Help me get excited about boys’ names!
I’m in the very early stages (~8 wks) of being pregnant with my 3rd, and no matter what, I just can’t get exited about boys’ names. My two children are J@c0b and H3l3n@. I’d need a name that works well internationally and does not end in an s-sound (so no -x or -z either), as the baby’s surname will start with an S. If possible, I’d like it to start with a different initial than J or H, but that’s not a dealbreaker.
Names I love but cannot use: Philip, Gabriel, Alexander, Lucas
Nymbler just keeps suggesting Oliver, Benjamin and Noah over and over again, lol. Too bad I’m not interested in any of those (though DH just told me he likes Benjamin). I do like Benedict, but Ben is so ubiquitous where we are that I’m not sure I’d dare to use Benedict.
So far I’ve come up with Simon, but while that name works, I think I’m just okay with it. J@c0b is actually not a name I would have chosen before I met my husband, but it’s a meaningful family name for both of us and it’s perfect for my son (and it’s never been a no. 1 name where we live, so that helps). I do love his middle name, J0@ch!m.
