Matthew? Murray? M name -help!!!
Hello Nameberries! I posted a couple of months ago -- expecting baby #2 in mid-May (brother to Sally Rose) -- we are going with an "M" name in memory of my mom, Marilyn. When I posted back in December, I was stuck between Max and Matthew.. you were all so helpful! I was rooting for Max (or Mack/Mac), but my husband is not on board... for a while we were going to go with Matthew, but I'm still not feeling 100%. The problem is, I do like Matthew: it's strong, classic, sensible -but so very ordinary.... should we go for it anyway? I don't want to choose an inferior name just because it's NOT Matthew. Right now we like Murray... in fact, it grows on me more and more everyday. I like it because it's sweet and not very popular, but I'm also wondering if Matthew is a better name in the long-run (even though it's ordinary).... thoughts? suggestions? What are some of your favorite M names??

Hmmm... well. I'm not big on surname names, and Murray seems to remind me of Meg Murry from "A Wrinkle in Time." I'm sorry I prefer Matthew. However, if you are worried about ordinariness, what about Matthias or Matteo? I love those names. Other M names I adore...
Malcolm *you could use nn Mac *
Good luck! I hope I helped.

Matthew has never been a favourite name of mine and I'm not sure why. There's nothing wrong with this Biblical classic but I find it overused and ordinary. Sorry but I don't really care for Murray. Sally Rose has a vintage feel so here are some other suggestions for "M" names.
