  • Great list of names, quite a few you hear of often but a lot not so much. I have a friend with a Mateo and this is the first time I have ever seen the name again.

  • Happy to see, or not see actually, my boys names on here. I never was one to follow fashion or trends set by others

    Reply

  • Some of those names are lovely and some are just plain weird

  • Neither of my boys name appear on any of those lists.. but I like that they are not listed under any of those grouping. :)

  • I want jayden if I get a boy

    Reply

  • Some of these names I certainly like, some I dislike.

  • We only had one boys name and that was Logan

  • I wanted to name my boy zayden but we settled on brodie (dads choice) and I’m very happy we chose a gender neutral name :)

  • I’m on the look out for a good ‘L’ name but none seem to stand out to me

  • So many weird names with weird spelling make it harder for kids when they get older, I know because my surname is difficult and I spent all my life spelling it out, and being a two word surname even computes often don’t like the space in between. Of course this article turns into an advert.

  • I think it’s important to remember that the child has to carry that name throughout their life (unless they hate it and have it changed). Working in child care I’ve come across from totally weird names – names that the mothers have admitted came to them in their dreams.

  • I’m about to give birth soon and if it’s a boy Levi is our name we absolutely adore! Some great ideas from this list however and some not so good but each to their own

    Reply

  • Gosh there’s certainly some different ones on there! Not all that I like but each to their own

  • Our name is Ewan, it’s old fashion and you don’t hear it often these days.
