I've loved the name Matthew since I first heard what it meant(some 10years before I had my son); so I had no problem deciding what to name my first born. It has been the most common boys' name for years in my country but who cares!Its gorgeous!

I absolutely love this name. It is also my husband's middle name, so it was an easy choice for my son.

I think the name Matthew is really pretty, and I just love the meaning.. Also I like the spelling with the double t. There is also the alternative by spelling it Mathew, but I like it better the other way .

If you name your boy this, please don't call him Matti (that poor lit'l boy)
