Here is my favorite to least favorite list for the boys-
Julian-One of my all time favorites. [name_m]Just[/name_m] so handsome & polished & sweet & smart.
Asa-[name_u]Asa[/name_u] is just so peaceful & outdoorsy & thoughtful. But he’s not a sissy! He’s strong & rugged too. It’s unique yet fairly simple & is old fashioned. Lots of great qualities.
Henry-[name_m]Way[/name_m] way popular, but I love it anyway. It’s old fashioned & lovable.
Luca-It’s artsy & calming & beautiful but in a manly way.
River-Such a cool outdoorsy yet artistic name. I love those names that are rugged & gentle at the same time.
August-It’s really vintage feeling, but still fresh. Kind of outdoorsy & artsy & smart. And it has the adorable nn of [name_u]Gus[/name_u].
Benjamin-A beautiful strong classic. Really popular, but for a good reason. And has the sweet lovable nn of [name_m]Ben[/name_m].
Atlas-Super cool. I just love the sound of it. And it’s just a little bit exotic & interesting but still easy & not too out there.
Callum-I like this. It’s sporty & friendly. And I love the nn [name_u]Cal[/name_u].
Rowan-I like how this is botanical but sounds really strong too.
Owen-I like this as well. Similar vibe to [name_u]Rowan[/name_u], but more popular.
Otis-Really cute & a little quirky. Easy but not heard too often.
Asher-Really nice. Simple & handsome. Kind of an artsy feeling.
Nicholas-For some reason I really prefer [name_m]Nicolas[/name_m], but I still think that this is lovely. [name_u]Love[/name_u] the nn [name_u]Nico[/name_u].
Ira-I like this. A total old man name, but I can see it on a quirky artist type too. Simple & not popular.
Nathaniel-[name_u]Strong[/name_u] & smart & kind. [name_u]Love[/name_u] the sporty nn of [name_m]Nate[/name_m].
Elias-I like it. It’s my favorite [name_u]Eli[/name_u] name. Has a cool almost cowboy vibe, but also a bit artsy. [name_u]Eli[/name_u] is cute, but so popular.
Silas-It doesn’t super excite me, but it’s a nice name. Similar vibe to [name_u]Elias[/name_u].
Tadhg-I want to like this, because it’s Gaelic & unique, but I just don’t love the sound that much.
Maxim-I love [name_u]Max[/name_u], but something about this seems off. Maybe I like [name_u]Maxime[/name_u] more?
Vincent-Some days I find it handsome & some days it sounds sinister…
Idris-It’s interesting. I don’t hate it, but can’t get into it.
Leon-Sounds kind of weaselly.
Wren-I want to like it, since it’s a cool bird name, but just feel like it sounds drab.
Hope this helps.
