Boy #2!

We just found out that we are expecting baby boy #2! DH and I are kind of stumped on what to name this little guy. Older brother is [name_m]Bennett[/name_m], and I should add that I really like surnames for first names. I don’t like super common names, but nothing too out there either. A few names that I like and that dh hasn’t completely vetoed include [name_u]Theo[/name_u], [name_m]Declan[/name_m], and [name_m]Garrison[/name_m]. Does anyone have any suggestion? Or thoughts on the names I’ve listed? I feel kind of lost!

Going off the surname vibe:


I like [name_m]Declan[/name_m] a lot! Thanks too for posting all the surnames, what an awesome list!!

Thanks for that list! I actually really like a few of those. Especially [name_u]Lennon[/name_u], just not sure it works with our last name. Thanks again!

I have a [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] too! Others I would use:


Here’s a little list to help you find some inspiration!


I like [name_m]Gannon[/name_m], but dh said no. Also, I’m being pulled towards [name_u]Emerson[/name_u], but is it being used more for girls these days? Thank you for your list!


[name_m]Bennett[/name_m] is a cool name choice. I also love surnames for boys.

From your list I like [name_u]Theo[/name_u] best.

I like these names with [name_m]Bennett[/name_m]:


Bennett and Calvin
Bennett and Donovan
Bennett and Griffin
Bennett and Hudson
Bennett and Meyer
Bennett and Ramsey
Bennett and Spencer
Bennett and Sullivan
Bennett and Tobin “Toby”
Bennett and Wesley


I really like [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] with [name_u]Gray[/name_u]!

Thank you, everyone! Your suggestions have helped immensely. So far I’m still loving [name_m]Garrison[/name_m], but also liking [name_m]Edison[/name_m], [name_u]Gray[/name_u] (or [name_m]Grayson[/name_m]), [name_m]Holden[/name_m], and [name_m]Lawson[/name_m]. I’m seeing a trend here, all the “son” endings. :slight_smile:

I love the name [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] so much! One name I thought of that I don’t see mentioned yet is [name_m]Hayes[/name_m]. I think [name_m]Hayes[/name_m] and [name_m]Bennett[/name_m] are nice for brothers because they’re similar stylistically but don’t sound similar at all.


[name_m]Montgomery[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Monty[/name_m])

Like any of these? Good luck :slight_smile:
