    Lol, no, Caspian is also on the list - which is another reason I'm hesitant about Atticus, because it means we couldn't use Caspian in the future if we wanted to. We are totally overthinking it...

    I don't really love either. It's more which one do we hate less? Octavian would have been my next choice, but hubby isn't a fan. Oi vey.

    I feel like Hadrian would go better with Reuel - with both names ending in an "l", I find it a bit of a tongue twister.

    I think its so common that she couldn't possibly be offended, but I'd ask her anyways. Our oldest son has a very unique name, and we would like to keep it that way, so we personally would be offended...

    Atticus or Theron?

    So... our baby boy is over a month old and still nameless. It's been a hard month. We had decided on Theseus, told some friends and family, and the next morning my husband woke up and was sick about...

    Thanks everyone - I think for a nickname we'd go with Theo - Leonidas goes by Nidas as a nn (although we rarely do a nn), so it wouldn't be Leo and Theo - lol, slightly too rhymey for me! :)

    I'll...

    Theseus - is it really pretentious?

    We welcomed our second baby boy on Wednesday morning (a surprise, unassisted home birth!). As of right now, he's currently nameless.

    It seems the front runner is Theseus, but Nameberry has it...

    Wow! Thanks so much for all the unnecessary, and unasked for feedback about vaccinating!

    My MIL had two boys, but it's no secret how much she wanted a girl, and now, granddaughters. When we were pregnant with our first, and didn't know the gender, we asked her what she would have called...

    Ugh - seriously, never ever discuss names with your family (or friends!) before the baby is actually named, and you have signed the birth certificate. Honestly.

    With our son, we decided to honour...

    An issue with the MIL

    This isn't a huge issue, but thought I'd get some other opinions on it.

    My 17 month old has beautiful hair - my husband is Egyptian with tight, tight black curls, and I have brown, wavy hair....

    I'm not a fan of Sam names in general, but I especially don't like Samford. I find it a bit difficult to say, and it does sound like you're mispronouncing Sanford. I agree with pp, Samson is probably...

    We honoured two great-grandfathers with our son's middle name. There's no set rule, but I feel that honouring the older generations is more honourable - plus, my hubby felt that naming our son after...

    I'm horrible at suggesting names, but I do think that Loyal would be an amazing middle name. I *think* it would sound better with a longer, strong, and more common first name.

    Thanks everyone! I had no idea that this is a southern Brit (Old English) way of pronouncing "Ralph" - like, Ralph Fiennes name is pronounced Rayf.

    I like the Rayf way of saying it - and I had an...

    Obviously I agree with some others - both Leonidas and Alexander are very strong names. I think that Isaac Alexander is nicer than Isaac Leonidas though - flipped, it'd be fine.

    Pronunciation of Rafe?

    Is it Rafe, like in raft, or Rafe, with a long "a" sound?

    And which way would you read it, if you didn't already know how to say it?

    We actually like the nn Cas more than anything, as it sounds a little stronger than the princely Caspian. So I too think its the best bet so far.

    I agree with a pp, go with a name you love. Be firm when people ask what their name is, and clarify that it's no "joe" or "Joey", its "Joseph" (I.e).
