Archer, Roman, or....?
My OH and I just had our appointment revealing the gender, team blue!! :) which works because we've had a REALLY hard time agreeing on any girls names!! Still haven't. Anyway. I thought we were set on Archer Cole to be our sons name, though we had Roman Connor as another we loved. I started calling Little Mister by Archer and he said not to start so early cause he's not sure. I'm pretty set on Archer even though the general crowd seems to not love it. My family's "alright" with it, no name hating, but they clearly don't love it.
I had a few others on my list, Graham Theodore / Graham Wilson, Finn... nothing else so far. Previously OH mentioned loving Jason but I'm not sold. I love old fashioned, he loves more modern. I loved Archer and Roman because they have the modern, masculine feel OH loves and they aren't popular (which I love!). I'm avoiding the top 100, at least for the first name. I am opened to reusing middle names from names above and such.
I'd love suggestions though!! :) Anything out of the top 100 is good with me ;) if you could match styles that'd be splendid but not necessary! I've been searching the SSA lists but they're so extensive it gives a bit of a headache :(
Between Archer and Roman I would pick Roman. It's much more classy and strong by far and also less trendy. Roman Connor is fine but I advice to find another middle name since both names end in -n in the combo as you have it. How do you feel about Roman Cole?
Some related ideas:
Atticus - it's an ancient name but seems to be having its second heyday now
I'm biased, but my vote is for Roman.
Yeah, Roman seem's to be more popular among everyone I know. Most prefer Roman, but I'm not loving it as much as Archer for whatever reason. Roman Cole's alright, I do like it <3
I like these of your suggestions!
Vincent is a family name, I think it'd be a wonderful middle name option! I don't think my OH would like Hugo, Percy, or Theodore as I do but I love them. I LOVE Cassius and Lennox though!! I'll have to ask him :) Thank you so much!
I will cast another vote for Roman. The only thing I want to mention is that I know of 3 Romans born in the last year and a half in my circle of friends. It's without a doubt a very handsome name, but it's definitely on the popularity upswing.
I am surprised by the reaction so far - I much prefer Archer! Archer Cole is a very handsome combination. I actually don't care for Roman. I like Graham (with either mn), but not as much as Archer. Wilson Cole would also be nice.
I also prefer Archer to Roman. They're both definitely on trend right now but Archer feels fresher to me.
I would also echo the pp's suggestions of Hugo and Atticus. I also love Theodore and I think Vincent makes a very handsome middle name.
I much prefer Archer than Roman. Only because I love Archer Cole! I think the combo sounds stunning and handsome. So Archer has my vote!
I adore Archer! Yes, it has had that sudden burst of popularity we call "trendy," but some names so deserve it -- Archer is one. It seems to me fresh yet Victorian, outdoorsy yet gentlemanly -- you could use it in the American west or a British drawing room. And frankly, it sounds as though Roman is as trendy, to be honest.
I like Archer Cole and hope you can get your husband on board.
But not to be rude, but what is an OH? Old husband? Other husband? I have just never seen that one.
