Almost all our choices are family names, but here are some more unusual ones from our tree:
I think any of them work except chaos (the word doesn't have any positive connotation to me) and general, because besides the rank it also has the meaning of the opposite of specific.
I considered Gentry as a first name but know it would end up as Gen (Jen) or Gene as a nickname.
And I am glad others agree it is the spirit of the name. He would know Gentry was after his...
Lyric, its one of those names I love but wouldn't have the guts to use.
So DH's favorite uncle was Terry Gene. He would love to honor him but I don't like either name and neither fits our naming style.
Is Gentry a stretch? How far is too far a stretch when it comes to...
Atreyu, Samwise, Dante, Loyal

Ruby & Everett
Dexter & Beau
I like all three choices. If it is just down to a name Campbell "Cam" is my favorite but you know you best.
Have you considered Lane?
I also wouldn't discount talking to your mom, you might be...
I don't like the flow of Luke Gross, though I love Luke Warren how often do you use your middle name?
I love our top boy's name for lots of reasons (family history, meaning, possible nicknames). DH approves because it is the last name of one of his favorite characters ever. I appreciate the...
Like Mary Lou Rhetton?

I like O'Connell but with a Mc last name it is a bit much.
I like Millar too and the nn Mills and it flows well.
I am not a fan of Cliff.
I like the last name as a first name trend...
I love Thomas. Thomas Brian could lead to the nickname Toby.
Now I have name envy...
I worried Rhett was too Gone with the Wind...but maybe not?
We have talked about Everett with the nickname Rhett. But his grandfather, uncle, and cousin are named Emitt and we don't want that connection.
Is Merritt a stretch?
And Remedy is a GP for a girl
We plan on using Mack as a nn for McCoy. Everett is also on our list and I like the nn Rhett.
Most my favs don't have/need nicknames.

Sadly, I like Juliet but wouldn't use it because the story is so tragic. I love Miranda and Helena and Morgana but I don't think most people automatically think Shakespeare when they hear them.

I understand, but most people are not Berries. I love Saoirse but I know where I live it would be a constant battle of spelling and pronunciation.
If that doesn't bother you, I would prefer the...
Lord, don't let my DH see this list he would love it.
I like the combo. I think Van as a "nickname" seems like using Ann as a nickname for Anne.
If you decide to use Van instead I would use a different middle name.

Most people will pronounce Teague Teeg (rhymes with Team) and will have no clue how to pronounce Tadhg (or pronounce it Tadig). I am not sure how I would spell the pronunciation you aregoing for. Tyg?
