    Help finding name like "Cal"

    Hi All,

    My husband and I have been having trouble agreeing on boys' names. The only one we like so far is Cal (Calvin Henry Cannon as the full name) but I'm worried that Cal Cannon sounds a bit too alliterative. Does anyone have any suggestions for names that seem similar to Cal but would work better with Cannon?

    Thank you!

    Similar to Cal that work with surname Cannon:

    (Similar style to Calvin Henry)

    Thought: His middle name could be Calvin if you don't want to let Clavin go. Also, Caleb might be a bit better than Calvin when paired with the surname.

    If his first name begins with Ca and his middle name begins with L, that could give him the nickname of Cal.

    Your style: Cyrus, Archer(ace), Evander (Van), Everett (Rhett), Geoffrey(Geo)

    Michael nn Cal
    Theodore nn Theo, Teddy, Todd, Thoren
    Deveraux nn Dex
    Malachi nn Kai, Mach

    Hi! Calvin Henry is very handsome, but Calvin Henry Cannon (Cal Cannon) reminds me of Colcannon, a traditional Irish dish.
    What about:
    Owen Henry
    Henry Owen
    Ian Henry
    Rufus Henry
    Elias Henry
    Titus Henry
    Tobin Henry
    Mommy to

    *Jethro Daniel "Jed"/"Jet"* *Harvey Blaise* *Jeremy Vincent "Jem"* *Laszlo Ozias "Lo"* *Leif (LAYf) Matthew "Lem"* *Chester William "Chet"*

    I think Cal Cannon is fine and actually a pretty strong and memorable name.
    A similar option is Henry Cannon, nicknamed Hal.

    Similar-sounding names:
    Valentine "Val"
    Salvador "Sal"
    Cyrus "Cy"

    names similar to Cal (short, strong, creative)
    Dash (Dashiel)
    Xan (Alexander)
    Beck (Beckett)
    Bran (Brendan)
    Jem (James, Jeremy)
    Huck (Hugh)
