Just have fun with it! Give me your cutest boy name ideas.

This is so hard! We thought we had a boy name chosen but after tossing it around for a month or more SO decided he thinks its too preppy sounding and doesnt really like it anymore. (The name was [name]Preston[/name])

This doesnt devastate me since I had my heart set on a biblical name for my son anyway. My mother is terminally ill and although we didnt plan this baby I prayed alot asking God to please let my mom live to see my first baby.(This will be her first biological grandchild all the rest are from her step children.) Turns out he decided to bless us now :slight_smile: Id like a name that means miracle, prayed for, gift of God, answered prayer or something like that but its not neccesary.

Suggestions dont have to be biblical just have fun with it! What are your favorite boys names? We need all the ideas we can get since we’re really stumped now. We’re going for something obscure but familiar.
