    Need help - 2 syllable boy name

    Hi berries - I am having a baby boy in December and my husband and I are stumped on names. Our last name is one syllable and therefore I think we need a name that is 2-3 syllables. We have a daughter Bali Drew (Pronounced like Bally, the handbags but named after the island!) . I want something unique but still strong for a boy. Here are a few I like to give you an idea of our style..Anderson, Asher, Beckham, Griffin, Harrison, Luca, Warner... Any suggestions? THANKS everyone for your advice!

    Congrats in advance for December. I totally agree with you that 1 syllable last names usually work better with a 2 or 3 syllable first and middle name for either a 2-3-1 or 3-2-1 syllable count. With the exception of Luca, the pattern that I see in your short list are surnames. I'll link the last name list for you.

    I'd also totally avoid another place name for your son. The theme should be subtle and not so obviously blatant when it comes to children's name themes. You could also look at I think it's called the Designer's list as well.
