Thanks everyone! I just wanted to post an update and let you know that we have chosen Soren Jove. Thank you for all the advice and help!

You're welcome. We're trying to name our third boy, so we've done this same routine twice before. :)

I just wanted to add that because naming is such an important decision, I think it's really easy to feel overwhelmed. Plus, the end of pregnancy is sort of an emotional quagmire, so that might be...
I read Baxter on this blog this morning, and think that one fits in well here.
You've got some great suggestions here! I just wanted to add
I love it. We didn't want a second C name, and actually ended up going with Alder instead. :)
I like the nn Theo a lot, but I sort of associate the name with Bundy too. It's unfortunate, because it's my nephew's name. Similar to Theodore is hard. The only two I can think of that I associate...

What about Stetson Gabe? It seems to flow better than Gabriel, and doesn't have as much biblical reference.
I also like Stetson James, but I understand your concern. Personally, I really like...

Good luck! My husband and I are having similar issues, so I totally understand.

For me, it's completely arbitrary. I taught preschool, and if I taught several kids with the same name, I won't use it. I try to avoid trendy names as opposed to popular, so while I won't use...

I like Gray or Grey. I live in Montana and would never have thought of the team colors thing. :)
I like Owen James best (:))
I'm difficult. If I had to choose from these, I'd pick James Daniel because of the flow.

I like Quinn, Garren and Edven. I can't seem to focus on girls' names, good or bad because I'm obsessed with finding a boy one right now. :)
My grandmother's family have/had really unusual names in her generation. She's 93, and her name is Maree Kasusa. Her brothers were Richard and Hadley. Her sisters were Theda Bara, Billie Dee, and...
tee hee, I was typing and taking a phone call at the same time. Ebsen, I've never heard of either, my fingers just made it up accidentally. I was trying to type Edson. I prefer it to Edison, it...
I like Nathaniel, I particularly like nickname of Thaniel.
My son's name is Cayson. It's a smoosh name for us, because Casey is a family surname and both my maiden name and my husband's mom's maiden name end in -son. So I guess I made it up, but I'm okay...
Or Phoebe June?

Boy, but only because of two movie associations. Happy Feet and Gone in Sixty Seconds.

I taught, so I have associations for difficult kids with certain names. And good associations for some names, too. And oh my goodness, high school. It was a long time ago, but names of people I...

I'm going to do this pretending that I don't have to work around my sons' names, my husband's objections or my last name. :)
1. Blythe Maree (I know, the -ee is super trendy, but my 94 year old...
I think my brain is on name overload. Today, I still like Soren, I like Sage, and Devon. Neither of the last two are names I would have considered my style, but there you go. And I have always and...

Rowan, for sure. It would be on my least, but I have a nephew named Roman and it's too close.

I love Penelope, but hate how popular it's getting. Especially since it's now a Kardashian (sigh) name.
I like Hunter, mostly because it's my mom's maiden name.
The only super-popular name...

Some of these are fabulous!
My grandpa's were
Vernon Conrad (maternal)
Gunnar Ake (paternal)
George Edward (stepdad's father)
My husband's grandpas
I like Evander, Graham, Everett and Marcus. I can't get my liberal self to see Heston as a viable name because of Mr. 2nd Amendment Charlton. lol
