Help Me Choose!


FYI I like very unique names, and am not interested in anything more common (my first sons name is not in the top 2000).

We are trying to decide a boy name (girl name is already chosen) and have narrowed it down to three choices:

(In order of most to least popular in the North America)

1. Apollo Joseph
2. Wilder Joseph
3. Hollis Joseph (not in top 1000)

I love all of these names, so you don't need to tell me how much you hate them, as it won't change my mind.

The problem is, my husband and I like them pretty much equally, so I was hoping to hear from other people which they like best.

I like them all. I think Wilder Joseph is slightly awkward together. But not in a outputting way, just a chunky flow compared to the other two.

Is Hollis traditionally a boy's name? The only one I know is a woman.

Anyway you decide I think it will be a good strong name.

Thanks for your input everyone! I suppose it's more important that they all flow with our surname, which is Elliott; I do agree that Wilder Joseph is the least nice sounding of the 3 in terms of flow.

The problem is, my favourite is Apollo Joseph Elliott, and my husband's is Hollis Joseph Elliott. And then we both equally like Wilder Joseph Elliott as a solid second place haha.

So torn!

It's so hard isn't it!!

I'm intrigued to know what your girls choices are btw as your boys names are really unique, lovely names.

Both Apollo and Hollis sound good with your surname so I can understand the dilemma!

I think I'm still liking Apollo more, but it's like a 55/45 split 😂 no help am I!

I told my husband that people seem to really like Apollo in the hopes of swaying him haha. Choosing a name is so hard; and I'm not a person that wants to choose after the baby is born.

And I've always wanted the same name for my girl every since I was quite young, so that's the name we are going with (we only have the one).

If we have a girl her name will be 'Arrietty Anne Elliott'

Ooo I love your girls choice! Again, not a name I've heard of but it flows very well.

I'm the same, I can't wait til their here I have to know what their name is ready! I struggle to feel connected to be honest until I know gender and have a name!
