HELP! We can't come up with a name for our 4th.

We never had difficulty with the other three, ([name]Karson[/name], [name]Everett[/name] and [name]Hadlee[/name]), but we are having such a hard time naming our soon to be son. The middle name will most likely be a family name of [name]Robert[/name] or [name]William[/name]. Here are some that we are considering, but please feel free to add any thoughts or ideas… We don’t want anything close to being common (hate hearing so many [name]Karson[/name]'s already, but it was a combo of our first names), and I really like strong masculine names.

[name]Callum[/name] (husband is warming up to this one)
[name]Pierce[/name]
[name]Tate[/name] (loved this one, then someone at husband’s work used it last month)
[name]Jude[/name]
[name]Dane[/name] (haven’t read good reviews on this one)
[name]Levi[/name] (worried about it being too trendy soon)
[name]Creed[/name] ([name]LOVE[/name] this, but be honest, do you only think of the band?)
[name]Miles[/name]
[name]Breckin[/name]
[name]Penn[/name] (this is part of my maiden name)
[name]Bodhi[/name]
[name]Abram[/name] (abe) or (bram)

[name]Callum[/name] - an absolute classic.
[name]Pierce[/name] - it just sounds a little violent to me …
[name]Tate[/name] - I am not a fan.
[name]Jude[/name] - I adore.
[name]Dane[/name] - the sound of this one doesn’t grab me, and I’m afraid I am reminded of the dog breed.
[name]Levi[/name] - this does seem to be becoming trendy …
[name]Creed[/name] - I dislike the trend for unsubtly religious word names, such as [name]Trinity[/name], [name]Destiny[/name] and [name]Heaven[/name], and unfortunately this reminds me of them.
[name]Miles[/name] - I have never been a fan of this one, but a lot of people see to like it.
[name]Breckin[/name] - I am not enamoured with this one.
[name]Penn[/name] - this seems strange to my British ears … like a biro?
[name]Bodhi[/name] - seems open to teasing; body?
[name]Abram[/name] - I quite like it.

My favourites are by far [name]Callum[/name] and [name]Jude[/name] - both are lovely!

[name]How[/name] about :
[name]August[/name]
[name]Duke[/name]
[name]Cormac[/name]
[name]Chad[/name]
[name]Charles[/name]
[name]Edmond[/name] (although too close to [name]Everett[/name], I think)
[name]Dashiell[/name].

I hope I helped!

[name]Callum[/name]- classical and goes with lots of mns
[name]Pierce[/name]- think of a weapon when I hear it which might not be the best for a baby
[name]Tate[/name]- reminds me of a Tater Tot
[name]Jude[/name]- classy and stylish
[name]Dane[/name]- I think of the dog unfortunately
[name]Levi[/name]- not one of my favorites but if you like it, I don’t have a solid reason to counter it
[name]Creed[/name]- sorry, it’s the band for me
[name]Miles[/name]- Nice
[name]Breckin[/name]- have never heard of it and not sure I like the sound of it
[name]Penn[/name]- it’s okay
[name]Bodhi[/name]- same as [name]Breckin[/name]
[name]Abram[/name]- rings well

Favorites are [name]Callum[/name], [name]Jude[/name] and [name]Abram[/name]

First of all, I’d dump these as they definitely seem to be rising up the charts:

[name]Callum[/name]
[name]Levi[/name]
[name]Miles[/name]
[name]Breckin[/name]
[name]Bodhi[/name]

I think these would go the best, stylistically, with your other kids’ names:

[name]Pierce[/name]
[name]Tate[/name]
[name]Dane[/name]
[name]Creed[/name]
[name]Penn[/name]

