I don't really like son names. I prefer James, Harris, etc to Jameson, Harrison, etc. From your lists, I love:
What if you compromise and use Jamison Merrick? That way both you and your husband have a name you absolutely love in the combo and it will still honor your dad with the JM initials. Good luck! =]
My last name is an Americanized version of Merrick. Merrick's were the people in wales who would light the torches on the hillside to warn the King the enemy was coming. I love the story behind this name. I think Jamison Merrick is amazing.
That is a really cool story behind the name Merrick! I really like Jameson Merrick. I also never thought to use the spelling Jamison- that is sort of nice!
My only concern is that when I suggested using Merrick as a middle name, my husbands response was that it was great and he could just call him Merrick anyways! Is there really a point in using it as a middle if that is what he will be called?
Man I hope we have a girl... Boys names are just to complicated!!
