Baby Brother for Rowan

Hello!

I am expecting a second baby boy in Feb to join big brother [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] and am looking for a name we both like. We’ve decided we don’t want it to start with R and probably not end in N. Middle name will be [name_m]Douglass[/name_m] and the last name is Scottish and begins with G. The names we were considering but ruled out or husband does not like are:

[name_u]Hudson[/name_u]
[name_u]Roscoe[/name_u]
[name_m]Declan[/name_m]
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_u]Dean[/name_u]
[name_m]Beau[/name_m]
[name_m]Bodhi[/name_m]
[name_m]Boden[/name_m]
[name_m]Bennett[/name_m]
[name_u]Chandler[/name_u] (husbands name, doesn’t want to use)
[name_u]Hunter[/name_u]
[name_m]Atticus[/name_m]
Husband doesn’t like any names beginning in B.
[name_m]Duncan[/name_m]
[name_m]Colin[/name_m]

Still considering:
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]
Prather (family name husband likes but I don’t love it)
[name_m]Oliver[/name_m] (a little too common)
[name_m]Henry[/name_m] (Husband probably will not like)

If you have any name suggestions or think we should take another look at one that’s been ruled out, please let me know. Thanks for the help! :slight_smile:

I like [name_m]Archer[/name_m] from your list. Other ideas:
[name_u]Mercer[/name_u]
[name_u]Murphy[/name_u]
[name_u]Campbell[/name_u]
[name_m]Asher[/name_m]
[name_m]Griffin[/name_m] - depending on the alliteration with surname
[name_m]Vaughn[/name_m]
[name_m]Crosby[/name_m]

Actually, the more I think about it, the more I like [name_m]Asher[/name_m]. It has a different beginning/ending, isn’t too common, has slightly softer sounds (like [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] imo). And a great meaning!

Also thought of [name_m]Wesley[/name_m]. That might be my second choice after [name_m]Asher[/name_m].

Thanks for the great suggestions. I especially like [name_m]Crosby[/name_m] which is an extended family surname and [name_m]Griffin[/name_m]. I like [name_m]Asher[/name_m] also but it reminds me of [name_u]Ashby[/name_u] which has a negative association for my family. I am definitely adding [name_m]Crosby[/name_m] and [name_m]Griffin[/name_m] to the list.

I love [name_u]Mercer[/name_u] [name_m]Douglass[/name_m]!!

I love, love, love [name_u]Rowan[/name_u]!
