Boys names so far

This is our list of favourite boys’ names so far.


It has taken us years to even come up with a short list- our daughter is 2 and we didn’t have one single boys name agreed on in case her scan was wrong and we had a boy two years ago lol! So I’m pleased we have some boy options to chew on now, and still have a few months til we can find out what we are having.

What do you think of our names? What middle names would you suggest with them? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you have any other suggestions? (Many, many names are ruled out because they belong to family - DH seems to have a boy dominant family!)

I like [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] and [name_m]Elijah[/name_m].

[name_m]Joseph[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] sounds good…
[name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] sounds good…
[name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] sounds good…

[name_m]Just[/name_m] off the top of my head :slight_smile:

I love [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] and [name_m]Nathan[/name_m]. [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] sounds good as a combo too. I also like [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u].
What is your daughter’s name? Number of syllables in the last name? Maybe that would help further suggestions. Good luck!

I liike [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m], [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], or [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m].

Other suggestions:
[name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m], [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] [name_m]Andrew[/name_m],
[name_m]Nathan[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u],
[name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Ethan[/name_m], [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u],
[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]Andrew[/name_m], [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m].

I see you gravitating towards Biblical /Hebrew names, so I’ll suggest some of my favorites:

[name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] is one of my favorites. I think [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] [name_m]Elijah[/name_m] sounds good. I also like [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] and [name_m]Joseph[/name_m].

You have some wonderful names on your list. I would rate them as follows:
