Its a BOY! and we have NO names! HELP! :(

We found out this last week that our baby (little one, number 1) is in fact a boy! We are definatly more excited now, but we have absolutly NO boys names. We dont really have a ‘type’ persay I just dont want names that are exceptionally trendy and nothing way to popular. We have the middle name (either [name]Michael[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name] or [name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Michael[/name]) last name is starts with a G and ends in’s’. Our last resort is [name]Michael[/name] as a first name, [name]Nathaniel[/name] as a middle name. But i dont really want to do that. [name]Both[/name] [name]Michael[/name] and [name]Nathaniel[/name] are family names so they arnt changable. We could really use your help I am having a VERY hard time finding a name we both like. Thanks so much!

Hmmm, well firstly, very handsome middle names you have picked out :slight_smile: Together they are rather ‘L’ heavy, aren’t they? Understood, as family names they are very important but have you thought of using a variant or one or the other? [name]Micah[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name], for instance? That sounds super handsome! And has terrific flow :slight_smile:

Anyway, now for some suggestions for first names. Since I don’t know exactly the kind you’re after, I’ll just meet the requirements of nothing too popular or trendy :slight_smile:


If you want to just go through and delete all the ones you don’t like it would give a better idea of what you’re looking for :slight_smile:

Here’s some of my favorites. My husband likes trendy names, but I’ve been trying to tone him down, but if it seeps into my list – it’s because it’s shared with him :slight_smile:


Charliehotsox: I am going to put my hubby’s opinion first, then mine. His will probably be just yes or no. lol. But thanks about the middle names :slight_smile: I dont think we would want to use a a diffrent form of either name, simply because i dont think most people know that its a variant, and i would really like to honor at least my dad with [name]Michael[/name] :slight_smile:

Most of your names ^ arnt my particular taste, I dont seem to care for shorter names ([name]Tate[/name], [name]Zane[/name], [name]Axel[/name], ect) though they have a really rugged feel to them, they are not my taste.

I wouldnt take it personally :frowning: Hes VERY difficult :frowning:

On an off note, he just randomly said “I like [name]Orion[/name]!” And i was like “I do too!” So i definatly think that may be int he running! [name]How[/name] does [name]Orion[/name] [name]Michael[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name] G_______ sound? Or should we just do [name]Orion[/name] [name]Michael[/name] G_______? Having left for a bit and been thinking about [name]Orion[/name] I REALLY like it. I think it might actually THE NAME. Thanks so much for all your suggestions! And feel free to leave comment on [name]Orion[/name]! I really like it right now :slight_smile: But i am not sure how trendy it is (have set to check the top 1,000).

Thanks again!
