    Do you have any particular ethnic ancestries that we should know about? Scandinavian, German, English, Irish, Chinese, Bhutanese, etc?

    Other suggestions:
    - Darius (easy to spell, not unheard of, but not common either)
    - Cale (sounds cool, short form of Caleb, which (perhaps unfortunately?) means "dog" in Hebrew)
    - Xerxes (maybe a bit more unknown and harder to spell)

    I doubt Ivlivs would be terribly easy to spell, though! :mischief:

    I'm still going with Max Fightmaster Jacobs or Isaiah Mustafa Jacobs.

    It sounds powerful.


    I just remembered the clothing brand.

    How about August? Julian? Justin?

    These are good because they'll make your son feel like a Stan Lee character.

    Justin Jacobs is definitely a pornstar name. It's on the level of Damien Dunn. And Max Driller.

    I recommend he to not be named Justin due to reasons of having their name constantly being made fun of.

    You must be young. Justin is an excellent name. Timberlake is still more famous than Bieber, you know :p

    i wouldn't recommend a stand-out or unconventional name for your son, studies have shown that people with common names tend to get along well with others.
    so if you want your son more prone to 'WOW effect' then maybe

    I know it's corny, but you could name your kid after a personal hero.... I guess that's why you said Alexander. You have to be careful. I used to know a guy named Caine, after the guy from "Kung Fu".
    One recommendation, no could-be-a-girl's names: like Kim, Ashley, Leslie, Kerry.

    I hate most of those names. Cooper is a guy who makes barrels (and a beer). Ethan sounds like a synonym for "beat me up".

    Oh, trust me this thread has some good suggestions and some bad suggestions. But if I don't like it and my wife don't like it, it aint happening.
