So, you guys said I should put my names out and you’d help me combine them… here goes!!!

Most Important People to [name]Honor[/name]:
[name]Thompson[/name] (mom’s maiden name… thought about using [name]Thomas[/name])

Others I would love to honor:
Beaumont (love [name]Beau[/name])
*those i’d most like to honor from the “less important people” section

Some of his favorites:
[name]Dashiell[/name] nn [name]Dash[/name]
[name]Lincoln[/name] nn [name]Link[/name] (maybe use just [name]Link[/name], in the middle)
and pretty much anything else you can think of from Pixar, video games, or comics

Some of my favorites:
[name]August[/name] nn [name]Augie[/name]/[name]Gus[/name]
[name]Wesley[/name]/[name]Westley[/name]([name]Princess[/name] [name]Bride[/name] was the first movie we watched together, and like the nn [name]West[/name])

Others we like:
[name]Bruce[/name] (baby dances whenever he hears the boss!)

Some combos I like:
[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Nick[/name]
Vonnoh [name]James[/name] [name]Orlando[/name]
[name]Bruce[/name] [name]Maxfield[/name]

New Development: my husband said we can use [name]James[/name] as the first name if he can have [name]Lincoln[/name] or [name]Link[/name] in the middle… this is very appealing to me, [name]James[/name] is an absolute favorite of mine, and [name]Link[/name] is one of his. I’d kind of rather use [name]Link[/name] than [name]Lincoln[/name], but not sure about that. Also, I’d want to have one of our really meaningful names with it, since neither of those actually mean anything to us, we just love them. Having a hard time coming up with a combo, though

Sorry for such a long, complicated list! I’m due the 23rd, so we really need to figure this out! Poor kid isn’t going to get named until he’s a month old!

Oh, also, the last name is [name]Becker[/name]!

[name]James[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Rowe[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -sounds presidential.
[name]Thompson[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Cloud[/name] [name]Becker[/name] nn [name]Tom[/name]
[name]Alfred[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name] [name]Taylor[/name] [name]Becker[/name] nn [name]Alfie[/name]
[name]Archie[/name] [name]Becker[/name] sounds kind of like [name]Archie[/name] Bunker. But maybe many people have forgotten about him.
[name]Archibald[/name] [name]Earl[/name] [name]Maxfield[/name] [name]Becker[/name] nn [name]Archie[/name]
[name]George[/name] Vonnoh [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -this sounds presidential, too.
[name]George[/name] Vonnoh [name]Sullivan[/name] [name]Becker[/name]. I really like [name]Sullivan[/name] as a middle name. I will try it as a first:
[name]Sullivan[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Drake[/name] [name]Becker[/name] nn [name]Sully[/name]. I really like this one!
[name]Sullivan[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Nick[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -very handsome.
[name]James[/name] Vonnoh [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -sounds important and handsome. I really love [name]Lincoln[/name] in there!
Beaumont [name]August[/name] [name]Sullivan[/name] [name]Becker[/name]. [name]Beau[/name] [name]Becker[/name]. Sounds fine to me.
[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] [name]James[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -love this!
[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] Vonnoh [name]Becker[/name]
[name]Wesley[/name] [name]James[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name]
[name]Thomas[/name] [name]Drake[/name] [name]Montgomery[/name] [name]Becker[/name]
[name]James[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Becker[/name]
[name]James[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -I really like [name]James[/name] with [name]August[/name]. Beautiful!

Ooohh! Fun! :slight_smile: I’m going to play around with [name]August[/name] before I go to bed, and get to the rest tomorrow.

More later!

Thank you for your wonderful suggestions! I especially love:

[name]James[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Rowe[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -it DOES sound presidential! I love this!
[name]Thompson[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Cloud[/name] [name]Becker[/name]- Sounds fantastic, but I don’t think I could handle [name]Thompson[/name] as a first name
[name]Sullivan[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Drake[/name] [name]Becker[/name] nn [name]Sully[/name]- same as above
[name]Sullivan[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Nick[/name] [name]Becker[/name] -ditto
[name]James[/name] Vonnoh [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name] - love this one!
[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] [name]James[/name] [name]Becker[/name] - I love it! but I would only use [name]Frederick[/name] in first, because the reason I like it is for the nn [name]Freddy[/name]
[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Frederick[/name] Vonnoh [name]Becker[/name]
[name]James[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name]- [name]LOVE[/name] this! just gorgeous

[name]August[/name] [name]William[/name] [name]Nick[/name]- love it, too simple for the husband though, which is the problem with all the [name]William[/name] names, so even though I love them, I’m leaving them out :frowning:
[name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Nick[/name]- [name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] is great together, love this
[name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Rowe[/name]- we [name]BOTH[/name] absolutely love this!
[name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Frost[/name]- this is fantastic, i really love [name]Frost[/name]
[name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]James[/name]- [name]LOVE[/name]! really, realllly love! we both love this, too

I think we’re pretty sure that the first name will be either [name]James[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name], or [name]August[/name]. We’re loving [name]James[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Rowe[/name], [name]James[/name] [name]Robert[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name], [name]James[/name] Howland [name]Cloud[/name], [name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]James[/name], [name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Rowe[/name], [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Nick[/name]… and the one I just thought of last night and is completely making my heart sing and I think I finally have that “this is it!” feeling, is [name]James[/name] [name]Cobalt[/name] [name]Cloud[/name]. My mom always collected cobalt blue glass, and she always had it in our big bay window when I was a kid, and the light would shine through and look so beautiful… and so this name reminds me of that, and summer time and happiness and all good things. It makes me pretty giddy. What do you think?

I think that [name]James[/name] [name]Cobalt[/name] [name]Cloud[/name] has some great posibilities!! Nice :slight_smile:

[name]James[/name] [name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]Becker[/name]-I really like this, too, [name]Lyndsay[/name].
[name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Nick[/name]- I love this one!
[name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Rowe[/name]- This one is probably my favorite, because the [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Rowe[/name] combination sounds so sophisticated and unique.
[name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Frost[/name]- This one is fantastic, too!
[name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]James[/name]- I love, love, love this one, too!

Of the above, my favorites are [name]August[/name] [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Rowe[/name] (I’ll pay you to use this one) and [name]August[/name] [name]Lincoln[/name] [name]James[/name] (I’ll pay you for this one, too, but not as much). For me, [name]James[/name] is just too ordinary compared to [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name]. ([name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name], I love you!) That said, I’ll go with any of the [name]August[/name] or [name]Dashiell[/name] combos, because I think they’re heads above the rest.

[name]James[/name] [name]Cobalt[/name] [name]Cloud[/name]: This one does flow, but for me, it doesn’t do anything. This, of course, means nothing, because he isn’t my baby, and I’m not the one with the warm cobalt memories.

For me, the other names are unique, regal, and sophiticated, while [name]Cobalt[/name] [name]Blue[/name] is unique but too earthy/nature-related. It has a Native American sound, and doesn’t sound right with [name]James[/name]. Something just seems “off,” and the name sounds too feminine to me. (I don’t know many men who would like to have an ethereal middle name like [name]Cobalt[/name] [name]Cloud[/name].) I could see using [name]Cobalt[/name] or [name]Cloud[/name], but not both of them at once. [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]Cobalt[/name] [name]James[/name] is nice.

That said, if it makes you feel giddy, go for it! I’m going to come up with some more [name]August[/name] and [name]Dashiell[/name] combos later… :slight_smile:

What do you guys think of [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]David[/name] [name]Rowe[/name]? [name]David[/name] is his dad, and his brother’s middle. [name]Rowe[/name] is my Grandpa, Uncle, and brother’s middle. And [name]Dash[/name] is probably our favorite first name.

[name]Dashiell[/name] [name]David[/name] [name]Rowe[/name] [name]Becker[/name]. That sounds wonderful! If he ever has a little brother, you can name him [name]August[/name].

I really love [name]Dashiell[/name] [name]David[/name] [name]Rowe[/name]! What a great choice! :slight_smile:
