Hi Guys!!! My hubby and I are having the hardest time thinking of a boys name. We love the common, but not so common names. One you would be able to find on a keychain, but is not played out. We have a daughter named Brooke and it fits her perfectly. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!! Thank you all in advance!!

Best way I went about geting my kids name was by picking names that had meaning to me & my family. I couldn't pick better names for my kids. My oldest is Shawn Mark. He is named after my 2 older brothers. Shawn was the one who took care of me & has always been there when my mom lost it when my other brother Mark passed away. Got Mark from my oldest brother who passed way. He was just an really great guy would loved life and everyone he meet. His out look on life was the best. So I gave my Oldest their name hopin he would kind be like them in a way. & i see them in him. I got my youngest son name from my hubby Nephew who passed away when he was 14. His Name Jacob. But N-E-Ways best way I can put it is come up with some u like and u know is right for u

Hi there, I have 2 boys..Darian Matthew Samuel, and Keegan Garry Edwin, their names are pretty unique as for their middle names are after family members, but if your anything like most mothers, you will go through name after name and you won't be quite sure until you hold your son for the first time and your like THIS name will fit him perfectly, Darian was actually supossed to be Dorian until i saw him and I was like..he dont LOOK like a Dorian..LOL..so it was a name change right on the spot..GOOD LUCK!!

We have two boys and we think their names are nice ones. Miles and Christian. We had London picked out for a girl, but it also works for a boy. So what about London?

I have an Elijah (does not answer to Eli) and an Ezekiel, a lot of people are trying to call him Zeke but I want his nickname to be Kiel. I once saw a store clerk named Kiel and he was pretty cute!

It really depends on what type of name you are looking for whether you want something traditional or if you would rather have something unique for your little man. I really like the name Jack. John is a family name, and Jack is a variation of that.

My son's name is Tyler. You could do Ty for short. I love it. It's common, but not too common; he will probably be the only Tyler in his class.... you know?

We had a tough time with a boy name too. I LOVE Jake and Derek. My hubby says NOPE! We decided on Gabriel (my hubbys name - but I DID NOT want a Jr) Quincey. We planned on calling him GQ...but we basically call him Q. We also liked Harrison, Mateo, & Keanu. I thinkit would have been Keanu and Q if twin boys.

I have always liked the name Troy Allen for a boys name. when my husband and I were still together we had 3 children and the first 2 their names started with the letter T so when our third came along he said we have enough T;s in the family so I didn't get to sue the third name but we named him Richard Matthew and we call him Ricky and it fits him. other names I like are Michael,Jarrod, Travis,Anthony,Shad,Markkus, good luck

I don't have a specific suggestion, but we picked both Swedish and Latvian names (we have some of these countries in our background/hertitage) and picked from those lists. At least that narrowed it down for us! Often, they are different versions of familiar names...like you said, not too common but not too different. (We ended up with Nikos (Nick) and Maksis (Max)) ...

I love the name Novak, but I think it sounds better as a middle name. How about: Ayden James, Austin Terrell, Adam Joseph, Edward Fred, Edward Azure, Fred Novak, Richard Mack, Avery Earl, Aaron Thomas, Richard Joe, Joshua Howard, Harry, Patrick David... (Can you tell I'm rattling off friend & family names? LOL) Best of luck with naming your son.
