Which of these baby boy names do you like best?
I’m just looking for opinions on some of the names we have shortlisted for a baby we are expecting! We put a long list together and have whittled it down to a shorter list and now want some other people’s opinions.
Also, our surname is Penrice.
Danny (or Daniel?)
Niall or Nile
Thanks for your help ;)

As for names .. My choice would be -
🔸Joe (or Joseph) Penrice
Flows well, a strong classic name that suits a little boy and a grown man.
🔸Ben (or Benjamin) Penrice
Traditional - possibly a bit too much with Ben Pen
🔸Daniel Penrice - Also flows well, a strong classic name that suits a little boy and a grown man.
In my opinion Xavier, Josh, Jasper, Mac & Nile don't have the same class or appeal as the other names.

Jasper! It’s more unique but not in a weird bad way :)

Josh is a nickname for 'Joshua'.
Ben is a nickname for Benjamin'.
Danny (or Daniel?) Definitely 'Daniel'.
Mac is the Scottish Gaelic for 'Son of .. '
Niall or Nile Spelled as 'Niall' is Irish Gaelic (Erse) for Neil . In the Erse language it is still pronounced as 'Neil' NOT ' Nile'.
Fpr me it is 'McNiall' ; the 'son of Neil'.

Given your surname, I personally think that Joe or Josh Penrice sounds good. Would you go with the full names (ie Joshua and joseph) or just joe and josh?
