QotD: Good Boy Names

Question: What are good names for a boy?

My Answer: I like the name Reece. I like the names Aidan Reece, too. I like names that a) can't be abbreviated or shortened (nicknames), b) are somewhat unique (i.e. no "Doug"s), c) don't bring up bad memories of people I've known (impossible for you to know I realize), and d) go well with my last name and the child's middle name.

  2. dude, "The Notion" is kick ass name

    Van Hallen Morrison, St.Ed Stevens

  3. Before we knew the sex of our child, my wife and I thought that if it were going to be a boy we would name him Jackson Tyler.

    Alas, I'm having a girl instead. We've already chosen a great name for her. 🙂

  4. I prefer the old spelling of "Reece" which is "Rhys", i.e. John Rhys Davies. I like the name "Rhys Michael".

  5. I'm a big fan of my name 'Dustin'. It's pretty cool and quite unique. (And I have a sister named Natalie!)

  6. What about: ægir, steingrimur, thor, rawiri or lodewijk-frederick? 😉

  7. Gabe that's too effing weird that my full name is Jackson Tyler Faddis. I was named after Jackson Browne. What was the impetus for Jackson Tyler?

  8. Named my boys Devin Michael and Rory Sheahan. The funny thing with names like that are that people who also have the "unique" names come out of the woodwork. 🙂

    (Right Jackson?)

  9. There are so many names that I like and like you I like the ones that wont have nicknames or it will be hard to find a nickname because that is how my name is for the most part. For a boy I like the name Brice Creighton and Aiden Thomas right now. For a girl I like the names Vaiden Shae and Tyla Renee.

  10. I really like the name Reese/Reece for a girl; however, I absolutely love the name for a boy. Anyone have a preference in the way it's spelled?
