Opinions on these Southern Boy's Names?

Hey Berries, just want your opinion on these Southern boys names! I know they may not be your style; but yeah, thanks! :slight_smile:

[name]Twain[/name] - Really loving this.
[name]Ronan[/name] nn [name]Ro[/name] - ([name]Non[/name]-negotiable)
[name]Austin[/name] nn [name]Ozzie[/name] - I know this is popular in the US, but it isn’t where I live. :slight_smile:
[name]Carter[/name] nn [name]Art[/name] - Like the occupational name.
[name]Hart[/name] nn [name]Art[/name] - Subtle meaning.
[name]Tennessee[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this because of [name]Tennessee[/name] [name]Williams[/name].
[name]Montgomery[/name] nn [name]Monty[/name] - I know this one is probably unusable, but I really love it. You’ll understand if you’ve heard [name]Midnight[/name] in [name]Montgomery[/name] by [name]Alan[/name] [name]Jackson[/name].
[name]Everard[/name] - A lake near where I live.
[name]Archer[/name] nn [name]Archie[/name] - Really like this!
[name]Marshall[/name] - An old family surname.
[name]Jonas[/name] - Liked this for ages, but it won’t go with [name]Ronan[/name].
[name]Logan[/name] - A family last name, but also clashes with [name]Ronan[/name].

[name]Twain[/name] -love the author, dislike country music
[name]Ronan[/name] -nice
[name]Austin[/name] -I like this a lot without a nickname
[name]Carter[/name] -same, like [name]Carter[/name], not so big on [name]Art[/name]
[name]Hart[/name] -Like it but with a name that’s already one syllable why use a nickname?
[name]Tennessee[/name] -I like this name, though I can’t imagine using it on an everyday basis.
[name]Montgomery[/name] - Same as above. [name]Love[/name] [name]Monty[/name]!
[name]Everard[/name] -Not sure how to pronounce this.
[name]Archer[/name] - its OK
[name]Marshall[/name], [name]Jonas[/name], [name]Logan[/name] -I like these three, though they don’t really feel Southern to me.

From a Southerner, I [name]ADORE[/name] the name [name]Hart[/name], no nn.

I also really like [name]Marshall[/name] and [name]Archer[/name]! Would love to meet a little [name]Ronan[/name] or [name]Montgomery[/name].

[name]Carter[/name] has a great sound but strong popularity. [name]Logan[/name] has so much usage for boys and girls, which is a downfall for me personally.

The others aren’t favorites, but there is nothing on the list I strongly dislike.

I’m a BIG fan of [name]Montgomery[/name]. It’s one of my guilty pleasures actually, and this name rolls through my brain on a very regular basis. Unfortunately, I can not disassociate it from [name]Montgomery[/name] [name]Burns[/name] on the Simpsons, so it is definitely unusable for me.

I actually really am loving [name]Twain[/name]! I adding it to my list!

I love [name]Hart[/name] as well. But in practical terms, it would be unnecessary and probably imposible to nn the kid “[name]Art[/name]” bc it sounds just like [name]Hart[/name], same length and everything, and most people don’t enunciate clearly enough to make those demonstrably different names.

[name]Twain[/name], [name]Austin[/name], [name]Hart[/name], [name]Tennessee[/name], and [name]Marshall[/name] strike me as very Southern. The others not so much. [name]Montgomery[/name], while geographically Southern, sounds more like a posh British aristocrat to me.

The nicknames for [name]Austin[/name] and [name]Hart[/name] are forced and unnecessary. [name]Tennessee[/name] is best in the middle spot.

[name]Hart[/name] nn [name]Art[/name] - love this one!
[name]Archer[/name] nn [name]Archie[/name] - I really love this too
[name]Twain[/name] - I like this too, it’s sorta fun and different but still familiar. [name]Kinda[/name] reminds me of [name]Dwayne[/name], which I don’t like, but that’s the only negative I can see
[name]Ronan[/name] nn [name]Ro[/name] - not sure I’d call this southern, but it’s a nice name.
[name]Austin[/name] nn [name]Ozzie[/name] - sorry but I’m not a fan, I should be, but I just don’t really like it.
[name]Carter[/name] nn [name]Art[/name] - this feels a bit soft to me, probably because of the baby clothes company. I prefer [name]Porter[/name]
[name]Tennessee[/name] - sorry, but I’m not a fan
[name]Montgomery[/name] nn [name]Monty[/name] - I think this is usable, especially as a middle name. [name]Ronan[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name]
[name]Everard[/name] - interesting, I like it as a middle
[name]Marshall[/name] - meh, not something I really like
[name]Jonas[/name] - love!
[name]Logan[/name] - A family last name, but also clashes with [name]Ronan[/name].

[name]Ronan[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] & [name]Archer[/name] [name]Twain[/name]

[name]Everard[/name] is really interesting!! I think I like it :slight_smile:

I also like [name]Austin[/name], [name]Hart[/name], [name]Carter[/name] and [name]Ronan[/name] - although I don’t really associate [name]Ronan[/name] with the south.

[name]Hart[/name] and [name]Marshall[/name] are the best!

Lifelong Alabamian here:

I like many of the names on you rlist ([name]Twain[/name], [name]Ronan[/name]), though I wouldn’t really classify them as “Southern boys.” The Southern boys would be, imo: [name]Hart[/name], [name]Tennessee[/name], [name]Archer[/name] and [name]Marshall[/name]. I am a big [name]Hank[/name] [name]Williams[/name] fan, but [name]Monty[/name] is not working for me. [name]How[/name] about [name]Hiram[/name], [name]Hank[/name]'s given name? That would be unique! :slight_smile:

I love [name]Twain[/name]! I also like [name]Ronan[/name] and [name]Hart[/name]!

My favorite from your list is [name]Marshall[/name]!
I also like [name]Archer[/name] a lot, but I would worry that it may sound dated in the future because its had such a spike in popularity. Though I like it better with the nickname [name]Archie[/name].
[name]Carter[/name] comes in third.
