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

Rainier

#15 Baroness Bubbles

I like it :-)

#16 bluedragon

Posted 19 November 2012 - 10:23 PM

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.

#18 romeolima

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 is an awesome name wink.gif

Sorry, don't like either, but Frederick is the better of the two.

#21 Gudrun

Frederick Raine Campbell is good.

Or Rainer Frederick Campbell.

#22 dynamitee

Posted 20 November 2012 - 09:42 PM

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
