I have two grandsons and my daughters has a hard time picking out names too, maybe because they bioth wanted a girl.LOL We went online and searched baby names. We found a list of 5000 names just for boys. Just remember your child will have live with this name for years. I work in an elementary school and children can be cruel to other children with unusual names adn he will have to fill out job applications someday and you want an employer to take him seriously. By the way my grandsons are Nathan and Jayden. Good Luck

I have 3 boys Owen Michael, Elye David and Uriah John. Owen I liked since I was like 15, his middle name Michael is my dads first name. Elye is named after Eli Manning because my husband is a Giants fan, Elyes middle name David is my husbands first name. Uriah is named after Uriah Faber ( ultimate fighter) his middle name John is my husbands dads first name.

i have 2 sons myles anthony and sebastian peter. i have a daughter willow who would have been william if she was a boy. i found that when you hear the right one you will know it. i had a dream about neverending story when i was 6 months with sebastian. fittingly the line that the princess says at the end kept playing over in my mind... what's my name bastian? i woke up and went "that's his name!!" i just knew it.... there are heaps of websites and there is even search engines on births deaths and marriages that will tell you the most popular name for the previous year. if you type baby names into google heaps of sites will come up, and trust me you'll know the right one as soon as you see it.

I really like the names Thomas, Liam, Chandler and Troy.  There are very Masculine names.  I named my son Thomas and of course an very partial to that name, but it really suits him.  Of course now that is is grown up everyone outside of the immediate family call him Tom.  Good luck with the name find!!

There are heaps of baby name books out there just make sure that it cant be shortened into something you dont like, our son is Cooper and we didnt really care if people call him Coop.  A few names - Zachariah, Jordan, Jay, Seth, Kyan, Ethan, Caleb, Austin, Calvin and Harley. Just a couple to look at, its really hard to choose a name so good luck.

Both my boys have family names for their middl names. My 16 month old is Lachlan James John ( Locky) and my 4 month old is Kalan David Saul. Both names i absolutely adore! i wanted Kalan to be Cody but it didnt sound right with our surname.

Firstly choosing your baby's name should mean something to you and your partner, maybe look at family names, but please think carefully and remember your child has to live with that name for the rest of their lives and it has to sit well with your last name.



I have 2 boys Aidan, and Luke John (Luke for ease) we are planning another and have names picked already lol (far to organised I'm not even pregnant yt) we like Cohen or Seth for our boy (determined it will be another boy). I also like Alec, Kai, Bailey, Xander (Zander), Finn/Finley, Oscar and Logan.



If you want something different try typing unusal baby boy names into google, there are hundreds of different sites. Make a list of your favorites and go from there, I know sometimes you pick a name that seems perfect and yt when the child is born they don't look anything like the name you had planned so it goes out the window, so try and leave yourselves with a few names you like. Hope it helps
