What do you think of each of these boy names?
- sarahemmieLv 66 years agoFavorite Answer
Alexander - I personally have never found this name appealing, too cliche and commonly used as a "filler name"
Benjamin - I adore this name! I think the nickname Benny is too cute!
Clayton - It is not too common, but I would personally never use it. Awkward saying it to me.
Dustin - Never have liked this name... nothing cute about it
Edmund - Too old sounding for me. Not appealing
Edward - Never have liked this name, or the way it sounds... too harsh
Elias - I only like the fact that you could call him Eli for short
Gregory - Too old man sounding
Jesiah - Is this a name? It is cute though!
Jonathan - Love this spelling. Jon is cute for a nickname!
Lemuel - Do not like this at all
Lucas - Can never go wrong with this name. Such a cute sound, and Luke just makes it even more adorable
Samuel - Eh, never have been fond of it
Theodore - Do not like this at all. Theo is cute though
Thomas - Do not like this one at all, never have
Tyler - Simple, and cute!

On a scale of 1-10, I would rate the names as follows:
Alexander- 9/10- Very handsome, strong name.
Benjamin- 7/10- It's pretty good. I especially like it with the nickname Ben or Bennie.
Clayton- 6/10- I'm not really a fan.
Dustin- 7/10- It's nice, but not one of my favorites.
Edmund- 7/10- A little old fashioned, but still a good name.
Edward- 7/10- See Edmund
Elias- 4/10- I don't really like the sound of this name.
Gregory- 10/10- Excellent name.
Jesiah- 7/10- Very good.
Jonathan- 9/10- I like this name quite a bit. It has a very nice flow to it.
Lemuel- 3/10- I personally don't like this name very much.
Lucas- 8/10- Nice, handsome name.
Samuel- 9/10- I really like this name. Sounds professional and has the possible nickname Sam or Sammy.
Theodore- 7/10- Strong, masculine name with a lot of possible nicknames.
Thomas- 7/10- Has an old fashioned (but not outdated or dusty) feel to it.
Tyler- 6/10- It's just okay.
Hope this helps!

I absolutely love Alexander, Benjamin, Edward, Edmund, Jonathan, Samuel, Theodore and Thomas.
Gregory, Lucas and Tyler are nice, too, and Elias is also nice, though a bit unusual but I like the sound of it.
However, I don't like Dustin and I really dislike Clayton, Jesiah and Lemuel a lot (sorry ...).
But that's just my opinion. Name your child whatever you want, none of these names are the kind of names we should report you to the social services for, haha. They're all okay.

Clayton bothers me because the suffix "ton" actually makes this a town name.
Dustin just reminds me of dust.
Edmund just isn't as pleasing to the ear as Edward is.
Elias sounds annoying.
Gregory sounds dorky.
Jesiah irks me because I find the "ah" sound at the end of guy's names is too feminine (like Sophia, Isabella, etc.)
Jonathan I find very boring.
Lemuel for some reason grosses me out.
Lucas is "soft". I prefer Luke. Much more sturdy and handsome.
Tyler sounds like the name of a little sh*t.
