    rate these boy names

    Porter, Parker, Mercer, and Wilder

    Not sure I am daring enough to use Wilder as a first name but I love it and it honors family.

    I like Mercer, and I've always kind of liked Parker. I see some appeal in Wilder, but it's overall a little...wilder than would be my style. I don't like Porter at all - it's too closely associated with bellhops and doormen. On a 1 to 10 scale, I'd give the following: Mercer 8, Parker 7, Wilder 7, and Porter 2.

    Honestly, I'd put Wilder first because at least Wil would be an option as a nickname. I don't like any of the others really. Mercer is okay, but it's soooo much a surname to me that it's like naming a kid Smith. Porter and Parker feel like half-surnames half-servants---"go park my car and bring in my bags while you're at it!"

    1 Mercer - the more unusual choice
    2 Porter - sounds distinguished
    3 Wilder - better in the middle spot

    I dislike Parker (park her?). It's one of my least favourite occupational names.
    All the best,
    Mischa.
