We have just found out our second is a boy! He will join brother Luke. I'm really liking the "Re" names, specifically Reid or Reed, Reeve, and Reece. Reece is a family name so we would spell it that...
A few that come to my mind:
Another vote for Dean--Dean and Grant is such a great sounding brothers combo. And agreed with others that Lawton is much too preppy/trying too hard. Good luck!

My favorite question, ha! Lately:
I really appreciate all the thoughtful comments. This has made me feel better about the negative associations. Thanks!
Yes, we're in Austin where there are some pretty out there hipster baby names, so one this classic probably won't even register :)
We live in a liberal area of a conservative state, so I don't think it would be a major issue. Husband has nixed Evelyn and though I like Eva I worry it's too close to mega popular Ava. Glad to hear...
We're expecting next spring, and I'm trying to sell my husband on Eve for a girl. He's understandably worried about the negative associations (subservient, evil, destructive woman). I think the name...
Thanks for the suggestions! He likes both classic names and hard sounds (especially for girls, because our son's name is Luke which doesn't seem like such a hard sound to me).
There's a Townes at my son's school--adorable name and it suits him. We live in Texas, so knowing of TVZ is probably more common than other areas. Go for it!
(whoops--didn't realize this post was...
I have a young child and don't know any Mias at his school or in our church. I know a Mia who is a dog! I think Emilia is beautiful but Mia wouldn't come to mind as a nickname, at least not...
Nova Gray is lovely! That's a real standout.
We are expecting our second child and I'm dreading the girl name discussion with my husband. He loves the name Margaret Elizabeth and cannot let any other girl names into his heart. I love Elizabeth...

It just seems like a LOT to burden a kid with. I know, there's a way to make fun of every name, but Lion seems especially ripe for teasing. I'm in the Leo, Lev, Lionel camp. Those are all great...
Another vote against. I think it would come off as pretentious because it would be impossible to remove the association from the character--it's so ingrained.
This is my best friend's name (we live in the US). She pronounces it like the Bridget ("bridge-ett") spelling but often gets all kinds of mispronunciations. She says she'd have preferred "Bridget" if...
Does strike me as very trendy. I also prefer Reid or Carter, though I think Reid goes better with Ava. Good luck!
I have one son named Luke and am hoping for another in the near future. I'm brainstorming boy names that work well with Luke. Current ideas are Elliot, Reece, Rhett, and Owen. Would love to hear...
I love your twin names and think they fit beautifully with the rest of the kids. My grandmother's name was Sara Jane, so I'm happily biased. Congrats and good luck!
Reese is my vote. Good luck to you!
I adore Caroline, but alas, my husband does not so we won't ever use it. I also love double names, so I think you've got winning choices either way. You could use Mary and combine with some of the...

Eloise, Louisa, Elizabeth...can you tell I like E and L sounds??

Elliot Reece or Sara Pearl
I ditto Eleni Charlotte as mentioned above. Charlotte seems in line with your style and as neither syllable in the name is very dominant, it might nicely balance the dramatic emphases in Eleni and...
