At a loss

[name]Ive[/name] never had a problem deciding on boy names that I absolutely love, the problem has always come while trying to think of girl names. I always have the thought of “Thats a really great name, but…I would never name my child that”; So now I’m enlisting y’alls help. Im really trying to find something that fits in with the boy names I already love and something that will flow with the last name of “[name]Smith[/name]”. No [name]John[/name] or [name]Janes[/name] for me. Lol.

The names [name]Ive[/name] already found and fell in love with are:
[name]Zacharias[/name] ([name]Zach[/name] or [name]Zachary[/name])
[name]Nathaniel[/name] ([name]Nat[/name], [name]Nate[/name], or [name]Nathan[/name])
[name]Mathias[/name] or Mathiason ([name]Matt[/name])

Yes there are a few girl names in there or even some that could be used for either gender, but those are along the line we’re looking for.


You’ve got a nice collection of Biblical names for boys with [name]Zacharias[/name] (or [name]Zachariah[/name]), [name]Nathaniel[/name], and [name]Matthias[/name]. To compliment those, I might recommend something like [name]Miriam[/name], [name]Naomi[/name], [name]Rebecca[/name], or [name]Shoshana[/name]. Boys’ names like [name]Adlai[/name] and [name]Elijah[/name], [name]Ira[/name] and [name]Elihu[/name] might also work. [name]Asher[/name], too, is a Hebrew name, but he’s got a more modern sound - by the way, I love [name]Asher[/name], and [name]Asher[/name] [name]Smith[/name] is great! For a female counterpart to [name]Asher[/name], you might try something like [name]Ada[/name], [name]Dinah[/name], Hosanna, or [name]Sela[/name]. Perky and sweet, like [name]Asher[/name]!

Then you’ve got some Irish-Celtic sort of names with [name]Aiden[/name], Decklan, and [name]Maeve[/name]. Firstly, though [name]Aiden[/name] is the most common spelling, [name]AIDAN[/name] is the Celtic saint’s name. And, I’d spell Decklan as [name]DECLAN[/name] so it looks like like, uh, deck chair? Ha. I think [name]Declan[/name] is more unusual than [name]Aidan[/name], for sure, and [name]Declan[/name] [name]Smith[/name] is really cool, as is [name]Maeve[/name] [name]Smith[/name] (if you use a longer middle name). I’d recommend others that are similar but not identical in origin and style like [name]Quinn[/name], [name]Quinlan[/name], [name]Rafferty[/name], [name]Reilly[/name], or even names like [name]Rhys[/name] or [name]MacGregor[/name]. For a girl, options like [name]Bridget[/name], [name]Nola[/name], [name]Fiona[/name], [name]Finola[/name], and [name]Morgana[/name] feel appropriate.

Your last category is what I’m going to term the trendy set, if only because some of these names have rather unconventional spellings. Really, I’d say they are all variants on nature names, which are “on trend,” not necessarily trendy. [name]Grayson[/name] is trendier than, say, [name]Gray[/name] or Grayer or something like that, trendier even than simple [name]Grace[/name] for a girl. [name]Sage[/name] is really quite a lovely, peaceful nature name for either a boy or girl, but with your short last name, [name]Smith[/name], I might go for something a little longer, myself. And, [name]Aspyn[/name]. Well, that’s one way to spell the name, and those [name]Brown[/name]'s on [name]Sister[/name] Wives liked it, too, but I’d probably go with [name]ASPEN[/name] just to save trouble. It’s a little tougher and more striking that [name]Sage[/name], but it has a really cool vibe to it - I like! Others you might like are [name]Rowan[/name], for a girl or boy, or names like Jarrah, [name]Basil[/name], [name]Drake[/name], [name]River[/name], or [name]West[/name] ([name]Westley[/name], [name]Weston[/name]) for a boy, or [name]Clover[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Acacia[/name], [name]Juniper[/name], [name]Briar[/name], [name]Lark[/name], [name]Winter[/name], or [name]Wren[/name] for a girl.

[name]Lemon[/name], as usual, made some amazing suggestions! I love [name]Naomi[/name], [name]Sela[/name], [name]Maeve[/name] (have you you considered [name]Maeva[/name]?), [name]Fiona[/name], [name]Acacia[/name], [name]Rowan[/name], [name]Briar[/name] and [name]Juniper[/name] from your and her lists. Here are some more ideas:
[name]Ciara[/name] (or [name]Keira[/name])

Best wishes!
