Enchanted Names

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries!
I have been a long-time lurker, but only recently created an account now that I am pregnant with a little man. My SO and I can’t seem to find a name we both agree on. They enjoy more common names, such as [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]. I do enjoy [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], but I want something that has a magical, one-of-the-kind element to it. Where our little one would definitely not have to go by his last initial. We both agree that we enjoy unisex names, specifically ones that lean a little more towards male. I don’t like word names either, since I grew up with a word name and I hated it.
After many searching without anything that feels…right…we figured we would turn to the baby name experts.
Thank you guys in advance!

An enchanting, magical, one-of-a-kind name. Possibly unisex leaning towards male. Let’s see what we can do!

[name_m]Aramis[/name_m]

[name_u]Auberon[/name_u] or [name_u]Oberon[/name_u] -means “bearlike”

[name_m]Bayard[/name_m]

Ender

[name_m]Emilien[/name_m] -not unisex, but has that soft sound that makes it almost feel like a unisex name because of similar girls names ([name_f]Emilienne[/name_f], [name_f]Emily[/name_f], [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f])

Esben

Faramir

Faramond

[name_m]Ferris[/name_m]

[name_u]Florian[/name_u] -related to the word ”flowering”

[name_m]Jesper[/name_m] -means “treasurer”

[name_m]Laurent[/name_m]

[name_f]Marinell[/name_f]

[name_f]Milano[/name_f] -an enchanting name referring to an enchanting city

[name_u]Regin[/name_u]

Remiel -an angelic name

[name_u]Robin[/name_u] -this name always feels a little like a fairytale to me, maybe because of [name_u]Robin[/name_u] Hood

[name_u]Seren[/name_u] -means ‘star’ which is enchanting in its self!

[name_m]Zigmund[/name_m]

Is there any here that strike your fancy just a little even? Are these a bit too far out maybe? I hope you find what you’re looking for!

enchanted - one-of-a-kind - unisex(ish)…

[name_u]Teagan[/name_u]
[name_m]Adrian[/name_m]
[name_u]Darcy[/name_u]
[name_f]Carys[/name_f]
[name_u]Quincy[/name_u]
[name_u]Zephyr[/name_u]
[name_u]Mercer[/name_u]
[name_u]Cato[/name_u]

I just wanted to add that I can completely relate to the situation where you and your SO have completely different name styles! I’m facing that too, although we haven’t had a chance to name a child yet. My style of names is like the names in my signature, his style is [name_f]Annie[/name_f], [name_m]Charles[/name_m], [name_m]Luke[/name_m], [name_u]Brooke[/name_u], almost anything common and classic!
I’m excited to see what you can agree on.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] the ideas coming out of this thread!

I love [name_m]Bartolomeo[/name_m]. What about just Tolomeo? Which I think is just one of the very coolest sounding and looking names around. It’s an Italian variation on [name_m]Ptolemy[/name_m].

I second [name_m]Nicodemus[/name_m], nn [name_u]Nico[/name_u]. I think that’s a great compromise between your two styles. Perhaps [name_m]Nicodem[/name_m] or Nicodeme would be even more “enchanted.”

With [name_m]Salvador[/name_m] on the table, do you also like [name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m]? [name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m] is so adventurous and magical to me (a la [name_f]Tempest[/name_f]). [name_m]Vidal[/name_m] or [name_m]Vidale[/name_m] or [name_m]Videlio[/name_m]?

[name_m]Lysander[/name_m] nn [name_m]Xander[/name_m] or even [name_u]Sasha[/name_u]… I haven’t seen that done and it may be more of a stretch than some, but in my book [name_m]Lysander[/name_m] could be stretched to [name_u]Sasha[/name_u], which would still give it the unisex vibe, too.

Some I’m adding to my list:
[name_m]Nicodemus[/name_m]
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]
[name_u]Lennox[/name_u]
[name_u]August[/name_u]
[name_m]Valor[/name_m]
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u]
[name_m]Dashiell[/name_m]
[name_m]Rhett[/name_m]
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m]
[name_u]Valentine[/name_u]
[name_m]Isidore[/name_m]
[name_m]Casimir[/name_m]
[name_m]Amadeus[/name_m]
[name_m]Icarus[/name_m]
Tolomeo
[name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m] (Now that the name was mentioned, I swear I had a goldfish named [name_m]Ferdinand[/name_m] when I was 10 or so)
[name_m]Videlio[/name_m]


Somewhere there’s a quote about how you didn’t realize how many people irritate you until you try to name a child…I’m realizing that right now! I’ll like and name and then remember someone or something it reminds me of :rolleyes::smiley: Either that, or one of our many family members already used the name

Thank you guys so much, I didn’t expect so much help and we really do appreciate it!

I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] the suggestion of [name_u]Robin[/name_u] because it definitely has a magical air to it, but seems classic as well, possibly forming a nice compromise. Others suggestions:

[name_u]Sasha[/name_u]
[name_u]Rey[/name_u]
[name_u]Darcy[/name_u]
[name_u]Cary[/name_u]
[name_u]Ariel[/name_u]
[name_m]Castiel[/name_m]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u]
[name_f]Cypress[/name_f]
[name_m]Jupiter[/name_m]

Best of luck!!!

Some names that come to mind…

[name_m]Emrys[/name_m] - [name_u]Remy[/name_u]
[name_m]Wesley[/name_m] - [name_m]Wes[/name_m]
[name_m]Aurelio[/name_m] - [name_u]Ari[/name_u]
[name_u]Ellis[/name_u] - [name_m]Eli[/name_m]
[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m] - [name_m]Aro[/name_m]
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m] - [name_m]Cas[/name_m]
[name_u]Cato[/name_u]

My first thought was [name_m]Aurelius[/name_m].
I’m a sucker for that name! With nn [name_u]Elis[/name_u] / [name_u]Ellis[/name_u].

But [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] on it’s own has a lot of history, is unisex leaning towards male with a lovely meaning of kind hearted and good natured.

I’ve loved [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] ever since watching The Age of [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]. The man she falls in love with is [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] [name_m]Jones[/name_m] - charming, intelligent, handsome…totally made the name [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] for me! :slight_smile:

[name_m]Eli[/name_m] could be used as a nn for [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] (not that it needs one). Another lovely, history rich name!!

Other suggestions:

[name_m]Tiberius[/name_m] or [name_m]Tibalt[/name_m] / [name_m]Tybalt[/name_m]

I’m not sure if these hit the “enchanting” mark, but they feel equal parts magical and still really wearable to me… perhaps these are some you can agree on:
