first baby - name help!

So I’ve recently found out I’m pregnant! We don’t know the gender yet and are probably going to leave it as a surprise so I will do a similar post in the girl’s section:)

I have always been obsessed with names due to having an unusual one myself and have spent many hours scrolling through lists of names on here! As a result I have quite a big list of names I love but am struggling to create combos we would actually use… :frowning: Both my partner and I agree we would prefer an unusual name in the first spot.

Names we (mostly) agree on so far are:

[name_m]Baxter[/name_m] - our favourite
[name_u]Wren[/name_u]
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]
[name_m]Leo[/name_m] - more likely for a middle
[name_m]Casper[/name_m]
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] - again more middle spot
[name_m]Fox[/name_m]
[name_u]Sidney[/name_u]
[name_u]Noel[/name_u] - I’m not a fan
[name_m]Huxley[/name_m]
[name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u]

Any name suggestions and/or combos would be greatly appreciated!

[name_m]Baxter[/name_m] to me isn’t fit for a little boy. It’s more of a name for a dog. I love [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_u]Jude[/name_u], and [name_m]Casper[/name_m].

[name_m]Casper[/name_m] [name_u]Jude[/name_u] is adorable!

I agree with pp, I love [name_m]Archer[/name_m], [name_m]Leo[/name_m], [name_m]Fox[/name_m], [name_m]Evander[/name_m] and [name_u]Jude[/name_u]!

I love [name_m]Baxter[/name_m]! We have thought about [name_m]Baxter[/name_m] as a middle name. I also really like [name_m]Fox[/name_m]:smiley:

When we were looking for names similar to [name_m]Baxter[/name_m] we came across [name_m]Barron[/name_m] which we also liked.

I know a guy called [name_m]Baxter[/name_m]-I think you should go for it!

I like [name_m]Baxter[/name_m] and [name_m]Archer[/name_m] on your list. A suggestion…At this point, I would only focus on choosing a first name that you love as it is the most important and who he will be known as, and once that it chosen it will be easier to find a middle that flows with it. Other suggestions -

[name_m]Gable[/name_m]
[name_m]Marcus[/name_m]
[name_m]Axel[/name_m]
[name_u]Easton[/name_u]
[name_m]Davis[/name_m]
[name_u]Sutton[/name_u]
[name_m]Briggs[/name_m]
[name_m]Gibson[/name_m]/[name_m]Gibb[/name_m]

One I like:
[name_m]Leo[/name_m] - as a first
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] - as a first
[name_m]Evander[/name_m]
[name_u]Jude[/name_u]

Not crazy about
[name_m]Baxter[/name_m], [name_u]Noel[/name_u] & [name_m]Huxley[/name_m] - sound like names of old men
[name_u]Wren[/name_u] & [name_u]Sidney[/name_u] - used for girls more
[name_m]Casper[/name_m] - the ghost taunts could border on bullying
[name_m]Archer[/name_m] & [name_m]Fox[/name_m] - not a fan of word names

From your list, I like…

[name_u]Wren[/name_u] [name_m]Baxter[/name_m]
[name_m]Fox[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_m]Evander[/name_m] [name_m]Fox[/name_m] - my favourite!!

A few other ideas for you…
