Ahh! So many good H names for boys!
I’ve always liked the name [name_u]Hudson[/name_u] but yes my perception is that it’s become fairly popular. Certainly in a different category altogether from [name_m]Hiram[/name_m]. I can see how [name_m]Hawthorne[/name_m] is kind of right in the middle of the spectrum between those two!
But since it was veto’d…
What about the much more unusual H name… [name_m]Halifax[/name_m]! I know it’s a lot more out there in sound, but if you think about it, it’s a place name just like [name_u]Hudson[/name_u]. All the cool historical & geographical interest plus modern -x ending, and adorable nn [name_m]Hal[/name_m].
If [name_m]Halifax[/name_m] is too much, perhaps [name_u]Hendrix[/name_u]. Very cool musical tribute name.
