Boys-Imagery: Snow, northern lights, rugged beauty; bright stars and frozen lakes

I thought I’d post this here too, since I got such wonderful responses on the girl’s name thread.
The credit of the imagery in the title goes to @ashthedreamer and @roseofjune.
I’m interested (mostly curious for boys names as I have a few solid names that I absolutely love) in names that fit this imagery. Individual names or combos. Nothing too popular or common. Names that would make the perfect brother name to a potential [name_f]Azura[/name_f] [name_f]Star[/name_f] or Hespera Zaffre.
My favourite boys names that I feel like fit are [name_m]Forrester[/name_m] [name_u]North[/name_u], [name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_u]Sky[/name_u], [name_m]Arrow[/name_m], [name_f]Jade[/name_f], [name_u]River[/name_u], [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u], [name_m]Crosby[/name_m], [name_u]Oakley[/name_u], [name_m]Bowman[/name_m], [name_m]Atlas[/name_m], [name_u]Harper[/name_u] and [name_u]Indigo[/name_u] (and more!!).
What other boys names do you feel fit this imagery and style?

[name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Mars[/name_u]? :slight_smile:

[name_u]Orion[/name_u], but of course, I’m partial.

I have [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] [name_u]Indigo[/name_u] on my list. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] feels windy and icy to me even though the meaning isnt

[name_m]Crispin[/name_m] [name_u]Orion[/name_u]
[name_m]Finnian[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m]
Isambard [name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_u]Robin[/name_u] Edur
[name_m]Swithin[/name_m] [name_m]Albus[/name_m]
Timur Borealis
[name_m]Sirius[/name_m] [name_u]Finn[/name_u]
[name_m]Peredur[/name_m] [name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_u]Frost[/name_u] [name_f]Celestine[/name_f]
[name_m]Kaspar[/name_m] Alpin
[name_m]Viggo[/name_m] [name_m]Altair[/name_m]
Bjorn Polaris
Ronan Boreas
Magnus Azhar
Aquilo Moss

A lot of Icelandic names have this imagery, unsurprising since it is pretty much a description of the country in winter. [name_m]Sindri[/name_m] (glittering), [name_f]Andri[/name_f] (skier), ”sar (ice spike), Snævar (snow warrior), for example.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the suggestion of [name_m]Finnian[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] above! And Boreas.

[name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_u]Vale[/name_u]
[name_u]Cedar[/name_u] [name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] [name_u]Spruce[/name_u]


Strongly agree with the suggestions of [name_m]Crispin[/name_m], [name_u]Orion[/name_u] & [name_m]Loch[/name_m].

[name_m]Sirius[/name_m] [name_m]Pine[/name_m]
[name_m]Oskar[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m]
[name_m]Conan[/name_m] [name_u]Ever[/name_u]
Halvor [name_u]North[/name_u]
[name_u]Laken[/name_u] Borealis
[name_m]Phelan[/name_m] [name_f]Snow[/name_f]
[name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_f]Aster[/name_f]
[name_u]Noel[/name_u] [name_m]Jack[/name_m]
[name_m]Whittaker[/name_m] [name_f]Alaska[/name_f]

Also [name_f]Lumi[/name_f], [name_u]Ember[/name_u], and [name_f]Elke[/name_f], for girls, but not sure if it’s too reminiscent of the animal. (Sorry if these were mentioned already.

i really like the following suggestions from pp:

[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] (love the suggestion of [name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Mars[/name_u])

I like the following for this imagery (apologies for any repeats):


Possible combinations:

[name_m]Liev[/name_m] [name_u]Orion[/name_u]
[name_m]Liev[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m]
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u] [name_m]Liev[/name_m]
[name_m]Anders[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_m]Emrys[/name_m] [name_m]Wilder[/name_m]
[name_u]Cerulean[/name_u] [name_m]Fox[/name_m]

[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_m]Liev[/name_m]


Came here to post some suggestions but they’ve already been mentioned, haha! Btw, I love your theme!

I’m doing so bad with replying! I started out so well on the girls thread, but eventually its hard to keep up! I do appreciate all the ideas tho!

@stellarevolution [name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Mars[/name_u] is handsome. I do love [name_m]Caspian[/name_m], and the darling nn Caz! I like the idea of [name_u]Mars[/name_u], the dark night/planet feel, but the sound I don’t quite love.

@moonkai I adore your sons name. It is the epitome of what I want in my names. A foresty, starry, natural feel and association. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] [name_u]Indigo[/name_u], is so handsome. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] always makes me think of cirrus clouds, maybe that’s why it has that windy, natural feel? I love that. [name_u]Indigo[/name_u] is on my list too!

@a_r I love [name_m]Wolf[/name_m], [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_u]Robin[/name_u], Borealis and [name_f]Celestin[/name_f]… Much handsomeness. I like the idea of [name_u]Frost[/name_u], Polaris and [name_m]Sirius[/name_m]. They have such cool meaning and associations. But in reality, I doubt I’d use them. Azhar and [name_m]Aquilo[/name_m] really intrigue me.

@jackal Beautiful meanings! I love the sound of [name_m]Sindri[/name_m], [name_f]Andri[/name_f] and ”sar. That glittering meaning is just so appealing to me!

