  • Oliver: 16 (40%)
  • Sebastien: 4 (10%)
  • Tristen: 3 (8%)
  • Jasper: 7 (18%)

Hmm, that was a tough one. In the end, I chose [name]Jasper[/name], however.

[name]Julian[/name]: It was close between [name]Julian[/name] and [name]Jasper[/name], but [name]Jasper[/name] just seemed more masculine than [name]Julian[/name]. As in, [name]Julia[/name], [name]Juliet[/name], etc.
[name]Oliver[/name]: I really like this name and the cute nickname [name]Ollie[/name], but the “liver” bit is a con for me.
[name]Sebastien[/name]: It doesn’t have any nicknames that I like, and it seems a bit long to be without them.
[name]Tristen[/name]: Simply because it seems like it will be unisex soon, and I like the original spelling of [name]Tristan[/name] better.
[name]Jasper[/name]: I really like this name, as I do all the others. But this one is my favorite. :slight_smile: It just seems so fresh and positive. I don’t like the nickname [name]Jas[/name], and [name]Jasper[/name] is short enough to be without a middle name.

What about combining some of the names for combos?

[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Julian[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Tristen[/name]
[name]Oliver[/name] [name]Sebastien[/name]
[name]Tristen[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]

Or a completely different name:
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Finley[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Brenton[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Isaiah[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Anthony[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Andrew[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Lucas[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Seamus[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Elijah[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Timothy[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name]
[name]Jasper[/name] [name]Jameson[/name]

Good luck!

I chose [name]Oliver[/name], although if you had spelled [name]Sebastien[/name] as [name]Sebastian[/name], I would have chose that. I love [name]Jasper[/name] too.

[name]Hi[/name]! I voted for [name]Oliver[/name], but I also love [name]Jasper[/name]. :slight_smile:

Good luck!


I was between [name]Julian[/name] and [name]Jasper[/name], but I voted for [name]Julian[/name] because I just really like it!

(You might be swayed away from it, though, by the fact that it is used for girls and is similar to [name]Julia[/name], etc., but I think it is a great boy’s name!)

I really do not like [name]Jasper[/name], I love [name]Tristen[/name] but for a girl.
I really like [name]Oliver[/name] and [name]Sebastian[/name]. [name]Seb[/name] for short maybe? Good luck.

[name]Oliver[/name] by a mile.
The others all sound like kids that would get beaten up at school. Or maybe just the schools I went to.

Lol - [name]Oliver[/name] isn’t exactly a tough guy either :slight_smile:

My take on these names is about the same as yours. I seem to have a like/don’t like relationship with [name]Oliver[/name]. I like the full name, but neither the [name]Olive[/name] or liver aspects of it, and I don’t care for the nn [name]Ollie[/name] (that reminds me of Oily).

I think these names go together well as a “group”, but to actually use one of these, it would have to be [name]Jasper[/name] for me.
