hi all, I came on with help to name my last daughter. We ultimately named her [name]Scarlett[/name]. Our first child is named [name]Sadie[/name]. We did not necessarily intend to do an S theme, it just so happened to be the names we liked. So I’m pregnant again and hoping for a boy. I’m all over the place with boy names and would like some suggestions.
For the longest time, I was sure I’d name our son, [name]Penn[/name], named after UPenn where my hubby and I met. of course, there is the obvious reference to a writing pen. our oldest daughter (she’s 4) said we couldn’t name him [name]Penn[/name] because he’d be all marked up. Of course, there is now the whole Sandusky/[name]Penn[/name] reference. We did name our daughter [name]Scarlett[/name] so it’s like we cant’ get over obvious references to colors, scarlet fever, or the scarlet letter, etc. [name]Penn[/name] is still up there but want to entertain other names.
[name]LOVE[/name], love, love [name]Rhett[/name]. however, it’s out due to [name]Scarlett[/name]. But just to give you an idea of what I like.
Other names that interest me:
[name]Dashiell[/name] (nn [name]Dash[/name]): Does it remind you of a dog? I’ve only met one [name]Dashiell[/name] and he was a dog. What about a reindeer (Dasher)?
[name]Sawyer[/name]: Too trendy? Unisex?
[name]Silas[/name]: Too feminine? Reminds me of Sila/[name]Sela[/name] as in [name]Sela[/name] [name]Ward[/name]. Does this name even mean something?
[name]Asher[/name]: Too jewish. Nothing jewish people/faith/culture, but we are not Jewish and I get asked a lot why we used [name]Sadie[/name] since it’s a jewish name. I think it’s a classic nn for [name]Sarah[/name] which is also a biblical name and pretty classic. But I don’t know I guess I’d be concerned about using overly Russian or whatever type names like oskana and tatiana.
[name]Gable[/name]: interesting but this part of the name of a well known town in our area.
[name]Cruz[/name]: [name]Don[/name]'t know about this one.
Bode: Like it, but will it be mispronounced all the time.
Beau: Dog name? The first dog? Also, with Scarlett, does it just seem too deep South.
Thathcer: Like this a lot, but can you see a little 3 year old Thatcher. Seems very grown up. NN Thatch isn’t too appealin either.
Our last name is Irish. Sounds like Locklin.
