Having Trouble picking a name for our baby boy.. PLEASE HELP!
Im 25 Weeks Pregnant & having such a hard time deciding on a name. My fiance & I completely dissagree on the names "/ Babies Last name will be Black.
Jace (we both like)
Jaxson (dad LOVES,but im afraid everyone calling him JACK BLACK)
Jacob (we both like, but think its very popular)
Nathaniel (Shorten to Nate)
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Congrats on your pregnancy
Jace - Nothing wrong with it, but it sounds very choppy with your last name.
Jaxson - I think the whole "Jack Black" thing is unavoidable with this, but he is fading from popularity somewhat. But I would definitely spell it 'Jackson'.
Jacob - Jacob Black is the werewolf in 'Twilight', so this is an absolute no.
Nathaniel (Shorten to Nate) - My favorite from your list
Tanner - 'Tanner Black' sounds like a description of a paint color, sorry.
Trey - Same as Jace, this sounds a bit choppy with a one-syllable last name.
Wyatt - This was my favorite until I realized 'Wyatt Black' sounds a lot like 'White Black' when you say it fast.
Johnathon - I don't mind it spelled 'Jonathan'.
Nicholas - My second favorite from your list.
James/Jameson, Talan (pronounced like "talon"), Sawyer, Patton, Archer, Sebastian, William, Jacoby (pronounced "Jah-KO-bee")?
Sorry, I'm not great at suggestions, but good luck!k♥m

Jace, Jaxon (spelled with an x), Wyatt, and Johnathan (with an extra h) all feel extremely trendy... not at all classic. To quote the Brits on here, they are almost 'chavvy' to me. Trey feels very 1980s. Nathaniel, and Nicholas are all very, very, very common. Those are classic names, though, that will age well and never seem old. Both seem classy, not at all 'chavvy'. Tanner is ok, except that it makes it sound like the local tanner is black... I'd avoid noun or occupation names with Black (i.e. Griffin, Cole, ClintFinn, Caspian, Jasper, Cooper, Tucker, Spencer, Porter, Archer, River, etc.). Jacob doesn't work with Black, as it will slur to become Jacoblack. With Black, avoid names that end in a -c/-ck/-k or -b, or are 1 syllable (will be choppy).
Alexander Black, nn Alex, Xan, Xander, or Anders

Jace (we both like) - This one is okay, it's not my style, but it's a nice name.
Jaxson (dad LOVES,but im afraid everyone calling him JACK BLACK) - I agree with other berries that he will most likely be called Jack Black, however, if you do use this name I would consider spelling it Jackson, Jaxson is very trendy and as a teacher it gets old having to deal with creative spellings.
Jacob (we both like, but think its very popular) - Popular and what ditto what greyer said.
Nathaniel (Shorten to Nate) -I really like this one! Nathaniel or Nate Black sounds very handsome! Great choice!
Tanner - This one is one of my likes as well!
Trey - This one is okay.
Wyatt - Hmmmm... I like this name but where I live it's super popular.
Johnathon - I like it.
Nicholas - I think this one is a good choice, Nicholas Black is a great name.
