Its the Welsh name for David. I like it because its not common.
This is my son's name and I think it is just such a handsome name and really sums up his very strong personality
i created this name as a variant of Dakota cos i luv the nn Kody and i thought that this was a better version. this is just a cute name 4 both genders !
I have liked this name for around seven years ever since I met a little girl with this name but I like it for a boy.
this is a unique name I like.
I had a dog with this name when I was 7, and I always said i would name my child this. Being 7 I did not have children so instead i named my dog this.
I like the power this name conveys
my future son's name
Ever since I first saw the movie "The Omen", I have been obsessed with that name. You shouldn't just think of an evil little boy. It's such a waste for such a beautiful name. Yamane is the name of a pastor in Ethiopia. I stayed with him when I went on a missions trip and he is just a wonderful man.
- It sounds like this little boy is wild yet sophisticated.
- I just like this name .
short simple unique
here's me with those Irish names again. Daniel is just a classic, not too
common name and I think Ryan complements it well.
boring it may be but it is one of my all time favorite names
- Dante was a writer in the middle ages who wrote things that kind of pushed the envelope.
I don't know if I would ever have the guts to use it for my own son, especially since I live in "Historic Wallace Idaho where the movie Dante's Peak was filmed!", but I love it. It is unusual, a big plus for me, and I love the way it sounds.
(after a character in my fave book)
it sounds sort of like the name of a King or a character from a fantasy novel.
a little boy at my church is named Darius and he's cute
. Dartagnan DAR-TAN-ION
Dartagnan was the leader of the 3 Musketeers, my favourite bedtime story as a child. I still love that story and the courageous DARTAGNAN!
My favorite name is Dashal ( Dash-ul) Hawkins because it is my sons name! My husband picked the first which he said he heard on the tv show Santa Barbara. I picked the middle name after his dad whose nickname was Hawk. Hawkins means "little Hawk" Most people have never heard the name before.
after the author, of course! but i think it's a great name and pretty unique
(i know there are some out there, but not that many). dash would also make
a fine nickname.
- Maybe it is old and worn out, but it is a family name of mine and still flows very well in everyone's mind.
like King David
Name of two of my fave actors
Over-used, yes. But it's mystique never seems to die out.
David Micheal: a classic, but it shows strength and caring
- David Joseph: -stroung willed
One of my friends' brothers is named this. I like the name David, so adding
an "n" would make it a little less popular
- way too popular, but a very pleasing sounding name.
- I love this name and it is part of our family background. It is becomming very popular so I dont know if I will use it as I was one of the "Jennifers" of the 70-80's
- not because of the tv show, but because this is my last name and what a unique way to perpetuate that
Strong male name.
heard it somewhere
great sounding name
Delachey is my sons name, unusual names run threw my family my mum and my aunties are good at making up and finding names for babies.
first began liking this name when there was a guy in the cure back in the
early 80s named michael dempsey (not a major player or anything, so it's
kind of funny that the name has stuck with me). it's a normal last name,
but probably a pretty uncommon first name.
my uncle's name; I've never heard of anyone else with the name
Sounds gentle but daring.
Good D name. I would say the cooler version of Dexter. "Dex" for short. I dont know if anyone else has this name... I thought it up one day.
A spanish name I happen to like.
I have a son named DIEZEL and I love it, he's named after a national champion boxer(dog) . I named him that because I had a special bond with a dog named Diesel, I just put in the z for some zest!
again, bummer it's "over-used." (see also:
sounds exotic and mysterious to my english ears.
my son's name....Italian,Latin or French...also Greek
D names are big in my family and this one is not widly used. The only draw back to this name is a bit of creative teasing nick names.
my grandson.....strong German. Full name is Dokken Edwin Hartman
i like names with a hard sounds like T & K
sounds like an easy going guy, possibly with an Aussie or Irish accent
- Dominic Christion: I find this name to be pretty classy. Dominic means "born
on the Sabbath" and Christian/Christion means "follower of Christ".
my grandfather.... a very aristocratic ITALIAN name
very Scottish heritage
Is my brother's friend's last name.
