Her husband is wild about Harry in the middle spot, but they’re struggling to agree on a first name if baby number three is a boy.
We are expecting baby number three and are stuck for a name if the baby is a boy.
I am trying to find something that matches with these and I like slightly unique names.
My husband would like the baby if a boy to have the middle name Harry so something that goes with that too would be great!

Many of today’s most fashionable boys’ names carry a gender identity that’s decidedly masculine but not conventionally so, softer than macho but stronger than unisex. These boys’ names fall right in the middle on the gender scale, in contrast to their stylish female counterparts, which tend to be ultra-feminine (Arabella, Ophelia) or frankly boyish (Hayden, Frankie).
Many of these hot new boys’ names carry sounds that are soft and/or traditionally connected to girls’ names, such as vowel endings, and so depart from the classic male names once dominant. These stylish boys’ names with a fresh gender identity include:
Nothing quite says summer like a hotdog at the ballpark. But next time you’re in the bleachers, America’s pastime might also give you some naming inspiration. So, grab some peanuts and Cracker Jacks and see if any of these names, taken from baseball greats past and present, hit any home runs for you.
They’d like to stick with another C or K name for their baby on the way. The only problem? None of their favorites feel like The One.
My husband and I are expecting our second, and much wished for rainbow baby, in September. It’s a boy! We have a 5-year old daughter named Corina Rose. My name is Calla Rose and my husband’s name is Kaelin.
We would really like to find a name that begins with the letter C or K, but find ourselves only liking names that do not.

Last week’s baby name news was brought to us by the letter B.
At first glance, Billy and Bear don’t have much in common. One belongs with bold word names, the kind of choice guaranteed to make headlines. The other is delightfully retro, rare on birth certificates circa 2017, but instantly familiar to all.
What unites them? The letter B.
As of 2015, B ranked eighth for first letters of boys’ names, behind J, A, C, M, L, E, and D, but ahead of K and R.
Now there’s a new generation of B boy names coming. Here’s a dozen of the best.
