Cain & Abel.
These are two of my favorite biblical names! I love them. I'm just curious as to what you berries think of them. Useable or not? I probably won't use them, as I already have Robert picked out for a boy and they wouldn't work as mns with our last name. Robert Abel Hitt? I don't think so. Robert Cain Hitt? Nope!Crushes: Casper & Isobel.

Yes. Robert Cain Hit sounds/looks like "Robert Can Hit." Not sure if you want that as a phrase to be used for your kid. Unless it implies something positive, like your Robert can hit a mean baseball and such.
Robert Abel Hitt? Not feeling that one either.
Although these are your favorites, were there others you are considering? And are you looking for a particular type of name? Perhaps we can help, if you'd give us a little more info

Magnus has been my favorite for quite awhile now, but i'm still not really sure if I can see it on my child. :/ Like I said, I'd probably never use Abel or Cain, but I still can't help how in love with them I am! There's really no trend in the boy's names that I like. I just know when I see one and fall in love with it! I hate not having a style lol would you ever use Cain or Abel? I hope someone does if I can't! LolCrushes: Casper & Isobel.

I really like the name Cain. I'll probably save it for a dog though.Top 10:
Girls - Annika, Claire, Ellora, Hannah, Jadis, Luella, Penelope, Samara, Saoirse and Siobhan.
Boys - Atticus, Caspian, Cassander, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Leander, Malachi, Perseus, Silas and Sora.
But it changes often.

Cain or Abel because of the story of Cain and Abel.
Nonetheless, Cain is a nice name (More often that not, I think of Michael Cain before I think of Cain and Abel, though. Hehe). Maybe as a middle and tribute to Michael Cain. ... Then again, I am not sure who likes the actor Michael Cain as much as I do, to think it was a good idea to use it as a middle - I have no idea!
Magnus sounds more like a pet name to me :/ May I suggest Maximus? What do you think?
And I know what you mean about knowing as soon as you see it. That's the way I was when I found my favorite girl name.Regards, Amelie Holst

Anyhow, I do hope you spot your next "Cain and/or Abel"-esque name(s)! I know I find more difficulty in the search for a boy's name than a girl's name.
Hmm... You like the name Robert? I'd guess I can just throw out some names for you to consider:
Robert Amael Hitt
Robert Iain Hitt (It's pronounced the same way as "Ian" but with similar spelling as "Cain")
Robert Alec Hitt (I just met someone with this name recently)
Robert Gideon Hitt("Deon")
Robert Caius Hitt(You can call him, "Cai" like "Kai")
Robert Icarus Hitt(Ick-ah-russ; sure, you have the "ick" sound in it... but it's rhythmically-enjoyable to the ears. Also, you can call him "Russ")
Robert Tobias ("Toby")
It's getting late but I wanted to throw some ideas out there before I took my leave.
Hope these spark some ideas of what you may/may not like.Regards, Amelie Holst
