Five-Name Friday: Boy Name Starting with T

five name friday, boy names, t-names

You’re at the gym…along with every other person in the neighborhood who made “lose weight” one of their New Year’s resolutions. While waiting for your turn on a treadmill, you chat with a friendly pregnant lady who’s in line for an elliptical. You ask what type of name she’s searching for and she responds:

What are your favorite T names for boys? Our surname starts with T, and his stepsister’s name starts with T, so we want to keep the pattern going.

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of suggestions. But several treadmills just opened up simultaneously, so you only have time to give her five baby name suggestions before claiming one.

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 public?
  • 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:

What are your favorite T names for boys? Our surname starts with T, and his stepsister’s name starts with T, so we want to keep the pattern going.

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
