We are having a baby boy (our first child) due in March. We cannot find a single boy name that we LOVE! The closest we have come to is Rhys…I really like it but not sure if I love it. Our last name is Kelly, so im trying to find something on the shorter side that does rhyme…Any suggestions would be really appreciated! otherwise itl just be baby boy forever 😉

@MeeShell: I like the way it flows 🙂 Just in case you’re not already aware of it, Nymbler is a great site. You type in names you like and it suggests others.

From a site called NameBerry!
I really Emmet and Jasper (not listed above). I think those would both go well with Kelly as a last name!

@MeeShell: I work with a guy named Kelly Ries (same pronunciation as Rhys) how funny!
I really like Jack and Colin… those were our runner up boys names. Do you have any family names that you would like to use? We are going with my family name Clark.

Rhys is Welsh, so how about other Welsh names like Dylan, Owen, Bryn, Conor etc.

@outofideas: Ooh this website is great. Im wandering if its meant to be that it just keeps giving me different spellings of Rhys everytime haha!
@Sasha2011: Definately nothing wrong with Rhys but it is the only boy name I have had the whole pregnancy and feel a bit anxious about committing too it. It does go well with Kelly though. Im pretty confident we will go with it but im worried about missing out on something else :S

@MeeShell: Haha I read that and I was like “ok she wants her kid name to rhyme… interesting!” Rhys is great, I know several little boys and girls with the same! My maternal grandmothers name is kelly, and I have a cousin named Seamous Kelly, and he is a BEAUTIFUL little boy!

I can’t even think of names that rhyme with Kelly! Rhys sounds nice, but I think it would work better as a middle name. For some reason I think a two or three syllable name would pair better with your last name.

@somethingaquamarine: Haha the I want it to rhyme sentence was a typo..it was supposed to say I didnt want anything that rhymed with Kelly haha
