  1. Theodore, Duncan, or Frederick (nn Fritz)?

    What are your thoughts on these names? First impressions, etc.?

    I like Finn much better with your other children's names, and with your ln. I DO think French-speakers are likely to mispronounce it-- but I also think it's likely that theyw ould mispronounce...

    Love it! I do see how the full name Calvin has a certain quirky nerdiness to it (not unlike Simon, Oliver, and any number of names coming back in style)-- but the nn Cal doesn't seem nerdy at all.

    I think the syllable things is what's bothering me-- especially since we're using a 2-syllable family name in the middle. We've kept throwing Theodore in as an option, and I think it sounds better...

    does this work with our ln?

    Me again. Only 4 weeks to go! So dh and I are still in love with the name Duncan, and I'm still waffling about how it sounds with our ln (pronounced with a short "e" like REMM-iss). I guess it's...

    It's hard to think of a nickname based on a 3 -letter name! Some friends call their kids by the first letter of their name-- so he could be "S". I kind of think if you choose a name that short, you...

    I agree that the one-syllable mns sound good. Maybe Tucker Dean? Also love the suggestion of Tucker Boone.

    is Theodore about to get popular?

    We're down to 2 names, Theodore and Duncan. Theodore seems perfect in so many ways- we like that it's longer, that it has multiple nn options for the future, that it goes wonderfully with our dd's...

  15. need fn suggestions to go with mn Morgan- or do these work?

    Our babe is due in 6 weeks, and we're still waffling. I think we've pretty much decided that his middle name will be Morgan, for my dh's grandpa (very special to him). The trick is that our...

    I think someone could easily use any of these EXCEPT for Draco. The other names have a "life" before and after HP, but Draco is too much the character, and I think it would be unfair to saddle a kid...

    LOVE Colin-- and Colin James sounds great together. I can't imagine people would mispronounce it often, and corrections are easy. Wouldn't be deterred in the least.
  18. tell me to use the one name we both love! (or not, if you really think so...)

    We've been having such a hard time deciding on a name for our little boy- due early April. Through all of our discussions, there are 2-3 names that we feel okay about (but that don't have us both...

    Our next door neighbor boy (7yo) is a Noah. Dd has another Noah in her kindergarten class. I like the name, too, but it definitely feels popular around here. It changes so much by geography.

    I think the only way it could become an issue is if your child himself decided he wanted to go by _J as he gets older. My dd's name could easily be shortened into a gazillion tempting nicknames, but...

    names with similar "feel" to Duncan?
