Boy names of similar style to Lillian, Nora, Violet, Vivienne

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] everyone,

I am continuing the search for boy names for our future child! DH and I seem to agree far more on girl names, so I thought I’d try to look at it from that perspective. What boy names do YOU think are similar in style or feel to our girls list?! [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] seems to be the one that DH likes the most on the girls list. Thanks!!

Hmmm… I think cute vintage-y names work for you. Ones that come to mind:
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] ([name_u]Theo[/name_u])

Here are some suggestions for boys names similar in style to [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], [name_f]Nora[/name_f], [name_f]Violet[/name_f] and [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f].

[name_m]Calvin[/name_m] (not with Liilian and [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f])
[name_m]Silas[/name_m] (not with [name_f]Violet[/name_f])


Great suggestions everyone!! We both do like [name_u]Theo[/name_u], but I’m not sure it’s “the one.” I think I prefer just [name_u]Theo[/name_u] over [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] bc I think you’re less likely to get the [name_m]Ted[/name_m] or [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] nn? But then I question if [name_u]Theo[/name_u] is a full name on its own? I like [name_m]Silas[/name_m] but DH has vetoed that one :frowning: I actually suggested [name_u]August[/name_u] to DH just the other day, and I think he thought I was joking? Haha he didn’t give me a yes or no on that one…[name_m]Gabriel[/name_m] is another one that I have been contemplating, as well as [name_m]Eli[/name_m]/[name_m]Elijah[/name_m], and [name_m]Griffin[/name_m]. I feel like I SHOULD love [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] as it seems to fit well with our girl names, but I just don’t for some reason. Trying to let it grow on me :slight_smile:

[name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_u]Elliot[/name_u], [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] or [name_m]Milo[/name_m]?

I like [name_m]Milo[/name_m] but I can’t use because a friend has already used it! I’m not a huge fan of [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] or [name_u]Elliot[/name_u].

[name_m]How[/name_m] about:

I like [name_m]Felix[/name_m], and I have been considering [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], but I HATE [name_m]Art[/name_m] for a nickname and I think that’s inevitable…

Ok how about…

Thanks for the ideas! I really do like [name_u]Emmett[/name_u] and I think that is going on the list :slight_smile:

[name_f]Lillian[/name_f] and [name_f]Nora[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] all seem of a piece to me, but [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] (at least spelled that way) seems more modern and altered.

It sounds as if you like romantic, quiet, old-fashioned girls’ names.

Your first three choices would be seemly on a teacher or librarian more so than a can can girl.

So male names that feel like that to me:



Since you like [name_u]Emmett[/name_u], what about:
[name_u]Everett[/name_u], [name_m]Bennett[/name_m], or [name_m]Beckett[/name_m]

Other names:
