    Smile It's a boy!!! Now what do we name him?!

    Found out we are having a boy in early February. Hubby and I want a preppy name that is 3+ syllables with good nickname possibilities. Last name is very short: Cruise, which can seem choppy at times.

    A couple names we are considering but not sold 100%:

    Calloway Cruise "Cal"
    Callahan Cruise "Cal"
    Theodore Cruise "Theo"

    Open to other ideas as well, they just need to follow the same guidelines of 3+ syllables and Ivy league sounding.

    Thanks Nameberries

    Oh, middle name will be John... or John + a second middle with strong family meaning. We are worried about flow issues.
    Happily married and expecting our first cutie pie, a baby boy, in the beginning of February.

    Congrats
    I love a preppy name. Both Cal options are very nice.
    I like Hal too - Hamilton?

    They're all lovely. But Calloway Cruise sounds brilliant, like a hero in a film noir and I do adore Cal, so that one may be my favourite

    I also like Calloway Cruise, but if you're worried about Cruise sounding choppy, is Cal Cruise too short for you? I think it's pretty suave myself.

    I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.
