    Help, I'm tired of searching for the perfect name.

    I need help, I've almost reached the point where I'm tired of looking at baby names (unbelievable, right?). My family have veto'd the vast majority of names that I've put out as possibilities. The only 2 names left on the list are Killian (probably with the traditional Irish spelling Cillian ) and Matthew. While I obviously really like these names (I suggested them after all) they lack the something special that I always thought the name I'd choose would have. I think they're probably a bit too common.

    To get to the point... What would you choose to name a boy with the surname Christie?

    I'm sorry you are tired of it - sometimes taking a break DOES help.
    And, not to be offensive, but you don't REALLY have to give anyone veto power except your partner...
    I think Christie could go easily with many boy names, you could go surname or traditional (which it sounds like you are leaning that way).
    Personally, I'd be thinking:
    Walter Christie
    Connor Christie
    George () Christie
    James Christie
    ...
    Maybe if you gave us your vetoed list we could come up with more off of those.

    Veto was the wrong word to use. They disliked the names and that made the names drop in my opinion too. The baby's father isn't in the picture so my family are going to be a huge part in this child's life. If I had my heart set on a name they weren't fond of, I'd still choose it but I haven't found a name like that yet.

    A few of the names my list had included:
    Killian/Cillian
    Matthew
    Bennett
    Donnacha (DUN-a-kah)
    Senan (SEN-in)
    Griffin
    River
    Jasper

    I like names that are Irish, nature or literary in nature.

    I love Bennett and River. Also, Cabot and Rio sound good w/your surname.
