Narrow Down Top 8

We somehow have our boy name list narrowed down to a random top 8 (kinda like MySpace, lol).

We have a son named [name_u]Carson[/name_u]. Middle name may be [name_m]Gregory[/name_m], but we’re not 100% set on that. We like surnames as first names, and names that aren’t in the top 50, but also aren’t too out there. We are also open to additional suggestions!

[name_u]Campbell[/name_u] (probably the most “out there” on the list. We like [name_u]Cam[/name_u] as a nn and would probably do middle name [name_u]James[/name_u] to open up CJ as a nn too.)

Thanks! :slight_smile:


I actually really like Campbell and don’t think it’s too out there, but it sounds very close to Carson to me? Carson & Campbell feel intentionally matchy which I personally find a bit cheesy.

With Carson, my favourites are Sullivan & Luca! Both feel very modern, like Carson, and are equally familiar. They’re also handsome and easy to spell and pronounce!

[name_u]Campbell[/name_u] “Cam” is really great! And I like [name_u]Carson[/name_u] & [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] as brother names. :slight_smile:

[name_m]Vincent[/name_m], [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] and [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] are my favorites here.

[name_m]Kylen[/name_m] sounds too similar to [name_u]Carson[/name_u] imo.
[name_u]Campbell[/name_u] is nice and very close, but not necessarily too close. But if you ever have a third, you might feel obliged (although you aren’t, of course!) to stick to the Ca- and restrictions like this can be really annoying.
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] and [name_u]Julian[/name_u] are nice enough, but at least to me they feel a little plain.
[name_m]Vincent[/name_m], [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] are all good fits.
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] is my favourite!

That’s what I worry about too with [name_u]Campbell[/name_u]. I almost don’t want to do it just because it starts with a C. :confused: :confused:

Of your list, I really like:

[name_u]August[/name_u] - warm and charming
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] - handsome and fun
[name_u]Luca[/name_u] - sparky and cute
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] - handsome, gentle and regal all at once

On [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] - I don’t actually think this is too out there - maybe I’ve just spent too long on NB :grin: :woman_shrugging: but I do quite like it

[name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_u]Luca[/name_u] are my faves for your!

[name_m]Stellan[/name_m], [name_m]Dashiell[/name_m], [name_u]Beckett[/name_u] and [name_m]Warren[/name_m] came to mind :slight_smile:

I think I like [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] and [name_u]Julian[/name_u] the best with brother [name_u]Carson[/name_u]!

Other ideas, for fun:


I think I like [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] the most with [name_u]Carson[/name_u].

[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] is my favorite. :slight_smile:


I absolutely love your list. The only name I don’t really like is [name_m]Kylen[/name_m] but that’s just down to preferences.

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourites from your list with [name_u]Carson[/name_u] are [name_m]Vincent[/name_m] & [name_u]August[/name_u].

I also really like [name_u]Campbell[/name_u]. I don’t really like repeat initials but again that’s just a personal thing.

[name_u]Luca[/name_u], [name_u]Julian[/name_u], & [name_m]Kylen[/name_m] are my favourites. (Carson is an amazing name!)

[name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] feel at home with [name_u]Carson[/name_u]!

I love [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] with big brother [name_u]Carson[/name_u] !

[name_u]Carson[/name_u] and [name_m]Mac[/name_m] :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
And [name_m]Malcom[/name_m] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] is perfection !!

I think that [name_u]Julian[/name_u] is the clear winner. It’s such a nice name, and you don’t hear it being used so often anymore. [name_u]Carson[/name_u] and [name_u]Julian[/name_u] also sound like a cute pair.

[name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_u]Julian[/name_u] are my favourites.

[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] is my favourite. [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] and [name_u]Carson[/name_u] make a cute sibset too. [name_m]Vincent[/name_m] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] makes a good combo.

I like [name_m]Vincent[/name_m], [name_u]August[/name_u], and [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m] best and dislike [name_m]Kylen[/name_m] and [name_u]Campbell[/name_u].

Personal favorites

All adorable!

You have a lot of great choices. If you aren’t in love with [name_u]Campbell[/name_u] and like [name_u]Cam[/name_u] have you considered [name_u]Camden[/name_u]. I think it is a handsome choice. It sounds great with [name_u]James[/name_u] and [name_m]Gregory[/name_m]. [name_u]Carson[/name_u] and [name_u]Camden[/name_u] make strong brother names.

[name_u]Camden[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u]
[name_u]Camden[/name_u] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m]

If you are opposed to the same “C” initial. I love [name_m]Vincent[/name_m] [name_m]Gregory[/name_m] and [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u]
