    Help with my top 10 name choices

    Hi, I've been looking around in the forums for a while now but now that it's getting close to my baby boy's due date, I thought I'd get some help with my top 10. A lot of the names on my list are names I've seen on this forum since this is where I've been looking for names. Any suggestions, opinions, or advice I could get on my list would be appreciated. Thanks!

    These aren't in any particular order, just names I'm thinking of.

    Mateo- I've liked Matthew for a while but I've liked this variation more since I heard of it.
    Nolan- It seems very friendly, I love the meaning (champion)
    Percy- Loved this for a while, but it seems like most people associate it with Percy Jackson now. I don't think that's a bad association though...
    Oscar- Seen it a lot on the forums. I love the sound and it's a name that will age well.
    Johannes- Saw this one on the forum. It's unique but it's cute and has nickname potential.
    Knowlton- Don't remember where I saw this one but I love the look and sound of it.
    Rex- It's nice, modern but works for a little boy and an adult.
    Parker- Saw this one on the forum and just fell in love with it.
    George- Classic, known, but not too overused (at least where we live it isn't, not sure about other places)
    Jack- Simple and classic

    Hi there.

    Here are my thoughts on your list:


    Mateo-I think that this is really nice. I kind of think that it may work better w/some sort of Italian heritage, but probably not a deal breaker. It's charming, masculine but not too rugged sounding.

    Nolan- I love it! It's on the top of my boy list too. It is very friendly & sporty.

    Percy- I think that this is cute, but it's a little too cute. I prefer it as a nn for Percival, but I'm not sure that that really holds up on a grown man super well either. I'm not sure that Percy Jackson is all that popular that it's influencing the popularity of this name that much.

    Oscar- I like this one a lot. It's masculine & classic, but kind of quirky. I don't care for the nns really.

    Johannes- It's not a name that I really ever think about, but it's kind of cool. It is unique yet fairly recognizable.

    Knowlton- It's different. It kind of reminds me of Nick Noltie for some reason...Maybe better as a mn.

    Rex- This is cool. I agree that it's cute for a spunky little guy, but handsome on a grown man.

    Parker- I don't personally love it or hate it. It just doesn't do much for me, but it's not offensive.

    George- It's nice. Sort of popular in my area (midwest U.S.), but not bad. It is a classic.

    Jack- This is also common, but I love it. It's very dashing & boysih

    Hope this helps.

    Oscar seems like a great choice for you! It's classic, cute and friendly, but not overly popular (depending on where you live).

    I like your whole list, except for Knowlton. Nolan is much cuter and more familiar.

    My faves ranked:
    Rex
    Oscar
    Percy
    George
    Jack
    Nolan
    Mateo
    Parker
    Johannes

    Nolan actually makes a great middle name for most of these.

    I'm curious how you would rank them yourself! From how you describe them, you seem to love Percy and Parker best.

    Mateo is cool and it has a nice, cheery vibe

    Nolan -nice sounds, sturdy but fresh

    Percy -one of my absolute faves! Light, literary and sweet

    Oscar-cute, versatile though fairly popular if that bothers you

    Johannes - nms but it's strong and intersting

    Knowlton -looks and feels slightly awkward, sorry. Paxton, Colton, Noel, Lawson and Knox as alternatives?

    Rex - I like it Lively and fun

    George -love it! Warm and cosy

    Parker-cool and fresh!

    Jack - safe, sweet but a little boring to me as I know so many

    I love Percy, Oscar, Johannes and Rex!
    Percy - Cute and fun! Yes the Percy Jackson association exists but more and more boys are being named Percy nowadays and I doubt when he's older anyone will think it's weird. This is my top choice.
    Oscar - Love the Oscar Wilde connection. It's a really handsome choice with the cute nickname Ozzie.
    Johannes - Classic and unexpected! I knew a Johannes who went by Hannes and though it was so cool.
    Rex - Vintage, handsome and rugged. Love it.