Mostly because of a character in an Oscar Wilde book, "The Portrait of Dorian
Gray" which is my all time favorite book.
also one of most common boy names here. It means "a dear one" or "a loved one".
a great teacher in college
I like this name cause it is unusual and I have never heard anyone with this name, I heard this name on TV no idea what show it was but it was the last name of guy on this show..parents hate it but I still want to name my son this!!!
this is my son's name, Drayton is my brother and grandfather's middle name and Loy is the name of my brother-in-law and father-in law
This was the main character in the Desperado movies a few years ago, played
by Alex MacArthur. I loved the character, and loved the name.
My husband's name is Doug and he already named his first child after him, so I tried to think up another way to incorporate his name into any son we might have. I also saw the movie "Ever After" and liked the name Dougray (the guy who plays the prince) but didn't want to use Doug because it would be the same as my husband and his son.
- sounds very adventurous, like from the movies.
- A strong name which would sound better the older the person got! This name also is the name of a television and movie character from "The Highlander", an immortal.
- Duncan Connor: I have a passion for Scottish,Irish,Celtic and Gaelic names!! And I just love how this one sounds!
- Duncan Murphy: It's a jaunty and spirited name that's old fashioned, uncommon but doesn't sound fabricated. This little boy has spirit and character. It happens to be my son's name and I love the way people grin and let the name roll off their own tongue before they say..."Duncan, I like that name!"
- Duncan Niccolo: I adore this name! Duncan is a very masculine name and I picture a cute rather chubby little boy who would be very smart and have a positive outlook on life. He'd be the type of boy who was on the football team yet a member of the computer club. I guess a good all rounder. Niccolo gives a continental feel to the regular name Nicholas. I think this combination goes well as it brings a rather regal British sounding name with a rather sexy Latin sounding one.
Dustin Tyrel: my best bud
I love the name Dustin, it means brave warrior. I think it sounds strong
and will be great for a little boy and the man he grows into. I love Tyler
and think it too sounds strong and sharp and I think it flows well with Dustin
and a lot of other names too.
This name is under the girls names, but I think it sounds masculine. Very unique.
If I ever have a fourth son, Edmund will likely be his name. Since childhood,
I have adored for reasons that still perplex me. Perhaps because of Edmund
from the Chronicles of Narnia?
It is just a really cool traditional name. It can also be derived into many different names e.g Ed, Ted, Eddie etc....
name of a made up monster
I know a little girl named India and I thought it was a neat idea to look at names of countries for names of children. I know two people from Egypt and think that it could be a really interesting name for a girl or boy, especially if you've been there. (However, native arabic speakers sometimes pronounce it as e-gypt with a harsh g like in Gus)
It is the name of the brother of my hero, Peyton Manning. And since the name
Peyton is now WORN OUT, this is the next best thing. I also like its Southern flair.
my dad's name; an old Biblical name, but still quite uncommon
Elidah Patrick (ee-LIDE-uh)
This name is one I found while searching for meanings of Elijah. This is a variation of Elijah, and also Alijah which is also very unusual.
I love the sound of the name, and he was also one of the great prophets
Elliot, nickname Eli
Sounds honest and is not common
I like it because it sounds old fashioned and isn't totally overused
This is an Italian boy's name drawn from Emmanuel, a bibical name. It is pronounced eh-mahn-yoo-EHL, and I like it for how smoothly it rolls off your tongue.
i like the name Eric but a lot of people have that name so when i saw Emeric (M ric) name on a web site i fell in love with it. the middle name Justice is because it goes nice with Emeric.
A simple, happy-sounding name
my favorite Disney film is The Little Mermaid and the main man in it is Eric
I just like the sound of it
- strong and soft at the same time - like a warrior - beautiful and precious
The perfect name. Not overused, beautiful but masculine, looks nice, sounds nice, could fit a football player or a Supreme Court judge.
old fashioned name yet very classic.
