    Your daughter's name is so exotic-sounding and has great history. None of the boys' names on your list really feel the same, so I completely understand how you feel they are lackluster.
    I would look...

    Asa (AY-sah). Thanks! I still don't like this one very much. It sounds a little feminine.

    I like Dexter – both Dexter and Declan can have the nn of Dex, which is fun.
    I have a friend whose two sons are Declan and Lincoln. She calls them Dex and Link. 

  7. Poll: [QUOTE=uselesskitty;1753198]My son's middle name...

    Hmmm no, we never picked those names out (we being me)… I like Gabriel, but it’s not quite unusual enough. Gustav is not my style and Frank is a bit too old-fashioned. I’ll bring them up. Our tastes...

    Boys' names are so hard for me, so I completely understand!

    Cecilia: Seems like an older name, but using the nn Cece makes it a bit more modern to me.

    Orwell...
  10. Poll: Boy after Girl (Anika). Need help and suggestions!

    Help! My husband and I can't decide on a name.
    He goes through favourites - he has always been obsessed with Magnus (I refuse). In December he decided Corbin was his favourite. But then switched to...

    I love the name Kellan. It's my sister's boyfriend's name, otherwise it would be on our short-list right now for our baby boy. Sigh.
    I am not a fan of Wyatt. To me they are completely different...

    I voted Callum by default. I don't like Kian and wasn't sure how to pronounce it... and Caius is just well, like naming a baby Caesar. Or Nero :)

    I'd never heard of it as a name until I read that Reese Witherspoon named her boy that... not a fan, personally. But I like the connection. Maybe as a middle name?

    Hi! I'm new on this board, but found the thread while searching for Innes I believe.
    I just thought I'd pipe in because a few names you have on your list are also on mine: Innes, Drake, Wolf, Damon,...
