I found out Monday I am having another boy. For boys name I like uncommon but not necessary unusual names. Girls I would say I like unusual names (think I was settled with Evanthie Alexa). These are the names I have had on my list since I found out I was pregnant. Tell me what you think please.

Alexei
Rhys
Ryder
Seth
Emerson
Emmett

These names under are names I just put on my list today so could look again in an hour and not like them as I seem to do that but thought I would add them so you can tell me to keep them or not.
Keegan / Keenan
Mackinley
Preston
Quinton
Mattias
kinley
Paxton
Xander - To popular????

Of course I am open to more suggestions as none feel 100% right yet
TIA

I like any of the ones in your top list, with a preference for Emmett or Emerson.

With the exception of Xander, I think all of the ones on the bottom list are awful. Sorry.

I will put the top list in my order of favourite to lease favourite

Rhys
Emmett
Emerson
Seth
Ryder
Alexei

To be completely honest though, there is hardly anything between all of those names for me, They are ALL lovely, and i can imagine a cute little man running around being named any of those names wub.gif

Im not a huge fan of any of the names in the 2nd list - Xander would be my favourite out of them though.
However Im a person who likes names people know, and will know how to spell and say easily. SO maybe thats why i like Xander, as its more "common" than most of the other names.

Goodluck!

Alexei - I'm not a huge fan.
Rhys - lovely
Ryder - lovely
Seth - lovely
Emerson - not my favourite
Emmett - nice

Keegan / Keenan - sounds like a girl name to me.
Mackinley - high school, glee.
Preston - don't like it.
Quinton - definitely don't like it
Mattias - Matthias? It looks like you've accidentally left out an 'h'.
kinley - Definitely dislike
Paxton - No, don't like it.
Xander - To popular???? - I don't think this is too popular, I'm yet to meet a Xander. I like it.

Out of all the ones on the second list I probably prefer Xander the most but I would still use Alexander and then probably lean away from it because you have Xavier already as a middlename for Ashton. Some others I just see as spelled incorrectly.

From the first list, I like Seth, Emmett and Rhys.

From your top list I like Rhys, Seth and Emmett. I think they all work well with your other kids and fit your criteria of not too popular but not unusual. Alexei is a name I love but I think it doesn't fit as well as the others and I'd be staying away from another A name unless it's the ONE! I do think Alexei would make an awesome middle though.

Ryder and Emerson aren't really my style but I can see either in your sibset. I prefer Emmett to Emerson though.

From the bottom list I like Keanan, Matthias and Xander. I only know one Xander and I don't think it's any more popular than Ashton or Zachary/Zackarie. Matthias (that spelling) is a lovely name but, like Alexei I don't think it works well in the sibset, not that that matters if you love it. Keenan/Keanan is a legitimate name, it's Irish and I actually know one. It's very definitely a boys name! Keegan is also a boys name and I don't mind it but just prefer Keenan.

Mackinley, Kinley, Paxton and Preston are very much not my style and I wouldn't pick them over your other names. Quinton/Quinten is OK but I just bad associations with that name.

I'm not sure how any of these sit with you but your list made me think of:
Mason
Griffin
Archer
Fraser
Fletcher
Sutton
Brogan
Riordan
Jasper
Grady
Stafford
Spencer
Dashiell
Beckett
Solomon
Auden
Colton
Tobin
Ellis
Ethan
Owen

My top picks would be Rhys & Emmett from the first list. Followed by Seth, Emerson then Ryder in that order. I would leave Alexei as a middle name for the same reasons others have said.

This is obviously just my personal taste but none of the second group appeal to me at all except perhaps Xander but I do prefer the names you have in list one.

Some others that came to mind:

Kian
Finn/Flynn
Elijah
Tristian
Caleb
Malachai
Logan

Alexei - don't mind it, prefer Alexander, too many As?
Rhys - like
Ryder -hate
Seth - like
Emerson - might be mistaken for a girl's name
Emmett - like

These names under are names I just put on my list today so could look again in an hour and not like them as I seem to do that but thought I would add them so you can tell me to keep them or not.
Keegan / Keenan - prefer Keenan, but don't love either
Mackinley - Girl's name?
Preston - like. I've taught a great Preston
Quinton - don't mind, but this spelling doesn't look right.
Mattias - If you mean Matthias, then LOVE. If you meant it without the h, then I don't like it.
kinley - Girls?
Paxton - Girls?
Xander - Only if short for Alexander but then we're back to the too many As issue

LOVE Alexei

Emerson is great, but I also think of it as a girls name. Emmett is another good one.