I'm not sure if this is a Biblical name, but it does remind me of the Isreali name Eitan... But I prefer Ethan
- Ethan Raine: the name Ethan is from a list that i was looking through 3 years ago and it just stuck. Raine is for a singer that i love. and because i love rain showers
French for Stephen, Manly yet "French"
Many people regard this name as geeky. I think it's a name suited for a sexy,
Evan, like Cole, I think sounds really rough and rugged. That and it incorporates
some of my name (vanessa) in it =).
I think this is a nice, Irish, masculine name. Unfortunately, my husband refuses to name a boy Evan, because it rhymes with his name! (Kevin)
Its a perfect name. The name ages with the child.
- Evan Grant: It's just my fav
Evan Micheal : I am 14 weeks along and my husband and I have decided on Evan Micheal [for a boy].
See also: Evyn
i like the way this name looks and sounds because of it's similarity to
alexander. but it's a lot less common than alexander and a nice alternative.
and there's always the option of going by evan, van, ander or anders, or
even andrew with this name
it's such a cute name and it's a strong name
I had a friend named Evan, he was awesome, and i just like how the name
see also: Evan
the Scottish form of "Evan". More uncommon than Evan, with a softer, burrish
sound. Also - Ewan McGregor.
I enjoy the name Ezekeal--call him zek for short, it is a name for the cool kid in class
I love this name because it reminds me of a beautiful, brooding musician type. He'd have eyes that could tell a story and a mysterious charm that would draw you in.
Very masculine, reminds me of someone strong and coragous. I found this in one of my favorite series of books.
I always wanted lovebirds and if I did get them, Cecilia would be the female's
name. This would be the other lovebird's name.
coming from frank,hungarian name..very ophisticated and lovely
I love the sound of it! I picture a very wild and funny kid with this!
Like that it is very unusual. Also like Finian with Finn as a nickname. Brings to mind a spunky, risk taker as a child.
unusual, masculine, cool and the nickname of a very good friend.
My husband and I picked out this name for a boy before I was even pregnant.
One day we were discussing names in our families, and he mentioned that his
grandmother's maiden name was "Flint." At the same time, we both said, "You
know, that would make a nice boys name!" I think it has a strong sound to
it, I love the family connection, and I really like the uniqueness. I was
surprised to find it in my baby names book (one book lists the meaning as
"rock" another as "stream"), since I had never heard of a Flint before. I
did end up having a boy, and the name definately suits him. He is very strong,
and definately has his own opinions!
It make me envision a sweet, gentle, and unique man
Not too common and looks good when written.
I like it because it sounds kind of romantic
Fox Logan Reilly
To break the boring trend of naming everyone in the family after everyone else from an earlier generation, we decided that a unique name was in order for our son. After months of not agreeing upon a name on day we both just looked at each other and at the same time said "Fox." The rest is history. Our son's name is Fox Logan Reilly side note Logan is also the name of the X-man character Wolverine, one of my favorite super-heroes
Sounds bright and sparkling, like a trumpet! (and the Angel Gabriel plays
the trumpet to welcome people to Heaven).
romantic and memorable
It sounds so peaceful and dignified.
If I ever have a son that will be his name
It means God's messanger
Gabriel George: Gabriel is so sweet! And George is strong, smart,
mature- they balance each other.
Gabriel Jonas: the classic biblical name, Gabriel, strong yet sensitive
Gabriel Matthew: I love Gabriel as I think it sounds so cute. My mom's
friend is using this name for her son who she is pregnant with. I love the
middle name Matthew cos it is my crush's name :)
One of the twelve tribes in the Holy bible(the book of Numbers) also my sons
name is Asher one of the twelve tribes. I thought these two names would go
- a nice, simple, easy to say and spell, yet incredible underused name.
What could be better?
- I've always loved this name. It is adorable and different
Gage Jagger: Very sexy, sophisticated- the kind of guy who has seen
it all, done it all, a rock star, maybe.
