Percy Archer Thomas

Rory Benjamin Fox

 Jude Apollo ? // Jude Memphis ? // Jude Ezekiel  ? // Jude ? ?

Stellan Walter Wren // Stellan ? Wren

Ezra Hawthorne Blair // Ezra Hawthorne ?  -  SOO handsome.  But in my opinion Blair is unecessary.  Maybe Ezra Hawthorne Grey?

 

Harper Nehemiah  -  I don't like Harper for a boy at all.  It's always just been a girls name to me.  I don't really like Nehemiah...  Maybe Nathaniel or Jeremiah instead for the middle name?  Hayes, Dexter, or Calvin, maybe?  I adore Hayes, but Dexter and Calvin aren't bad and maybe you'll like them, I don't know.

 

Percy Archer Thomas - I don't like Percy because of the possible teasing... It is a derogatory name for a certain female body part that a lot of guys say...  Starts with p, ends with y.  Percy is cool, but for that reason, I wouldn't use it, because kids are cruel.  Archer is handsome and Thomas goes well, although it's a bit common.  Maybe Tobias instead?

 

Rory Benjamin Fox - Rory is hard for me to say, but it's cool.  Fox is cool also, but it's too much in this combo, I think.  Benjamin is a fine name, but common, so kind of boring...

 

Jude Ezekiel - I don't really like Jude much, I just think it sounds weird.  I don't like Apollo or Memphis, but Ezekiel is okay.  But if the middle name is too unusual, and his classmates find out about it, they might tease him for that, unfortunately.  Uniqueness is good, but for a boy, especially, he might be teased for it.

 

Stellan Walter Wren // Stellan ? Wren - I don't like Stellan because I think of Stella, a girly name.  Wren is girly, and Walter is okay.  I don't especially like it, but I don't hate it.

 

? Gavin Shelby - Shelby is girly to me, although I know a guy named Shelby.  Gavin is handsome and will age well.

 

? ? Memphis - I don't like Memphis at all.

 

Silas ? ? - Silas is so handsome.

 

Forrest ? ?"Four" - Forrest is kind of weird to me, and I don't think your child would appreciate being called by a number, even though there is a super hero who goes by Four (lol, Divergent).

 

Uriah ? ? - Did you read Divergent, lol?  I don't like it though, even though it's unique.

Ezra Hawthorne Blair // Ezra Hawthorne ? - I love Ezra, and Hawthorne has grown on me though it's always had a surname-y feel to me. I'm not a huge fan of Blair, though it goes okay. I like the suggestion of Grey/Gray as the second middle name. Ezra Hawthorne Chase would be very handsome, as would Ezra Hawthorne Jude. If you're still not sure I would look through other one-syllable names, because it flows nicely with just one syllable there.

 

Harper Nehemiah Ford // Harper Nehemiah ? - I actually do really like Harper on a boy, but Nehemiah isn't my style, and neither is Ford, because I automatically think of the car brand. Again, you'll probably want a one-syllable name at the end. What about Harper Nehemiah Bryce, Harper Nehemiah Luke, Harper Nehemiah Lane, Harper Nehemiah Finn, Harper Nehemiah Scott, Harper Nehemiah Hayes, Harper Nehemiah Tate, or Harper Nehemiah Blaine? 

 

Percy Archer Thomas - I love all three names, but something feels clunky about how this combo flows. I don't think the teasing potential is a reason to not use a name you love, especially since kids will find a way to tease anyone if they want to. I think the only reason it feels off to me is because all names are two-syllable... maybe try a three-syllable name in the middle instead? Percy Christopher Thomas, Percy Abraham Thomas, Percy Benjamin Thomas, Percy Elijah Thomas, or maybe even just Percy Thomas Archer? It seems to flow a tad better for some reason.

 

Rory Benjamin Fox - Fox isn't my cup of tea (it's also my cousins' last name), but Rory Benjamin is so handsome. I love it! I would say this combo is a really good one, and a little boy would probably love having Fox in his name too.

 

 Jude Apollo ? // Jude Memphis ? // Jude Ezekiel  ? // Jude ? ? I absolutely LOVE Jude. It doesn't seem to flow right with Apollo or Memphis, but Ezekiel is nice with it. Anyway, onto suggestions: Jude Andrew Carlisle, Jude Ezekiel West, Jude Apollo Vincent, Jude Memphis Hayes, Jude Memphis Ian, Jude Apollo Samuel, Jude Ezekiel Garrett? 

