I am having a hard time with boys names; nothing seems quite right. See below the names I really really like but don’t quite work for us for some reason or another. Suggestions please? Our daughter is [name]Isla[/name].
*note, yes I totally know some of my reasons for not being 100% behind the names below are RIDICULOUS; I’m just trying to help you see my thinking. And the thing is, I do like these names … about 95%. I don’t need justification for them. I just would really love to find a 100% name.
[name]Charlie[/name] – love this; husband does not. Argh. Probably getting too popular anyway.
[name]Owen[/name] – just seems a little dull somehow (although I do like it); like the debbie downer theme music … wah waaaaaah …
[name]Henry[/name], [name]Jack[/name] – love them, but too popular.
[name]Oliver[/name] nn [name]Olly[/name] & [name]Julian[/name] – slightly too pretentious.
[name]Jasper[/name] – slightly too country.
[name]Peter[/name] – don’t really like the nicknames.
[name]John[/name] nn [name]Johnny[/name] & [name]Frederick[/name] nn [name]Freddie[/name] – slightly too 1950’s leave it to beaver.
[name]Nathaniel[/name] nn [name]Nate[/name] – already a family member.
[name]Felix[/name] – reminds me too much of the cat.
[name]Sam[/name] – feels too girlie now, plus a family member w/ same ln took it.
[name]Daniel[/name] nn [name]Danny[/name] – a very good friend just took this one.
