I have one son, Benjamin Alexander, and I have a boy due in late June. I love Ben's name, my husband and I completely agreed on it from the start. With this boy, I am really loving either Liam or Henry. My husband is not loving them... So, I am wondering if you guys have any suggestions of just some 'classic' boy names. Not overused or popular, not going to get made fun of for it, just classic. It can really be anything you think of, I really appreciate it. I can't look at that damn baby names book anymore, lol, too many ridiculous names to shuffle though.
I love your son's name. We *almost* named ours Benjamin, and Alexander is on our short list, too. We also like classic names we went with Nathaniel Thomas, and call him Nate.
My son's name is Adam. I really like NOT weird names. I like classic names that aren't over used but also not totally out there.
I have a few suggestions:
Jack(I really like Jack)
Hope I could help!!!
Married with Kid...
Loving my boys!
I love Nathaniel, but I have a nephew named Nathan.
James- This is my best friend's name. I call him Jimmy. I couldn't handle it if my son's nickname was Jim or Jimmy. Lol. Love him dearly, but no.
Anthony- I LOVE it for a middle name. I didn't even think of it, thanks!
Bradley, Thomas, Adam...I feel are all a little too 'common.'
And Jack is my father-in-law's name. I like it, but my husband doesn't really care for his dad too much.
Also, my husband likes the names Vincent and Isaac. I don't mind Isaac, but I'm hesitant on Vincent..What do you think?
I like Issac, but Vincent reminds me of the late 1980s show Beauty & the Beast with Ron Perlman (don't ask me why, lol) or My Cousin Vinny. My ds is named Harrison, which we liked because it was classic & not over-used. Benjamin & Alexander were names we liked as well, but were already 'taken' by friends or family.
Other Boy Names I am in love with right now:
Watch your language
Ask me about INTACTIVISM
I LOVE the name Henry, but can't use it because it is our dogs name lol. I seriously though for a minute about changing the poor dog's name when I found out I was having a boy. If you really love a name that DH doesn't love (and he doesn't have anything that he is set on) you can always try saying it around him a lot to see if he can get used to it!
Otherwise I also like James and Anthony (both vetoed by the DH early on). As far as Issac or Vincent, I like Vincent better than Issac personally. Although, as a teacher, I have had a Vincent that I liked a lot as a kid, so that influences my opinion on the name!
Personally, we are naming our son to be Chase probably, but that is not really a Classic name I guess.
I just love Vincent--probably because it's my favorite uncle's name. My husband and I both agreed we'd like to name our child after him because he's such a great guy and we like the name itself (pleasant sonority, classic and solid connotations) but my husband's last name starts with Vin-- so it doesn't really work for us. Instead, we're naming our boy twin Joseph Daniel, my two brothers' middle names. A few other names we thought about:
William (Liam is a shortened version of it--maybe your husband would agree on William, and you could call him Liam after all!)
I'm not worried about our kids' names being "common" because almost nobody seems to be using the classics anymore. I don't think there will be any other Josephs (or Johns, Vincents, Henrys etc.) in their classes, for example, because everyone else I know of, and everyone in the country according to the statistics bureau, is choosing names that were recently invented, traditional last names recommissioned as first names, Irish names (which I love and have strong family connections to, but don't dare use now), traditional-sounding names creatively spelled... I think any classic name will sound surprising and unique.
Good luck finding a name!
Thanks for all of the suggestions! I really love Matthew, Elliot, and Gabriel. Thanks you guys!
Well, my boys have pretty common names you could say
Jacob (Jake) and Nathaniel (Nate)
I also like Zachary, Hayden, Alec, Tyler, Brandon,