 

Stellan Walter Wren // Stellan ? Wren - I love Stellan, and Wren is okay but has a bit of a feminine feel to me. Stellan Walter Wren is nice, though, with the masculinity of Walter balancing out the unisex Wren. Suggestions: Stellan Zachary Wren, Stellan Timothy Wren, Stellan Carter Wren, Stellan Jacob Wren? Side note, it would be cool if you did Stellan Walter Andrew or Stellan Walter Allan or something and ended up with a last name that starts with T, because then his initials could be SWAT haha.

 

? Gavin Shelby - I agree that Shelby sounds feminine, especially since I've known two female Shelley's, and it sounds so similar. But if you pair two masculine names with it, I see no problem. Christopher Gavin Shelby, Carson Shelby Gavin, Samuel Gavin Shelby, Frederick Gavin Shelby, Leo Gavin Shelby, Theodore Gavin Shelby, Thomas Gavin Shelby, Noah Gavin Shelby?

 

? ? Memphis - Despite Memphis not being my style, I think it's handsome and if it were a first the nickname Mem is cute. As always, it kind of depends on your style what names you would want here, especially in the first spot, but I'll make a few suggestions anyway. Ezra Hayden Memphis, Hayden Lee Memphis, Carter/Carson John Memphis, Zachary David Memphis, Thomas Cole Memphis?

 

Silas ? ? - Silas has been growing on me since I first saw it. Silas Kellan Joseph would be really handsome. Others: Silas Peter Gale, Silas Dean William, Silas Daniel Ethan? 

 

Forrest ? ?"Four" - Honestly, as much as I like this, it's in a guilty pleasure sort of way. It would be super cool as a teenager, a little awkward but cute as a kid, and as an adult, it would take a special guy to pull it off. But if you pair it with fairly common middles, he could always drop the nickname/first name and go by one of those if he ends up disliking it. Suggestions: Forrest Connor Tate, Forrest Henry James, Forrest Oliver Jacob/Jason, Forrest Jeremiah Seth?

 

Uriah ? ? - This one has grown on me since Divergent, though I don't think I would use it. Suggestions: Uriah Carson Felix, Uriah Joseph Hale, Uriah Benjamin Lee?

 

Good luck with your combos!

Thank you for your response! Really appreciate feedback.  No, I didn't read Divergent, I didn't realize there was a Uriah in it, haha :) 

 

Percy Archer Tobias is nice, but Thomas is an important honoring name for me.

Your response was super helpful, thanks!!  :D 

 

Harper Nehemiah Luke is so handsome, but I have a quite awful Luke in my close family.  :(  Harper Nehemiah Lane is awesome, but is it too "unisex" with Harper? I'm often told my boy names/combos are too feminine, lol. 

 

I'm using a few of your suggestions  :)

Ezra Hawthorne: I love Ezra Hawthorne on its own! The name Ezra has slowly creeped to the top of my list, I think it would be absolutely adorable on any little boy. Hawthorne really adds that vintage, literary aspect to the combination that makes it so perfect! 

 

Harper Nehemiah Jack: I would LOVE to see Harper on a boy, seeing as it has become so popular on girls lately. I'm not a huge fan of Nehemiah. Jack sounds good on the end though. I like the suggestion of Nathaniel and think Harper Nathaniel Lane or Harper Nathaniel Jack would be a great mix of unisex and boy names. 

 

Percy Archer Thomas: Love all three names! However, I think Percy works better in the middle name spot. What do you think of Archer Percy Thomas? 

 

Rory Benjamin Fox: Rory Benjamin is very handsome! Fox isn't really my style. Just using some of the names throughout your list, what do you think of Rory Benjamin Wade or Rory Benjamin Jude? I think any one syllable name would go well on the end..like Grant, Hayes, Cole, Jack, etc.

 

Jude Ezekiel River: This combo has great flow!  I think it's the perfect balance of unique names without being over the top. 

 

Stellan Carter Wade: The name Stellan is so handsome to me, my only worry is that it is so close to Stella. That aside, I really like this combination. 

 

Theodore Gavin Shelby "Theo": Theodore Gavin is so handsome! I know Shelby is considered unisex, but it's all girl to me. So that kind of throws me off a little. 

