      so my wife and i are having our first child. we dont know the sex, but are set with plenty of agreed girl names. we can not agree on ANY boy names. i want something you either never known someone with or very few. i guess abnormal. i need some ideas from you guys, shes getting pissed i dont have anything other than these which are really the only ones i can think of i like.

      I am not up in arms like a lot of people with the new age Hollywood type names, but there is something nice about hearing someone name their kid a solid old school name. A friend of ours thought they were being creative and unique naming their kids Cash and Clavin and then actually got annoyed by it and named the latest Jacob. I hate calling their boy Clavin when he comes over, so I just call him Little C.

      A name I had not heard of, but I do think it's cool is Bishop. My buddy just had a boy and named him that. Not old school and not weird.

      if you keep coming up with crack-induced names like that, you're definitely smoking the crack pipe!

      Give your kid a kre8ive name and they will hate you for it in the long run.

      Try something popular in another country, not so popular here, but still common enough to not be weird. We didn't do that consciously but our kid's name was #1 in the UK in 2011 but in the US:

      2011 78
      2010 88
      2009 98
      2008 118
      2007 140
      2006 173
      2005 209
      2004 229

      We're in the same boat not knowing the sex. We were originally going to go with Carter Jensen. My wife thought Carter was too preppy and I wanted to change the middle name to my dad's late brother's name. Now if it's a boy it's going to be Ethan Phillip.

      We wanted a name you don't hear all the time, but not something so off the wall people couldn't pronounce it.

      If it's a girl, she'll be Charlee Anna

      Edit: looking at the SSA data, apparently Ethan is pretty popular. Oh well.

      We went with Soren Frederick (my first name) Anderson.
      The wife and I are both Scandinavian so it fits. His big sisters name is Sophie Elyse(no meaning, we just liked the sound of it).

      If we had a son we were going to name him after my maternal grandfather: Easten. We had two girls and are done, though.

      Named my son Maddox, cause we thought it was a pretty safe name. Can't believe how much people mess it up and call him Mad Ox. I guess we should have spelled it Maddex for all the idiots out there. I really liked Rhys for a boy, but the wife thought it was a girls name.

      my name is James. not Jim, Jimmy or Jim-bo. James.

      our boy's name is Jackson. we call him Jackson. if... when he is old enough to decide he wants to be called something different like Jack, Jackie or JR... i am still gonna call him Jackson.

      most people get nick names. my name is jason, most people call me jason, my mom always called me J. with name like Jackson, which i love but wife doesnt. Jax is a bad a** nick name.

      looks like we have settled on Brayden anyways. no nick names with that.

      Brayden isn't a bad choice. I've heard it a lot before though. I thought that was one of the things you were leaning against.

      it is, however maybe its because where i live. in my lines of work i meet tons of people. i have never met one, or know someone who named there kid that. so it's rare to me.

      Friends named their daughter Jamison. Initially I thought it was weird, now I like it.

      Carter is more preppy than Ethan? I would think the opposite.

      Once you have a kid you'll see there are a bunch of Braydens and every variation of Aiden.

      I don't know any adults with those names. Now that I have a kid it seems like there are dozens of

      every variation.


      Good luck OP, picking a name is hard.

      We went with Duncan (my grandfather and my middle name) Robert (wife's dad).

      We wanted names with connection to family. I always liked Duncan and he has Robert and all
      its variations to fall back on if he hates it.

      meh.
      had a bad week when i read it and nicknames have always been a bit annoying for me.

      i just dont get the point of picking a name for your kid, then calling them something else.

      if you like the name Jamie, name them Jamie, not James.
      if you dont want a 'formal' name why use one?

      example.
      grandma wanted to name my dad Jack.
      back when my dad was born Jack was actually a nickname for John.
      the hospital tried to put John on the birth certificate.
      grandma raised hell that his name was not John, it was Jack, and they would damn well put Jack on the birth cert... nickname or not...

      Jack was put on the birth cert.

      Good question on how name changing/shortening ever got started.

      I'm a Jacob but have always been called Jake - My parents knew they would call me Jake but went with

      the formal "official" name.

      Oddly, if I shorten or change my 2 year old's name in any way he stops and tells me

      his name is Duncan, he adds the emphasis. He may be sensitive though as his cousin calls him Dunc-a-chunk.

      He'll have to get used to it, I'm sure he's going to be "the donut man" or some variation all through
      school.

      i understand, met few people dont like using shortened names. out of curiosity though, do you call Volkswagen's Volkswagen's? or do you use VW or dub?
