[name]Hi[/name] everyone! I’ve already posted a few times, but as I get closer and closer to my due date I still can’t come to a decision (or even narrow it down enough). I want a name that is not too popular, but that is familiar enough that people won’t think it’s weird. Also I don’t want a name that could go to the girls…I don’t want my son to have the same name as a girl in his class. I do realize this is more of a challenge than it would have been in the past!
Here are the names on my list and my likes/concerns with each one…
[name]Bennett[/name] - I like this and the nickname possibilities
[name]Cole[/name] - Too popular?
[name]Liam[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this, but I fear that it is getting too trendy.
[name]Leo[/name] - I love this name but it feels too short to me, and I’m not really a fan of the longer versions of [name]Leo[/name].
[name]Luca[/name] - I’m afraid this will turn into a girls name because of the feminine ending.
[name]Preston[/name] - My #1 name for quite some time, now I’m second guessing it.
[name]Rhys[/name] - [name]Love[/name] this name and spelling, but I hate the fact that [name]Reese[/name] is a popular name for girls.
[name]Rowan[/name] - Like how this sounds but worried about it being too girly.
Alright now for middle names, I’ve mainly been considering [name]William[/name] (my dad and grandpa’s middle names), [name]James[/name] (a long time favorite), and [name]Patrick[/name] (to honor my grandma [name]Patricia[/name]).
I’m also a big fan of alliteration, my name is [name]Megan[/name] [name]Marie[/name] and while it’s not very unique, I always loved the sound. Last name is [name]Rogers[/name]. I’ve considered the combination of [name]Roman[/name] [name]Rhys[/name] [name]Rogers[/name], but it could be too much R. Then again, my uncle’s name is [name]Randy[/name] [name]Ray[/name] [name]Rogers[/name], and the 3 R’s work for him!!
Anyway if you could give me your thoughts/opinions on my names and maybe come up with some first/middle combos that would be so helpful!! And I’m also open to any suggestions, first or middle.
Thank you so much!!! (and I apologize that this is so lengthy and information filled!)
