    Help! I'm so bored! Refresh my boys' list!

    My girls' list gives me chills. I love the names on it. Aurelia makes me swoon. Matilda makes me giggle. Clementine makes me smile. Genevieve makes me feel so happy. I could name 10 daughters and feel good about their names (after I agonized over the perfect combinations... not so great at that... but I digress).

    But my boys list feels so dull in comparison! There are undeniably great names on it. Any one of which would work on a little boy and he wouldn't grow up to hate his name. But they don't inspire me the way my girl's list does.

    A few do: I really love Atticus, Oliver, Dexter and Milo. I like Atlas, Dashiell, Westley and Felix, but these are relatively new and I'm not married to them yet.

    I also have a thing for short, punchy "nicknamey" names for boys: Max, Jay, Dean, Gus, Freddie.
    But often can't find longer versions I love as much.

    So here's my current list:
    Max
    Maxwell
    Dexter
    Frederick
    Harrison
    Oliver
    Dashiell
    Cyrus
    Atticus
    Gus
    Elliott
    Ronan
    Malcolm
    Wilder
    Maddox

    Thoughts and suggestions for my lost, helpless soul?

    Thanks for the help guys!

    liviajoan: I like Lennox, but I'm afraid people will associate it with dinnerware. Am I crazy? I'll add it for now. I also like: Knox, Wyatt

    valentine: Wow, yeah, we have really similar taste! (It's excellent, btw!) I like so many from your list!: Stellan, Cormac, Gale, Dominic, and Lucien/Lucian. I'll look into those more.

    emilyva: I flirted with Dylan for awhile, but ultimately decided that I didn't love it enough to overcome its popularity. :/ I like: Sebastian, Orion, Conan, Cedric, Atlas
