So, I have a problem with names. If I ever knew someone with that name or saw a show with a character that had that name, I cannot stand it as a name for my own child/pet, etc. It’s driving my Fiance nuts because we have to name our new puppy and everything is, “No, so and so named their puppy that” or “No, that was a character on TV.” lol – so, while I would normally like the name Cole, Cole was Balthazar on Charmed. I hope I’m not the only one here who was obsessed with that show.. lol. I’m not crazy about the name Brantley, because I feel like it’s up for mispronunciation. I like Jameson, but isn’t that a liquor?? Elijah is a little too biblical for me. Although, I do like the name Joshua. Then again, Rachel in friends dated a Joshua, but he was such a minor character, that’s ok…. I swear I’m not nuts.

Hmmm Brantley reminds me of the last name of my school’s old quarterback, who was horrid lol.
Jameson… is kind of a running joke between my circle of friends. Whenever we have a party and everyone’s had just a little too much to drink, we bust out my friend’s sock monkey, who has been named ‘Jameson,’ and pass him around for posing and pictures, ha ha ha.
I think Elijah is actually kind of a sweet name, though. I like Noah a lot, too, but Fiance doesn’t like those names at all. Sucks to be me!

Ok, I seem to be the only one that loves all of them. Brantley makes me think of Brantley Gilbert, whom I love, so it is awesome. Cole and Eli are so sweet. And Jameson is just plain cool. They are all pretty southern sounding to me, which is probably why I love them.

I’ve known too many Brantley and Coles. I like Jameson, classy and cool.

I dislike them all too but probably dislike Cole the least.

I don’t like any of them. I guess I dislike “cole” the least, but makes me think of the kid from “The Sixth Sense”.

Elijah is my favorite, but I like Cole too. I would like Jameson except it reminds me too much of the whiskey. And I’ve never heard of Brantley before. That’s so cute that Darling Husband is talking baby names!

@Ms.Pink: that’s my teeny tiny aversion to Brantley… But I do like him so it’s not a bad thing ! Yes , they’re pretty Southern sounding– surprise, surprise lol.
Darling Husband is really partial to Jameson, and has been for years so I know it’s his top contender.

I really really dislike Brantley. It sounds like something they’d name the chubby annoying kid in a movie.

@BagsnBooks: lol. I never would have associated Brantley with a chubby, annoying kid. Although– I think little chubby babies are cute so maybe that could work.

I think Jameson sounds cool, and doubt anyone would really think of a porn star or cheap liquor when looking at a sweet baby boy. 🙂

I like Cole personally. Or Elijah.
Brantley, I’m not sure why, but reminds me of a dog’s name?
And Jameson, I really really dislike. I also can’t NOT think of the alcohol.
