Double Letter Names - 2012 Boys


I covered double letter names for girls here... now it's time to cover the boys! There are over 100 less boy double letter names in the Top 1000 for 2012 than girl ones, with 138 before combining spellings (116 after). There's also no real commonality between the boy names like -lynn and -ee are for the girls. That gives us a lot of different names to consider! Not wanting to list all of the 138 names, here are some that jumped out at me:

Aaron
Alessandro
Apollo
Atticus
Barrett
Beckett
Bennett
Brennan
Brett
Briggs
Brooks

Channing
Collin
Connor
Cooper
Cullen

Madden
Maddox
Marshall
Matteo
Matthew
Maxwell
Mitchell
Otto
Rhett
Rocco

  1. Grandma and Grandad names have been on the rise the past few years. The Gertie's and Doris's are no longer only found in the local bingo hall, they are on roundabouts wearing their mini Boden. Alfred's and Stanley's are not just betting on horse races, they are trying to put marbles up their nose whilst watching Cars for the 8th time.indian names
