    I am of the total opposite opinion when it comes to boy names. It's easy for me to find one that I love! Are you just super picky and have a strict criteria to adhere to? That can kill pretty much any enthusiasm for naming. I don't know what your style is, but I love boy's names that are historical and maybe mythic, that would smell like a mixture of sandal wood, cinnamon and cloves (if they were scents.) You just have to find names that make associations you fall for. Names can conjur up so many images. Find a "type" to be passionate about!

    I suggest you read a few books about Boys. See if any of their names spark your creativity. Learn about the people behind the name, idk maybe that will help!

    I didn't love any boys names (except Charlie and Finn) then I read Divergent and I didn't love the character Caleb, but I felt Beatrice / Tris's love for him and fell in love with his name instead of his character. Now, Caleb is probably my #1 boys name.

    Beatrice Flora Jane, Clara Felicity Kate, Rosalie Linnea Tess, Alexa Coralie Eve, Emmeline Alaska Sophie,
    Charlie Jay, Gideon Bruce, Henry Liam

    Also searching for ways to include:
    Adeline, Avalon, Eliza, Greta, Imogen, Isla, Leora, & Winnie.
    Asher, Caleb, Edwin, Felix, Grant, Hugo, Lachlan, Ronan, Rhett, & Wyatt.

    My advice is to project ideas or visions you have about what kind of a boy and man you'd like a son of yours to be. This may help to steer you in the right direction.
