Flapper Boys Names


We did the girls - now its time for the boys!


Boys names seem to fluctuate less than girls name so some of them are still quite popular today. They probably always will be. But there is nothing wrong with that. Classic names are well liked by everybody. Even those that opt for ultra-modern names tend to resort to these timeless favourites in the middle spot. And they come with an abundance of nicknames. I mean how cute is a little Alby from Albert!


There are also others that are due for a comeback. But all of them have the touch of sophistication to boot.


Otis and Henry are my favourites aside from the obvious Edward. In fact you might see me posting about a small one of these in about 6 weeks time.


Enjoy!

Marvelous! Clarence and Ernest are both in my top ten, but quite a few of those are really wonderful.

(My problem with using either Clarence or Ernest in real life has to do with nicknames -- Ernie is much too much connected to Sesame Street and what would you call a little Clarence?)

I cannot warm up to Otis. It just seems like the name of a town fool or something. From this list, I do like,


George
Richard
Paul
Arthur
Albert
Clarence
Theodore-the best part about this name is its tons of nn options
Clifford-I have always liked this.It has a rugged feel and Cliff is adorable.
Calvin
Everett-I love this with the nn Rhett
Cornelius-I do like this, though its hard to shorten. Corn is really bad, I guess maybe Neil?
Sterling
Truman-with the nn True
Ambrose
