    Opinions/Perceptions of our list

    These are some names that my fiancé and I have thrown around for our future hypothetical children. I'd love it if y'all could give some opinions/perceptions/etc. about any or all of the names. Be as brutal or polite as you please! This is all hypothetical at this point so I'm looking for honesty over ego stroking!!

    Some are names I love and some are names he "loves", and so as to get a more unbiased opinion they're all going to be lumped together.

    Beau/Bowen
    Boone
    Deacon
    Dean
    Destry
    Duke
    Everett
    Gunnar
    Hawthorne
    Holden
    Jasper
    Lincoln
    Remington
    Rhett
    River
    Shepherd
    Silas
    Wade
    Wilder
    Wyatt

    Have at it! And thanks!!

    Beau/Bowen: Love the name Beau, think it's cute for a little boy and would grow well into adulthood
    Boone: Not too fond of...maybe as a nickname for something just not sure what
    Deacon: Like
    Dean: Love. Classic, old fashioned yet current at the same time
    Destry: Different, sounds kind of made up. Origins/meaning behind it?
    Duke: Ok
    Everett: Ok
    Gunnar: Not a fan
    Hawthorne: Love. Also love the nn Thor
    Holden: Cute but becoming trendy
    Jasper: Like
    Lincoln: Becoming trendy
    Remington: Love
    Rhett: Ok, sounds like it's missing something
    River: Not a fan
    Shepherd: Not a fan
    Silas: Love
    Wade: Ok
    Wilder: Love! So cute yet masculine at the same time
    Wyatt: Like

    So of your list, I LOVE Beau, Dean, Remington, Hawthorne, Silas, and Wilder. You have a good, solid list with a lot of choices!

    I'll bunch this lot together:
    Beau/Bowen
    Dean
    Everett
    Jasper
    Silas

    ^ Some I love, some are NMS, but I think they'd all make good names.

    And why I'd personally not use the others:
    Boone, Deacon, Holden, Lincoln, Shepherd, Wyatt - surnames, occupations and places. I'm generally not a fan of that sort of names.
    Destry - reminds me of 'destitute'.
    Duke - dog name
    Gunnar - sounds violent
    Hawthorne - it sounds very clunky as a FN. And I don't like hawthorn trees!
    Remington - I think of the haircare company
    Rhett - I have an irrational hatred of this name
    River - a geographical feature
    Wade - a verb? And what you'd do through the aforementioned feature? Dislike.
    Wilder - why would you want a kid to be wilder?!

    Hope that wasn't too harsh :/
