Baby Name Needed – Strong, Unusual Boy Name

Cassandra is expecting a baby boy in early June and she’d like some name suggestions.

She’s looking for “strong, unusual names” with one or two syllables. So far, Cassandra likes the name Fox and her partner prefers Aston. The baby’s surname will begin with an L and have one syllable. (Think Ladd.)

When I hear “strong,” I think of plosives (p, b, t, k, etc.). So I focused on short names with strong sounds that aren’t currently in the top 100. Here’s what I came up with:

Bennett
Brent
Brett
Brock
Cash
Chet
Clark
Colt
Corbin
Craig
Dane
Dax
Deacon
Drake
Duke
Emmett
Flint
Frank
Garrett
Grant
Gray
Holt
Jax
Jett
Kai
Keaton
King
Knox
Paxton
Pierce
Quinn
Rex
Rhett
Stone
Tate
Trent
Tucker
Victor
Zack
Zane

Which of the above do you like best? What other names would you suggest to Cassandra?

  2. We named our son Artem, which I think of as a strong unusual name. My other favorite is Zev, howeer, I don’t think it would work well with a last name like Ladd.

  3. Mmmm Artem is great!

    Thanks for your comments… many fantastic names to contemplate. I have a lot of thinking to do within the next 7 days before the birth!

    Will let you know what we decide upon.

    Cheers
    Cassandra
