Third baby boy coming any day! Name crisis!
I have been on bed rest for 8 weeks and am now safely in the 36th week! Contractions ten minutes apart, and still do not have an agreed upon name.
Older siblings Rocco and Cannon
I LOVE the name Maverick. My husband is on the fence. His suggestions:
I can't let go of maverick. Any other names that are strong, unique and manly. Open to suggestions please!
Getting nervous for labor! Yikes!

I have to agree with boyandgirl. Rocco, Cannon and Sterling would make a great sibling trio! Sorry to say this but I find Maverick a really ridiculous word for a name. To me, it's like calling a boy "Rule Breaker" or "Independent Thinker". Too much macho swagger for my comfort level. Did you know that maverick is also defined as the name of an unbranded herd animal (eg. motherless calf)? Magnum is also questionable (isn't it a gun?). Sterling, Wilder and Thor would be the only names I would consider.

Maverick would be great in the middle! I know someone with a dog name Maverick and I think it is too tied to Tom Cruise in Top Gun.
Magnum is too close to Magnum P.I. and the gun.
Sterling is my favorite from your list. Some people don't think it is very masculine.

pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
(if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )
