Name help for baby number 2

We are expecting a son this fall and are starting to think about names. [name_f]My[/name_f] wife prefers to have the middle name [name_m]Preston[/name_m] (it’s a family name) so that seems set. If we go with that I’d prefer a name starting with A, so we would share initials. [name_f]My[/name_f] top choice is [name_u]Asher[/name_u], but she is not sold.

Others I like are:
[name_m]Archibald[/name_m] ([name_m]Archie[/name_m])
[name_m]Adrian[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m]

Archer ([name_m]Archie[/name_m])
[name_m]Abram[/name_m]
[name_m]Anthony[/name_m]
[name_m]Andrew[/name_m]
[name_u]Auden[/name_u]
[name_m]Anders[/name_m]
[name_m]Albus[/name_m]
[name_m]Albert[/name_m]
[name_m]Albie[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]
[name_u]Alfie[/name_u]
[name_m]Atticus[/name_m]
[name_u]Arden[/name_u]
[name_u]August[/name_u] ([name_u]Gus[/name_u])
[name_m]Augustus[/name_m]
[name_u]Augustine[/name_u]
[name_u]Artemis[/name_u]
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u]
[name_m]Amadeus[/name_m]

I love the name [name_u]Asher[/name_u]. Then, in order, [name_m]Arthur[/name_m], [name_m]Archie[/name_m], [name_m]Archibald[/name_m] “[name_m]Archie[/name_m]” and [name_m]Adrian[/name_m].

Have you looked at [name_u]Asa[/name_u], [name_m]Andrew[/name_m] or [name_u]Ashby[/name_u]?

Adrian
[name_u]Alden[/name_u]
[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] (Second favorite!)
[name_m]Angelo[/name_m]
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u]
[name_u]Artemis[/name_u] ([name_m]Arty[/name_m]) ([name_m]Favorite[/name_m]!)
[name_u]Ash[/name_u]
[name_u]Asher[/name_u]
[name_u]August[/name_u]
[name_m]Axel[/name_m] (Final [name_m]Favorite[/name_m]!)
I’m really vibing with the name [name_u]Artemis[/name_u] [name_m]Preston[/name_m]! Beautiful and strong name!

Asher [name_m]Preston[/name_m] is a nice combo. Some A names I like/love are:

Atticus
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u]
[name_u]August[/name_u]
[name_m]Archie[/name_m]
[name_m]Atlas[/name_m]
[name_m]Angus[/name_m]
[name_m]Alastair[/name_m]
[name_m]Ambrose[/name_m]
[name_m]Amias[/name_m]
[name_m]Archibald[/name_m]
[name_m]Anders[/name_m]
[name_m]Axel[/name_m]
[name_m]Apollo[/name_m]
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]
[name_m]Albert[/name_m]
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m]
[name_m]Alfred[/name_m]

My favourites would be either [name_u]August[/name_u] [name_m]Preston[/name_m], [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] [name_m]Preston[/name_m] or [name_m]Atlas[/name_m] [name_m]Preston[/name_m].

Asher is such a handsome name!
