Help Me With My Boy's List 🌾

In recent days, I’ve fallen head over heels with my girl names. My top combos are Clara Scarlett, Phoebe Kate, Willa Dorothy, and Alice January, and I also adore Ruby and Susanna “Sunny”. I love them, and I could totally imagine having daughters with any of these names.
As this is happening, I’m struggling with my boys list. I only truly love Wesley Shepherd “Wes”, and I also sort of love August William/August Zebedee. I also really like Zebedee as a first, but I don’t feel like it goes with Wesley. I really could use some help with boy names. I’ll put my long(ish)list below, so you guys can maybe help me love some of those names more, but I’d also love some other suggestions.

Thanks in advance! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] you girls’ names and [name_u]Wesley[/name_u] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] is great!!

Your girls give me a sweet, vintage vibe, a hint of classic-with-a-twist, grounded with spark!

Of your boys list, I am loving these for you:

[name_m]Atticus[/name_m] → snappy, cool and elegant but with a vintage/literary vibe

[name_u]August[/name_u] → warm, charming and lovely

[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] → this would fit with [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] and maybe as a middle!

[name_u]Beckett[/name_u] → cool and fresh, but grounded too

[name_u]Ezra[/name_u] → zippy and bright but grounded too

[name_m]Felix[/name_m] → cute and cheerful and bright

[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] → it’s more regal and solid, but comes with cute, sparky nicknames (Freddie, [name_u]Rex[/name_u], [name_u]Fox[/name_u], Red)

[name_u]Gideon[/name_u] → clunky cool and rugged

[name_u]Griffin[/name_u] → I think this fits you middle name style well!

[name_u]Jonah[/name_u] → gentle, warm, and lovely

[name_m]Linus[/name_m] → it’s got that ‘old man’ vibe, but with a fresh twist

[name_u]Mackenzie[/name_u] → would make a cool, sparky middle

[name_u]Miles[/name_u] → cool and sleek

[name_m]Reuben[/name_m] → soft and sweet, classic and charming

[name_u]Robin[/name_u] → warm, lovely and vintage

[name_u]Wilder[/name_u] - cool and middle name worthy with yours

[name_m]Ronan[/name_m] → gentle and rugged at the same time!

Some combos I’d make out of yours (might spark some interest in them again?):

[name_m]Atticus[/name_m] [name_u]Henry[/name_u]
[name_u]Ezra[/name_u] [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]

[name_m]Ronan[/name_m] [name_m]Dacre[/name_m]

Thank you for your response! From your combo ideas, I’m loving Frederick Wilder (Rex is such a fun nickname) and Jack Zebedee the most. From your new ideas, Franklin, Sullivan (aww, Wes and Sully is adorable), and Samson are really striking me.

Loving the girls names! No wonder your head over heels :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I like Wesley Shepherd he feels very relaxed and outdoorsy with a fun southern gentleman feel. August Zebedee is beyond fun! Pairs well with Wesley Shepherd. I also love William.

Looking at your list aside from the names discussed I love

Ezra ~ long time favourite of mine so soft and handsome

Felix ~ I’ve always loved Felix he’s so joyous!

Fletcher ~ this name was never really on my radar but now I really love him thanks too @emeraldsea! She put me on the path of appreciation for Fletcher.

Frederick ~ absolutely gorgeous strong and enduring really handsome I also love Freddie

Gideon ~ gosh I love Gideon! Truly handsome name that feels striking and biblically rich.

Henry ~ such a cuddly cosy autumnal name!

Jack ~ a friendly happy name that sounds sweet, outdoorsy with a wintry edge

James ~ this name is so familiar and warm he’s a lovely classic

Jonah ~ a peaceful biblical name that is very appealing

Miles ~ another fabulous choice! Miles has a distinguished gentlemanly jazz player feel.

Nathaniel ~ I really like this name however I prefer Nathanael he’s just such handsome and distinguished with a range of nicknames attached

Oakland ~ very cool country boy choice super stylish

Oliver ~ for me he has a similar feel to James soft and peaceful very classic

Reuben ~ such a lovely biblical name with a wonderful meaning attached I also think Rue is an adorable nickname.

Robin ~ always loved Robin! He’s outdoorsy, bright and Christmassy. Truly love Robin.

Theodore ~ he’s gorgeous incredibly handsome and cuddly with a range of lovely nicknames that can grow with them.

Wilder ~ a cool nature name with a stylish outdoorsy fabulous feel.

To be honest your whole list is fab but these are my absolute favourites!

Potential combinations

Ezra Nathaniel
Felix Oakland
Henry Fletcher
Gideon Miles
Robin Jonah
Oliver Wilder
Theodore Jack
James Wilder
Frederick Reuben

Hope this helps
