    Smile Help! Need Boy First and Middle Names for Last Name Harris

    Hi!

    My baby is due in two weeks and we are having an awful time coming up with a name. We are looking for something that isn't plain (no Thomas, Daniel, James, Jon, etc), but that is still familiar (i.e. no strange spelling, strange sounding names). Also, we are looking for a strong name that would look good on a business card. Our last name is Harris and we like the middle name Bennett, which is also a family name. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

    With a name as lovely but understated as Harris, you have many options. Bennett is a beautiful middle.

    As Bennett & Harris are both 2-syllable names, I think you should select a 3-syllable first name for optimal meter. Something with a few vowel sounds to smooth out all those consonants would be ideal.

    Your taste in names sounds pretty similar to mine. Something slightly unusual, still useable, with a somewhat familiar sound, but definitely not boring. That's how I describe it. Maybe I could suggest a few names from my own list?

    Cain: I love this biblical name. The negative acts associated with it don't bother me in the slightest, although I suppose that's because I'm not strictly religious. It does have a familiar sound to me, but is certainly not something you hear very often, if ever.

    Casper: There's a "friendly ghost" association. So what? I used to hate this name, and now I absolutely love it. The sound and everything about it. Besides, I assume that my children's generation won't even know who Casper the Friendly Ghost is. And this name has a few different, but legitimate, spellings such as Caspar and Kaspar. I can't really explain why it's amazing. It's a name you either love or hate upon first hearing it. I also suppose it helps me that I met a teenage "Caspar" while on vacation this past year.

    Vincent: Classic, without being overused and boring. "Vince" is a nice nn, too.

    Lawrence: This name has a preppy feel to it, imo. I like that it's familiar, but not common. I've only ever known one Lawrence and no one ever called him by his first name, which I thought was a shame.

    So there's a few. Hope it helps! (: Good luck.
    Crushes: Casper & Isobel.
