Thread: Easton River: what do you think?

I agree that the combo Easton River sounds like a description of a THING rather than a person's name. However, the fact that we don't often use our middle names in real life makes that less important. It would be fine to use only if your surname isn't a word too (eg. Easton River Woods). A word of caution: Easton (as well as Weston) is a very trendy name so it may not be as unique as you think. Last year in the US, Easton cracked the top 100 most popular names at No# 96 (that's 3,926 boys). Although it may have a "cool" meaning unknown to other people for you, many parents love the name enough to use it for their sons.All the best,

I agree with mischa. The meaning may have a nice, unique meaning to you but in reality, the name isn't unique.Current favorites:
Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

Yup. This sounds like a case of parents thinking they've come up with a "unique" name, when really it's quite trendy and common. And also very modern.
Definitely agree that the combo is way too "geographical." River is a fine name, though. Are there any other names you like that we could use to help come up with a better combo?Newlywed and will be TTC soon.
Currently thinking of:
Mattias Graham, Cassian James, Asa Nathaniel, Theodore Henry
Leonora Pearl, Aurelia Sarai, Felicity Susanna, Calista June
