Hi we have just found out that we are pregnant with a boy. We have a fifteen month old girl named Charlotte Rose and her name was just loved by the both of us. Now whatever I like my partner hates and whatever my partner likes I wouldn't even call a goldfish that and now we are just plain stumped! We have been through name books so many times and ever just pulled names out of magazines and still can't decide! Please how did you decide on your boys names? Any sugestions are welcome!!!!!

Well we chose Kyden Richard James. It was a bit of a battle seeings how we wanted something he couldn't get bugged for in school. If Kyden didn't suit we had Kayden for a backup. A girlfriend of mine liked two names and eventually combined both of them into one for her sons Braylin and Kyten.

Fortunately, unlike some other moms & dads my hubby and I decided really quickly on our son's name ~ Brenden Michael ~ my hubby texted it me one day at his lunch and I loved it and for anyone who knows me...I do not usually agree with anything :)

my sons name is Hayden James i chose james as his middle name as it is my fathers middle name and Hayden i just came across in a book and just loved it for my second pregnancy we had both boy and girl names picked out for a boy we chose Rylan Peter we also liked Kobe we ended up having a baby girl so the boys name are put on hold for the time being.
when trying to decide i wrote down the letters of the alphabet next to each letter i left a gap so we could write in a name for each one then i wrote the middle name i had already chosen along with our last name so i could see the way it looked and then read it out several times it got rid of the names i liked but really didnt go together and it showed us other names we didnt even think of also initials and nicknames which could be horrible for the child later on
hope this help
congratulations on the pregnancy

Me and my partner both loved the name Riley and wen i found out there was no arguement on his name Riley Arthur (both of his granddads names). but if we were ever to have another boy there would be a problem as Riley is the only boys name he likes and wants to name all our boys that lol. I like Kaiden, Kian, Aden and Christian

I'm due in 5 weeks and we have struggled a lot finding a name for our son! We did not agree on ANYTHING and to make it worse my partner has an unusual surname that we need to factor in. We came up with: Zachary Tyler, Cooper Riley & Hayden Jake... we have actually settled on one of these now, but we're keeping it a bit hush-hush at the moment in case we change our minds again :)

That's funny, before I knew our baby was a girl, I too LOVED the name Oliver, but my husband HATED it!!
I have many boy cousins:
Dane, Jonah, Nathan, Konrad, Emmett, Lee Michael, Xander, Brady, Cooper, Jakob, Aiden, Cash.
At a daycare I worked at there was: Gunner, Victor, Payton, Christian, Jackson, Parker, Tucker...
P.S. I love the name Levi! (It would've been mine had I been a boy!)

Quoting Jamie:

I named my son Evan Matthew. I thought about him learning how to spell his name and I didn't want it to be too difficult or have other kids make fun of his name when he got older. I also liked Liam, Nathan, Ethan, Aiden, and Wyatt.


this is a good point i saw many kids in my son's preschool class having a hard time writting their names becuase you have to write the name on your birth certificate no shorten forms and those names can be huge and spelled all funky... luckily for my son his name is Alex nice short and strong

My wee man is Liam. I had picked out heaps of names that my husband had said no to - such as Jai, Holden, Kayden, Kyrus, Kyree, Curtis, Maddox, Orin, Jovaan, Mekiele, Ryder, Carlen, Cody - oh the list could go on!!!!!

[deleted account]

Well I have 2 girls but both times I was pregnant I could only think of boys names. My favorite both times were Jaden Nathaniel, of course Jaden can be spelled however you like of course. That name just seems to roll of the tongue for me..hope this helps.

What I did was take names from my son's father's side of the family. I see it as a boy should have names/name from his father's family, it's a tradition thing!

i found name books too hard so just watched credits for fav shows with my second (Lachlan) first child my other half came up with it (Brayden) and it was the only boys name we had! I think it's sometimes what suits them when they are born too! I liked Lachlan but had other names I liked more but when he was born we said he was definatelly a lachlan!!!!!

Well my partner and I came up with Brock if our baby was a boy, but she was a girl so now we have 3 girls. Damn. But I like Seth and Sathe just cause they are different but my partner didn't like them. My nephews names are Jordan, Caleb, Izak, Xander, Deegan, Lochlan, Dylan, Dominick, Gage, Braith. I have 2 brothers who are Brendan and Kynan, and 2 step sons who are Dion and Dre. Then some other close family members are Guy, John, Terry, Robert, Peter, Anthony, Andrew, Paul, Justin, Scott Dale, Jamie, Mitchel, Braedon, Jack. There are alot of males in my family (so as you can tell there are alot of names I can't use) and I hope you can both decide on a name soon. Don't know whether this has helped but there are a few more names for you to have a look at. Good luck and let us know what you's decide.

Thanks for all of you help we are still looking. My top name was Oliver but my partner hated it. I have always loved Riley but my partner hated it so much he named our daughters puppy Riley so I couldn't considered it for his son. We made a list of around 20 names we would consider and so far only two match -



Levi and Beau



We had Beau chosen incase our first born was a son but for some reason this time it doesn't appeal to me as much now. We are still looking in case that perfect name pops out at us. We are very grateful for all the suggestions as some of them we haven't heard of before and outside input is always refreshing! What ever else you hear or think of send it our way - we may still have 4 months to go but I have to be organised and prepared so I am stressing!!



Thanks again and I will keep you all posted if we ever make a final decision!!!

Justice
Joss
Elielle
Vlad
Christian

Good luck with your little one and congrats!

how about Eli? one of my girlfriends has just called her newborn boy that and its perfect for him, or how about Kaleb? Nathan?

my sons name is Jake Raymond. Jake - his daddy chose, and Raymond - is my grandfathers middle name, my grand father passed away a month before Jake was born so we changed his middle name from Ryan to Raymond

We named our first boy, Xavier Len and our second Balian Rai. It was a tough decision indeed to pick a boy name. We agreed on a girl name quite quickly and are keeping it in case this pregnancy turns out to be a girl. If it's a boy we have no clue yet lol. We like Logan, Seth and Dorian.

I have too boys and agrre with previuos reply it is definatly harder for boys names We decided by the flip of a coin for our first it was between Dylan and Ryan we flipped the coin which told us ryan and both looked at each other and said Dylan so Dylan Glen Barrie it was!(middle names were his grandfathers names) With our second son i listed off heaps of Names such as Adam and Jacob none of which my huby liked but we finally came to Reagan Jack Allan (Middle Names my Close Great Grandfather and My husbands Name) Through both those pregnancies we had a girls name from day 1 and still do incase we need it in the future.Good luck You will find one eventually and no matter what it is when your son arrives it willl be perfect and You will love it as it's the name you gave your darling son.

My son is Kanaan Anthony, and I used random authors that I saw on different books that people had in my government class one day because I couldn't decide on a name! Some of my other choices were Flynn, Keeton, Braedon, and Brandt. Good Luck!!

I've always like Josiah. It is a powerful name . And u can call him JO JO for short and it will still sound cute. Plus Josiah was one of the few good kings of Isreal. I love that name if I ever have another kid (hopefully no time soon lol) if it;s a boy I'm going to choose Josiah it just rolls of the tougne perfectly! hope you have luck in finding a name.

We actually used film and tv credits to help us. We just couldn't think of any names ourselves and we saw jacob on some film credits. After a lengthy debate between me and my husband we finally choose to call our son Jake. We thought we would never use his full name anyway and his friends would probably call him Jake or J anyway.



Good luck with choosing a name. For us it was one of the toughtest decisions we'd ever made x
