20 Boys Names [Unusuals]


I love canyon, it’s on my list!

[name]Valley[/name] - seems like more of a girls name
[name]Brick[/name] - he’ll get “dumb as a”
[name]Aberdeen[/name] - met a little girl named this
Equinox - don’t really see this as a name
Edinburgh - yuck
[name]Ember[/name] - he’ll get amber his whole life
[name]Wales[/name] - this just seems mean, “you were named after sea life?”
Lexicon - really?
Malachite - [name]Malachi[/name] is 100% better
[name]Odin[/name] - perfectly normal name
[name]Quartz[/name] - Really?
Spyridon - Really?
[name]Ransom[/name] - seeing this more and more, has a nice ring to it.
Flyer - Might as well use [name]Pilot[/name], or Aviary, or Avian, or plane
[name]Auburn[/name] - seems girly
[name]Sable[/name] - definitely girly
[name]Crow[/name] - This is a joke right?
[name]Canyon[/name] - [name]Lovely[/name]
Heathrow - usable, but a bit unusual

Honestly I find it hard to label these as unusual boy names. I wouldn’t consider a lot of these names - just words. I also don’t know what’s particularly “boy” about many of them since I don’t see them as names in the first place.

I don’t like most word names, so bear with me… most I’ll probably just put a yes or no but I’ll go more in depth on the ones I really need to comment on…

[name]Valley[/name] - No.
[name]Brick[/name] - No.
[name]Aberdeen[/name] - This is a city to me, not a name.
Equinox - Like the car?
Edinburgh - Another city name I can’t see as a person name.
[name]Ember[/name] - I actually kinda like this on a boy. It sounds kind of like a masculine version of [name]Amber[/name].
[name]Wales[/name] - No.
[name]Dover[/name] - No.
Lexicon - Huh?? No.
Malachite - No.
[name]Odin[/name] - Reminds me of that guy married to one of the Kartrashians.
[name]Quartz[/name] - No.
Spyridon - What???
[name]Ransom[/name] - No. I don’t get this “name” at all.
Flyer - No.
[name]Auburn[/name] - Probably one of the better ones on the list, but still no.
[name]Sable[/name] - Girl’s name to me.
[name]Crow[/name] - No.
[name]Canyon[/name] - No.
Heathrow - Maybe.

I love [name]Brick[/name], it’s on my faves list. [name]Paul[/name] [name]Newman[/name] was so handsome and [name]Cat[/name] on a Hot [name]Tin[/name] Roof is my mom’s favorite movie

[name]Love[/name] the strength and history of [name]Odin[/name] but I’d only use it as a mn

[name]Ransom[/name] (as a given name) is an old American name. Unless your ancestor was ransomed from the Native Americans, I find it an odd choice

I like nature names so I like [name]Ember[/name]/[name]Embry[/name], [name]Auburn[/name], and [name]Canyon[/name]. However the girls have run the “[name]Em[/name]” names ragged so I wouldn’t use [name]Ember[/name]
