Name with our last

So, definitely not the only factor but which names do you like best with our last name and what name do you like in general. Our last name is B@ldwin (@=a). Thank you!

James B@ldwin
[name_u]Max[/name_u] B@ldwin
[name_u]Sam[/name_u] B@ldwin or possibly [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] B@ldwin
[name_m]Henry[/name_m] B@ldwin
[name_u]Finn[/name_u] B@ldwin

Henry, [name_u]Max[/name_u] and [name_u]James[/name_u] flow best imo. [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is my favorite with your last name!

I love all your choices, so I’m just going to rank them and write a few comments:

  1. Max B@ldwin
    I really love the name [name_u]Max[/name_u], and it sounds so handsome with your last name! No real critiques, and it’s one that feels the most familiar yet uncommon from your list.
  2. Samuel “[name_u]Sam[/name_u]” B@ldwin
    I like [name_u]Sam[/name_u] and [name_m]Samuel[/name_m], and they sound good with your last name. [name_u]Sam[/name_u] is much more of a nickname to me than a full name, so I would go with [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] nicknamed [name_u]Sam[/name_u], but I know of kids who are just [name_u]Sam[/name_u] and they do fine.
  3. James B@ldwin
    [name_u]James[/name_u] is really common, but it’s a handsome name. He’s likely to be one of a few in his grade though, but it doesn’t feel common in the same way that [name_u]Jackson[/name_u] or [name_u]Aidan[/name_u] do (as examples, they are very dated to this generation)
  4. Finn B@ldwin
    [name_u]Finn[/name_u] is a great name, but I’m not sure I love it with your last name. Common and more dated to this generation than your other choices.
  5. Henry B@ldwin
    [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is a great name but it’s starting to feel a little boring to me. Still a good name, just not my favorite from your list.

In order my vote goes to

[name_u]Sam[/name_u] and [name_u]Max[/name_u] (tied- don’t dislike either but don’t prefer one to the other)

My top three are [name_u]Finn[/name_u], [name_m]Henry[/name_m], and [name_u]Sam[/name_u] in that order!

Henry or [name_u]James[/name_u] sound the best to me

James and [name_m]Henry[/name_m] sound perfect with your last name. I also like [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] nn [name_u]Sam[/name_u] B@ldw!n.

They are all really nice names with my favourites being -

  1. Max
  2. Samuel
  3. James.

If I were to get really picky only to help you narrow down your list and for consideration, [name_u]Finn[/name_u] and B@ldwin (FINN b@ldwIN) share the same sounds so they aren’t quite as perfect together as the other names, IMO.

James would be my first pick
[name_m]Henry[/name_m] being my second

Max or [name_m]Henry[/name_m]!!

If i was to rank them, I’d di


I like [name_m]Henry[/name_m] and [name_u]Sam[/name_u]!

James [name_u]Baldwin[/name_u] is a rather well-known gay African American writer and activist so unless I had ties to that community I would not use it.

I like [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_m]Samuel[/name_m]/Sam best with your last name. Good luck!
