This past year I was a substitute teacher for a few months, and I saw some interesting names! I think the most unique boy’s name I ran across was Kanyon (his was spelled with a K, but you could do it with a C as well)…and I remember thinking of how much I liked it…its not one you usually hear, but it doesn’t sound bizarre…I think it has a nice ring to it!

I really love old-fashioned boys names. I used to babysit a little boy named Theodore (number 295 for 2008, according to SSA), which would be really cute nicknamed to either Teddy or Theo. I have a special affinity for the name Milton (923) as well. Leonard is all the way down at 621 and Leo would be a cute nickname for that too. Some people don’t like nicknames as much though (my husband hates them, even though he’s routinely gone by his initials since he was born).
I got my numbers from http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/
You can show the most popular 20, 50, 100, 500, or 1000 for 2008.
But boys names can be hard! I was happy to find out we were having a girl because we’d already settled on a name for her (Talitha) and were/are still floundering for boys’ names. Good luck!

Maybe it sounds too trendy, but I do kind of like nature names like Sky. I actually might want to use the Hindi translation, Akash, but FI’s unsure as I had an ex named Sky. It’s not nothing to do with him, though, I just like the name. Another name I kind of like is Russell. I knew a Graham in H/S…I like the name anyway.
Or you could take my niece’s suggestion for my soon to arrive nephew, "Baby Brother" 🙂

Congratulations on the baby!
I like Nathaniel for a boy. The PP about Kanyon reminded me I once went to school with a boy named Cannon. I had a huge crush on him for a while. I also like Ethan.

I’ve always liked Ignacio for a boy – but that’s too Spanish 🙂

I like the name Shin. It’s Korean for faith, belief, and trust. I think all of these things were a big part of his arrival in this world.

What about Wyatt? You could always cally him Wy (Y, if you’re looking for another letter) for short.

I like Patrick, James, Daniel, Emmett, Gavin (obvious Irish connections but familiar and strong male names)
When I think of names of future children (hopefully!) I like to draw connections with family names, religious or cultural meanings or personal significance (names connected to meaningful places/events etc…)
What a wonderful quandary to be in! Good luck finding the perfect name for your bundle of joy!

I love Bae (Korean, meaning inspiration), Nori (Japanese, meaning good son), Jae (Korean, meaning respect) & Ryuu (Japanese, meaning dragon).
I’m with the others who like to know the meanings behind names – my sons are Sean (Irish, meaning gift from God) and Drew (Welsh, meaning wise).
