I love [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] ([name_m]Nate[/name_m])! I also really like [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] (but with no nickname, I don’t think [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] needs it) and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]/[name_u]Theo[/name_u] (but I think it’s getting too popular). And [name_m]Felix[/name_m] is one of my favorites.

I really like [name_u]Charlie[/name_u] as a standalone name. I think it’s strong and classic. While it’s being used for girls rather often now, I think it will always be a boy’s name first!

I think a lot of traditional surnames could fit what you’re looking for, though they may be a little less “classic,” but still have a traditional feel. Some thoughts:

[name_m]Miller[/name_m] (I have a friend with a son named this and I love it!)

I really like [name_u]Theo[/name_u] and am Partial to [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] as well. my hubby wouldn’t go for [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] which i totally love, but I still sort of got what i wanted because we named him [name_m]Nathan[/name_m]. So im a little biased having one already XD its a great name. Also the above suggestion of [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m] i think is a great one. And again if hubby would go for it, I would totally use that one too. lol

I like all of the above names. A few more like this that you might like:


I love [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], [name_m]Isaac[/name_m], and [name_m]Vincent[/name_m] from your list. My favorite boy name is [name_m]Calvin[/name_m], nicknamed [name_u]Cal[/name_u], and I think that fits very well with your style. I can’t speak to its popularity in the UK as I live in the US, but I think it fits what you were describing.

Thanks for the feedback everyone so far. I also really like [name_m]Victor[/name_m], [name_u]Francis[/name_u], [name_m]Richard[/name_m], [name_u]Stanley[/name_u] and [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]. Honestly I love all these names hence why it’s so difficult to narrow my list down!

I like [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m], [name_m]Henry[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_m]Felix[/name_m]

[name_m]Hawthorne[/name_m] nn [name_m]Thor[/name_m]?

I love:
