    I don't like taking sides but I'm feeling a little more warmth for your faves Sawyer and Wyatt. Dallas is a unisex place name and it sounds "dated" to me due to the TV hit show of "Dallas" which was popular in the 1980's. Brantley is REALLY trendy and only exploded on the top 1,000 charts in 2010. You have to be very wary of a name that comes out of nowhere and enters the list at No# 736. In 2011, it rose to No# 320. Names like this should be avoided because they "date" very quickly. Sawyer and Wyatt are somewhat trendy too but I think they have more staying power than your wife's choices due to their literary and Western culture associations.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I agree with Mischa completely! Especially in regards to Brantley's trendiness. I think Brantley might be riding the coat tails of Bentley, which is also a very recent pop hit. These flash in the pan type names have a higher chance of becoming dated.

    I like Wyatt and Sawyer!
    Ttc a baby brother or sister for Luther Wolf!
