Need some ideas

My husband and I are going start this summer trying to get pregnant. We have already fallen in love with a few girls names: [name]Quincy[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] and [name]Halle[/name] [name]Grace[/name] (named after my grandfather, [name]Halbert[/name]). We are having trouble coming up with a boy’s name. We both like [name]Isaac[/name] but are wanting to avoid names on the top 100 list for first names. We would like the boy’s middle name to be [name]Robert[/name], a family name. I like [name]Reed[/name], but don’t think it goes wtih [name]Robert[/name]. Any suggestions? And suggestions on the girls names too! :slight_smile: Thanks!

Here are some girls names you may like (although I like your choices and the way you pair the more unisex first with the classic pretty mns). I particularly like [name]Halle[/name] [name]Grace[/name] and its association.


It’s hard to suggest boys names because I don’t really have any idea of what you like. Perhaps you can give us some names you’ve considered or a style you are drawn to?

Boys NOT in the Top 100? I’m just going to throw out random names. You can tell us how you feel about them and maybe that’ll help us suggest further…
I’m liking a lot of the three syllable names with [name]Robert[/name] in the middle…

[name]How[/name] about:
[name]Oliver[/name] #118 - nn [name]Ollie[/name]
[name]Harrison[/name] #219 - nn [name]Harris[/name]
[name]Bryce[/name] #116
[name]Micah[/name] #123
[name]Nolan[/name] #131
[name]Edward[/name] #142 - nn [name]Ward[/name]
[name]Elias[/name] #157 - nn [name]Eli[/name]
[name]Asher[/name] #206 (back to back R’s don’t sound that great, though)
[name]Zane[/name] #235
[name]Ezekiel[/name] #241 - nn [name]Zeke[/name]
[name]Dawson[/name] #269
[name]Theodore[/name] #295 - nn [name]Theo[/name]
[name]Easton[/name] #302
[name]Felix[/name] #354
[name]Bennett[/name] #361 - nn [name]Ben[/name]
[name]Isaias[/name] #496

I love [name]Isaac[/name]! Your girls’ names are so pretty.

You picked some names I love, but I can’t use. [name]Evan[/name]- my maiden name is [name]Evans[/name], but my husband doesn’t like [name]Evan[/name] (I have always wanted to use it though). And [name]Piper[/name]- love it, but already used it on my dog! :slight_smile: And my cousin just named her daughter [name]Hadley[/name].

Here are a few boy names I like if that helps give suggestions:

mn- [name]Robert[/name] or possibly [name]James[/name]

[name]Isaac[/name] really is our favorite, but I’m just worried that it’s getting too popular and will only get more popular in coming years. Plus, I’m a teacher and trying to come up with names is HARD! I have an association (usually negative) with so many names!

Girls names like [name]Quincy[/name]:

[name]Romilly[/name] (nn [name]Romy[/name])

Boys (not all of which work with [name]Robert[/name]):


[name]Augustin[/name] [name]Robert[/name]
[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Robert[/name] (not if your last name has two syllables, though)
[name]Elias[/name] [name]Robert[/name]
[name]Gideon[/name] [name]Robert[/name]

[name]Benjamin[/name] [name]Robert[/name] and [name]William[/name] [name]Robert[/name] come to mind, too, but they’re in the top 100.

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Thanks for all the ideas! You guys are awesome!
