Ryan or Matthew? — The Bump
Baby Names

Ryan or Matthew?

DH likes traditional names so we have been going back and forth for awhile.  At 37 weeks I really want to decide.  We are between Ryan and Matthew for first name.  Middle name is set as Dominic.  Which do you like better?

  • i like them both. maybe wait til he's here and decide?
  • funny you say that.. I think we might have to wait until he is here.  I like to have a decision ahead of time but it has been so hard.  I'm leaning more toward one and him the other but both ok with compromising.
  • Love both...but I think I like Matthew Dominic together the best.
  • I like Ryan better, because I hate the nn Matt
    A lot of years and a million tears finally led me to you.
    After 7 years trying to concieve, 3 failed IUIs and 2 failed IVFs, my third IVF was a success!
    My Christmas baby turned into a turkey bird! Dillon Richard was born at 34 weeks, 5 days on November 28, 2009 after 10 weeks on bedrest for preeclampsia.

  • Both are great names. I think I like Ryan better. Slightly easier to say and I like "Ry" over "Matt"

  • i like them equally.
  • I like them both but Matthew is more common among people I know (3 close friends w/Matthews) so I would go with Ryan.  Either is great though.
  • I love Ryan..but I'm biased as well

  • Is this 1983?! 

    LOL, just kidding. The names are fine, they're just all the names I grew up with for classmates, and I married a Ryan!

    I like Ryan better.
