    I need more boy names for my list!

    I was just looking up where my favourite boy's names ranked in the 2012 UK baby name statistics and the majority of them are far too common for me to consider using! I'm not pregnant and won't be for a while but can anyone recommend some names that fit my 'style' that aren't too common?

    Here's my list so far with rankings:

    BenjaminBenji” #32
    Callum #51
    Emmett #1152
    Freddie #38
    George #12
    Isoa (Not ranked)
    JacobJake” #5
    JoshuaJosh” #11
    Leo #20
    Oscar #17
    Otto #375
    Reuben #68
    SebastianSeb” #41
    Toby #49
    Todd #1152

    Out of these names I'd only consider Emmett (although would use as a middle name), Isoa, Otto and Todd, as I'd prefer names that are not in the top 100. I'm not sure what my exact style is, but please give me suggestions of names you'd think I'd like based on the names above.

    Some names I've just taken off my list (so please don't suggest!):

    Alfred
    Dexter
    Jack
    Dylan
    Alexander
    Frederic
    Lucas
    Nicholas
    Theo
    Atticus
    August
    Edmund
    Edward
    Edwin
    Gregory
    Harry
    James
    Oliver
    Patrick
    Wilfred
    Eddard

    (Huge clear out haha!) Thank you!

    Hi @ashleyjuliette

    Thanks for your suggestions! I'm going to be really annoying and say I don't like any of them I'm so so picky!! Thank you for introducing me to many names I hadn't heard of before though! There are some interesting ones there that I like (e.g. Atlas & Orlando) but wouldn't put them on my list because I couldn't see myself naming a child that. Thank you again!

    Hello there. I'm not so sure of the popularity of these suggestions in your area (I tried to list ones I didn't think overly popular generally), but think they fit with your 'style' minus so much of the popularity, so perhaps you might find something suitable...

    Lincoln
    Wyatt
    Curtis
    Quentin
    Emil
    Corbin
    Nelson
    Finnian/Fintan
    Ezra
    Byron
    Fletcher
    Colin
    Reid
    Conrad
    Matthias
    Dean
    Asher/Ashton
    Bram

    Hi @sunniva

    I like a lot of these names, (e.g. Harrison & Ashton) but again I don't really think I'd name my child one of these names. As I think is the case with a lot of people, boy's names don't seem to really excite me like girl's names do! Thanks for your suggestions though & I'm glad I've got lots of new names to look at & think about
