    Softer names

    What are some names you generally think of as "softer" boy names? I tend to be drawn to boy names that aren't things like Gunnar, Hunter, Harley, etc.


    For example, I think of these as having softer sounds:
    Asher
    Rhys
    Julian/Julien
    Luca
    Finn
    Christian
    Noah

    Lucius (loo-shus)
    Cassius (cash-us) - a soft sound, but the Ali connection gives it an interesting contrasting fierce image. I like it for that balance.

    Lemuel & Kemuel
    Micah
    Owen
    Joshua
    Forest
    Gershon, Gilead, Gideon
    Amos
    Asa

    Ahh, I love the softer names, too!

    Some of my favorites:

    Caleb
    Everett
    Asher
    Jack (not quite so soft, but I think it can be)
    Brody
    Rowan
    Leo
    Bailey
    Avery
    Valerian/Aurelian/Florian (almost too feminine, though, maybe?)
    Henry
    Emmett
    Callum
    Sebastian (some stronger sounds, but it really has a softer image to me)
    Lyndon/Linden
    August

    I like the suggestions of Micah, Joshua, and Owen, too. And I love Asher, Rhys, and Noah (and even Julian) on your own list.

    Good luck!
