What is your favourite name for a boy?

(49 Posts)

I am so stuck on a boys name.
Since I was a child I have liked Brandon. I also like Rhys (I am part welsh). But OH doesn't like either.
He likes Logan hmm and the first name needs to go with the middle name Matthew (family thing).
I sort of like Damien (but my mum moans about the Omen film!).

What about Damon, not quite the same but sounds similar! I would have loved to call my DS Rhys but it sounds silly with our surname. We have very similar tastes in names lol! We picked Dylan in the end for our little man but other boys names we have liked when choosing for our DC are Connor, Riley, Brendan, Theo, Brandon, Tyler, Dante, Damien.

Typically we had already chosen a boys name for DC4 (Connor) but we found out we are on team pink so struggling for girlie names this time lol

My favourite name would be Bruce.

Logan is better than Brandon or Rhys.

Damien and Damon are awful imo.

Brandon sounds so 90210
Unless you're american, don't do it!!

I like Rex, and Spike
(not sure I can really criticise Brandon when those are my favs! grin)

My DS is called Brandon. I also love Theodore and William but DP vetoed William.

I like Toby. Dh loved Cassius. Ds is called something else which I now love.

duchessandscruffy Thu 26-Sep-13 21:47:47

It's funny the connotations that Brandon conjures for me, when it is a very prominent name in Game of Thrones!

Gregory

Yama Thu 26-Sep-13 21:51:15

nopanicandverylittleanxiety Thu 26-Sep-13 23:53:36

17leftfeet Thu 26-Sep-13 23:55:59

I love Daniel

It was my boys name but then I had 2 girls

hmm

flyingwidow Thu 26-Sep-13 23:57:51

Rowen

NameyMcChanger Thu 26-Sep-13 23:59:15

Christopher and Fraser.

EldritchCleavage Fri 27-Sep-13 00:04:55

Would you consider Dorian?
Baron
Bron
Gawain
Griff

FatPenguin Fri 27-Sep-13 00:08:02

We are trying to decide between Thomas and Joseph.

MummyBeerest Fri 27-Sep-13 00:22:46

What about Gavin? Isn't that Welsh and kind of close to Logan?

Fwiw, my favourite name for a boy is Patrick.

You all havr suggested great names, the annoying thing is my family is so big that we already have a Christopher (DP)
Ryan and Daniel and Nathan are my cousins
Michael is my uncle's name

Sadie I love your name choices, Tyler and Riley are also ones I liked but got rejected by OH instantly! And Damon is one that I like as much as Damien.

Duchess I love Game of Thrones!

I liked Gavin until Gavin and Stacey!

Sadie fwiw I heard a mother call her little girl, her name was Ariela it sounded really nice and she was a beautiful little thing!

QuarksInAPearTickle Fri 27-Sep-13 07:22:49

I love Thomas but can never use it as it doesn't go with our last name.

TallulahBetty Fri 27-Sep-13 07:26:41

I really like Logan sorry OP

I loved Ellis when pregnant but DH said no angry

MoominsYonisAreScary Fri 27-Sep-13 07:27:38

Ive always liked Calab but dp doesnt so we have 5 ds but no Calab.

Very nearly got my way as it took so long to name ds5 but I coulsnt do it in the end as dp dislikes it so much

MikeLitoris Fri 27-Sep-13 07:30:02

I love Elias but no more dc for us so will never use it.

Also loved Dexter but sounded terrible with surname.

EldritchCleavage Fri 27-Sep-13 10:58:11

Do you like the surnames as first names trend? My US relatives go to school with a Parker and a Davis. Also thought of:
Ezra
Ivan/Ivo
Jude
Connor
Travis
Jackson
Lewis
Hywel
Clarke
Rowley
Sheridan.
On another thread I've just mentioned finding the (boy's) name Thayne, which I've never heard before but quite like.

TinyTear Fri 27-Sep-13 12:40:16

Arthur

nancerama Fri 27-Sep-13 12:47:35

I love Barnaby. DH doesn't.

He seized the opportunity to bestow DS with his preferred name after a 30 hour induction and EMCS. I like DS's name, but there are hundreds of them in our area. I wanted something unusual for him.

tammytoby Fri 27-Sep-13 12:51:29

If you like Brandon and Damian and your dh likes Logan how about these similar names (well, in that they are 2 syllables and end in n):
Adrian
Rowan
Reuben
Quentin
Cassian
Brendan

If my oh could have his way our son would have any marvel characters name! Hence he likes Logan (Wolverine).
I like Travis, good call EldritchCleavage

EldritchCleavage Fri 27-Sep-13 14:46:25

Oh good!
Marvel, eh? Get him to come up with a list. You never know, you might find something you really like.

Clargo55 Fri 27-Sep-13 14:50:50

Elias

FuckyNell Fri 27-Sep-13 14:56:48

William or Noah

I also quite like Fraser and Christopher. Not chris though

miffybun73 Sat 28-Sep-13 16:21:08

Daniel (Dan)
Joseph (Joe)

Please tell me your views on these:
Luca / lucas
Tobias /Toby
Lucien
Tristian
Xander
Damian / Damon
Elijah
Rhys
Logan
Brandon

All to go with middle name Matthew.

Sadie204 Sat 28-Sep-13 16:41:07

Lol mumof2 I've actually suggested Aurora, Arietty and Ariella to DH but he has vetoed them all! Really wish I hadn't used up Alyssa as DD1's middle name. We've got a shortlist now at least though as of last night hmm

DizzyPurple Sat 28-Sep-13 16:42:26

Elliott

Sadie204 Sat 28-Sep-13 16:51:15

Ooops forgot to post the rest lol!

I like Lucas but not Luca so much.
Love Tobias but we couldn't use it as it's OH cousin
Not keen on Lucien/Tristan/Elijah
Actually really like Xander, bit more unusual
Love the rest.

Depends on your surname though. We can't use Rhys as our surname is only one syllable and sounds silly together. Think they all sound fine with Matthew as middle name but think the ones that sounds best are Logan/Brandon/Rhys/Xander.

Thank you Sadie, surname is Gill so an easy one to go with. I love the name Alba for a girl if your still looking for names? Love Alyssa!

Suzieismyname Sat 28-Sep-13 21:05:30

Jamie, Hector, Thierry

ZenNudist Sat 28-Sep-13 22:41:37

Damian is nice. I think the omen ref is so old as to be irrelevant.

Littlecherublegs Sat 28-Sep-13 22:48:39

Current favourites are:
Nathan
Leon
Joseph
Aidan / Hayden
Christian
Anthony
Lewis
Shaun
Daniel
Simon
Joel
Zachary
Marcus
Jared
Caleb
Jacob
Ciaran
Justin
Harrison
Isaac

Littlecherublegs Sat 28-Sep-13 22:53:07

Oh and should have said I like Luca / Lucas (& Luke), Tobias and Elijah from your list.

Foosyerdoos Sat 28-Sep-13 22:57:05

Fergus
Kier
Innes
Lachlan

I like Jared, but am a massive fan of 30 seconds to mars and OH with think I want name bacause if Jared Leto!

laura0007 Sun 29-Sep-13 16:29:57

My DS due in February will be Leo Elliot. These are the ONLY boys names I liked! I'm sure I liked more before I became pregnant but hormones do weird things to your body!
