Boys names that End in ‘O’

Since the Boys names ending in ‘Y’ seemed like such a hit, I thought I’d toss out all those lovely -O enders I’ve collected. I love the letter O. So lovely to write out, so pretty to see.  No, I do not use O and 0 (zero) interchangeably. Even Josephine’s got it down already. 4:00 is four, zero, zero to her, not four, oh, oh.  I used to get smacked for it both at home & at school. “Zero is a number, O is a letter!”  Told you my Pop insisted on precise wording!   Anyhoo…

Those O ending boys. They feel comfortable, friendly, and accessible.  I have quite a few favorites ending in O and used my most favorite one of all years ago. I don’t think it’s too weird to have two boys ending in o, particularly, especially with the years between them.

 

They all have something… I don’t know what to call it –  attitude, charm, a happy vibe – soemthing like that. So without further ado, here for your enjoyment, the ‘O’ boys   :
