I feel like I should apologize too just for all these replies. Another thing, YOU DO NOT ridicule someone's kid like people have done. I think Maeby is adorable and if others don't like it, keep it to yourself. She didn't want anybody's opinion on her daughter's name.

    I do agree that Burleigh Bear is too much and I get the same feel that you're describing a husky/fat bear. I like Burleigh and I like Bear, but not together. I also love Atticus from her list. Very handsome name. Atticus Bear would be awesome. (:

    Again, I apologize for everyone getting so rude. Most berries are very supportive and friendly. I hope this thread doesn't make you stray away from Name Berry completely. I hope you find your perfect name!!
    Before she edited her first post, the way she posted the thread sounded an awful lot like a troll.

    (Not defending anyone, just trying to explain why some of the comments might've come across the way they did.)

    For those that have suggested two Seamus Linden Bear etc. Is there a forum that discusses 2 middles. I have never done that for any of my other kiddos but since this is the last and we rarely agree on boy names or have a million final choices it might be necessary to have more than one middle. THANKS!
    @juliadoulia: I suggested to bettydogooder that she add a second middle to March River if she didn't want it to sound like she was describing a river, and personally I love both March and River. Since phonetically "Burleigh" is equal to "burly," it makes it difficult in use as a first name, because it always sounds like you are describing something; it might work better in the middle. Also, with "Burleigh" and "Bear," you do run the risk of sounding like you named a children's book character, and the alliteration with the two don't help.

    Since Bear is so short, I would suggest using at least a 3-syllable first. Atticus Bear ____ sounds great to me. Fox and Wolf are also great boys' names. Benno, which is one of my favorite names, means bear, and I think it'd sound great with Maeby.

    Benno Crosby
    Benno Shalom
    Atticus Bear
    Elliott Bear
    Seamus Benno
    Fox Burleigh
    Linden Wolf
    Atticus Fox

    I am always a fan of two middles though, if you decide to do that. I think a more traditional name can work wonders in making rarer combos a bit more grounded.

    Burleigh Nathaniel Fox
    Elliott Thomas Bear
    Crosby Matthew Bear
    Fox Jacob Burleigh

    etc, etc, it's endless!

    Good luck!
