We had a boy and successfully named him! His name is Frederick Charles. We still hadn't decided when we left for the hospital, but as soon as he was born, we both knew and agreed. Charles has been a...
Wow, thanks everyone for the great feedback! I'm kind of relieved that there's no landslide away or toward any one name--kind of makes me feel like we can't go too wrong.
Eames is indeed inspired...
It would never have occurred to me that Alaric sounds girlish because it has such a bellicose etymology, but I can see where you're coming from.
My husband will be thrilled that you...
I've posted before and always feel like progress is made...and then over the course of a few weeks or months, it all unravels. But now there isn't enough time for it to unravel again, so it must be...
It's a Yiddish name, so I'd be extremely surprised to encounter a Hershel who didn't have some Jewish background (not sure if that applies to you or not). People come down on all sides of the...
My vote is with Kingston. It shares an old-world established surname quality with Adler. Idiris and Terrick feel more other-worldly or made-up by comparison. Apollo is certainly familiar, but strikes...
One of my colleagues just had a baby Luke. Their other top contenders were Liam and Jack, which I think would be great brother names. I also like pp's suggestion of Owen.

Put me in the pro-Carl camp. I knew one Karl in high school and he was sociable and well-liked, not particularly serious but still got along well with teachers and made decent grades. When spelled...
I voted for Thomas Henry, but I love both your Thomas combos. I wonder why more people aren't using Thomas? It's a great name!

Thanks for your feedback, everyone. It still seems awkward to me, but you have at least shown me that most other people won't find it too odd. My husband is not at all bothered, nor were my mother...

We are expecting our second baby in just (gulp) 2 months, but I think we have more or less decided on Rosalind if it's a girl. Our older daughter is named Isadora nn Dora, and I really like how well...
Thanks, everyone! Your comments have been really helpful. I think we're leaning towards Tobias or Burgess from our list, mostly because in our heart of hearts, we like a little exoticism. There's not...
We're expecting our second and final child in February, sex unknown. Our daughter is named Isadora Lucille, and if this baby is a girl, we will most likely go with Cecilia (a family name that would...

tct - Thank you. I don't know if I'm gutsy enough for Thor, but I also think it sounds good with our last name (a rare occurrence!). Maybe with the right middle, even a skinny nerdy kid could find a...

Thank you! And I can't tell you how much relief it gives me that not everyone dislikes Eero and Alaric! Especially because I just asked my husband about the new list I made yesterday from your...

You guessed it! :D

Ok, from your suggestions, I'm liking...
Axel - love, but have never gotten much warmth from husband on this one
Arthur - Ditto...sigh...
Otto - Love but looks/sounds too much like the...

Oh, you guys are wonderful. You are giving me names I do still like! I'll be late for work if I reply in detail right now, but I at least wanted to say thank you right away!

Two months could be a long time...or a really short time. But considering how little progress has been made in the past seven, I think we need (semi) professional help here. Our last name is almost...

Oh, such a hard choice! Ione is a name I've loved for a long time, but since it rhymes with Byrony and has the same ending as Magalie, I couldn't vote for it. Too bad...I'd love to meet a little...
I like it too. It has a good story. If you were thinking of putting Nation first, it might be a little too much, but as one of the middles, I think it's fine.
I taught an Alfredo when he was in 9th grade. He was not made fun of either. 5-year-olds...do they even know that Alfredo is also something you can eat? Possibly not. It might be one of those names...
