"New" Names for the New Year…

    Actually, they’re not new at all, haha–they’re all old favorites!–but they might be “new” to coming back onto my list. WDYT of Daniel and Noah?

    I feel like I’m regressing more to my earlier tastes in boys’ names–the mainstream Biblical ones–and I saw both of these on my computer screen at work in the past couple of days (weeks?) and I can’t seem to get them out of my head! I’m a bit worried that they’re both too mainstream/boring, but Noah especially so (not just boring and mainstream, but also really trendy. Is Noah the bad kind of trendy?). I also had a former classmate (frenemy!) who named her son Noah, which is another issue I’ve had. I’m not sure I can ever truly love Noah, because I always think of her. If I could just disassociate from her, I think I’d be fine, haha. I’m really loving both, though–if you came across a little Daniel or Noah on the street, what would you think? Do you think they go well with Caleb, Everett, Asher, Jack, Grayson, Avery, Bailey, Samuel, Boaz, Zane, Declan, Grant, etc.?

    I’m not terribly set on combos, but I sort of like Daniel Florian and Noah Atticus right now.

    Not a big fan of Daniel, but Noah is growing in me , although I would probably use it as a middle name seeing as it’s quite short. I kind of think Noah Asher and Noah Avery go together quite well, but Everett, Grayson, Bailey and Grant, sound a bit too much like surnames to me and Zane just reminds me of 1 Direction (shudder :(). It would probably be better if the middle name didn’t start with an ‘a’ sound or a vowel, seeing as Noah has an ‘a’/ vowel ending. I kind of think that Noah Tyler and Noah Sebastian (can’t believe I’m suggesting such a mainstream mn :p) sound quite good though.

    i like daniel and noah. i dont see how a classic biblical name can be considered bad trendy. i think daniel is a nice name. im a bit biased because it is my cousins name but i think its a great name for a boy. i dont like dan however. and because the name is so common, many guys go by dan and that makes it seem boring. i was never the biggest fan of noah. im hesitant on boys names ending in ah for some reason. but its a good name. ive never met a noah. this actually would have been my name if i were a boy. noah howell. howell being a family surname. i dont like florian or atticus but i think a more unique middle name such as these would spice up the classic feel of daniel and noah. actually noah atticus is a great sounding combo.

    I absolutely love the name Noah, its very popular over here in the UK, but what the heck, its a gorgeous name nonetheless. Daniel has never really been on my list and I have never really liked it. There’s no particular reason I don’t think, its just not really my style. However I do really like the flow of Daniel Florian, it sounds quite aesome actually. Noah Atticus, beautifully classic. I love the name Atticus, mainly for my love to To kill a Mockingbird

    Thanks, ladies! I’ve thought of doing Daniel Noah, as well, but I feel that as unexpected as Noah is as a middle, pairing two such popular names together is still rather uninspiring.

    I’ve essentially decided to add Daniel to my list–I’m just searching for the perfect combo! I think I’ve got it down to this handful of options:

    Daniel Alaric
    Daniel Auguste
    Daniel Cato
    Daniel Ewan
    Daniel Florian
    Daniel Ziven

    I feel like I’m leaning toward Daniel Florian, but I don’t want to let the other five go! I have ties to the majority of them, and I think they all really spice up Daniel and make him fun. le sigh. But Florian does have the most significance–Daniel and Florian both have subtle ties to my mom, so together, I feel like they honor her pretty well, and Florian is a name that is apparently used with some regularity in Switzerland and Germany, which could honor my German/Swiss ancestry pretty well. Plus, my fondest memories of my mom are her in her flower gardens, so it just seems perfect! But in my search to put my OCD mind to rest, I’ve come up with five other options I really, really love and don’t want to let go. le sigh. Why do I do this to myself? :)

    I’m still really loving Noah, but not quite to the same degree. I’m also toying around with Micah and Judah. I met a guy named Judah today, and he wore it so well! I met him for like a second, but it was so cool seeing it on an actual person. I love the imagery I get with it, too–all lions and bravery and the King of the world and Aslan, too. I think it sounds pretty fab with my surname, too (“Roberts”–not exact, but it sounds pretty close).

    I like the name Daniel, but its my nephew’s name so I can’t use it for my own children. I like your combos of Daniel Alaric, Daniel Auguste, and Daniel Florian. How do you pronounce Ziven? Is the “i” a long or short vowel sound?
    I like Noah, but it seems to be getting really common. I work in schools and there have been multiple boys named Noah.

    Ziven is actually ZEE-vehn. It’s a Polish name, go figure. :) I like that it means “alive”, and I adore Polish names! I think it’s a bit too odd for me to use it up front, but I think it’s spunky and fun as a middle for something as classic as Daniel.
