Hey everyone!

My husband and I are expecting our 2nd child in May. We are pretty much almost set on a name if its a girl, but we are having such a hard time coming up with boy names. I really like unique names, something you don't hear a lot of. Our daughter's name is Summer (a name you don't hear too much)

If you ladies could help us out we'd appreciate it! :)

Thanks

Hi! My hubby and I named our son Javan (we pronounce it like Jayven), I'd say it is pretty unique as we had never heard of it before. We found it in the Bible, a grandson of Noah. We love the name, if you like it feel free to use it! Another name that I love is Jordan, a more common name but still a good one. :)

First of all, congratulations!!!! My youngest is a May baby. :]

My two boy's names are Quarion Loki Orion, and Leif Gideon. Quarion we took from a book, but I desperately wanted to name him Orion (as in the constellation). Turns out Loki is his temperal god. Hes the troublemaker incarnate. haha.

For Leif, we chose it because it was a soft name and Gideon as a strong middle name to balance it.

If you want balance in the boys name you can do it the way I did.

Just a warning advice, dont give your son the middle name Loki. You'll regret it in the longrun. :]

Good luck! :]

I also like different spellings of common names. My daughter's name is Xienne (Xien if she were a boy) which is pronounced Zi-on. My best friend's name is Diron (Di-Ron) and his friend Mykiel (Michael). Good Luck!!

Quoting Arianna:

Levithan [levi for short] is an amazing name, i LOVE it but my boyfriend is not so sure about. a few other names are Grayson and Trently, all are unique and rarely if ever heard. We are having a hard time with name as well, especially because we don't know what we are having. Hope this helps, let us know what you choose and Congrats!



My son is called Levi, he is now almost 6 years old and I have never met another Levi yet... although everyone thinks he is named after the Jeans (Levi is actually in the bible) if we ever have another boy he will be called Leonardo (leo for short) and then after that we have Lochlan and Lomond...

Our son's name is Zayin. It's the 7th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet. It has some pretty awesome meanings.

A Cute name is Campbell, or Xavier, Kai. Just some ideas. Or go back to the old fashioned names that are starting to come back but they are still unique

My husband has a very Irish name Kyran, it is traditionally spelt Kieran. We live in Arizona and have never came across another person with the same name. But he is from New York and his mom said that it is a little more common there.
