    I think you should choose an honour name from each of your families

    Alder Everett Ross - I really like this one because it honours both grandfathers.

    Love Fitz, but I think the combos with Grey sound best. I would def use at least one family name, so that eliminates Atticus Grey. Leaving:

    Alder Franklin Grey - prob my favorite.
    Alder Everett Grey - nice too.
    Alder Marion Grey - 2nd fave flow-wise, but I chose Franklin Grey for its masculinity.

    thanks everyone! it's pretty close! we're having a hard time deciding! i love the idea of honoring both our fathers, but it seems like a mouthful "everett ross". my husband is in love with marion fitz/grey, but with Alder, although masculine, it is definitely a softer name in my opinion and pairing it with marion grey/fitz doesn't add any more strength to it. It is lovely though, hmm. My grandfather :: fitz :: is dying of cancer and I know it would mean a lot to my mother and her family, but Grey is very lovely too and was our first choice..along with the masculine Franklin... Quinlan was a contender for a first name and when i retired it my sister grabbed ahold and declared she'd name her future son this ...now you can't claim names, but i feel bad "taking it back" ... man this seems almost harder than the first name! Thanks for your input/votes!

    My favorite combination isn't an option in the poll: Alder Franklin Ross. I like that it honors both sides of his family and has a very handsome ring to it.

    Sorry I missed the discussion about Alder, I rather like it! Alden/Aldan was a favorite of mine until Aiden hit the charts, so it is seems familiar and beloved.
