Newbie looking for Berry's opinions
My baby is due in 3 weeks (gonna be a surprise, so have to have both girl and boy name) and hubby and I still haven't decided on a boys name! So many good ones, but yet, so hard!
We have two we love for a girl, that was easy
I lean toward romantic type boys names, and hubby is coming around. Can I get your options on the following?
Oh and the middle name is going to be Hunter (hubbys grandfathers name), which does rule out certain names. For example I had Abel and Angel on the list. Not so great with Hunter...
Julian Hunter (We both keep leaning toward this, but hubby concerned a bit to feminine...)
Dylan Hunter (hubby keeps pushing Dylan, but I feel a tad too common)
Tristan Hunter (I like Tristan, but hubby doesn't for some reason )
Any other suggestions that you feel are similar to the above would be much appreciated!
And my little girls name is Ayla, so hopefully the above sound good with her name

Congrats on your pregnancy and welcome to Nameberry! Here are my thoughts on your boys list. I would eliminate Dylan and Kaiyan because they're too similar to Ayla's name. The remaining names I love in order: Julian, Tristan and Desmond. You seem to like boys names that end in "n" so here are some other suggestions.

My favorite from your list is Julian Hunter. I don't think it is feminine sounding, but a similar alternative would be Julius.
Dylan Hunter seems very common, and Dylan is very close to Ayla. Desmond and Tristan are not my taste. Kaiyan seems kre8ive, but that's just me.

Julian Hunter- this has always felt a bit too feminine for me/
Desmond Hunter- Love it, but not with Ayla.
Dylan Hunter- Much too common.
Kaiyan Hunter- Are you Chinese-American? I know a Kaiyan who is Singaporean Chinese... A bit strange with Ayla.
Tristan Hunter- I like it, but it is becoming quite common.
Evren- Close to Evan, but it is Turkish (which fits with Ayla).
Cormac Hunter- A bit different, just like Ayla... but still easily recognizable.
Kian- A more recognizable form of Kaiyan. Keane, Kieran, Killian, Caelum, and Keegan are all a bit more acceptable forms.
Caspian- Just cool, and a bit more sensitive like Julian... but I worry Julian would get mixed up with Julianne.
Malcolm- Same style as Desmond.INTP Anthropologist Living in the centre of China, married to a Persian, and just enjoying a completely unpredictable life
