    Super name!

    I absolutely love the name Alaric. Sounds intellectual but zesty, with a wicked sense of humor.

    And not so far from Alec as to seem bizarre or ugly.

    Go for it!

    I think it's cool as a whole, but I really dislike "Al" and I'm not very excited about "Ric" either so it's a no go for me.

    I actually really like Emeric though. It's a Harry Potter name, and I've liked Emery for a while but found it a bit feminine. I really enjoy Emeric.

    Out of curiosity, how are you pronouncing it? al-AR-ic or al-ah-ric? I like both (though naturally say the first), just curious
    AL-ə-rik is the correct pronunciation. I secretly love the wrong one ə-LAR-ik though. If I was to use it in the first name spot I would use the correct one.

    Alaric James | Theodore ?

    Thoughts in this thread? I'll return the favor.

    I love it, but sometimes I wonder how usable it is? It's not that it's unusable--I think it's just that it has 3 syllables and I feel like someone is bound to shorten it sometime, and I don't really care for Al, Larry, Ari, or Eric/Rick/Ricky. Ari is the best, but I much prefer it for a girl. Embarrassingly, I sort of love Ally (Allie?) for a boy, but I think my family would decapitate me if I actually referred to my son as Allie, haha. Besides, James Alaric is handsome beyond words! But I could get behind it if you had an uber awesome combo. And nickname.

    I love Alaric! I say it like uh-LAR-ic but AL-uh-ric sounds great too. I get a medieval, knight-in-shining-armour vibe, who'll fight to defend other people when necessary but is gentle and kind by nature.
