This is a great name for a boy. When I hear it I immediately picture a strong, handsome, intelligent, masculine guy. This is also the name of one of the main characters in the film version of Nicholas Sparks romance novel 'The Notebook'.

The name Noah for boys is becoming very popular it seems like. But I would say it is my favorite name. My boyfriend's name is Noah and his mom always tells me she choose it for him because when he was born he was like her "rainbow after the storm" (like Noah's Ark). I thought it was kinda cute. ( :

My younger son is named Noah, I liked it from Noah Wyle in E.R. (John Carter). It means rest/comfort and it worked, he was a great sleeping baby and still is!

The book Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle is a retelling of the flood story. In it, Noah is stubborn, family-oriented, and very trusting of God. His wife's name is Matred.
Aqua  4/6/2007
I never really liked this name. It's my cousin's name (he pronounces it NO-uh), and now I'll think of a short, brown-curly-haired kid with big teeth whenever I hear the name. I'm not religious, and I tend to dislike anything to do with Christianity, but this name is alright, I guess.

I named my son Noah, I just love this name for a boy. It's such a cute baby name, and when he gets older he'll be a "hottie" Noah! LOL

Other classic names have undesirable nicknames, but Noah is Noah. No wonder people are realizing what a strong, simple, and wondeful name it is.

I think Noah is a soft, yet strong name.
applemilk  8/29/2007
I love this name. I would definitely name my son this (if I had one) if I didn't think he would be teased about it. Which unfortunatley a child called Noah would. But if I do ever have a son this will be his middle name. Although all of my friends think it's a weird name, I love it. I think it's unique and would sound really cute on a little boy.

I love this name for a little boy. I plan to name my firstborn little son Noah. I just hope the names will not go out of fashion because I want modern, "in" names for my childen; not outdated, old fashioned ones. For example, Jason is gettin pretty 1970-1980's. I don't want that to happen to my little Noah.

tigerlilly  4/18/2008
Boy, this really has become popular in Scandinavia, especially in Norway. It seems like every little boy I meet bears this name, and the most common combo has to be Noah Alexander. The worst part is that the parents feel SO creative for giving their son the name Noah Alexander, and they don't realise they aren't before he starts in kindergarden and gets to know six other Noah Alexanders.

My youngest daughter is named Noah Elizbeth. I love the name for either a boy or a girl, it's just really a beautiful name, no matter what gender. I always get so many compliments from my daughter's teachers on how beautiful they think her name is. Break the conformity! If you want to name your daughter Ryan, or Evan, or Chase, go ahead! I think it's dumb to hold back from using a name just because it's "masculine." I mean, I don't think anyone would name their daughter "Christopher", or "Daniel", but names like Evan, Chase, Noah, and Charley are also suited for a girl!
― Anonymous User  8/18/2009
It's very overused, and I agree that some people using it just want to be "creative", not knowing a lot of little boys have this name. I prefer it on a girl, anyway.
bananarama  9/4/2009
Scanning through the comments it seems like people either think the name is extremely overused or they think it's weird like they've never heard of anyone named Noah before. I'm in the middle. It's a popular name but not every little boy has it. I don't think it's at all feminine. More just soft. My boyfriend is named Noah so I may be (a bit) biased but I think of a very intelligent, sensitive, and complex man. Reserved and shy.

This is a name for Jewish people or 19th century Americans. Are you Jewish? Are you 200 years old? No? Then, don't name your kid Noah.
johann14  1/31/2011
I'm a Deist, and I would name my son Noah in a heartbeat if it weren't so incredibly popular. It's fine to not like a name, but to suggest that a name is just for one religion and age (in your case Jews and 200-year-old people) is just ridiculous and uncalled for. My mom is agnostic and she named me Christina, which is pretty weird I admit, but it just goes to show that people of different religions and can name their kids whatever they want.
Chrila96  2/7/2011
I adore the name Noah for a boy! I think it's strong, handsome, masculine, and will suit all ages. I disagree that it's "overused". Yes, it ranked #4 in popularity in the US for 2010, BUT I wouldn't consider that overused. I think Noah is a nice, handsome and simple name that SHOULD be popular. When I think overused, I think something like Jayden or Nevaeh, something that just doesn't make much sense (to most people) to be popular.

I would suggest Noah to someone expecting right now.
LittleSamGirl  8/3/2011
My husband and I have decided to name our daughter this. Yes, we're aware that in the US it's a hugely popular boy's name. But it's a girl's name. A mispronunciation of Noah (No-Ankh) and the Ark forever screwed it up. In Hebrew, adding "ah" makes a name feminine. That's why there is totally different meaning for the "feminine version" of this name. And while I don't hold with the idea that "giving a girl a boy's name makes them a strong and empowered woman", I do think that you should give your child a name into which you put time and effort. Not something that sounded "cute" or "creative" or Heaven forbid, "popular". Your child has to live forever with the name YOU choose. That's a whole lot of responsibility! Think before you choose. Or at least, take a minute to look it up.

In the beginning there was only water, a chaos of churning, bubbling water, this the Egyptians called Nu or Nun. It was out of Nu that everything began. As with the Nile, each year the inundation no doubt caused chaos to all creatures living on the land, so this represents Nu. Eventually the floods would recede and out of the chaos of water would emerge a hill of dry land, one at first, then more. On this first dry hilltop, on the first day came the first sunrise. So that is how the Egyptians explain the beginning of all things.

