Oh my Oops. Need some name help!

Our last baby was supposed to be our last. All name lists had faded from my mind. But surprise to us, we’re expecting again. Now we must once again go through the agony of finding names we can agree on.
Here are a list of names I love but DH isn’t crazy about. I’m hoping you all can give me some suggestions?

[name_m]Maddox[/name_m]
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]
[name_m]Declan[/name_m]
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]
[name_m]Axel[/name_m]
[name_u]Mason[/name_u]

The middle name would be either [name_u]Jay[/name_u] or [name_m]Edward[/name_m], so preferably something that will flow well with either or both of those.

Congrats! We have some overlap… My son is [name_u]Owen[/name_u] M@ddox, and [name_m]Archer[/name_m] and [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] are high on my list for a brother.

I like [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u], [name_m]Maddox[/name_m], and [name_u]Mason[/name_u] best with your sibset. Hmm along those lines, maybe [name_u]Lennox[/name_u], [name_m]Knox[/name_m], [name_u]Dexter[/name_u], [name_u]Calder[/name_u], [name_u]Logan[/name_u]…?

For whatever reason, he’s anti-most names that have X’s in them anywhere. Which is silly considering he has one in his name. But…yeah, I’ve tried [name_m]Axel[/name_m], [name_u]Dexter[/name_u], [name_m]Knox[/name_m]…all big fat no’s.
I like [name_u]Logan[/name_u] though. We considered that for our last son’s name.

[name_m]Ah[/name_m]. [name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_u]Owen[/name_u] or [name_u]Finn[/name_u] from your sig? Maybe [name_m]Madden[/name_m], [name_m]Nolan[/name_m], [name_m]Ian[/name_m], [name_m]Lucas[/name_m]/[name_m]Luke[/name_m], [name_u]Spencer[/name_u], [name_m]Wesley[/name_m]/[name_m]Wes[/name_m], [name_m]Liam[/name_m], [name_u]Reid[/name_u], [name_m]Ronan[/name_m], [name_m]Graham[/name_m], [name_m]Grant[/name_m], [name_u]Emmett[/name_u], [name_m]Bennett[/name_m], [name_m]Wyatt[/name_m], [name_m]Vaughn[/name_m]…?

[name_u]Corey[/name_u]
[name_m]Abel[/name_m]
[name_u]Hudson[/name_u]
[name_u]Luca[/name_u]
[name_u]Kai[/name_u]
[name_m]Ian[/name_m]
[name_m]Cooper[/name_m]
[name_u]Nico[/name_u]
[name_m]Isaac[/name_m]
[name_m]Grayson[/name_m]
[name_m]Jett[/name_m]

Dh doesn’t like First names that end in N, thinks it’s too rhymey with our last name.
Makes it even harder since so many of the names I like the most end in N lol

I like [name_m]Declan[/name_m] and [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]. I suggest:

[name_u]Dallas[/name_u] [name_u]Jay[/name_u]
[name_u]Dallas[/name_u] [name_m]Edward[/name_m]
[name_u]Dustin[/name_u] [name_u]Jay[/name_u]
[name_u]Dustin[/name_u] [name_m]Edward[/name_m]
[name_m]Ramsey[/name_m] [name_u]Jay[/name_u]
[name_m]Ramsey[/name_m] [name_m]Edward[/name_m]

Based on [name_u]Parker[/name_u] [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] and [name_m]Cole[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m]:

[name_m]Wyatt[/name_m]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]
[name_m]Bennett[/name_m]
[name_u]Grady[/name_u]
[name_m]Levi[/name_m]
[name_u]Emmett[/name_u]
[name_m]Zeke[/name_m]
[name_m]Tucker[/name_m]
[name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m]
[name_u]Evan[/name_u]
[name_m]Heath[/name_m]

I’m looking for first names that don’t end in an N. Those get vetoed instantly :frowning:

i like [name_m]Ramsey[/name_m] but because of Game of Thrones DH would never like it haha.

I’m not a fan of the show, but have heard people here on NB explain why. It pisses me off because I love the name. I’ll ask you this though: how many people actually watch the show and will remember the name in 5 years?

[name_m]Maddox[/name_m]- Too close to [name_f]Mia[/name_f]
[name_m]Archer[/name_m]- Too close to [name_u]Parker[/name_u].
[name_m]Declan[/name_m]- [name_m]Declan[/name_m] [name_m]Edward[/name_m] would fit in very nicely with your sibset!
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]- A bit too vintage, when I compare it with [name_u]Parker[/name_u] and [name_m]Cole[/name_m].
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]- Not liking the -er with [name_u]Parker[/name_u].
[name_m]Axel[/name_m]- Too macho.
[name_u]Mason[/name_u]- Not a fan with [name_f]Mia[/name_f].

[name_f]Zoe[/name_f], [name_u]Parker[/name_u], Annalyn, [name_m]Cole[/name_m], and [name_f]Mia[/name_f]… So why not just avoid names beginning with Z, P, A, C, and M? I’d also avoid occupational names with [name_u]Parker[/name_u]. With the exception of Annalyn, your names seem slightly modern, but not overly so ([name_m]Ryder[/name_m], [name_u]Pax[/name_u], [name_m]Maddox[/name_m], [name_m]Dax[/name_m], etc. would stand out). Ok…
[name_u]Sterling[/name_u]
[name_u]Blaise[/name_u]
[name_m]Bennett[/name_m]
[name_m]Beckett[/name_m]
[name_m]Ezra[/name_m]

[name_u]Jude[/name_u]
[name_m]Jonas[/name_m]

[name_u]Reid[/name_u]

[name_m]Silas[/name_m] – to [name_m]Cyrus[/name_m] or [name_u]Elias[/name_u]
[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] – to [name_m]Samuel[/name_m] or [name_m]Seamus[/name_m]
[name_m]Axel[/name_m] – to [name_m]Ansel[/name_m]
