need some help on a name
Me and my husband have a little baby boy named Blake, we just found out we are expecting. I want to keep the B letter going or else keep the five letter name. I like Braxton but my husband likes Raylan but i think thats more of a girls name but he doesn't agree, looking at other names to come up with something i think I'm starting to really like Brady (still have to see if my hubby likes it though) we have a middle named picked, it is going to be Steven after my dad, i could use some good ideas, i don't want a name too popular but not to off the wall, living in the country a more country name would be nice, but right now i just want one we can agree on, help me please!:D
How about Breccan? Blake and Breccan? I don't know how well Breccan would fit with Steven but it seems to meet your other requirements. Baxter? Brenner? Bridger? Just a few suggestions. Good luck!
I like the 5 letter approach myself. What about:
My first thought was Brayden or Bayden.
Or other b names:
Or the eternally classic Ben (i like ben short and simple but u could also go with Benjamin, Bentley, Benton, Benji)
5 letter names with Blake could be:
Brady Steven seems like a perfect choice.
But just in case, here are the names that popped into my head:
Brayton -- a surname of someone I know; never seen it as a first name, but you seem willing to push barriers :)
Also Waylon (as in Jennings), but it doesn't fit the B theme or the five letter theme. Maybe there's another spelling for it that's five letters?
I still like Brady better than any of these, especially with Blake.
I love Brady. It's a great name!
Other suggestions... Bastian, Branson, Beau, Boone. I don't think Raylan is too feminine. I went to high school with a guy named Ryland and he didn't get much flack for it. Personally, I wouldn't choose matching names, but if you go that way make sure they don't sound alike otherwise.
I think Blake and Brady is nice, as well as Blake and Bastian.
I prefer the 5 letter approach. I think it leaves you with more options should you have more kids in the future. It's also more subtle than a B theme.
Suggestions for 5 letter names:
Blake and Brady sound nice together. Here are a few more suggestions:
Flynn (as suggested earlier)
Miles (as suggested earlier)
My favorite combo: Blake & Keith
