[name_u]Julian[/name_u]
[name_u]Henry[/name_u]
[name_u]Leo[/name_u]
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u]
[name_m]Matthew[/name_m]

[name_u]Julian[/name_u]- I love it, classic and refreshing.
[name_u]Henry[/name_u]- Popular but cute! Almost too cute but still my second favourite.
[name_u]Leo[/name_u]- I love! But quite short so prefer [name_m]Leon[/name_m].
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u]- I like it but [name_m]Ben[/name_m] is very neutral to me.
[name_m]Matthew[/name_m]- Also nice enough but I don’t connect with [name_m]Matt[/name_m].

They’re all pretty solid boy names! Not my style, but they’re nice :slight_smile: [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] is quite dated to me, but the others feel pretty classic (maybe with the exception of [name_u]Leo[/name_u] being rather trendy right now).

[name_u]Julian[/name_u] – gentle and sophisticated
[name_u]Leo[/name_u] – short and sweet, though quite common
[name_u]Henry[/name_u] – sweet and friendly, somewhat trendy
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] – strong classic, but not overly exciting
[name_m]Matthew[/name_m] – fine, but dated and lacklustre

[name_u]Henry[/name_u]
[name_u]Julian[/name_u]

I love all of these names ! For me I would use any of them in a heart beat and if I’m ranking them it would be based on how many I know. If I know less little people with that name the higher the rank

Best - [name_u]Henry[/name_u] reminds me of my dad, so I’m biased, but it also sounds like such a sweet, cuddly teddy-bear name
[name_u]Leo[/name_u] I love this name, it is so sweet sounding, more in a feline way than [name_u]Henry[/name_u]
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] this has always reminded me of old-school literary [name_u]New[/name_u] Orleans, dark and spooky and romantic
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] this is a family name for my husband times like 10 (there are seriously more alive than I can remember and twice that who have passed on) and so that’s really all I think of. [name_m]Ben[/name_m] is a supper cute if overdone name that can be more easily reached imo in more creative ways
Worst - [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] I feel very bleh about this name, not to the point I think it’s a bad name, it just feels very well used, like an old sweater. Nothing wrong with it and still perfectly usable, just a little out of style and worn-out

[name_m]Favorite[/name_m] 1 - [name_u]Henry[/name_u]
2 - [name_u]Leo[/name_u]
3 - [name_u]Julian[/name_u]
4 - [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u]
Least favorite - [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]

[name_u]Henry[/name_u] is spunky. It feels like a classic and is making a come back!
[name_u]Leo[/name_u] is fun! I prefer it as a nickname but I like the sound of it.
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] is alright. I don’t love it I don’t hate it.
Bejamin feels very over done. I know SO MANY Ben’s.
[name_m]Matthew[/name_m] again is very over done. Any guy I’ve met named matthew I haven’t liked so I just have a bad association with the name :rofl:

    tied - [name_u]Julian[/name_u] and [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]

I love both [name_u]Henry[/name_u] and [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u], but I think [name_m]Ben[/name_m] is just a tad bit overdone, so I ranked [name_u]Henry[/name_u] first. They’re both classic and warm.

[name_u]Leo[/name_u] is fine, but my least favorite of all the -o names. It is spunky, though!

I’m not a fan of [name_u]Julian[/name_u], but I like nicknames [name_u]Jude[/name_u], [name_u]Jules[/name_u] and [name_u]Juli[/name_u]. [name_m]Matt[/name_m] feels dated, but I think [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] as a whole is nice. So they’re tied depending on if you use nicknames or not!

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

[name_f]Lovely[/name_f] list!

Here is my favorite to least favorite:

Julian-I love love love [name_u]Julian[/name_u]. It’s been in my top five since about the turn of the century. :joy: It’s smart & friendly & classic & just the right amount of posh. I love the nn [name_u]Jude[/name_u] too. [name_u]Julian[/name_u] is supposedly a bit popular according to the SSA list, but I’m not positive that I’ve ever met one in real life.

Matthew-This has been one of my favorites since high school too, but not top five anymore. But I do think that it’s a beautiful name. It sounds so sweet & handsome. I just don’t care a ton for [name_m]Matt[/name_m], which I don’t know whether or not it’d be unavoidable.

Henry-I do love [name_u]Henry[/name_u]. It’s charming & friendly too. It’s lost a little charm, because it’s basically what every little boy is called in my area. I love the nn [name_m]Hank[/name_m].

Benjamin-Another beautiful classic choice. And it has the sweet nns of [name_m]Ben[/name_m] or [name_m]Benny[/name_m]. A bit popular as well, but timeless.

Leo-Really cute & a little quirky. Getting popular as well, but not too bad. I like it a lot, just not as classic as the rest of these.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps.:slight_smile:
