Inspire me with your fresh new input

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] guys, so I guess I am starting to really get into names once again, slowly returning to my regular activity levels on this forum. Age old mantra: not expecting, just collecting.

So new round, new names? I think I still kind of like the ones I left with since I updated my sig shortly before I went a bit AWOL a couple of months ago.

What has changed is that I’ve started to appreciate boys’ names, I think that’s a pretty big change because I used to whine a lot about them…

So my current list of names is:




You don’t have to rate my list if you don’t feel like it, I’m interested in knowing what names or type of names would you suggest on the basis of this list and which names you would like to see go. I am fine with you suggesting names you have recently found yourself that you like because I am pretty open minded.

[name_m]Gabriel[/name_m]- I love this name, although I dislike [name_m]Gabe[/name_m] as a nn.
[name_m]Alec[/name_m]- [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_m]Alec[/name_m] and [name_u]Alex[/name_u]
[name_u]James[/name_u]- I usually don’t have much to say about the traditional names, but I really love the name [name_u]James[/name_u]. It sounds very sophisticated.
[name_m]Laszlo[/name_m]- love it
[name_m]Cadmus[/name_m] - not really feeling it. It doesn’t roll off my tongue right… and Cad as a nn, not really cool
Raphaël- [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] and love [name_m]Rafi[/name_m]
[name_m]Rhodri[/name_m]- kinda cool. It’s different. I like!
[name_m]Yves[/name_m]- I like this one as well
[name_m]Ezra[/name_m]- I’ve seen a lot of this name floating around. I would check about popularity and make sure it isn’t too trendy at the moment
[name_m]Willem[/name_m]- For some reason it seems a little feminine to me. There is a popular drag queen named [name_m]Willam[/name_m], so maybe that is where my mind goes to first
[name_m]Julius[/name_m]- I do like this, but there are others I like more.
Livius - hmmm… kinda indifferent about this one. [name_f]Kinda[/name_f] same as above, I like it, but there are others I like more
[name_u]Rhys[/name_u]- I love this. But again, I would check popularity. I feel for some reason it could become trendy
[name_m]Joaquim[/name_m]/[name_m]Joakim[/name_m]- not really feeling it. It is just a little too much name for me
[name_u]Arlen[/name_u]- I like this, but it kinda reminds me of [name_m]Aryan[/name_m]… which doesn’t have the best connotation to me
[name_m]Odin[/name_m]- I have nephews [name_m]Thor[/name_m] and [name_m]Tyr[/name_m], so I like [name_m]Odin[/name_m]!
[name_m]Matteo[/name_m] - This has ALWAYS been one of my favorite names ever!!! [name_u]LOVE[/name_u]!
[name_m]Griffin[/name_m] - This sounds very irish to me. Not a bad thing, but it’s just the first thing I think of. Then I think of the nn [name_m]Griff[/name_m]… which reminds me of gruff… I dunno, I’m not too into it
[name_m]Iago[/name_m] - all I can think of is the parrot from [name_m]Aladdin[/name_m]
[name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] - I’ve always loved this name. [name_m]Ben[/name_m] is a great nn as well.
Gaël - I [name_f]ADORE[/name_f] this name. It’s unique, sophisticated, exotic. love it

[name_f]Fenna[/name_f]- no
[name_f]Odile[/name_f]- no

[name_f]Nuala[/name_f]- when I first saw it, I definitely thought it said nutella lol.
