Brother for Owen

I’m having another baby!

We’re actually finding out in a few weeks, but hubby isn’t wanting to discuss names much more until then, so I’m turning to you name nerds!

Our son is [name_u]Owen[/name_u] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] who is occasionally called O. ([name_f]My[/name_f] nephew is [name_m]Lewis[/name_m] or we’d probably consider that)

Our current ideas are [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] or [name_m]Harvey[/name_m]. I love [name_m]Leo[/name_m], but hubby isn’t keen.

I also like [name_u]Beckett[/name_u], [name_u]Everett[/name_u], [name_m]Harrison[/name_m], [name_m]Lawson[/name_m] and [name_u]Carson[/name_u].

Any ideas for us? Thanks Berries!

Hi again!

Here are my thoughts-

Jonah-I really like this for you. It has a similar vibe to [name_u]Owen[/name_u]. It’s manly yet gentle. Simple, old fashioned but not dated.

Harvey-I can’t get into this one, but can see the appeal. [name_m]Just[/name_m] sounds a little too geeky somehow.

Beckett-I don’t mind it, but kind of like the idea of it more than the sound if that makes sense. The nn [name_u]Kit[/name_u] is fun though.

Everett-Pretty popular if that bothers you, but a good solid name. [name_m]Just[/name_m] not super exciting.

Harrison-I like this one. It’s handsome & strong. I especially like it for the nn [name_m]Hank[/name_m], but [name_u]Harry[/name_u] is also cute.

Lawson-Ooh, that’s nice. It has a very similar vibe to [name_u]Owen[/name_u] as well. And is simple but not over done.

Carson-You’d think it wouldn’t make sense for me to like [name_m]Lawson[/name_m] but not [name_u]Carson[/name_u], but alas, I don’t care for [name_u]Carson[/name_u]. It sounds harsher, & a little more trendy.

Here are a few more ideas that you may like:

Kai-was this on your list at one point? [name_f]My[/name_f] sister met a family w/twins named [name_f]Mae[/name_f] & [name_u]Kai[/name_u] recently, by the way!

Linus-too close to [name_m]Lewis[/name_m]?

Levi

Lloyd

Martin

Niall

Niles

Shea

Shaw

Tristan

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:

Congrats! I love [name_m]Harvey[/name_m], [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] and [name_u]Beckett[/name_u]

Leo is too close in sounds to [name_u]Owen[/name_u] for me with the predominant O sound. I also don’t love [name_u]Jonah[/name_u] with [name_u]Owen[/name_u] for the same reason but it’s less obvious than [name_m]Leo[/name_m].

Good luck
