    Breccan, Colton, Dax, and ________?

    I have three sons, Breccan nn Brec, Colton nn Colt, and Dax. I'm pregnant with my fourth (we don't know if it's a boy or girl) and my husband and I are struggling to agree on a name. We both like the name Shepherd, but there is an actor named Dax Shepherd and I'm worried that I'm going to get the "oh... you must be one of those crazy fans" looks. What do you think? Any other boys names suggestions? I like names that have a sort of "hard" sound - I also really like Irish names for boys (probably b/c most have that sound).

    For girls we kind of like Aveline, but we'd love to get some other suggestions!
    For both boys and girls names, we'd like to stay away from "too popular" names.
    Thanks so much!

    I adore the name Shepherd (and the nn Shep is very cool) so if you really love it, I wouldn't worry about the connection the the actor. But here are a few others you may like.

    August or Angus (nn Gus)
    Beau
    Cormac (nn Mac)
    Callahan (nn Cal)
    Finnegan (nn Finn)
    Fritz
    Quinlan (nn Quinn)
    Sullivan (nn Sully or Van)
    Teague (I think the "Tea" is pronounced "Ty", so nn could be Ty)
    Wyatt
    Zander (nn Zan)
    Zane

    Aislinn
    Briony/Bryony
    Celia
    Claire
    Cora
    Cordelia
    Darcy
    Eleanor (going to be popular, but a classic, and has lots of nn options)
    Eve
    Evelyn
    Finella
    Finola
    Lucinda (nn Lucy)
    Maeve
    Matilda (nn Tilda or Tilly)
    Nora

    My favorite combos:
    Brec, Colt, Dax, Gus
    Brec, Colt, Dax, Finn
    Brec, Colt, Dax, Zan
    Brec, Colt, Dax, Tilly
    Brec, Colt, Dax, Nora
    Brec, Colt, Dax, Lucy

    Reed, Zane, Quincy nn Quinn, Finnian nn Finn, and Wyatt get my vote for the boys. I love Zane the most! Maybe I love Wyatt the most.
    Girls: Maeve, Lucy, Lily, Willow, Ivy, Ruby, Olive, and Georgia. Maeve is my favorite!

    If I really loved Shepherd, I wouldn't let Dax Shepherd stop me from using it. As long as you won't be bothered by people's comments (and you know they WILL comment on the whole, "Wow! Like Dax Shepherd!" issue), go for it. If, however, it will annoy or upset you, perhaps you may be happier using it as a middle name.

    I really love Aveline, and think it's a great Irish choice!

    Fiona
    Bryn
    Maisie
    Ainsley
    Tierney
    Tatum
    Bronwyn
    Quinn
    Skye
    Avalon
    Delaney
    Tamsin

    Cullen
    Callum
    Archer
    Holden
    Hunter
    Miller
    Roman
    Quinn

    I think Zane sounds great with your other boys' names...

    Best wishes!
