Thread: Brother for Simon???

Jordan but the only Gordon that I ever knew NEVER liked his name and went by Tom instead.
I think Charles would fit and a few more I like are
Jacob Cook (Jake)
Jasper Cook I think Jasper has the same feel as Simon and it is one of my favourites and makes a great combo with Cook
PS I nearly forgot - Alister and Simon would make great brothers too!

Rollo, thanks for checking back. I think Jonathan, Joshua, and Jacob are much too common for our taste. We happen to know like 10 of each. Jasper is awesome but is my cousin's dog's name and I just don't think I could get over that association. Hugh is off the table primarily because my hubs HATES Hugh Grant. I've been toying with Hugo, which I think would be super cute! But I'm having trouble imagining an adult Hugo. DH's response: "That would take a lot of convincing." I kind of love Alistair, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to go that super British! Also, Alistair Cooke is famous and I think that's a little much. Not that I'd mind if my son became the host of Masterpiece Theater.
Harrison nn Harry is kind of cute! I'll have to mull that one over.
I do kind of like Felix, and I get why people keep bringing it up. It's a pretty great name. I do know a baby who was just born named Felix, and I feel like it's "taken" now even though I don't know the people very well. Is that silly? It would seem like I was snatching it! Also, my mom would be so obnoxious about Felix the Cat.
I like Logan, but we have a bad association and don't want to use it. I'm not a fan of Hunter, Trent, Kevin, Eric, Garrison (South Park!), Paedon, Davis, Tristan, River, Holden, or Daven. I like Seth but think it's too choppy with last name Cook. Vaughn is ok but I think too preppy.
I kind of like Duncan. But I think the "-can Cook" is too alliterative and sounds like the sentence "Dun can cook." (Ahhh the joy of having a last name that is a verb.)
Thanks so much everyone, and keep the suggestions coming!

Hi I am back again to see if I can find something that may go on your list.
Something that is classic and popular but one that I love and even if you don't want in the fn spot it makes a wonderful mn.
I am talking about Alexander.
Then there is
Christian (I like the alliteration of Christian Cook)
These probably fit into the too trendy/popular category
and here are a couple for the less popular
Damon (a bit matchy with Simon)
Calvin (its not for me)
and I suggested it before because it is a favourite of mine - Lachlan and I think the suggestion of Vaughn is awesome.

Simon is so handsome! I really like it. I know someone who had triplets earlier this year--they ended up all being girls, but if they had been boys, Simon Jeffrey was really high up on her list. I thought maybe you might like some of the other names she loved?
Charles (nn Charlie)
Frederick (nn Freddie)
Harrison (nn Harry)
I think that's most of them. Some have already been mentioned (I noticed you loved Oliver but your hubby didn't, and that you're not a fan of Holden), but I figured I would just list the ones I could remember. It seems like the two of you might have quite similar styles! Or semi-similar, anyway.
