Hi everyone,

Im after you opinion on boys names, this is our second son, our 1st son is BILLY PAUL

I really like names that you dont hear too often but not too different.
I like names like:

RYDER

DAYNE

MARLEY

my husband loves ABEL but I just cant seem to get my head around it.... what do you think and are there any other name suggestions? biggrin.gif

From your list I like Dayne, but probably prefer it spelled Dane.

Ryder is nms. Marley reminds me of the dog.

Other suggestions:

Owen
Tate
Rhett
Elliott

I like Abel the best but I don't think it goes that well with Billy.  

My pick of your options is Marley, but the others would be fine too. Prefer the Dane spelling.

Marley Dane makes a good combo.

Thanks for your opinions.

Not sure Elliot goes with Billy LOL (BILLY ELLIOT)

I forgot to mention middle name will be Allen after my dad.
Its so hard picking names.....

With Allen as MN I would choose Dane, maybe Ryder.  Both Marley and Abel are 'awkward' with MN Allen.


Or go Allen Ryder or Allen Dane, known as the MN.

I like Abel but not with Allen as a middle name.
Ryder Allen sounds good original.gif

Abel is the only one of the mentioned names I like, if I had to choose one of the others it would be Marley.

I heard an interesting name yesterday - Rafferty, Raff for short. My DH vetoed it straight away sadly... X

Harvey?

Marley is probably my favourite, I think its such a cool name, but I worry about people thinking its a dogs name unsure.gif
Rafferty is really cool, however we have a long last name and it will be too much of a mouth full.
Im surprised about how many people actually like Abel, my husband totally loves the name.

Please help guys.... still after a boys name.
To go with his brother Billy.
Middle name will be Allen (after my dad) Surname is 3 syllables starting with G, So its quiet long and ends in "ON" So names like Hayden, mason, kayden etc... just dont go. I dont want a name that is really common either.

If you have a Billy stay away from Dayne. Reminds me of the actor Billy Zane who has over plucked lady eyebrows.

I definitely like Abel the best of those. Not ideal with Allen though.

I would have thought Dayne and Marley were girls.

Other ideas:
Micah
Max
Michael - I like Mick and Mike as NNs.
Miles
Bram
Abram, Amos, Ambrose, Asa (still not perfect with Allen but at least don't have their own l's too like Abel Allen)
Reuben
Ronan
Rowan
Rhett
Declan
Dashiell
Dean
Dan
Damon
Dylan
Daniel
