    need boy name help!

    we can't really agree on anything and I fear we'll never find a name we LOVE.

    here's where we're at:

    Middle name will be Raymond. our last name is 3 syllables and starts with H and I don't like alliteration.

    I like:
    Gavin - I fear it may be too "trendy", DH doesn't LOVE it
    Colin - I like it a lot, but don't love it
    Conor - like it alot but don't love it
    Benjamin - we both like Ben. can we do Ben and not Benjamin? (fear Benajamin and our 3 syllable last name is too much) too popular?

    DH likes:
    Christopher
    Joshua

    I don't like either. even remotely. too biblical and just NMS.

    thoughts on these names or suggestions on others we might like?

    Lots of great names there. You can't go wrong.

    I think you can definitely use Ben on its own! I really like this.

    You could also use Benard, Benedict, Benen, Bennett or Bentley. Or Eben, Korben or Harben. How about..

    Bennett Raymond

    Good luck!

    thanks for responding! I like Bennett! I will run that by DH. I bet he thinks it's too trnedy. but, I like it!

    what are opinions on Gavin? is this too trendy/popular?

    So the only one you both like a lot right now is Ben? How about Bennett instead of Benjamin?

    2 syllables flows better with your last name... Of course Raymond is also 2 syllables... but I like the t ending better than 2 syllables ending in n with Raymond. Also R ending names kind of run into the R in Raymond. Some ideas:

    Bennett
    Emmett
    Everett
    Arlo
    August
    Maxwell nn Max
    Samuel nn Sam
    Finn
    Wesley nn Wes
    Harvey

    If you don't mind r ending names:
    Archer
    Asher
    Spencer
    Sawyer

    I really keep coming back to Gavin and while DH will let me be the ultimate decider, I know he's not totally on board with it.

    emsky - I really like Emmett - but that's the name of the family bar. lol. not sure how weird that would be.

    love Sam and Max - but already have those in the family.
