Starting from Scratch
So, DH and I generally agree on a few girls names we both like :Lorelei, Serafina and Freya are the top 3. We cannot agree on boys names.
Dean ( he says boring)
Judah (He hates)
Von (he says Meh)
We both like but dont love
Peter (family name, worried about the penis connotation)
Henry (family name also but its out because my 1st cousin just had a Henry)
He likes traditional strong common doesn't mind popular like his own name, David.
I like short, strong, underused but still recognizable and pronounceable. Help?
I like Dean and Henry
How about Kent, Grant, Louis, Graham, or even Jude instead of Judah.
Out of the names you listed I like Dean and Peter. I wouldn't worry about the penis connotations. I RARELY ever hear it referred to a Peter anymore. I love Peter cause it makes me think of Peter Pan.
Some ideas though...
All of those are not in the top 100.
I do like Elliot. Great suggestion. How about Gideon, is it a bit to......Amish?
Reid was the first thing that came to mind. It's not overly used, but its recognizable and familiar enough that maybe your H would like it?
I feel your pain! What about Eli? Short, masculine and old fashioned...meets both criteria? :) good luck!
Sadly, the same first cousin who has a Henry also has an Eli. And she only lives 45 minutes away and we are on good terms so I would feel bad using any of her names. She also has a Lucas/Luke
