I think I have my names list sorted out but I am looking for opinions. Right now I have 15, I would like to get it to a top 10 but it is not 100% necessary.

[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] (still trying to decide which [name]Eliot[/name] spelling I like the best)
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]”
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]”
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]”(now that you can see the list in its entirety do you prefer [name]Callum[/name], [name]Callan[/name] or [name]Calvin[/name] with the list)
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name]
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]”
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]”
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] ([name]Kerrigan[/name] is a family surname)

[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name]

Thanks :slight_smile:

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Dean[/name] and [name]Michael[/name] is nice with it
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] (still trying to decide which [name]Eliot[/name] spelling I like the best) - I like [name]Eliot[/name], its all boy and no frills to me! I like [name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name]
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]” - [name]Breccan[/name] really livens up the boring [name]Charles[/name]!
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]” - very rough and tough, which I like
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]”(now that you can see the list in its entirety do you prefer [name]Callum[/name], [name]Callan[/name] or [name]Calvin[/name] with the list) - I like [name]Callan[/name] because it seems the rarest, [name]Calvin[/name] would be my least favorite because it seems more dated and stuffy, they are all nice though, but you seem to favor [name]Callum[/name] :smiley:
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Beckett[/name] and [name]Daniel[/name] is nice because it does not detract from it
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” - [name]Love[/name] [name]Nathan[/name] nn [name]Nate[/name]!
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” - very strong
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] ([name]Kerrigan[/name] is a family surname) - [name]Kerrigan[/name] seems really feminine to me but as a mn I don’t think it will be to big of an issue
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] - I picture a very cool guy, VERY COOL lol!
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” - I like the balance of average and unique here, good job!
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] - [name]Arthur[/name] is NMS but I love [name]Christian[/name]
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] (could be [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name] as well ) - I prefer [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name] but either way is great
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - I love [name]Vincent[/name] for the nns [name]Vinny[/name] and and [name]Vince[/name]
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - I like it a lot.

The 5 I would drop to give you 10 would be [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name], [name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name], [name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name], [name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] and [name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] but really I did not like any of them enough to drop them :smiley:

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] - I know you’re set on this so I’m not going to say anything too un-nice. :slight_smile: [name]Dean[/name] and [name]Michael[/name] are both quite boring to me, but I know this combo means a lot to you personally.
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] (still trying to decide which [name]Eliot[/name] spelling I like the best) - I like this but I would actually like [name]Matthew[/name] [name]Elliot[/name] more, personally.
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]” - like. I love [name]Charles[/name] nn [name]Charlie[/name], and I think [name]Breccan[/name] pairs with it well. I don’t have one [name]Charles[/name] combo I love but this is one of my favorites that I like.
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]” - I adore [name]Dominic[/name]! I usually shove it in the mn spot because I can’t find a full combo I like, though. Which is the case here. I’m not a huge fan of [name]Abram[/name] in general, and I especially don’t like it with [name]Dominic[/name], sorry. It just feels very mismatched.
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]”(now that you can see the list in its entirety do you prefer [name]Callum[/name], [name]Callan[/name] or [name]Calvin[/name] with the list) - love! I prefer [name]Calvin[/name], but I think [name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] suits your list more.
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - love! Perfection. My utter favorite from your list. :slight_smile:
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” - love [name]Jude[/name] and [name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] is nice… I just don’t like [name]Nathan[/name]. Or [name]Nate[/name].
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” - love the combo, the fn, and the nn… definitely my second favorite after [name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name].
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] ([name]Kerrigan[/name] is a family surname) - love [name]Henry[/name] and I love the use of the family surname. [name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] feels mismatched stylistically, but I love that it’s a family name so much that I’d overlook it. It’s very nice.
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] - I don’t like how the "S"s smoosh into each other, and that usually doesn’t bother me. I like [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Blaise[/name] a lot more!
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” - love! Definitely top five for you. I looove [name]Samuel[/name]. :slight_smile:
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] - both nice names but I like [name]Christian[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] so much more!
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] (could be [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name] as well) - actually not a fan of either of these at all, sorry. [name]Anthony[/name] has always felt pretentious to me, I don’t know why, and [name]Richard[/name] has always seemed like such a weird name to me, lol. It’s classic, but it’s basically my last name and it’s so weird to think of a person with the name.
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - not a fan of either of these, either, sorry.
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - like both of these names a lot but I like [name]Jack[/name] [name]Raphael[/name] so much more!

[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name], [name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name], and [name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] are my favorites!

Oops I am sorry my last comment should read that I do not DISLIKE any of them enough to drop them! I did not mean to say that I did not like any of them, they are all wonderful. Sorry if I caused any confusions!

