    Help me with Boys names!

    Hi All!

    I like fun names, geeky names are okay.

    Nature names are awesome, but not necessary.

    We have been in a naming rut for a while, and since we are not finding out what we are having, I feel I need a good list for both genders.

    So far, our top boy's names are

    Reid
    Remy
    Hawthorne
    Jonathan


    Some combos are Reid or Remy with Jonathan as a middle name (Reid Jonathan, Remy Jonathan)
    Another is Hawthorne Reid or some other middle name.

    Reid is a family name, but a bit too trendy now. Remy is cool, but has some negative connotations (its also the name of alcoholic beverage). Hawthorne is a nice, under used nature name, but some people think its too pretentious, or too hippy.

    Opinions are welcome. Just not too mean, I like all these names for different reasons.

    I like all of your name choices, pretty awesome names.

    Especially love:
    Remy Jonathan - What negative connotations does Remy have with it? I only have ever heard this name on the animated movie Ratatouille before.
    Hawthorne Reid - No, this name is not too pretentious or too hippy, to me it sounds very regal and classic but not too common.

    The only one I'm not too fond of from your list is Remy. I don't mind it as a nn. Remington has a similar problem to Hawthorn with feeling a tad pretentious, but it's a solid name. How about a longer name with Remy as a nickname for.... Jeremy, Jeremiah, Roman, or Ephraim? Based on your other names I assume you won't be into Remus

    Or you could use it for a girl as well--Rosemary or Ramona.

    Jonathan is always a solid choice and Jonathan Reid sounds great.

    Hawthorne is a bit trendy now, but it could work depending on your style. nn's Hawk, Thorn, Thane, even Theo could make it more usable.
    Hawthorne Reid is a bit too many word names together though, so maybe something else in the middle. Hawthorne Remy and Hawthorne Jonathan don't really work that great either.

    I really like all your name choices, and they all mix and match so nicely. I don't find Hawthorne to pretentious at all, Hawthorne Reid is awesome.
    I've never heard of an alcohol beverage called Remy, and even if I had it's not a very obvious association like vodka would be. So Remy I'd say is pretty safe to use.

    Thank you everyone for your feedback so far! I really appreciate it

    I've also started asking people IRL. I've gotten mostly positive feedback, so that makes me feel good. I realize some of my names aren't going to be everyone's cup of tea, but that's okay too
