Brother for Mila

I can’t seem to decide on a name for baby boy due next month. [name_f]Sister[/name_f]'s name is [name_f]Mila[/name_f]. Short list is:


Middle name will be [name_u]Michael[/name_u]. I tend to like more classic, old fashioned, even “old man” names. Names that I’ve considered in the past but have since discarded are [name_m]Gabriel[/name_m], [name_u]Theo[/name_u], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], [name_m]Leo[/name_m], and [name_u]Finn[/name_u]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_m]Jack[/name_m] as well, but we have a cousin whose middle name is “[name_m]Jackson[/name_m]” and we want to avoid any unnecessary “name stealing” drama. Husband loves [name_m]Atticus[/name_m], but it might be a little too trendy for my taste.

Would appreciate any input or other suggestions! Boy names are driving me crazy.

I love [name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Michael[/name_u]!

Hmm… To me, [name_m]Jasper[/name_m], [name_u]Everett[/name_u] and [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] are all very trendy/modern names; not at all classic or ‘old man’. I’ll give you some suggestions but I’m not sure I have your style quite narrowed down so forgive me for the wide variety!

[name_m]Julian[/name_m] ‘[name_m]Ian[/name_m]’
[name_u]August[/name_u] ‘[name_u]Gus[/name_u]’
[name_m]Desmond[/name_m] ‘[name_u]Desi[/name_u]’

Like any of these? Good luck!

[name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] together!

[name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Michael[/name_u] are perfect!! I love that pair.

I really like [name_f]Mila[/name_f] & [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] together! [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] [name_u]Michael[/name_u] is very handsome. I like [name_u]Everett[/name_u] but I don’t think it goes well with [name_f]Mila[/name_f], if that is important to you.

[name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] are DARLING together!

Also thought of:

[name_f]Mila[/name_f] and [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] are perfect together!!! no contest.

Thank you for all the suggestions! I guess the reason I consider [name_u]Everett[/name_u] a bit more old fashioned is because every time I’ve mentioned this name to family, they’ve mentioned that [name_u]Everett[/name_u] has an “older” feel.

I like [name_u]Dean[/name_u], [name_m]Colin[/name_m], and I’ve always had a soft spot for [name_m]Wes[/name_m] but can’t seem to get husband totally on board.

As another suggestion, what do you guys think of [name_u]Elliot[/name_u]? My sister suggested it, and it’s starting to grow on me as a softer alternative to [name_u]Everett[/name_u].

Thank you again for all your input! It’s been very helpful.

[name_u]Everett[/name_u] [name_u]Michael[/name_u] sounds awesome!

It sounds like [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] has a bit more of the classical feeling you are going for - a great suggestion by your sister (I like it a fair bit more than [name_u]Everett[/name_u]). I have a male cousin named [name_u]Ellery[/name_u], which you might like as it feels old english to me, but perhaps it has swung to the girls.

[name_m]Nathan[/name_m] and [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] are both nice names. I love the nickname [name_m]Nate[/name_m] but neither really stand out to me.

I agree with Katiem333…

Also agree with others that [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] and [name_f]Mila[/name_f] is cute, and it’s the best of your first choices thrown out there.

I also like [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] better than [name_u]Everett[/name_u], and better with [name_f]Mila[/name_f].

[name_m]Nathan[/name_m] is a fine name, but also kinda ‘meh’ compared to your other choices.

I wonder if you would like [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]? Seems similar (maybe) to [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] and the style you described. I like [name_u]Arlo[/name_u] and [name_f]Mila[/name_f], too, but I still like [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] best.

I think [name_m]Jasper[/name_m] and [name_f]Mila[/name_f] go together so well.
