    I do not like Carter. It is super trendy and I've always considered it a name that doesn't age well. From your list, I like Max and Jake.

    The trouble with a lot of occupational names for me is that I hear them differently than some people. For example, Carter sounds like "cart her", Rider/Ryder sounds like "ride her , Hunter as "hunt her"...well, you get the picture! Surnames of former US Presidents are super trendy and I would avoid them like the plague. Roman makes me think of felon Roman Polanski so that name holds little appeal for me. Jed and Jake need their full names. Maximus is too heavy on the macho swagger. From your list, I like Adam the best with Preston coming in second place.

    One of my co-workers is pregnant and they chose the name Carter. It isn't my cup of tea, but there is nothing really wrong with it. I just don't feel excited about it. It seems bland and trendy. It is a cool name that will fit in well though and it is modern and likeable.

    Carter is a little popular for my taste but it is a nice name and I see it's appeal. If it's what you love though don't let it's popularity disuade you. I'm all for going with your heart when it comes to names!
