We like:
[name]Miles[/name]-like but really common.
[name]Griffin[/name]-dogs name. would not be taken seriously and doesn’t age well.
[name]Simon[/name]-[name]LOVE[/name]!! This name is so sweet and cute and underused. The nickname [name]Si[/name]/[name]Sy[/name]/[name]Cy[/name] is so great. This name is perfect for all ages of a boy/mans life:)
[name]Mason[/name]-I like but very common.
[name]Roman[/name]-not a fan. I love [name]Roma[/name] for girl:)
[name]Leo[/name]-common but cute.
[name]Blaise[/name]-like fire? Please don’t.
[name]Oakley[/name]-is a surname that should stay one and has unfortunatly become a girl name.

We like:
[name]Miles[/name] - love, but where I live it is getting popular.
[name]Griffin[/name] - cool
[name]Simon[/name] - love
[name]Mason[/name] - not my style
[name]Roman[/name] - cool
[name]Leo[/name] - love
[name]Blaise[/name] - I think of a blaze.
[name]Oakley[/name] - has a trendy feel for me.

[name]Roman[/name] sounds like the strongest name on this list. I [name]LOVE[/name] the name and it reminds me of one of my grandmother’s amazing siblings --she had 15!

[name]Miles[/name] -doesn’t sound strong to me
[name]Griffin[/name] -I like this a lot. Makes me think of a [name]Griffen[/name]. Great image.
[name]Simon[/name] -Feels nerdy
[name]Mason[/name] -I like the sound of this name…
[name]Roman[/name] -My favourite from your list
[name]Leo[/name] -Like
[name]Blaise[/name] -Feels feminine…
[name]Oakley[/name] -I know oak trees are strong but this name is not my taste. Trendy…?

What about [name]Maynard[/name]?

[name]Miles[/name]- I quite like [name]Miles[/name]. It’s taking me a while to look past the noun part of it but once I get there, I love it. However, it seems a bit poetic and airy to me: not that thats a bad thing but it doesn’t conjure up a ‘strong name’ image to me.

[name]Griffin[/name]- [name]Griffin[/name] is okay. I can see its appeal but its personally not my style. I love the nn [name]Finn[/name] though. I also love [name]Finnian[/name]/[name]Finnigan[/name]/[name]Finlay[/name]

[name]Simon[/name]- I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Simon[/name]!! It’s an underused, beautiful old name. I love the nn [name]Si[/name] and it feels very masculine and strong to me.

[name]Mason[/name]- it’s nice. I prefer [name]Miles[/name], though [name]Mason[/name] sounds more strong to me.

[name]Roman[/name]- this feels the opposite of strong to me :slight_smile: I think of the name [name]Romeo[/name] and ultimate romance and tragedy: not exactly the ingredients of a strong image. I also am not partial to the name.

[name]Leo[/name]- I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Leo[/name]! It’s fresh and spunky. If you feel it’s too nick-namey, I think [name]Leonard[/name] or [name]Leonardo[/name] nn [name]Leo[/name] is wonderful!

[name]Blaise[/name]- hmm, I’m not sure. It’s definitely not my style but maybe it would pass my “rules” :slight_smile: I do think of the word ‘blaze’ which automatically leads to the thought that it is a name for a pet.

[name]Oakley[/name]- besides thinking of [name]Annie[/name] [name]Oakley[/name], I feel it is trendy and a surname that should remain one. It is getting increasingly popular on girls, which doesn’t contribute to a ‘strong boy name’ appeal you’re going for. I wouldn’t use this one if I were you (however, I’m not, so this is just my opinion :slight_smile:

My favorites by far are [name]Simon[/name] and [name]Leo[/name]. Some other names you may like:


Good luck :slight_smile:

From your list, [name]Miles[/name], [name]Simon[/name], and [name]Leo[/name] are my favorites, but when it comes to images of strength, [name]Griffin[/name] and [name]Roman[/name] seems to fit that image most to me.

Names like [name]Miles[/name], [name]Simon[/name], and [name]Leo[/name]:



[name]Abbott[/name] (nn [name]Abe[/name])

Names that remind me of [name]Griffin[/name]:

[name]Finn[/name] (I love how [name]Griffin[/name] can go by [name]Finn[/name]…)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I like your list but I have to vote for [name]Miles[/name]! 10/10

[name]Miles[/name] - Doesn’t convey “strong” to me at all. I think of this as kind of a fussy name
[name]Griffin[/name] - This is pretty good… I like all things mystical :slight_smile:
[name]Simon[/name] - [name]Love[/name] [name]Simon[/name], but I see this more as “sweet” than “strong”
[name]Mason[/name] - The last two Masons I met were girls, if that matters to you
[name]Roman[/name] - The “strongest” of the bunch, in my opinion
[name]Leo[/name] - [name]Leo[/name] is great, my favorite from your list.
[name]Blaise[/name] - No. That’s all.
[name]Oakley[/name] - I don’t like this as a given name.

Good luck!

[name]Miles[/name] ” I find [name]Miles[/name] quite attractive, but the growing popularity is off-putting for me. If it isn”t for you, though, then I don”t think it matters.
[name]Griffin[/name] ” [name]Griffin[/name] is so nice. I just can”t not love it. :3
[name]Simon[/name] ” I love [name]Simon[/name] as well. [name]Simon[/name] conjures up the image of an intelligent, quiet yet friendly boy for me.
[name]Mason[/name] ” [name]Mason[/name]”s all right; but it seems like I”m seeing it more and more now, especially after [name]Edward[/name] [name]Mason[/name] from Twilight.
[name]Roman[/name] ” [name]Roman[/name] is so lovely, but there”s been the recent [name]Roman[/name] Polanski incident, so that”s what I think of.
[name]Leo[/name] ” I adore [name]Leo[/name]! I love it both as a full name and as a nickname. (:
[name]Blaise[/name] ” I adore [name]Blaise[/name] as well. This spelling is SO much more stylish than [name]Blaze[/name].
[name]Oakley[/name] ” [name]Oakley[/name]”s okay; it seems quite cowboy-ish to me, too, but I think its fine.
