    Hm, too bad. Let's see...these will probably be quite random...

    Dean -- James (or is James one of your son's middles?), Robert/Robin, Glen, Geoffrey, Sean, Scot, or Roland?

    Abraham -- Bram, Abram, Isaac, Alexander, Alasdair/Alastair/Alistair, Graham, or Moses (though Moses might not solve the long-beard problem)?

    Blaise -- Pascal, Antoine, Jerome, Soren, or Louis?

    Augusten (I don't like Gus either, though I do like August/Augusten/Augustine) -- Aurel/Aurelian/Aurelius, Valerian, Austin, Julian/Julius, Lucian/Lucien/Lucius, or Tarquin?

    Silas -- Silvanus/Sylvanus/Sylvan, Sebastian, Barnabas, Paul, Timothy, Rufus, Linus, Calvin, Erastus, Simon, or Titus?

    Any of these strike your fancy? Best wishes!

    Still dreaming:
    Tobias Rory Benjamin ~ Crispin Isaiah ~ Ransom Horatio ~ Lucius Olórin ~ James Deliverance
    Una Marguerite/Oona Sylvestra ~ Jessamyn Agnes ~ Branwen Evangeline ~ Alice Emmanuelle ~ Christiana Linnet

    Oh, dear! You have a challenge ahead of you! His "reasons" make me think he could come up with a weird reason for every name. You might have to go with a more classic/traditional name.

    Here's some suggestions:
    Benjamin
    John
    William
    Henry
    Everett
    Grant
    Elliot
    Ryan
    Vincent
    Mom to Nora.

    Current favorites:
    Declan James (Dex). Griffin James (Finn). Euan James. Graham Jameson. August James (Gus). John Jameson (Johnny). Wesley James (Wes).

    Gwyneth Eliza (Gwen). Elise Hannah. Lucy Johanna. Josephine Maeve (Josie). Bronwen Elise (Bonnie). Eve Johanna (Evie). Bonnie Eliza.

    @auroradawn... YES DS middle name is James!

    I really like Alasdair, Abram, Linus, and Sebastian. But our last name beings with AL and DH alsready vetoed Alma for girls due to that... I will try for Abram and see about Linus! As for sebastian we know 3!!! So its a little too popular for me to want to actually use!

    @Sllah... I know his reasons are crazy! When I wanted to name our first son Atticus he said it sounded like Attic... I told him that YES it did sound a little like attic but who cares... apparently he did!!! LOL

    I like Everett, Grant and Vincent! Vincent IS already on our list and has been DH approved! I like Grant but Im not sure is sounds good in Spanish which is what we speak at home and the only language that DH's family speaks.... Maybe he will go for everett???

    Any other suggestions?
