Boy # 2 - Can't agree on a name!!
Hello! We are due in September, and I seem to be the only one with name suggestions while dh veto's everything! Our first lo's name is Corbin James F. I am all about different, but not too out there. Suggestions would be great!!
Dh doesn't like:
Killian (because it reminds him of the beer)
Ryder (which was torn up by another baby site I belong to..)
And I have nixed:
Lincoln (I like the name...only we have a cat named Lincoln!)
He is on the fence for Cohen, and we are both on the fence for Tyrion (GoT fans...)
We both agreed that we didn't want any names that begin with 'F' due to our last name.
Thanks so much!!!

Corbin James is a wonderful name!
All your names are nice. Keep in mind that using Cohen as a given name is considered an offensive by the Jewish community. As for Tyrion —*have you read the GRR Martin novels? While he comes across as a sympathetic character in the TV adaptation, he does a lot of questionable things in the later novels. I think it's a cool name and I like the character but he's hardly someone I would want to name a son after!

In regards to Cohen I dislike the rise of this name in popularity Cohen/Kohen is the Hebrew word for priest along with being a common Jewish surname. Cohen is a sacred title in Judaism. A title you need to be born into. The closest comparison would be naming your child messiah, although it's still not an exact comparison. It's a form of cultural appropriation when the name is used by non-Jews. I just find it odd maybe because of my mother being Jewish it just feels strange because I'm exposed to this culture either way I wouldn't use this name.
As for Tyrion that isn't my style I find the name visually unappealing. Sorry for the negativity.
