Sibling for Carter!

Pregnant with [name]Carter[/name] [name]Michael[/name]'s brother or sister, due in the fall. We have decided on [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] (nn [name]Carly[/name]) for a girl but cannot agree on a boy name.

So far…

Husband likes:
[name]Gunner[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Carson[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Hunter[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Walker[/name] [name]Michael[/name]

I like:
[name]Logan[/name] [name]William[/name]
[name]William[/name] [name]Michael[/name]
[name]Benjamin[/name] [name]William[/name]

Suggestions? Comments?

[name]Hi[/name]! I love [name]Scarlett[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]! I just realized that [name]Carly[/name] and [name]Carter[/name] are really close in sound…

Husband likes:
[name]Gunner[/name] [name]Michael[/name]: I like some of the others more, and think a name that doesn’t end in er would sound less matchy with [name]Carter[/name].
[name]Carson[/name] [name]Michael[/name]: Because [name]Carson[/name] and [name]Carter[/name] both begin with “Car,” I like some of the others more…
[name]Hunter[/name] [name]Michael[/name]: I can see [name]Hunter[/name] with [name]Carter[/name], but I think a non er name would sound great!
[name]Walker[/name] [name]Michael[/name]: Ditto…

I like:
[name]Logan[/name] [name]William[/name]:
[name]William[/name] [name]Michael[/name]: I love [name]William[/name], but because it ends with an M and [name]Michael[/name] begins with one, the M sounds cancel each other out…
[name]Benjamin[/name] [name]William[/name]: I love [name]Benjamin[/name] (and [name]William[/name]), but can better see a surname with [name]Carter[/name].

I can also see [name]Jude[/name] with [name]Carter[/name]…

Good luck! :slight_smile:

Thanks [name]Jill[/name]! Some very good points.

I agree with trying to find a name that doesn’t end in “er”. Especially if the middle name is also going to be [name]Michael[/name] again(same as [name]Carter[/name]'s) an “er” [name]Michael[/name] just sounds too much like the same name to me.

As of now, he is pretty set on [name]Michael[/name] for the mn and I like [name]William[/name]. [name]Both[/name] are family names, I’m flexible but would prefer to stick with one of these.

[name]Donovan[/name] [name]Michael[/name] (Neither of us love or hate)

[name]Sullivan[/name] [name]Michael[/name] ([name]Don[/name]'t like the possibility of nn [name]Sully[/name])
[name]Weston[/name] [name]Michael[/name] (Not thrilled with it, although I think [name]Easton[/name] might grow on me)
