Name nerd can't even name her own baby!!!
Hi fellow name lovers!!! I'm a nameberry regular...which is why it's so surprising to me that my baby boy will be here in 4-5 weeks and we have NO names for him! My husband and I threw out our lists today bc we didn't love each others favorites and we were getting nowhere. I don't know if I'll find anything I like better than the ones I had on my list!!! Please share some names along the same vein as our favorites...I will be so appreciative of any help! Let e know if u need more info from me.
Felix (my #1)
Enzo (or Lorenzo)
Theodore (teddy, nn)
Declan (he adores it)
Gavin (I like it...but may be too common)
Grant (too short)
Our last name has 4 syllables
Our daughters name is Finley Kate Helena
Past contenders (for style reference): Henry, Asher, Oscar, Tobin, Luca
I tend to like quirky, charming names that stand the test of time. PLEASE HELP nameberries!!!!!!

With a daughter named Finley a son's name needs to be strongly masculine in order to gender-differentiate.
I don't think Enzo, charming as it is, meets your criteria. It's a nickname in Italy along the lines of Johnny or Tad. Felix and Finley are a little too close, and Theodore is unobjectionable but a little staid next to sprightly Finley.
From your husband's list, Declan really works. It's masculine and quirky, Celtic to match your daughter, and uncommon. Gavin is a little passe and Grant is very strong and charming, but if you think it's too short, it's too short. Personally I think Grant + 3-syllable surname would sound nice.
XY: Antoine Raphael
XX: Cassia Viviane Noor

I like Theodore but deteste the nickname Teddy, and I really like Gavin - I don't know about America but in England it's not popular at all, I've only ever met one Gavin and that's my cousin! From your past contenders I love Henry and Asher, and I like Tobin (prefer Tobias). What about: Arthur, Isaac, Lukas, Selby, Sidney, Samson, Bennett, Olivier, Tristian, Raul, Mackenzie, Griffin?Current Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith
