Adventuring with boys names :)
Posted 07 July 2013 - 02:09 PM
I'd love suggestions, opinions, anything I feel like my style.. I like names that I could see a bad boy in. A cool kid. Manly, though not necessarily overly macho <3 I know my kid will be the sweetest little angel ever seen, but I still like them bad boy names!
Thanks for all help!

As for this new list..
Silas Grey is definitely not my style. I know a little boy named Siler. What do you think of it?
Jude Elijah / Phineas - I really like Elijah. I used to adore it for a little boy's middle name, but since I met my aunt's boyfriend's boy, Elijah, I'm seeing it more of a first name. It's very handsome! Jude and Phineas are not my style.
Abel Gideon has a nice flow, but I just don't like it.
Abram Gunner is very different for me. Abram just makes me think Bible times, and I'm not much into a lot of the old Bible names. Bible names I like are James, Timothy, Matthew, Isaac.. I'll think of a few more later.
Isaac Gideon / Jude - Isaac is a very handsome name! I know a boy named Jacob Isaac. It's a beautiful middle name for a boy. I, personally, just wouldn't use it as a first name. Isaiah is also a cute I middle name for boys!
Reese is one I can really only see for a girl! Love Reese for girl's middle name.
Bennett is such a cute, innocent, popular-boy sounding name to me! It's very handsome! A girl at school has a baby boy named Bentley. I just think B names like those are super cute for boys.
Damon - I fell in love with this name when I met Coleman's little brother, Damon. So it's a fave! <3
Everett definitely isn't my style at all.
Levi is a cute middle name, I think. Not my style but it is cute.
What do you think of Reed? I have a little cousin named Bryson Reed. I'd never liked it till she named him this.
Hope I helped in some way! <3

Like I said before, these are my favourites.
I think Archer and Roman work wonderfully with Silas and Jude.
Archer and Abel a little less, but that's just a personal quirk of mine since both start with the same letter.
As for the singles, here's a few ideas:
Hmm.. I'll come up with a random list ASAP.

Going by Archer and Roman, word names seem to be a good fit.
Here's a few jumbled ideas:
(Though some of these won't work with either Archer or Roman)
And I have no idea which of these I haven't already suggested in the past.

Jude Elijah -- Elijah sounds more like a first name to me. As Kelsie said before, my aunt's boyfriend's son's name is Elijah Luke
Jude Phineas -- I really don't like Phineas...sorry. It reminds of Phineas and Ferb, or whatever that show is called
Abel Gideon -- I love Gideon! So cute. Abel is pretty cute too. I like them together
Abram Gunner -- Don't really like Abram...reminds me of the Bible character. Gunner is kinda cute though.
Isaac Gideon -- LOVE Gideon! SO cute. Isaac is cute too. Kinda sounds more like a middle to me though
Isaac Jude -- Jude reminds me of the Bible. I'm not really fond of Bible names, except Michael and maybe Naomi.
Reese -- How is this pronounced? If it's like the candy bar, I don't like it. If it's pronounced R-ee-s, I do like it. But maybe as a middle?
Bennett -- Hmm...dunno about this one. Maybe as a middle, with the first name Cole Bennett, Micah Bennett, Caleb Bennett.
Damon -- I kinda like this one...as a middle.(: With the first being...maybe Kyle Damon, Michael Damon.
Everett -- Kinda sounds like an old man...
Levi -- I really like this. I know a little boy named Levi and he's so cute!
I like your style, but I usually like the "different" or "unusual" names to be as middles.(:

Silas Grey - love Silas, especially with the nickname 'Si'
Abel Gideon - Abel is a GP of mine, very cute. Gideon is ok, nms due to knowing one
Isaac Jude - Isaac is pretty amazing. It's like a timeless classic but doesn't feel overused.
I also tend towards names that have a bit of a bad-boy image in them or the nn I like (in my mind at least, lol)
But yeah, go Silas
Posted 07 July 2013 - 06:52 PM
Silas Grey - I like Grey, but Silas isn't my style.
Jude Elijah - Probably my favorite of this list. Although I prefer Jude on a girl I still adore it on a boy. And I love Elijah.
Jude Phineas - Again with Jude, but Phineas nms.
Damon - I'm pretty sure this is on my list
Everett - I'm really starting to like this one. It's pretty new to me.
Yeah, I'm personally into the more traditional boys names, with a few trendy ones.
But those are just my favorites.

All of them are very handsome bad boyish!!! You can't go wrong either way, sweetie! GL!! Can't wait to hear which one you decide!!

Archer Cole is still my babes name, but I do enjoy looking at potential sibling names and all Plus I really don't have a list other than what I had just made above <3 Unfortunately, Mike dislikes most of them (Jude, Silas, and Phineas were absolute no's. Abel is eh, but no real life use). I didn't get opinions on EVERYTHING, but those four I asked and they all got no's <3
Reed is nice, though I don't know if I'd really use it. Makes me think of reading lol <3
Holy moley suggestions, Yazziekins! wow! I like all these!
Griffith / Griffin (both actually in NH's top 100! And the name of aunties kitty )
Really, word names kinda do suit me or not even necessarily word names but these all fit in with that style! Quite a few I'm liking... a lot! <3 Hmm! I'll play around with them and see where I get!!
Thanks for all the input on my names, you lovely girlies!! Really, I appreciate it! <3 I'm going to think through all the input for a little while, probably run some by Mike... y'know All the fun stuff! Thank you!!

