A brother for Linus
We are team green with a LO on the way in about 9 weeks. (DS is Linus Matthew.) We've finally narrowed our list down to about two names for each sex. Boys: Roscoe or Miles/nn Milo, possibly Crosby as the dark horse in this race.
However, I never quit searching or considering other possibilities. My H and I both adore the nn Mac, but I feel like it needs a formal name with it. I love both Malcolm and Cormac, but H doesn't. Can you think of any other names that Mac could work for?
Or any other feedback on our final two, or suggestions, are totally welcome! Thanks!LittlePenelope, mama to Linus Matthew 12.9.10

I love Linus! I vastly prefer Miles to Roscoe. However, I don't think either name has the flair that Linus has. Too bad about Cormac, because it would be perfect. Mac could be a nickname for almost any name. However, here are a few more obvious Mac choices:
Or, you could choose a name with M A and C somewhere in there like:
Mitchell Cristoph ......you get the picture.

Oooh, I actually like Crosby best with big brother Linus' name! It is somewhat uncommon, but definitely has the same 'cool' factor and is just as recognizable. Roscoe would probably get my second vote because to me it has the same unusual draw that Linus does. Miles, and especially the nn Milo seem a bit too popular and trendy next to a rare name like Linus. However, I do think you could probably use the nn Mac for Miles since they both start with the same letter. Nicknaming doesn't have to be an exact science. Good luck! =]
