    Cool Suggestions for the name-weary

    My eyes are beginning glazing over at the sight of name lists. I have 2 months to go til due date. Of course, we want something uncommon but not too out there. Naturally, DH is less open to my more unusual choices. So far we like :

    Abraham – would probably use nn Abe
    Elijah – DH loves, but it’s just way too popular
    Zephyr I love this name, but DH thinks it’s too out there
    Lawrence – I think this is classic and elegant but DH still not sure

    Can you suggest "softish"-sounding boys names? Our surname has a lot of hard consonants.

    I have a little boy named Zephan, a short form of Zephaniah. I don't mind sharing if you like it!

    Milo
    Elliott
    Cael
    Gabriel

    Callum (feels soft to me)

    Mordecai (kinda out there, but I think it's awesome)

    Abraham – Very presidential, but not bad
    Elijah – I like Elijah, especially with NN Eli
    Zephyr – Its a little out there for my tastes, maybe Zachary/Zechariah
    Lawrence – I like it, but not the NN Larry

    Good Luck
