It's a BOY! My list of 50 names I don't hate.
We found out yesterday we are expecting our second little boy! Very excited, but now comes the challenge - finding a name we love as much as Grant! I just pasted the top 1,000 into a spreadsheet and deleted everything I didn't like, leaving me with about 50 I don't hate. Think "the" name is among them?? Gosh I hope so!
*Name we both like, at least a little.*
Jake - but so popular
Wesley or Weston - probably top contender, and though I love Wes I'm not 100% on either full name
Gavin - but we are cautious of all G names as we sometimes call Grant, "G"
Emmett - me more so than dh, he doesn't hate it but I doubt would settle on it
Calvin - again, me more than him. NN Cal
Garrett - we both love but sounds too close to Grant, right?
Everett - a family name, but in an almost-over done way
Dean - we both *like* Dean...don't love it.
Arthur- a family name, hate the NN Art though, any cooler nicknames out there?
Philip- hate nn Phil, though Flip would be a fun nn later in life
*Names we haven't really discussed at length, could be maybes?*
Hugh- Hugh & Grant....would that be a no-go?
*Names Husband has said "no" to. Some are very hard, clear no's - but a couple I might be able to have some sway*
Elijah/ Elias nn Eli
Barrett nn Bear
Malcolm- nn Mac
Clark- family name, dh says it reminds him of Griswold
*Names DH likes and I'm "eh" about*
Craig- DH favorite...really not a fan.
Brock - probably my favorite of his pics, but it seems a bit overly-masculine to me

I just responded to your other thread about needing to find more names. I think you have a really great list unfortunately if you are worried about popularity a lot of your names are in the top 1000. I only say this cause you mentioned Isla’s name.
On your husbands “no” list I really love Abel and Dexter though I think they are both in the 100-400 range, also Leon instead of Leo. (I feel like Leon works better for your sib-set.) Anyway check out the other thread for suggestions.EXPECTING OUR FIRST, A GIRL, IN MAY 2016.

From the list of names you agree on I like: Arthur, Everett and Dean. I personally wouldn't go with Garrett because it is too close to Grant... From all of them I like Arthur the most. If you want another nickname for it Bear is one (since Arthur means bear).
From the list you haven't really talked about, I like Levi. It goes well with Grant and while it is not uncommon at the moment it isn't too popular.
Names from your last list that I like are: Elijah, Jack, Leo, Declan, Abel, Rowan, Dexter, Bram, Ronan, Clark and Finn. But I really would try to focus on finding something you both love...
My favorites overall are: Arthur, Levi, Elijah, Abel and Dexter.
Just call me Pandora...
Bensiabel, Orpheus, Thorsten, Florian, Gunnar, Felix, Azrael,
Gaia, Annabel, Zenobia, Diana, Audrey, Flora, Isadora
