Here are my thoughts-
Rueben-Well, I like it a lot w/Deacon. But I think maybe [name_m]Reuben[/name_m] is more correct?
Noah-Very nice strong solid name. Sooo popular though.
Shepherd-I think it’s interesting, but just have a hard time hearing it as a name. More of a profession.
Archer-I guess that’s a kind of profession too, but it’s more established as a name. It’s cute, & totally perfect w/Deacon. Kind of quiet but quirky & a little sporty.
Julian-I love it! It’s been one of my favorites for years & years. It’s smart & posh, but sweet & friendly too. A little bit different style than [name_m]Deacon[/name_m] if you ask me, but I don’t think they clash.
Milo-Super cute. Spunky, a little quirky but classic & handsome.
Forest-I don’t love it for whatever reason, but it’s interesting & goes w/Deacon.
Sawyer-Kind of fun. A little cowboy-y, which I like for you.
Wells-It’s okay. It seems like it’s missing something. I think I like it betters as a nn for [name_u]Maxwell[/name_u].
Waylon-Meh, I don’t love this one. It just sounds like a cranky old Southern man. It’s not Southern in a fun way like [name_m]Deacon[/name_m] & [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u].
Gabriel-A beautiful classic. Kind of popular. Sort of biblical next to [name_m]Deacon[/name_m], but I think it works fine. [name_m]Deacon[/name_m] & [name_m]Gabe[/name_m] would be nice.
Taylor-Meh. This seems really dated & kind of boyish.
Reese-Also better for a boy in my opinion. Very trendy for a girl.
Delia-Beautiful! Simple, elegant, slightly exotic, simple but not over done, grows up well. All of the good stuff. Kind of match-y w/Deacon? Maybe a bit.
Clementine-Aw, I love this one. It’s classic & spunky. Feminine, bold, adventurous, well known but not popular.
Alice-Another smart beautiful classic. Kind of a quieter name. I really like it.
Bayla-I don’t know. Something about it sounds off. Like, not like a name. I think I’d at least do [name_f]Baila[/name_f].
Rosalie-Sooo cute & perfect w/Deacon.
Amy-That’s kind of fun & refreshing. I like it, but like [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f] best for you!
Hope this helps.
