Hi there.

I’m not sure why, but I’m not good at the 1/10 ratings. I’m just going to rank them from my favorite to least favorite & give comments. :slight_smile:

Lachlan-I really like this name. It’s sweet, kind, smart, but also sporty & a little outdoorsy. It’s not too common, & not too complicated, but just complicated enough.

Rowan-This is lovely too. I get a lot of similar vibes to [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m]. I think that it’s a little more popular, & also used for girls sometimes. It has beautiful nature imagery, but still masculine to me.

August-This is another one of those names that I can see as being sophisticated, rugged & gentle all in one. It’s old fashioned & is fairly simple but not too terribly popular. The nns [name_m]Augie[/name_m] & [name_u]Gus[/name_u] are both very cute too.

Jem-I love this, but really prefer it as a nn . I picture an adventurous little boy climbing trees, & can also equally as easily picture it on an executive. What do you think of [name_u]James[/name_u], [name_u]Jameson[/name_u], [name_m]Jeremiah[/name_m] or [name_m]Jerome[/name_m] nn [name_u]Jem[/name_u]?

Jacob-This is a great name. Smart, classic, handsome, kind, easy, grows up well. All of the good qualities. The only bad one is that it’s soooo popular.

Ferris-I like this too! The only thing that I don’t like about it is that the most natural nn is Ferry. It’s a great name though. Well known but unique, smart, sporty, witty…maybe I’m just describing [name_m]Ferris[/name_m] [name_m]Bueller[/name_m]. :joy:

Joby-I think that this has a cute sound, but it seems a little nick-namey. And I don’t know why, but I don’t care for [name_m]Job[/name_m].

Rory-It’s not a terrible name, but it’s not my favorite. I just find it a little hard to say & not terribly exciting either.

Gardner-I don’t know. I think this may get mistaken for gardener a lot. It seems sort of too last name-y.

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:

Rory - 6/10 much prefer on a boy as it is here but heard it a lot here in the UK recently.
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m] - 7/10 dependable classic
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] - 8/10 great sound, handsome, slightly more unusual
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - 4/10 nms as a plant/nature/word name but do prefer on a boy
[name_u]Gardner[/name_u] - 3/10 again, nms as a word/surname name but prefer sound of [name_u]Rowan[/name_u]
[name_u]Joby[/name_u] - unsure how to pronounce. [name_m]Jobe[/name_m]-ee? [name_m]Job[/name_m]-ee? Not sure how I feel.
[name_m]Ferris[/name_m] - 3/10
[name_u]Jem[/name_u] - 5/10
[name_u]August[/name_u] - 5/10 I’ve always preferred [name_m]Augustus[/name_m] but [name_u]August[/name_u] is a solid nb fave.

Rory 4/10 I don’t like the double RR sound.
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m] 7/10 it’s nice but it’s expected.
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] 8/10 perhaps one of the only an/on boys names i actually like.
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] 8/10 I really like it, it’s handsome but soft at the same time and I also like the name [name_m]Roman[/name_m].
[name_u]Gardner[/name_u] 1/10. No. It’s more like a surname.
[name_u]Joby[/name_u] 2/10 it sounds like a pet name. It’s not a solid name.
[name_m]Ferris[/name_m]. 3/10 as in [name_m]Ferris[/name_m] wheel?
[name_u]Jem[/name_u] 3/10 again it just sounds like a nickname.
[name_u]August[/name_u] 8/10 I really like it. [name_u]Love[/name_u] the NN [name_u]Gus[/name_u] too.

Rory - 10/10. so very handsome and sweet! I like that it’s familiar, but uncommon. I first heard the name thanks to [name_u]Rory[/name_u] Culkin, and immediately fell in love. I also only like it on a boy!!
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m] - 8/10. a name I’ve loved forever, I just wish it wasn’t so popular. also, not personally a fan of nn [name_m]Jake[/name_m].
[name_m]Lachlan[/name_m] - 10/10. handsome, cool, sweet. It has a really look and sound, and Lach/Lock is such a great nn!
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - 10/10. my second favorite boy name!!! Its so extremely handsome, and I love the nature connection. It makes me smile everytime!
[name_u]Gardner[/name_u] - 5/10. can work as a middle, but it isn’t my favorite.
[name_u]Joby[/name_u] - 2/10. sorry, not really a fan of the sound of this one. I prefer [name_u]Jory[/name_u] or [name_u]Jody[/name_u].
[name_m]Ferris[/name_m] - 9/10. handsome, sweet, unexpected. I love the [name_m]Ferris[/name_m] [name_m]Bueller[/name_m] association too!
[name_u]Jem[/name_u] - 9/10. sweet, soft, with some strength. the literary connection is a lovely bonus!
[name_u]August[/name_u] - 10/10. another one of my absolute favorite names! It’s just so handsome, soft, bright, and warm!

great list!!!