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] - Feels boring to me, but it is a nice classic name I can’t argue with.
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] - Prefer [name]Elliot[/name] with two L’s, cute name
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]” - Like this a lot!
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]” - Not a fan
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]” - If I had to choose one, it would be [name]Callan[/name], but nms!
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” - Not a fan of [name]Nathan[/name], but love both [name]Nate[/name] and [name]Jude[/name]
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” - NMS, too biblical for me.
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] ([name]Kerrigan[/name] is a family surname) - Something about this doesn’t flow right for me
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] - NMS
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” - I like “[name]Sam[/name]” but not a fan of [name]Samuel[/name], never have been
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] - [name]Don[/name]'t like the flow!
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] - Prefer [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name]
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - I like this, but it doesn’t seem to fit with your list!
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - Sorry! This will always be a Ninja [name]Turtle[/name] for me :frowning: [name]Love[/name] [name]Jack[/name] though

Favorites would be [name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name], [name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name], & [name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] – I don’t like this one, but I know how much you love it, which is all that matters!
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] – Handsome! I very much prefer the spelling [name]Elliott[/name].
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] – i know a guy named Breccan! I think I would like [name]Breccan[/name] [name]Charles[/name] better, but it’s still a nice combo.
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] – love!
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]” – nms but it’s not a bad combo
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] – still really dislike [name]Beckett[/name] and this combo isn’t good to me so i’m no help here
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” – [name]LOVE[/name]!
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” – This is very nice and I love the soft [name]Gabriel[/name] with the more masculine [name]Joseph[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] – I think I would prefer [name]Kerrigan[/name] [name]Henry[/name] but it’s handsome
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] – again, I think I would like it better [name]Sebastian[/name] [name]Blaise[/name] but This makes me think of a boy with dimples and a mischievous smile.
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” – dislike [name]Aloysius[/name] but it sounds nice with [name]Samuel[/name]
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] – very nice
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] – I much prefer [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name]!
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] – love it!
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] – [name]Favorite[/name]!

As you can see, I prefer the longer names first, but that doesn’t mean your combos are bad with the shorter name first. I love most of these combos! You’re list is definitely coming along nicely.

The 5 I’d get rid of – [name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]”, [name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]”, [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name]

That’s it, I can’t think of a 5th. I don’t dislike any combo as a whole (except that one) but just elements of them

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] - Like
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] - Like, prefer [name]Elliott[/name] spelling.
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] - Not my style and not sure I like [name]Breccan[/name]. Is this a family name as well, I’ve never heard it before?
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]” - I like [name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name], not sure about [name]Nico[/name] for a nn.
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]”(now that you can see the list in its entirety do you prefer [name]Callum[/name], [name]Callan[/name] or [name]Calvin[/name] with the list) - I don’t really like any of these with [name]Joshua[/name], but if I had to choose… [name]Callan[/name]… maybe.
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - Not a fan of this combo, it doesn’t seem to flow. I think it is because they both have 2 syllables.
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” - Like. I prefer [name]Nathaniel[/name], but this still has a good ring to it for me.
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” - Like.
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] ([name]Kerrigan[/name] is a family surname) - Like.
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] - I love love love [name]Blaise[/name], not sure about [name]Sebastian[/name] with it.
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” - Like.
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] - Again with the 2 syllable names together. It just sounds strange to my ears.
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] (could be [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name] as well) - I like [name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] of the two.
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - I’m not a huge fan of [name]Vincent[/name], but this combo sounds okayish… it has the 2-2 syllable thing but somehow doesn’t have the flow issues of the other two.
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - Again, [name]Raphael[/name] is not my favorite. The combo works though.

So if you’re trying to get rid of 5, my vote goes to… [name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name], [name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name], [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name], [name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name], and… a toss up between [name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] and [name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name].

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] - Not really my style but it’s nice.
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]. I personally prefer [name]Elliott[/name] but [name]Elliot[/name] is a close second for me.
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]” - Nice. I kind of like the mix of the classic [name]Charles[/name] with the more modern sounding [name]Breccan[/name].
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]” - I like it.
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]” - [name]Love[/name] love love. That’s all I can say :slight_smile:
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - It’s ok. Not a huge fan of [name]Beckett[/name] but I don’t hate it either.
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” - [name]Love[/name] it!!
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” - NMS but very nice.
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] - It’s ok. [name]Henry[/name] is nice. [name]Kerrigan[/name] reminds me of [name]Nancy[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name].
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] - Not a fan, sorry.
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” - Like [name]Samuel[/name] but I think [name]Aloysius[/name] is too out there for me. As a mn I guess it’s not too bad but I wouldn’t choose it.
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] - It’s ok. NMS.
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] - Not bad. Like both versions.
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - Nice!
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - Not a fan.

