Help us think of a boy name!

Hello Nameberry people!

This is my first post. We find out in 4 weeks if we are having a boy or girl. We cannot even agree on a short list of boy names at this point so I’m seeking your help.
My husband won’t do names in the top 100 and we both prefer gender specific, old fashioned names, that have obvious spellings. Our last name is [name_m]Brown[/name_m]. We already have a DS named [name_m]Arthur[/name_m] [name_u]James[/name_u]. If we have a girl we feel fairly settled on [name_f]Mavis[/name_f] [name_f]Anne[/name_f] (nn [name_f]Mae[/name_f]).

Some names we’ve talked about:
[name_m]Clifton[/name_m] (I don’t love it, hubby is a fan of nn [name_m]Cliff[/name_m])
[name_m]Ike[/name_m] (seems like a nn and not full name to me)
[name_m]Walter[/name_m] (hubby didn’t like)
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u], [name_m]Marshall[/name_m], [name_m]Kent[/name_m] (we considered these for DS and don’t love or hate them)
[name_m]Edison[/name_m] (I love, hubby hates)
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] ( I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u], but top 100)

We’d also like to avoid A names so people don’t think we are doing an A theme.

Any insight or suggestions would be super appreciated!

[name_m]Ike[/name_m] as a nickname for [name_u]Michael[/name_u] ([name_u]Michael[/name_u] is popular but if he went by [name_m]Ike[/name_m] he’d be fine)
[name_m]Edward[/name_m] nn [name_u]Teddy[/name_u]

[name_u]Wallace[/name_u] and [name_m]Edward[/name_m] are nice. I also like [name_m]Edmond[/name_m].

Some ideas…


If you’re considering [name_m]Clifton[/name_m], what about [name_m]Clifford[/name_m]?

Other suggestions:
[name_m]Vincent[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Vince[/name_m])
[name_m]Garrett[/name_m] (nn [name_u]Gary[/name_u])
[name_u]Stanley[/name_u] (nn [name_m]Stan[/name_m])
[name_m]Richard[/name_m] (I think this is really cute with [name_m]Arthur[/name_m])
[name_m]Harold[/name_m] (nn [name_m]Harry[/name_m])

I like the suggestion of another [name_m]Ed[/name_m] name instead of [name_m]Theodore[/name_m]. I also like [name_m]Clifford[/name_m], [name_u]Wallace[/name_u], [name_m]Simon[/name_m], [name_m]Conrad[/name_m] and [name_m]Richard[/name_m] with [name_m]Arthur[/name_m].

Otherwise, how about:

[name_m]Philip[/name_m] “[name_m]Pip[/name_m]”
[name_m]Christopher[/name_m] “[name_u]Kit[/name_u]”

I’m seeing a lot of names I would possibly like, I’ll run them past hubby this weekend and see what we can agree on! Thanks!
