    We need suggestions for our first! :)

    Hello berries! I'm 25 weeks preggo with our first little bundle of joy. Hubby has decided that we will both choose 3 names for each gender and then discuss from there. I'd like your help in finding 3 spectacular names.

    Our last name sounds like March, but starts with a B. And middle name for a boy will be August (family name).

    Do you have any suggestions or opinions? I'd like to steer clear of top 100 names...

    Here's my current list:
    Rory (wondering if this needs a full name or can stand on its own)
    Felix (hubby is not a fan)

    Thank you!

    So, it sounds like your surname is 1 syllable. Although Graham is my fav, I think it would be too choppy when paired with a 1 syllable surname... especially since most people just call you by your 1st name and surname (with no mn). I also cannot get on board with Felix. Rowan seems to be going to the girls (correct me if I'm wrong). If that doesn't bother you, then go for it. I've also known a few girls named Rory. Milo reminds me of "The Adventures of Milo and Otis"... I can't get past that. The issue with Jonah is that it will slur to become Jonaugust, and Jonas August doesn't go well. Would you consider Jude, Judah, Josiah, etc?

    I like Graham, Milo and Rowan best from your list. They all sound amazing with middle name August (which I love!).
    Felix is great too, but if your husband doesn't like it, then you're sort of wasting one of your three choices!

    Girls - Jane - Eleanor - Matilda - Caroline - Rosalind - Beatrix
    Boys - Arthur - Desmond - Edmund - Edwin - Frederick

    My fears for Rowan and Graham are the same as what you have pointed out...darn. I think that Graham, Rory, and Milo are my favorites. Hubby also isn't sure if he can get past Milo and Otis... makes me sad.

    I love Maxwell, but my parents' dog is Max...kinda puts the kibosh on that one.

    I'm also liking:
    Everett ( though I'm not sure I see it on my baby. ..if you know what I mean)
