Final Baby Name Poll
So, we're down to the end (and thank you for all of your help, suggestions, well wishes, etc.). Please vote for me, one last time.
The middle names were chosen because Lenox is a very special place to my husband and I (it's in the Berkshires) and Lorcan means "fierce" (I got diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy) and Joshua is my husband's name.
Aurelius will likely be shortened to Ari for ease of use, but I personally love it as a whole. Alaric we will attempt to have no nickname for.
Thanks in advance.
Crap, it didn't add a poll!
Aurelius (but I hate the middle names and will give you better ideas below!)
Alaric (but I hate the middle names and will give you better ideas below!)
I"d love any other middle name suggestions that mean something.. the ocean is special to us, as is Lenox.... maybe something meaning strength or something similar.
Aurelius Joshua is my choice for you. nn Ari Joshua
I like Alaric with the middle names either Joshua or Lorcan. I think Aurelius sounds a bit too feminine for my liking for a little boy.
Ariston is Greek meaning 'high-born', as in aristocratic...perhaps not the meaning you're going for (perhaps mildly pretentious to those who figure out what it means), but it has the sounds you seem to like and it's easier to pronounce/spell. Of your choices, I love Aleric, but not the middle names so much.
Alaric Joshua or Lenox are my favorites.
Another vote for Aurelius Lorcan! Very well balanced.
Alaric is a fantastic name, but won't work with Lorcan (to many K sounds repeated) nor Lenox (rhyming endings), so if you select Alaric I would choose Joshua.
Otherwise, ocean-y and strong middles:
Alaric Ballard ("brave and strong")
Alaric Hartman ("strong man")
Alaric Barrett ("boar-strength")
I love Alaric Lennox! I would also like Lennox Alaric! So glad you finally found some names that you could love! Let us know what you decide.
Aurelius Lorcan has my vote!
