Sheridan

[name_m]Just[/name_m] for fun, I am looking for thoughts on the name [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] for a boy and possible mn ideas.

[name_f]My[/name_f] initial reaction is preferring [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] on a girl. Perhaps because it sounds like [name_f]Sharon[/name_f]? Obviously [name_u]Sheldon[/name_u] is similar too, but that name has always sounded a little wimpy to me! I do think it would make a great middle name though - it would add a certain level of refinery.

Middle name ideas:
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Casper[/name_m]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Wylie[/name_u]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Matthias[/name_m]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Louis[/name_m]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Pike[/name_m]

[name_f]My[/name_f] immediate connection now is with a contestant on the [name_m]Bachelor[/name_m] spin off Listen to Your Heart (I know not all people would have this association, but it’s the only one I have). [name_f]My[/name_f] thoughts on the name initially were that [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] seems a bit feminine for a boy, I think because of its similarity to [name_f]Sharon[/name_f], [name_f]Cheryl[/name_f] etc. Now that I’ve seen it on a male, I think it could work. Maybe balance it out with a stronger middle name. It doesn’t have great nickname options if that’s important to you… [name_u]Sher[/name_u]? [name_m]Dan[/name_m]? Riddy?

[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] I do actually prefer on a boy. I think that when unisex surname-type (but historically predominantly male) names like this are used (and become trendy) for girls and then that trend dies out for a while, the name feels fresh again for a boy (I feel similarly about [name_u]Cassidy[/name_u], [name_u]Ashley[/name_u], [name_u]Sydney[/name_u]…) I do heavily associate [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] with expensive linen due to the well known luxury brand by this name, however, this may just be an Australian thing?

[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] seems to work particularly well with other [name_f]English[/name_f]-surname-type names…some suggestions: [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Hayes[/name_u], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Brooks[/name_m], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Bryce[/name_u], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Luca[/name_u], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Carter[/name_u], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Hugo[/name_m], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_f]Greer[/name_f], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Beau[/name_u], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Heath[/name_m], [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Reid[/name_u]…

Thanks. As a [name_u]Haley[/name_u] I know all about having limited options for nicknames, haha. I like

[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Blaise[/name_u]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_m]Xander[/name_m] (although I think I prefer [name_m]Xavier[/name_m] in place of [name_m]Xander[/name_m]).

Thanks [name_f]Sunniva[/name_f]. I actually do like names such as [name_u]Cassidy[/name_u], [name_u]Ashley[/name_u] and [name_u]Sydney[/name_u] on boys too. As you say, they seem much more fresh on boys. Of your suggestions I like

[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Hayes[/name_u]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Brook[/name_u](e)(s)
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_f]Greer[/name_f]
[name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_u]Beau[/name_u]/[name_u]Bo[/name_u]

But I ADORE [name_u]Sheridan[/name_u] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f].
