Tidying Up the Master List, Need Some Input, Part 2

[name_f]My[/name_f] last post already became much longer than I initially intended. Had to add a second part to get the Boys Names in!

Thoughts?
[name_u]Embry[/name_u] - Ok, be honest when you hear/see this name do you automatically think Embryo?
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u] - [name_f]My[/name_f] coworker says [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is too close to Phlegm to be usable. :stuck_out_tongue: Is it?
[name_m]Gareth[/name_m], [name_m]Griffith[/name_m], [name_m]Thane[/name_m], [name_m]Theron[/name_m] - [name_f]Do[/name_f] these names sound like you are pronouncing other names with a lisp?
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], nn [name_u]Sully[/name_u] - [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think dirty, spoiled, etc when you hear this?

Keep or Toss? These have been on my list for a long, long time. Thinking it might be time to get rid of them. None were as popular as they are now when I added them. [name_m]How[/name_m] popular are these in your area? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you love any enough that the rising numbers don’t bother you?
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], nn [name_m]Baz[/name_m]
[name_u]Charley[/name_u] - (Would be a nn or [name_m]Charleston[/name_m])

[name_m]Nolan[/name_m]
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m], nn [name_u]Ollie[/name_u]
[name_u]Reed[/name_u]
[name_u]River[/name_u]

This or That? Help me choose between these pretty similar names.
[name_m]Abel[/name_m], nn [name_m]Abe[/name_m] or [name_m]Abraham[/name_m], nn [name_m]Abram[/name_m]?

[name_m]Kellan[/name_m] or [name_m]Stellan[/name_m]?
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u] or [name_m]Kiernan[/name_m]?
[name_m]Langdon[/name_m] or [name_m]Langston[/name_m]?
[name_m]Laszlo[/name_m] or [name_m]Lazarus[/name_m]?
[name_m]Radley[/name_m], [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m], or [name_m]Rigby[/name_m]?
[name_m]Tobias[/name_m] or [name_m]Tobin[/name_m]?

[name_m]New[/name_m] Additions Recently added these. I know my style can be kind of quirky at times. I know not everyone’s going to love what I love but I would still like to hear some thoughts from people with a little more exposure to different types of names than most of my friends or family!

fun middle names -
[name_m]Arrow[/name_m]
[name_m]Bridger[/name_m]
[name_u]Hartley[/name_u]
[name_m]Kipling[/name_m]
[name_m]Merrick[/name_m]
[name_m]Quillan[/name_m]
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]

I was intrigued to see your boy’s list so I’m glad there’s a part 2…

Yes, [name_u]Embry[/name_u] does remind me of Embryo and I do giggle a little when I see it. I automatically want to add ‘o’ on the end whenever I say [name_u]Embry[/name_u]. I like [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] and [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], both perfectly usable and I don’t think see any problems with them. As for the other names I think they are fine and I know plenty of [name_m]Gareth[/name_m]'s who have never had a problem. [name_m]Thane[/name_m] might be the only with a problem, as people might think [name_u]Shane[/name_u]!

I would definitely keep [name_m]Asher[/name_m], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] and [name_u]Elias[/name_u] - I think these names are pretty close to perfection!

[name_m]Abraham[/name_m], [name_u]Alden[/name_u], [name_m]Cassius[/name_m], [name_u]Connelly[/name_u], [name_m]Silas[/name_m], [name_u]Dane[/name_u], [name_u]Everett[/name_u], [name_m]Jed[/name_m]/[name_m]Judd[/name_m], [name_m]Kellan[/name_m], [name_m]Kiernan[/name_m], [name_m]Langston[/name_m], [name_m]Lazarus[/name_m], [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m] and [name_m]Tobias[/name_m].

I know a baby named [name_m]Albie[/name_m] and I think it’s pretty cute, especially as a nickname for something more formal. [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] is the stand out from your new additions. It’s one of my favourite boy’s names!

Thoughts?
[name_u]Embry[/name_u] - Well, now. Before I just thought of the actor [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_u]Embry[/name_u]. I’ve never cared for it as a given name, anyway.
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u] - Again, I hadn’t even thought of it that way. I think it’s still usable, and it’s quite cute. I also like [name_u]Finn[/name_u].
[name_m]Gareth[/name_m], [name_m]Griffith[/name_m], [name_m]Thane[/name_m], [name_m]Theron[/name_m] - [name_m]Thane[/name_m] is the only one that sounds lispy to me, but I still like it. [name_m]Gareth[/name_m] is one of my favorite names. [name_m]Griffith[/name_m] is still too [name_u]Andy[/name_u] [name_m]Griffith[/name_m], I think. I don’t have an opinion about [name_m]Theron[/name_m] other than it reminds me of [name_f]Charlize[/name_f].
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], nn [name_u]Sully[/name_u] - Yes. Also monsters.