Gage Finn: I've loved Gage since the first time I heard it. I can't
quite explain why, mostly because it's unique. And I like Finn because, once
again, it's ocean-related.
Gage Parker: This is our son's name.
Galen standing for "healer, calm." in Greek. And Joseph is nice with it, meaning "God will add."
I have a thing for welsh and welsh-sounding names.
just like the way it sounds
I'll admit that I originally loved this name because it was the name of the boy I had my first crush on. 20 years later, I still love the name--I think of Arthurian legends first (then of course, Gareth who sat next to me in 3rd grade!). It's a nice classic, underused name with a lot of history. I also like the lispy -th at the end.
Garrett Jonathan sounds "Classic" I think that's why I love this name so much!
Gavyn Izrael (like "Israel")
SEXY!! Sounds tough and gental. sounds like a vixen in bed. OH YEAH!!
More unusual than Kevin or Evan, but it has that great sound.
Another I just like, not sure why. I'm not really as attached to boy's names
It means white hawk. I like nature names. Names that means flowers or animals.
- Gavin Nigel David Robin: I am a huge Bush fan so I have chosen to name my second born son Gavin Nigel David Robin.
I love the name "Gavyn," and it's not used that much..at least I haven't heard of too many people with that name! There's not really a reason I like "Izrael" except..I just do!
MY SON'S NAME IS GENESS. WE LIVED IN LOS ANGELES AND PUT TWO STREET SIGNS
TOGETHER TO COME UP WITH HIS NAME. GENESSEE AVE. AND VENICE BLVD., CHANGED
THE SPELLING, AND CAME UP WITH GENESS!
Gentle Jesse Dante
My sons name is Gentle Jesse Dante, he is named after my grandfather Gentle Pride. I haven't seen anyone with a name like his and most people find it a beautiful name... but for boys, you gotta have a masculine middle name to avoide teasing. I'm about to have another boy and need a name that compliments my first sons name and is simular in style.
Meaning is very important. p.s. My son's name means gentle gift of lasting pride.
As both my fathers name and the male form of my own name, Georgia, I am especially attracted to George. It has a very sophisticated air to it, one that I admire.
George has been around forever, and now it sounds almost contemporary.
my future son's name
It's Italian and sounds nice.
This name is exotic and not widely used in the U.S. It's a nice alternative
to Joseph. It could be a great middle name with its accent on the second
My favorite name for a boy is God Jesus, because who can possibly be a better namesake? But you have to say it right! It's Gott Zhay-Zu! But because my husband is Italian-Jewish, I cannot name my child this. Therefore, we have compromised on the name Alberto Moishe Gottfried.
My husband got the name GoHan off Dragan ball Z. I came up with Lee. GoHan is a name that you never hear used. It brings out a whole new meaning. Lee gives the name a ring to it!! That is what we are going to name our boy!! After my husbands favorite cartoon character! It is so peaceful yet powerful ang has that special ring to it.
Gray is the kind of name your kids would thank you for when they grow up.
It's got strength and substance.
grey was a young man in a book i read called xanth by piers Anthony grey
was from a place called mundane (aplace of no magic) some how throw a odd
twist of fate.( you'd have to read the book) he ends up in xanth 9 a place
full of magic) and finds out that he was i guess you could say made there
and that he had a magical talent. hes talant was knowledge anything he wanted
to know he knew. i belive in magic i belive that knowledge is power and i
belive that grey is the man i hope my son grows to be.
A name that reminds me of something out of an old english book.
It's unusual without being strange or out there.
like i said, i'm obsessed with mythology...
for a boy. a little different from "griffon," can be shortened to "griff," which is simply, like, cool, like, totally. especially cool if "griffith" is a surname in your family tree.
nice Italian alternative to the popular "Julian"
- I think it sounds cute and michevious.
- Gunnar sounds very strong and masculine. It makes me picture a muscular, handsome, blonde guy with a Scandinavian accent.
After a grandfather.
