    Names for our son

    Hi

    I'm expecting our first in 4 weeks and having trouble picking a an me for our boy. We have a short list of two:

    - Finn - but has it become too popular? Will I be picking the next up and coming trend?
    - Evan - it's very close to our favourite girls name, which we couldn't then use for a future girl (so not ideal).

    Are there any other names we should consider and/or what is your favourite?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I wouldn't decide against Finn just because of its popularity. According to social security baby names, Finn ranks at 250 for the year 2013. That's really not too bad; not even top 100. If that's the name you love, then go for it. I don't think it will ever be so popular where there's gonna be like 5 Finns in one class. If you still aren't sure about Finn, then what about Flynn? Or you could use a longer version of Finn to use the nickname Finn. Maybe Finnegan?

    If Evan is too close to your favorite girls name and you plan on having more kids, I would hold off on using it. If your next child is a girl, then you won't have to sacrifice your favorite girl name because you had already used Evan

    I love Finn. It's my favorite boy's name, and I'm pretty sure I would use it no matter how popular it becomes.

    As for Evan, it's currently ranked #55 in the U.S., so it's possibly more common than Finn in your area, if you live in the states. If it's your favorite boy's name, I don't think you'd be sacrificing anything by using it instead of saving a similar name for a future daughter. There's no guarantee you'll even have a daughter, and you still get to use a favorite name for your son.

    Other suggestions:
    Brian
    Declan
    Eben
    Ethan
    Flynn
    Gavin
    Glen/Glenn
    Ian
    Nathan
    Nolan
    Owen
    Penn
    Ryan
