Just for fun really...bc I already know that if I have a son one day I'll name him Noah. But, hey I may have another boy! :) WDYTO my names? I would like to know what you think of them and which one is your favorite. Thanks in advance!
I like Elliot & Ryan best hay anythings better then Hooper jack which is what my sister inlaw wants to call her little bun in the oven.
Hope I can help???!
Devon- will always make me think of the luncheon meat... :eek: sorry..
Elliott - is lovely... but he may get ET comments... especially if the movie is
Payton - Its different ... but I like it -
Ryan- this would be my favourite... but other people will disagree.. cause I love the familiar names... I think it is cute for a little boy- but it also works for a man :)
i really like elliott. a girlfriend of mine called her younger son elliott and he's the most gorgeous boy you'd ever want to meet. I don't mind ryan but, sorry, i don't like devon or payton at all.
I Think Elliot is cute, and would be a good adult name too.
I dont like Payton or Devon - sorry and Ryan reminds me of Bryan
The only name on the list I would consider using would be Ryan.
Devon is a type of luncheon meat from the deli.............
i like payton or elliot - devon reminds me of meat
our little treasures
I don't like Payton devon or elliott Ryan isn't bad, I love unusual names but payton and devon sound funny...
Although people prob dont like my kids names!!!
Payton sounds like a girls name, I can't get past that old TV soap - Peyton Place. Also - rhymes with Lleyton - ick.
And ditto what everone else said - Devon is beef luncheon, or polony as they call it in WA.
Ryan is OK, but Elliot is the nicest.
Devon is a beautiful county in the southwest of the UK and sadly as others have said a luncheon meat here :( Hence my name lol tis where I am from the county not a tin
I agree payton sounds like a girls name I like these two mind you :)
:) i don't mind the name Ryan.
I think Payton reminds me of when someone designs something and they say patent pending (sorry)
Elliot first - sounds really cool. Ryan second.
I just love Elliot it just sounds so cute for a bub and spunky for a man. It is the name I would like for my number 2 son who is due in Feb except my BIL name is Alistair so both him and bub would get Ali or elli which would be annoying cause BIL is a bit (bit meaning lot) weird.
I agree with the others Devon is a cheap yucky lunchmeat or maybe a new charactor on Bold and the Beautiful
Payton is a girls name remember the hand that rocks the cradle her name was Payton ..............ewwwww creepy chick
Ryans nice but Elliot is really really really nice.
If anyone can think of a different shortening to Elliot I would love to hear it Id still love to use that name :D
i like the name payton and also ryan as this is my little brothers name...
Devon is nice and if you like it then you should have it! dont let others put you off...
i had never heard of devon as a meat before....
I know there was an actor called Devon Sawyer (sp?) when i was younger
a friend of mine had a crush on him...
Has anyone ever seen the movie The Sure Thing with John Cusack and Daphne Zuniga (Melrose Place)?
In it he and Daphne are from the same college and are hitch hiking across the USA to get to LA. They are total opposites, she's prim and works to a schedule and he is a partying college boy. At one point they stuff her jumper to make her look pregnant to get a ride. A nice old lady picks them up and asks what they are going to name the baby. The girl says, "If its a girl Cynthia and if it's a boy, Elliot". The lady comments they are lovely names.
Meanwhile John Cusack is in the back seat with a disgusted look on his face. "Elliott? Elliott? We are NOT calling the kid Elliott. Elliott is a fat kid woth glasses who eats paste. No we are definitely not calling the kid Elliott. The kid needs a real name - a name like Nick. Yeah, Nick's your buddy, Nick's your mate, Nick's the guy you drink beers with, the kind of guy who doesn't mind if you puke in the backseat of his car".
Anyway, this movie is a cult classic in our family and it was decided that the first born boy of all the siblings would have to name their's Nick. And yes, 10 years ago my sister had a boy and his name is NICHOLAS! Sounds weird, but it is a very cool name and we love this movie. Elliott on the other hand I can 't warm to for some reason........
Remember on Young Talent Time there was a boy called Devon. He had this Joker-face smile plastered on this face ALL THE TIME and it was kind of disturbing. Anyway, Johnny D was the real star at the time.
Payton may get 'paid out' for his name?
I like Payton and Elliott!
Devon - i like it
Elliott - reminds me of E.T
Payton - do like this name but ONLY for a girl
Ryan - love it
sioban I think the kid off young talent time was Bevan???? I think he had a really bad mousy mullet and always sung the soppy love songs
I was going to use Payton as a middle name for my last son, As all my children middle name starts with the letter P. Needless to say it's not thought we ended up using Prescott ( a Family name)
I like Ryan the best. Elliot reminds me of Elliot Goblet (http://www.elliotgoblet.com.au/) . Devon reminds me of fritz and Peyton, patent pending.
mollyandkurts mum you are absolutely right it was Bevan, not Devon.
They both sound the same though so I always thought it was a rather unusual name. It reminds me of devon and tomato sauce sandwhiches for lunch as a child - which I loathed.
