    Undecided

    I have a huge problem.... I absolutely love the name River for a boy.
    The problem is friends and family dislike this name they associate "old man river" with it.
    Should I just go with it?

    Second, the middle name...here's my thoughts so far and keep in mind the daddy's last name is actually the word French and he wants the name to flow...
    Middle name choices: Chace, Alexander, Phoenix, Grayson.

    River Grayson French would be my choice of the ones you listed.
    I think of River Phoenix the actor when I hear the name River. Because of that I wouldn't use the middle name Phoenix unless it doesn't bother you or you really really love it.

    River and rio are on my short lsit for my baby boy due in feb. Like you I haven't gotten good response on it. Most people say river phoenix when I mention the name. A middle name to go with river also seems a little difficult. I do really like all your middle name choices but I think none work with river. River works better w a more traditional minute especially since the last name is french. Maybe try Charles, oliver, benjamin. Sorry I wasn't more help.

    If you love River, use it. More recently than River Phoenix, Kerri Russell used it for her son. I think it has a cool vibe too it.

    My daughter was in a gymnastics class with a girl named River. I think it works better for a boy. It is the ER ending that is more popular with boy names.

    One of my dearest friends has a 5 month old named River Holden. Before he was born, I wasn't entirely into the name, but now that he's here, I can't imagine him having another name. He's very happy, vocal and lively. If you love the name, then go for it. Don't let others convience you out of it.

    Best of luck to you! =)
