Baby Boy Names

Baby Boy Names

You guys! I’ve got the best game ever for your Thursday. It’s that one game where you help us decide what to name our kid.

Okay okay just kidding. I mean, we have a few front runners but I know there are a zillion names out there that we haven’t thought of, and I’d love to hear your favorite boy names! Here are our parameters.

One. Nothing too trendy. We’re just not the people that are going to name our kid something super hipster and make him deal with it his whole life. My sister brought up a good point — ya gotta be able to picture the name working for a baby and for a grown man. Word.

Two. Nothing so popular he’ll be one of seven kids with the same name in his kindergarten class.

Three. Something that goes with Foy. Our last name can be tricky — pairing it with a first name that’s too short sounds kinda choppy.

That’s it! Seriously, if you have any boy names that you love I’m so excited to hear them. Leave us a comment! xoxo

  1. I know I answered this on a different blog post (maybe one of Ryan’s? Or a Momtastic post?), but I wanna see what names come to mind this morning (bear with me if there’s repeats–unless you like ’em, then like away!).

    Carson, Harry, Wesley, Weston, Benjamin, Lewis, Clinton, Jasper, Silas, Irving.

    Also, you can look up popular baby names by decade at:

  2. Isn’t baby naming so weird? We picked our baby boy’s name (I’m 26 weeks) and then my coworker’s wife gave birth 2 days later and announced his name. It was the name we chose. I burst out crying at work because I felt like we’d lost *our* name. Then we decided to use it anyway!

  3. My son is Peter Joseph. He is named after my grandfather. I love his name because it is traditional, but not common

  4. i dont know why but reading your post made me think of Zachary.
    Zachary Foy has a nice ring i think.
    either way, you might just be the kind of couple that waits to meet baby and pick from there.

    im nowhere near having kids but i already have names for 2 girls if i do end up having girls. well see how that works out.

    good luck!

  5. Congrats! Boy names that were on my short list are Maxwell, Xander, Oscar, Oliver, Emmet, Owen, Eli and Finnegan. Good luck… name selection is not easy.

  6. I’ll throw a few European names in the ring. I hope they work just as well in English, ‘my’ German pronounciation would be quite different;)

    Good Luck

  7. No joke, I went to high school with a guy named Foy Maloy…Jr! I found it totally hilarious that his dad was proud enough of that name to give it to his son as well. Have you thought about waiting until he’s born and then picking a name that seems to fit him out of a small list? Good luck!

  8. I guess i’m a bit biased in my opinion, but I kinda love the name Gabriel – mostly because I love my name!

    Gabriel Foy – sounds good don’t you think?

    Good luck choosing, and all the best!
