Woah I totally agree with your thoughts!
[name_m]Jonah[/name_m] does sound more homey, less mysterious. I think that’s whats throwing me with it, you nailed it!! But its still so cute. I saw [name_u]Easton[/name_u] recently and thought it was kinda cute, but it holds 0 significance and the more I hear it, im blah on it. I was thinking [name_m]Jonah[/name_m] [name_u]River[/name_u] also! Much better, lets get [name_u]Easton[/name_u] outta here. My one worry with [name_m]Jonah[/name_m] is: I would be so sad for [name_m]Joe[/name_m] to be a nn. Nothing wrong with [name_m]Joe[/name_m], its just…its [name_m]Joe[/name_m]. I like that [name_m]Jonah[/name_m] feels approachable and I could see it on a child, teen, and grown man.
[name_u]Shia[/name_u]- Hahaha. I may be the only Lebouf fan. I don’t mind him, but I do mind everyone not liking the name because of him. Too bad, its an interesting name. My SO hates it, lol. Hes like “ill call him something else”
[name_u]River[/name_u]- There is just something about this name for me. I love it. I would even take [name_u]River[/name_u] [name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]'s middle name- [name_u]Jude[/name_u]. Not sure how SO feels on this one.
[name_m]Ethan[/name_m]- Yes exactly! I hear the other names then im like andddddd ethan. Its a great name, but its not working for me.
[name_u]Luca[/name_u]- I think I could change his thoughts on this. And I don’t mind [name_m]Luke[/name_m].
[name_m]Holden[/name_m]- Hahaha, my friend was like- [name_m]Holden[/name_m] was a whiny entitled emo kid. I guess I just identified with him when I was a teenager myself. Another friend said he would be made fun of, since the book is always read in high school.
[name_m]Koa[/name_m]- I think its so pretty, but I having a hard time picturing it. When I say it out-loud I don’t get any gut feeling about it.
Thanks sooooo much for your insights!! Really truly helps. From your list, I had a total thing for [name_u]Kai[/name_u], [name_u]Shea[/name_u], and [name_m]Leo[/name_m]! [name_m]Leo[/name_m] is my friends dog and I cant un-see it. [name_m]Friend[/name_m] has a bay [name_u]Kai[/name_u]. [name_u]Shea[/name_u] now reminds me of [name_u]Shea[/name_u] from Game of Thrones.
Oh and to add, my SO has a daughter from a previous marriage and her name is [name_f]Amelie[/name_f].
