Baby Boy #3! Out of Ideas!!!
Help!We are expecting our third boy and need some inspiration/ideas/opinions! Big brothers are Griffin and Corbin. I am not necessarily looking to continue the -in ending, as it was not really intentional with the first two. Looking for something distinct, strong and modern, but hopefully not (too) trendy that goes well with his big brothers.
Also, both our boys names have animal meanings -again, a coincidence- I think this would be a cute and subtle way to tie in all 3 names, but it is not an absolute requirement.
Here are a few names that at least one of us likes, but but neither of us love (some are way more trendy/popular than we would actually use)...
-Lincoln (it's been on our list since baby #1, but seems to lack something-also concerned about it just being used on a celebrity baby girl)
-Colton (too close to Corbin)
-Silas (not sure if this "fits" with our first two; trendy?)
-Jasper (not sure if this "fits" with our first two)
-Ladon (lay-den/don... hubby suggested, I really liked this until I realized it will be grouped w/ rest of the -aidens)
-Ford (hubby suggested, don't love the car association)
Others that are too popular/trendy: Jackson, Brody, Caleb, Noah, Mason

Some names I think might be nice with brothers Griffin and Corbin, which you might like:
Wesley (instead of Weston or Jacoby)
Dax, Daxton, Paxton, Tristan (instead of Colton/Lincoln/Ashton)
Quillan/Quillon (a vague bird reference on this one)
Miles (I think this fits a bit better than Silas)
Desmond (just thought you might be interested)
Leo (animal, but fairly popular)
Wyatt (seems to have an outdoorsy/western feel like Weston and Silas)
Quade or Wade (instead of Ford)
Some names with a bird reference, which I have from a search I did last year:
Arundel : Eagle Valley (English)
Aquilo: Eagle (Biblical, Aquila)
Aquilus: Eagle (Biblical Aquila)
Gawain: May hawk, also knight of the round table
Ayre: eagle breed
Ardan: Eagle valley
Peregrine: (Latin) wanderer/pilgrim, also a type of falcon
Tiercel: male falcon, also coming from third
Arinn: Eagle (Norwegian)
Audin: eagle (Norwegian)
Rook: a type of bird
If you reply with the names you like, we can help brainstorm ideas more on the train of thought you like. Good luck! I had the WORST time naming our third boy, and we accidentally had the -an ending going on too!
