So my husband and I were set on girl names, but found out we're having a boy! We've narrowed it down to three names. I can't decide at all so I'm hoping to get some feedback. Our daughters name is Victoria. Boy names so far are:Donovan John Michael (Don or DJ for short)Tobias John Michael (Toby or TJ for short)Leonardo John Michael (Leo for short)The middle names are aftee my grandfather and my husband's father, so those are the only names we're sure about.We're open to suggestions for first names! I haven't found any boy names I LOVE yet
DH and his siblings all have top 10 popular names, so having something a bit more unique is super important to him (and I tend to agree). We also don't want completely "yoonique" names so like a lot of people, we're finding girl names to be much easier (Team Green). He's also really against any name that would constantly get spelled/pronounced incorrectly which I find a bit ironic given some of the names he still likes for our short list. We have a list of a dozen of each sex picked out, and for girls we both love Ruby, Rayna and Miranda, though I also really like Liara and Emelia, while he's in love with Coraline, which I think is fine for a middle name, but not a first name. For boys he adores Max, but otherwise we're all over the place. I'll be honest, I really don't love any of the boys names, but our short list includes Zachary, Ian, Shane, Xander, Asher, and Troy.
I have absolutely no idea what to name my son. Like zero ideas. My husband likes the name Joel, but I'm not a fan, and when he says it, it sounds like he's saying "jewel", which is an even bigger turnoff for me. I don't care if it's common or not, but most nice, common, albeit older names that I like are the names of people we know personally. Jonathan, Caleb, Michael, Noah, Tyler, Logan, etc. I love biblical names like Micah and Ezra but I can't get my H to be on board. I like vintage names but not too crazy, and nothing with weird spelling. I guess I'm just really picky with boy names
We are in trouble with having to think of another boy name. We like names that sound academic, old fashioned, uncommon, but not unfamiliar. The first time, my H made a list of about 10 names and there was only 1 that I liked. Help me come up with other names that have the same "feel" as the names on his list. These are the ones I can remember...JulianEmersonEdisonEzraAlexanderGraysonI wish I could think of the rest of the names he picked. I think these are all good names, but just not perfect for various reasons. Except Edison. I really don't like that one. LOL hope that doesn't offend anyone
@AdaByron There are some names more popular here in the U.K. that might meet your criteria:Alfred (nn Alfie)Albert (nn Albie)SamuelMaxwellOliverHarrisonGeorgeOscarArcher/ArchieSebastianCallum
