As title says really - what are your favourite boys names and if you can why?

Adam
Luke
Edward
Dominic
William
Ben(jamin)
Marcus
Evan

All pretty solid traditional names. Not ones that will raise eyebrows in ten or twenty years. Not seeming to try too hard to be different or will automatically tie them to the decade in which they were born. Would not leap out at me with negative connotations on a job application form!

Gabriel.

Heavenly; divine; an Archangel name. I love the sound of it, and have done for 25 years!

We don't have any boys but if we ever do, Gabriel will be his name.

Zachary (but never shortened to Zack - so it's never on the list lol)

Couldn't tell you why, just love them!

Rowan - because I think it has quite hippy vibes whilst still being manly

Laurence - because it's a good strong name but shortens to Laurie which is cute and could even be Teddy (Little Women)

Barnaby - just love it

Asher - sounds nice, shortens nicely and a bit 'different'

Bartholomew - sweet and nice nn

Thaddeus - loved it since I was a teenager reading Stephen King

Roland - again to do with King
