Liam? Abe? Seamus?

We just found out we are having a boy! we already have a 5 year old little girl named [name]Hollis[/name] and I need help with boy names! We’re thinking [name]Liam[/name], [name]Abe[/name], [name]Seamus[/name]… We need some suggestions, something that flows well with his big sister [name]Hollis[/name] and works with his middle name [name]John[/name] [name]Charles[/name] (after my Father, who passed away).

[name]Liam[/name] fits well although it has a slightly ‘over-used’ feel next to [name]Hollis[/name].

[name]Abe[/name] is cool but it’s a bit moldie-oldie next to the hip [name]Hollis[/name].

[name]Seamus[/name] is a great fit – quirky yet established.

Other ideas with [name]Hollis[/name]:


I vote for [name]Abe[/name]. I think [name]Abe[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name] go well together, and [name]Seamus[/name] might be too much “S” with [name]Hollis[/name]. If the popularity of [name]Liam[/name] doesn’t bother you (love the name, but there are TONS here) than it might also work. But I think [name]Abe[/name] is cool in the same way [name]Hollis[/name] is.
Good luck!

I agree that [name]Seamus[/name] has the possibility of being too much “s” with [name]Hollis[/name] (which is adorable, btw!)

[name]Liam[/name] feels a bit too ordinary next to [name]Hollis[/name], so my vote goes to [name]Abe[/name].

here’s some more ideas: (sorry for repeats, didn’t look at the list really hard before I posted)

[name]Dexter[/name] (I [name]Love[/name] this with [name]Hollis[/name]!)
[name]Abner[/name] (could still use nn [name]Abe[/name])

To go with [name]Hollis[/name], [name]Seamus[/name]. [name]Abe[/name] doesnt sound right with [name]Hollis[/name]. [name]Liam[/name] I can kind of see with [name]Hollis[/name], but [name]Seamus[/name] definitely sounds better.

I like [name]Liam[/name] with [name]Hollis[/name] I think they work great together.
I’m going to have to agree with others and say that [name]Seamus[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name] are heavy on the “s’”

Great suggestions so far!

Lets see [name]Hollis[/name] and

[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Arden[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Camden[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Dorian[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Felix[/name] - okay okay it doesn’t end in an “s” but it may be too matchy. I kind of like them together though. Actually I like them a lot.
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Gage[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Garrett[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Jarrett[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Keaton[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Nolan[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Oren[/name]/[name]Oran[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Porter[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Ronin[/name]/[name]Ronan[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Teague[/name]
[name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Vega[/name]

I just love the name [name]Hollis[/name]. :slight_smile: I picture a similarly surname-ish name for her brother, but one that’s also distinctive, offbeat (in a good way), and unexpected.

[name]Hollis[/name] and…

[name]Abbott[/name] (nn [name]Abe[/name])
[name]Abner[/name] (not a surname, but I can see it with [name]Hollis[/name], nn [name]Abe[/name])
[name]Arlo[/name] (ditto)
[name]Barnaby[/name] (nn [name]Abe[/name])
[name]Calloway[/name] (nn [name]Cal[/name])
[name]Cavanaugh[/name] (nn [name]Van[/name])
[name]Dashiell[/name] (Not so surname-ish, but I can see it with [name]Hollis[/name])
[name]Duncan[/name] (I admit that I think of the Dunkin’ Donuts chain, though) :slight_smile:
[name]Donovan[/name] (nn [name]Van[/name])
[name]Finnian[/name] ([name]Finn[/name]'s pretty popular, but I love it) :slight_smile:
[name]Finnegan[/name] (gaining popularity)
[name]Milo[/name] (see [name]Dashiell[/name])
[name]Rafferty[/name] (see [name]Dashiell[/name])
[name]Willoughby[/name] (nn [name]Will[/name]…[name]May[/name] be too feminine, though)

I think that the longer first names sound better with [name]John[/name] [name]Charles[/name] (I’m sorry about your dad passing away), but I see that you like shorter last names.

If you’d like an Irish first name that’s not as popular as [name]Liam[/name]:

[name]Cormac[/name] (nn [name]Mac[/name])
[name]Griffin[/name] (Welsh)
[name]Kellan[/name] (someone told me this is Irish)
[name]Rowan[/name] (unisex, though)

My apologies for repeats!
Good luck! :slight_smile:

girl, if you don’t quit suggesting my favorite Irish names I’m gonna have to hurt you :wink: But seriously, you always come up with such great suggestions! I really like the suggestions of [name]Everett[/name], [name]Cavanaugh[/name], [name]Montgomery[/name], [name]Rafferty[/name], and [name]Sullivan[/name]. So if you could pretend [name]Beckett[/name], [name]Declan[/name], [name]Kelan[/name] ([name]Kellan[/name]), [name]Callum[/name], and [name]Grady[/name] don’t exist, I’d appreciate it hahaha…

and to the original poster, I actually don’t mind [name]Hollis[/name] and [name]Seamus[/name] together. Not a fan of [name]Abe[/name] though… I think I’ve seen [name]Selena[/name] too many times (her brother and dad’s names).

Great suggestions.

I don’t like [name]Abe[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name] together. I think [name]Hollis[/name] is modern and trendy and [name]Abe[/name] is old worldy.

[name]Adrian[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Patrick[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Connor[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name], I love this combo
[name]Aidan[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name], One of my favourite names but very popular
[name]Griffin[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Timothy[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Jacob[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Keaton[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Nash[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]
[name]Weston[/name] and [name]Hollis[/name]

Thank you so much for the great suggestions! I love the name [name]Felix[/name], but my husband needs more convincing! He thinks of [name]Felix[/name] the [name]Cat[/name]. I think it works so well with [name]Hollis[/name].

[name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Jasper[/name]! [name]Hollis[/name] was going to be [name]Jasper[/name], if she was a boy of course! Still, my husband is not keen on it. His suggestions are [name]Eugene[/name], [name]Elijah[/name], [name]Kenneth[/name], [name]Timothy[/name] [name]Jr[/name]. (too may [name]Timmy[/name] [name]Jr[/name]'s in our family). We can’t seem to agree on anything…

Thank you all soooo much for the awesome suggestions! I can tell this is going to be ultra difficult to pick a name for our lil’ man!
