What do you think? Plus MN suggestions.

Hey everyone,

I’m not pregnant (still a few years off I think), but I’m a huge name nerd and would love some feedback/input on my name list.

Some of my faves for boys are:

[name]Jack[/name] (too popular?)

Others kind of on the bubble are:

[name]Reed[/name] (maybe just as MN)
[name]Andrew[/name] (again, too common?)

What do you think? Also, what would be some good MN’s to go with these? LN rhymes with “Cryer.”

Thanks! :smiley:

To use names only from your list, my favorites are:

[name]Drake[/name] [name]Hudson[/name]
[name]Bryson[/name] [name]Drake[/name]
[name]Nathaniel[/name] [name]Hudson[/name]

I do like [name]Reed[/name], with something longer… [name]Reed[/name] [name]Alexander[/name]? [name]Reed[/name] [name]Zachariah[/name]?

In order of preference, with notes:

[name]Nathaniel[/name] – but only because I am in love with nn [name]Nate[/name].
[name]Jasper[/name] – I love this one, but I worry about increasing popularity. I almost spit when [name]Brad[/name] [name]Paisley[/name] & his wife named their child this; nothing against them, but it created a country-music band wagon, which is a band wagon I don’t want to be on.
[name]Andrew[/name] – you know, this is just a great name. I know it’s nowhere on the “modern” page, but you just can’t go wrong.
[name]Reed[/name] – I know you said maybe just for MN, but I like this. It’s fresh but uncomplicated and decidedly masculine (I think).
[name]Finn[/name] – again, I really like this name, but between [name]Julia[/name] [name]Roberts[/name] (she calls her [name]Phineas[/name] “[name]Finn[/name]”) and [name]Finn[/name] from Glee, it’s definitely on the up.
[name]Jack[/name] – well, of course this is super duper uper popular, but like [name]Andrew[/name], it’s a great name.
[name]Beckett[/name] – it’s a bit trendy, but it’s a pretty solid name.
[name]Holden[/name] / [name]Hudson[/name] / [name]Grayson[/name] / [name]Bryson[/name] (in this order) – to me these are all very, very similar, and sort of identi-kit. “Step right up & personalize your own -son name!” I’m sorry if your favorite’s in here. Of these, I definitely like [name]Holden[/name] best – [name]Holden[/name] Caulfield (although perhaps not the happiest literary namesake to have), plus at least you lose the “s” in the oh-so-popular “-son” ending. And I definitely dislike “[name]Bryson[/name]” the most (probably even more than [name]Grady[/name], below); to me it’s trying too hard to be a “new” version of [name]Bryan[/name].
[name]Grady[/name] – sorry, a little too old fashioned for me right now, but I fully expect to change my mind; it’s definitely a less popular option for [name]Brady[/name], which I like.
[name]Drake[/name] – this is a very fancy hotel in Chicago or a duck for me.

Thanks you guys for your input!
