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:
Ace—GP (More trendy than the others, but I kind of like it)
Eric/Erik (prefer it with a K)
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
I'm totally open to other names, and combos we haven't thought of. Thanks in advance for your help!
