ideas like Chester

[name]Hi[/name] Berries! I am looking for new name suggestions. I had a long list of names (some I liked and some not) and the only two DH liked were [name]Arthur[/name] and [name]Chester[/name]. Neither sound nice with our last name that ends in -er. I really love the idea of [name]Chester[/name]… it is known and classic without being popular or trench at all! Everyone can spell and say it. It, sadly, just doesn’t sound right. Could you suggest some more names along the same lines at [name]Chester[/name] that I could ask DH about? Thanks!!
