    Ansel and Linus

    Do they go well together? My grandpa loved Ansel Adams pictures so I thought it'd be a fun way to honor him.

    Combos would probably be Linus Frederick and Ansel something (but the middles could be switched!). Any middle name ideas?

    Frederick is SO's dad's middle name.

    Some potential names (variants okay):

    John
    William
    Peter
    Thomas
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    I really love the name Ansel. I think Ansel Thomas sounds nice, I've always thought John was so common and sort of plain for my taste. Have you considered Ansel Frederick?

    I like Linus a lot too. You don't see it too often, but it's not one of those crazy names that's just too out there.

    I would consider Ansel Frederick. I know SO really wants to use Frederick for our first son so I guess it ultimately depends on whether he actually likes Ansel!

    I like Ansel, but when i see "Ansel & Linus" together my brain sort of jumps straight from the An to the us....which isn't a good thing. I feel like if i knew brothers named this in real life i would accidentally call them Anus and Linsel one day.

    This might be a problem with me, and odds are it's my weirdness and no one else would have that problem.

    I like Ansel, but don't see the appeal of Linus.
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    I have loved Ansel forever.

    Linus, not so much. It reminds me of the cartoon (Peanuts, is it??)
