    Keep, Toss, Add--Need help with my list

    DH and I found out last week that we are expecting a little boy, and in the last week or so we came up with a list. Nothing has really struck either one of us as THE ONE, and I wanted some more inspiration to see if there are any great names out there that we may have missed.

    A little bit of information about us: Our last name begins with an S and ends with -es. I guess I could describe our naming style as we like well-known (but nothing that sounds too trendy), but not old-fashioned. We have a few exceptions, but that's generally what I have seen we've been leaning towards.

    Here is the list:

    First Names

    Ace—GP (More trendy than the others, but I kind of like it)
    Alexander
    Benjamin
    Blake
    Brian
    Caleb
    Chance
    Cole
    Dominic
    Eric/Erik (prefer it with a K)
    Garrett
    Gavin
    Grant
    Hunter
    Jack
    Jake
    Jarrett
    Miles
    Reid
    Travis
    Trent

    Middle Names

    James--Not an option for a first name due to some negative associations that DH has with people with this name
    Patrick--Not a fan for the FN, but this is a family name to honor my late uncle
    Karel—This is Charles in Czech...was my great grandfather's FN...more of a guilty pleasure name, but I really do love it.
    Richard--Family name in DH's family. It's his grandfather's, uncle's, and cousin's FN, as well as DH's MN. Don't want to use it a FN, but we agreed we could put it in the MN spot

    FN/MN Combos

    Alexander James
    Dominic Richard
    Erik James
    Erik Reid
    Ace Richard—GP
    Dominic Reid

    I'm totally open to other names, and combos we haven't thought of. Thanks in advance for your help!
