@sept22insf:  I went to school with a guy called Roland, he was nice. I personally don’t like the name Alton, but love the name Elliott! It makes me think of Elliott Stabler from SVU.

Elliott makes me think of Law and Order SVU, and a jerky kid that played trumpet in HS band with me. Cocky, somewhat intelligent… I guess neither a positive or negative feeling.

Roland – Stephen King, Eves of the Dragon I’m not sure if the actual charater was named that, but I still think of that book. Not a great association… a lazy, weak king character. 

Alton – I have no associations with this name, but I like it.

Elliott: cute/naughty little boy

Roland: elderly gentleman, possibly a professor

Alton: I just think of the London council estate (social housing project) with this one–it’s called Alton Towers.

Elliott – light brown hair; freckles; basically the kid from E.T.

Roland – messy, brown hair; chubby; pink cheeks; squinty eyes; over-alls; shy

Alton – kinda goofy as a kid, but grows up to be handsome; like the guy you thought was a dork, til you run into him 10 years after graduation and suddenly wish you’d given him a chance.

Love Elliott , Alton sounds very sophisticated! Roland , (sorry if anyone has chosen this name) makes me think of the chubby, bratty boy from willy wonka .

Alton makes me think of the food network chef, and he is awesome so I like that one. Roland makes me think Rolaid (like the stomach med) and if I can think of a bad nickname like that so will evil kids. Elliott is a cute one too. Possible nick names (becausw lets be honest unless you name is Kay or Jay or something else with one syllable peole will inevitably make one) are like Al,  Eli,   and those aren’t bad.

Elliot – annoying little kid. Roland – old ‘redneck’ man. Alton – cute, young guy on MTV shows – BUT, he is a bit cocky. Of the 3, I like Alton the best as a name.

@sept22insf:  So, you’re probably already aware of this site, but I thought I’d share it with you just in case: http://www.babynamewizard.com/baby-name/advanced-name-finder


You can search for names you like and it will show you whether people have voted them as intelligent, young, creative etc. It’s a good way to find out how others perceive them. I’m not TTC for a long while yet, but I think it’s fun to play with 🙂

It seems others agree on Elliott 🙂 http://www.babynamewizard.com/baby-name/boy/elliott
