    Default changed the list again!..Noah or Bodhi..?

    Ok i took Kalan off the list, everyone i mentioned it too said oh yes i like Callum!
    I dont want bubs having to correct his name his whole life. And im not that much a fan of Callum.
    Or Kay-lan which others pronounced it as.

    So its now between Bodhi and Noah.
    We love both names..
    So need to see what others think..

    Ta in advance..

    I like kalan but I'd spell it Callan if you want that pronunciation.

    But honestly you go with your heart. People learn how to pronounce names.

    I know a Calum whose name is pronounce Kay-lum. Most people only have to be told once or twice

    I've always like Callan & Callum. I saw somewhere that Sarah Murdoch's (?) son is Kalan or maybe Kallan. I think I prefer it with a C though.

    Out of Noah & Bohdi I prefer Noah although it is fairly popular & that sort of turns me off it a bit. For me Bohdi sounds a bit boganish - sorry don't want to offend anyone, just my opinion.

    I would have pronounced Kalan as Kaylan just looking at it. Out of the two names I really like Noah. Bodhi would get Brodie a lot and I think it would get misspelt a lot. Just being honest

    Bodhi. I know a little boy called Bodhi. I also know a dog called Bodhi! In my experience, it is a popular name with buddhists. But still quite uncommon generally. Noah is very popular. Good luck!
    FWIW, I love Kalan!

    Definitely Noah. Bodhi makes me think of Pauly Shore for some reason....must be the bogan sound.

    My DS's name is Bodie (spelt that way) and I admit he does get Brodie sometimes. Noah is too common these days.

    I don't think its boganish at all!

    .... oooh i'm so sorry as i instantly thought the same thing

    Noah is a lovely name (i like Callum)

    If your not a fan of Callum i went to school with a Cullen, just an idea (though can be a surname too) !!

    How funny, I'm usually so strictly traditional with what I like in a name, but the moment I saw Bohdi, I thought, how nice, reminds me of a Bohdi tree and very Buddist sounding...and I'm definately one for going, ewwwww bogan name, but that doesn't strike a bogany chord with me lol.