I really like the name Noah. It's very soft and sweet sounding but ages well. I usually like more unusual names for boys, but I would consider using Noah despite its popularity.
hattie98  3/21/2014
A sweet name for a BOY only. It has and always will be a male name. Spell it the Japanese/Hawaiian way "Noa" and wham- you've got a girls name. Simple. This "oh, hey, lets give our daughter a BOYS name" trend is undoubtedly, deeply and increasingly annoying.

Such a nice name! I like this both on girls and boys. If a girl bears it, it sounds pretty and cute. With boys it's strong and delicate in a masculine way. Plus, this name ages well with its bearer! Noah is close to perfection.

I can't possibly imagine why anyone would name their baby boy Noah! It is the most popular name, so why can't I bear to say it? It is 100% a feminish name. It is so ugly, you picture some person who is so shy, and repulsive! THINK PEOPLE, THINK!
Antonio432  3/20/2015
I completely disagree with Antonio432 as my name is indeed Noah. I am 17 and in no way do I act like a feminist. I've been through parents divorce, several surgeries having to with sinuses, oh and I was diagnosed with narcolepsy a few months ago (I'm 17, FYI) I also have depression. So yeah, I've kinda had to grow up and tough up a lot in a short amount of time. I'm highly offended by his comment and in no way am i a feminist. Don't judge someone by a name. There's a reason why it has become the most popular name and yours has not and it's not because it is feminist. (I was also born 1997 when it was 38th most popular).

I think this name is lovely on a boy or a girl. But since it is grotesquely popular for boys right now I would use it on a girl.

Michael W Smith's song, "Hello, Goodbye," is addressed to a baby named Noah:

And so I hold your tiny hand in mine
For the hardest thing I've ever had to face
Heaven calls for you before it calls for me
When you get there save me a place

A place where I can share your smile
And I can hold you for more than just awhile

Noah, hello, good-bye
I'll see you on the other side
Noah, sweet child of mine
I'll see you on the other side.
Feorsteorra  6/23/2015
Noah is a biblical name. Noah built an ark. He was a man and it is a boys/man's name. Anyone suggesting that they name a girl this should re-evaluate their thought process unless you want your daughter to be made fun of. There are few enough boy names out there - stop trying to make every boy name a girl's name. You might as well name your daughter John.

I think Noah is a great name, because it's my name! I disagree with those people saying that it's too common, the only other Noah's I've seen are on T.V. (And rarely) so in my experience it's a fairly uncommon name. You shouldn't be put off by a name just because of its popularity, what matters is that you think that this name is best for your child.
― Anonymous User  2/28/2016
It's not a bad name, but it feels so trendy and childish that I would never want to use it. It kind of reminds me of the names "Levi" and "Asher" in that it's an old Biblical name with a lot of history, yet still sounds like a modern made-up name that every other little boy under two has. I don't particularly like it on a girl, but it does have a bit of history as a girl's name, so I won't complain about it's feminine usage being a trendy development.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/11/2016
I find it interesting that it finally became so popular. Growing up (Born 1972), I was always the only Noah. I've found most girls find it to be a cute strong name, especially for a cute guy. As for being called "Noah & the Ark" I actually use it myself. If someone didn't get my name the first time, instead of spelling it out, I say, "Noah, like the Ark" there's always the short pause of confusion followed by a smile & "Oh, How nice!""

RomanCS02  2/12/2017
Not a bad name, in my opinion. It does, however, remind me of a snarky teenager saying, "why don't you know-ah." The "ah" sound at the end is the unfortunate, losing syllable.

I grew up with my best friend in elementary school and his name was Noah. We were really great friends and I really thought it was an amazing name. We were 9 or 10 years old (3rd grade) and our teacher asked if we ever wanted children when we were older. I thought about my best friend Noah. I smiled and said to myself, "When I'm older I will give my future boy the name Noah." I was such a cutie back then, ahaha. Many years passed and I was 15 now. The thought came back as I began to miss my best friend Noah. I told myself yet again that I will still name my future baby boy Noah. Now I find myself at 18 years old writing letters to my future boy Noah hahaa :) You see I don't care about popularity of the name, I'm following my past self's little heart and what he felt :)
~ Currently 18 years old July 2017. Can't believe it's been almost 10 years. I miss my buddy Noah from school. I can't wait to meet my son Noah one day.. this name has so much meaning to me.

Official Name Critic  11/19/2017
I love this name (though I may be a little biased as my boyfriend’s name is Noah). I have a few friends named Noah as well and they are all kind and strong young men. Quite intelligent too.
I’ve never met a girl with the name Noa but I’m not against it for a girl. It’s your kid after all. Just know that they may be picked on.
I’m not too fond, however, of all the negative comments about the name. Who cares if it’s popular. The person is still unique. No two Noahs are the same. It is a handsome name for boys and a cute, albeit odd choice for girls. If you don’t like it, who cares? Keep your negativity to yourself.
Also, I never knew so many famous people were named Noah. Interesting.

The fact that is spells "No ah" makes it just seem unappealing. And the fact that it is the number one name in the US ruins it completely. This name does not seem special at all.

This is my favourite name for a son and I very much would love to use this name for a baby son... HOWEVER, I am concerned that with this name being so popular, I will regret using it for my son.

I think that I might have to let this one go...
