Hello,
So, if we have a girl we like Luna Violet.
We have a few boys names but non that I hugely love.
So far we have
Dexter
Ezra
Jude
Samson
Jonah

Anyone have any ideas for nice boys names? To go with a two syllable surname ending in Ee sound.

2 of your names are great but not that unusual: Dexter - no 79 in 2012 in UK, Jude - No 81. I know a Jonah too. Just in case you desperately want it to be very unusual. How about Levi?

How about Silver?

You do know that Luna will be called Loony, don't you.

yawn Seeker,that's another thread. You do realise whatever you call your child,someone else could find a derogatory nickname. I could call them Sarah but if they were fat,skinny,short,tall,curly haired,pale...they would get an unkind nickname to suit that.
We had a girl called Ellen at school,a relatively simple 'normal' name.She got called 'Smellen'.It doesn't even make much sense but it followed her.There was a Dominic who would be called DomiDick.I find that much more offensive than being called a Loon.
But I guess you must love all my boys names seeing as you entirely ignored them,despite them being the thread subject.
Thank you everyone.Yeah maybe unusual wasn't the right adjective. More Kings of Leon ish is perhaps what we meant haha.Quite strong names.
DH loved Elijah but I just think Elijah Wood. I love Jesse but DH doesn't. Some nice ones to think of there though,thank you.Boys are much trickier for me to think of but that's because I think its a DD!

Love Samson and Jude. Jonah is a 'bad luck' name isn't it?

Do you mean, like, Amish names?

What about

Noah
John
Lemuel
Abraham
Gabriel?

Welly558 Wed 20-Feb-13 09:38:27

Ooo 'bad luck'?! I don't know. Due to the whale issue or something else?
Ha yes I suppose Amish names then.Although DH would die if that was suggested. I love Merrick but DH associates it with Being Human.
I like Abe.We have a Noah in the family :-\

I don't watch Tv so didn't know the Being Human reference to Merrick - I know it as a hill. Place names can be good - especially for boys - e.g. Devon, Ross etc

or, how about:

Dorian
Alrid
Caleb

I liked Caleb but DH doesn't so its out.
DH keeps going to Ezra.I like it because its Biblical.
Ha I had never heard the 'bad luck' idea.I obviously know the Jonah and the Whale story which I agree,is a spot of bad luck to find yourself in :-)
I think it may end up being Dexter tbh. Always wanted Elliott for first child regardless of gender but hubby dislikes. Very much like Ellis but is our friends name. I also know a little Dorian! I love Felix but its been poo-pooed by DH.

Dexter and Jude are great names. Dexter was on our list.

seeker Wed 20-Feb-13 13:02:22

Dexter and Jude both in the top 100. If that bothers you- it wouldn't me, but you did say you wanted unusual!

MoppingMummy Wed 20-Feb-13 14:17:31
