    HELP...boys names to go with last name CASTRO

    My husband and I don't agree very well when it comes to names. Baby due in 9 weeks....
    My list:

    Jax
    Leo
    Nico
    Matteo
    Dominic

    However am worried about first and last names both ending in "O".
    Suggestions????

    Re: HELP...boys names to go with last name CASTRO

    Jax: It feels very trendy to me, and I can't imagine a grown man named Jax. (I can see it as a nickname for Jackson, though.) However, because Jackson/Jax and Castro have the same short A sound, it really stands out to me when I say the name out loud.

    Modern names you may like:

    Anderson
    Archer
    Bennett
    Donovan
    Everett
    Graham (slightly different vowel sound, so I can see it with Castro)
    Grant (ditto)
    Griffin
    Harrison (then again, it sounds like a US president paired with the Cuban Castro)
    Hudson
    Jude
    Miller
    Pierce (although this sounds like someone trying to "pierce" Castro to me)
    Reed
    Sawyer
    Sullivan


    Leo: I love this name so much, but I'd personally stay away from first names ending in O.

    Names like Leo:

    Arthur
    Benjamin
    Charles
    Edward
    Elliot
    Gabriel
    George
    Henry
    James
    Lionel
    Nathaniel
    Oliver
    Peter
    Samuel
    Simon
    Thedore (NN Teddy, not Theo)
    Victor
    Vincent
    William

    Nico: It's the O issue for me...

    Nicholas
    Alexander (nn Xander, which could give you an X like in Jax)
    Darius
    Elias (the S names are a bit S heavy with Castro to me, though)
    Matteo: Ditto, but I love this name!
    Orion

    Matteo: The O issue... :-(

    Matthias
    Dante
    Rafaele

    Dominic: I think it's a great name, but because it ends in a hard C and Castro begins with one, I don't think it flows very well with your last name.

    Anthony
    Jude
    Victor
    Vincent

    Best wishes to you! :-)

    [quote="cpribo"]My husband and I don't agree very well when it comes to names. Baby due in 9 weeks....
    My list:

    Jax - I agree with Jill on this one.
    Leo - For me, first names that end in "o" don't go with Castro
    Nico - ditto
    Matteo - ditto
    Dominic - the "c" at the end runs into the "C" at the beginning of Castro.

    I'm so sorry that I don't like any of the names on your list with Castro. But at least now I see what kind of names you love. Here are some similar one that go well with Castro:

    Adrian Castro - love it
    Daniel Castro
    Elliott Castro
    Gabriel Castro nn Gabe
    Julian Castro nn Jules
    Miles Castro
    Rafael Castro nn Rafe
    Raymond or Ramon Castro nn Remy
    Simon Castro

    Re: HELP...boys names to go with last name CASTRO

    I haven't read other posters' responses, so I apologise if I repeat their suggestions or advice.

    Jax - the a sound for me repeats too much with the Ca in Castro.
    Leo, Nico, Matteo - I love all these names, but they really don't go with your surname
    Dominic - I like this one the best with Castro, although Dominic ends in a C and Castro begins with one. But from your list it gets my vote.

    Some more suggestions:
    Darius
    Donovan
    Leon
    Lucas
    Cruz
    Dante
    Bryn
    Vaughan
    Eli
    Levi

    Good luck!
