Names for a Boy

• 08 May 2012




Naming our fourth child, a baby boy, was an arduous process.  You would think, that after naming 3 other children, we would be considered experts by some at this baby-naming business.  In fact, we were in far worse shape than many first-time parents, who usually have names picked out just after the 5-month ultrasound, or at the very least by the time they entered the hospital to give birth!  In retrospect, we probably waited until the last minute because we were so heavily focused on surviving the pregnancy.  But in any case, it made for some serious panic!

When it came to looking for a name, we went about it the usual way.  We hit a large bookstore and perused every baby name book on the shelf.  We looked online at various websites.  We even looked at family geneology charts trying to find something that felt right to both of us; but alas we came up dry on all accounts.  If I liked a name, he didn't.  If he liked a name, I didn't.  And so on and so forth.

Finally, in a stroke of brilliance, my husband suggested I write a post asking you all to help us choose a name.  Boy, were there a lot of suggestions (in fact, we chose one of them!).  In order to help those of you struggling to name your baby boy, I've organized all of the reader suggestions here--all 100 of them.  This is truly an incredible list.  Well done, my friends!
