Re: Boy Names!

  • We picked Spencer after my father who passed away.

  • I find boy names incredibly hard!  I think the reason they're so hard for me is that I don't like names that have a nickname that everyone uses - Michael=Mike, Jacob=Jake, Matthew=Matt, etc.  That basically eliminates a huge portion of the boy names out there. BOO.

    Sorry I'm no help!

  • I found girl's names to be a billion times harder than boy's names.  I guess it would depend on what kind of name you're looking for.  One with lots of nn possibilities? Classic? Unisex? Short? Long?

    One idea is to watch the credits of tv shows and movies.  Lots of names  there.

  • We're having a girl, but the boy names we were seriously considering before the A/S were River (DH loved it), Harrison (my dad's middle name, my fave) and we both liked Graham. You're more than welcome to steal if you like them!
  • I agree!! Boy names are super hard for me as well. Have you played around on Nymbler.com at all? 

    Baby BOY is due May 23, 2014!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does this!!!  I have felt so weird about name shopping during credits, but maybe I'm not as crazy as I thought!

    Henry

    William

    Owen

    Timothy

    Joshua

    Joseph

    Thomas

    Evan

    George

    Nicholas

    Robert

    James 

    (Obviously, we like classic names.)

  • We are having Houston Christopher...he was Carson initially! We kinda liked sporty, yet old fashioned names! But, I feel you, boy names are difficult, it took us forever to decide! Good luck hunting!
  • If we had a boy we liked Pierce and Reid. Those are the ONLY two boy names I liked!

  • Ugh, boy names are SO HARD!!!  Of course, this could be b/c we had a girl named pick out forever ago only to be told this past Mon that we're team blue!  We're leaning towards Joshua but we also like Timothy, Benjamin, Graham, Johnathan, Daniel, David, Luke, Mark, Zachary and Matthew.  Yep, we like classic names too!

    I looked some names up for you in the Baby Name Wizard book that I have.  If you're not familiar, they will give you names that would be good sibling names to names that you like.  So, here goes:

    Colton: Dillon, Wyatt, Cash, Tanner, Landon

    Tanner:  Dalton, Hunter, Cooper, Tucker, Keaton

    Brody: Reece, Colby, Hudson, Bailey, Tucker

    Couldn't find a listing for Beckham.  

     Also, based on the category that Colton and Tanner fall in the book (Country and Western) here are some other suggestions (sorry, I copy and pasted so no commas):   Bo Boyd Buck Buzz Carson Casey Cash Cassidy Chance Cimarron Clint Cody Colt Colton Cooper Deacon Destry Dillon Duke Dusty Jed Joss Judd Kit Lane Levi Luke Mack Marshal Maverick Ranger Ridge Rory Rowdy Ruff Rusty Shane Squire Stetson Stoney Tex Trace Ty Wayne Wiley Woody Zane Zed

  • You're right, boys names are very hard!  We are coming up with NOTHING, and the 1 name I like, DH hates, haha!

    We are working backwards so to speak--starting with nicknames we like and seeing what full names we can pick from there.  (ex- Rob nickname -->Robert full name)

    We are also looking through our favorite books & movies to see what strikes us.

     Colton, Dalton, Bryce, Colby, Zane, Dane, Lane 

  • Check out nymbler.com, it will suggest names based on the names you like.

  • I'm a teacher and have found finding the "right" name near impossible!!!  We don't know what we are having but have narrowed it down to two boys names and no girls names! We both like Drew for a boy and I also LOVE Evan!  I guess we need a few girl options just in case!  Good luck and I feel your pain!!! xo
