I feel your pain. Our last name is Burns, which eliminated a number of good options.
5. Eadie (pn Eee-dee)
If you and your husband both really like the name, why wouldn't you choose it? We're just a bunch of strangers on the Internet, after all. The most important thing is that you and your husband are...
It would be too far out for me, but maybe not for you :-) I wouldn't worry about teasing (never heard that rhyme), more about how the resume looks when he's 30. But even that is subject to differing...
Yes, compromise is hard!
Have you tried a baby names compromise tool like this one?
It will make suggestions of names you...
Try some of these:

FYI, this is not a new trend. This is something that has happened for at least 100 years. Many boy names migrate to girl names. Lauren, Leslie, Dana, Lynn, and Shannon all started as boy names to...
I see I've brought my alteration knife to a wordplay gunfight! Now, I'm off to look up the word insipid in my dictionary... ;-)

I think Calvin Kim sounds great, and it's not too close to Calvin Klein. It actually really works for me as two names that go great together.
Note: I'm a big Calvin & Hobbes, Calvin Coolidge, and...
What, no Willow? Wow. And where was Winter, Wesley, and Wyatt in your writings?

What is your favorite baby name that is too popular to actually use? This is the name you would use in a heartbeat if it were ranked outside of the top 500 names.
Jackson for boy

Your first job is to please yourselves. If you like it, go for it.
Having said that, our family name ends in an S and we always avoided first names that ended in S because it sounded awkward to...

You, not your relatives, should name your children as it pleases you. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks of your choice. Don't be intimidated into naming your child a name that wouldn't have...
Have you tried using a baby names compromise tool like this one yet?
You and your husband each enter your lists, and it makes...
Nameberry is great of course! I especially love the theme lists and blog posts. My other two favs are:
Think Baby Names for detailed name meanings:
Maybe you could use it as a middle name, and pick another name you both like as the first name?

I think Geno is an amazing name, I'm sorry you don't like how it flows.
One option would be to pick names with the same initials, D.G. (Dawson Gray, or whatever - whatever names you like). Or...

I'm always a little nervous to answer a question that begins "Am I being selfish or unreasonable?"
Instead, let me just say this - it sounds important to your husband to honor his dad's memory in...
Wow, that's an obscure one! I like it though. Was finally able to find the meaning:
"An anglicized version of the Old Norse...

Briar has never made the Top 1000 since records were kept in 1890. I'd be shocked if it became super-popular. To draw a parallel, Ariel was in the 300's when the Little Mermaid came out, and it...
Names too strongly associated with one specific person, real or fictional. Examples: Dexter, Homer, Elvis, Adele

Since there is a minimum character length on replies, let me say that again: Ambrose.

What's the name you love, love, love but just couldn't use - not because your S.O. vetoes it but because of some other consideration.
Mine is Ambrose - I love that name, but I also can't imagine...

I don't think Lincoln is going to turn unisex any time soon. As a girls name, it's not even ranked in the top 1,000 names, nor has it been since records started being kept in 1890. Contrast that with...
