    Unique boy names for sporty types?

    Hi Berries!

    No kids anytime soon but I'm a writer and have always loved names, both while naming characters and when thinking about future kids. I've ALWAYS had trouble with boy names for my own (future) children, simply because I want a unique, uncommon name but also one that won't seem "sissy" or with any room to get kicked around.

    Typically I really like "jock" names. Some I've considered are:

    Rex
    Rhett
    George (but I fear this is too common)
    Thomas (family name, but want a cool, uncommon nn...any ideas?)

    I also LOVE traditional English names but fear they are WAY too common. I wouldn't want my kid being the 15th Charlie, Harry, etc. in the class.

    Thanks in advance Berries!

    To me, Jock names are very macho sounding names, so here are the ones that come to mind:

    Hunter
    Jackson
    Holden
    Stryker/Striker
    Maddox
    Colby


    Hope this helps!

    If you're worried about names being too common, I definitely recommend looking up SSA rankings! You can find them over at Behind the Name, or just by Googling. I'm assuming you're in the U.S, since you have Boston in your username. You're right that Charlie is pretty popular right now (#233 last year), but Harry is actually all the way down at #717.

    Tam or Tip could be nicknames or Thomas.

    Crew was the first name to come to mind when I read your post.
