Brainstorming: boys names that start with M
My husband's family has a tradition of giving boys M names. No M names seem to strike our fancy, but we love traditions, so we want to keep mulling it over.
The following names are off the table and cannot be used:
Max (all forms)
So of all the remaining boy M names in the world, which would you choose and WHY? The why is really important to us to give us fresh perspective. It can be something simple like "I knew a nice guy once with the name" or a stereotype of how you imagine a man with that name. I've read through M list after M list, but I'd love some insightful Berry comments to bring names to life
Thank you so much for your help!

I would Pick Malachi. I am fond of name meanings, and this one means "messenger" or "angel". I would like my child to grow into their name, with the proper upbringing and become a messenger of God. I am fond of biblical names, and the book of Malachi. Great nick name option...Kai/Ky
I, may also pick Mateusz, the polish version of Matthew, to honour a loved one....name meaning "Gift of God". Another great meaning.
Names I also like...Major, Madigan, Morris, Matthias, Miller, and Mylo.
Macintosh nn Mack
Macintyre/Macintosh nn Mac
Malachi nn Kai
Malcolm nn Mac
Milton nn Milty

My favorite M-name for a boy is Marlowe. Christopher Marlowe was a brilliant Elizabethan playwright (more celebrated than Shakespeare in his day) with a very colorful personal life. Philip Marlowe was a detective in Raymond Chandler's hard boiled mystery novels, which gives the name a dashing noirish appeal. I love the sophisticated, scholarly sound of Marlowe. While it's used for girls as well, I think Marlowe works beautifully for boys.Simon, Eloise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Marina, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Ruby Louise, Archer, Violet, Gabriel, Persephone, Dov, Louisa
Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...

Marek - there are plenty of ric/rik/rec/reck names out there, this is just one of the M versions, great alternative to the more common Eric
Malachi (Mal) - LOVE THE NICKNAME MAL, but hate Malcolm
Markel - the sweetest little boy from the book & movie Howl's Moving Castle
March - inspired from Little Women, has been gaining a small following
Marcus - gives normal boring Mark a little grown up 'oomph'
Marius - feels sophisticated
Marshall - a surname and title name! nn or shorten to Marsh = nature name!
Merritt - great male virtue name
Mars - mythology name, feels very strong and confident to me
Maverick - a lil trendy, but such a blue jean, cowboy BOY name lol
Morpheus - just throwing it out there lol
Mordred - literary from the tales of King Arthur
Mozart - prefer the musical Amadeus, but a little Mozart running around still seems lovely
