Weeding Through a Rather Long List
Hey berries! So my husband and I have a few boys names picked out, but none of them really compare to how much I love our girls names. So today I went through all the boys names listed on nameberry and made myself a long list. I haven't passed any by hubby(don't exactly want to because I know he will veto almost all of them!). Before I pass them by him I'd like to really come up with a good defense for some of the names I really like on the list so, I was wondering if I could get your opinions on these!

Wilder - Most men would like this I believe. I like it too, it's cute and makes me think of wild forests.
Liev - Oh, I think of Liev Schreibner. He's a decent actor and he and Naomi Watts are adorable together. Love this one.
Luca - Mm, Luca! Deliciously Italian.
Noah - I think this one's cute. Sweet little rosy cheeked brown haried boys in tree houses.
Jake - I'm not a fan but it is okay.
Jasper - Love this the most. One of my favourite boy names, so sweet and handsome and fun!
Joshua - I like this very much, mostly because of Joshua Radin. But a lovely name.
Ike - I don not like this very much. But if your hubs is a South Park fan he might go for it.
Isaac - It's quite handsome, but I prefer Isak.
Hurley - As in Elizabeth?
Finn - Yay! Very nice. Boys like Mark Twain and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, so I can't believe this'll be a hard sell.
Eli - I go back and forth. Looks girlie to me.
Ellis - Surname. But quite nice.
Davian - Looks like a smoosh of Damien and David.
Brooks - Surname... and not very nice.
Avi - Ok.
Adler - It's ok, I'd prefer Alder (as in the tree).
Adlai - Eh, no.
Ocean - Like. Sell it to the boys: Frank Ocean, brilliant musician.
Rhett - Rhett Butler was hot, and it's got a certain swagger.
Ryder - Winona? You've got better ones.
Seamus - Kind of cool, and definitely fun to say! Shea is a sweet nn.
Sterling - Badass motorbike name.
Soren - I pronounce it the Scandinavian way, so if you do, it's fine.
Vincent - Love this one. Starry starry night...
Ziven - It looks weird. And it sounds weird in my head.[FONT=Palatino Linotype][CENTER]My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014[/CENTER][/FONT]

Wilder- I think this is a spunky choice, very manly a lot like Hunter, but better

Joshua- another name I have never really liked
Ike- only as a nickname
Isaac- handsome choice
Hurley- its ok
Finn- its alright
Eli- I like it, handsome
Ellis- its ok
Davian- sounds made up

Wilder - Cool, masculine, strong - what man would argue?
Liev - I am so-so on this one personally
Luca - Yes! Luke is a great nn, but this is the first name to go with!
Noah - A personal favorite of mine and kids love it! Noahs are popular!
Jake - Just so popular right now!
Jasper - A handsome name but I can see trouble getting DH on board.
Joshua - my son's name! Joshua is a beautiful name and Josh is a strong nn - My Josh loves his name!
Ike - may as a nn for Isaac
Isaac - I love this! Ike or Zak are good nn's.
Hurley - Makes me think of Lost!
Finn - also strong and masculine - Ottilie is right - shouldn't be a hard sell
Eli - Again, very popular but I was going to call my daughter Elijah of she was a boy.
Ellis - I am so torn about this name. Not terribly masculine and will be a hard sell. I have a cousin Ellis and he hated his name.
Davian - Did you mean Damian?
Brooks - Too close to Brooke
Avi - I love this but outside of Israel might be a hard sell
Adler - a surname, not my style
Adlai - interesting, different and you may be too young to know of Adlai Stevenson
Ocean - Nope, nope, nope
Rhett - Might go over with some men but not usually.
Ryder - I like this kind of "cowboy" name, guys might like it too
Seamus - Might have pronunciation issues in the US
Sterling - Cool name with some art and some cowboy thrown in for an extra kick
Soren - unless you have a DH with Scandinavian background, maybe not
Vincent - I like Vincent, Vince is a great nickname and if he's not arty, try Vincent Price
Ziven - nope
