Sailor? Weylin? MacLeod?
I am 30 weeks pregnant with our second little boy.
Our first son's name is Finn Wilde. We have a two syllable Irish last name that begins with M.
I really like the name Sailor Yeats for baby boy #2. We wanted to do another author's last name for the middle name, and I like the way Yeats sounds (pronounced Yates, as in William Butler Yeats).
But I haven't had a very positive response to Sailor. What do you think?
We also like the name Weylin, as it keeps with the celtic/irish name theme, and MacLeod (pronounce Muh-Cloud) but we would call him Mac.
Does a two syllable first name sound too redundant with our two syllable last name?
Would a one syllable name be better?
Rhys (pronounced Reese)
Opinions would be greatly appreciated! We are really having trouble with this one!

Sailor, Weylan and MacLeod don't really grab me. Sailor Yeats sounds like a title for a naval officer rather than a person's name. It also is kind of themey with Finn (do you happen to like sailing and fishing? ). Weylan Yeats has a repetive "ay" sound and MacLeod Yeats would be a great name for a law firm. Since both Finn and Wilde are one-syllable, I'm loving the sound of Jack Yeats as a sibling. Second choice would be Luke Yeats. I like the name Rhys but it shares an "s" ending with Yeats so the flow isn't ideal.All the best,
