Brainstorming boy names and I’m stuck on Tate. I can’t figure out if I really like it or not but come back to it a lot.

Other names in the mix are Samuel or Jesse.

DS is Theo, last name is two syllables beginning with E.

It is but it’s also Tate according to urban dictionary


Either way it’s enough to be a no for me!

Not a fan.

Samuel goes very well with Theo as a sibset.

Samuel, Jesse and Theo are lovely names without connotations. Tate just screams bay boy to me OP. I wouldn’t pair it with such a lovely name as Theo.

I know a little Tate who is a nice kid. It is fine. I quite like Samuel too

I love Tate.

Sam is Better. I'm biased though.

I teach a few Tates. Alluding to the other thread, I find it a bogan name sorry.

It's OK.  A different style to Theo.

Samuel and Jesse are a better fit IMO, though again Tate is OK.

I adore the name Jesse and don't mind Samuel.

Jesse is my favourite of your list . wish I'd used it for one of my boys.

I know a girl called Tate! Maybe spelled Tayte.

I'm not a fan at all.

No, is it even a name or is it an abbreviation? Nathan with NN nate would be better. But otherwise Samuel and Jesse are much nicer

Nathaniel - Nate
Samuel - Sam

I'm not a fan of either Tate or Jesse, sorry.