Keep or Toss?
I don’t really mind popularity, but I mind trendy sounding. So, I’ll pick according to that (and just personal preference, I guess).
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]- toss
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], nn [name_m]Baz[/name_m]- keep (and use! I’m trying to get as many people to use this name as possible to make up for my husband’s unnatural and scary aversion to it)
[name_u]Charley[/name_u] - (Would be a nn or [name_m]Charleston[/name_m])- toss
[name_u]Corben[/name_u]- I’m on the fence with this one. I don’t particularly like it, but it could work
[name_u]Elias[/name_u]- keep
[name_m]Finnian[/name_m]- keep
[name_m]Griffin[/name_m]- Toss. I love the fantasy association, but I can only think if Family [name_m]Guy[/name_m].
[name_m]Holden[/name_m]- Ok, so it’s trendy, but I still say keep.
[name_m]Isaiah[/name_m]- toss
[name_u]Jameson[/name_u]- toss
[name_m]Jeremiah[/name_m]- toss
[name_m]Nolan[/name_m]- toss (maybe. I don’t know. On the fence, again)
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m], nn [name_u]Ollie[/name_u]- keep
[name_u]Reed[/name_u]- keep
[name_u]River[/name_u]- toss

This or That? Help me choose between these pretty similar names.
[name_m]Abraham[/name_m], nn [name_m]Abram[/name_m] (if I have to choose one. I don’t like any. What about just [name_m]Abram[/name_m]?)
[name_u]Alden[/name_u]
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m] (the two syllable way)
Connall (neither?)
[name_m]Silas[/name_m] (love [name_m]Silas[/name_m])
[name_u]Dane[/name_u] (neither?)
[name_u]Everett[/name_u] (difficult choice, but [name_u]Everett[/name_u] is one of my absolute favorites)
Sorry, none of these for me. I almost picked [name_m]Zed[/name_m], but then I couldn’t get Pulp Fiction out of my brain
[name_m]Stellan[/name_m]
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u]
[name_m]Langdon[/name_m] ([name_m]Langston[/name_m] would be nice, but might be too hipster-trendy)
[name_m]Laszlo[/name_m] (100x over. Such a perfect name)
[name_m]Rigby[/name_m] (not [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m] for a good while, at least. Game of Thrones has the horrific monopoly on this for now)
[name_m]Tobias[/name_m] (another favorite)

[name_m]New[/name_m] Additions Recently added these. I know my style can be kind of quirky at times. I know not everyone’s going to love what I love but I would still like to hear some thoughts from people with a little more exposure to different types of names than most of my friends or family!
[name_m]Alben[/name_m]/[name_m]Alban[/name_m]/[name_m]Albus[/name_m], nn [name_m]Alby[/name_m]- All of these except [name_m]Albus[/name_m]. I like [name_m]Albert[/name_m] and [name_m]Alby[/name_m] on its own better than any of your choices, though.
[name_m]Arrow[/name_m]- Doesn’t seem like a name
[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]- Too much name on its own, and I’ve never liked [name_m]Barney[/name_m]
[name_m]Brenner[/name_m]- Sounds too trendy, for me.
[name_m]Bridger[/name_m]- Never liked this. Another trendier choice.
[name_m]Cabot[/name_m], nn [name_m]Cabe[/name_m]- [name_m]Cabe[/name_m] is ok, though I imagine it will be misheard as [name_m]Gabe[/name_m] a lot. [name_m]Cabot[/name_m] makes me think of cheese.
[name_m]Crane[/name_m]- Doesn’t sound like a name.
[name_m]Eben[/name_m]- Great choice. Handsome.
Gavric- Prefer [name_m]Gavin[/name_m]. Or [name_m]Gareth[/name_m].
[name_u]Hartley[/name_u]- Horribly trendy, to me.
[name_m]Huxley[/name_m], nn Hux- Too trendy. What about [name_m]Aldous[/name_m], if it’s for the literary reference?
[name_m]Jarvis[/name_m]- This is ok, but it sounds harsher than I usually like. Since the Iron [name_m]Man[/name_m] films are still so popular, it might be too tied to the character. I do love [name_m]Paul[/name_m] Bettany, though.
[name_m]Jessup[/name_m], nn Jepp- This sounds like someone trying to say [name_u]Jesse[/name_u] with the hiccups.
[name_m]Kipling[/name_m], nn [name_m]Kip[/name_m]- [name_m]Kip[/name_m] is great, not a fan of [name_m]Kipling[/name_m] (name or author, for that matter)
[name_m]Merrick[/name_m]- A little on the trendy side. [name_f]Merry[/name_f] is cute.
[name_m]Quillan[/name_m], nn [name_m]Quill[/name_m]- Could work in the middle. I’ve never liked “Q” names.
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m], nn [name_m]Shep[/name_m]- A little boring. You have better ones on your list.

