Non Traditional Boy names. *POLL!* lauren [+2] Due March 14; 2 kids; Georgia 13472 posts

Pick your favorite! My SO has a bad taste in names (some are above). I'm trying to prove to my SO that he should let me name this kid. These are mixed up. A couple are mine, a couple are his. The others are random maybes or middle name choices. I just want to see how they are liked by other people. I mean, it doesn't affect my naming choices so much as it might help me prove to him that he picks bad names. :P

Of that list, I like August and Asher.
It's partly my personal naming style, partly the fact that some of those names are just... no.



Jacoby in particular bothers me.

Thank you. August was another choice of mine.



He picked Jacoby. And I just can't deal with it. It just isn't my taste and I don't think it fits with our other childrens names whatsoever!

Jacoby bothers me, too! I don't know what it is. I like how it's pronounced... maybe it's the spelling??

I know. I don't like boring names. Some classic names I LOVE. (Like Juliet for a girl for example) But you will never find me naming a kid anything like Anne, Sarah, John, William, etc etc.

Have you tried Nymbler? You type in names you like or have already used, and it gives you suggestions based on those.



I get what you mean about fitting with other names, I have a naming style and I want my kids' names to sound good together.

London Elise (girl) and a Dallas Mercer (boy) I'm not really wanting to do the place thing again, it was very accidental the first time, it just so happened to be the name we both agreed on. lol

That's actually how I got my daughters middle name. I liked Emily and it didn't flow with London any way at all... and Elise was on the list. lol

I feel like it's made up. lol. It also seems like one of those names that's cute when they're little, but I can't picture a successful man with the name Jacoby. Kind of like Jase/Jace. It's part of a name, just name your kid Jason. Please. lol.
