Which of these baby boy names do you like best?

Hi there,

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 ;)

    Firstly... Congratulations 

    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.

    Good luck.

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

    Josh is a nickname for 'Joshua'. 


    Ben is a nickname for Benjamin'. 

    Xavier Yes!!!

    Jasper   Yes!!! 

    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?
