We are no longer sharing with our family and friends. Our poor baby boy choices have been uncritically acclaimed. They’ve ruined [name]Jasper[/name] to the point of no return. They’re silent about [name]Silas[/name], and they’re not far off the mark when they say [name]Quinn[/name] is feminine.
The secret is…I have a favorite that I can’t let them ruin. Although I think I’m giving nameberry fans a clear shot at it. So, here it is… [name]River[/name]. I think it sounds soothing and serene while conjuring up a rugged/masculine image in my mind. I’ve loved this name for a long time. I was happy when [name]Keri[/name] [name]Russell[/name] chose this for her son, hoping that it would take away some of the “[name]River[/name] [name]Phoenix[/name]” association. Most commonly, I hear that it sounds “too hippyish.” One of my friends thought that kids would pick on little [name]River[/name].
I would love to know what nameberry fans think? I can take it.
On the plus side, everyone seems to like our top girl names. In my opinion, the are just as “naturey” or unique without being “out there.” Personally, I think they’re more “hipster” than anything else. We love [name]Violet[/name], [name]Autumn[/name], [name]Scarlet[/name] etc.
Any suggestions would be welcomed as well. Here are some new favorites yet to be tarnished by unpopular reviews: [name]Everett[/name], [name]Charles[/name] (too plain for me but it’s a family name), [name]Beckett[/name], [name]Leo[/name]… Thanks for your help!
BTW, our last name is long and Italian. That might complicate things
