    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.

    My favorites:
    Felix (my #1)
    Enzo (or Lorenzo)
    Theodore (teddy, nn)

    Hubby:
    Declan (he adores it)
    Gavin (I like it...but may be too common)
    Grant (too short)

    More info:
    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!!!!!!

    Mother of three teenagers: (1) Daniel Glen, (2) Timothy Austin, and (3) Rebecca Jane... all middle names honor family... 3rd generation mn Jane. (A second girl would have been Susanna Eve and a third boy, maybe Isaac...)

    What about Graham? Or Graeme? It is similar to Gavin, but more unusual.

    I love Felix too. Remind your husband that guy who jumped out of space down to earth was named that. Maybe it'll make it more athletic and cool in his eyes.

    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.

    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
