What imagery do these boys names give off?

Lately I’ve been getting fond of these names and wanted to get some thoughts on what sort of little boys you’d picture wearing them. Any vibes are welcome (appearance, hobbies, personality etc), I just want want to see what comes to mind!


Here are the children I picture with these names:

[name_u]Alden[/name_u]: A boy with brown tousled hair wearing a green woolly jumper. He’s got his shoes and socks off, standing ankle-deep in a stream, prodding at the river bed with a stick.

[name_m]Bastien[/name_m]: Beaming smiles, quick to laugh, full of fun and mischief!

[name_m]Cormac[/name_m]: [name_m]Long[/name_m] dark eyelashes, quiet and thoughtful.

[name_m]Otto[/name_m]: the boy from YouTube family Life with Beans. Freckles, academic, currently likes reading books about dragons!

[name_m]Willem[/name_m]: Sweet and kind. Loves riding his bike and full of cuddles for his family!

[name_u]Alden[/name_u] - it gives me outdoorsy vibes, but like, in a going fossil hunting, bird-watching, orienteering way. It’s got a slightly preppy/top uni vibe about it, a bit nerdy, but friendly and charming

[name_m]Bastien[/name_m] - sleek and stylish, has a refined, well-dressed quality to it

[name_m]Cormac[/name_m] - gives me imagery of rocky, misty landscapes and old sweet shops?

[name_m]Otto[/name_m] - always feels gentle and calm to me, but with a quiet strength

[name_m]Willem[/name_m] - a strong willed, determined sort of name

These are such cute descriptions! :revolving_hearts: I particularly love the ones for [name_u]Alden[/name_u] & [name_m]Willem[/name_m] (outdoorsy, curious, cuddly), and they resonate with what I hope for.

RE: [name_u]Alden[/name_u], I get what you’re saying on the preppy vibe, and I kind of dig that. Also love the idea of fossil hunting because as a kid I was outside “digging for dinosaurs” a lot LOL (in a place that rarely spawned fossils, but kid me could dream!)
