What I like, he doesn't like.

These are a few boy names that i like:


But my boyfriend thinks they’re not manly enough. He wants a boy name that comes from history and that it also has to be strong and manly.

Any suggestions?

Here’s a few that might fit the bill (trying to find a middle road for you two)…

[name]Baldwin[/name] - Meaning: “brave friend”

[name]Andre[/name] - Meaning: “man”

[name]Everett[/name] - Meaning: “brave boar” (nn [name]Rhett[/name])

[name]Griffith[/name]/[name]Griffin[/name] - Meaning: “strong fighter” (nn [name]Finn[/name])

[name]Lincoln[/name] - Meaning: “town by the pool” (starting to rise, but I [name]LOVE[/name] it! Great [name]History[/name], too!) (nn [name]Linc[/name])

[name]Monroe[/name] - Meaning: “mouth of the [name]Roe[/name] river” (another fun presidential name)

[name]Truman[/name] - Meaning: “loyal one” (you get a president and a writer with this one!)

[name]Theodore[/name] - Meaning: “gift of God” (nn [name]Theo[/name] feels strong)

[name]Nero[/name] - Meaning: “stern”

[name]August[/name] - Meaning: “majestic, venerable” (really liked here on nameberry :slight_smile: ) (nn [name]Gus[/name])

[name]Jasper[/name] - Meaning: “imperial”

[name]Quincy[/name] - Meaning: “estate of the fifth son” (nn Q or [name]Quin[/name])

[name]Milo[/name] - Meaning: “mild, peaceful, calm,”

[name]Maxwell[/name] - Meaning: “great stream” (nn [name]Max[/name])

[name]Ian[/name] - Origin: Scottish version of [name]JOHN[/name] ([name]Ian[/name] [name]Fleming[/name], creator of [name]James[/name] [name]Bond[/name] - I bet most guys would like this name because of that :slight_smile: )

[name]Liam[/name] - Meaning: “resolute protection”

[name]Mack[/name] - (it feels strong to me) could be a nn for any of the following:
[name]Macaulay[/name] - Meaning: “son of righteousness”
[name]Maclean[/name] - Meaning: “son of righteousness” (pronounce it [name]Mac[/name]-cleen or [name]Mac[/name]-clayn)
