    Help me love some long names!

    Hello there!

    Lately it's been bothering me more and more that they only boys' names I seem to love are extremely short (in letter count and syllable count). I was hoping you all could help me find some boys' names to love that are longer (both letter-wise and syllable count) based on some names I DO love.

    Long boys' names I like: Alexander (the only one I love), Gabriel, Nicholas, and Nathaniel
    Short names I like: Owen, Mark, Evan, Adam, Ryan, Ian, Jack, Connor, Caleb, and Cole.

    I would love some suggestions of 3-4 (or longer) syllable names, preferably with more letters (though I guess that's not as important). As you can see I do have a pretty common, "plain" and classic taste in names - but still with some spunk today, so I'd like to stick with names in that general style. Thanks in advanced!

    Based on your taste, it seems you'd like Harrison, Jefferson, and maybe Gallagher.

    Anderson or Chancellor might do it for you as you could have Anders or Chance, which also fits your short style. Evander and Coleman are also expansions from your short name list. Maverick could be Mark too.

    -And adding Nathaniel (Thane or Nate), Benedict (Ben), Jonathan (Nate), and Dominic (Nic) based on your style.

    Future boy: Peter, Thomas, or Isaac
