Help? :o) Any ideas and comments are appreciated!

I <3 [name]Sinclair[/name] and [name]Ferdinand[/name] both, but I think [name]Sinclair[/name] makes a better first name for a ‘[name]Hogan[/name].’

[name]Just[/name] going to put down the names that I really love out of your list!

[name]Kingsley[/name] - wasn’t on your list but I definitely like it and it is a variation of [name]Kingston[/name]

There are soooo many great names out there to choose from so good luck!

[name]Carter[/name] and [name]Dante[/name]!!

[name]Evander[/name] - [name]EVE[/name]-and-er.
[name]King[/name]/[name]Kingston[/name] - [name]King[/name] is a family name
Lynley - another variant of mom’s name

I love these names! Though I would make the names such as;
[name]Wilder[/name], [name]Sterling[/name], [name]Ryder[/name], [name]Rumer[/name], [name]Rex[/name], [name]Pheonix[/name] and [name]Dodge[/name] MN’s

My favourite for FN would be [name]Gage[/name], [name]Evander[/name] and [name]Kingston[/name].
