    39 weeks pregnant- Please comment on our shortlist!

    Hello Berries,

    I am 39 weeks pregnant and expect to go into labour any second- have been having mild contractions for days and our son was a week early. Our 2 year-old son's name is Hank. His full name is actually James Henry, but we always intended to call him Hank and have never used his full name. So we'd like something complimentary for our second child's name, but not too matchy-matchy. We don't know the gender, so I'll be posting this in the Girl Names Forum as well. Here's our shortlist of boy names:

    Sidney Carlos (Sid)
    Sidney Carl (Sid)
    Sidney Shea (Sid)

    Abel Carlos
    Abel Carl
    Abel Shea

    Joseph Carlos (Joe)
    Joseph Carl (Joe)
    Joseph Shea (Joe)

    Sorry for the repetitiveness of the middles. All middles (well, Carlos and Shea) are family names so we'll definitely be using one of them. Can you please comment on first names and let me know which middle works best for flow? Our last name is Portuguese, four syllables, and starts with a soft A-sound.

    I like Sidney Shea best from the list. Hank and Sid would make great brothers. Joseph Shea would be my 2nd choice, although, I don't like Hank and Joe together nearly as much as I like Hank and Sid.

    I would avoid Abel only because Hank and Abel sound a little like Cain and Abel.

    I like Joe and Hank and Sid and Hank. I prefer Carl for middle name for both.
