    re: Javier, I know a child named Javier and his name is pronounced Jay-vee-uh, however it is almost constantly mispronounced by people who dont know him.

    To be totally honest, I actually think it makes the parents sound uneducated pronouncing the name with a J sound as opposed to Harv-e-yair, which is the well known spanish pronunciation.

    I agree with Sam4Frankie and think a different spelling would be the way to go.

    Now to the OP, what about Jagger, Sullivan, Spencer, Elliott, Lincoln, Hudson.

    OP - Some of my favourite offbeat boys names are:


    Archer
    Atticus
    Benji
    Banjo
    Cassius
    Gage
    Jameson
    Jasper
