I am struggling to find a boys name that is the "one". I like unique names but also names that will grow with them, quite a difficult combo. I like the sound of Brakkai and Indio but would like to test them out before I actually name the baby. Any comments welcome.

Brakkai is awful. Where is it from? Indio makes me think 'Indigo' and remind some of those 'Indigo Children' loons.

MrsMattie Thu 02-Jul-09 21:13:36

reminds me

Are you a climber?

You have yo think of the sort of people they will grow into. They sound a bit hippyish but not in a cool way iyswim.

gossipmonger all those names are already taken in my four yr old sons year at school really after something quite unique. my husband likes Olo? hf128219 no im not a climber but i can see where you're coming from. oh dear not the response i was hoping for.

Frasersmum123 Thu 02-Jul-09 21:28:33

Im sorry but they are awful and both sound made up - as does Olo.

ThePhantomPlopper Thu 02-Jul-09 21:29:32

Sorry but they are awful.

Pingpong Thu 02-Jul-09 21:31:55

when you say unique do you mean entirely made up?
I'm not being rude just curious?
FWIW I don't like either any of your two three suggestions so far

harlok Thu 02-Jul-09 21:40:29

they don't have to be entirely made up however if it sounds nice then i don't mind although all names have to originate from somewhere.
i just prefer to have a name that is unique at least to the area i live in at least.
any suggestions?

i originally liked the name bracken however i discovered that there was another boy in my childs school with the same name so i thought brakkai would be an unusual alternative. maybe not!

harlok Thu 02-Jul-09 21:41:35

sorry typo error at least just the once

SoupDragon Thu 02-Jul-09 21:42:19

Kevin or Brian.

Pingpong Thu 02-Jul-09 21:42:41

My neighbours had a golden lab called Bracken grin she was lovely!

sleepyeyes Thu 02-Jul-09 21:46:38

How about Sholto?
Its a real name and fairly rare.

harlok Thu 02-Jul-09 21:48:32

no soupdragon i reside here on earth threfor kevin and brian are of no use to me. I mean really you must have pulled all the stops out for those!(hmm)

EyeballsandherSunburntNorks Thu 02-Jul-09 21:53:11

hmm I'd take Kevin or Brian over anything you've come up with so far. There's unique and then there's downright silly.

harlok Thu 02-Jul-09 21:58:06
