Re: What do you think? - Baby boy name "Spade"

It's not my favorite, but it's not bad. I like the suggestions of Cade!

I think of an offensive slang term. Sorry mama.

I think shovel or "hit in face with a spade". Not good connotations, personally.

I can usually appreciate names even if I dislike them, but I can't find anything good to say about Spade. I think he'd get made fun of. Plus, Spade James doesn't sound very nice at all. I LOVE Ryder's name! Some other less common names... Pierce, Hayes, Gray, Judd, Ivan, Reid, Quillan, Emmett, Calder, Alden, Teague, Finnegan, Deacon.

Definitely an offensive slang term. I know that's not how you meant it, Mama, but no, I don't think it's an okay name

Sounds like "Stone Phillips" to me ... you should do what you want. Many times children with unusual names grow up and it becomes an advantage for them, especially in work as people tend to remember unusual names.

My


(he he - btw my boys all have traditional names ... but again, you should do what works for you.)

I agree with the posters about the offensive part. If you aren't familiar, it is on par with the N word.
