    So we're expecting a boy

    Boys names are proving to be difficult to pin down some we both really love. There seem to be more criteria limiting choices for boys. First of all our last name begins with R so we shy away from names beginning or ending with that letter. Our last name is also one syllable so at least 2 syllables and it's a noun so word names can be problematic. My Hubby is the third so the fourth is on the table but he's open to other options as well but really wants to honor his father so middle names are somewhat limited to Jack, Jackson, Harold, Jack Harold. A vowel name would be a way to include my side if we chose to. Our daughter is Talaria Persephone but we'd like something a little less obscure for a boy but not top 100. Her name is meaningful for us but doesn't honor any family members. We like mythology, not just Greek. So far we are ok with the following...

    Horatio - one of the few we still like from first pregnancy.
    Otis - our toddler's pick as it's her favorite story.
    Phoenix - very meaningful imagery for Hubby probably his first choice at the moment.
    Emmett - reminds me of my late Grandpa but not quite it, perhaps something similar?

    Comments and suggestions please and thanks very much in advance.
