[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all! I got some helpful advice here with my first child, a daughter who we ended up naming [name_f]Margot[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] (last name is [name_u]French[/name_u] and starts with an M). I could use some input on our top choices for her baby brother’s name!
Currently, my husband is enamored with [name_u]Remy[/name_u] and he considers it the frontrunner. I really like [name_u]Remy[/name_u], but I’m not feeling positive that of all the names in all the world, it’s the best/right one for our only son. I have opposite issues with [name_u]August[/name_u] and [name_m]Anthony[/name_m]: I love the nickname [name_u]Gus[/name_u] but not as in love with August; I love the name [name_m]Anthony[/name_m] but not as in love with [name_u]Tony[/name_u]. And “Rapha” has been my secret dream boy name for ages, but we live in [name_u]California[/name_u] and my husband thinks it might be seen as appropriative of Latinx culture (which we do not have in our background). I think with the “ph” it just looks European, but interested in thoughts there as well. Like with [name_u]Gus[/name_u], that one is really more about my love for Rapha than it is for [name_m]Raphael[/name_m]. If it affects your thinking at all, this child is more likely to be brown-haired and brown-eyed with olive skin than a blondie, but I suppose there’s always the chance!
Would love to hear any thoughts you might have, whether short or longwinded! Thank you!
