Thoughts on Corban?
Since my lovely husband and I are at opposite ends of the name spectrum finding a boys name we both like (forget love!) has been quite the daunting task. And then he suggested Corey. To which I originally balked. It's a girls name! Can you name ONE Corey that we know who isn't...or wasn't...a delinquent and menace to society!! Corey will never grow up...can you picture a 40 yr old man name Corey!!? All there are legit concerns of mine!
But I then had a thought...what if I could find a name that could be shortened to Corey. That way when the time comes to fill out college & job applications he can have a stronger- more grown up name. Enter Corban.
However I've never met a Corban, or have even heard of a Corban. Other than Bruce Willis in The 5th Element
So Yay...or nay? What's the word on Corban Bryce? And as always- suggestions are always welcome!

I also prefer the more authentic Corbin spelling, but I really like the name! Corbin Bryce is a great combo. If you're worried about it being "too out there," Corbin is ranked #221 in US popularity, so it's definitely not unheard of.
Cormac (no k)
Conrad (your husband could call him Corey and you could call him Cord)
I have to say, though, that I like Corbin the best!
ETA: Corey is actually a male name, so you don't have to worry about that part, at least.
