lovely fit with Adam.

#14 ~Peaches~

I really like it original.gif

I like Jonas too.

I don't mind that name, it's sweet happy.gif

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.

#18 CCLady

I have a Jonah. I still adore this name.

He gets Jonah, Joe, Joe-Boy...

#19 José

Posted 27 December 2012 - 11:16 PM

I also like it and think it goes well with Adam.

#20 Magnus

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.

#21 Buggylicious

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.

#22 Le-a

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...

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

#24 tres-chic

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.

#25 littleboysmum

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.
