I voted for [name]Julian[/name]! I like [name]Dominic[/name], but I don’t think it works as well with your last name and I don’t like short form [name]Dom[/name].

I think [name]Julian[/name] i very handsome, but the only potential downside is that it might be seen as slightl feminine (it is a name used for girls as well, and it is also similar to julia or juliana).
That said, I would be sure to choose a decidedly masculine middle. Some suggestions:
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Charles[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]James[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Robert[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Isaac[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Adam[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Arthur[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]William[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]

[name]Hi[/name] everyone! Thank you for voting and thank you, Jlm, for suggesting some middle names! I agree that with [name]Julian[/name] a masculine, traditional middle name would be better, because of the girls’ names [name]Julia[/name], [name]Juliet[/name], and [name]Juliana[/name], etc.

We are still somewhat undecided…those of you who are voting, could you please post and say why you chose the name that you chose? It would be a big help.


I really like [name]Dominic[/name] and [name]Julian[/name] so it was hard for me to chose. I voted [name]Dominic[/name] in the end because I thought it sounded better with your last name but now I’m not sure…

I’ll stick with [name]Dominic[/name] (although I love [name]Julian[/name]!) and suggest some combos:

[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Jude[/name] [name]Fennel[/name] - best of both worlds right?
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]James[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]John[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Charles[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]George[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Noah[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Hugh[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Lee[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Sean[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Gene[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Neil[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]

Any of these your style? If not I’ll try again:)

Good [name]Luck[/name]!

[name]Hi[/name]! I think that both [name]Julian[/name] and [name]Dominic[/name] are great names, but I ended up choosing [name]Dominic[/name] because it feels a bit more masculine to me than [name]Julian[/name]. (I was in need of a deciding factor, and that was the only one I could think of.) :slight_smile: I do think they’re both wonderful, and you honestly can’t go wrong.

Best wishes! :slight_smile:

I chose [name]Julian[/name]. My partner actually suggested that name to me. So I dont think it is too feminine! We are certainly thinking about that name if we ever have a boy…
good luck!

[name]Julian[/name] [name]Dominic[/name] would be a nice combination, actually, if you didn’t want to save one for a future son.

Anyway, I suggest:
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Eli[/name]/[name]Elijah[/name]/[name]Elias[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Adrian[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Jerome[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Dominic[/name] [name]Nathan[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]

I chose [name]Julian[/name]. I think [name]Jules[/name] is a great nickname for a boy, a la [name]Jules[/name] [name]Verne[/name], the French author.

[name]How[/name] about:

[name]Julian[/name] [name]Robert[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Raymond[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Richard[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Andrew[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Matthew[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Francis[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Samuel[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]

Sorry for any repeat suggestions!

Hello again! I am so sorry it has taken me so long to get back here. :frowning: The reason I have been so stressed about this is that I am probably not going to have any more kids…but at last the decision is made!! We’ve decided on [name]Julian[/name]–[name]Julian[/name] [name]Isaac[/name] to be precise! [name]Isaac[/name] was a name we had considered but vetoed as a first because it is my husband’s brother’s name–and now we are honoring him in the middle! Thank all of you for your feedback, and for helping us make this huge decision!

– [name]Paloma[/name]

Wow! I really love [name]Julian[/name] [name]Issac[/name]! :slight_smile:

Good luck!

Also: that’s not to say I won’t be hanging around here any longer, even after my baby is born! I love this site and I love what you do here.

Thanks again, to all of you!!! :slight_smile:

I chose [name]Dominic[/name] because I love it with your last name. But I love [name]Julian[/name], too.

[name]Dominic[/name] [name]James[/name] [name]Fennel[/name]

I’m glad you’ll stay! :slight_smile: I absolutely love your name, by the way.

I love Nameberry, too! :slight_smile:

Take care!

I go to school with a [name]Dominic[/name] and his brother is called [name]Rhys[/name] and I think [name]Dominic[/name] [name]Rhys[/name] [name]Fennel[/name] is a nice combo. Also like [name]Julian[/name] but yeah it’s a bit too feminine.
