    ve recently changed my mind about a name i was fixed on for my little boy (which we had chosen at 5 months pregnant).
    ive got a good reason for this but FOB isnt happy and is refusing to even help me choose other names. so im trying to get on with it on my own.
    anyway- im spiritual and love the names River and Phoenix. (was also a fan of the actor)
    i know all that should matter is that i like the name but i just wanted some honest opinions on whether or not these names could work.
    i realise there will be people who dont like them but any opinions would be welcome. have also done a poll to see which u prefer between the two names?
    thanks in advance!

    I have debated about Phoenix as a boys middle name. I really like both, but chose River. I think River is a strong, powerful boy name.

    I like River, I knew a boy with that name and it fit him well. And his friends called him "Riv" which I thought was cute

    Im a massive fan of River Phoenix too but my OH wont hear anything about River anywhere in the name (he even shot down Rio).
    I do love the name River though

    neither for me, I am afraid. If I had to choose I would say River sounds more boyish.

    I like River alot for a boy. I'm not crazy about it when I think of it referring to a little boy, but I knew a guy in his 20's named River and I thought it was a really strong, sexy name. I'm kinda neutral on Phoenix... don't love it don't hate it.