[name]Callum[/name] - not my favorite. I like [name]Malcolm[/name] better.
[name]Pierce[/name] - is great and think would work well with your other childrens names.
[name]Tate[/name] - I like it better as a middle name or a nn for [name]Tatum[/name] which is a girls name. It does work though.
[name]Jude[/name] - it sounds nice with your childrens names.
[name]Dane[/name] - I like it but not with your childrens names. What about [name]Drake[/name] or [name]Devin[/name]?
[name]Levi[/name] - I like your other names better.
[name]Creed[/name] - I actually think of a character ( his real name too) off of the show The Office (in the US). I like it!
[name]Miles[/name] - works well but I like some of your other names better with your childrens names.
[name]Breckin[/name] - Hmm, I’m neutral. It reminds of [name]Berkeley[/name] or [name]Beckett[/name]. I really like [name]Berkeley[/name] and think it would work well all though it does have the “lee” ending like [name]Hadlee[/name]. [name]Burke[/name] and [name]Brooks[/name] are nice names too. [name]Brooks[/name] would work.
[name]Penn[/name] - neutral.
[name]Bodhi[/name] - I love the meaning of this name a LOT. However [name]Bodhi[/name] does remind me of [name]Brodie[/name], which I don’t like. I do think [name]Bodhi[/name] sounds good with your other childrens names but it’s a different style. That doesn’t really matter though.
[name]Abram[/name] -I can also see this one working.

My favorites - [name]Pierce[/name], [name]Jude[/name], [name]Creed[/name], [name]Bodhi[/name], and [name]Abram[/name].

I love the Twinkle’s suggestion of [name]Cormac[/name]!

My suggestions with [name]Karson[/name], [name]Everett[/name], and [name]Hadlee[/name] -

[name]Brooks[/name]
[name]Malcolm[/name]
[name]Devin[/name]
[name]Drake[/name]
[name]Declan[/name] - I like it better than [name]Callum[/name].
[name]Julian[/name]
[name]Porter[/name]
[name]Quinn[/name]

[name]Callum[/name]: I really love this name, but it feels a bit close to [name]Karson[/name] to me. (K sound, two syllables…)

[name]Pierce[/name]: I think this is very handsome!

[name]Tate[/name] (loved this one, then someone at husband’s work used it last month): I prefer some of your other names, but I do think it’s handsome.

[name]Jude[/name]: I really love this with your children’s names!

[name]Dane[/name] (haven’t read good reviews on this one): I’m not personally a [name]Dane[/name] fan. (I’m sorry!) :frowning:

[name]Levi[/name] (worried about it being too trendy soon): [name]Levi[/name] is sadly now 100% [name]Palin[/name]-related to me now, which may be either a good, bad, or neutral connection for you.

[name]Creed[/name] ([name]LOVE[/name] this, but be honest, do you only think of the band?): I prefer some of your other options. (I think of the band, and worry about “Creep” teasing.)

[name]Miles[/name]: I really love this name!

[name]Breckin[/name]: I’m neutral on this one, but I really like [name]Beckett[/name]. (I think that [name]Breckin[/name] reminds me of “broken.”)

[name]Penn[/name] (this is part of my maiden name): I think this is nice…

[name]Bodhi[/name]: I can’t see this with your children’s names.

[name]Abram[/name] (abe) or (bram): I can’t see [name]Abram[/name] with your children’s names, either (I love it, though!), and think some of your other choices work much better with [name]Everett[/name], [name]Karson[/name], and [name]Hadley[/name].

My favorites from your list with your children’s names are [name]Jude[/name], [name]Miles[/name], [name]Pierce[/name], and [name]Penn[/name]. I really love these names! :slight_smile:

[name]Everett[/name], [name]Karson[/name], [name]Hadlee[/name], and:

[name]Blaise[/name]
[name]Declan[/name]
[name]Finnian[/name] ([name]Finn[/name] is becoming popular, though)
[name]Rafferty[/name] (kind of close to [name]Everett[/name], though)
[name]Reed[/name]/[name]Reid[/name]
[name]Shepherd[/name]
[name]Sullivan[/name]
[name]Vaughn[/name]

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Thank you for all of your input. I have actually thought of many of the same suggestions that you made, but most my husband has shot down. You have at least helped me narrow the list I have some more and hopefully more will come up before this baby is born in Feb.

I’m glad we were able to help you out. Good luck! :slight_smile:

Good luck! And don’t forget to let us know your decision :slight_smile:

I like [name]Jude[/name] & [name]Miles[/name]. what about [name]Julian[/name]?

Good luck :slight_smile:
