[name_u]Jude[/name_u] for sure, although I do quite like [name_u]Elias[/name_u].

[name_u]Love[/name_u] both. [name_u]Jude[/name_u] slightly wins out for me personally, but I prefer the longer, more “formal” [name_u]Elias[/name_u] with your boys’ names.

This is incredibly hard as I love both and have both names on my top 20 list. I have the combination [name_u]Jude[/name_u] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_u]Callum[/name_u] & [name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_m]Frederick[/name_m] [name_u]Rooney[/name_u] born combination I love completely :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts: still I think I’m going to have to go with [name_u]Jude[/name_u] as my favourite. I just think [name_u]Jude[/name_u] sounds happier than [name_u]Elias[/name_u] but still both are gorgeous

I like Elias more, but only if it’s pronounced in the Dutch way. We lay the emphasis on the first E, (E-lee-as) instead saying e-LYE-as (it’s the same with Tobias, Dutch pronunciation would be TO-bee-as)

I like both but I always want to say [name_u]Elias[/name_u] as EEL-ee-us rather than ee-LYE-us, which I don’t think is a recognised pronounciation anywhere :sweat_smile: So I probably will vote for [name_u]Jude[/name_u]. Both are handsome though!

They’re both nice names!

I like [name_u]Jude[/name_u] a little more because I always struggle with the pronunciation of [name_u]Elias[/name_u]. I’ve heard ee-lie-es and el-ee-us so I’m never sure which is the correct way.

Always [name_u]Jude[/name_u]! It’s my favorite boys name ever :yellow_heart:

I love [name_u]Jude[/name_u]! It’s gentle and strong, simple yet resonant. I do think [name_u]Elias[/name_u] fits maybe just slightly better with your sons’ names, but [name_u]Jude[/name_u] still wins for me :yellow_heart:

[name_u]Elias[/name_u] is more my style (we have a Tobias), but because of [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] I wouldn’t use [name_u]Elias[/name_u] myself :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: Besides, it’s getting popular, and I know soooo many Eli’s (some are [name_u]Elias[/name_u], some [name_m]Elijah[/name_m], some just Eli.) That may not be an issue where you are.

And [name_u]Jude[/name_u] was actually on our list for this baby, briefly. I really like it. It ended up falling off for being a little short next to the others, for not working well with our middle name preference, and for not being the name we loved enough for those things not to matter. (My husband did start singing “Hey Jude” when I brought it up, ha!) I know [name_u]Jude[/name_u] is pretty popular here, but I’ve not yet met one, while I do know a few Judahs.
