Older boy's name with southern flair
Hi there, I'm new-ish around here and am expecting #3. This time around, I'm not finding anything that I love and could use some help!
We already have Hugh Augustin James and Georgiana Claire Evangeline. They go almost exclusively by Gus and Georgiana. I really like older sounding names with a southern flair (we live in the south). I like British names, too.
We don't want another G name, and our last name is similar to Shafer.
My current list for boys is:
Garner - not sure how I feel about names ending in -er with a last name like Shafer.
Rupert - is this one usable outside of the UK?
Beau - too little to stand on its own?
Edmund - Love this one, but don't want it shortened to Ed. I like Ned, though.
Robinson - I want to honor my dad, Robert, and was thinking about using his name as a middle name. This one means "son of Robert", though, so it could work as a first. Rupert is also a form of Robert.
I'm open to suggestions and would love to see what y'all think of my current list and what you can come up with! Thanks so much!
