    Cool A Brother for Cruz :) HELP!

    We are expecting our second baby boy in just a week!!!! Eek. Big brother is called Cruz. Big sister is Isabelle. I love short cool names for boys. Big bonus if they are unique while still being wearable. What do you think of the following?

    1. Rio
    2. Oscar
    3. Miles
    4. Vaughn

    Is Rio too “out there”? I’m liking that he’ll stand out a bit.

    Hello! While I don't think Rio is too out there, and think it's a cool name, just like Cruz, I always say each name aloud with the siblings. And instantly I said "Cruz and Rio...." oh like a cruise in Rio! I am not sure anyone's brain is making connections quite like that but I just had to share. I know I probably sound like the worst because I hate when people hate on names!!! I do like all of your choices individually but the only one I truly like with both siblings is Oscar. Like I said I'm sure I'm the only one to make that association so always choose a name YOU love. Are you open to any other suggestions?

    With Cruz, Miles seems like a bit of a theme. Rio is a great name, and I think it works well. The only Rio I know is a girl, but before I met her I thought Rio was a boys name. I also like Oscar.

    I would not use Miles, too themey. I feel Rio is the best fit, although not a perfect fit. It’s a bit more animated (for lack of a better word) than Cruz. But it’s more important you choose the name you truly love no matter if it matches Cruz or how others feel about the choice. Does one really stand out and you feel more attached to it? Does one have more of a life to it than just being a name?

    Hi there.

    I love the name Oscar, & I think that it fits really well w/Cruz & Isabelle. That being said, Rio is hard to pass up. It's not typically my style, but I think that Cruz & Rio are super cool for brothers. Sure, they kind of both have a water theme. But that's part of the charm. I don't think it's too out there. Miles seems a little boring next to Cruz (it's getting over done, too), & Vaughn just kind of sounds dated.

    Hope this helps.
