Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Alasdair[/name] - like as a middle name
[name]Elias[/name], I love [name]Elijah[/name]*** even though it’s popular!
[name]Sebastien[/name], I love [name]Sebastian[/name]***
[name]Theodore[/name] “[name]Theo[/name]”***
[name]Xavier[/name], I love [name]Javier[/name]*

First I have to say that I love [name]Quinlan[/name], it’s my younger son’s name.

Other’s I like:
[name]Sebastien[/name] - though I like it spelled [name]Sebastian[/name] better
[name]Theodore[/name] “[name]Theo[/name]”

I just want to interject that I love the name [name]Octavian[/name] and when I tell people that they role their eyes. But really- is it that much different of a style that [name]Sebastian[/name]?

I like most of your names! Big fan of [name]Theo[/name] currently but can’t get over [name]Theodore[/name] and the chipmunks. Also love [name]Atticus[/name], [name]Dmitri[/name], [name]Jude[/name], and [name]Thaddeus[/name]. Good luck!!

Malik[/name]: I only think of “lick”


LOL. This is why I love nameberry.

Why not [name]Alastair[/name]? Isn’t that the real version? I like [name]Evander[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name] too.

Ditto all except the [name]Silas[/name] and [name]Soren[/name] love them!!! [-: + [name]Phineas[/name] is pronuced Finius

If the name isn’t there…Please don’t consider it. I gave some good reason for some good and not so good choices, but they are better than the No’s.

[name]Dashiell[/name]—[name]Dash[/name]! [name]How[/name] cute is that!
[name]Ezra[/name]—That”s my bestie”s son”s name. Actually it”s [name]Ezra[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name].
[name]Leander[/name]—Huumm”kinda nice once you keep saying it.
[name]Malachi[/name]—I actually considered that till my bestie said ”like the lil boy in Children of the Corn?”
[name]Milo[/name]—That”s a dog”s name.
[name]Octavian[/name]—I know an [name]Octavio[/name] and he is the most horrible person in the world! No!!
[name]Remy[/name]—That is a an alcoholic beverage.
[name]Seamus[/name]—I am an adult and all I see is semen.
[name]Silas[/name]-[name]Love[/name] this name!
[name]Theodore[/name] “[name]Theo[/name]”—Huxtable.
[name]Xavier[/name]—Classic all the way around.

That’s a long list. I had one just like it – full of names that I liked the look of or the sound of. I finally had to take a step back and think about what sort of name I wanted – what image did I want to convey? Did I want a lighter or “heavier” name? etc etc. I finally decided I wanted to find a classic, but not well-used name, preferably one that conveyed our Scottish heritage. This helped a lot in narrowing things down.

My husband’s name is [name]Thayne[/name], a variation of [name]Thane[/name]. He has always liked his name, however was sometimes called, “[name]Wild[/name] [name]Thayne[/name]” in high school.
