    Why are boys names so hard?

    A few days ago I made a list of my top 15 boys. Earlier today I decided I didn't love any of the names on the list, and am now starting over. I don't know why I have such a hard time coming up with boy names I like, let alone love. I have a huge girl list, and can't decide what I can lose, while the boys side is blank. My very favorite girl names are in my signature, could you use these names to suggest boy names that would work well?

    Here are some boy names I have been thinking about, but not sure whether I like them or not:

    Elliot
    Emerson
    Emmett
    Ian
    Noah
    Oliver
    Owen
    Roman
    Ronan
    Rowan

    Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Elliot ~ Emmett ~ Oliver ~ Owen ~ Roman ~ Ronan ~ Rowan

    I have a bit of a problem with boys names too. Girl names seem easier, however for both genders there's only a handful (or maybe 2) of names that I absolutely love.

    Elliott
    Theo
    Caspian
    August
    Arthur
    Hugo
    Felix
    Henry
    Bennett
    Beckett
    Charlie
    Jack
    Leo
    Matteo
    Vincent
    Sebastian
    Archer / Archie

    Thanks opheliaflora! Elliot/Elliott was on my top 15 list, and I do like it. I just don't love it as much as my girls names, but it's probably going to end up staying on the list. I also had Leo but removed it because I feel like it works better as a nn, but don't like any of the longer versions. I do kind of like Theo, but would probably go with Theodore nn Theo. Henry, Jack, Matteo, and Sebastian have already been used in my family.

    Boys' names are hard for me too! I guess I just like "pretty" names in general.

    Try...
    Elijah/Eli (Eli could also be a nn for Elliott)
    Logan
    Finn
    Liam
    Eva ♡
    Georgia | Rose | Kate | Eleanor | Eliza | Jane | Maya
    Jack | Theodore | Tobias | August | Caspar | Felix | Finn

    I was trying to decide if I wanted Elliott on my list or not and someone suggested to me that you could use Lio/Leo for a nickname. I think it would work if you still really love the nn Leo. Theodore is a great name, I highly recommend it.

    Victor
    Vincent
    Everett
    Abraham
    Gideon
    Jasper

    August
    Alexander
    Frederick
    Oscar
    Edwin
    Oliver
