Finding boys names impossible!

Please can you suggest some boys names for me!

my favourite by far is Amos but as our surname ends with a S it doesn't really work sad

I also Like but wouldn't use:

Walter - Someone would end up shortening it to Wally!
Nelson - Same as above but with Nelly.
Rowan - Don't like the fact that it's unisex
Jasper - looking at the stats in darkgreener it's clearly going to enter the top 100 soon.
Seth - Already too popular

If it helps my favourite girls names are Claudia, Saffron, Henrietta and Clementine.

How about Ezra? That has a similar feel to Amos and Seth...

Ezra is a bit too feminine sounding for me, I do seem to like bibilical type names though!

Caspar/Casper?

Not sure how popular it is..

Joel
Gideon
Ilan
Ariel
Jed
Tobias

Although unless your surname is Moss grin (or possibly Ross) I don't think the -s ending would sound bad.
Amos Lewis or Amos Jones both sound fine, for example... however I think a name starting with S- may not flow too well!

Amos is nice.2 of my boys have names ending in s and so does my surname,go for it if it is your favourite!

Walter could be Walt, not Wally?

What about Atom (hungarian name), I love that.

I'd also think that Walter would be shortened to Walt, if at all. Also, Wally would be alot better than Willy (William/Will)!

LandofTute Tue 26-Mar-13 11:03:11

I don't think Seth is very popular is it? I've never met any and i've met a lot of children!

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 26-Mar-13 11:03:40

I was going to suggest Johan also.
Emmett is lovely

Wishfulmakeupping Tue 26-Mar-13 11:04:22

There seem to be a lot of Seth's suddenly in east mids

bigbluebump Tue 26-Mar-13 11:06:10

Seth sounds so lispy, sorry I don't like it at all.

I think Amos could go ok with some s surnames. Amos Stone for example works ok

What about:
Jared
Conrad
Otto
Rohan- is boys spelling compared to Rowan which is unisex
Lionel
Elijah
Benji
Ivo

Rohan can be pronounced Ro-harn. It is Asian. I dont like R names as my DS says W instead of R so Rohan would've been bad for him (was shortlisted)

forevergreek Wed 27-Mar-13 13:15:39

Oh really, the 2 Rohans I know are from India and pronounce it 'row-an' still.
