Nolan- 7/10 A family name, so its grown on me! [name_u]Unique[/name_u] and soft. Also athletic!
[name_m]Joel[/name_m]- 6/10 I know a lot of Joels and they’re all either 24 or 64- but regardless they’re always very old souls and deep thinkers. [name_f]My[/name_f] one qualm is that it is a tad religious for me
[name_m]Cash[/name_m]- 6/10 [name_m]Johnny[/name_m] [name_m]Cash[/name_m]- the ultimate bad-boy rebel name! It’s not my style but I think it’s a good middle.
[name_m]Oren[/name_m]- 5/10 Still getting used to this one, I prefer [name_u]Eren[/name_u]
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u]- 8/10 I really like [name_u]Kyle[/name_u]! It’s friendly and a nice, easy length
[name_u]Logan[/name_u]- 6/10 Something about the g in the middle makes me uncomfortable but I have no idea why?? I love the softness of the ‘lo’ sound though.
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m]-7/10 A classic, really versatile! I love [name_m]Zack[/name_m] as a nn. I might prefer [name_m]Zachariah[/name_m] as a full

Nolan - I quite like this and it’s completely usable imo
[name_m]Joel[/name_m] - I can picture it more on a man in his 20s/30s than a baby, but I do like it
[name_m]Cash[/name_m] - I don’t really see the appeal of this as a given name, although as a nickname it’s ok
[name_m]Oren[/name_m] - it means orange in my language so a hard no from me I’m afraid
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u] - I don’t like it, especially as it’s become a meme in the past few years
[name_u]Logan[/name_u] - it feels a bit overused but it’s not bad
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] - love [name_m]Zachary[/name_m], by far my favourite from your list

Nolan 5/10 - I don’t have any particular thoughts about this name.
[name_m]Joel[/name_m] 7/10 - I quite like this name, but it’s a family name so I may be a bit biased.
[name_m]Cash[/name_m] 2/10 - It doesn’t really seem like a name to me but I can see it as a nickname.
[name_m]Oren[/name_m] 1/10 - This makes me think of orange (oren is Welsh for orange) so can’t see it as a name, even though it’s origin as a name is different. I prefer [name_m]Orrin[/name_m].
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u] 6/10 - It’s nice but a slightly generic name to me.
[name_u]Logan[/name_u] 8/10 - This is one of my top boy names.
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] 8/10 - Another one of my top boy names.

[name_u]Logan[/name_u] 5/10

Nolan 7/10 grew up with a [name_u]Nolan[/name_u]. It’s a sweet name.
Joel 5/10 it’s fine, but feels a little dated
Cash 4/10
Oren 9/10 [name_u]Love[/name_u] it but prefer the [name_m]Orin[/name_m] spelling. I’d give that a 10/10
Kyle 1/10 one of my least favorite names, sorry. I don’t like a lot of K names. I do have an uncle [name_u]Kyle[/name_u] and a female cousin named [name_u]Kyle[/name_u] after him and oddly enough I don’t mind it as much on a girl
Logan 7/10 Like it, no complaints
Zachary 6/10 Also v nice but not that unique

Nolan - 10/10. so handsome and sweet! uncommon, but familiar.
[name_m]Joel[/name_m] - 5/10. I grew up knowing so many, it always feels a bit dated and overused for me. I also only like the ‘jole’ pronunciation, not the ‘jo-ell’ one!
[name_m]Cash[/name_m] - 4/10. Reminds me of [name_m]Johnny[/name_m] [name_m]Cash[/name_m], which is nice. Also just reminds me of money though! I prefer it as a nickname (maybe to [name_m]Cassian[/name_m]!).
[name_m]Oren[/name_m] - 8/10. handsome, sweet, unexpected. love the nature association!
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u] - 2/10. Like the nickname [name_m]Ky[/name_m], but this name is extremely dated for me, sorry! I don’t mind it on a girl though!
[name_u]Logan[/name_u] - 5/10. a tiny bit dated, but I do like the sound of it.
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] - 6/10. I’ve known sooo many, it feels very overused to me. I also only like the nn [name_m]Zac[/name_m]!

Nolan - 8/10 - Quite handsome and I like the nickname [name_m]Nole[/name_m], but I prefer [name_m]Ronan[/name_m]
[name_m]Joel[/name_m] - 9/10 - Fun with a cowboy vibe!
[name_m]Cash[/name_m] - 7/10 - Same as [name_m]Joel[/name_m], but I don’t like that it literally means money, it feels a bit materialistic as a name. I prefer it as a nickname
[name_m]Oren[/name_m] - 10/10 - I adore this name! Simple yet unique, handsome and so underrated
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u] - 6,5/10 - I have a soft spot for this name because of people on my life, and I like the nickname [name_u]Kai[/name_u], but it’s pretty dated and a bit of a meme name
[name_u]Logan[/name_u] - 6,5/10 - There’a nothing wrong with it, I just dont get the appeal. Also, I dislike how there are no nicknames
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] - 6/10 - Feels a bit boring and dated to the 2000s, but it’d be cool with the nickname [name_u]Ari[/name_u]

