Are you naming a motivational speaker from California?

Fixatif Fri 03-Feb-17 20:35:42

Bryce, at a push. Although I once taught a horrible Year 10 boy called Bryce.

Fixatif Fri 03-Feb-17 20:36:23

I was going to say 'Neither' but I thought I'd try to be a bit more constructive.

They really are both grim names, OP. Anything else on your shortlist?

Not my style of name... sorry!

Raines100 Fri 03-Feb-17 20:37:22

Chase! Chase and Reid are my 'if I were American' baby boy names. But I'm in the UK, and I don't think they would work here.

Other names we had on our list are Blake and Chad?

Raines100, we are American but live in London, but plan on sending him to the American school in London where there is a load of different cultures

Chase, I rather like it smile second choice, Blake.
But choose what you love, not what a group of strangers online choose!

Dustpan Fri 03-Feb-17 20:43:44

Chase is fine for an American family! But I like Blake best

EssentialHummus Fri 03-Feb-17 20:45:22

I like Blake, with Chase a close second.

pizzaparty Fri 03-Feb-17 20:46:53

I like chase, then Blake. Could Blair work? Or Damon?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 03-Feb-17 20:47:54

I think your opening "cheers" put us off the scent OP 😀. Do Americans say that??

Ilovecaindingle Fri 03-Feb-17 20:48:00

I liked Chase. .
Paw patrol put me right off!!

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 03-Feb-17 20:48:01

OP, do you like Cole ?

daisypond Fri 03-Feb-17 20:49:26

Yep, I'm not keen on them at all. They sound really American and slightly odd to me - it's the "surname used as a first name" thing - but if that doesn't matter to you, go with what you like best. I think Blake is perhaps the best of your options, though I do think of Blake Carrington out of Dynasty. Chad just makes me think of the "hanging chads" to-do in the election.

There was a very sweet character named Chase in One Tree Hill, so it makes me think of him.

Helspopje Fri 03-Feb-17 20:49:59

Sound like american names that dont really work elsewhere unless you are the pioneer woman on food network- they have a Ladd Bryce and a Todd, i think

Plumbobbies Fri 03-Feb-17 20:53:08

Through have been here 22 years shock DH less time, but use lots of British words - my favourite being 'bloody' grin

Yes! I like both Cole and Reid

CactusFred Fri 03-Feb-17 20:57:47

Blake if you have to have one of those you suggested. Chase as second.

TBH these are all names I've read in American romance novels where all the blokes are buff and manly cowboy types.

All are better than Kevin which for some reason Americans are obsessed with?!

Plumbobbies Fri 03-Feb-17 20:59:24

I actually really like Kevin and Gavin too.
