I’m due with my first little one [name]April[/name] 28th and can’t seem to find a name I love. We’re having a boy and he’ll be the first grandchild on either side. The last name is [name]Simpson[/name] so any names ending with a similar sound are out for the sake of sounding too rhymey. Names ending with an S sound also seem to jumble into [name]Simpson[/name]. My maiden name is [name]Russell[/name] however it’s not that important to incorporate. My husband, [name]Ryan[/name], is dead set on [name]Thomas[/name] [name]James[/name]. [name]Thomas[/name] is his middle name and grandfather’s first. [name]James[/name] is my grandfather, mother, and his father’s first name. I think it’s a perfectly fine name, just a bit boring. On the plus side there wouldn’t be any quizzical looks when I introduce the little guy. [name]Ry[/name] is open to suggestions and would negotiate if I brought a name to the table that he likes.I’d prefer a masculine name, easily recognizable, somewhat traditional or rooted with history, however a bit obscure. For [name]Ry[/name], the biggest factors are easy to understand, manly, and not a dog name (although he does like the name [name]Rex[/name]. Go figure. Lol) We briefly agreed on [name]Emmett[/name], but I’m beginning to find it a bit feminine. [name]Ryan[/name] is from [name]Arizona[/name] and that’s where we met. I’d like to include a name with a Southwest [name]Arizona[/name] feel but not cowboyish. (I love [name]Tucson[/name], [name]Ry[/name] hates it) Names I like include [name]Abraham[/name], [name]Cillian[/name], [name]Everett[/name], [name]Xavier[/name] or [name]Javier[/name], [name]Ryker[/name], [name]Malachi[/name], [name]Nikolai[/name], and [name]Milo[/name].
If we were having a girl she’d be Hasley [name]Olive[/name]. My mom’s maiden name and my favorite color. [name]Ryan[/name] loved [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Jane[/name] (yes he found the OJ [name]Simpson[/name] reference quite funny) I also liked [name]Adelaide[/name], [name]Sedona[/name] ([name]Sadie[/name] for nn) and [name]Amelia[/name].
Help! Any suggestions would be immensely appreciated.
