I have racked my brain for a second boy’s name and just cannot land upon one.

Our first son’s name is Jacoby Eugene. He was named after my mom’s surname, Jacob, and my husband’s grandfather, Eugene. We love the name!  

If we ever have a girl her name will be Annalise Elizabeth after my grandma, Ann Elizabeth. Ann is a family name on my husband’s side, too.

I would like the new little one to have the middle name Stanley after my grandfather.  But we do not have any more male family names to work from for first names. 

We like Liam and Eli but don’t want a popular name. We also don’t want it to be too far out there.

In addition, we’re avoiding names that start with A, D, M, or J. I come from a large family and know how great it is to be able to label things with first initials!

Our last name is short, starts with an S, and has a long ‘ee’ sound, like sea.

So many stories about twenty-first century baby naming trends are dismissive.  They claim parents are trying too hard for their children to stand out and be unique.

Maybe that happens some of the time, but to me it seems straightforward.

With access to all of these fabulous names, why wouldn’t we consider a wider range of possibilities?
