    Thoughts on Flynn?

    It's become my favorite boys name and I'd liked to use it on my future first son. I've heard a lot of different reactions too it; some people like it, and others say it's too childish for a man. What do you think?

    I'm also trying to think of middle names, and I'm currently liking Flynn James. My only dispute is that it's a two syllable name altogether, which is kinda odd sounding. What other mn's would you suggest?

    It's not my favourite boys name for sure. I'm thinking it's the spelling that is unappealing to me. The sound is nice, but I just couldn't get over the -ynn ending.
    Just have to comment on your other boy names in your signature though, because I LOVE them! Atlas and Ezra are two of my favourites!

    I don't particularly like James as a middle name at all, honestly - it's the boy equivalent of Rose/Grace that sounds good with a lot of names and is incredibly overused. Then add in the 1-1 rhythm and it's just not a combo I would use.

    I would like Flynn better if it didn't make me immediately think of Errol Flynn, who was attractive but not very admirable at all. I do like Finn, though, so I suspect I would like Flynn if not for ol' Errol. I don't think Flynn is childish. I just don't like it as much as Finn/Finnian/Finnegan etc. I probably do like it more than Finlay though.

    2+ syllable middles are what I would pair with Flynn.
    Flynn Miles - this was the closest to James I could come up with that flows a bit better to my ear.
    Flynn Lucas
    Flynn Dominic/Patrick/Cormac
    Flynn Raphael/Gabriel/Cassiel/Kemuel
    Flynn Alexander/Alastair/Evander/Lysander
    Flynn Augustus/Zacharias/Tobias
    Flynn Malachy/Zachary/Gregory

    I do find it easier to use 1-syllable names as middles but that's probably just some weird mental block I have. I have a lot more combos of "[something] Finn" than "Finn [something]"
