My sister and brother in law are contemplating an unusual name for their soon-arriving little one. It's gotten enthusiastic feedback from family, but they wonder if it will be worth the potential...
The mountain is pronounced rain-EER, if that helps.
Last week we welcomed our fourth child and third little man:
"True" joins big sister Aurora "Rory" and brothers Sebastian "Bash" and Conrad "Rad".
Naming True was not an easy...
My sons all have formal names with nicknames that have a completely different feel:
I love the versatility!
Out of curiosity, Are you open to an "ending in ett/itt" theme? You have some great options, particularly Everett. I like Hewitt as well, and though I understand the law firm sound, usually you won't...

Your style and your husband's style could lend themselves to my style: Quirky classics with more out there nicknames. We have a Sebastian, nicknamed Bash and a Conrad nicknamed Rad. What could be...
I really like Remy for you, but do find Remington to be a bit of a mouthful. Have you thought about Jeremy, nickname Remy? Really all of your options are wonderful, and I love the middle!
Your name options are wonderful, and so well thought out!
The two that really make me swoon are Donahue (love it!!) and Konrad. My son is Conrad, and we usually call him Rad as opposed to Con...

My personal belief is that honoring a loved one by giving his or her name to your child is a really big deal. If it's important to you to recognize this person, the meaning behind the name trumps the...

I really like Jessamine Justine for you! Jessamine is so underused and lovely, and obviously lends itself to the nickname Jessie. Good luck!
Bennett Nicholas is perfectly fine, but if I were you I think I'd try to find something that your husband could be just as enthused about. Are there any other names you like that allow for the...

My sons are Sebastian "Bash" Richard, Conrad "Rad" Victor, and Truett "True" Steven who will be arriving this April. All the middle names are family names.

Well, there definitely is no consensus on this from all of us to you! All three are fantastic names. I'd go with Sebastian if I were you; stylistically I prefer it with Alexandra. Do you ever call...
I love how much thought you've put into each of these names! Here's my take on them, and possibly a few suggestions:
1. Piper-I like it. It's spunky and cute. I also like how it doesn't put you...
Thanks for the encouragement, everyone! Now we're just looking forward to meeting him :)
After much contemplation, we have chosen a name for our fourth child, who is due this April:
Truett Steven B0wen
will be joining siblings Aurora "Rory", Sebastian "Bash", and Conrad "Rad".

I agree it's not ideal in Spanish. I speak Spanish too, and although the name doesn't translate, I think it will be pronounceable with a trilled R. We're still considering other names as well; it's...

Would anyone else like to weigh in? I so appreciate the feedback!

Oh man, I wish I had an ancestor named Ebenezer! That would totally justify using it and my family couldn't complain :)

Awesome! Thanks, ladies!

I love Margaret, and I think Megan is so sweet. And I'm a sucker for family names, so it gets my vote! I know lots of little Amelias and Julias, although they're lovely too.

Hmm, Avett is interesting, though you're right, we want to avoid another A name. Eberhard is pretty cool, though I think it's classify it as having an unpleasant meaning! Thanks for the suggestions....
