These are our boy names at this stage should number four be a boy (I know these names are not to everyone's taste).
What are your thoughts? What do you love /hate?

Jasper - I like it!
Flynn - okay, doesn't excite me greatly though
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!
Don't mind Harper.
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.

I really like Jasper
Posted 01 January 2013 - 04:53 PM
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

Love Flynn, jasper and Harper.
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
Posted 01 January 2013 - 08:01 PM
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
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.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 09:43 AM
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.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 09:54 AM
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.
Posted 02 January 2013 - 10:08 AM
I love all these names! Particularly Emerson and Remy!
Posted 02 January 2013 - 10:09 AM
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
Posted 02 January 2013 - 10:31 AM
I absolutely love Remy. Jasper is nice too.
I am not a fan of your others.
Posted 03 January 2013 - 01:55 PM
I like Flynn best
Posted 03 January 2013 - 02:05 PM
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.
