Baby Names

B help

I need help with B names. We just decided on names a few weeks ago, before my uncle passed away unexpectedly. We've now scrapped what we had in order to name the babe in his honor.

We're team green, so need girl and boy options. Neither of us like really trendy or modern names, and that seems to be all we're finding. I love Benjamin, but H isn't on board at the moment. We both like Briona, Briar and Birdie for girls, but I feel like they all might be a little too unique.

I'm struggling. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

     I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it, but I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do it because of you.  I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.

  • For a boy, I love Barrett, but that might veer on too modern?

    I don't love your girls' choices, they all seem "trendy" and "modern" so I'm not quite sure what your definition of that is.  I like Beatrice and Bridget, both of which are more classic names.

  • Bridget is my fav for girls.  Other ideas: Bernadette, Brita, Breanna, Brenna

    Blake is also my favorite for boy names Other ideas: Brent, Brett, Broderick (NN Brody), Brady

    See, I thought they were older names. What do I know?! lol

    I also like Beatrice and Bernard, but my H hasn't weighed in, which makes me think he doesn't like them.

    has he suggested any?

  • My uncle was Bruce.

    My H suggested Buster ... yes very modern, but a name I've aaaaaaaalways loved. I declined bc as much as I love it, just no. lol it'll prob be a NN though ... Brice, which is too close, Brie, Basil, Bill and Bennett.

    I think I like Bennett, but not as much as Benjamin. I don't love Brie, but like Briona as an alternative better. The others I'm not a big fan of, basically. We have a Betty already in the family, or I would vote Bette. I think we like Bella, but that makes me think Twilight for some reason.

    ETA I also like Brit, Hebrew for covenant, but not Brittany. I was actually thinking more for a boy?

  • We're doing b names for the first boy and have been working on it for a while. Our front runners are Beauregard nn Beau and Benedict nn Ned. If you can search my posts I've done a couple on boy b names and have gotten a ton of suggestions. I love Bernadette for a girl and Bronwen has been a GP name for me. I also like Beryl and Belinda. I really like Birdie as a nn, I think for Elizabeth.

    I really like the suggestions of Briony and Bette, plus your earlier one for Beatrice.

    I'm with you on Benjamin for a boy.

    I feel like I've looked at every list on every google "baby name" B search option that comes up. Many it's seeing them in order, but they all run together and nothing stands out to me.

    But thanks for the help?

    1) The pronunciation of Brit in Hebrew is more like "Breet" so that might not be what you're looking for.

    2) I went to high school with a guy named Brit who was GORgeous, so I have good connotations with that name for a guy. I mean, jaw-droppingly good looking.  But dumb as a bag of rocks.  We used to say he was someone who you wanted around all the time, as long as his mouth was closed.

    We're Jewish, so I'm picking up what you're throwing down ::mobile, pretend I'm winky:: We'd prob use the English pronunciation, though, to minimize confusion and a life time of corrections for the poor kid.

    I think one reason I like Benjamin so much is bc it's more biblical.

  • Briana is good for a girl if you're worried about going too out there. Brittany is common too, but I've never met a Brittany I liked so I'm not prone to like it.

    I also like (for girls)

    Briar

    Bethany

    Bianca

    Brooke

    Bella (but I get the twilight vibe too Ick!)

    I went to HS with a girl named Bronwyn. I liked that but it's way out there.

    Boys:

    Benjamin

    Brady

    Bradley

    Bennett (makes me think of a last name though)

    Bentley

    Brayden

    Bryson (it's out there, and kinda close to Bruce though)