[name_u]Embry[/name_u] - to be honest, no I hadn’t thought of that! I’m surprised I missed it.
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u] - [name_f]My[/name_f] coworker says [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is too close to Phlegm to be usable. :stuck_out_tongue: Is it? --NO. That’s like saying [name_u]Finn[/name_u] is too close to fig. They start the same and end differently.
[name_m]Gareth[/name_m], [name_m]Griffith[/name_m], [name_m]Thane[/name_m], [name_m]Theron[/name_m] - [name_f]Do[/name_f] these names sound like you are pronouncing other names with a lisp? - NO. except maybe [name_m]Thane[/name_m].
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], nn [name_u]Sully[/name_u] - [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think dirty, spoiled, etc when you hear this? - NO.

Keep or Toss? these are the keepers in my book:

[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], nn [name_m]Baz[/name_m]
[name_u]Elias[/name_u]

[name_u]Jameson[/name_u]
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m], nn [name_u]Ollie[/name_u]

Connallor [name_u]Connelly[/name_u]?
[name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] or [name_m]Silas[/name_m]?
Dade or [name_u]Dane[/name_u]? [name_u]Dean[/name_u]
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u] or [name_u]Everett[/name_u]? [name_u]Love[/name_u] both
[name_m]Jeb[/name_m], [name_m]Jed[/name_m], [name_m]Judd[/name_m], [name_m]Zed[/name_m], or [name_m]Zeb[/name_m]? (nns for [name_m]Jebediah[/name_m], [name_m]Jedidiah[/name_m], [name_m]Judson[/name_m], [name_m]Zedekiah[/name_m], and [name_m]Zebulon[/name_m])
[name_m]Kellan[/name_m] or [name_m]Stellan[/name_m]? tie
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u] or [name_m]Kiernan[/name_m]?
[name_m]Langdon[/name_m] or [name_m]Langston[/name_m]?
[name_m]Laszlo[/name_m] or [name_m]Lazarus[/name_m]?
[name_m]Radley[/name_m], [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m], or [name_m]Rigby[/name_m]?
[name_m]Tobias[/name_m] or [name_m]Tobin[/name_m]?

[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]
[name_m]Eben[/name_m]
[name_m]Huxley[/name_m], nn Hux
[name_m]Jarvis[/name_m]
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m], nn [name_m]Shep[/name_m]

[name_u]Embry[/name_u] - Not until you mentioned it.
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u] - I think [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is a fine name, though personally I think I prefer the [name_u]Flinn[/name_u] spelling.
[name_m]Gareth[/name_m], [name_m]Griffith[/name_m], [name_m]Thane[/name_m], [name_m]Theron[/name_m] - Not really.
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], nn [name_u]Sully[/name_u] - A little bit, yeah.

Keep or Toss?
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], nn [name_m]Baz[/name_m] - [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] is nice; [name_m]Baz[/name_m] is ugly.
[name_u]Charley[/name_u] (would be a nn or [name_m]Charleston[/name_m]) - I like [name_u]Charley[/name_u] (though I prefer [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]), but I think [name_m]Charleston[/name_m] sounds too much like a grandpa name.
[name_u]Corben[/name_u] - keep
[name_u]Elias[/name_u] - keep
[name_m]Finnian[/name_m] - toss, it sounds like a girl name
[name_m]Griffin[/name_m] - keep

This or That? Help me choose between these pretty similar names.
[name_m]Abel[/name_m], nn [name_m]Abe[/name_m] or [name_m]Abraham[/name_m], nn [name_m]Abram[/name_m]? I like [name_m]Abraham[/name_m].
[name_u]Alden[/name_u] or [name_u]Alton[/name_u]? [name_u]Alton[/name_u].
[name_m]Cassian[/name_m] or [name_m]Cassius[/name_m]? [name_m]Cassius[/name_m]. [name_m]Cassian[/name_m] is pretty, but it sounds like a girl name.
Connall or [name_u]Connelly[/name_u]? [name_u]Connelly[/name_u].
[name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] or [name_m]Silas[/name_m]? [name_m]Silas[/name_m]. [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] sounds too [name_f]Miley[/name_f].
Dade or [name_u]Dane[/name_u]? [name_u]Dane[/name_u].
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u] or [name_u]Everett[/name_u]? I love them both. Can’t choose.
[name_m]Jeb[/name_m], [name_m]Jed[/name_m], [name_m]Judd[/name_m], [name_m]Zed[/name_m], or [name_m]Zeb[/name_m]? I like [name_m]Jeb[/name_m] and [name_m]Zed[/name_m].
[name_m]Kellan[/name_m] or [name_m]Stellan[/name_m]? [name_m]Kellan[/name_m].
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u] or [name_m]Kiernan[/name_m]? [name_m]Kiernan[/name_m].
[name_m]Langdon[/name_m] or [name_m]Langston[/name_m]? [name_m]Langston[/name_m].

