Jaiden!

 

I honestly don’t know. Names are so personal you know? I know my FMIL had a hard time picking out name for my FI because she worked for corrections. So every boy name she picked out someone would be like “Like after the guy who eats faces?” hahaha

Good Luck, I always find those things always come to you.

Have you checked out the boards on nameberry?  People often post questions like yours and get really good suggestions!  I like both Aiden and Jakob (I think I would spell it Jacob, though), but I think both sound similar to your daughter’s name.  They all have the same “a” sound.  Perhaps you would like the name Alden?  It is similar to Aiden but is far less common and does not rhyme with your daughter’s name.  I also thought of Gavin, since it is an Irish name (like Aiden).

Other names you might like:

Landon

Jonah

Logan

Noah

Eli

Evan

I totally think everyone should stay away from -en names.  Jaden, Braden, Caden, Aiden are like the most popular names EVER right now, and you don’t want your kid going to kindergarten with 20 other -en boys.  (But that’s just personal opinion!)

I like names that are more translatable internationally, so we were thinking about Luca or Matteo (but I have Italian heritage).  We also had Teague, Kenzo and Zev on our list.  We didn’t want something that was in the top 100, but we didn’t want something so weird that people couldn’t handle it.

Yeah, the Aiden, Jack, Jake trio is UBER-popular right now (I know because those were all names we liked!). If you have several days to waste online, check this out:

LOVE this site, and great for looking at popularity AND which way names are trending. It’s also fun to randomly click on some of the older ones, look at your own name, etc., etc. Congratulations on your little one!!!

I just have to say, I’m American and I hate the name Hank.  It sounds like a person needs to blow their nose.  I’m not a huge fan of Aiden but I love Jakob.  I feel like Aiden, Jonah, Landon, Eli, and Noah (girl names: chloe, ashleigh, annberly, a names+weird endings) are wayyy popular and overused but if you looove that name go for it!  I’m a fan of Matthew, Andrew, Charlie.

I also like unique names, but I struggle with the balance of being different, and at the same time making sure that my kid isn’t going to be teased for the rest of his/her life! For boys, I have always liked the following names, in no particular order: Atticus, Jamison, Fynn, Silas, and Rowan.

I have always wanted to name my oldest son Atticus, because it means fatherly

I have a HUGE crush on Liam Neeson and was drooling over him the whole time I was watching the ATeam…and then it hit me, Liam is a cool name, but so is Neeson.  I like both.
