stumblymonkey Tue 13-Dec-16 18:52:19

More seriously...just my opinions...

Liam - no as reminds me of the Gallagher
George - bit overdone due to Royal babe
James - I like this (biased as DPs name)
Leon - not my cup of tea
Travis - not my cup of tea either
Matthew - I love
Colin - the world's not ready for Colin to make a comeback as a name yet
Dean - makes me think of Dean Gaffney, not a good association
Layton - quite like this
Corey - quite like this
Oliver - meh
Sam - meh
Josh - quite like this
Trent - not for me, sounds like an American brat
Hogan - like Hulk Hogan? Not for me
Fox - I luffs foxes
Tom - meh
Tanner - another American brat
Brad - ditto
Rhys - I like this
Aaron - American brat effect
Scott - don't like, sounds a bit 80s child
Ryan - meh
Adam - quite like this
Kaine - not for me
Harris - I love this one
Harrison - I love the name Harrison
Redmand - least favourite
Brodie - meh

Hope I don't offend, just my personal opinions which mean nothing!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 13-Dec-16 18:53:24

Love Matthew and Adam

TheWildRumpyPumpus Tue 13-Dec-16 18:54:22

James or Oliver for me. There are others which are OK but some which are not my taste at all!

SassyPants19 Tue 13-Dec-16 18:58:00

Loving Fox and Tanner!

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 13-Dec-16 18:59:11

I'd keep.
James.
Tom
Aaron
Adam
Liam.
Corey and Layton are not normally my style of names, but. There is something appealing about them .
Fox is quite nice, but a bit risky for a teenage boy. Do you not think.
Hes not going to stay a cute little baby forever

PrincessOnTheInternet Tue 13-Dec-16 19:00:36

Layton is the surname of a Nintendo video game character Professor Layton if that puts you off?
Favourite name is James !

NapQueen Tue 13-Dec-16 19:03:56

Top 3
Travis (because I have one, Travis Leo, which I much prefer to leon)
Scott (also on our list!)
Tom (DHS name)

We also loved Fox and we're going to use it as Travis' middle name but DD made a look comment about ds so we chose Leo.

Beebeeeight Tue 13-Dec-16 19:05:26

AnnetteKertan Tue 13-Dec-16 19:18:23

Ryan or Tom

Pluto30 Tue 13-Dec-16 20:17:56

Like:
- George
- James
- Matthew
- Oliver
- Sam (prefer it as a nickname for Samuel, but I love it on its own too)
- Josh (also prefer as a nickname for Joshua)
- Tom (also prefer as a nickname for Thomas)
- Scott
- Harris
- Harrison

Neutral:
- Liam
- Leon
- Adam

Dislike:
- Travis (outdated)
- Colin (outdated)
- Dean (short, harsh sounding)
- Layton (Hewitt)
- Corey (outdated)
- Trent (outdated)
- Hogan (Hulk or Paul?)
- Fox
- Tanner (very American sounding)
- Brad (outdated)
- Rhys (just don't like it)
- Aaron (outdated)
- Ryan (outdated)
- Kaine (every Cain I've known has been the definition of feral)
- Redmand (don't like, prefer Edmund)
- Brodie (outdated)

I think Fox works well as a middle name though. Middle names can be unconventional.

Sam(uel)

MinesAGin Tue 13-Dec-16 20:23:40

You seem confused between classic names, names that are very popular and names that belong in Mills & Boon books.

Classic:

George
James
Matthew
Oliver
Sam
Tom
Adam

Mills & Boon

Travis
Layton
Trent
Hogan
Fox
Tanner
Brad
Kaine
Harris
Harrison
Redmand
Brodie

And then you have Colin! I didn't think anyone had been called Colin for decades!
