I don’t have children, but a lot of my friends do.  Here is a sample of what the boys ended up with:  Emerson, Landon, Eyaston, Finn, Gabriel, Jaxon (really not a fan of that name….sorry), Henry, Nathaniel, Tennen, Harrison, and Jake.

How do you pronounce “Thile”? lol 

 

Beckett is cool. (Beck is a family name in DH’s family)

What about Callan? (Cal)

 

Are nicknames important to you?

We absolutely want names that go in French as well as in English.

Jeremy (although it doesn’t go with our last name, which is crushing me cause it’s my fave!!)

Nathan
Gabriel

Lately we’ve loved Antoine, but it’s not good in English so we’ll probably have to toss it.. Plus, when shortened, it’s Tony and we’re not fans..

So yeah, we don’t plan on having more than 2 kids, so if they’re two boys, it will be Nathan adn Gabriel.

I like Jacob as well, but it’s waaayyy too popular right now, and growing up myself with a too popular name, I will not do this to my children.

I tend to like very old-fashioned, traditional names. For boys I like Henry, Charles, James, Matthew, Jonah, Simon, William and Samuel.

@dana – me too, on the traditional names. I have always said Jack would be a great boy’s name, and it’s part of my brother’s name too, but now so many people are named Jack (family friend, friend’s new baby, my IL’s DOG!) that I have to let it go. Maybe YOU can use Jack!

I really like Charlie.

Just a thought—about half of baby boys’ names given today end with -n (especially -on, -en, -an). So even though all the names you listed are very off the beaten path in terms of the actual letters used, in terms of sound nearly all of them (5 of the 7) end with a very common sound for boys today. And just in case you didn’t know, Chanson is the French word for “song” and I think that gives it a feminine connotation.

Here’s a neat article on naming baby boys: http://www.babynamewizard.com/archives/2007/7/where-all-boys-end-up-nowadays

Chanson as in song?  Would you pronounce it the french way?  I think it’s pretty though my husband has a french name and people don’t have an easy time with it.

Well in English Chanson can sound cool.. But if he’s ever to travel in French places or even eventually live in a French environment, I don’t know if it’s such a good idea..

@troubled: I get what you’re saying. We live in a region where we use French and English every.single.day, and people who have names that don’t go well in both languages have a hard time – they usually come up with easy nicknames and use it professionally as their regular name to avoid having to spell and explain all the time..
