A brother for Maverick Ace

We are expecting a new little boy to be arriving in [name]November[/name].

The only name that we have ever agreed upon is [name]Maverick[/name] [name]Ace[/name], which we named our son three years ago.

My SO is set on [name]Beau[/name] (which I can’t stand) and I am set on [name]Brantley[/name] (that my SO can’t stand)

Help us please! We’re looking for something different (but not TOO different) and our last name is Woodcock (so you have to be careful with that one…)

[name]Maverick[/name] [name]Ace[/name] makes quite a statement, so I think his brother’s name should too. Some of these are more out there, some aren’t.


Those are a lot of good suggestions. I too would recommend [name]Bridger[/name], [name]Grant[/name], and [name]Kingston[/name]. I’d be careful choosing another word name if it’s obviously a word ([name]Maverick[/name] and [name]Justice[/name] or even [name]Maverick[/name] and [name]Cannon[/name] might make my eyes roll a little, but [name]Maverick[/name] and [name]Crew[/name] is a little more subtle without losing its cool). Between [name]Beau[/name] and [name]Brantley[/name], what about…

[name]Barrett[/name] (nn [name]Bear[/name])

Or for a match between old-fashioned, gentlemanly [name]Beau[/name] and modern [name]Brantley[/name], what about…

[name]Ryder[/name] or [name]Ryker[/name]
[name]Griffin[/name] or [name]Griffith[/name]
[name]Tate[/name] or [name]Tatum[/name]

[name]Bodhi[/name] seems like a good compromise between the two- though it may bother you that it has too much of the “beau” sound. What about Bowyn/[name]Bowen[/name] or [name]Booker[/name]. If you’re not going for the B I liked the suggestions of [name]Flynn[/name], ransom, jethro, and mace

Well at least you and your huz have one thing in common - you both like B names!

Many names that start with B for little guys have the potential of having the nn [name]Bo[/name] (or [name]Beau[/name]). Would you be able to allow your husband to have his own special nickname for his son, even if you couldn’t stand it? Some options could be

Bolt, maybe [name]Bolton[/name] (now this would be fun with [name]Maverick[/name]!)

hope this helps!

[name]Maverick[/name] [name]Ace[/name]. All boy! [name]Love[/name] it.
As for his little brother, he’s got quite a sibling name to compete with there, [name]IMO[/name]!
Any chance you like any longer versions of [name]Beau[/name], such as [name]Beauregard[/name]? I think [name]Beauregard[/name] & [name]Maverick[/name] go very well together!

Ideas (sorry in advance for any repeats!):

  • [name]Bearnard[/name] (nn: [name]Bear[/name])
  • [name]Beirne[/name] (means ‘bear’)
  • [name]Baldemar[/name]/[name]Baldomar[/name]
  • [name]Banebridge[/name]
  • [name]Banks[/name] ([name]One[/name] of my male acquaintances dons this as a first name & I reallly like it!)
  • [name]Banner[/name]
  • [name]Banning[/name]
  • Bannoch
  • Barek/[name]Barrick[/name]
  • [name]Barnabee[/name]/[name]Barnaby[/name]

[name]Gunner[/name]/[name]Gunnar[/name]–but then I remembered your last name. Unless it doesn’t bother you two.
[name]Bolton[/name]/Bolt - another [name]Berry[/name] suggestion–thought it sounded cool as well.

[name]Colt[/name] or [name]Colton[/name]

I liked the suggestions of [name]Baron[/name] and [name]Scout[/name] aswell

[name]AH[/name]!! my oldest son’s name is also maverick…lol if your going o stick with the B’s how about brighton or brexley.

What don’t you like about [name]Beau[/name]? I love it. [name]One[/name] of my all time favorite names is [name]Beau[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] nn Bodie ([name]Beau[/name] D.)
With [name]Maverick[/name], the first names that came to mind were [name]Creed[/name], Truett, [name]Hendrix[/name], [name]Zane[/name] and [name]Sebastian[/name].

[name]Maverick[/name] Woodcock is a lot of name!

I actually really like [name]Beau[/name]. A word of caution about [name]Brantley[/name]: it was the fastest rising boys’ name of 2011. It jumped more spots than any other boys’ name on the popularity charts.

Not sure if that’s an issue for you or not.
