William is a great name and such a solid choice! But…..it is just about the opposite of “unused.” It’s been in the top 20 for the last 100 years and is the fifth most popular name given to boys in the US right now. I know a few Williams, a few Wills, a Bill, a Willy, and two Billys….
What about Garrett instead of Gavin? James? My son’s name is Miles and we love it!

TTC here, but names are always on my mind. I am hoping we have a girld, but a lot of the girls names I like… DH does not. But, we have agreed on a couple boy names – which I actually prefer over most of the girl names.
We both have unisex names, so I thought it’d be nice to give our kids them too… but nothing too off. For a boy, I love Wyatt.
My maiden name is Jackson, and I would have loved to use that, but we have a nephew with that name. Jack is fun, but too close.

you and I seem very much on the same page both with names and liking girls names more 🙂 thanks for your suggestions!
not rude at all, I appreciate all input! That’s why I came here 🙂 I know…. Gross makes it a tough sell for a lot of names…

Ok so I’m bored at work so I google searched it and the ones that seem to sound the best start with a D or a T
something about the hard D and T sound works well with Gross! Makes it sound strong.

@unicornphish: one of my friends in high school was named Milo and he was the coolest, thanks 🙂
One of those is actually my husbands name, so obviously I love it but we don’t want a junior! But I like both, thanks 🙂
The more I hear Jackson the more I like it!!!
I like those, thank you! And we do need a strong name!!

My son’s name is Quinn Oliver– i am expecting another boy in March- so kind of wishing we had a different middle name for Quinn since I like Oliver so much 🙂 I think the next boy will be Zane– I also like Simon.

I like the classic names for boys…Michael, Nicholas, Anthony.

My Fiance and I are both Irish so we are fans of Irish names. My favourite boys names are Cillian (Kill-ee-un) and Cian (Key-in). They are reasonably familiar names in Ireland but I can imagine they would be mispronounced a lot in America.

I’m loving all of these names! I agree that you should go with something more traditional so the kid is less likely to be teased. It’s rough out there with a last name like that. My son is Dominic and it’s been bully proof so far. Not that they won’t find other reasons to tease anyways.. but still. He likes his name and he’s proud of it. It’s strong and uncommon but not hipster level uncommon. I’ve seen a lot of really good ideas on here! I’ve always thought it’s best to stay more uncommon so they aren’t one of five Michaels in their class, but at the same time something classy enough to not be teased over. It’s a fine line to walk down!

Love all the names you suggested! I’d look at behind the name if you ever decide on Cohen though. Can be controversial.

My brother’s name is Nathan, Nate for short, and I’ve always really liked that name. Not terribly common but not weird, which is what I look for in a name.
