    Need Help w/ Boy Combos -Long List

    Hey everyone! After focusing more on girls' names for far too long, I figured it was finally time I come over to the boys' side. Just for fun. Historically I have been very picky when it comes to male names, never liking more than a few at a time, accompanied by feelings of "meh". Until I realized why I felt comparatively dispassionate: I was not viewing boy and girl names the same way. Instead I was unhappily under the impression that boys needed more "grounded" and traditional names that wouldn't get them teased. All while I crushed over fanciful and unusual names for girls. Then more recently while purusing the SSA chart, it struck me how many popular boys' names were rather inventive and not particularly classic at all. It caused me to consider how dated this notion was, and inspired me to be a little more creative. Now I do not mean this to be a feminist rant or anything, simply a bit of background.

    Upon trying to expand my list, I've identified a few key styles: Nature inspired, unisex, and longer romantic names. A little bit Western, a little European, a little Steampunk, a little hippie. When it comes to my taste in about anything, I'm very into the idea of balancing hard and soft, and here, pairing an edgier name with one a little bit less so. I've decided I quite like the versatility of a second middle name, and still feel I can get a more "out there" than with what is up front. I don't mind when sounds repeat or meld together. Unfortunately, thanks to a bit of a childhood speech issue I never fully got over, there are a lot of great names that seem nice in theory, but are awkward for me to say aloud.

    If anyone cares to, I'd love some combo suggestions, as I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Here's a few I have come up with:

    Rowan Octavius Wolf
    Wiley Alonzo Blaise
    Jem Iagan Laredo

    I have starred my favorites, and double starred what I like most as first names. But anything is fair game.
