    Default Opinions on this name?

    Just wondering what you think of the name Joel for a baby boy? This is our 5th Bub and 3rd boy and I just can't think of anything else I like but haven't had positive feedback from family

    I don't mind it. I haven't heard it for a long time. The last Joel I knew was the super gorgeous guy in grade 11 when I went to school.

    My friend's older brother was named Joel, and I thought he was dreamy so I like the name. 👍

    I like it. Traditional but not super common anymore.

    It's a little harsh sounding to me but not horrible. If you like fairly traditional names what about

    Adam
    Liam
    Archer
    Oliver
    Lachlan
    Matthew
    Alexander
    Isaac
    Jacob
    Aiden

    I love it! It's a wonderful name! I have a friend Joel who is very proud of his name and its historical relevance. He also loves the face that Michelangelo painted Joel on the Sistine Chapel.

    As for your family... It's a good thing it's not their decision! Honestly, their feedback is irrelevant if you're happy with your decision.
