Thoughts on or boy list
my favourites are Beck, Arlo and Wylder.
I like these names.
Kieran - I prefer the Irish spelling of Ciaran
Wallace mn only I wouldn't want to be called Wally
Leopold - I prefer just Leo
I didn't include these choices because...
Some of your names sound pretentious to me: Aston (Martin), Remington (Steele), Sutton (Hotel), Berkeley (Ivy League school)
Names that sound like other words: Caedmon (caveman), Reading (pronounced redding or reeding?)
Names that are too country and western for my liking: Waylon, Autry
Names that are trendy or sound trendy: Brighton, Keaton, Hudson, Landry, Case, Harper, Arley, Beck, Jacoby, Graydon, Chauncey
I don't like the spelling of some of your names: Wylder (what's wrong with Wilder), Augusten (although I love Augustine), Naviyd (isn't it Navid or Naveed?), Lleyton (I knew a MALE Leighton long before Ms. Meester arrived on the scene)
Some names are just too "out there" to be usable: Thelonius
I find these names harsh sounding: Zoltan, Breccan, Emeric, Thackeray and Frost (the last two would be better in the middle spot)
Some names in the Bible are too Biblical even for me: Mordecai, Moses
Names I like
a lot of great names. we have a hudson...which wasn't that popular when we had him, but is shooting up the charts apparently. i love beck and crosby myself. the name thachary jumped out at me because my friend knew a guy with that name and spent all of his introductions clarifying THachary...not Zachary. everyone thought he had a lisp. good luck! your list is far more advanced than ours at this point! :)
So these are my favourites from your list
Wylder (prefer spelled Wilder)
My favorites are:
I would like Wylder if it was spelled Wilder.
Waylon is kind of cool though.
The Old Testament picks are all great, name-worthy people but sound almost too Old Testament to work in the modern world (Mordecai, Solomon, Moses). And that's coming from someone who likes a lot of Biblical names - I named my son Levi after all :)
Some sound more like girl names to me (Harper, Vesper, Arley, Arden, Auden, Autry, Berkeley) or are a little too "out there" for my taste (Naviyd).
Waylon is my hands down favorite!
