I like all the classic boys names, but I also have southern Appalachian (Scotch-Irish) roots and I’m trying to find a boy’s name that best fits both (I’ll definitely use a nn). Any feedback on the following is appreciated.
[name]Joseph[/name]/[name]Joe[/name] (I’ve always loved [name]Joe[/name], but I’m worried that this name is much more popular in NYC/NJ than the Appalachian states)
[name]Henry[/name]/[name]Hank[/name] (I’m worried that [name]Hank[/name] seems like what we city-folk think of as a “country” name, rather than the real thing)
[name]Hugh[/name]/[name]Huey[/name] (I know this seems out-of-place, but [name]Hughes[/name] is a family name and this would be a nice way to honor. [name]Don[/name]'t know if it fits the laid-back image though)
Also, this is a weird question, but [name]Mack[/name] is actually a family name and I’ve always loved it. But I’ve never found a “legitimate” way to use it. Any way to do it that isn’t [name]Mackenzie[/name]/[name]Macaulay[/name] or some Mc____ name that I’d basically be fabricating?
So… which ones conjure up jeans and front porches?
