Uninspired by boys names


Hi
We are really struggling with boys names it was so easy to pick dd's name. I've looked at the list of boys names and the same names keep coming up. I need some inspiration.
We like old English names not made up names as we are not cool enough to pull of those sorts of names haha
Not short names or names that are overly used. So something a bit different but only because it's old fashioned. Oh and a name thats pretty if that's even possible If any of that makes any sense to anyone...help me!
Otherwise this child shall forever be baby boy.....

We are in the same boat, there isn't a single boy's name that I love. If this baby is a boy his name will be Declan (I believe it's an Irish name?). I liked the name Asher better, but my OH thought it was a "sissy" sounding name so he vetoed it. I hope baby is a girl as I love our girl name pick!

I found my second son's names by reading through THE ENTIRE THREAD of "beautiful boy names" in the Baby Names message boards. Hahaha. At the time, I just had no idea what to name him! I liked NOTHING ... until I found The One. Check it out! A lot of it includes trendy names, but it started so long ago that many of the trends have come and gone already.

I'm having a hard time with boy names too. I have several that I like but two that don't seem to go good together LOL. So I'm in the same boat. I'm like you in that I like old fashioned names rather than made up names and ones that aren't used very often. Unfortunately the name that I'm in love with (Jacob) is very popular here in the US right now and as much as I want to go with it, I'm afraid he'll be the sixth Jacob in his school or something.

Arthurs was ours too but there's lots of Arthurs where I live, may just join the club. George is a nice name too. The book of names makes me laugh theres lots of names in the book but I think they are just made up just to fill the pages. X

We're in the same boat! Naming our DD was easy. Finding a boys name that we like is proving impossible. We've picked out another girls name so hopefully this little one is a girl

I feel you, I've already had 3 boys so I feel like I'm really scraping the barrel now for a cool name

I'm working my way through the a-z list on nameberry. We really struggle with boys names too and want something unusual but not "out there". We have Alistair already, and I'm feeling this baby is a boy too so I'm looking hard. My cousin has just named their boy William.
