Boys Names... Opinions Appreciated!
I did a post on the girls side for opinions so now its time to get some opinions on our boys list! We still haven't told anyone we are pregnant. I will be 12 weeks at the end of the month so we will be doing a big reveal Memorial Weekend when we go to visit family.
We have two children already... Alex@ndra (Allie) and Keeg@n... LN is P@rker Our styles for boys and girls names are VERY different.
Here are our boys names so far (in random order)...
Liam... This is our FAVORITE name this time around and has been on the list everytime we've been pregnant. Keeg@n was my first choice for a boy so we saved Liam for a future baby but now its in the #6 spot. It was #75 the last time we were naming a baby. On top of it being #6, I assuming there are a bunch of boys named William who go by Liam, as well!
Lincoln... Great name. Great nickname. But when I say the full name, all I hear is Linkin Park. My husband tells me no one will remember them in 15 years. It has also been on the list every pregnancy.
Deacon... I think this is in our top 3 but when I say Keeg@n and Deacon together, they almost rhyme. My husband is worried about the religious association. We considered this one with our last child as well.
Lachlan... Great name! My husband worried people won't pronounce it like Lock but more like Lackland. He wants to alter the spelling but I am not on board with that. This has been on the list with every pregnancy as well.
Camden... My husband is a huge baseball guy and grew up watching Orioles play at Camden Yards. We mentioned this name when we were pregnant last time and was told about a crappy place in Jersey that we werent aware of, but it doesnt make us like it any less.
Cullen... This was in our top three when I was pregnant with my son. My son was born May 2008 and when I mentioned Cullen, a friend said "like in Twilight?" At the time, I wasnt aware of Twilight and she explained about the books and how the first moving was coming out November 2008. I did some googling and realized that it had a large following so we decided to put this name on the back burner just in case it exploded due to the exposure from the movie and books. I still really like the name regardless of the Twilight association but I just dont know if I want to deal with people always asking "like in Twilight?" everytime I introduce my baby. lol.
Other names that we liked but have pretty much crossed off the list are
Aidan, Caleb, Declan, Callum, Callan, Landon
So, which names do you like the best? Which names sound the best with Alex@ndra and Keeg@n?
