The final countdown

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] berries! Today is our last day to settle on a name for our final little boy! (As he should be in a few hours.) We haven’t decided on a first name yet, but hoping some middle name suggestions help us choose, and I knew this was the right place! :heart:
At the top of our list right now is [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] and [name_m]Demetri[/name_m]. We have a habit of choosing once we see the baby. But I’d love some ideas!

Here’s some guidelines, but not necessary. We thought “quirky/whimsical” would be best. Husband is an arborist, so earthy names would be good too. Then, weirdly both our other boys ended up with W middle names (Westley and Wolfe) so I guess a W Is bonus, but not necessary.

I suggested Willows yesterday which we both really like the sound of with the names, but my husband said he hates willow trees :joy:

Thank you so much for your help! You guys are the best!

Best wishes for a smooth, safe delivery!

How about [name_m]Warren[/name_m], meaning park-keeper.

Not W names, but [name_u]Cedar[/name_u] and [name_m]Wells[/name_m] also come to mind.

For a W-related nature name, what about [name_m]Walden[/name_m], the original title of Thoreau’s book Life in the [name_m]Woods[/name_m]? [name_m]Wilbur[/name_m], [name_u]Willoughby[/name_u], and [name_u]Wilder[/name_u] also come to mind. Between your two current choices, I think [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] fits really nicely with [name_m]Westley[/name_m] and [name_m]Wolfe[/name_m]! [name_m]Demetri[/name_m] has a very different vibe to me, but if you love it, I think that’s more important than how it fits in a set.

Their names are actually [name_u]Oliver[/name_u] (Westley) and [name_u]Jamie[/name_u] (Wolfe), which I agree, [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] fits better either way, but [name_m]Demetri[/name_m] started as a kind of random suggesting neither of us liked at first and it kept growing on us.

I also didn’t mention that both my dad (who passed away two years ago) and I share the middle name [name_u]Lee[/name_u]. So that’s also a possibility of we go with [name_m]Harrison[/name_m].

It’s just so hard to choose!

I love Harrison!!! For middles,

[name_m]Ah[/name_m] sorry, I missed that those are their middle names! [name_u]Oliver[/name_u], [name_u]Jamie[/name_u], and [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] work very well together. I think [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_u]Lee[/name_u] is really great.

I love [name_m]Harrison[/name_m]! Some middle name ideas (they are all W’s because I think it’s a sweet connection):

[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]Wells[/name_m]
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_u]Walker[/name_u]
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_u]Wiley[/name_u]
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]Willis[/name_m] (because [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m] doesn’t flow great)
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]Warren[/name_m]
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_u]Wyatt[/name_u]

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps! [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite for you is probably [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_m]Wells[/name_m] or [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] [name_u]Walker[/name_u].
