    Help-4 days till baby!!

    There are now just a measly 48 hours until our first child, a son, joins the world. Hubby and I haven't been able to compromise on a name and now we are desperate! We're pretty much down to 3 of our favorites from our (finally) finished list, with help from you berries . They are:

    Auden
    Emerson
    Peregrine

    Which one is best? Last name is Sparks, in case you're wondering. And any middle name suggestions?

    Thanks so much, you're all lifesavers!

    My favourite is Emerson. Could be: Emerson James, Emerson Jude, Emerson Loki, Emerson Richard, Emerson George, Emerson Isaac, Emerson Oliver, Emerson Finn? I like Peregrine as a quirky middle name so you could always go for Emerson Peregrine - I know fluidity isn't exactly there, but how foten will you call him by both names anyway? Sorry but Auden doesn't appeal to me. Good luck!

    Peregrine Sparks sounds amazing
    I like that the P is in both names, Auden and Emerson both sound a little bland next to Sparks. Peregrine holds his own ^^
    A middle name with two syllables sounds best:
    Peregrine Arthur Sparks
    Peregrine Ivo Sparks
    Peregrine Edward Sparks
    Peregrine Henry Sparks
    Peregrine Sayer Sparks
    Peregrine Monroe/Munro Sparks
    Peregrine Willem Sparks

    Balthasar + Edmund + Emmanuel + Emrys + Ignatius + Isidor + Leonidas + Oberon + Valentine

    My least favorite is Emerson, even if you were naming the baby after the writer it sounds so bland and trendy.

    Auden is striking but Auden himself was a fairly horrible person.

    I love Peregrine, especially with a cool last name like Sparks. It's lengthy, ornate and formal. It's strikingly uncommon. It conjures up pilgrims, falcons, wanderers and Tolkien.

    If you use it, I think a pared-down middle is best. It would make Peregrine look less quirky. Any family names up for consideration? A 2-syllable name would be best between Peregrine & Sparks.

    Auden - I love this name but I can only picture it on a girl for some reason

    Emerson - it's cute but I like it on a girl better. It is my favorite out of all of your choices

    Peregrine - I do not like this one

    Emerson Jacoby Sparks
    Emerson Alistair Sparks
    Emerson Malachi Sparks
    Emerson Mateo Sparks
    Emerson Luka Sparks (my favorite)
