I have been majorly crushing on the name Wells. I think Well and Wells make for great Will alternatives. Well, that Wells name sure got me thinking of all the fabously names that Well could be a nickname for. You’ll notice that many are surname names with English origins. Be sure to tell me your favorites
Boswell is an English name meaning well near the woods. Boz would be a great nickname if you’re looking for a Well/Wells alternative.
Hartwell is a place name and English name meaning one who lives near the stag’s spring. I love Hart as a male middle name. Smoosh Hart and Well together and you get a preppy cool name!
I love “Max” names and Maxwell, ranked at Number 133, is the most popular name on this list. A Scottish name meaning great stream, I love that you could get the familiar Max or fresh Wells from it.
Oswell is an English name (like most of these names are), and it means divinely powerful. I love Oswell as an OSwald alternative and how adorable is the nickname Ozzy on a little guy?
A little bit preppy and a little bit rock-n-roll. Rockwell is an English name meaning rock spring. Rock and Rocky would be awesome nicknames!
Samwell is one of those surnames that there are disputed meanings for. There is a musician named Samwell, born Samuel. Samwell gives me Samwise vibes and has the familiar and lovable Sam to it.
Wellington has such a posh, distinguished sound. A surname and place name, Wellington means people in a hamlet near the temple. It’s a big name with a lot of character.
Well, which Well name is your favorite?
