Five-Name Friday: Boy Name Like Neville, Wilbur

five name friday, baby name request, boy name

It’s Five-Name Friday! Here’s today’s baby name request:

I’m interested in boy names you *never* hear people talking about, like Neville and Wilbur. Basically, names that are not at all trendy, the direct opposites of Noah and Liam.

Can you come up with five great baby name ideas for this person?

Here are the rules:

  • Be independent. Choose your five names before checking out anybody else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. These should be names you’d have no problem recommending to someone in real life.
  • Five names only. If your comment includes more than five names, I’ll have to do some deleting. This includes nickname suggestions!

Which five baby names are you going to recommend?

[You can also comment on previous Five-Name Friday posts, or send me your own 2-sentence baby name request using the contact form.]
