    Name That Toon

    Hello wise berries,

    We are expecting a baby boy, our firstborn, in December. I would appreciate any of your feedback or insights into our name situation.

    Our last name is Toon. He is Justin, I am Kelly.

    He does not like "word" names, virtue names, or anything really unusual. I like westerns, mid century modern, classic sci-fi, and much of my inspiration comes into my taste in names.

    He has responded well to

    Griffin (the only name which he has volunteered)
    Walker
    Marshall
    Justus

    Names I like that I think he could warm up to:

    Victor
    Harvey
    Serling
    Gustav
    Eames

    Middle name would preferably be Dale, but other family names are

    Kenneth
    Ferree
    Woodford
    Burlingame
    Lawrence
    James
    Benjamin
    Samuel
    Elisha
    Nolan


    Any combination of the above using at least one family name is fine. Or use the family names for middles and give your suggestions for firsts.

    We want something that is masculine, authentic, not trying too hard, but not generic. Nothing that will be too dated in ten years. Something friendly, but strong. Creative, but conservative. A name which could belong to a good-tempered, respected, intelligent man, who could be anything from an artist to a senator.

    I look forward to your ideas, and thank you for reading

    Dale would be tricky as a middle name, since your last name is one syllable, but I like Harvey Dale from your choices. Victor Lawrence Toon sounds very dashing, as does Griffin Samuel Toon!

    ciotollo: Harvey Dale is a fave of mine. Griffin Samuel is very cool, thanks for that.

    leah marie: I like Victor Nolan, Walker Lawrence. From your suggestions, my favorite is Calvin. I tend to like names that don't have much sibilance, or that sound too floaty or soft.

    boyandgirl: If my hubs would let me, I'd be tempted to name a boy Marshall Dillon, after the Gunsmoke char and my hero.

    Some combos I am liking:

    Griffin Serling
    Gustav Eames
    Walker Dale
    Victor Marshall

    Thanks for contributing, berries!
