Gabriel is pleasant. I like most G's though, Gideon, Gareth, Gilead, even Gavin...

Honestly, I know its more popular, but I prefer Aidan to Edan. Or Alan? Or just Dan.

Luke is nice. I guess there's a reason you can't use it up front?

Not really a fan of Edan.

Quite like Gabriel.

What style are you looking for ??  What are your other kids' names ??

I do like Luke.

How about:

William / Will / Liam
George
Harry / Harrison / Henry
Nate / Nathaniel
Hunter / Archer
Levi
James
Edward
Charles
Rafferty
Theo
Leo
Felix
Frederick / Freddie
Hendrix

Sorry, not a fan of Edan or Gabriel - though prefer Gabriel if had to choose. I agree with pps - Is Aidan a possibilty, or Luke?

I really love Gabriel!

I don't like Edan as much and wouldn't know how to pronounce it. Is it kind of like 'ee' and then 'dan' as in Daniel?

I think Eden is better, but Aidan would be better still, IMO.

Love Gabriel

After three boys, when fourth was due (sex unknown) we tossed up Gabriel and Raphael - Rafe for short.  wub.gif
In the end we were leaning toward Raphael, as we preferred Rafe to Gabe.

Ended up moot - had a girl

I like both names and would keep the spelling Edan for a boy. Good Celtic name.   Gabriel Luke suffers from the clash of the 'ls'.   The combo of Edan Luke works better.

Not a fan of either, they both sound a bit feminine for my liking.

Thanks Ladies, i appreciate the feedback. We don't really have a naming style, we are finding that we are ruling out a lot of names due to friends children having those names.  

la di dah - i love Aiden but we have friends with a son called that and am not sure about using it. Can't use Luke as a FN as it is after my angel baby..

Freddie'sMum - there are some names i love in your suggestions but alot are already used...ie nephews, friends children. We both loved Hunter but have used that as our youngests middle name...hmmm wish i could still use it  unsure.gif

Luckily we still have a couple of months to try and figure something out. Thanks again everyone  biggrin.gif

Not a huge fan of either but would pick Gabriel.  NN Gabe is nice, American sounding but still nice, kinda cool sounding!

With regards to friends names, dont always rule it out.  If the child is much older or you dont see them a lot, you could always talk to the mum.  One of BF's oldest son has a name I was considering for DS (I didnt end up using it).  i asked her opinion and she was fine, there was going to be 11yrs difference in the kids so she wasnt remotely fussed and neither was I.  So you could always discuss it with the parents.

Gabriel is ok but I'm not overly keen on it.
