    Help! We can't decide on a name for our little boy due in July

    Please help us with trying to decide on a name for our little boy. We are due July 4 and can't decide or agree on the right name for him. We like strong masculine not too trendy names, but nothing weird. My husband's name is Matthew and we have decided to use it as the middle name. Our top four are as follows:

    Park Matthew
    Grady Matthew
    Baker Matthew
    Silas Matthew

    Thoughts or suggestions?

    Not keen on Park or Baker because, to me, they are not names.
    Grady reminds me of Paul O'Grady - an English comedian, television presenter, actor, writer and radio DJ - but not someone I would want my child to have a 'connection' with in that way. Obviously if you're not from the UK you might not have heard of him so won't have than connotation.
    Therefore, I think Silas is your best option.

    I don't think Baker sounds at all good, nor name-y; Park flows better but I have never seen it as a name. Parks, perhaps?
    Silas & Grady sound much better, but honestly a 1 or 3 syllable first name will sound best with Matthew as a middle. What is your surname like?

    Suggestions:

    Donovan
    Callahan
    Calloway
    Eames
    Gaines
    Brooks
    Reed
    Pierce
    Cadogan
    Elliot
    Remington
    Tennyson
    Telesford
    Finnegan
    Harrison
    Blaine
    Brant
    Forbes
    Grant
    Tierce
    Blade, MD

    XY: Antoine Raphael
    XX: Cassia Viviane Noor

    Aurea * Emmanuelle * Endellion * Fleur * Jacinda * Lysandra * Melisande * Myrrine * Rosamond * Seraphine * Sylvana * Thea * Verity / Blaise * Cyprian * Evander * Jules * Laurence * Lionel * Malcolm * Marius * Quentin * Rainier

    Park and Baker both sound like last names to me. What about Parker? Or Baxter? Grady has always sounded like grainy to me. I really like Silas. It feels like a cowboys name, has great history and holds a lot of substance.
