Going Crazy! :(
My husband and I are having such a hard time with boys names, it is really getting frustrating! Our girls options just came to us right away and we both loved them. Our options are Cora and Scarlett. Boys names have been a struggle from the beginning. I love classic names, and my husband loves unique names. Not necessarily names that are way 'out there', just names he doesn't hear a lot. His favorite is Merrick. I like it but just don't love it. My favorites are Parker and Jameson, which my hubby likes but just doesn't love.
Right now our front runner is Callen. It is unique to my husband but has the classic feel to me if Calvin, with the handsom nickname cal. We both really like it, but I'm just not completely in love like I am with the girls! I'm trying not to stress, as it might not even be a boy. I just need more options!!
Do you mind if I ask if you've on team green? Or will you find out the gender soon? If you're finding out in the near future, you might want to consider taking a little break to see if anything naturally presents itself in the meantime. My DH and I did that and it was very helpful. I'm sure that's not the advice you were looking for, but it was helpful for us.
Otherwise, I think Callen is a great name and a very nice compromise!
It looks like you both like surnames. I usually like more classic boys' names as well, but I do like Callen, nn Cal. Have you thought of:
Bennett (nn Ben, my current favorite)
Callum (nn Cal)
Or some names with a classic feel that aren't super common right now:
Abraham (nn Abe)
Jonah (nn Joe)
Cora and Scarlett are lovely! Callen is nice, but maybe you need something "prettier" for a boy too? :)
What about Cashel, or Callum as names with more history?
We will be finding out at the end of October!
I love Declan and Rowan. Hubby vetoed Rowan and everybody we tell about Declan says 'that sounds like ...(insert a number of things here). And nobody likes it. :(
Hubby loves maverick but I'm not a fan.
Im still with your husband. I like Merrick and Callen sooooo much better than Parker and Jameson.
How about Preston? Its a fav of mine right now. It has a 'pretty' feel. I think its gorgeous!
