FN for Arlo?

Hi berries!

For the longest time I was not impressed with [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], but over the past couple of weeks, he’s really been growing on me, especially as a way to honor my grandma (Arl3n3). Because of that, I’m not sure about using him up front, as it might be a bit confusing, but I love him as a middle. What names work as a FN for [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]? From my own current list, so far I’ve been toying around with [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] or [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], but, much as I like the look of [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], I wonder if it’s too tongue-twistery to say? (Also wondering about [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], now that I think of it; he’s super fun, and [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] would honor my grandma, too.)

Anyway, what FNs would you recommend to go with the MN [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]?

Thank you, berries!

I like [name_m]Jack[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] from your list, or [name_u]Augustine[/name_u] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]. [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] and [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] are great names too. I like [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m], but think the others flow better. [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] is cool.

I think [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] is super sweet, but understand your concerns. [name_m]Jack[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] or [name_m]Judah[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] would be super handsome. I also like [name_m]Eoghan[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]. [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] and [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] are nice names as well. Not the biggest fan of [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] or [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m]. They just seem like a lot and what would the little guy go by, [name_m]Barney[/name_m]? [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u], not a bad choice, and I like [name_u]Perry[/name_u] as a nickname, but it might be a lot of R with [name_u]Arlo[/name_u].

My dream boys name is [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]. :heart_eyes: If only my OH could love [name_u]Lawrence[/name_u]- I think [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] is pretty versatile.
[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] maybe? [name_u]Love[/name_u] that :slightly_smiling_face:

Ditto @EJK1720.

Barnabas [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] is dreamy- I love it! [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] is wonderful too

[name_m]Finnegan[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] is the first name that comes to mind.

I like [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]!

[name_m]Barthelemy[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] perhaps?

[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], [name_m]Bastian[/name_m], [name_m]Caspian[/name_m], [name_m]Julius[/name_m], [name_m]Amadeus[/name_m], Nicodemus …

Thank you, everyone! Is [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_u]Christian[/name_u] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] any better? [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_u]Christian[/name_u] is my tentative [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] combo right now, and I haven’t liked other shorter family names after [name_u]Christian[/name_u] ([name_m]Jack[/name_m]/James/Grey/Beck), so I’m wondering if the [name_u]Christian[/name_u] in between solves the concerns? It is pretty long but my old [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] combo ([name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_u]Emerson[/name_u] [name_m]Jack[/name_m]!) was also long lol. ([name_u]Or[/name_u] [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_m]Martin[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]? [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] [name_m]Martin[/name_m] is my backup atm.)

@Kenny22 - if I had a [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m], he’d go by [name_m]Ben[/name_m] or [name_m]Barnes[/name_m], honestly. [name_m]Barney[/name_m] is not my thing. :sweat_smile: I love the idea of a little [name_m]Fitz[/name_m], though, but if I did he’d be [name_m]Fitzwilliam[/name_m] for my undying love for Pride & Prejudice lol. [name_m]Fitzwilliam[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]? I’m seriously considering adding [name_m]Desmond[/name_m] to my list, too, so I’ll have to consider [name_m]Desmond[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] for sure! He’s pretty funky and fun.

@heloise_chrissa - ooh, I like [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], but am pretty tied to [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_u]Eden[/name_u] ([name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]’s also a family name). I might consider [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], but I am so in love with the [name_m]Caspar[/name_m] + [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] + [name_u]Eden[/name_u] combo. [name_m]Samson[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] is cool, too, although I’m not sure I could give up [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] for [name_m]Sampson[/name_m]/Samson…

@Greyblue - I’m glad you like [name_m]Barnabas[/name_m] and [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] with [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]! I’m also super loving [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] [name_m]Linus[/name_m], so I’m not sure which I’d use if I used [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u], but it’s good to have the vote of confidence. :sweat_smile:

@Dechen - Thanks! [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] might have a shot; I don’t currently have [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] on my list but love [name_m]Seb[/name_m]/Sebby, and [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] has sweet ties to my grandma. I love [name_m]Nicodemus[/name_m] but don’t have the courage to use him up front. And [name_m]Barthelemy[/name_m] is so cool but I think that’d be met with even more side-eye than [name_m]Bartholomew[/name_m] here. :rofl:
