Im new and i need some suggestions!
Hi everyone, im due to have a boy in july and we havent decided on a name yet. My fiance and I are planning on marrying next year but the baby will definitely have his surname even though we aren't married yet.
his surname is Black and we're having trouble finding names that go with it because a lot of the names we like dont sound that great with Black as the surname.
at the moment our list is:
Alby - this one really doesnt go with the surname but we really like it
Chayton (a family name)
So I want some more names that you think suit our style and would also go with the surname Black.
I do think we like more trendy names but we do also want something unique so we're unsure about using Logan & Aiden because they're very popular where we live. So maybe trendy sounding but also unpopular?/

Congrats on your pregnancy and welcome to Nameberry! With a surname like Black, it's advisable to avoid another word for a first name. From your list, I think Zephan would be the most unique and memorable choice. I don't mind the flow of Logan Black either but it's a trendy name. Here are some suggestions.
Eamon (ay-mon) - a great alternative to the popular Aiden
Lorcan - a less popular choice than Logan

thanks everyone. i also prefer Gavin spelt like this but my fiance said we could only add it to the list if we spell it Gavyn but we can't agree on it so we probably wont use it in the end.
from your suggestions, i like:
Darian (this is a funny suggestion because my Derian is a family name on my fiance's sie and we considered it for a while.. maybe I'll bring it up again because I really like it)
