HyacinthBucket’s Boy Name Bucket (ultimate masterlist)

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f] to my ultimate masterlist. I’ve spent the past few days going through all my topics from my previous accounts and my present one, and all my Nameberry userlists, public and private. This is the list for boys that resulted (just under 350 names!).

What names stick out to you here for me? Many of these names are no longer loves of mine, but I do feel like I have had a relationship with each, however brief or longlasting. Which names strike you as distinctly me? Which names should I seriously reconsider before leaving them on the table forever with the conclusion of my baby-naming?

I just love your lists, both boy and girl; many of these are on my longlists, and a few are like “Oh! I thought I was the only one who fancied that name!”

As far as feeling like you, it’s mostly, but not entirely, the heroic Greek names.

Achille/Achilles, [name_m]Aloysius[/name_m], [name_m]Arcturus[/name_m], [name_m]Artemio[/name_m], [name_m]Astrophel[/name_m], [name_m]Beowulf[/name_m], [name_u]Campion[/name_u], [name_m]Deucalion[/name_m], [name_m]Dionysus[/name_m], [name_m]Endymion[/name_m], [name_m]Gawain[/name_m], Gwyndion, [name_m]Hesperios[/name_m], Heironymos, [name_m]Hyperion[/name_m], [name_m]Icarus[/name_m], Ignotus, [name_u]Jem[/name_u] and [name_u]Jules[/name_u] (bc I know about the honors), [name_m]Malachite[/name_m], [name_u]Meridian[/name_u], [name_m]Merlin[/name_m], [name_u]Oberon[/name_u], [name_m]Odysseus[/name_m], [name_m]Orpheus[/name_m], [name_m]Ozymandias[/name_m], [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u], [name_m]Philemon[/name_m], [name_m]Prometheus[/name_m], Rubeus, [name_m]Serafim[/name_m], [name_u]Taliesin[/name_u], [name_m]Valerian[/name_m], [name_m]Zimran[/name_m].

If picking a Top 5: [name_m]Endymion[/name_m], [name_m]Odysseus[/name_m], [name_m]Ozymandias[/name_m], Rubeus, and [name_u]Taliesin[/name_u].

Also, I love that you have [name_m]Seamus[/name_m], almost alone among Irish names here; we came so close to picking it this time. And [name_u]Toby[/name_u] and [name_m]Tobit[/name_m], since I have a [name_m]Tobias[/name_m]. And [name_m]Bjorn[/name_m]! Also [name_m]Ernst[/name_m] and [name_m]Kelvin[/name_m], since I have a friend who used them, E.K., for her first son and I have commiserated with her over no one liking his name.
And it made me smile that you have [name_m]Aurelien[/name_m] and [name_m]Lucian[/name_m], and I have them too but prefer [name_m]Aurelian[/name_m] and [name_m]Lucien[/name_m] :grin:

I actually found this question very difficult to answer. It feels such an open question and my mind kept trying to look for ways to filter the list through sibling cohesion, style or meaning. In the end, I decided to just assume for the sake of the exercise that each name carried meaning and look solely for names that felt like Metal Ox; lustrous, formidable but not lacking warmth. Names I mightn’t have given much thought until seen through your lens.
