A Brother for Ethan

We currently have a 2.5 year old who is [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m], last name one syllable sounds like ball.

Currently pregnant with boy #2. We struggled with boy names last time and still are this time!

Currently we have:

Last time we liked [name_m]Lincoln[/name_m] and [name_m]Jackson[/name_m] but we find those a little too popular where we are (yes I realize the irony as we named our son [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] :D)

My paternal grandfather’s name is [name_m]Smith[/name_m]. We may want to work in a namesake.

Also, my middle name is [name_f]Ann[/name_f] and so is my mother’s, her mother’s, my mother in law’s, etc. Anyone have any idea of namesakes that could be created there would be helpful as we don’t plan on trying for a daughter and end up with another son :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance!!

[name_u]Grey[/name_u] sounds too short with your ln. I like [name_u]Sutton[/name_u], but it’s very rhyme-y with [name_m]Ethan[/name_m]. [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] rhymes too, but the extra syllable helps.

[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] &

[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u]/[name_u]Sutton[/name_u] [name_m]Smith[/name_m]
[name_u]Sullivan[/name_u]/[name_u]Sutton[/name_u] [name_m]Anders[/name_m]

Some namesakes for [name_f]Ann[/name_f]:
[name_m]Hanan[/name_m] - in the same family tree, means gracious
[name_m]Zayn[/name_m] - means beauty, grace ([name_f]Ann[/name_f] means favor, grace)
[name_m]Esmond[/name_m] - means grace, protection
[name_m]John[/name_m] - means Yahweh is gracious
[name_m]Miles[/name_m] - could mean either gracious or soldier

Maybe [name_u]Grey[/name_u] [name_m]Esmond[/name_m], [name_u]Sutton[/name_u] [name_m]John[/name_m], or [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] [name_m]John[/name_m].

I love, love, love, [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u]. He suggestion of [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] [name_m]Anders[/name_m] is fantastic.

I like [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] best from your options

I’ve always loved [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] as a brother name to [name_m]Ethan[/name_m]

[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] & [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Anthony[/name_m]
[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] & [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] [name_m]Anton[/name_m]
[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] & [name_m]Hugo[/name_m] [name_m]Smith[/name_m]
[name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] & [name_u]Hartley[/name_u] [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m]

Of your options I like [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] best. [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u] [name_u]Andre[/name_u] maybe? Other first name ideas: [name_m]Gavin[/name_m], [name_u]Elliott[/name_u], [name_m]Wyatt[/name_m], [name_m]Landon[/name_m], [name_u]Logan[/name_u], [name_u]Glenn[/name_u]. Good luck.

I like the suggestion of [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] and [name_m]Jacob[/name_m]! I also like [name_m]Caleb[/name_m], [name_m]Samuel[/name_m], [name_m]Daniel[/name_m] and [name_m]Matthew[/name_m].
