Hi!

I need honest opinions on this name please.. I love it but not sure if it's too old fashioned? I have two boys Adam and Austin and a very boring common surname.. Any suggestions will be great.

Thanks!

I really don't like Hilton - makes me think of the hotel chain, and the trashy heiress descendant.

Yeah..sorry, I just think of Paris.

Yes and that's my biggest concern too. It's difficult naming a third boy!

My first thought was Luke. Classic and timeless

I love the name Theo.

Both Luke and Theo are great and go well with Adam and Austin.  original.gif

I'd carry on with your A names. Ashley, Ari, Archer or Antony would all suit I think

Hilton is a terrible name for a child.

I agree with the PP, I'd look at a 3rd A name and definitely cross Hilton off the list.

Alexander, Aaron, Adrian, Angus, Alistair, Andrew, Anthony, Asher would all go well with Adam and Austin.

I think Hilton is fine and fits the sibset well.

With a name like Hilton, a nickname at school will most likely be Hilly or Hillary etc. It is a name that isn't really as suited to a boy.

Have you thought about a name like Blake or Ryan.

#14 Misette

Posted 15 February 2013 - 09:30 PM

Ok thank you all, it's officially being crossed off the list!

I love all the A names but husband is not keen on the A theme continuing and we already have a Luke amongst friends.

Blake is nice and I like Ryan but I have a Rylan in the family so may be a bit too similar.

I was also considering Cameron but its meaning "crooked nose" isn't appealing..

Any other ideas?

How about Milton.... or Gilbert? I fell in love with the name Gilbert recently, it's really stuck wub.gif

If you like the H's, how about Heston?

Have fun choosing a 3rd name, OP. Exciting times!

I went to high school with a Hilton - his name did cause much giggling amongst us girls.

#20 kerilyntaryn

I definitely continue with the A's other he'll feel left out

Adam, Austin

Asher
Alec
Alex
Aled
Angus
Andrew

I definitely don't like Hilton...what about Hudson?
I like Cameron - I don't think the meaning has any real bearing on how your child will turn out.
I don't think an A name is necessarily a must, other ideas:

Benjamin
Jacob
Hamish
Michael
Oliver
Jackson
Brandon
Xavier
Ethan
Damien
Kyle
Lewis
Gregory
Vance
Mitchell
Chase

I personally would try to steer away from another A name, IMO 2 same letter names is coincidence, 3 or more look silly over matchy.

Can't see why on earth one would feel left out, it's  just a letter - if you used,say, Ryan,then Adam could feel left out because the others both end in n, or Austin could feel left out because the others both have 4 letters  - really don't think any of these would happen wink.gif

I think Rowan or Conor would go well with the others

Hilton was my Dad's middle name, but that was after a family friend (surname). Not something I would consider for a first name.

How about Haydn / Hayden?

I have a few other ideas..

Isaiah Joel J..
Michael Joel J..
Matthew Joel J..
Oscar Joel J...

Isaiah looks to be quite popular in the US not so much here..

Wdyt?
