We are in desperate need of help. We just found out that we are expecting our third son (fourth child). While this is terribly exciting, we are seriously stumped for names.
Here are the names of our other children:
[name]Thyra[/name] [name]Denali[/name] ([name]Thyra[/name] rhymes with [name]Keira[/name])
[name]Malachi[/name] [name]Terence[/name] ([name]Malachi[/name] - OT bible name/[name]Terence[/name] was chosen for a family member)
I’m not sure that we have a “style” exactly, except that we like names that are unique, without being too “out-there”, and names that are hopefully not just trendy.
We are not too concerned about sibsets except that because our 3 boys will be fairly close in age, ([name]Thyra[/name] is much older than our boys), so I think it’s best not to choose two names of a certain style while the third is very different. To complicate things, our last name is [name]Brown[/name], which I have realized makes naming very difficult because I tend to like a lot of one syllable names, and I also am very drawn towards word names. It’s hard to have a first name that is a word, when the last name is a word, because all of a sudden the name starts sounding sentence-like!
Here is a short list of some of the names we like, but none of these really stand out, and some of them probably aren’t very usable:
[name]Titus[/name] (See below)
[name]Ezekiel[/name] (We love this, although I’m not sure we can have two OT testament/bible names names and not the third)
I am also of [name]East[/name]-[name]Indian[/name] descent so we are not opposed to an [name]East[/name]-[name]Indian[/name] first or middle name. Any ideas you can give us would be greatly appreciated!!
