    help us agree!

    So my lovely fiancee and I cannot agree on any boy names. Girls names are SO easy to love for us. We both like feminine, kinda vintage little girls that we can picture being cute little blonde hair, blue eyed babies.

    But, for boys we disagree on everything. I like names that are classic but less used than say Benjamin or Matthew. He likes strong, masculine names that are more "normal". The only name we've both agreed on is Jack, and really it's because we can both envision a mini-him who's just as mischievous and clever as he was as a kid with that name. I think we both pick names based on if we can really imagine a kid with the name that fits the personality that we picture. Which is kind of ridiculous because kids can turn out any way, but we typically picture strong willed, smart, very hands on kids that get into plenty of harmless trouble. Think Tom Sawyer.

    So pleaseeee help us find some boy names we agree on that also fit the girls names we love! If you have any suggestions for names to add on to our girls, that's cool too!! Our names are Emily and Justin by the way, just so you don't offer those ones up

    Agreed Upon Girls:
    Colette - first choice, we both absolutely LOVE this name.
    Alice - newly added to the list
    Mabel - I like this one way more than he does..
    Aurelia - He likes more than I do, but I still think it's pretty.

    My boys:
    Jack
    Felix - thinks it's a cat name
    Leon/Leo - again cat name
    Maxwell - hates Max
    Percy - just not happening for him
    Gregory - I love the nn Grey, he can't get past Greg
    Ronan - nope.

    His guys:
    Jack
    and he doesn't really give many of his own name picks.
    My Favorites:

    Colette Kristine. Alice Evanna. Gemma Elizabeth. Mabel Verity. Rosalie Grace.

    Jack Jeffrey. Carson Luke. Felix James. Leo Patrick. River Justin.

    Thanks for all your suggestions!! I love Henry nn Huck, Theo, and August but he doesn't like any of them.

    I just want to find out what style of names he likes but that seems impossible too. I'm getting kinda frustrated which is stupid because we're far from ttc, I just have baby fever for the first time in a while.

    I sent him this list of names to see which kind he likes and he doesn't like any:
    Rhodes
    Kit
    August
    Kieran
    Theo
    Samson
    Axel
    Grey
    Asher
    Ivan
    Hugo
    Felix
    Sullivan
    Levi
    Neil
    Zachary
    Lincoln

    All he said was ":|" sooo then I sent him some more traditional names to see maybe if he leaned more that way:
    Benjamin
    Andrew
    Nathan
    Oliver
    Sebastian
    Aaron
    Charlie
    Adam
    Paul
    Timothy
    Willem
    Harrison
    Philip
    Gregory
    Abraham
    Silas
    Noah
    Tristan
    Quincy

    And nothing still!! I feel like I've said every type and every baby boy name on this site. HELP!

    Graeme (GRAY-əm) (nn Grey)
    Eben (nn Ben)
    Lee
    Ezra
    Cian / Kian
    Everett
    Keir
    Flynn
    Sayer
    Alden
    Jude
    Wynn
    Ewan
    Finn
    Dashiell (nn Dash)
    Rhett
    Milo / Miles
    Jago

    I could be off, but I wonder if he's developed some sort of attachment to Jack and is reluctant to talk about other names because they're not Jack?
