I was talking to a good friend the other day who is pregnant. She is having a boy but is struggling with boy names. She wants a real strong masculine name but feels like most names are now ambiguous of the sex. It does make sense.
When I was a kid I never knew a female Ryan but there are plenty now. So I have been racking my brain trying to think of macho names.
Jack Bauer – I tried to talk my wife into using this name. Sure we had a girl so it didn’t matter but come on great macho name.
Chuck Norris? – not sure you can name you kid Chuck and not expect mass amounts of teasing.
Then I thought how about picking non traditional names like:
Hurricane: how cool of name is that. Super Macho
Rock: yeah makes me think WWE too
Grizzly: this would be an awesome name for this boy. Trust me.
You could go superhero names. I am sure they may be trending.
Thor: you would have to let him grow his hair out.
Hawkeye: okay not really a super hero.
Scooby: okay not super macho or super hero but not feminine.
So many struggles and no success. Although I have been saving a name. The name my wife and I decided upon if we had a son and since I am almost 40 a biological son isn’t the most promising. Ready?? Drumroll??
Nathan – traditional & masculine. You my good friend are welcome to it. That or Grizzly.
