I’m not 100% decided yet, but I think after almost 10 years of [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] being a top boy name for me, I might be letting him go
I do still really like the name, but the popularity is getting to me more. I used to be able to push it aside, but recently I just feel like it’s become one of those names that you can stick it in any sibset and it would work (like [name_u]James[/name_u] or [name_u]Michael[/name_u]). I’ve also been questioning my love for [name_m]Oliver[/name_m]. Am I actually still in love with the name, or have I just kept it on there because I’m used to it and attached to it?
The problem is that I can’t find any other boy names I feel a connection to or ones that go with my other top names ([name_m]Theodore[/name_m], [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f], and [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] - the E and O being in every name was unintentional). There’s lots of boy names where when I see them I go “awww I love that name so much” but it’s not the same connection as “that is what I want to name my future child.” I’ve also noticed that a lot of the boy names I like are super short and a lot of times trendy/have a trendy vibe to them, so very different in style to my other names and I’d really like for there to be a cohesive vibe between them.
So I guess I’m asking for suggestions. I’ve probably made 100 very similar topics the past few years looking for another boys name to add to my list of (hopefully but I know probably not realistically) future kiddos names, but I just can’t seem to find one. I’m really hoping something will click this time!