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name]- This is a fine name, but it’s not really my style. [name]Dean[/name] seems very southern to me.
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] (still trying to decide which [name]Eliot[/name] spelling I like the best) I really like this name. I named my son [name]Elliott[/name]. I picked that spelling, because it was the most popular 100 years ago, but I think any spelling if fine.
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]”- [name]Love[/name] [name]Charles[/name], not sure about [name]Breccan[/name].
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]”- Not my style
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]”(now that you can see the list in its entirety do you prefer [name]Callum[/name], [name]Callan[/name] or [name]Calvin[/name] with the list) I like [name]Callum[/name]
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name]- Not a fan
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]”- I really like [name]Nathan[/name]
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]”- [name]Love[/name]
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] ([name]Kerrigan[/name] is a family surname)- I really like [name]Henry[/name], but it’s quite popular
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]- [name]Love[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]”- Not too sure about [name]Aloysius[/name], I’m assuming it’s a family name.
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name]- [name]Love[/name] [name]Arthur[/name].
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] (could be [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name] as well) Not a fan.
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]. I really like this combo.
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name]. Can’t get on board with [name]Raphael[/name]. Too ninja turtle to me.

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] - Dont care for.
[name]Eliot[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] - This is okay. I’d go with [name]Elliot[/name].
[name]Charles[/name] [name]Breccan[/name] “[name]Charlie[/name]” - Its okay.
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] “[name]Nico[/name]” - I especially like [name]Nico[/name] as a NN.
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] “[name]Cal[/name]” - Dont care for.
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - Dont care for.
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name] “[name]Nate[/name]” - This is cute.
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] “[name]Gabe[/name]” - [name]LOVE[/name].
[name]Henry[/name] [name]Kerrigan[/name] - Dont care for.
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name] - [name]Love[/name]!!
[name]Samuel[/name] [name]Aloysius[/name] “[name]Sam[/name]” - Dont know how to pronounce the middle, but I do like [name]Samuel[/name].
[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] - Dont care for [name]Arthur[/name].
[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] - Dont care for.
[name]Vincent[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] - I’d go with [name]Andrew[/name] [name]Vincent[/name].
[name]Raphael[/name] [name]Jack[/name] - Its okay.

I like some of the first names but something feels a little off about a lot of the combo’s, maybe a little dated I’m not sure…

[name]Dean[/name] [name]Michael[/name] screams dated to me, although I’ve read that it means so much to you. The youngest [name]Dean[/name] I know is 13 years old but most are over 18 years old so I can’t picture it being used these days. [name]Michael[/name] is a nice enough middle name. I would prefer something like [name]Dominic[/name] Micahel or [name]Declan[/name] [name]Michael[/name].

[name]Eliot[/name] isn’t my favourite spelling at all - I am more familiar with the [name]Elliott[/name] spelling. [name]Elliot/name [name]Matthew[/name] would be a nice combo.

[name]Charles[/name] is definitely a classic, and the nn [name]Charlie[/name] is cute but a little tiresome considering how popular it is in the UK. I don’t like [name]Breccan[/name] at all. [name]Charles[/name] [name]Andrew[/name], [name]Charles[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] or [name]Charles[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] would be cute.

[name]Dominic[/name] is a gorgeous name, I really like this one. [name]Dominic[/name] is a recognised name that’s never really been overly popular. [name]Nico[/name] is a gorgeous nickname and I do prefer this to [name]Dom[/name] or [name]Nic[/name]. [name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name] wouldn’t be my first choice combo but it does flow nicely. [name]Dominic[/name] [name]Avery[/name] sprang to mind as being a very handsome combo.

[name]Callum[/name] is a little dated to me, although I know the cutest 4 year old with this name. I do like the combo [name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name] so I do think it should be a keeper. [name]Callan[/name] interests me but most people here would just assume his name were [name]Callum[/name], as [name]Callan[/name] is an unknown name.

I really like think [name]Beckett[/name] but I did prefer the [name]Beckett[/name] [name]William[/name] combo - both names just seem to fit together. However, [name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] is still handsome and a really timeless choice.

[name]Nathan[/name] used to be my favourite boys name but then I found [name]Nathaniel[/name]. All the time I loved [name]Nathan[/name] I struggled to find a perfect middle name and was incredibly picky over combo’s. [name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Jude[/name] would be preferred but otherwise the combo contains 2 names that I really like so it would be one I’d keep.

[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] is gorgeous, and possibly my favourite on your list.

I like/love [name]Henry[/name], [name]Blaise[/name], [name]Samuel[/name], [name]Arthur[/name] and [name]Raphael[/name] (prefer [name]Rafael[/name]) but none of the combo’s.

[name]Richard[/name] [name]Anthony[/name] sounds like a middle name aged man so I guess I would prefer it as [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Richard[/name], but even then [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Jack[/name], [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Jude[/name] or [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Joseph[/name] would be all be much better.

[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] reminds me of the recent film “[name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christmas[/name]” so not sure I can take that one seriously.

[name]Elliott[/name] [name]Matthew[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Abram[/name]
[name]Callum[/name] [name]Joshua[/name]
[name]Beckett[/name] [name]Daniel[/name]
[name]Nathan[/name] [name]Jude[/name]
[name]Gabriel[/name] [name]Joseph[/name]
[name]Blaise[/name] [name]Sebastian[/name]

@sheflyswithherownwings - OOH I love [name]Anthony[/name] [name]Jack[/name]!!! [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christian[/name] is a lot like [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Christmas[/name] lol I never made the connection :stuck_out_tongue:
