Please help us name baby boy #2

Wondering if you could help us make a decision between our top two boys names. We currently have a little boy named [name]Elias[/name] and are tossing up between [name]Sawyer[/name] and [name]Arlo[/name] for his soon to be little brother. Thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


I like [name]Arlo[/name] better.


  • [name]Jonah[/name]
  • [name]Micah[/name]
  • [name]Jude[/name]
  • [name]Seth[/name]
  • [name]Tristan[/name]
  • [name]Oscar[/name]
  • [name]Leon[/name]
  • [name]Cosmo[/name]
  • [name]Jasper[/name]
  • [name]Theodore[/name]
  • [name]Raphael[/name]
  • [name]Felix[/name]
  • [name]Sylvan[/name]

I like [name]Arlo[/name] better in general and with [name]Elias[/name]. They are more similar in feel. Also, this shouldn’t rule it out, but FYI [name]Sawyer[/name] is seeing a fair amount of use on girls, and for me that is discouraging for boy use, though you should if it’s your very favorite. But [name]Arlo[/name] seems the more natural fit.

Another vote for [name]Arlo[/name] :slight_smile:

I actually prefer [name]Sawyer[/name]! I love [name]Elias[/name] and [name]Sawyer[/name] together, and I like the literary connection with [name]Sawyer[/name]. What about:


Good luck!

I think [name]Elias[/name] and [name]Sawyer[/name] sound much better together and match closer in style.

I prefer [name]Sawyer[/name] over [name]Arlo[/name], but agree with pp that it is going to the girls.

We are expecting a boy also and the name [name]Sawyer[/name] is one that we have been considering. It’s a great name and will undoubtedly become a girls name if ppl don’t continue to use it on boys… :wink: I actually think “girl” when I hear the name [name]Arlo[/name]… ([name]Harlow[/name], [name]Marlow[/name], [name]Arla[/name], [name]Arlie[/name]) [name]Just[/name] a thought.
