What are your thoughts of Jude for a boys name? Thanks

I really like Jude. I automatically think of Jude Law, but that's not a bad thing.

I like it. I have a friend with a boy called Jude and he is lovely. Definitely a great male name.

Um, Jude IS a boy's name.

I know a couple of Judes, great little boys.

I wasn't keen on it, then a friend called her little boy Jude and it really grew on me.

The only thing that would stop me is the association with Jude Law - don't like the arrogant cheating idiot.

The 'hot boy' in the grade above me at school was Jude so naturally it has a lovely connection in my mind. original.gif

I like it, but it has always been a little short for me to use.

I agree with Bel, Romy and Jude is a perfect sibset. I know so many Finns my brain boggles, even though it's a nice enough name.

Jude is on our list, as is Julian w/ nickname "Jude" a la Julian Lennon's accidental nickname.

Big tick from me. Romy and Jude for the sibset!

I think Romy and Jude sounds great.  I know a grown man called Jude, so think of him, not Jude Law.

Although I know there are many boys/men called Jude, my initial reaction is that it's a girls nickname.
So, I'm sure you will get mixed reactions to it - but I think that will be the case whatever you choose.

If you love it, go for it.
