Why is this so hard?
My husband and I are thrilled to be having a boy in late winter, however we are having a difficult time finding a name. There are several things making it hard: 1. My husband is super picky 2. Our last name is tricky, it begins with "ST" 3. I am a teacher so I have a lot of name associations. Since our last name begins with "s" an "s" first name or even a name that ends with the "s" sound, like "Chase", is out. We would like a name that ends in a hard consonant.
So far we like John Robert (but would call him Jack) after my dad or William Robert. The problem with William is it is so popular (#5 on SS list) and my husband and I both like different nicknames. I think that it would be confusing for a child if the parents called him two different names. We want to use Robert or John as the middle name.
I love Jack, but it seems a little plain and also common. I guess we are looking for a strong male name that is not too common, but not too creative. My husband's pick is Gary.
Our daughter's name is Taylor. So Tyler and James have been ruled out.
I know this is a lot, any suggestions or feedback would be great. Thanks.

I actually really like John Robert here, even though it's not usually my taste. My grandfather, dad, and brother are all John Robert, actually! I would have loved if one of them went by Jack--I think it's so handsome, and my second choice for a boy at the moment.
I have always liked Josiah Robert, too. It was the first idea I had.
