Hello fellow nameberries!
I have been lurking this forum since we found out the baby we were was a boy back in [name_u]December[/name_u] and really enjoyed all name suggestions posted here! [name_u]Baby[/name_u] boy was born a couple of days ago and I thought picking his first namn would be easy since we had narrowed it down to two options. Turns out, it is not at all easy!
I would really like some new suggestions and ideas of what to name him!
Backround is: Im Scandinavian, living in Scandinavia with my boyfriend who is born and raised in [name_u]West[/name_u] [name_f]Africa[/name_f]. We plan on living in Scandinavia in the foreseeable future and we want a name that works in Scandinavia, works in [name_u]West[/name_u] [name_f]Africa[/name_f] and in English speaking countries. I am not overly fond of traditional Scandinavian names and would like to stay away from overly popular names.
[name_u]Baby[/name_u] boy will have two honour names, one traditional from my boyfriend’s tribe and a male version of one of my names which honours my mother and her beloved grandmother. The traditional name sounds like Ati and the male version name satts with a L and ends in a -us sound.
We narrowed down our lists to two names before he was born:
[name_m]Leander[/name_m] - family name on my side. Works in both our countries but not common where we live. We just don’t feel like it is THE name. Boy friend told me this morning he feels like its not the right name and I agree. This was my top choice during pregnancy.
[name_m]Sylvester[/name_m] - we like it because it works in our countries, is not very common but well known. We think it sounds handsome. [name_m]Just[/name_m] not sure it is THE name.
[name_m]Amos[/name_m] - I don’t like the Scandinavian pronunciation and not sure we could get people to use the English one.
[name_m]Amias[/name_m] - i really like but doesnt work in [name_u]West[/name_u] [name_f]Africa[/name_f]
[name_m]Augustin[/name_m] - too close in sound to future possible girl’s name
[name_m]Thomas[/name_m] - a bit too ”boring” in my opinion. Boy friend likes
Hopefully you made it to the end of this post Pls give me some new suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated!
