    For a shy boy, I would do something fairly mainstream. I was painfully shy as a child, so I loved that my name was super popular--it made me feel like I sort of "fit in", even if I didn't really feel like I did, in all other regards. It may not be like that for all shy children, but I would think it could be a plus. I think something like Elijah, Brody, Samuel, Henry, Gabriel, Charles, Daniel, Ethan, Evan, Jude, Patrick, Tristan, Caleb, etc. would fit. I think something like Elliot, Theodore, Henry, Charles, etc., would fit for a bookworm.

    Good luck!

    I agree with this. My brother was really shy growing up and his name was unusual for the time and softer sounding (though it's much more common now) and I know that he really disliked it as a kid. I would suggest something classic or mainstream, like Alexander, Benjamin, Oliver, etc.
