Looking for "softer" boy names ideas!

I’m expecting boy #2 this summer. My son’s name is [name]Brody[/name], which I looooove and here aren’t any other boy names that sound as sweet to me as [name]Brody[/name]. :slight_smile: I like names that are softer and end in a Y. To make it harder, I don’t want to use a name that’s in our large family, or belongs to a former.classmate, friend etc…

I like the name [name]Brady[/name] jut hubby says its way too close to [name]Brody[/name]. I like [name]Abel[/name] but he’s not digging it. I like [name]Remy[/name], which is a strong French man’s name, but.he think it’s girly. We both like [name]Rowan[/name], but I don’t know if it’s soft enough for me.

Any suggestions?

I love [name]Brody[/name]! I’m personally considering it myself. It’s so sweet and I picture the cutest little boy with that name! What’s his MN? [name]Just[/name] to avoid repeats? I think it’d help with suggesting names that fit your style, as well. Before I read your post I had several ideas for “soft” boys names but now that I read your thread, all I can think of are my own favorite boys’ names (which I’ve always thought had a softer feel to them, too)–like [name]Asher[/name]/[name]Ashton[/name], [name]Everett[/name], [name]Caleb[/name], [name]Jack[/name], [name]Henry[/name], [name]Bailey[/name], [name]Avery[/name] (maybe some of these are too unisex for you, haha), [name]Harper[/name], [name]Addison[/name], [name]Leo[/name], [name]Josiah[/name], [name]Noah[/name], [name]Calvin[/name], [name]Boone[/name], [name]Lincoln[/name], [name]Grayson[/name]/[name]Gray[/name], [name]Zane[/name], [name]Linus[/name], [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Silas[/name], [name]Elias[/name], etc.–do any of those appeal to you?

Other ideas I think I had (haha, I can’t remember them all!):

Some of them might have harder sounds in them, but I think they all have a more soft side to them that aren’t quite so rough-and-tumble like [name]Carter[/name], [name]Gunnar[/name], or [name]Shane[/name], if that makes sense. I really like the ideas of [name]Rowan[/name] and [name]Remy[/name] for you! Maybe [name]Owen[/name] or [name]Oscar[/name] might be softer than [name]Rowan[/name]? Or even [name]Bowen[/name]? [name]Brody[/name] and [name]Bowen[/name] might be too close, though.

Good luck!

I love all the names you mentioned. The first that came to mind was [name]Noah[/name], but I’m not sure if that’s your style. Here are others you may like (sorry for any repeats).

I hope this helps:

[name]Abraham[/name] nn [name]Bram[/name]
[name]Phineas[/name] nn [name]Finn[/name]
[name]Sullivan[/name] nn [name]Sully[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name] nn [name]Theo[/name]


I really like the name [name]Brody[/name], it sounds familiar but also different at the same time. [name]Brody[/name] & [name]Rowan[/name] nn Row would be a cute set(Row to me softens [name]Rowan[/name]). Some other Suggestions I can think of:


[name]Hope[/name] these help! I didn’t look thoroughly through the other list so sorry for any repeats!

I think most of my suggestions have already been given here – my first thought was [name]Levi[/name]; it’s a soft but interesting name. There is also [name]Felix[/name], [name]Seth[/name], [name]Silas[/name], [name]Elias[/name] (nn [name]Eli[/name]), [name]Samuel[/name], Revere, [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Hugh[/name], [name]Matthias[/name], [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Laurence[/name].

If you’re looking for something similar to [name]Remy[/name] as an alternative, maybe [name]Roman[/name] or [name]Romain[/name]?

I love [name]Remy[/name]! It’s very masculine to me which is why I don’t like it on girls, maybe you would like another French name (I think outside of france these are generally viewed as softer) so maybe [name]Julien[/name] or [name]Thierry[/name]?

I love [name]Remy[/name], I don’t see it as feminine at all, I think it is totally masculine but do think it is a softer boys name so I would go with [name]Remy[/name]! Good luck!
