With any name, you’ve got to have a nickname picked out as well, so I’ve included some ideas for those as well. Enjoy!

My Favorite Boy Names

When I get complimented on Baylor’s name I always say, “Thank you! It was literally the only name my husband and I agreed on!” That is 100% the truth. We didn’t name Baylor until he was born but it wasn’t for lack of trying. The whole 10 months of pregnancy I would compile list after list, send countless texts to my husband, and read baby name books everyday. The only name we agreed on was Baylor.

Here are some of my favorite names that didn’t make the cut.
