I think I hate all boy names...HELP!

[name_u]Baby[/name_u] boy on the way! I’ve been looking at names for WEEKS and haven’t found anything I really like. I had 10 girl names that I LOVE on a list, but boy names are another story entirely. Here is what I don’t love but also don’t hate:

  1. [name_m]Simon[/name_m]
  2. [name_m]Hugo[/name_m]
  3. [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
  4. [name_m]Clark[/name_m]

I guess I lean toward more classic names that aren’t overused. Any ideas mamas??? Please send some inspiration!

I have a [name_u]Milo[/name_u] [name_m]Alfred[/name_m] and I feel like [name_u]Milo[/name_u] is an underused classic. I was in the same boat with boys names- all my favorites were girls. But love that it worked out how it did. Good luck and congrats❤️

Thank you!
Some of our girl names were: [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Margo[/name_f], [name_f]Delphine[/name_f], [name_f]Celeste[/name_f] and [name_u]Louise[/name_u] :grinning:

There are some good ones here! I keep seeing [name_u]Julian[/name_u] pop up on lists and my eye always goes back to it. [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], too…
I LOVE [name_u]Dean[/name_u], but my husband has an uncle with that name :frowning_face: I also love [name_u]Bennett[/name_u], but a friend just recently stole that one.
