Thank you all for all the comments! They were so much more helpful than the poll. Simon River has my heart too since River was my first choice for big bro Oliver, but got vetoed because we needed a...
River is my all-time fav too. Unfortunately, we needed a name that was familiar in Spain and the US and the Spaniards just found this name cooky (because they automatically translated it). Sooooo my...
Gosh the vote is almost tied... this isn't helping much :) :) :) could more people tell me why they choose one or the other?? Maybe they give off different vibes or styles and that would help me make...
Thanks for all the votes!
Poll: Final two
Think we are down to the final two contenders for baby due in a few weeks. Brother is Oliver Mateo and last name is double-barrelled with Spanish and American ties similar to Hernandez-Jones....

Has anyone suggested Beau?
It has the Boone easy western charm vibe and sounds cute with Brooks. Plus you can have more formal name in Boden/Bodhi/Bowen. I also love the name suggested on the first...
With big brother Oliver Mateo the middle was so easy and obvious. It just fell into place. With Simon (due in June) nothing feels right, and if it does then it ends in an -n and sounds weird with...

Thanks! I love Simon Hawk or Simon Cole. Unfortunately, Cole is a nickname for school in Spain so I won't be able to use that one. But I had never thought about Hawk. Putting it on the list!!!

I LOVE Heath!! I think it is a really surprising choice and very nice with Eliza. It is hard to find names that are unique but not pretentious. A warm, manly name. In the same vein, I think Penn,...
I don't like Walter (it has nerdy associations for me). The other two are very handsome and classy. They also age well imo.

I didnt vote because I couldn't choose. Both are adorable. Tho I do agree that Everett Gray is cuter and more timeless imo than Grayson. William Beckett is very handsome and I love Beck/Beckett.

Looking for a middle for Simon. Big brother is Oliver Mateo. Our last name is a four-syllable, double-barrel Spanish & American last name like Hernandez-Jones
What would you choose? Anything goes....
Love LOVE love Bear and even Finch and Wolf, but there seems to be real pronunciation difficulties here with one-syllable words (oddly enough). I think the middle has to be 2 or 3 syllables.
Amazing list! Thank you for putting so much thought into it. While I like a lot of them, I´m having a hard time seeing how my husband´s side would pronounce them. We already get enough slack that our...
The name has to work in Spain and in the US, so I have a hard time convincing my husband to consider names that sound too american or what he considers "not a real name" so Simon Fox won't work :(...

What about Emmett or Everett? I don't love Camden, but think the nickname Cam is very cool for a boy... maybe you can just name him Cam?
Poll: which would you choose?
Our shortlist for a brother for Oliver/Ollie due in June. Which would you choose? And what would you use as a middle name? (anything goes, but I'm partial to outdoorsy or word names)
Thanks for all the great, honest replies!! I might be even more confused now hahaha.
So I am really liking Simon for Oliver's brother. It makes me nervous that Simon is in the 230s on the US baby name rankings. To me it seems like a simple, biblical name that should appeal to the...

Dominic for a brother to Oliver Mateo? Looking for something that will work in Spain and US. Husband really likes this one. I don't dislike it, but not sure how it would be received... if it is dated...
Thanks for all the opinions! It is really helping. My husband has gotten stuck on Dominic, but I am not sure I LOVE it. I just see at as a reasonable compromise name, but that is kind of sad :/
@Ew314 Of course you can reply! :) Any English-speaker is useful!! I actually love a lot of the names you have in your signature, but my husband is Spanish and has vetoed a lot of names because they...
What are your first impressions / opinions about these names? I've lived out of the US for so long that I'm not sure how they would go over for our 2nd baby boy. Honest, blunt feedback wanted!!