Jude Elijah - Also handsome.
Jude Phineas - I like this best out of the Jude combos. It's very handsome and cute.
Abel Gideon - Not a fan of either name but I like the flow.
Abram Gunner - Same as Abel Gideon.
Isaac Gideon - See above.
Isaac Jude - I prefer Jude as a first, but this is cute.
Reese - I much prefer the spelling Rhys, especially as Reese is being used more for girls nowadays. Rhys Nicastro would be so handsome!
Bennett - Love this! It's a great alternative to Benjamin, which I'm not so fond of and is so overused, as least IMO. Bennett Gideon would be adorable.
Damon - Not so keen on this one. I can see it ageing well though.
Everett - Despite it's shared ending with Bennett I'm not a fan of this name. Damon Everett would be very masculine and age well.
Levi - I have an on/off relationship with Levi lol, sometimes I like it sometimes I don't. Today it's feeling a little off to me, but it's still nice. I can see Levi Jude, and Levi Abel being handsome.

Bennett is precious <3.
Silas is on my list too (Kuster Silas) and Finn is adorable.
I also LOVE Reid!! My list combo with that one is Tyeson Reid <3
Of course, I love Archer Cole, don't change that one at all.
Good luck, hopefully Mike will come around to some others; they all just make such cute names <3

Silas Grey- Cute! I love it! My favorite of the list.
Jude Elijah- Love this one too!
Jude Phineas-Not a fan of Phineas
Abel Gideon- Not sure I like this one.
Abram Gunner- Surprisingly, I kind of like this one
Isaac Gideon- Cool name. I like Isaac better than Gideon
Isaac Jude- Love!
Reese- Love this name and this spelling. Would be great with a two-syllable middle name like Archer or Asher
Bennett- Love this one as well! I've really been into surnames as first names here lately. I think Wesley sounds cute with this name.
Damon- This names is a little dated to me.
Everett- I think is name is just so COOL! I like Lucas with this name
Levi- A very handsome name. I like James with this one.

Unfortunately Mike wasn't so keen to most of them... which I guess is alright seeing as our choice is already made So I guess its all just for my personal list anyway I'm not even sure how many kids I'll end up with in my future so its all good! Though I wont lie, I'm a little disappointed with a few of these. I could imagine using some of them one day.
Thanks for all the opinions though! It really does help me form my lists to hear what everyone thinks I'm loving all the love I'm getting here, most of these seem to be coming off well liked. Always encouraging! <3 Right this very second in time, Silas, Jude, and Levi are the ones I'd truly see myself using one day. Ahh so sweet <3
Also Hannah, I do like Rhys / Reese Nicastro!! Nicastro would need a very short name to go with it, Rhys / Reese is perfect! I've not even thought of pairing grandpa's surname with any of the above, which is funny as its normally one of my first thoughts haha. Thanks!

Jude Elijah: I use to love the name Elijah and then shortened it to Eli (which is still on my list). I've always seen it as a first name so Elijah Jude has a little better flow imo
Jude Phineas: I like Jude, but Phineas reminds me of the TV show.
Abel Gideon: I love both of these names!
Abram Gunner: Abram is super cute, not sure if I like Gunner much though.
Isaac Gideon: This name is perfect! I think they are both underused.
Isaac Jude: It's nice, I feel like somethings missing though.
Reese: I like this, but feel that the spelling Rhys is better for a boy.
Bennett: LOVE this name! Bennett Rhys would be adorable!!
Damon: Not really my style.
Everett: Very nice name, definitely has that southern charm to it
Levi: I'm always back and forth with this name. I could see if on someone else's child but not my own. I saw the combination Levi Montgomery once, which I thought was great!
Goodness just realized that I pretty much love all of your names! Archer Cole and Roman Connor will always be my favorites but I think that Silas Grey, Isaac Gideon, Bennett Rhys, or Levi Bennett would make a good potential brother!

Jude Elijah and Jude Phineas are very handsome, but my vote goes to Jude Phineas.
Abel Gideon is definitely one of my FAVORITES on this list. Love Abel, and Gideon is just plain cool.
Abram Gunner isn't really my style, but the two together are very handsome!
I like Isaac Gideon, but I personally prefer Abel Gideon <3
I actually considered Isaac Jude before settling on Isaac Blake. Very handsome combo, the two together are a handsome fit!
Reese - It's okay, I prefer the spelling, Rhys for a boy
Bennett - This one is definitely growing on me! Very cute.
Damon - I've always loved Damon <3
Everett - Love this name, it's so handsome!
Levi - Love Levi, but it's my best friend's son's middle name and it's popularity is somewhat of a turnoff to me personally, definitely ADORE the name though
Also, Rhys Nicastro is VERY handsome! I love that combo!
Posted 18 July 2013 - 06:11 PM
I've ranked your combos from my favorite to least favorite:
Silas Grey - I actually used to dislike Silas but I must admit it's been growing on me! Grey is a handsome middle name as well.
Isaac Jude - Classic and handsome combo.
Jude Elijah - Handsome! I love the flow of this combo.
Abel Gideon - I must admit neither Abel nor Gideon is my style. But the combo is nice.
Abram Gunner - Abram is not my style either, and I personally am not a fan of Gunner, due to the whole "gun" prefix.
I've also ranked your single names from my favorite to least favorite:
Damon - I love this name! So handsome.
Bennett - Also very handsome... such a cute spin on Benjamin.
Levi - Cute!
Everett - Nice, just not my style.
Reese - I'm not a fan of Reese... always makes me think of Reese's peanut butter cups!
