A brother for Brenna...

My husband and I are having a really tough time coming up with names for our first son - all of the names we’ve liked seem to be so overused ([name]Ethan[/name], [name]Jacob[/name]/[name]Jake[/name], [name]Jack[/name]) or we don’t like the nn associated with them ([name]Connor[/name] ([name]Con[/name]), [name]Nathan[/name] ([name]Nat[/name])). Our last name is Irish and begins with an R. Our daughter’s full name is [name]Brenna[/name] [name]Nicole[/name]…both kids will be 19 months apart. Any ideas???

Let’s see…


[name]Beckett[/name] (B theme, though)

[name]Non[/name]-Irish, along the lines of [name]Nathan[/name] and [name]Jack[/name]:

[name]Elliot[/name] (nn [name]Eli[/name])
[name]Edward[/name] (nn [name]Teddy[/name])
[name]Nathaniel[/name] (nn [name]Ned[/name], also a nickname for [name]Nathan[/name], along with [name]Nate[/name])



Good luck!

I like the suggestion for [name]Myles[/name]. Goes well with [name]Brenna[/name].

I love the name [name]Brenna[/name]! I will put stars by my faves to go with [name]Brenna[/name]. Sometimes my fave names that go with [name]Brenna[/name] are not Irish. I am putting the names together because I love them both so much that I figure they go together.
[name]Andrew[/name] nn [name]Drew[/name]
[name]Finnian[/name] nn [name]Finn[/name]
[name]Lionel[/name] nn [name]Leo[/name]** This is a name I love as much as I love [name]Brenna[/name].

[name]Brenna[/name] [name]Nicole[/name] and…
