Too plain, or is it unexpected enough for this generation?
We just found out dh's grandpa has stage 4 cancer. I thought it would be nice to honor him by naming our son David after him. I know that would mean a lot to my husband and his family. I like the name just fine and I've always loved King David from the bible... I just never thought I would consider using such a "regular guy" name for my son, as I like more unexpected, cool/edgy names. We're considering David either as a first name or a middle name, but this question is more for if we used it as a first name.
Do you think David is too plain, boring, or overused? Or could it be cool or unexpected for this new generation of babies?
What are your overall opinions?Mommy to...

To be honest I love the meaning and significance to you and your husband but I find it so plain and I just couldn't bare the thought of a little boy becoming another 'Dave'. I like the nickname Davy and I think that would be super cute but I think 'Dave' is much more likely so for this reason I think it's better as a middle name.Florentina Arleen Belle & River Isaac James

Davidson for a mn. I love the -son names when they have a family connection like this. Even as a fn I think it would be really nice. I don't know if I can really consider using a name like David, James, John unexpected in any generation. But I do like the classics and think that I'd probably prefer David or Davidson over any other related name like Davis or Davy as a proper first name.Little Lorelei - May 2016Endora - Freya - Merida - Viola - Zelda
