These are our boy names at this stage should number four be a boy (I know these names are not to everyone's taste).

Jasper
Flynn
Emerson
Harper
Remy

What are your thoughts? What do you love /hate?

TIA

Jasper - I like it!
Flynn - okay, doesn't excite me greatly though
Emerson -ok
Harper - too unisex for me
Remy - not that keen on this one, I don't know why but I can't see it growing with a person, iykwim.. I haven't met a Remy so perhaps that's why (did know a lovely Remko though)

I don't understand how occupationals get appointed gender  (What makes Piper femme and Mason exclusively male? Dunno) but just so you know I know like four girls named Harper and as these things go I think of it as a girl's name.

Emerson is the new Addison/Madison for a lot of girls as well, however since they literally mean son-of I wouldn't necessarily abandon ship. I must admit I prefer Emmett (or Emmet) to Emerson though.

I like Jasper and Remy best.

I love Jasper (DS2's MN) and Remi/Remy the best.

Love Remy and Jasper. Especially Remy!

Like Flynn.

Don't mind Harper.

Dislike Emerson.


Not sure what you mean by different.  I wouldn't regard any of these names as 'different' per se.  You've got different styles within them, so maybe some go better with the sibset than others?

Might be "out there" in a different way but I have a soft spot for Emmanuel. It's a bit Euro but so is Remy really. (I don't use that as a big diss)

Jasper is the only one I really really like, the others make me go "meh"

I think Jasper's great and has a very snappy feel to it.

Flynn is also pleasant.

The others aren't so much my style.

Flynn is my fave from your list.

I do really like Remy for a boy (DD3 is Remi, yet I prefer it on a boy).

Jasper is great, Harper not bad, and Emerson is ok.

Congrats on boy #4.  I just found out I'm having girl #4.  

I had Emerson and Remy on my boy list.  Love them.  Remy sounds like a nickname though.  Remington?

Also like Jasper (spelt Jaspurr though) but it's our cats name.

I have a Jasper, his ID twin is Spencer. Their best friend is Harper.

I  really have enjoyed hearing the name Harper this year. It has a soothing gentle feel to it yet some strength somehow.

Jasper - ok
Flynn  - ok
Emerson - is ok  or Emmett or Bennett
Harper - I think more girls are using this one - Harley, Harlow?
Remy - used more for girls,  what about Romeo, Roman or Remington

what are your other boys names

Posted 01 January 2013 - 06:56 PM

I really like Jasper.
Flynn and Emerson are ok.
Remy and Harper don't appeal to me much as boys names

None are my style, but Flynn is by far the best on the list and Harper is by far my least favourite (and it has dropped a lot more in my estimation since hearing  of a Harper NN Harpy the other day).

3 of your names I love BUT 2 of them are what I have on my list of Girls names (Emmerson & Harper). Flynn is a great boys name tho  original.gif Remy is a bit to girly for my liking, it's cute when he is a newborn but not once he is a grown man.

I like Flynn, Remy and Emerson.

I can't warm to Jasper. There's just something that irks me.

The first name to come to mind when reading your list was Reuben.

Emerson is definitely my favourite of your choices.

Jasper is NMS - my mother has a cat called 'jasper', it also reminds me of casper the friendly ghost.

I like Remy, Flynn and Jasper. Not keen on Emerson or Harper.

I love all these names! Particularly Emerson and Remy!

#22 Weirdly Sane

Jasper isn't a favourite of mine; when growing up I had a friend with a snappy little dog named Jasper so that has put me off the name

Flynn - I think this would be my pick of your list but I wouldn't rave about it

Emerson - not bad

Harper - too many little girls have that name, I would not use it

Remy - somehow seems feminine too

How about:
Raphael
Toby
Robson
Jensen
Lars

I absolutely love Remy. Jasper is nice too.

I am not a fan of your others.

I like Flynn best original.gif

Fantastic names!

DD is Harper but I love it for a boy too. Had she been a boy she would have been Nate Emmerson or Jude Emmerson.

Remy is my least fav from your list.

What are your other children's names?
