Can you help me pick the most british inspired name?
Jack- Union Jack
Ferdinand nn Ferdie or Nando- Football player. I'm a Fan of soccer(Manchester United)
Beckham nn Becks- See above
If you have any better ideas or suggestions. Let me know! Would like it to go with mn Edward and girls names, Darcy and Maisy.
Jack is quite plain. London isn't a bit chavvy, and is generally used for girls. Beckham is a bit like naming your son Michael Jackson to me. I love Ferdinand, but Ferdinand Edward is a lot of D's. Why not simply go for British style, rather than being so literal? For example, Rupert, Rufus, Bruno, Hugo, etc. Otherwise, why not look at British history and find some names from famous people?
I didn't want the name to be so subtle you know? I want people to know it has to do something with Britian.
Btw this is all hypothetical!
Of your options listed, I think London is the only one that is obviously tied to Britain. I think London Edward sounds nice. Yes, London is used more for girls, but I don't think it's necessarily a "female" name. I can definitely see it on a boy. Jack just has too many other associations--nobody would think of the Union Jack, I'm afraid. Beckham is honoring an athlete rather than Britain as a whole. Other ideas you might like:
Chester (British city name)
Preston (British city name)
Royal, nickname Roy
Winston, Thatcher, Chaucer, Britain, Saxon, Bard, Warwick or any number of place names beyond London.
English, Shakespeare, Churchill, Cricket, Rugby. the only name on your list that made me think of England was London.
Not sure. There aren't a lot of names that scream English to me. Even the ones I suggested are kind of so-so. London is about the only one on your original list that does. With Jack I think of Pirates of the Caribbean. Beckham, I just think of David, not really his country, considering he played in the US in recent memory with the L.A. Galaxy. Ferdinand makes me think of Austria, Franz Ferdinand, King Ferdinand & Queen Isabella of Spain, etc.
I like the names Jack and Ferdinand though, but yeah, don't think of England when I hear them.
