My husband and I are expecting our first child in [name]July[/name]. His fatherly intuition had him convinced we were having a girl. We decided on the name [name]Dorothy[/name] and had nicknamed our little fetus [name]Dot[/name] the past few months. We also threw around plenty of boys names too, but nothing charmed us the way [name]Dot[/name] did. This [name]Tuesday[/name] we discovered we’re expecting a boy. Having grown up in a house of girls, I’m excited at the prospect of a boy, but the name issue still lingers and causes huge debates.
Any good name suggestions for turning our little [name]Dot[/name] into a boy? I’m currently very partial to the name [name]Declan[/name] and my husband is open to it too since he’s a big [name]Elvis[/name] Costello fan. We like old man and vintage names and we’re also partial to pretty traditional names. We have three cats named [name]Lloyd[/name], [name]Bernice[/name] and [name]Vera[/name] if that helps
Besides [name]Declan[/name], names we’ve considered:
[name]Oliver[/name] (he thought it was too popular)
[name]Neil[/name] (he loves [name]Neil[/name] [name]Young[/name], I’m not a fan of the name)
[name]Walter[/name] (like it, but don’t love it)
[name]Calder[/name] (he hates it)
[name]Elliott[/name] (husband thinks it’s very popular?)
