I can't belive I'm posting here
We are having a third in January and were told at the 12 week scan it was most likely a girl. However, I went to an elective ultrasound yesterday and it was most definitely a boy!!! This will be our first (and only) boy after two girls and we were not prepared to come up with a boy name. My husband likes traditional "manly" names, like Jim, John, and Rob (which aren't getting anywhere with me). This is ironic since our girls are Logan Sophia and Holland Georgiana (much more "modern"). Anyway, we've thrown back and forth a lot of names (Rex, Graham, and a few others) and I think maybe we are settled on MacGregor with "Mac" for short, which gives my husband his manly name thing. However, we need a middle name and I'm stumped. My husband's name is Stephen and our last name ends in -ley. I thought about using his first name as the middle, but I don't love it. My husband also likes John since that's a family name on his side, but I REALLY don't love that one. I'm actually liking Ellis, which was one of my grandfather's names. My brother's first name is Preston and I really like it as a name, though I am not sure it flows well. So, thoughts on a middle name to go with MacGregor?

Let's see you have...
Logan Sophia -ley
Holland Georgiana -ley
MacGregor 'Mac' (Edison ? )-ley
Congrats on having a son !
Lovely names let's see, you've managed not to repeat initials so that's kind of nice maybe you can continue that,
Stephen would flow well but if you don't love it and it does repeat the s maybe don't worry about it...
Ellis I like I think sounds great, but they you do have to very surnamey names ( Ellis is a surname in my family) this would be my fav of your suggestions but for that, not that that really matters just something to be aware of.
Preston the rs in macgregor seem to make this one less usable, they catch on it and it flows poorly :-/
John I honestly really like this but if you don't that what matters...
ELLIS like you said
