Boy Names: The new traditionals

a Name Sage post by: Abby View all Name Sage posts

He says “strong traditional.” She says “unique.” Where’s the middle ground for naming a son?

Kelly writes:

My husband and I can’t agree on a boy’s name. Our daughters are Mischa and Nova. He wants a “strong traditional” boy name, but I like unique and I don’t think any traditional names work with our girls’ names.

We originally liked Theodore and calling him Theo, but now they are popping up everywhere. Another idea we had was Wellington and calling him Wells. However, a recent Bachelorette contestant was Wells, so my husband says that’s out. We also liked Lincoln and calling him Link, but his cousin just named his son that.

Any ideas? Maybe a traditional long name with a non-traditional short name?

Fresh Surname Names for Girls

a Name Sage post by: Abby View all Name Sage posts

They love surname names, but can’t agree on the right one for their December daughter.

Erin writes:

We are expecting a little girl in December. We have two boys, Paxton David and Crosby Jordan.

We like surnames as first names, as you can see. For a girl, I like Emerson, Sawyer, and Greer.

My husband nixed Emerson, knows a family with a girl Sawyer, and is unsure of Greer.

His favorite is Davis. I don’t know if I’m 100% on board with Davis. What are your thoughts?

unusual boy name

Her husband is wild about Harry in the middle spot, but they’re struggling to agree on a first name if baby number three is a boy.

Emma writes:

We are expecting baby number three and are stuck for a name if the baby is a boy.

Our first child is a girl named Sage India, and our second is a boy, Rocco Finn.

I am trying to find something that matches with these and I like slightly unique names.

My husband would like the baby if a boy to have the middle name Harry so something that goes with that too would be great!

Top of my list for boys are Brewer or Fox. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
