    Looking to expand our list

    Hi Berries. We are officially ttc baby #2! I am loving looking and talking about names with my husband. We have a boy named Kellen Arthur. Here is our small list of names we both kind of like. What do you think? Do they "go with" Kellen? Do they have to? Can you help me think of more names to ask my husband about? (we want to stay away from -er endings (last name) and -n endings (too close to Kellen). Thanks so much!

    Dashiell - I really like this one!
    Malachi - husbands #1
    Harold -husband thinks this might be "too old man-ish" but said he likes it.

    Kellen is very handsome. I think most names feel right together once they belong to a family, if that makes sense. My neighbors have a mix of different styles but they all seem to fit.

    I really like Dashiell and Desmond from your list. Other suggestions -

    Everett, Pierce, Bennett, Beckett, Dermot, Cormac, Teague, Bodhi, Brodie, Ramsay, Liam, Eamon, Brigham, Dempsey

    The eternal question! I think the answer is that that is up to you. In my family, none of the siblings' names "go together"... but it doesn't really matter, and I never noticed it. I've never had anyone comment on it, either. So it just depends on what you want.

    Dashiell - I think this one "fits" the best.
    Desmond- Doesn't "fit", but I love it as a name.
    Hershel- Hershey's... not my fav.
    Malachi - This one is nice. What about Malachy (Ma-la-kee), the Irish version? It might "fit" better with Kellen, if you care about that.
    Malcolm- Love, love, love Malcolm... I adore the nicknames Mac and Colm. I think it goes with Kellen, also.
    Harold -Doesn't fit with Kellen, imho. I do love it as a name, though... esp. the nn Hal.

    I think Dashiell, Desmond and Malcolm fit very well with Kellen.

    Hershel isn't my fave, but it's not bad. I kind of like the sound.
    Malachi - I agree that Malachy would be a much better fit (and I prefer it in general).
    Harold - I agree with your husband that this might be "too old man-ish".

    How about Harvey or Hendrik?

    P.s. Kellen Arthur is very handsome!
