Modern Boys' Name Generator

Here's how to find a non-traditional name for your boy that blends creativity with conformity in just the right combination:

(1) Choose your favorite consonant phoneme. (this is the creative part!)
(2) Append the suffix "-ayton". If you don't like "-ayton" you can try "-ayden" instead. (this is the conforming part-- your kid's name will rhyme with half the other boys' names!)

So far I've seen "Payton", "Trayton", and "Clayton", as well as "Jayden". Still unclaimed, I think, are "Mayton", "Hayton," "Shayton" and "Wayton". But it's only a matter of time before people run out of unused phonemes and have to turn to these latter names in order to keep up the creativity level.
