help, starting over!! And time is running out!

my husband has been so difficult about naming our 4th child, a boy! He wants something timeless, uncommon,masculine and unique.
My requirements are: nothing ending in “den” like hayden, jayden ect. Cannot start with the letter W, and nothing that dates my child’s age.
Here is also a list of the names hubby has vetoed, but i like:

and the only name my husband says he sort of likes is [name]Bodhi[/name], I am not too sure about this one!
Our only son is [name]Myles[/name], the other two are girls [name]Leila[/name] and [name]Bronwen[/name]

If anyone has anything…please! And Thanks!!

So you’re looking for a unique classic boys name, some from the top of my head…

[name]Keir[/name] (KEE-er)

[name]Hope[/name] this helps!! :slight_smile:

I actually do like [name]Bodhi[/name]. I think it’s one of those names I like
the meaning more though.

Suggestions -

[name]Zeke[/name] - one of my favorites and I just found out it means “shooting star” in Aramaic.
That made me fall more in love with this name. I think [name]Myles[/name] and [name]Zeke[/name] would be great together.
Maybe similar enough to [name]Beck[/name]
[name]Audric[/name] - a form of [name]Aldrich[/name]
[name]Adrian[/name] - hmmm ends in -an though.
[name]Django[/name] - silent “D”
[name]Felix[/name] - [name]Myles[/name] and [name]Felix[/name] would be cute.
[name]Rafe[/name] - could be a nn for [name]Raphael[/name] or [name]Rafferty[/name].
[name]Ronin[/name] - “samurai without a master”

I really like [name]Bodhi[/name]. I am really interested in Buddhism so I like the meaning. If you aren’t sure about it, I’d suggest [name]Beau[/name] - simple, rare yet known, and your husband can still use [name]Bodhi[/name] as a nickname.


[name]Hi[/name], [name]Libby[/name]! I’m sorry you have to start over, but I’m sure you’ll be able to find a name you love. :slight_smile:

Names like [name]Anderson[/name]:


Names that remind me of [name]Ronan[/name] and [name]Liam[/name]:


Biblical names like [name]Eli[/name] and [name]Seth[/name]:

Malachai (you could call him [name]Kai[/name])

Names that remind me of [name]Leo[/name]:


I’m sending you some virtual Peanut M&Ms and a (((hug)))). :slight_smile:

Take care!

You know [name]Quentin[/name] (not ‘en’) is a really good name match with [name]Myles[/name]. I am sure that this name fits your DH’s criteria.

[name]How[/name] about [name]Owen[/name]?

I really like [name]Corwin[/name]. It means friend

Thanks, but no hits so far
[name]Corwin[/name] is nice, but too much like bronwen and that is why hubby doesn’t like ronan
The list I have so far is
[name]Anderson[/name] (hubby worried will be shortened to andy)
[name]Seth[/name] (hubby thinks its hard to say)
[name]Ari[/name]. Hubby thinks it may be too different
[name]Hamish[/name]. He thinks it is too much
I hope this helps. Thanks a lot

[name]Libby[/name] don’t worry you will find a nice name soon.


It is pretty much certain that any long name will be shortened, so if you like [name]Andy[/name], no problem.

[name]Seth[/name] It reminds me of [name]Ethan[/name] but I think [name]Isaac[/name] would fit better

[name]Ari[/name]. Your DH is right, it is different but if you love it go for it.

[name]Hamish[/name]. I don’t think [name]Hamish[/name] is too much at all I think it is a normal Scottish name that has been around forever. Maybe he would prefer [name]Angus[/name] or [name]Donovan[/name]?
