I'm currently expecting and struggling to come up with boys names both me and me and DH like! We want something strong and masculline. We both like Truman but wonder if people won't like it! Really value your opinions and any other boys name suggestions!

What about a slightly less ordinary, but still recognisably first-name, e.g. Sebastian?

flowerygirl Sun 30-Sep-12 09:55:20

I think surname type names sound strong and masculine! I don't know why it bothers you so much...

I think Sebastian sounds a bit drippy! Sorry I'm a tough crowd!

How about Rex? DH said it's a dog's name but I like it!

P.S I'm not American!

Rex is cool. I'm all for pets names grin

I agree Sebastian is drippy. I also love Rex. Rex Truman Jeffrey sounds great as does Rex Hunter Jeffrey.

They both sound great! My husband says no to Rex though sad

I really like Scott but do you think it's boring?

Scott Geoffrey is nice. I also like Conrad Geoffrey.

I think Scott would work fine with Jeffrey, and is relatively unusual now.

Personally I don't think surnames sounds particularly masculine, after all girls/women have then too.

Scott is nice. or how about


amck5700 Mon 01-Oct-12 16:15:24

or Gregor/Greg

I'd go back to Truman or Hunter if I were you. Scott is boring and sounds like an'80's Kevin-type name.

I like Conrad, but I'm not keen on names that sound like surnames really.

I really like Austin ^^ -- Austin Jeffrey has a nice ring to it.

I agree with you about Sebastian and I don't like Rex. I like Conrad. Prefer Truman by a long shot over Hunter.

Thanks for all the suggestions. How about Holden?

Love Ewan but unfortunately there's already one in the family and I have a rule, no names already in the family!

SuperB0F Tue 02-Oct-12 18:37:32

Holden is nice, yes. Have you read Catcher In The Rye?

HmmThinkingAboutIt Tue 02-Oct-12 18:52:21

First things that Truman puts in my head; The man who dropped the atomic bomb on Japan. Or Jim Carey.

Neither are associations I'd been keen on.

Holden is nice.

flowerygirl Wed 03-Oct-12 16:16:31

Haha yes, I just finished reading Catcher in the Rye!

Atomic bomb?! Good grief that is not a positive connotation!

Still not found the right name, watching programme credits very closely for ideas!

Hal Jeffrey?
