Name for a pilot's son?
So I'm trying to approach this boy's names thing from a fresh angle. Cause the old angles aren't turning up anything exciting. So this might be too out there, too tough, or too whatever, but I'm wondering if any of you know of, or can think of, any names related to being a pilot/flying/anything-aero-related...? Dad is a commercial airline pilot and that's always been his number one love, so I think it could be sweet to go that route if we have a son.
I don't know if it's the hormones or "pregnancy brain" or whatever but I'm drawing a complete blank. For girls I came up with Wren and Amelia but for boys? Nada. Thank you so much!
Hmmm... I will give it a go. This is definitely a tough one.
Maverick- may be too out there. This name is on my list which my boyfriend likes.
Aviator- can be used a fun/spunky middle name.

As always, you guys are amazing and so creative! Thank you so much for all of the great suggestions, now I have lots to show the hubby when he comes home from his current trip. Out of all of the names above, there has to be at least 2 or 3 that we both like, right?? ;-)
I'll post again after he comes home and we pick a few we both like. Thank you!!!!
