Boy sibling for Frank

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all!

We have a little dude, [name_m]Frank[/name_m] (just Frank). I love the strong classic, but not “classy” kind of names. I also love that it is a short to the point name, not [name_u]Francis[/name_u] or [name_m]Franklin[/name_m] etc.

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband likes [name_u]Dean[/name_u], I like it but cant help but think of the Rat Pack. which isnt terrible but I dont want to be criticized their whole lives either.
I really like [name_u]Leo[/name_u] and [name_u]Jack[/name_u], but my husbands sister and cousin have named their kids those names.

I did look back around 1910 at the most popular names, and nothing really stuck with me. What do you guys think?!

What about…
[name_m]Otis[/name_m]
[name_m]Archie[/name_m]
[name_u]Teddy[/name_u]
[name_u]Cameron[/name_u]
[name_u]Dylan[/name_u]
[name_u]Reid[/name_u]

What about:

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] & [name_m]Ralph[/name_m]

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] & [name_m]Wilbur[/name_m]

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] & [name_m]Victor[/name_m]

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] & [name_m]Vince[/name_m]

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] & [name_m]Kevin[/name_m]

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] & [name_m]Kelvin[/name_m]

[name_m]Frank[/name_m] is charming. It also works with mid-century names. I’d suggest [name_u]Roy[/name_u], [name_m]Gordon[/name_m], [name_m]Harold[/name_m], [name_m]Bruce[/name_m], [name_u]Stanley[/name_u], [name_m]Martin[/name_m], [name_u]Ray[/name_u], [name_u]Douglas[/name_u], [name_m]Geoffrey[/name_m], [name_m]Richard[/name_m], [name_m]Alan[/name_m], [name_m]Bernard[/name_m], [name_m]Roger[/name_m], [name_u]Earl[/name_u], [name_m]Arnold[/name_m] and [name_m]Warren[/name_m] in this style. I think of these names as strong, friendly, straightforward and familiar.

If a short succinct name is high on your list you might be interested in retro nickname style names. I’d suggest [name_m]Todd[/name_m], [name_m]Hal[/name_m], [name_u]Reggie[/name_u], [name_m]Judd[/name_m], [name_m]Cliff[/name_m], [name_m]Monty[/name_m], [name_u]Duke[/name_u], [name_u]Ronny[/name_u], [name_m]Howie[/name_m], [name_m]Chet[/name_m], [name_u]Jay[/name_u], [name_u]Billy[/name_u], [name_u]Lou[/name_u], [name_m]Ned[/name_m], [name_u]Mack[/name_u], [name_u]Joey[/name_u] and [name_u]Bobby[/name_u].

I think all your current options are great if they grow on you further.

Also, I cant do [name_u]Tony[/name_u] or [name_u]Will[/name_u] (we arent doing family names). And, I dont prefer names that end with “s”, such as [name_u]James[/name_u]. I dont know why…

I do like [name_m]Paul[/name_m], [name_u]Jude[/name_u], [name_u]Sam[/name_u], [name_m]Simon[/name_m], [name_u]Theo[/name_u], and [name_m]Archie[/name_m]! Some of these don’t really strike me as old classic names but they’re nice
I like [name_m]Ralph[/name_m], but cant help but say it in the voice of A [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] [name_u]Story[/name_u] haha.

Oh I like [name_u]Mack[/name_u]! haha honestly, I think I am overthinking it because I like the “strong, friendly straightforward and familiar” MIXED with the “short succinct, retro nickname style”
haha

I also really like [name_m]Alfonso[/name_m] (Ali), that wasnt a quick sell either though.

I should mention, if we do have a girl, her name will be [name_u]Ruby[/name_u]. I really like [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] too but couldnt sell my husband on it.

[name_m]Tom[/name_m] is my favorite for Frank’s brother! [name_m]Just[/name_m] like [name_m]Frank[/name_m], it skips the “Thomas” and goes straight for the [name_m]Tom[/name_m]. I like that for boy names, too!

And [name_u]Jack[/name_u] is one my favorites. [name_f]My[/name_f] grandpa is named [name_u]Jackie[/name_u] and I was surprised to hear it on the playground this week! That might be an option for you if you really love [name_u]Jack[/name_u]. :white_heart:

I do see what you mean but [name_u]Dean[/name_u] is great! You might be able to look pass it??
