Does this work? Two one syllable names together

Normally I would disregard two one syllable names together as I generally find they sound a bit clunky.

However we have been contemplating Jude Fox as a boys name and I find myself thinking maybe this combo would be ok. Surname is three syllables ending in 'son'.

So WDYT does this work or have I just been looking at it too long & have convinced myself that it does??

I think your two names do work well together OP.

Yep, like it (unless your surname is also one syllable). I think that might be too much eg Jude Fox Smith).

Hmm, syllables are not bad, but the only Jude I know is my Aunt...

I like it- but if you have a two syllable surname or more I think it would work best

Fox as a middle name? Really?

Wow.

Sounds great.

No flow for me. One or both of the names needs another syllable.

Judah Fox (NN Jude) flows.

I think that particular combo works ok but most wouldn't.

Jude Fox where Fox is the surname works OK.

But Jude Fox 'Morrison' is too staccato. You almost have to say Judefox as one name to get it to flow.

I think it is a great name and i am not a fan of Fox. Love love Jude and they sound good together.

I think it sounds great! I even like it if Fox was the surname original.gif

I think it works with a 3 syllable surname since he's going to be known as Jude [Surname] the majority of the time anyway, i.e Jude Harrison.

I can't think of any occasions where he'd be named out loud as Jude Fox Harrison, for example. I don't think anyone has used my full name out loud since I was a child in trouble, lol! But even then, it sounds great!

What is wrong with Fox? Plenty of far far worse names out there.

I think it works well! And really like it.

What is right with it? It's an animal, not a name. e

It's a perfectly valid surname, which makes it a perfectly valid first or middle name.

Jude is definitley a boys name. Is your Aunt Judy? Thats the only instance I can recall a woman called Jude.

This is what I was thinking. Pity we only like Jude & not Judah!

Thanks for all your opinions, even the negative ones!  Much appreciated!

Because they both seem to be perfect with the surname I think I would be choosing either Jude or Fox for the first name and then a longer MN to follow.

Alternatively look for a good-flowing 2-syllable additional MN to put between Jude and Fox.


Jude and Fox would be good for brothers.   So you could keep one of the names in reserve wink.gif
