    Picky Husband

    My husband turns down every name I suggest. Names I LOVE that he has turned down completely are: Camden, Callum, Dylan, Waylon, Wyatt, Blake. Plus many, many more I cant think of right now. Name can't start with J. Middle name will be Dean. Names he's suggested that I don't reaaallly like: Erik, Alexander, John, Gauge, Remington. The only name we agree on right now is Luke. But he doesn't like Lucas and I think Luke Dean sounds weird. Help!

    What about Luca Dean?

    His taste seems to lean more classic while yours seems a little more modern in comparison... Here are some suggestions for a middle ground:

    Emmett
    Donovan
    Alan
    Garrett
    Asher
    Casper
    Dorian
    Wesley
    Adrian
    Vincent
    August
    Miles
    Tristan
    Desmond

    I hope some of these help!
    Auberon Felix Cole | August Thorin Lake | Avery Corin Zephyr | Caspian Elliott Rome | Desmond Asher Frey
    Dexter Jonas Graham | Dorian Emery Vale | Emmett Orlando Blaise | Finnick Ambrose Dean | Griffin Casper Jude
    Jensen Noble Heath | Joshua Garland Hugo | Ramsay Everest Blaine | Roland Everett Sage | Wesley Darren Fox

    As the previous poster said, Luca or Luka would go well with Dean and then nn Luke would work. Some suggestions that you both might like:

    Elliott Dean
    Emmett Dean
    Ryder Dean
    Tyler Dean
    Maxwell Dean
    Maxley Dean
    Arlo Dean
    Alex Dean
    Crew Dean
    Tristan Dean
    Reconsidering...
    Theo - Jace - Brecken - Fritz - Leo - Archer - Elliott - Rowan
    Olive - Sunny - Tessa - Zoe - Ada - Isla - Faith - Callie - Skye

    Maybe you make a list, and he makes a list, and you cross names off of each other's lists? I agree with what's been said before, it sounds like your naming styles are totally different.
    Considering:

    Charlotte Isabella | Evelyn Rose | Esther Charlotte | Esther Rose | Evelyn Charlotte

    Benjamin Joseph | Daniel Joseph | Daniel Thomas | Joshua Thomas

    You seem to like softer, modern boy names whereas he seems to like more traditional masculine names, so it needs to balance between that!

    Luke Dean sounds fine to me, but if you're looking for other options

    Ezra Dean
    Henry Dean
    Christopher Dean 'Kit'
    Ethan Dean
    Felix Dean
    Bennett Dean
    Isaac Dean
    Edwin Dean
    Samuel Dean
    Everett Dean
    Spencer Dean
    Elijah Dean
    Zachary Dean
    Logan Dean
    Frederick Dean 'Freddie '
    Leo Dean
    Casper Dean
    Miles Dean

    What about Lucan? While I do find Luke Dean a tad clunky, if it's the only thing you can agree on, then I think it's worth sacrificing the flow factor.

    Could Dean be the first name?

    Gonna try to comb your styles:
    Axel
    Beau
    Cameron
    Dashiell
    Evander
    Gabe
    Ian
    Kellen
    Magnus
    Quentin
    Sawyer
    Vaughn
    Zeke

    Luke Dean is a bit clunky but I kind of like the snappiness of it! To me, the flow of this pairing isn't a deal breaker. I think you definitely should consider it since it is the only name you seem to agree upon at the moment.

    Other suggestions:
    Carter
    Sawyer
    Levi
    Evan
    William/Liam
    Rory
    Rowan/Ronan/Roman
    Harrison
    Julian
    Everett
    Owen
    Bennett

    If Luke goes well when said with your surname, but you're worried about middle name flow, would you consider a second middle name?

    Luke Dean Blahblah Surname might help you feel more confident about the flow of the name. Adding a two syllable second middle is a great idea IMO. And then you get to pick another favorite or get creative and that's never a bad thing!

    There have been some great suggestions from previous posters or you could maybe convince him to use one of YOUR favorite names if its going in the second middle spot.