 

Andrew Memphis ("Rue" when he's little): Andrew is such a classic and you can never go wrong! I'm in love with the nickname Rue too! Memphis isn't my style though. I think Andrew Percy Thomas would be great together! If you're looking for more place names I like, Andrew Hudson, Andrew Caspian, Andrew Camden, Andrew Boston..what do you think?

 

Silas Alexander ? // Silas Alexander: I think Silas Alexander could easily stand as an awesome name on it's own. How do you feel about Silas Alexander Percy or Jonah Silas Alexander?

 

Henry Forrest: Very handsome! I prefer Forrest in the middle spot. 

 

Uriah: Not crazy about Uriah. But I do love it's meaning. I think it could definitely work well as a middle name!

***

Jonah:  Very nice name. I like it paired with Silas and Alexander

Jameson: This used to be on my list as Ezra Jameson. I think it's very handsome and works well with a variety of names. 

Larson:  A little too surname-y for me. But it's still usable. I would pair it with something a little more classic to balance it out. Maybe Henry Larson, Henry Andrew Larson, Larson Carter, etc.

Lane Caspar August: Caspar isn't my style, and I would much prefer Jasper. Otherwise Lane and August are cute!

Ezra Hawthorne Blair- Love Ezra Hawthorne! IMO Blair is too "light" of a mane for this combo. I really like Madi's suggestion of Ezra Hawthorne Gray.

Harper Nehemiah Jack- This name is SUPER handsome! I really loved Harper Ford, but this combo is really cool.

Percy Archer Thomas // Percy Thomas Archer- Percy is really cute. I think of the football player (Percy Harven) and the train in Thomas. It is an older name, but I think it could make a come back. It is so cute how you talk about your future family-- little kids running around :). Anyway, Percy Archer Thomas is my fave of those choices.

Rory Benjamin Fox- Cute, not sure about fox, but Rory Benjamin is nice. Rory Benjamin Wade, Rory Benjamin Jonah, Rory Benjamin Jude.

Jude Ezekiel River // Jude Apollo Franklin- I prefer Jude as a mn, but of these combos I like Jude Apollo Franklin. Apollo has been just digging on kme lately :) .

Stellan Carter Wade- this one is nms, but is a nice combo.

Theodore Gavin Shelby "Theo"- I am also really loving Theodore right now. Theodore Gavin is nice. Not sure about Shelby though... Theodore Gavin Wade, Theodore Gavin Uriah, Theodore Gavin Ford.

Andrew Memphis ("Rue" when he's little)- Really like the nn for Andrew :), and Memphis is really cool with it!

Silas Alexander ? // Silas Alexander- Silas Alexander is SUPER handsome!! ;)

Forrest Henry // Henry Forrest- I like Forrest Henry, it is cute and sweet!

Uriah- I understand the biblical reference here. Really cool, it might make a better mn though.
 
Lane Caspar August- this one is nms, but also quite handsome.

Hope I helped. <3

Ezra Hawthorne Blair - Nms, but the combo flows nicely. Have you considered switching Blair and Hawthorne as I think it would be less choppy without the two two-syllable names right next to eachother, putting a one-syllable name inbetween them would be an improvement.

Harper Nehemiah Jack - I really like this, I think Jack really balances the unisexness of Harper. I can see this name on a handsome young man.

Percy Thomas Archer - I think Thomas Archer flows better when said. Percy is a gp of mine. Lovely combo.

Rory Benjamin Fox - LOVE IT. Probably my favorite name on your list.

Jude Ezekiel River - I prefer this combo to the other. Jude is so handsome, Ezekiel is great, River is a nice change of style thrown in.

Stellan Carter Wade - Cute. Stellan is definitely different, but cute. Although I can't picture Stellan on a grown man. Love Carter, Wade is nms.

Theodore Gavin Shelby "Theo" - I cannot picture Shelby on a guy, but that may be cause to my knowing multiple female Shelby's. I love the nn Theo. Gavin is on my list also.

Andrew Memphis ("Rue" when he's little) - Very nice combo. Rue seems very feminine. Andy? Drew?

Silas Alexander - Silas Alexander Jonah? Silas Uriah Alexander? Silas Larson Alexander? Jamison Silas Alexander?

Forrest Henry - Forrest is a gp of mine, love it. Henry is very traditional, not my taste.

Uriah - Lovely name, definitely underused. Jameson Uriah? Caspar Lane Uriah?
