Five-Name Friday: Boy Name with Letters A, I & R

five-name friday, boy name

It’s pizza night! You call in your order, drive down to the local pizza place at the appointed time, and…have to hang out for a few minutes because your order isn’t ready yet. Also waiting for pizza is a friendly woman who happens to be pregnant, so the two of you start chatting — first about food, then about your weekend plans, and finally about her baby name search. Here’s the gist of what she’s looking for:

To continue the pattern in the sibset, I need a boy name that contains the letters a, i, and r. This little boy will grow up pagan in a family of mixed Celtic descent.

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of suggestions. But your order is up, and you want to get this pizza home while it’s still hot, so you only have time to give her five baby name suggestions before you head out.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first five names you come up with (which is what you’d be forced to do in real life) you get to press a magical “pause” button, brainstorm for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer her the best five names you can think of.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your five names before looking at anyone else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in a pizza place?
  • Five names only! All names beyond the first five in your comment will be either deleted or replaced with nonsense words.

Finally, here’s the request again:

To continue the pattern in the sibset, I need a boy name that contains the letters a, i, and r. This little boy will grow up pagan in a family of mixed Celtic descent.

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
