Please could I have a really long list of boys names?

I am finding it hard to find anything much I like, except for names that are "taken" in my family - I probably only like those ones because I know lovely people called them!

Hoping the more names I see the more likely something will stick...

Sub-thread - how bad is it to have a named that "matches" your existing child's name?

Example: my friend has given both daughters names of flowers (this is just an example as I am having a boy, but one name I do like "matches" my daughter's name)...

I think it's lovely when the names 'match'. I've always practised calling my kids and the new baby's names as if I was calling them for tea or from the park etc to see if they sound ok together... Eg winston and adolph may not go so well together lol

My boys are Austin, Fraser & Murray. I think they are a similar style so do match to a certain extent.

I also love Seth, Stanley, Digby, Patrick & Rory.

We have non matchy names, but they sound nice together.

Franklin! DC3 was a girl and I'm not having more, someone must have a Franklin!

Wow thanks everyone, that's lots to think about.

Sunshine: can only think of Ulysses or yoric with those letters - won't be going for either of those though!

TeWi - I've got a Franklin! I can't tell you how much I love that someone likes it.

I also really love Hugo, Vincent, Tobias, Victor, Theodore, Jasper, Ezra.

Mim, they wouldn't be my choice either

Mim78 Sat 12-Oct-13 08:36:52

Last night I suddenly got the name Ivan in my head (or possibly Evan/Ewan?)

I know everyone would say Ivan the terrible, but would that really be such a bad thing for a boy? Quite cool perhaps? Or is it just an awful name...

Coupon Sat 12-Oct-13 08:58:19

Evan is very nice and would avoid "Ivan the Terrible" jokes, which I'm sure would get annoying the 100th time you hear it.

Sunshinelaulau Sat 12-Oct-13 14:46:54

I like Ivan, who cares what jokes r said? I would rather unusual names to common ones but that's just my opinion smile
