    I think I like Jacob Daniel best. It flows better than Jacob David (IMO)

    Lucas is our current favorite baby boy name, so I voted that! I also love the name Jacob, but wouldn’t use it for the same reason you said, I don’t want a million kids in his class with the same name. But really I love both of them, good taste.

    I just like Lucas Daniel better, I feel like it flows best. I don’t have a real reason for it though.

    I like either Lucas or Jacob for the first name.  I’m just not a fan of the name David…  too many “odd” kiddos with that name.  lol 

    P.S. Congrats on your pregnancy!!

    I like both names but something about Lucas grabs me just a little bit more!  It might be because it’s not quite as popular (I seriously think every third person I know who has recently had a boy has named him Jacob) but even putting that aside, I just love the name Lucas.  You could keep it as Lucas or shorten it to Luke – both are great names.   

    As for his being teased about “Luke, I am your faaaaaathahhh”, well there’s an equally good, if not better chance, that he’s going to get teased about being Edward Cullen or some other Twilight reference (I’ve never read/seen Twilight so I can’t make any references but I’m sure there must be some!)  

    That being said, if you are seriously leaning towards Jacob, by all means go with it – it’s a lovely name!   If you can’t be certain that it’s the right name, maybe don’t share your name with people (or let them know you don’t want personalised gifts before the baby arrives) and decide which name suits him better when he arrives.

    I voted for Lucas Daniel because it has a nicer flow to it. I think Jacob David is a little more awkward because of the double “AY” sound (JAY-cob DAY-vid). Hopefully that makes sense…

    I like Lucas because you don’t see it every day.  I’m a teacher…there are a LOT of Jacobs…but I have to say in 4 years I’ve never had a Lucas in class.  That’s my reasoning πŸ˜€

    @KansasPrincess11: I love both of those names!  But I work with kids and have to agree with one PP, there are lots more Jacobs than Lucases.  You really can’t go wrong though!
