Strong names? For boys?

To go with an odd surname? (Storm).

We liked Ash/er. It doesn't really go.
We quite like Elliott, Rex (too doglike for me, though), Xander, Caleb, Conrad and Kai (Kai Rooney?). I'm aware that not all actually fit our description! Any ideas?

I think your last name is fab by the way!

Richard Storm (underused but really nice I think)

bridgetsmum Sat 30-Nov-13 12:52:32

Dick Storm?!?! confused

Iwaswatchingthat Sat 30-Nov-13 12:54:54

Ha ha - I have known many Richards and not one of them gets that nickname!!! Except dick Turpin and dick Whittington!!! They all get the full name tbh.

Thanks everyone thanks

Can't use Richard as that is my ex's (and my eldest DC's dad's) name! Y

Cameron Storm is lovely. I like Gabriel too, not Gabe as a nn or Riel, but Gabriel without an nn is great. Lucas is a cool name. Kyle is the name of my foster brother, so I like it but don't think I can use it. thanks

Christopher is nice. Can't use it because of DH'a uncle <sigh> but I love it, especially with the nickname Kit! Now I just need to convince the uncle to change his name so we can use it...

Benjamin and Alexander are great. I love both of them! Benjamin has loads of nn options (Benjy, Ben and Jamie are my favourites) and I like Alexander because of Xander as a nickname, and just because it's generally a great name.

smile Thanks again. So far Cameron, Gabriel, Lucas, Benjamin and Alexander have been added to the very short short list!

Conrad wrote about storms, so that works.

Magnus Storm
Lachlan Storm
Fergus Storm
Adam Storm
Leon Storm
Lewis Storm
Callum Storm
Jake storm
Dexter Storm

What an ace surname to have though! am envious!

mum2jakie Sat 30-Nov-13 18:10:39

I think Levi would sound great with Storm. A real strong name!

MortifiedAnyFuckerAdams Sat 30-Nov-13 18:12:18

Love love Rex.

Also love Elliot.

Id go for Elliot Christopher or Rex Alexander

WhatTheHellIsHappening Sat 30-Nov-13 18:19:47

Conrad and storms, I didn't make the connection! Thanks!

Don't think I like Magnus, he'd be teased (around here, at least)? Lachlan is nice, Lachlan Storm has a ring to it. Fergus isn't for us. I love Callum, Jake, Lewis, Leon and Adam. They're brilliant thanks

Levi Storm, also added to the list!

Mortified we weren't going to use a middle name, but they definitely have a ring to it, so I'm being persuaded! They flow perfectly. smile

Saul/Solomon would be great, almost like a superhero name smile

SkivingAgain Sat 30-Nov-13 21:26:35

Don't use Lucas, sounds like - look, a storm

SkivingAgain Sat 30-Nov-13 21:27:08

Only one from me - Cary.

Second Conrad, but am biased!

WhatTheHellIsHappening Sat 30-Nov-13 23:21:14

Sorry I took ages to come back thanks (Sick DD3, the only way to get her to sleep was watching a repeat of Katie Morag. If this baby was a girl, I'd be tempted with that as a name...)

So many names! miffy all those names are names of (adult) member of the family. I love them all, traditional names are very strong and serious and are perfect. Skiving yeah, Inget what you mean! It'd be even worse with Luca!

sorenna love Saul. Solomon is my DBro's name actually! I love love love Saul but DH vetoed it. Apparently his hamster was called Saul and therefore the name is taken. hmm Tbf, I vetoed a name of his for a rather stupid reason from his perspective, so I'm going to try wearing him down on it!

everlong Sebastian and Patrick are nice. Hamish is the name of our rather clumsy poodle and I don't think it would work iyswim. I don't really like Gullivwr (Gulliver's Travels) but I like the sound just not the association in my mind? Thanks! <adds names to list)

Charlotte aside from Tommy, all have been used by close family sad I love Tommy, Thomas, Tomec etc; but DH had a bullying boss called Tommy. I love it though. So a variant of it and see how the nn develops, if we choose it. On short list though!

invicta thanks! I LOVE Callum so much! Aaron and Aled too. And Benjamin! Rufus is the name of DSD's snake and as he'll probably live for another ten years, I don't think we can use it! Fitzwilliam is my boss' surname and althoigh I'm looking for a promotion, it might look a teeny bit arselicky grin Im not a fan of Howard but I'm not sure why tbh. I like Howie.

bailey love the name. DD1 would probably love us to call him Liam he's her One Direction crush but sadly that association has rather put us off! I like Alex and George smile

thanks everyone.

Oscar Storm has a nice ring to it X

ToffeeJungle Sun 01-Dec-13 18:56:05

Jared / Jed
Zac / Zachary
Brad / Bradley

Love the surname!

Whatever you do, don't go for Peter. It's Millett's own brand of clothing and footwear grin

How about John, lovely strong name.

I like Rex. I think now that Max is popular Rex slips through without sounding too doggie or too 'King'. It's just similar to Max, but different. I

impatienttobemummy Sun 01-Dec-13 19:12:27

Tristan Storm

impatienttobemummy Sun 01-Dec-13 19:13:07

I like someone else's suggestion of Benjamin Storm...

Kikibee Sun 01-Dec-13 19:13:20

Why has no one suggested Samson? confused he was the original strongman grin

everlong Sun 01-Dec-13 19:15:58

Oh yes Rex.

That's a fab name!

Rex Storm -film star or future rock star wink

BoyMeetsWorld Sun 01-Dec-13 19:18:47

What an amazing surname!!

I used to know an Aidan Storm.

Other strong combos that spring to mind=

Xander Storm
Reuben Storm
Solomon Storm
Tyson Storm
Edmund Storm

Strongecoffeeismydrug Sun 01-Dec-13 20:17:45

My little boy is called Marshall and I think it would go fab with your surnamesmile.
I'm well jell of that surname wink

Like all your suggestions except Kai. Prefer Zander to Xander, though. My ds is Axel, would go well with Storm too I think. Another recent thread suggested Julius, which I think is strong. I have a crush on the name Roy at the moment, but nobody seems to agree (including dh).

RatHammock Mon 02-Dec-13 13:25:38

Sebastian Storm is the best name ever! Bar none.

RatHammock Mon 02-Dec-13 13:26:35

Call him that then please can he marry my DD and they will be Sebastian & India Storm. grin

MrsT2007 Mon 02-Dec-13 14:02:57

Edward, with Ned as a nickname. Ned or Ed Storm sounds cool

Charotte31 Mon 02-Dec-13 14:06:02

Love ed storm!

what about Zephyr? smile

sorenna68 Mon 02-Dec-13 21:19:34


BoyMeetsWorld Tue 03-Dec-13 12:22:35

Ned Storm = amaaaaazing!

shoobidoo Tue 03-Dec-13 14:05:12

To my ears Rex Storm sounds like Wreck Storm - I don't like the s's running into each other.

Nor do I really like Seb Storm.

But I think these all sound fantastic
Cameron Storm
Benjamin Storm
Quentin Storm
Reuben Storm

CrazyThursday Tue 03-Dec-13 21:44:52

Sebastian Storm is a terrific name. Deffo think it should be something beginning with S.
