Opinions on some names


Trying to narrow down the list. What are your opinions on these names? Which would you keep, which wouldn’t you?

[name]Xavier[/name] (pronounced with a z not an ex sound)


[name]Abram[/name] - Feels old fashioned to me. Not really a fan.
[name]Adrian[/name] - One of my favourite characters in the Vampire Acadamy series! So for me this carries [name]Chuck[/name] Bass associations… :slight_smile:
[name]Anders[/name] - Ehh. I prefer [name]Xander[/name]/[name]Alexander[/name]/[name]Evander[/name]/[name]Lysander[/name]. [name]Anders[/name] makes me think of the surname of a stuffy literature professor.
[name]Anthony[/name] - I have never really liked [name]Anthony[/name].
[name]August[/name] - Cute! And I like the nn [name]Gus[/name] (not [name]Augie[/name] lol)
[name]Dominic[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name] this name! Very spunky :slight_smile:
[name]Elias[/name] - Fantastic name!
[name]Gideon[/name] - Giddy-up. Not really a fan.
[name]Isaac[/name] - Ehh. A bit boring compared to some others on your list.
[name]Jesse[/name] - This screams early 90’s to me.
[name]Mark[/name] - Boring although a nice name.
[name]Nicholas[/name] - Classic choice, fantastic name.
[name]Peter[/name] - Also a little boring for my tastes.
[name]Robert[/name] - I really like [name]Robert[/name]!
[name]Silas[/name] - I have been namecrushing on [name]Silas[/name] for awhile :slight_smile: Fantastic!
[name]Xavier[/name] (pronounced with a z not an ex sound) - [name]Love[/name] love love!
[name]Zachary[/name] - Fun and spunky! I love [name]Zach[/name].

My favourites from your list would be:

Some other names you might like:
[name]Ezekiel[/name] ([name]Zeke[/name])
[name]Xander[/name]/[name]Zander[/name] (or [name]Alexander[/name] as the long form)

[name]Gideon[/name]-cute, different
[name]Silas[/name]-I really like this one as well
[name]Xavier[/name] (pronounced with a z not an ex sound)-I like [name]Xavier[/name], but I would consider spelling it [name]Zavier[/name] to save the child many years of pronounciation corrections


I like [name]Anthony[/name], [name]Nicholas[/name], [name]Mark[/name] and [name]Robert[/name]!

[name]Abram[/name]- [name]Love[/name]. Vintage and SO underused.
[name]Adrian[/name]- I hear this on a girl too much now which has turned me off.
[name]Anders[/name]- Nice, but I prefer [name]Andreas[/name].
[name]Anthony[/name]- Prefer as a mn. It is becoming a little dated.
[name]August[/name]- [name]Love[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name]- One of my favorite names. I have a nephew name [name]Dominic[/name] [name]Vincent[/name]. [name]Dominic[/name] is so handsome and strong.
[name]Elias[/name]- Another name I love. So handsome!
[name]Gideon[/name]- I dont like the giddy part.
[name]Isaac[/name]- Strong and classic
[name]Jesse[/name]- [name]Kinda[/name] dated imo
[name]Mark[/name]- Very dull imo
[name]Nicholas[/name]- Classic, but very popular
[name]Peter[/name]- [name]Love[/name] [name]Peter[/name]. I think it is one of the underused classics.
[name]Robert[/name]- Eh, okay as a mn.
[name]Silas[/name]- So handsome, I love this one.
[name]Xavier[/name] (pronounced with a z not an ex sound)- I like this when prn as you do. The EX-zay-vier prn makes no sense to me. You will constantly be correcting people though.
[name]Zachary[/name]- [name]Zachary[/name] is a nice strong name. I hope it doesnt fade away and become dated.


These are my favs of your list. Classic and strong without being overused.
