Unusual word names for boys?

I have lots of word names for girls, but not so many for boys. I made a topic a few months ago just asking for word names for boys, but I’d really like some more unusual ones, brave but leaning more towards guilty pleasure. I generally like nature names, but any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Here are the ones currently on my list:

[name_u]Archer[/name_u]
[name_u]Atlas[/name_u]
[name_u]August[/name_u]
[name_u]Bay[/name_u]
Briarwood
[name_m]Caspian[/name_m]
[name_u]Everest[/name_u]
[name_u]Evergreen[/name_u]
[name_u]Forest[/name_u]
[name_u]Fox[/name_u]
[name_u]Grey[/name_u]
[name_m]Ives[/name_m]
[name_u]Jay[/name_u]
[name_u]Rain[/name_u]
[name_u]River[/name_u]
[name_u]Robin[/name_u]
Rosebay
[name_m]Rosewood[/name_m]
Woodlark

[name_u]Harvest[/name_u]
[name_u]Nightingale[/name_u]
[name_u]Meadowlark[/name_u]
[name_f]Evening[/name_f]
[name_u]Cove[/name_u]
[name_u]Midnight[/name_u]
[name_u]Lark[/name_u]
[name_u]Elm[/name_u]
[name_f]Moon[/name_f]
Moonlight
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u]
[name_u]Stellar[/name_u]
[name_u]Ocean[/name_u]

[name_u]Mariner[/name_u]
Seafarer
[name_u]Daystar[/name_u]
[name_u]Snapdragon[/name_u]
[name_u]Ocean[/name_u]
[name_u]Foxglove[/name_u]
Hemlock
[name_m]Tiger[/name_m]
[name_u]Larkspur[/name_u]
[name_u]Nightingale[/name_u]
[name_u]Bravery[/name_u]

I actually have [name_u]Nightingale[/name_u], [name_u]Meadowlark[/name_u], [name_f]Evening[/name_f] and [name_u]Juniper[/name_u] as girls names :joy:
But [name_u]Stellar[/name_u], [name_u]Cove[/name_u] and [name_u]Elm[/name_u] are lovely, thank you!

[name_u]Foxglove[/name_u] is really growing on me! And I like [name_u]Mariner[/name_u] and Seafarer. They would make a nice link to my grandfather who was in the navy :blush:

[name_u]Caraway[/name_u]
[name_u]Finch[/name_u]
[name_u]Oriole[/name_u]
[name_u]Polaris[/name_u]
[name_u]Thyme[/name_u]

I love [name_f]Gracious[/name_f] for a boy

[name_u]Cove[/name_u]
[name_u]Fox[/name_u]
[name_u]Oleander[/name_u]
[name_u]Brave[/name_u]
[name_u]River[/name_u]
[name_u]Forest[/name_u]
[name_m]Wood[/name_m]
[name_u]Oak[/name_u]
[name_u]Sparrow[/name_u]
[name_m]Bramble[/name_m]
[name_m]Redwood[/name_m]
Beam
[name_u]Cedar[/name_u]
[name_m]Tide[/name_m]
[name_u]Dusk[/name_u]
[name_m]Heath[/name_m]
[name_u]Haze[/name_u]
[name_u]Mirage[/name_u]
Water
[name_m]Clay[/name_m]
[name_u]Blue[/name_u]
[name_u]Thunder[/name_u]
Squirrel

I really like [name_u]Foxglove[/name_u] for a girl. I think because [name_f]Ffion[/name_f] is a girls’ name

[name_u]Valor[/name_u]
[name_u]Noble[/name_u]
[name_u]Dune[/name_u]
[name_u]Peregrine[/name_u]
[name_u]Ocean[/name_u]
[name_u]Legend[/name_u]
[name_u]Phoenix[/name_u]
[name_u]Brooks[/name_u]
[name_u]Aspen[/name_u]
[name_m]Talon[/name_m]
[name_m]Ridge[/name_m]
[name_u]Raleigh[/name_u]
[name_m]Calyx[/name_m]
Creed/Credence
[name_m]Fisher[/name_m]
[name_u]Forest[/name_u]
[name_m]Croix[/name_m]
[name_u]Poet[/name_u]
[name_u]Quill[/name_u]
[name_u]Revel[/name_u]
[name_u]Roux[/name_u]
[name_m]Gatlin[/name_m]
[name_m]Gunnar[/name_m]
[name_u]Honor[/name_u]
[name_m]Hart[/name_m]
[name_u]Hayes[/name_u]

Word names are my absolute favorite! :heart: [name_f]My[/name_f] three kids are named [name_u]Noble[/name_u], [name_u]Rune[/name_u] (daughter, but also works for a boy), and [name_u]Frost[/name_u]. Other names I love for boys and had on my list (though many work for either gender):

[name_u]Day[/name_u]
[name_u]Solace[/name_u] (Sol would be an adorable nickname!)
[name_m]Hawthorn[/name_m]
[name_u]Light[/name_u]
[name_m]Boon[/name_m] (prefer this “word” spelling versus the surname spelling)
Pond
Merryweather
[name_u]Cloud[/name_u]
[name_m]Astro[/name_m]
[name_m]Crow[/name_m]
[name_u]Merit[/name_u]
[name_u]Finch[/name_u]
[name_m]Everhart[/name_m]
Fray
Grimm (not sure if this counts)
Kite
[name_u]Marvel[/name_u]
Remedy
[name_u]Nimbus[/name_u]
Pyrus
[name_u]Vesper[/name_u]
Seabrook
[name_u]Evergreen[/name_u] (maybe more middle name)
[name_u]Vale[/name_u]

Sorry for any repeats and good luck finding just the right name. (:
