Help! I don't like ANY boy's names :(

I am due with baby #2 in [name_u]March[/name_u], and we have the anatomy ultrasound in a few days. I really want to have the name set soon after we find out if the baby is a boy or a girl!!

Our first son is named [name_m]Peter[/name_m]. We love strong, classic, traditional names. But I also love quirky, old-man type names, too. I tend to dislike names that are “trendy” or made-up sounding. If the baby is a girl, we are going to go with [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]. But I am having the hardest time with a boy’s name!! I keep looking through all of the lists and hoping that I’ve missed the “perfect” name, but I am starting to get discouraged :frowning: I want to love the name, and I am just not loving anything.

Here are names that we like, but are either not sold on or cannot use:

[name_m]Christopher[/name_m] (do not like nickname [name_u]Chris[/name_u])

I would [name_f]LOVE[/name_f] suggestions. Thanks!!

[name_m]How[/name_m] about:


[name_u]Elliot[/name_u], [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_u]Finn[/name_u], [name_m]Asher[/name_m], [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], [name_m]Leo[/name_m], [name_m]Otto[/name_m], [name_u]Micah[/name_u], [name_u]Noah[/name_u], [name_m]Judah[/name_m], [name_m]Jonas[/name_m], [name_m]Reuben[/name_m], [name_m]Amos[/name_m], [name_m]Jonah[/name_m], [name_m]Wyatt[/name_m], [name_m]Clark[/name_m], [name_m]Elijah[/name_m], [name_m]Ezekiel[/name_m], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], [name_m]Jonah[/name_m], [name_u]Glenn[/name_u], [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]

These are all from my names list :slight_smile: Good luck!!

I really like the last 4 - [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], [name_m]Calvin[/name_m], [name_m]Christopher[/name_m], and [name_m]Patrick[/name_m] (obviously). I’m with you on the nickname [name_u]Chris[/name_u], though - not a fan. With [name_m]Peter[/name_m], I would also suggest [name_m]Henry[/name_m], [name_u]James[/name_u], or [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], if you like those at all. Good luck!

[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]? [name_m]Silas[/name_m]?

I’d probably go with the name [name_m]Eric[/name_m]. I like [name_m]Eric[/name_m] and [name_m]Peter[/name_m] together.

[name_m]Eric[/name_m] can also be spelled [name_m]Erik[/name_m] and [name_m]Erick[/name_m].
