Tough Guy Names

I was looking at some of the boys names I love and I think a lot of them have a tough guy appeal, not all of them but a great deal. So it got me thinking what do you think are some tough guy names?

When I hear “tough guy,” I think of:

[name]Billy[/name] (<< Billy sounds MUCH tougher than William to me)
Mike (<< Mike sounds tougher than Michael to me)


These all seem tough to me. some of my favorites too…

[name]Mike[/name], [name]Tony[/name], [name]Vince[/name], [name]Vic[/name], [name]Shane[/name], [name]Gary[/name], [name]Terry[/name], [name]Dean[/name], [name]Mitch[/name], [name]Johnny[/name], [name]Graham[/name], [name]Alan[/name], [name]Kev[/name], [name]Phil[/name], [name]Craig[/name], [name]Steve[/name]…

Ha, it appears most of the names I consider ‘tough’ date to the 60s :stuck_out_tongue:

@alzora: Funny about [name]Billy[/name]. I don’t consider [name]William[/name] tough at all and [name]Billy[/name] seems even less tough. All I can imagine is a little boy. I can’t envisage [name]Billy[/name] on a man!


[name]Arthur[/name] (may just tough for me)
[name]Garett[/name] nn. [name]Rhett[/name]


I think of a lot of the 60’s names as well and a lot of them are very short and to the point.