@ceryle [name_u]Brighton[/name_u] [name_u]Vale[/name_u] is so handsome! I love [name_u]Vale[/name_u], although he’s never made it to my short list. I’d never associated [name_u]Vale[/name_u] with this kind of imagery before!

@lovemysweeties I like alot of those names! [name_u]Cedar[/name_u], [name_m]Pine[/name_m], [name_u]Oakley[/name_u] and [name_f]Arbor[/name_f] stand out to me especially. Somehow I’m drawn to the names that more obviously fit the imagery. Actual nature names and celestial names as opposed to other names that just have the sound or image that fits.
With Snowden, I keep hearing snowed in, LOL! Winterhawk is interesting, I quite like it. I love [name_u]Winter[/name_u] on a boy, and bird names, yes! Maybe it’s a liiittle over the top tho.

@columbiacharm I don’t think I’d use many (if any) of the names I listed either, but they were fun to think up.
[name_m]Aquilo[/name_m] is the [name_m]Roman[/name_m] equivalent to Boreas (Greek god of the [name_u]North[/name_u] or NE wind)
Azhar is an Arabic name that apparently means clear/shining/luminous.

What GORGEOUS imagery! I haven’t yet read all the posts but what comes to mind is:

[name_m]Orson[/name_m] [name_m]Thoreau[/name_m]! <3

I love the name [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] for the very reason that it draws up images of rugged beauty and manliness. It’s ardent, but gentle. I’ll probably use it as a middle name someday!

@jalila13 Wonderful, wonderful combos! I love [name_m]Sirius[/name_m] [name_m]Pine[/name_m], Halvor [name_u]North[/name_u], [name_u]Laken[/name_u] Borealis, [name_m]Phelan[/name_m] [name_f]Snow[/name_f] and [name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_f]Aster[/name_f]. [name_u]Laken[/name_u] Borealis especially stands out to me, so breathtakingly natural and unexpected, yet completely recognizable. I also love [name_m]Wolf[/name_m] and [name_u]Ever[/name_u]! And [name_f]Alaska[/name_f] is brilliant for a boy! I’d never considered it as a boys name before, but why not!
I love [name_f]Lumi[/name_f], [name_u]Ember[/name_u] and [name_f]Elke[/name_f] too. [name_f]Elke[/name_f] is maybe a little close to elk, but I like the connection! Maybe just usable as a middle name…

@lulu82 [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_m]Emrys[/name_m]! [name_m]Evander[/name_m] has been a long time favourite of mine, too. I like the idea of [name_u]Cerulean[/name_u], but something about the sound is always a little bit awkward when I try to say it.
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u] is such a handsome combo.

@shanade213 [name_m]Fox[/name_m] and [name_u]North[/name_u] are on my short list already :). [name_m]Koda[/name_m] and [name_m]Thor[/name_m] are cool ideas! [name_m]Night[/name_m] and [name_f]Kodiak[/name_f] are super amazing too, although maybe a little less realistic for me. I like the bear connection to [name_f]Kodiak[/name_f] so much. [name_f]Kodiak[/name_f] nn [name_m]Koda[/name_m] maybe?

@roseofjune Thank you for showing your interest at least! I do appreciate that, and I’d love to hear any ideas from you if you think of something that hasn’t been mentioned :).

@mummamarigold Thank you! But I can’t take all the credit, I would never have come up with quite the imagery or all these names without Nameberry;)! [name_m]Orson[/name_m] [name_m]Thoreau[/name_m] is handsome. Very regal.

@sroseryan Oh, I love that image with [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]! Rugged yet gentle. I would love to have that in my boys names, I think that is a little bit the element I try for. Outdoorsy and rugged, yet natural and somewhat down to earth (literally lol). Names that have a lot of potential.

I’m set on [name_m]Stone[/name_m] as a middle name for this!!

[name_m]Soren[/name_m] [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
[name_m]Oskar[/name_m] [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
[name_m]Emrys[/name_m] [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
Finnur [name_m]Stone[/name_m]
…maybe not rugged enough.

[name_m]Otto[/name_m] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]
[name_m]Klaus[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m]
[name_m]Angus[/name_m] [name_m]Bear[/name_m]
[name_m]Gallagher[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m]
[name_u]Aidan[/name_u] [name_m]Bjorn[/name_m]
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] [name_f]Firth[/name_f]
[name_u]Raven[/name_u] [name_m]Magnus[/name_m]
[name_m]Anselm[/name_m] [name_m]Atlas[/name_m]
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u] [name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_m]Kian[/name_m] [name_f]Garnet[/name_f]
[name_f]Aster[/name_f] [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u]
[name_u]Halcyon[/name_u] [name_m]Ivar[/name_m]
[name_m]Zevi[/name_m] [name_m]Wilder[/name_m]
[name_u]Elias[/name_u] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m]
[name_m]Struan[/name_m] [name_u]Elm[/name_u]
[name_m]Arran[/name_m] [name_m]Silas[/name_m]
Finnur [name_m]Atlas[/name_m]
[name_m]Conall[/name_m] [name_m]Wolf[/name_m]
… any mix of those would be great I think (tried to avoid repeats)

[name_m]Orson[/name_m] means ‘baby cub’, so I think it fits!
