    Thoughts on these boy names and suggestions for others?

    DH and I are expecting our 3rd child this fall and are not finding out what we're having. We live in the south where uncommon names are common - lots of last names for first names, double names, etc. And family names reign supreme - we used our favorite family name for our son and have a few that may have potential but I am not sold on them. Anyway, I would love some feedback and suggestions for boy names. I want to avoid names that are super common - James, John, etc. I like the idea of finding a last name that is masculine. I also am trying to avoid names that end in an "en" sound since our last name is 2 syllables and ends with "en." Here are a few names I have on my list but I am not dead set on any of them:

    Family names:
    1. Kincaid
    2. Butler
    3. Nicholas - this was my grandfather's name but I can't get over the thought of people calling him Nick or Nicky. I like Nicholas, though.
    4. Garland - might be too feminine for DH
    5. Randle but call him Ran
    6. Joshua - a very close friend who passed away too young

    Others on the list
    1. Braddock - my dad is Bradley which we used for my son's middle name, but everybody calls my dad Brad which would be this nickname, too
    2. Barrick
    3. Huxley
    4. Garner
    5. Thatcher
    6. Ralston

    Please help! I am very open to suggestions! I do not want to still be trying to decide on a name when it is time to be discharged from the hospital!
