Boys names with swagger?
What names do you think have enough confidence and swagger to offset a nerdy last name? This is one of my name dilemmas - my last name is not pretty and it makes a lot of otherwise very nice names unusable.
Not sure I'd actually use these, but these make my list of first names that add a touch of style to a goofy last name:
Vesper (I love this but don't think it would be accepted as a boy name)
What names would you add to the list?

Could you give us a clue as to your last name? What makes it so bad? And if it's really bad news, are you sure you want to pass it on?
I do have friends who changed their surnames-- one family went from Finkelstein to Freeman (still vaguely Jewish but loads cooler); another from Picklesheimer to just Heimer.
One thing to think about is that a bad-news surname acts as a magnet, drawing the attention of all (bullies or not). It might be easier to pick a first name that's less of a style statement-- like James Picklesheimer or Miles Finkelstein. It's a lot easier for a kid to wear than Wolf Picklesheimer or Eero Finkelstein.Blade, MD
