Gabriel Patrick calls to you so deeply that I think you should stick to your guns. Besides, you could always have a second son, whether biologically or through adoption.
If you ever did somehow go to Owen, William sounds weird as a middle. Owen Michael or Owen Gabriel make more sense to me. Owen William is awkward to say because of how close the w's are.
I say your first son should be Gabriel Patrick, and if you have a second son (and he still likes it!), Owen Michael.
Maybe get your husband to say Gabe & Logan together, and he may come around.aurora- autumn- ashwyn- bambi- bernadette- calliope- emmalou- henriette- indigo- ione- january- lark- leela- llewellyn- lydia- marnie- molly- narnia- noelle- oralee- penelope- philomena- rain- raven- roxy- ruby- snow- tessa- thora- waverly- willow- winter- wren- zoe | abel- aesop- angus- banjo- bartholomew- bear- bruce- burkley- darwin- elliot- finn- flynn- foster- henry- indigo - knox - laszlo - lyle - navy - nemo - noah - otis - oakley - rainn - thatcher - thomas - thompson - titus - zen

Gabriel Owen would be the perfect name for son #1. It uses your favorite first name and his favorite name. Liam Patrick would be perfect for son #2 because you still get to use Patrick and he get to honor through Liam. It's a win-win situation for both of you!
Our front runner for a boy is Frederick. It's not my #1 name but I love that SO is so in love with it (and it honors his dad). For that reason, we will use it.Current favorites:
Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

I voted for Gabriel Patrick. I love both names. Patrick is one of my guilty pleasure names. Everyone seems to think its a good idea to compromise so I was wondering how you felt about using 2 middle names. You could use Gabriel Patrick Owen or Gabriel Owen Patrick.
I like casilda's suggestion of naming your first son Gabriel Owen and your second son Liam Patrick. It makes a cute sibset too.Mommy to: Samuel Elliot ~5/4/10~

Owen William sounded weird to me too - but I thought it was because of the endings "n" and "m" that didn't sound quite right. But, good eye (and ear!) it very well could be the "w"s instead! And I appreciate the other things you've said as well: "Gabriel Patrick calls to you so deeply", "I say your first son should be Gabriel Patrick, and if you have a second son (and he still likes it!), Owen Michael." And, you're right, even when I brought it up, he doesn't see the correlation between Owen and Logan, but then again women are so much more in tune with making mountains out of molehills - lolOne day we'll be a family. Right now it's just us 2!
