    Tide for a boy?

    We have three sons (Wild, Drum and Baird) and are expecting boy #4 in December.
    I really love the name Tide... We're in the UK so we don't have the detergent, but is that the first thing that springs to mind elsewhere?
    Appreciate your thoughts...
    (Also, as a mother of boys, I'm thinking maybe the name might encourage him to do laundry )

    I admit, but the title alone I thought of the laundry soap.

    It fits style-wise with your sons, but I think you could find something similar:

    Calder
    Kai
    Lake
    Thames
    Fisher
    Cove
    Beck
    Coburn
    Bjorn Knox
    Jasper Lorenz
    Dane Sylvan
    Titus Andrew
    Jonah Oliver
    Arlo Maxim

    Seren Juniper Snow
    Celia Rosemary Jane
    Esme Opal Belle
    Signe Hazel
    Cleo Simone
    Arabella Wren

    I absolutely love your children's names!! So unique. I'm from the UK and I instantly just thought of the ocean. I think it's a fantastic name it goes very well with his siblings.

    I'm in the US and the first thing I thought was Tide Pods, so not the best association. However if you're in the UK and don't have that detergent you should be good!! I also like a PP's suggestion of Cove.

    In the US the detergent came to my mind right away.
    If it's really not an issue for you at all, it seems right on the mark with your other boys.
    If you think it's an issue if he'd wind up in the States, there are lots of other names that can strike the same chord without the same association.

    Yup I looked at the title and thought oh noo that kid would get so many laundry jokes! I'm in US, if that's not the association in the UK then it's fine and goes great with your other boys names.

    I'm in the UK too, and the first thing I thought of was the detergent; I think many people probably will. The right person could also pull it off as an offbeat nature name, and then it would fit right in with your other sons' names.

    I do live in the US and the detergent/Tide pod memes came to mind when I read the title... It does sound pretty cool though. Maybe you'd also like Wade or Cove!
