WDYT of these boy names? (We like names that aren't super popular, but are easy to pronounce/spell.) Our last name starts with a B and is two syllables, if that matters.


DH sorta wants to recycle his middle name, Burke, but I'm not a fan of that and wouldn't mind trying to find something else. What else do you think would be good? Feel free to suggest more, say your favorites, etc.!
& Rowan!

I like


But I think all of them are fine. All of them sound fine with Burke if you decide you want to go that way. I can't think of any alternatives to Burke off the top of my head. Do you have other family names you'd consider? Otherwise Rowan Everett would be my top pick!

Everett is my favorite out of those, possibly because it's in my top 5 also. I agree with the other ladies too, most of those make great first and mn options. I also don't think Burke is too bad, it's different but not awful and goes well with some of the choices you listed.

I really really love Rowan, Elliot and Liam! I like the suggestion of combining the middle names with the names on your list.

Landon and Liam are also on my list, so of course I love those. The others are all cute, too. And I agree you could do any combination to make fn and mn with your list.

Owen - reminds me of a) popular name and b) kid I grew up with
Rowan - I know a girl with this name
Elliott - reminds me of Def Leppard's lead singer, Joe Elliott
Zane - zany! would be amusing if a very calm and sedate child
Adrian - reminds me of Adrian Monk in an affectionate way, I kind of like it
Landon - no opinion
Liam - is a nickname
Everett - I used to live there

Landon - I really like it!
Liam - I like this one, too!

Owen - I wouldn't go with this if you don't want something popular, doesn't seem to fit in with your wants/needs. I know many Owens, and think it's rather popular.
Rowan totally adore. love, love, love.
Elliott - like this.
Zane - totally adore this, too.
Adrian - eh. not really my style.
Landon - this goes with Owen, to me. I think it's quite popular.
Liam - same, I think this is popular.
Everett - nms.

I love the name Everett. I've never known an Everett, but my gf just named her some that and it's SUCH a cute name! We call him Ev for short.

If my gf didn't just use this name, it would probably be on my list! lol
