How about the names of the actors who have played Clark Kent?
Or the names of actors who have played Bruce Wayne?
**Maybe some of their first or last names may be of interest to you or your husband.

There is also a practical argument against naming a child Luke Skywalker Roy or Peter Parker Roy. Yes, it might be awesome for 2-3 years while your son is in grade school, but at some point he may want to attract a girlfriend or a job. And those names WILL work against him. It's pigeonholing your son into a very rigid box. A name should not only reflect a child's background, but also continue to bless him throughout his life.
Are you currently pregnant/is this your first child? It seems to me that a lot of men don't really get serious about names until there is a "bun in the oven," so to speak. So maybe his somewhat childish approach to naming is due to the fact that he is slightly apprehensive about the whole Becoming A Parent thing in general? The fact that your husband is actually being rather contradictory--many of the names he prefers are surnames--makes me think that he is not currently being very serious about naming...which is actually OK if there's not a pressing need for a name THIS SECOND, as long as he gets more serious when there is an actual child needing a name.Current favorites: Olive, Louise/Louisa, Magdalene/Madeline, Phillipa, Talitha, Mallory, Blythe, Eliza, Mercy, Talia; Calvin, Charles, Gideon, Abram, Jude, Reuben, George, Reid, Clark, Holden.

I see your frustration here. You have to laugh. Your husband is such a man. Tell him he has to compromise and that you don't want your son to have such an obvious super hero name. This will cause embarassment and teasing later. You sound like you are being completely reasonable. He needs to do the same.
