    I like Otto. It's spunky and refreshing without being too "out there," and Greyson feels far too trendy for my taste.

    I'm usually not into the -son names as first names, but I really like Dawson. Jackson is irritatingly common.

    Am I being selfish or unreasonable?

    FIL passed away a year and a half ago. Now DH wants to name our baby boy after him. He'd like it as the first name but that's absolutely not happening, but it's still up in the air as far as putting...

    Andrew, but not Andrew...

    I think I've exhausted all options but I thought I'd give it a shot. I don't like Drew or any of the common variants (Andre, Andreas, etc.) Anders, Evander, Lysander, and Leander have been rejected...

    Miles has always seemed sort of nerdy and stuffy to me, although I know I'm in the minority with that opinion! I love Milo as an alternative, it's spunky but not too "out there." Leo is popular but...

    I read a translation of the Iliad that spelled Achilles as Akhilleus, which I love the look of, but talk about fussy - and what a nightmare to deal with correcting spelling and pronunciation!

    I love Marianne! It's elegant and classic but somehow also has a fresh, spunky feel. Maryanne looks far more conservative.
