My husband and I are searching for a great name that will pair well with big brother, [name]Bryton[/name] [name]Denali[/name]. We love our [name]Bryton[/name]. His name is a combo of his grandpas [name]Bruce[/name] and [name]Layton[/name]. It’s also a reference to [name]Brighton[/name] [name]Beach[/name], a place of importance to our family. Obviously, we aren’t shy about using a unique/unusual name.
We also love nicknames- [name]Bryton[/name] is most often Bry. While his name is unique, it is not difficult to spell or say.
Our current top contenders are:
I love [name]Finley[/name]- and the nickname [name]Finn[/name]. My only worry is that it seems to be used more as a girl’s name in the USA. I think it could be one of those names that takes off in the next few years, but for girls, not so much for boys. While I don’t mind a gender neutral name, I also don’t want our little guy to be stuck with what is considered to be a girls name here in the States. What’s do you think when you hear [name]Finley[/name], boy or girl? Perhaps [name]Finian[/name] or [name]Finnegan[/name] would be better? But neither of those works well with [name]Jackson[/name]…
My husband loves [name]Lawson[/name]. It makes sense for us for a few reasons. [name]Henry[/name] [name]Lawson[/name] is a famous Aussie poet/author. My husband is Australian. (Flinders is a mountain range in South Australia- Flinders is also the person that first mapped and named Australia.) But, I don’t know about the nickname “[name]Law[/name].”
[name]How[/name] does [name]Lawson[/name] work, thoughts?
Any other input/ideas are welcome (even if you trash [name]Finley[/name] or [name]Lawson[/name])!
