    Findy Shary, Mixy Matchy

    Buoyed up* ( ) by your marvellous suggestions on my girl's name thread and just generally giddy that tonight I got to write about Leo and Idabecca for the first time, I decided to make my boy's thread.

    With the boys my problem is vastly different. Unlike the girlies, I have no trouble loving tons of boy names - as evidenced by my list of possible first names - however I still fail at coming up with fresh combinations and would love to hear more suggestions as to new names I might like. Feel free to comment on the names too if that tickles your fancy but there're a lot so don't feel like you have to.

    Rules are the same as with the girls. I have simple tastes (read 'am exceptionally picky') and my criteria runs thusly. The name must be: a legitimate name, spelt correctly, not a surname** and not a word/place name. I'm open to names from any culture and tend to like the unusual and old fashioned.

    My faves:
    Atticus - love the literary significance
    Casimir - I like this name as I like Casper and Caspian so this name is reminscent of them but at the same time being more distinct
    Eli
    Horatio - I actually love this name... and this may be just me but I always think of that redhead with the sunglasses and his oneliner (before it cuts to commercial) on csi miami (I like this association because he makes me laugh)
    Julian - this is my cousins name

    Diego - I like Spanish names
    Alasdair - this has an exotic yet fresh flair to it
    Benedict - reminds me of the pope in a good way (no I am not religious)
    Jasper - No clue why I like it I just think it is a cool name
    Luciano - has the hispanic/latin flair
    Pascal - I always think of an intelligent Philosophical free-spirited person when I hear this name
    Rafferty - no idea why I like this name, but it is cute and maybe I see him with a little bit of a fun and funny side
    Stewart
    Tristan - I love this name
    (I like the aesthetics of all these names)

    Combos: (I'm still not very good at this but I have fun matching things)

    Atticus William Jasper
    Horatio Michael Pascal
    Julian Edmond Diego
    Julian William Rafferty
    Casimir Joseph Pascal
    Bram William Stewart
    Cesar Richard Joby
