    Still stuck on baby #3!!!

    Beyond frustrated in our search to name our third boy, who will join brothers Griffin and Corbin. Their -in endings were a coincidence but now I am really torn about whether this baby should also have the same ending. At first I thought definitely not because I am not really a fan of matching names for siblings, plus if I ever had a fourth (which I am not planning on) then I would definitely feel obligated to continue with that. However, non -in names just seem very out of place. For instance, my top two right now are Lincoln and Silas. Of the two, I think I prefer Silas but I feel like Lincoln fits better in the sibset. Am I reading too much into it? Thoughts and opinions appreciated.

    Personally I love the name Lincoln and I think it fits with the sibs but if you prefer Silas I'd say go for it and don't worry about whether it fits with the rest or not. I think the baby is an individual who will grow with/into the family so by the time he's a year old (or less) it'll feel like his name fits in perfectly!

    Sorry if you don't get that but it makes sense in my head
    My Favorites:

    Colette Kristine. Alice Evanna. Gemma Elizabeth. Mabel Verity. Rosalie Grace.

    Jack Jeffrey. Carson Luke. Felix James. Leo Patrick. River Justin.


    can't wait to marry my love!

    I think I would go with a name ending in "n" but not necessarily "in". While I like Silas - Lincoln does work better with Griffin and Corbin.

    Other ideas:

    Benson
    Dalton
    Declan
    Ewan
    Harlan
    Keaton
    Lachlan
    Preston
    Saxon
    Trenton
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    Both options are nice. What if you used both? Lincoln Silas is a great name.
