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:
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?
Posted 24 January 2013 - 11:02 AM
From your list I like Dayne, but probably prefer it spelled Dane.
Ryder is nms. Marley reminds me of the dog.

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

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

Marley is probably my favourite, I think its such a cool name, but I worry about people thinking its a dogs name
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.

I definitely prefer Marley but I wouldn't have a Marley and a Billy.
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:29 PM
I think Marley goes the best out of those choices but don't think it goes with Billy, or Marlow

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.
Posted 08 February 2013 - 11:51 PM
I definitely like Abel the best of those. Not ideal with Allen though.
I would have thought Dayne and Marley were girls.
Michael - I like Mick and Mike as NNs.
Abram, Amos, Ambrose, Asa (still not perfect with Allen but at least don't have their own l's too like Abel Allen)

Thanks ladies will run these past my husband, still fond of Dane and I like Tyler too but some of your suggestions are really good!It was so easy picking billy as its a family name. This time is so hard we both don't agree on anything.
