    Rowan
    Logan
    Noah
    Have you been peeking at our list? Logan and Noah are both on our short list, although Noah is awfully popular right now.

    I agree!


    I love Oliver Ostman. It's just the right amount of alliteration in my opinion. I think Owen sounds way too close to your last name for it to be usable. From your list, I also love Ian! I think the beginning of the name doesn't matter as much as the ending of a name because with the ending of a name, you can get something that runs together or (like what Owen does) sounds too similar to one another.

    I think Oliver Ostman and Ian Ostman sounds great!

    I feel you! Our name is pronounced similar to Owen-bee and my favorite names for a long time has been Olivia and Elizabeth.

    I do think alliteration can work. Oliver Ostman sounds great. Owen & Ian don't sound as good, but not bad.

    I think Ethan Ostman also sounds great.

    I'd stay away from August Ostman, that's a bit too much similarity.

    Owen Ostman not so much, as both names start and end in the same letters, so the flow isn't as good.

    I like alliterative names.
    Agreed. I think Oliver Ostman is pretty amazing! I also really love Ian Ostman and August Ostman. Particularly August, but it's mainly just because I love August in general!
