A brother for Lenny

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] guys, we’re desperately racking our brains here to find a name for our little guy. We already have a little dude called [name_m]Lenny[/name_m] (short for [name_m]Leonard[/name_m]) so are keen to make this new little guys name feel unique by itself whilst not rhyming or being to samey with [name_m]Lenny[/name_m].

I really love the name [name_u]Noah[/name_u] but my partner isn’t so keen. We also like [name_m]Mac[/name_m], [name_u]Finn[/name_u]/[name_u]Flynn[/name_u], [name_m]Benji[/name_m]/ [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] and [name_m]Bodhi[/name_m]… were definitely fans of the old names with a nickname twist and/or something a little cool/ boho.

Any suggestions? Thanks ”

Some ideas

[name_m]Brody[/name_m]
[name_m]Cormac[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Mac[/name_m]’
[name_m]Clarence[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Ren[/name_u]’ ‘[name_u]Clancy[/name_u]’
[name_m]Jonah[/name_m]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Fox[/name_m]’ ‘[name_f]Flick[/name_f]’

[name_m]Edwin[/name_m]

[name_m]Roland[/name_m], Landy for short or [name_u]Ronny[/name_u].

I really like [name_m]Cormac[/name_m] “[name_m]Mac[/name_m]” for a brother name to [name_m]Leonard[/name_m] “[name_m]Lenny[/name_m]”

From your list, I also think [name_m]Bodhi[/name_m] works well, but may be too rhymey for your taste with [name_m]Lenny[/name_m]

I love [name_m]Malcom[/name_m] NN: [name_m]Mac[/name_m] with brother [name_m]Leonard[/name_m]

[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] & [name_m]Otis[/name_m] is a great match - very much the retro but boho vibe. [name_m]Lenny[/name_m] & Otie? [name_m]Lenny[/name_m] & [name_m]Oz[/name_m]?
[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] & [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] could be [name_m]Lenny[/name_m] & Lo, that’s cute.

What about [name_m]Amos[/name_m]? That conjures such a sweet, jolly baby boy to me. [name_m]Leonard[/name_m] & [name_m]Amos[/name_m]…[name_m]Lenny[/name_m] & [name_m]Ace[/name_m]?

[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] & [name_m]Abram[/name_m]…[name_m]Lenny[/name_m] & [name_m]Bram[/name_m]

[name_m]Leonard[/name_m] & [name_m]Orlando[/name_m] …[name_m]Lenny[/name_m] & [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]

My son is [name_m]Otis[/name_m] and we have [name_m]Lenny[/name_m] on our list for our baby due in 4 weeks! I think they work well together. I know brothers names [name_m]Lenny[/name_m] and [name_u]Van[/name_u]. I also love [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] and [name_m]Albie[/name_m].

I really like [name_m]Archibald[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Archie[/name_m]’ to go with [name_m]Leonard[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Lenny[/name_m]’ :slight_smile:
