    Stumped by Names

    Looking for a trong boy name that has a "ck" sound in the name and doesn't end in "-son". My husband really loves Brooks, but I am having a hard time saying out loud "those are Brooks' toys"--would you say this-- Brooks' toys or this-- Brooks's (emphasizing the "s" for possession) Am I thinking about this too much? It makes me want to axe the name altogether.

    I mentioned the name Merrick tonight to my husband and he wasn't too keen. We had one boy name for my son so it was easy to choose. Not so easy this time around. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. :)

    I think that Brooks is great, but if the s ending bothers you, I think it's something important to consider.

    K sounds:

    Atticus (s ending, though)
    Alaric
    Breckin
    Broderick
    Baxter
    Calvin
    Conrad
    Cashel
    Cormac
    Declan
    Dexter
    Felix (s sound at the end, though)
    Frederick
    Franklin
    Isaac
    Jack
    Kellan
    Luke
    Lachlan
    Maxfield
    Maxwell
    Macaulay
    Nicholas (s, though)
    Patrick
    Paxton
    Quinlan
    Victor
    Walker


    I love the Beckett suggestion!

    Good luck! :-)
