    I was so sure...

    I was having a girl... So was DH, we were both so sure to the point that we didn't even discuss boy names and we were calling "her" Ruby... IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!! I can't believe it, TWO boys!!! I'll admit I'm a little bit sad as I was getting myself used to the idea of a girl, but I'm just very very happy that the ultrasound went well and that everything looked as healthy as can be. Now to my dilemma, DH hates all of the boys names I like. He has actually said that the only boys name he likes is Callum Rhys, which he describes as "epic." He said last night, sounding defeated, "We might as well just use a family name so at least it will have some meaning." He said we could use Harold (my grandfather who passed away this year), Floyd (his 96 year old grandfather) or Benjamin (not a family name, but one that we both have always thought was nice, if not a little boring.) Harold went by Hal, so I don't particularly want to use it as a first name, Hal and Cal? No thanks. Floyd is nice, Welsh like Rhys, and has a little rock n roll to it. Harold Floyd or Floyd Harold don't sound good to me. Benjamin Floyd or Benjamin Harold are both nice, but just a little boring to me. I would like to come up with some alternate names, in addition to Harold, Floyd and Benjamin that DH might like, keeping in mind the "epicness" of Callum Rhys. Can you help me? Names and name combos I like that DH is only luke warm on:

    Leo Benjamin
    Leo Conlan
    Benjamin Chase
    Miles Xavier
    Benjamin Harold
    Benjamin Floyd
    Pierce
    Graham
    Ellis
    Boyd - I don't actually like this one, but my Grandmother suggested it and DH said he liked it.
    Brady
    Grady
    Porter
    Other names I like that DH has outright vetoed:
    Leland
    Ridley
    Samuel
    Julian


    I would like to try and find something maybe closer to having Scottish/Irish/Welsh roots, but obviously that's not too important. PLEASE HELP!!!

    Thanks you, Mischa... I was looking at someone else's post and they listed Peregrin, similar to Peregine... What do we think about Peregrine as a middle name? DH loves Falcons (lol, I know, I know) and maybe he will think that is an epic middle name? I'm going out on a limb here.

    I love:
    Gregor - although it makes me think of Gregor Clegane and he was not the nicest GoT character.
    Ronan
    Douglas
    Desmond
    Vaughn

    I love Peregrine for a first name or middle name. It's an awesome choice! I would describe it as "epic"!
    All the best,

    I think Peregrine is a little too heavy as a first name... Can you help with some combos with it in the middle? I am thinking:

    Douglas Peregrine
    Vaughn Peregrine
    Floyd Peregrine
