Any ideas on unique boys names? Not weird ones, nice strong names that aren't that common but not 'way out there'!! lol

& Eric, Eli, Abe, Dominic. I love lots of names, Ivan (though I like the EU pronunciation better "eee van)

No, lol was meant to be laugh out loud! :-D

I have a Dylan, Rory and a Max...so Cory is out!! There is a few on here that I really like. Dh is quite fussy and all the things I like, he isn't that keen on!! Carsten is nice, never heard that before. Don't really like David etc...not that they're not nice names, just that I'm not really into very traditional names if that makes sense. This is soooo hard!!

Well you can't have 'unique' unless you make one up, but less used suggestions:
Corbin, Evan, Henson, Jed, Lorne, Jeremy, Robin, Saul, Simeon, Solomon, Isaiah, Peter, Ralph, Richard, Ray, Dane, Zane, Beau, Giles, Miles, Austin, Riordan, Heath, Linden, Lyndon, Leighton, Brody, Gregory

Caleb is really popular here, I know at least 4 boys under the age of 7 with that name.

Jonah is also really popular.

I like Diggory, Tristan and Sebastian.

Know at least 2:
Malachi
Max
Edward
Eric/Erik
Lucas
Luca
Alexander
Jonah
Jonas

A coupke of them even have a 'trying to be unusual but chose wrong' vibe to them IMO - albeit all really lovely names and actually who cares if someone else has the same name really?

What about Evan Alan Curtis Angus
Keir
Timothy
Samson
Donald
Brett
Greg
Peter
Kiel
Colm
Robin. ( I live Robin but was vetoed)

Britishseamonkey Sat 11-Jan-14 21:28:03

Ps- to prove no offence meant I have a Max! X

I have an Eirik and a Caspar. Both seem reasonably unusual but not too "out there".

marceline Sat 11-Jan-14 22:13:29

Taliesin - very old Welsh name. I love it.

muttonjeffmum Sat 11-Jan-14 22:18:32

I like soontobe Dylan, Rory, Max and Fergus combination. Dylan and Rory both have a celtic feel to them so Fergus goes perfectly. I just adore the name Rory - great choice.
