I think we've finally decided on a boys name, just want opinions: Raine Frederick Campbell

sorry, it's nms, I love Frederick, but really dislike Raine

NMS either. Frederick is a great middle name though! Good luck!

Raine was the name of Princess Diana's wicked stepmother. I've always thought of Raine as being a girl's name. But I do like Frederick and Campbell.

Thought Raine was a girls name? Love Frederick though original.gif

Would you consider switching the order?

Also thought Raine was a girl's name.

Love the order switched though.

I'd say Rayne looks more like a boy's name than Raine.

Sorry, I also see Raine as feminine.

Plain old Rain, though NMS, would work better IMO.

I have both Rain and Raina on my list for a girl: general opinion was Rain looked a bit boyish and several people recommended I might want to spell it Raine as that was "more feminine" -  which I don't quite get but there you are.

Rainier (ray-NEAR) is kind of cool for a boy but I don't know if its your style.

Frederick is lovely. Raine is not.

Sorry don't like Raine, but Frederick is nice.

I always imagined Raine as a girls name.

First name I really dislike. (Sorry OP  ph34r.gif)

Second name is ok. NMS but nothing wrong with it.

Campbell; is this a second middle name or a last name? If it's a second middle name it too is really nms. As a QLD'er my first thought is Campbell Newman and I despise that bloke like you wouldn't believe.

Raine sounds "unfinished" to me .... Maybe because my husbands name is Rainer?

sorry I dont like Raine either

what about


#15 Baroness Bubbles

I like it :-)

Sorry OP I don't like it either.

Rain is ok for a girl, but I just don't get the Raine spelling. I don't see a reason why Rain can't be a unisex name but it depends if you want your son to be the trailblazer or not!

I like Frederick, not sure if Campbell is a surname or extra middle name, it's NMS as a given name but perfectly fine.

Not a huge fan of Raine Frederick.  Prefer Rainier Frederick.  Just sounds better to me.

I like it, I have never heard a girl called Raine but I have heard of a couple of boys. guess it just depends what part of the country you are in

Frederick Raine Campbell is good.

Or Rainer Frederick Campbell.

I actually like the name Rain (however you choose to spell it).  Reminds me of the actor Rainn Wilson.

#23 kerilyntaryn

Posted 21 November 2012 - 12:14 AM

something similar sounding would be Ryan Frederick

or Rayan, rayhan, Rey, Reynaldo/Renaldo, Rohan, Ronan, Rayden, Rafe/Raphael, reynard, reynold
