Im English but am living in Ireland with my fiancée and our little man, we are expecting baby number 2 in June. My son is called Noah and i am seriously thinking of calling the new baby Moses - my question is do you think it would be too out there for a small town? I really love the name but i dont know if it would be cruel in a small countryside community like we have here. Any thoughts?

Middle names will be Peter William after our paternal grandfathers

My back up first name is Jacob.

I live in a small community, a little fishing town right on the coast of Nova Scotia. I think it's a cute little sibset. I actually know someone (online, not in real life) with 4 boys and two of them are Noah and Moses. They also have an Ezra, and then the other boy is named after his father.

I really love the name Moses, you are correct, it takes guts to use it, but it is a very nice name. I say go for it!

Just popping in here. I'm English also but living abroad, I'm a teacher. We have a little boy called Moses in our nursery setting. At first, it was like 'Moses!?' but people's first reactions might be a bit like 'hmmm' but they'll soon get used it it as they get to know him. The Moses I know is a sweet lovely little boy so I have good associations. Personally I wouldn't use it myself but if you and your DH like it - why not.
