Favourite BOYS names!

Making a girls list was fun but I find boys names a little more difficult. Yet, when I find something I do like I tend to really like it.


Less sure of/probably more likely as a MN:

I like [name]Dylan[/name], [name]Connor[/name], [name]Mateo[/name] and [name]Elijah[/name] (prefer [name]Elias[/name])…

[name]Dylan[/name]-- not my favorite, but I do get why people like it
[name]Connor[/name]-- ditto ^
[name]Francis[/name]-- don’t like it at all, sorry
[name]Leo[/name]-- [name]LOVE[/name]!! I absolutely adore [name]Leo[/name]!
[name]Max[/name]-- [name]Love[/name] it again!
[name]Alexander[/name]-- I do very much like [name]Alexander[/name], but dislike [name]Alex[/name]!

Less sure of/probably more likely as a MN:
[name]Benjamin[/name]-- I like [name]Benjamin[/name]. My cousin had a baby in [name]March[/name] with this name and calls him [name]Ben[/name]
[name]Mateo[/name]-- not a fan
[name]Alexis[/name]-- too girly!
[name]David[/name]-- wwwaaayy too common
[name]Amato[/name]-- ? with how I’m pronouncing it, it sounds like the end of tomato when you say it one of the ways
[name]Elijah[/name]-- Like, but prefer the sound of [name]Elias[/name] or just [name]Eli[/name]

Favorites on your list-- [name]Leo[/name] & [name]Max[/name]

I agree that [name]David[/name] is quite common but I’ve always thought Davids seem quite nice. It also means beloved which I think is lovely so I’d probably use it as a MN. [name]Amato[/name] means beloved too and is pronounced [name]Ah[/name]-Mah-toe so it could be shortened to [name]Matt[/name].

And [name]Leo[/name] and [name]Max[/name] are nice right. They’d make good (if a little troublesome) brothers.

I am very particular on the boys names. My list hardly ever changes, whether it’s popular, trendy, or not - it has been this way for 10 years or more. For girls, I like uncommon names, but boys are different.

[name]Jacob[/name] - I am biased b/c it’s my son’s name, but knowing now what I didn’t know then - I wouldn’t have chosen it for him.
[name]Alexander[/name] - probably my absolute favorite boy’s name, but hubby would never let me use b/c he didn’t like [name]Alex[/name]. I have liked this name since I was little.
[name]Christopher[/name] - wanted this name for this baby if she was a boy
[name]Mason[/name] - the most recent addition to my list
