Back again, this time it's for real
Want some opinions of the boys names DH & I have in mind (but not 100% on) and suggestions if you have any please.
Boyd Hendrix, which I like, but then I don't, but then I do lol
and DH keeps suggesting Peyton, which I don't hate, but I'm having issues with it being a very American name & also I see it more on a girl? Combo will be Peyton Ben.

I think Hendrix is a great middle name, it grabs me for some reason. Boyd I know someone with this as their surname, but there are plenty of surnames that are first names so don't let that stop you.
I also know two Peytons in real life - a 17 year old boy and a 5 year old girl. I think it can be either although I'm not sure of its origin.
Edit - we are due a few days apart!

I like your suggestions but your combos sound jarring to me for some reason...seperately they're great but together they sound a bit strange?
However, I think Peyton Hendrix is an awesome combo (for some reason, i feel it sounds better having a 2 syllable name before hendrix...idkw?!).
Still like Boyd, but again, sounds jarring hearing 'boyd hendrix' as well as 'peyton ben'... maybe 'peyton benjamin' is better?
What do i know The names are still cool

Peyton is #53 in the US for girls. #166 for boys though. So still used. And fairly popular either way.
Paxton is at #273 for boys (in America) and not ranked at all for girls?
I like Hendrix. But Boyd sounds funny to me, could be an accent thing.

I heard such a gorgeous name last week that I'd never heard before.
Matteo. I adore it

Boyd Hendrix - sounds ok
Peyton Ben - would be ok
these are 5 letter, 2 syllables to match your other boys
some others 1 syllable

Boyd I'm not too keen on, but I love Bede.

I like Peyton Hendrix better than Boyd Hendrix for some reason.
Some other names for you to consider :
Corey / Cory

I quite like Boyd, it's growing on me.
Really really (x1000) dislike both Peyton and Hendrix.
Boyd Benjamin would be gorgeous.

Oooh, I love Hendrix. I'd have that as the first name. Hendrix Boyd.

Peyton and Hendrix sound like something from Home and Away and Peyton really screams out girl to me. Would not normally be a fan of Boyd but we know a really nice guy named Boyd so I would say use it and hope some of the niceness goes with the name.

I really dislike Payton, sounds very very American to me and the ones I've known have all been girls, didn't even know it was unisex. Also sounds weird with Ben as a middle name, might be the two 'n' sounds at the end.
Hendrix is an awesome middle name! Not so sure about Boyd, just isn't in the same league or something. Really like PPs suggestions of Bede and Matteo.

I agree with you on Peyton- to me it seems like a girls name.
I feel Boyd lacks character.
I've always loved the name Flynn but I'm pregnant with my third (and last) girl so I won't ever get to use it!
We would have called our son Flynn Joshua after my son Joshua that passed away.
