    Default Is this name too out there?

    Still struggling so badly to find the perfect name for 2nd baby boy.

    I think I really like the name Icarus (middle name will be Jack).
    But is it too out there?
    My son's name is a "normal" strong name so I don't know if they'll go together either.

    Would love to hear opinions please!

    I don't really like it - sorry! All I can think about is him growing up with the nick name "Icky"

    Not really a fan either, a bit weird for me. Isaac and Isaiah are nice if you like 'I' names

    I don't love it. Honestly have not heard of it. So I googled (as you do). Greek mythology! How would you pronounce it?

    Also I think you could make the nn 'Ike' out of it.

    I belive it's pronounced "ick-er-us" 😊
    And yup it's from Greek mythology which is why I love it, plus the nintendo game kid Icarus! Haha

    I think its "ick-a-rus" from Greek mythology. As in, he who flew too close to the sun.

    I don't mind the name personally but agree that "icky" could be an unwanted name name

    I like the nickname Ike! I was worried about the only nn being icky but Ike works well!