[name_u]Nolan[/name_u] - 8/10 - my favorite on your list.
[name_m]Joel[/name_m] - 6/10 - I don’t dislike it but just so many other names I would choose ahead of it.
[name_m]Cash[/name_m] - 2/10 - I just don’t like this name.
[name_m]Oren[/name_m] - 2/10 - Another I just don’t like
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u] - 7/10 - Like @AerieEerie I know a young woman named [name_u]Kyle[/name_u] too. For me this is an okay unisex name. I actually prefer it more on a girl.
[name_u]Logan[/name_u] - 6/10 - X-Men association but it makes me think of logy too.
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] - 4/10 - any name that begins with Z is pretty cool to me :slight_smile: but I don’t care for it that much.

Nolan - 7

Nolan- 3/10 I just dont like the way it sounds
[name_m]Joel[/name_m]- 7/10 not a personal favorite but a nice name!
[name_m]Cash[/name_m]- 5.5/10
[name_m]Oren[/name_m]- 4/10 I like the O- beginning and -ren ending, but somehow just really dislike the sound of [name_m]Oren[/name_m].
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u]- 2/10 far too common/dated for my liking
[name_u]Logan[/name_u]- 5/10 very popular
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m]- 4/10 very popular/dated

Nolan: I like [name_u]Nolan[/name_u]! It’s simple, handsome, and both soft and strong.
[name_m]Joel[/name_m]: I’ve heard this pronounced both “[name_m]Jole[/name_m]” and “[name_u]Jo[/name_u]-el” and I definitely prefer the two-syllable version, but I’m not in love with the name either way. It also seems a bit like a dad name to me.
[name_m]Cash[/name_m]: not a fan, I just think like…cash money and it seems a bit tacky to me.
[name_m]Oren[/name_m]: haven’t heard this one before but it could grow on me!
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u]: decent, solid name but not my fave. a little dated, I think.
[name_u]Logan[/name_u]: handsome, solid, strong, I like this one.
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m]: lovely name with a nice graceful flow and the cute, solid nickname [name_m]Zach[/name_m]!

My favorites are [name_u]Logan[/name_u] and [name_m]Zachary[/name_m]!


I’ll list my favorite to least favorite-

[name_u]Nolan[/name_u]-I love this name. It’s in my top five favorite boys. It’s sporty & smart, but also has an air of gentle-ness. It’s super simple & well known, but doesn’t feel trendy.

[name_m]Zachary[/name_m]-This is just a good solid classic. It sounds smart & historical, but also a little cowboy-y. Especially w/the nn [name_u]Zeke[/name_u]. It is really quite popular though. But the nns [name_u]Zeke[/name_u] or [name_u]Zooey[/name_u] would make a [name_m]Zachary[/name_m] stand out.

[name_m]Oren[/name_m]-This is cool. Very different yet very uncomplicated. I’m a big fan of Hebrew names (my cat is [name_u]Ari[/name_u], & [name_u]Shiloh[/name_u] & [name_m]Liev[/name_m] are on my top six!), so this sounds very strong yet down to earth & I like it.

[name_m]Joel[/name_m]-Nice & simple. Not over or underwhelming, but a good not terribly over used masculine name.

[name_m]Cash[/name_m]-I kind of like it, but sometimes I feel like it just sounds like it’s trying too hard.

[name_u]Kyle[/name_u]-Meh, just seems a little 90s.

[name_u]Logan[/name_u]-[name_m]Way[/name_m] trendy & over done. Not terribly exicting.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

Nolan- 9/10, love but just a little too popular for me
[name_m]Joel[/name_m]- 6/10, solid
[name_m]Cash[/name_m]- 3/10, prefer [name_m]Cassius[/name_m] nn [name_m]Cash[/name_m]
[name_m]Oren[/name_m]- 4/10, seems incomplete
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u]- 2/10, dated and boring
[name_u]Logan[/name_u]- 6/10, solid but I’m tired of it
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m]- 2/10, solid but I’m bored

Nolan 2/10 can only think of the [name_u]Nolan[/name_u] Sisters which makes it dated to me, British problems
[name_m]Joel[/name_m] 5/10 it feels older, somehow, but there’s nothing wrong with it
[name_m]Cash[/name_m] 3/10, much prefer as a nickname
[name_m]Oren[/name_m] 4/10
[name_u]Kyle[/name_u] 3/10
[name_u]Logan[/name_u] 5/10 nms but there’s nothing wrong with it
[name_m]Zachary[/name_m] 7/10 I’ve taught several and they’ve all been lovely, so there’s that?!
