Thoughts on these..

Hey!
What do you think of these baby boy names? Which is your favourite?

[name]Kian[/name]
[name]Braedon[/name]
[name]Brogan[/name]
[name]Joey[/name]
[name]Tyler[/name]
[name]Jason[/name]
[name]Xavier[/name]
[name]Nolan[/name]

Thanks :smiley:

[name]Kian[/name] - I think I like this one. The only problem is pronunciation problems. There is also [name]Keenan[/name] whose pronunciation is more straightforward.
[name]Braedon[/name] - not a fan of this one. It has a very trendy feel with the “ae” spelling and fits into the [name]Caden[/name], [name]Braden[/name], [name]Aiden[/name] group
[name]Brogan[/name] - I really dont like this one. All I see is the “Bro” part and I think of the word “bromance”…plus I don’t like the name [name]Logan[/name] and this is quite close
[name]Joey[/name] - this one is distinctly a nn to me. [name]Joseph[/name] is better
[name]Tyler[/name] - quite dated
[name]Jason[/name] - I dont like this one because its all Friday the 13th to me
[name]Xavier[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]
[name]Nolan[/name] - [name]LOVE[/name]

  • edited to add that [name]Xavier[/name] is my favorite :slight_smile:

[name]Kian[/name] - I like this a lot. I don’t think pronunciation should be too much of a problem
[name]Braedon[/name] - I agree, this is too much in the [name]Aidan[/name], [name]Jayden[/name], [name]Caden[/name] line for me
[name]Brogan[/name] - this reminds me of the Aussie term “bogan”, which sort of equates to ‘trailer trash’
[name]Joey[/name] - I like this as a nn, [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Joseph[/name] as full name
[name]Tyler[/name] - a bit dated
[name]Jason[/name] - I like [name]Jason[/name], bit it may also be a bit dated in the same way [name]Tyler[/name] (and [name]Brandon[/name]) is
[name]Xavier[/name] - this has grown on me recently, and sits on that perfect line of unusual/familiar
[name]Nolan[/name] - one of my all-time favourite names! It’s stunning.

Good luck choosing!

[name]Kian[/name] - [name]Just[/name] not my style. For some reason, I’ve never liked boy names beginning with a “K,” as I prefer strong, distinct masculine names, most “K” names seem girly to me.

[name]Braedon[/name] - Completely agree with both prev posters, part of the “[name]Aiden[/name]” trend and I’m not a fan of unusual spellings.

[name]Brogan[/name] - Completely agree about the bro/bromance association, and also its similarity to [name]Logan[/name], a boy name I detest.

[name]Joey[/name] - It’s classic, can’t go wrong really, but agree that it seems incomplete by itself. Think of when he grows up, [name]Joseph[/name] or [name]Joe[/name] will sound more professional.

[name]Tyler[/name] - Maybe it is dated, but it’s still in the top boy 30 names. I like “T” names, and I like [name]Tyler[/name], but it’s too popular for me to use. [name]Do[/name] you like [name]Tyson[/name]? It’s one of my top choices if we have a boy.

[name]Jason[/name] - Nothing wrong with the name itself, except for the horror movie villain, I suppose. Another classic. Agree it could be considered dated in the same way as [name]Tyler[/name] (and [name]Brandon[/name]). I’m a child of the 80s and I went to school with and have known so many Jasons over the years! Known several Tylers and Brandons, actually, too.

[name]Xavier[/name] - Agree with it fitting perfectly in the unusual/familiar category. I think it might be growing in popularity though, I see it suggested often on this board. [name]How[/name] are most people pronouncing it? I’ve heard it two ways while out in public. I prefer it with an “H” sound like “Ha-VIER” with a nn “HA-vi.” Doesn’t have the same appeal to me if pronounced with a “Z” as “ZAY-vier.”

[name]Nolan[/name] - [name]Just[/name] not my style, reminds me of [name]Logan[/name].

Good luck! Boy names are hard :confused:

I think of [name]Xavier[/name] as “ZAY-vi-er” and [name]Javier[/name] as “HA-vi-er”

[name]Xavier[/name] is my fave on your list.

From your list, I like [name]Xavier[/name], and second [name]Rica[/name]'s post (and the other posts, too). :slight_smile:

Good luck!

I have to agree with everyone.

Interesting about [name]Xavier[/name]/[name]Javier[/name], I have never seen it spelled “[name]Javier[/name].” That would definitely distinguish the pronounciation.

Yeah, like the actor [name]Javier[/name] Bardem. (“No Country for Old Men” and “[name]Vicky[/name] [name]Cristina[/name] [name]Barcelona[/name]”)
