Boy names

Trying to decide between these boy names. I like uncommon but not crazy. Let me know what you think!

Sullivan (Sully) Tate

Bowen (Bowie) Alexander

Sawyer Alexander

Re: Boy names

  • If you want uncommon toss Sawyer. That said surnames in general aren't uncommon but in fact very trendy. I much prefer Sullivan to Bowen but I really dislike Tate all I see and hear is Taint.

  • Sullivan is the clear winner here. 

    But I'd look for a new middle.  All I can see is "sullied taint"

  • I strongly dislike Bowen. Sullivan is my favorite, but I would prefer Sullivan Alexander to Sullivan Tate.

  • I like Sullivan and Sawyer much more than Bowen. I would choose Sawyer, but Sullivan is more original/uncommon, so if that really matters, you should pick Sullivan. Both are great.

    Thanks ladies. Just for reference these are the names on my long list for first names. Did I scratch them off too soon?

    Eli
    Hunter
    Gabriel (not sure if I'm a fan of nn Gabe)
    Jesse
    Pheonix

  • Sawyer is my fave on the list in the original post, but I like both Hunter and Gabriel much more. Bowen is definitely at the bottom of your list for me.

  • And general thoughts on just Bowie as the first name. Is this adorable and totally different than Bowen or the whole thing is no good?
  • With the huge resurgence of David Bowie everything following his death, Bowie comes off as both a little bandwagon-jumping/fangirl-y to me, to be honest. Sorry!

    Agreed. Love love love Gabriel! 

    Suggesting

    Damon
    Trent
    Sebastian nn Bash, Bass, Bastian
    Silas
    Vaughn
    Jasper




  • I like Sullivan and Gabriel the best. Gabriel was on my list at one point, and I like the nn Gabe. I agree with @strawberrytree that Bowie might seem bandwagony, and possibly end up being dated (as in, in another 10 years, all the 10-year-olds named Bowie had to have been born in the class of 2016, 2017). That being said, I actually liked his music a lot and would love to meet a little Bowie in real life at some point. And Bowie over Bowen, hands down.

    Thanks guys! Love the suggestion of Sebastian and Silas but hubby hated both:( I was kinda leaning that way about Bowie the more I thought about it. I just like the name, no reference to David Bowie but everyone would think that I guess which could make it dated later on. With my firstbthe amen came easier to us and I think this one will be harder plus I'm team green so I have to get thinking about girls names too
  • After reading this whole thread my favorite is Hunter

  • Sullivan Tate is my fav. Sawyer Alexander is my least fav-- the endings are too similar. 

  • Thanks ladies. Just for reference these are the names on my long list for first names. Did I scratch them off too soon?

    Eli
    Hunter
    Gabriel (not sure if I'm a fan of nn Gabe)
    Jesse
    Pheonix

      Jesse is the best of this list.....NMS but very under used
  • Sullivan is okay. But Tate always sound so like taint to me. I dislike Bowie. All thoughts to David Bowie and in that sense is no better than Beckham or Axel (both of which are blah to me)... I LOVE Sawyer. I think it's underrated and I've never met any... 
  • What about Cedar?
