    We can never agree...

    I'm sure this is a common issue but my husband and I literally cannot agree on a name we like and I think it's because we have such different styles. I like names that are more modern sounding, but not "made up" and he goes for the ultra traditional. Here's some examples of what I like and what he likes, and hopefully you guys can help me find a few names that are somewhere in the middle so we can maybe find SOMETHING we like enough to use.

    My favorites:
    Holden
    Noah
    Nolan
    Nathan (Nate)
    Calvin (or anything with the nickname Cal)
    Hudson
    Chase
    James
    Lucian
    Peter

    And he likes things like:
    Nicholas
    Alexander
    John
    Christopher
    William
    Anthony
    Michael
    Vincent
    Robert
    Thomas

    I don't hate his name choices but I just prefer something a little fresher and less common. Does anyone know what we could use?

    What about Nathaniel? It's a bit more classic than Nathaniel (in my opinion) and fits in with your husband's favorites. It's only a few letters away from one of your favorites (Nathan) and can not only get the same nickname of Nate but could go by Nathan as well.

    Overall, your styles aren't too different.

    Some other suggestions:

    Edmund
    Tristan
    Martin
    Thaddeus

    Henry Nathaniel (3) and Julia Paige (1)

    Current favorites:
    Bennett - Emmett - Felix - Oliver - Owen - Preston - Samuel
    Abigail - Claire - Clara - Hope - Lydia - Maude - Molly

    I second the suggestion of Nathaniel nn Nate!

    Some of the names on your list seem compatible with your husbands - you both like classics, his are just more ultra traditional where as yours are more modern and quirky!

    Could he come around on Noah, James or Peter?

    Or how about:
    Callum or Caleb nn Cal
    Isaac
    Luke
    Micah
    Miles
    Nicholas (I know it's on his list! But nn Cole?)
    Theodore

    Thank you! Caleb has been catching my eye lately actually and for some reason it didnt occur to me that we could nickname him Cal... might have to run that one by him. And I like Miles and Tristan- he vetoed Travis which I really like but maybe Tristan- they start with the same sound so who knows. Thanks

    How about using Nicholas, but calling him Nico? Nico seems like it could fit into your style.
