Longtime lurker - first time poster.
My name is Breckan
DH is Brian
DS1 is Samuel George
DS2 is Brant Christopher
Dog is Max
DS3 is due in 2 weeks!
DH had his heart set on the name Andon from about 17 weeks on. I initially agreed, but after thinking (obsessing) over it, I decided I do not like it. I don't like saying Brant and Andon (too many "and's" together). PLUS - neither of us like the nn's Andy, Don, or Donnie.
I had my heart set on August, nn Auggie. DH hates it.
My name list (nothing jumps out at him):
August nn Auggie
HIS name list (he only got through A and B)
I can live with Bryson, but then everybody in our family would have the "Br" combo except for my DS Sam. He's 14 from my first marriage, and I'd rather not do that to him. I am impatiently waiting for more names out of DH but I fear he will not have any more.
Can anyone come up with some suggestions based on his like for Andon/Bryson and my like for Auggie?

I love August too. Maybe your husband will go for Augusten/Augustin? It has a more name like feel.
I don't like how Andon sounds with your children and I just generally don't like Bryson.
Here's some names I think you might like and go well with the other boys:
Do you like any of those?http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Blackwood/e/B00SARZLFY -- My Amazon Author Page

I know a lot of 3-child families where two have names that start with the same letter (mine included). I really don't think it's nearly as big of a deal in terms of exclusion as parents on name boards seem to think it is. That being said, I don't like Bryson, lol. My brothers are actually named Bryan and Brett, which are really similar to Bryson and Brant My mom really liked Craig for Brett. Sam, Brant and Craig sound good together.
To mix Andon and August, I think the logical first suggestion is Austin/ Austen.
A couple others that come to mind:
Otis (? Grasping at straws, haha)
Tavish (I like this a lot! It's surnamey like Andon, but has some similar sounds to August)
