    What do you think?? POLL

    I'm 16 weeks pregnant with our 3rd, gender unknown. We really like the name Ethan for a boy, but I keep hearing people saying it's really dated and way overdone. I personally only know of ONE Ethan, so to me it's a unique (but not too exotic) strong name. What do you think?

    The siblings are Blake & Nicholas, but it doesn't have to "match" exactly... We're thinking of Porter or Parker for a middle name...

    I posted before about Ethan saying why I didn't like it but I think that I am in the minority.

    If you like short names here is one that isn't heard of often, Kobe, like Kobe Bryant.

    Like Chloe, I don't think Ethan is dated exactly, but it is VERY popular -- #3 in U.S. last year! It may be bordering on dated given its been popular for a few years now, but if you still really love it and don't mind its popularity, go for it!

    Ethan seems more dated to me than your other choice, Chloe (which really isn't dated). I also think Ethan is a very childish name, and I don't like picturing it on grown men. It doesn't have the same rugged handsome feel of Blake and Nicholas. I know a three-year-old named Ethan, and I didn't like the name when he was given it, either. I also know of older actors named Ethan, but it still doesn't work for me. Sorry!
