Having a baby is one of the true joys in life and one of the greatest experiences there is. Each pregnancy comes with its up and downs and each is different from the previous and the next. It doesn't matter if the baby is a girl or a boy, when you hold it, you are just happy it is here and healthy. One stress though that can linger for some parents is the pressure of what to name the child. Picking a name for some can be easy, and picking a name for others can take days, weeks, or months. When it comes to boys in Idaho, what is the most common name to name your baby?

My wife and I are currently having a baby boy, and with this being our third one, we are struggling with a name. Most people seem to have one or two boys' and girls' names ready for their children, but the more of one gender you have, the tougher it gets. We have always enjoyed unique names, and are struggling to find one that fits this time. This list is helpful to throw out and try, but typically we look to avoid the common names. Finding a good name that flows, has a good and fitting meaning, and is a strong name is a lot to line up, but as parents, it is our job to find something that will define our future son. Suggestions are always welcomed, and perhaps the other end of this list will be more helpful since those names are less common.
