Good names?

I am currently loving these names for boys:
[name_m]Edison[/name_m](I don’t like the nn [name_m]Eddy[/name_m] but I can’t think of an alternative)
[name_m]Fisher[/name_m](might just keep this for a pet instead of a baby)
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]( the more I say it the girlier it sounds)
[name_m]Otto[/name_m]( I would love this as a nn but for what name?)
[name_m]Franklin[/name_m](I love [name_m]Link[/name_m] as a nn for this one)

Any input on my names?:slight_smile:

You might like [name_u]Ellison[/name_u] instead of [name_m]Edison[/name_m], to avoid [name_m]Eddy[/name_m]?

I like [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], [name_m]Lucas[/name_m], [name_u]Finn[/name_u], and [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] (also [name_m]Harrington[/name_m]) and [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]. I have heard [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] on a girl, but I don’t think it sounds girly at all. Really imo, I feel it sounds more masculine, though with all surnames or occupational names I believe they are unisex.

[name_u]Love[/name_u]: [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] and [name_m]Otto[/name_m]

Like: [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], [name_m]Edison[/name_m], [name_f]Grier[/name_f], and [name_m]Franklin[/name_m]

Dislike: [name_m]Lucas[/name_m], [name_m]Harrison[/name_m], [name_u]Hudson[/name_u], Funn, [name_m]Fisher[/name_m], [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u], and [name_m]Lawson[/name_m]

What about [name_u]Addison[/name_u] instead of [name_m]Edison[/name_m]? Or you could call him [name_m]Ned[/name_m], [name_u]Desi[/name_u], or just no nickname at all. [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] is not in the slightest bit feminine and if I met a girl named [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] I’d be really taken aback. I dislike like the name [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] in general (all I hear is soy-er) but I’d rather see it on a boy. If any name on your list is feminine, it’s [name_f]Grier[/name_f], but I am in the minority I actually like [name_f]Greer[/name_f] (this spelling) on a boy.

[name_m]Oliver[/name_m]: Not to common, pretty good.
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m]: Depending on personality, you might want to give the NN [name_u]Theo[/name_u] instead of [name_u]Teddy[/name_u].
[name_m]Lucas[/name_m]: NN [name_m]Luke[/name_m], but I see it as very popular.
[name_m]Edison[/name_m]:[name_m]Don[/name_m]'t have a lot of input, not my favorite.
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m]: I knew someone named this-he got teased an lot on “[name_m]Harry[/name_m].”
[name_u]Hudson[/name_u]: This is one of my favorite names, not a lot of input otherwise.
[name_u]Finn[/name_u]:I’m reminded of fish when I see this.
[name_m]Fisher[/name_m]: ^ Ditto
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]: I don’t see it as a girl name at all, but that’s just me.
[name_f]Grier[/name_f]: Seems like a girl name.
[name_m]Lawson[/name_m]: I like it, but prefer [name_m]Dawson[/name_m].
[name_m]Franklin[/name_m]:Sounds creepy, but not bad otherwise.
Overall they seem like pretty good choices!

My favorites are [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] (my son, but his nn is [name_u]Theo[/name_u]), [name_m]Harrison[/name_m], and [name_m]Otto[/name_m]. I don’t think [name_m]Otto[/name_m] needs to be a nn for anything. For [name_m]Edison[/name_m], you could use the nn [name_m]Ned[/name_m].

[name_m]Ned[/name_m] or even [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] are nice for [name_m]Edison[/name_m], or how about [name_u]Sonny[/name_u]?

My favourites on your list are [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], [name_u]Finn[/name_u] and [name_m]Otto[/name_m].

If you’d prefer [name_m]Otto[/name_m] as a nickname, how about [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] + a T- middle: [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m], [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]/[name_u]Teddy[/name_u], [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] [name_m]Tadhg[/name_m]… Or how about [name_m]Otis[/name_m] or [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] nn [name_m]Otto[/name_m]?

I like quite a few of these, especially [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] with the nickname “[name_u]Ollie[/name_u].” It’s so sweet on a little kid but ages so well. It is very common, though. I also like [name_u]Hudson[/name_u], [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u], and [name_m]Theodore[/name_m], though I personally prefer the nickname “[name_u]Theo[/name_u]” to “[name_u]Teddy[/name_u]” – [name_u]Teddy[/name_u] is so cute but I can’t see it aging well.
