    Gus or Shep? Or....

    I'm currently 7 months pregnant with our second boy and cannot for the life of me, decide on a name! My husband and I both like Gus and Shep.. we want a short name or 2 syllable name, nothing popular.. we like older, unique names. We haven't thought of any middle names either.. we named our first son Silas! I'm so indecisive and need your help, please

    Is it just Gus or Shep, or is it August and Shepherd? Both are still short, punchy, and two-syllables and I love both! Plus you get a more formal first name that fits better IMO with Silas. I would probably go with Shep/Shepherd because Silas and August both have that long S sound at the end, and it's a little matchy, but not too much. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

    I prefer Gus as Shep is a popular dogs name where I live. Have you thought about August? Silas and August would be lovely together!
