hi – i am driving myself crazy trying to name a boy due in ten weeks. i’ve always been so fascinated by names, now that i have to pick one i am totally incapacitated.
my husband is a little more conservative than i am name wise so we are trying to find a classic name that isn’t too popular. i want it to be recognizable as a name with history, without there being several others with the same name in his class.
the short list is probably:
griffin (family name)
i really like henry and oscar a lot. a lot of my family seems to dislike oscar (although i’m not sure i care), henry feels right, but i’m worried it is becoming too popular. this is my first child so i don’t have a good sense of the other names out there (other than from the ss website).
anyway, any thoughts appreciated.
