Need serious help with a Boy name...

We are expecting a baby boy in [name]March[/name]. My husband and I have a ton of girl names we love, but we cannot decide on boy name to save our lives!! It’s actually a major chore lately.

Things to consider:
We have a long and very Jewish last name, starts with a W so no W names.
We don’t want anything too common
I am Hispanic and bilingual and would like the name the reflect some of this (not a deal breaker, it would just be nice)

Names on each of our lists so you have an idea of our styles:

Husband - top picks:
[name]Everly[/name] ( after [name]Everly[/name] Brothers)
I worry that the poor child will spends its life correcting people calling him [name]Beverly[/name]! At the same time I love that it’s special to my husband.

My top picks:
[name]Rio[/name] - my husband thinks it’s too short??

BTW, we both used to love the name [name]Lucas[/name], but its become way too popular.

Please help, it becomes an argument each time we discuss names for our baby boy!!

Thank you!!!

A few ideas

[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Atticus[/name]
[name]Rio[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Easton[/name] [name]Philip[/name] (one of the [name]Everly[/name] brothers was a [name]Phil[/name] if I recall)
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Marco[/name]
[name]Jude[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Atticus[/name] nn [name]Rico[/name]
[name]Carlos[/name] [name]Xavier[/name]

Honestly, your husband’s choices all sound very feminine to me, with Everleigh being [name]Cam[/name] Gigandet’s (Twilight) baby, [name]Sydney[/name] being my female cousin, and [name]Adlai[/name] reminding me of the comfy classic, [name]Adelaide[/name]. Your names, on the other hand, are decidedly boy, if not in the conventional way. [name]Atticus[/name] is my favorite of your choices.

Let me see if I can suggest some other possibilities:



As you can see, there is some overlap between the Hebrew and Spanish names I have provided. One of these would likely suit your needs, perhaps? Also, your husband’s choices of [name]Everly[/name] and [name]Sidney[/name] (this is the masculine - as opposed to unisex - spelling) could be great middle names for your little one!

[name]Gideon[/name] is my favourite!

[name]Hi[/name] there!

[name]Everly[/name] ( after [name]Everly[/name] Brothers): I agree with [name]Lemon[/name] that this sounds very feminine. I think of it as a trendy name that has gone to the girls.

You and your husband may like:


[name]Sydney[/name]: [name]Sydney[/name] is a very trendy girls’ names these days…

You and your husband may like:


[name]Adlai[/name]: I think of [name]Adlai[/name] [name]Stevenson[/name] and [name]Adelaide[/name].

You and your husband may like:


[name]Elliot[/name]: I think this is a great name. [name]Everett[/name] would encompass [name]Elliot[/name]'s length and ending sound, while allowing him to name the baby after the [name]Everly[/name] Brothers.


[name]Rio[/name]: I think it’s cool, but I’m not sure about it with your last name.

[name]Gideon[/name]: I love this name!

[name]Raphael[/name] (spelled [name]Rafael[/name], it could honor your heritage)

[name]Atticus[/name]: I love this name!


Names that remind me of [name]Lucas[/name]:

similar sound:


Names that have [name]Lucas[/name]’ feel to me:


Good luck! :slight_smile:

I agree with the othr posters all your hubbys picks and [name]Elliot[/name] sound very fem to me. [name]Rio[/name] is on our name list for boys too but I go back and forth because i do think its too short. i love [name]Atticus[/name] and [name]Gideon[/name].

Me, too, and I love another poster’s suggestion of [name]Gabriel[/name]. Your dh’s choices are way too feminine.

I am also in the boat of thinking your husband’s choices are quite feminine (at least in the USA).

What about:
[name]Maxwell[/name]/ [name]Maxfield[/name]

I’ve only heard [name]Everly[/name] as a girls name, nickname is [name]Evie[/name].
