Help!! Unusual, Rare, Uncommon Boy Names??????

I’m looking through boy names and having a really hard time. Our doctor thinks it’s a boy. We go on [name_f]April[/name_f] 2nd to find out for sure. This is our first child…we’ve been trying to conceive for 8 years and IVF finally worked! My husband is pretty good about being open to unusual names as long as it’s not too weird. One of my biggest problems is that I have a huge family and I’m a 1st grade teacher so I’m constantly around kids. It’s VERY hard to name a baby when you have been around so many names over the course of 10 years…takes a lot of good ones out of the running lol. Anyway, I could use any ideas with different, unusual, nature, place, and rare names. Thanks so much!!!

Here are some names I’m considering, but not sold on yet…to give you an idea of what I really like…

Boys

[name_u]Oakley[/name_u]
[name_m]Axl[/name_m]/[name_m]Axel[/name_m]
[name_m]Kingston[/name_m]
[name_m]Knox[/name_m]
[name_m]Arrow[/name_m] *love but my husband hates
[name_m]Bruin[/name_m]
[name_m]Major[/name_m]
[name_u]Memphis[/name_u] (my husband loves, but I’m not sold)
[name_m]Knight[/name_m]

[name_u]Grey[/name_u]
[name_m]Bronx[/name_m]
[name_m]Wilder[/name_m]
[name_u]Denver[/name_u]

I feel this struggle, my boys are [name_m]Maverick[/name_m], [name_u]Roux[/name_u] and [name_m]Byron[/name_m]! Their names were a marathon but worth the search!

We also considered: [name_m]Rogan[/name_m], [name_m]Stellan[/name_m], [name_u]Asa[/name_u], [name_f]Nova[/name_f], Loken, [name_m]Anders[/name_m], Loxley, [name_m]Lars[/name_m], Ixian/Ixion, [name_m]Rune[/name_m], [name_m]Conan[/name_m], Ezben.

[name_m]Trust[/name_m] that you will find that one!!

Much love, [name_u]Sky[/name_u] x

[name_u]Memphis[/name_u], [name_u]Oakley[/name_u], and [name_m]Wilder[/name_m] are winners in my book!

Congrats on your long-awaited pregnancy!

Wow…you guys are so helpful!!! Thanks so much! You gave me a bunch of names to think about and a lot that I will definitely add to my list!!

I also wanted to add that our last name is [name_u]Harper[/name_u]…I feel like some of the names on my list, like [name_m]Wilder[/name_m], don’t go as well with [name_u]Harper[/name_u] as others. Any thoughts/opinions???

Oh yeah, knowing your last name I would agree. I think that scratches names like [name_m]Wilder[/name_m], [name_m]Archer[/name_m], [name_m]Thatcher[/name_m], [name_m]Fletcher[/name_m], [name_u]Porter[/name_u], etc. as as option.

Names that end with -son, -sun, -ly, -ley, and similar are likely going to have the best sound for the overall name.

Also, I just noticed [name_m]Knight[/name_m] on you list, I didn’t catch it before. I have a friend whose little boy is named [name_m]Fox[/name_m] [name_m]Knight[/name_m] ___ and I love it as as a middle!