[name_m]Radley[/name_m], [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m], or [name_m]Rigby[/name_m]? [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m].
[name_m]Tobias[/name_m] or [name_m]Tobin[/name_m]? [name_m]Tobias[/name_m]. (And [name_u]Toby[/name_u] would make a nice nickname.)

[name_m]Alben[/name_m]/[name_m]Alban[/name_m]/[name_m]Albus[/name_m], nn [name_m]Alby[/name_m] - none of these really fit my style.
[name_m]Arrow[/name_m] - maybe
[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] - too close to [name_m]Barney[/name_m]
[name_m]Brenner[/name_m] - it’s got some charm, but it’s too close to the girl name [name_f]Brenna[/name_f] for me.
[name_m]Bridger[/name_m] - I prefer the simpler [name_m]Bridge[/name_m].
[name_m]Cabot[/name_m], nn [name_m]Cabe[/name_m] - I like [name_m]Cabot[/name_m], but I don’t like [name_m]Cabe[/name_m] as a nickname.
[name_m]Crane[/name_m] - no, too weird
[name_m]Eben[/name_m] - I prefer [name_u]Eden[/name_u].

[name_m]Kipling[/name_m], nn [name_m]Kip[/name_m] - nah
[name_m]Merrick[/name_m] - not really my style
[name_m]Quillan[/name_m], nn [name_m]Quill[/name_m] - reminds me of the werewolf named Quil in Twilight
[name_m]Shepherd[/name_m], nn [name_m]Shep[/name_m] - too boring

I’ve never really thought about embryo when I’ve heard [name_u]Embry[/name_u], but I really dislike the name anyway
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u] is a gorgeous name, very usable
I’m not a fan of [name_m]Gareth[/name_m], [name_m]Griffith[/name_m], [name_m]Thane[/name_m] and [name_m]Theron[/name_m], but I don’t really think they’re lispy, they’re just not my style
As for [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], all it makes me think of is Sulley from Monsters Inc! Very cute name
[name_m]Asher[/name_m] - toss, seen it everywhere lately so it’s annoying me now
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] - keep, a beautiful, underused name
[name_u]Charley[/name_u] - I prefer [name_m]Charles[/name_m] or [name_m]Charleston[/name_m], [name_u]Charley[/name_u] is a nn to me and very overused
[name_u]Corbin[/name_u] - toss
[name_u]Elias[/name_u] - keep, not my style but could work nicely
[name_m]Finnian[/name_m] - with [name_u]Finlay[/name_u]/[name_u]Finley[/name_u] being used everywhere right now I’d toss this
[name_m]Griffin[/name_m] - cute but not my style
[name_m]Holden[/name_m] - I know too many people with this surname to like it as a first name
[name_m]Isaiah[/name_m] - toss
[name_u]Jameson[/name_u] - toss
[name_m]Jeremiah[/name_m] - toss
[name_m]Nolan[/name_m] - toss
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] - seems to be used everywhere but I absolutely love this name, I don’t think its popularity would stop me using it as I think it’s a gorgeous name
[name_u]Reed[/name_u] - toss
[name_u]River[/name_u] - toss, or maybe use as a middle name

This or that;

[name_u]Alton[/name_u], although I don’t personally like either
[name_m]Cassius[/name_m]
[name_u]Connelly[/name_u]
[name_m]Cyrus[/name_m]
[name_u]Dane[/name_u]
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u]

[name_u]Kieron[/name_u]
[name_m]Langdon[/name_m]

[name_m]Cabot[/name_m] - don’t like this as a first name
[name_m]Crane[/name_m] - not my style at all
[name_m]Eben[/name_m] - don’t like this one, prefer [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] or [name_u]Evan[/name_u]
Gavric - too offbeat for me
[name_u]Hartley[/name_u] - [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] this!!! :slight_smile:
[name_m]Huxley[/name_m] - quite like this one
[name_m]Jarvis[/name_m] - too outdated to me
[name_m]Jessop[/name_m] - not a fan of this one
