unusual baby boy names????

(45 Posts)
Bondy83 Tue 18-Nov-14 08:20:17

Really stuck for a boys name. I want something unusual (but not a made up name if that makes any sense). Any suggestions? X

My list (which I drew up because I liked rarer names was)

Rex
Travis
Lawrence
Sid
Huw
Leo (which I now realise is quite popular!)

Ralph, Rex, Seth, Silas, Julius, Magnus

I like Rex.
Wilf

Thaddeus
Florian
Stanley
Otis
Zephyr
Timon
Cyrus

Think - Lawrence, Hugh ( rather than huw), and Leo are very commonly used names here

Cassius. I bloody love this name but DH has vetoed it, so you have it with my blessing haha.

I broke down yesterday and the aa mans name was Vince and I thought oh you don't get many Vince's these days

My boy list is wyatt, Cole, jakob (DH is Jake) elijah or beau

My dp wants marius for if baby is a boy he wanted it last time bit she was a girl my list is brennan or shay

I also love Rex. Gideon? Gilbert. I really wanted Caspian, but DH said no.

BotBotticelli Tue 18-Nov-14 16:29:12

Keir? I have one so I am biased.

daholster Tue 18-Nov-14 17:09:56

I second Beau! Also love Gabriel. Dh vetoed both! hmm

TobyLerone Tue 18-Nov-14 17:14:05

I loved Beau, but it could be an error if he goes through an 'unfortunate'-looking period in his teens.

If DD2 had been a boy, she probably would have been Torin.

I like calab, dp didn't. 5 boys and no calab confused

I nearly did have calab for ds5 as he was nameless for a few weeks and dp got to the point that he would have agreed to anything, couldn't do it though as I know how much he disliked it

DixieNormas Tue 18-Nov-14 17:18:48

I also like Cole and Cory

DixieNormas Tue 18-Nov-14 17:19:24

Oh I also quite like Gage

DixieNormas Tue 18-Nov-14 17:19:46

And Chase

We had the following names on our list for DS
Seth
Warwick
Gideon
Eli

More normal names we had were Reece and Zak

Findingthisdifficult1234 Tue 18-Nov-14 19:35:19

Brodie?

monkhelz82 Tue 18-Nov-14 19:52:01

My DH and I both like Dalton for a boy. Not heard anybody we know using it but it's not so obscure either.

baby5ontheway Wed 19-Nov-14 10:42:03

I like
Rex
Cyrus
Cody
I'm also looking for an unusual boys name. I think names beginning with Z are unusual, so
Zion
Zidane
Zeus
Zumer

See why I need help too smile

ClementineIvy Wed 19-Nov-14 10:54:28

My baby making days are over. But if ever we had a boy, he'd be called Rafferty. I also really like Atticus, Barnaby and Arlo.

Syd35 Wed 19-Nov-14 11:01:25

I like Tristan or Jared but DH likes neither!

MrsCorr Wed 19-Nov-14 14:26:40

Our top boy name is Reuben smile I love it & think it's unusual but not weird. We've been saying his name quite a lot over the last few weeks so think it's a keeper.
