Introduction:Baby name books should be handed out to all kindergarten or first-grade teachers. Can you imagine what they must go through on the first day of class? Some of the little boys will sport classic names like Robert, James or David. But the rest? It may be anyone's guess what the sex of the child may be. Here is my List My Five of baby boy names due for a comeback.
A baby name for boys that I love is Douglas. Hollywood gave us both Douglas Fairbanks and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. "I shall return" is the famous quote by World War II General Douglas MacArthur. A classy name, Douglas.
Name lists need to promote Craig as one of those simple, easy to pronounce baby names; it is Gaelic in origin and means cliff or rock. My hometown boasts a great blues guitarist named Craig Thatcher.
I'm being sneaky here -- Kurt is my husband's name. The baby naming resources tell me that Kurt is of English origin and means courteous. Then why is it that every guy I know named Kurt -- including my husband -- has a distinctively German last name?
Name lists, Hollywood moms must have been consulting you. We have actors Gary Cooper, Gary Sinise, Gary Oldman and Gary Busey. The world of cartooning boasts Gary Trudeau and Gary Larson.
I'm being sneaky once again. Alan is my husband's middle name. I do hope Alan Alda doesn't mind! Apparently Alan, like Craig, is also Gaelic and means rock. The bottom line? I'm married to a courteous rock.
Searching for a name for that new baby? There are plenty of baby names websites for your online perusal.
Great suggestions, these names are definitely due for a comeback.
Great choices! I just have to raise my eyebrows at some of the names people come up with.
Interesting list and names.
I'd vote for Donald, too!
Interesting names for the comeback .. one name that did not get a lot of recognition back-in-the-day and still does not today is "Kent" .. always thought that was a cool name .. nice list!
Thanks for your wonderful comments btw! I love all the names including Craig but I had a psychopathic boyfriend with that name in my younger years. He made me less found of it lol. Wonderful list of strong boys' names.
The old fashioned names are becoming popular again. Who would have thought? I just met someone who named their baby Henry. By the way, my husband is Douglas. All I can say is good choice Joyce!
A courteous rock! I love it! Great list. I enjoyed reading it.
