I need input on my baby boy's name

I have a daughter named Lucy (named after CS Lewis' character in The Chronicles of Narnia) and I'm pregnant with a boy. My husband and i love the name Jude for a boy but...
...Would it sound like we have Beatles themed children?

We love the Beatles, but...we don't want people to think we named our kids after Beatles songs.

So, if i introduced my kids to you as "Lucy and Jude"...what would you think?

  • I think it'd be fine. Today's younger generation wouldn't think about the Beatles at all.

    My name is Wendy and my sister is Rhonda. They are both Beach Boy's songs (many people know the "Help Me Rhonda" but not too many of the younger generation know of the "Wendy" song).

    Siblings don't live their entire lives together. They grow and branch out on their own, so I don't see any reason to base a child's name off of their siblings.

    I think Jude is a great name.

  • I would think of the Beatles. Although I am a fan, most people probably would never think of it.

  • well honestly I think of a girl when I hear Jude... maybe because my best friends name is Judy and I call her Jude all the time... This is just my opinion. But if I didnt know a Judy I would think its a great name.. didnt think of the beatles song at all..

  • They are cute names! A friend of mine just named her boy Jude....and I admit I thought "hey Jude" but I grew up listening to the Beatles and I don't think most people would make the connection!
