Your Favourite Boy Name And Why?
You get to see so many people's favourites on here but I'm interested in why you berries love your boy names!
I love classic and vintage names and sometimes find it hard to see why Mason is so popular or why there are lots of Braydens about. So for me- I love William. It sounds strong, handsome, English and classic and it ages well. But what makes you so crazy about your top boy name?!

Our favorite is Ezra. I find it hard to like boy names and this is the only one I really like. It just jumped out at me and I like the way it sounds.

My favorite is Henry. It goes well with a family name for me and it's a name that I find appropriate for all ages (baby Henry, Henry in middle school, Uncle Henry, grandpa Henry...), plus it's a classic name, easy to spell, easy to pronounce, and is popular but not too popular (as in, I've never met a Henry nor do I know of people naming any of their babies around me Henry).Favorite girl names of the moment: Cecilia, Eleanor, Amelia, Violet, Charlotte, and Ramona
Favorite boy names of the moment: Henry, Micah, Jack, Elijah, Owen, and Jonah

To actually use: I like Roy - I think it's warm, friendly, and unassuming (maybe a little like Ron in Harry Potter, but without having to be short for Ronald) and it has family connections.
That I feel like I can't use but someone else should: Cary - I think it's a strong, handsome, and classic name that's a good candidate to contradict the theory that traditionally male names are cute on little girls but anything that has ever come close to being a female name is deeply humiliating for a little boy. I probably wouldn't name a child after myself though.
Completely out of left field: Bertram - I'm not sure how well it would work in the real world, but I think it has a really appealing sound. It's the kind of name that a sexy foreigner could make sound exotic and cool, but your baby could end up hating you for.
