I recently wrote about some VERy exciting names for girls, and now it’s time for the boys’ list.

Here are seven names containing the PER sound – one “per” day. You may be surprised just how versatile this syllable is. So versatile that I couldn’t put them all in one list – so, as promised on Monday, here come the boys:
