Tying up Loos Ends With

We’ve got two boys names picked out that I am in [name]LOVE[/name] with-

[name]Merrick[/name] [name]Liam[/name]
[name]Callen[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] ([name]Cal[/name])

[name]Just[/name] wondering what you all think! Also, any ideas for nn for [name]Merrick[/name]? [name]Ricky[/name] would be kind of cute, but it conjures up two different images… cute and playful (lime rickeys, 50s soda shop era, the little boy from the dick van dyke show) and as well it seems old and dated… I would love to overlook the negative connotation! What do you think of [name]Ricky[/name]?
