Uncommon boy name help!

Help me with names! My DH is very picky with names, he likes them to have a meaning or significance. I'm more concerned with how they sound. We both want something that's not a top 100 popular name, so we are drawn towards more uncommon names. Our last name starts with an S and is very vowely (SP?) 

Come at me with your opinions!  

Enzo/Renzo
George
Rowan
Ayan (Eye-an) 
Lucian/Lucias
Aleric 
Cyrus 

Re: Uncommon boy name help!

  • Love Enzo although I prefer it as a nn to Lorenzo

    George is solid

    Love Rowan

    Ayan I would toss this

    Lucian is alright

    Aleric - suggesting Alec

    Cyrus I like 



  • Love Rowan, the rest are NMS

  • laurenm2123bbiutmcph  Thanks for the input! 
  • My favorites are Cyrus and Rowan. Aleric just makes me think "allergic," and Ayan would be extra vowely with your last name (plus it's a little strange to me). Lucian makes me think Lucifer, and Lucias looks like an error of Lucas and reminds me of Malfoy from Harry Potter.

    Suggesting Alan, Adrian, Silas, Simon, Luca

    I think Enzo and Rowan are on the verge of popularity, as I have seen a lot of people inquiring about them on here.

    I'm personally not a fan of Ayan.  I think he will always have issues with people trying to pronounce/spell it. 

    What about Alaric?  I think it sounds a bit better than Aleric.  And I do agree with the other poster when she said Allergy/Allergic.  That's all I can think of now.

    I like the first 3. 
  • Rowan is my favorite and I also like Cyrus. Least fave is Ayan. Too close to Aryan for me.

    Suggesting Cedric and Ronan,

  • Love Rowan. Prefer Silas over Cryus but it's okay. Suggest Jasper, Arlo, Cedar
  • George is super common so I am not sure how it's on your list if you guys want an uncommon name.

    From your list I like: Enzo, Renzo, Lucian (love!)

    Aleric makes me think of the veggie Celaric- so dislike. Ayan will just be constantly mispronounced. I like Rowan, but it's been taken over as a girl name IMO.

    What about Ezra? Or Luca? Those seem to fit with your naming style.

    Missed M/C at 9 wks July 2015.

    Expecting someone new 4/17/17.
  • George is not uncommon, out of the options I like Lucian or Cyrus. 

    What about Avery?
  • Rowan was on my shortlist, I like it, but yes it is getting popular. I saw a little girl named Rowan the other day actually. 

    From your list I like Lucian and Cyrus

  • I like George (although getting more popular), Rowan and Cyrus from your list. 

    What about Ewan? (Although might be too much vowel with your vowel-y last name?)

  • I like George. Enzo is a nn to me. Ayan also made me think Aryan and that's bad.

    Lucian/Lucias
    Aleric 
    Cyrus 

    Cyrus is probably great but it keeps making me think of "That dick Cyrus" from trailer park boys. 

    Enzo is great if you're talking about calling the kid "Lorenzo" and shortening it. 

    Rowan is ok. Ever consider Ronan? That was our second choice for a boy (that we agreed on..)
  • Love Lucian and Enzo
  • I think Enzo is the best of your top choices.  It was my grandpas (nick) name but think it's cute to use as a first name by itself.   I've seen sooo many Rowan's lately, so warning! Lol 
  • George is the best
  • Enzo was at the top of our list but as a NN for Lorenzo
    I prefer Luca to Lucian/Lucas

    I love Rowan.


  • As a PP said, Rowan is definitely on the up and up. I've had 3 friends and several acquaintances/people my friends know in the last year name their baby (both boy and girls) Rowan. It's definitely trending up.

    I love the name Alaric - never seen it spelled "Aleric" however.

    I like Rowan. I had a cat named Rowan after Mr Bean once. It is a little more popular now. I know of at least 7 under the age of 6 in my area.

  • Enzo/Renzo - Not my favorite, reminds me of Orzo (sorry, just my main go-to for that name)
    George - Classic - can't go wrong with this choice
    Rowan - Great name. Also like Ronan
    Ayan (Eye-an) - Never heard of this name but on first impression, I don't like it
    Lucian/Lucias - Lucian is great.
    Aleric - Not my fave but not terrible
    Cyrus - Not my style
