Boys Names Are So Tough! — The Bump

Boys Names Are So Tough!

DH and I don't know the sex yet but we will talk about names regularly. We have a couple of girl names but we don't have boy names that sound perfect yet. We have different tastes which is fine but it does make it harder with a boy name. I would like to have 1 or 2 possibilities that we really love. 

Our favorite boy name is Liam but that is not even a choice anymore because it is the most popular name on the planet. DH's other favorite name is Caleb, which is still not my favorite but I haven't taken it off the table. I would use Caleb if we can't come up with anything else because it is not my favorite but not a bad name at all, just nms.

Names my DH likes: Hayden, Caleb, Ethan, Keaton, Xavier, Miles, Bryce, Soren    (Ethan and Bryce are growing on me the most)

Names I like but my DH does not: Zachary, Nathan, Shane, Joshua, Micah, Damian

I would be happy with a name from his list but I just wanted to see any suggestions that I may not be thinking of? Last name is Tuttle to help with name suggestions (pronounced like cuddle but with a T)   I will not use the name Matthew or Eric because those are my brother's names.

  • I was thinking the same as @wassuphoes, that Ethan is similarly popular as Liam.
    Have you looked up what the too names are in your state? Maybe one of those is less common in your area?

  • Ethan is #10 in my state. 

    Caleb, my husband's other favorite is #21.

    Also, we are not using Liam because well yes it is popular in general but we can name like 5 or 6 people who had boys and all named their sons Liam.

    For me the name Caleb came off the table because I discovered it meant face like a dog (paraphrasing). I don't usually care too much about name meanings (my daughters name is Lilith, not a good meaning) but for some reason I just couldn't name my kid such an obvious insult!
