    Overwhelmed...

    So, you guys said I should put my names out and you'd help me combine them... here goes!!!

    Most Important People to Honor:
    Robert
    Rowe
    Thompson (mom's maiden name... thought about using Thomas)
    William
    Taylor
    Nick
    Earl

    Others I would love to honor:
    Vonnoh*
    Frost*
    Drake*
    Max
    Otmar
    David
    John
    Montgomery
    Monroe
    Walter
    Grant
    Howland*
    Bosworth
    Dodge
    Beaumont (love Beau)
    Merlin
    Treat
    Orlando
    Anthony
    *those i'd most like to honor from the "less important people" section


    Some of his favorites:
    Dashiell nn Dash
    Lincoln nn Link (maybe use just Link, in the middle)
    Sullivan
    Cloud
    and pretty much anything else you can think of from Pixar, video games, or comics

    Some of my favorites:
    August nn Augie/Gus
    James
    Angus
    Wesley/Westley(Princess Bride was the first movie we watched together, and like the nn West)
    George
    Freddy
    Alfie
    Archie

    Others we like:
    Harvey
    Rokeby
    Theodore
    Felix
    Rufus
    Bruce (baby dances whenever he hears the boss!)
    Bruno
    Wyatt
    Dexter
    Maxfield
    Arlo
    Milo
    Dean

    Some combos I like:
    Dashiell August Nick
    Vonnoh James Orlando
    Bruce Maxfield

    New Development: my husband said we can use James as the first name if he can have Lincoln or Link in the middle... this is very appealing to me, James is an absolute favorite of mine, and Link is one of his. I'd kind of rather use Link than Lincoln, but not sure about that. Also, I'd want to have one of our really meaningful names with it, since neither of those actually mean anything to us, we just love them. Having a hard time coming up with a combo, though


    Sorry for such a long, complicated list! I'm due the 23rd, so we really need to figure this out! Poor kid isn't going to get named until he's a month old!

    Oh, also, the last name is Becker!

    James Lincoln Rowe Becker -sounds presidential.
    Thompson August Cloud Becker nn Tom
    Alfred Sullivan Taylor Becker nn Alfie
    Archie Becker sounds kind of like Archie Bunker. But maybe many people have forgotten about him.
    Archibald Earl Maxfield Becker nn Archie
    George Vonnoh Lincoln Becker -this sounds presidential, too.
    George Vonnoh Sullivan Becker. I really like Sullivan as a middle name. I will try it as a first:
    Sullivan August Drake Becker nn Sully. I really like this one!
    Sullivan August Nick Becker -very handsome.
    James Vonnoh Lincoln Becker -sounds important and handsome. I really love Lincoln in there!
    Beaumont August Sullivan Becker. Beau Becker. Sounds fine to me.
    Dashiell Frederick James Becker -love this!
    Dashiell Frederick Vonnoh Becker
    Wesley James Lincoln Becker
    Thomas Drake Montgomery Becker
    James August Theodore Becker
    James August Lincoln Becker -I really like James with August. Beautiful!

    Re: Overwhelmed...

    Thank you for your wonderful suggestions! I especially love:


    James Lincoln Rowe Becker -it DOES sound presidential! I love this!
    Thompson August Cloud Becker- Sounds fantastic, but I don't think I could handle Thompson as a first name
    Sullivan August Drake Becker nn Sully- same as above
    Sullivan August Nick Becker -ditto
    James Vonnoh Lincoln Becker - love this one!
    Dashiell Frederick James Becker - I love it! but I would only use Frederick in first, because the reason I like it is for the nn Freddy
    Dashiell Frederick Vonnoh Becker
    James August Lincoln Becker- LOVE this! just gorgeous



    August William Nick- love it, too simple for the husband though, which is the problem with all the William names, so even though I love them, I'm leaving them out :(
    August Dashiell Nick- August Dashiell is great together, love this
    August Dashiell Rowe- we BOTH absolutely love this!
    August Dashiell Frost- this is fantastic, i really love Frost
    August Lincoln James- LOVE! really, realllly love! we both love this, too


    I think we're pretty sure that the first name will be either James, Dashiell, or August. We're loving James Lincoln Rowe, James Robert Lincoln, James Howland Cloud, August Lincoln James, August Dashiell Rowe, Dashiell August Nick.... and the one I just thought of last night and is completely making my heart sing and I think I finally have that "this is it!" feeling, is James Cobalt Cloud. My mom always collected cobalt blue glass, and she always had it in our big bay window when I was a kid, and the light would shine through and look so beautiful... and so this name reminds me of that, and summer time and happiness and all good things. It makes me pretty giddy. What do you think?

    Re: Overwhelmed...

    James August Lincoln Becker-I really like this, too, Lyndsay.
    August Dashiell Nick- I love this one!
    August Dashiell Rowe- This one is probably my favorite, because the Dashiell Rowe combination sounds so sophisticated and unique.
    August Dashiell Frost- This one is fantastic, too!
    August Lincoln James- I love, love, love this one, too!

    Of the above, my favorites are August Dashiell Rowe (I'll pay you to use this one) and August Lincoln James (I'll pay you for this one, too, but not as much). For me, James is just too ordinary compared to August and Dashiell. (August and Dashiell, I love you!) That said, I'll go with any of the August or Dashiell combos, because I think they're heads above the rest.


    James Cobalt Cloud: This one does flow, but for me, it doesn't do anything. This, of course, means nothing, because he isn't my baby, and I'm not the one with the warm cobalt memories.

    For me, the other names are unique, regal, and sophiticated, while Cobalt Blue is unique but too earthy/nature-related. It has a Native American sound, and doesn't sound right with James. Something just seems "off," and the name sounds too feminine to me. (I don't know many men who would like to have an ethereal middle name like Cobalt Cloud.) I could see using Cobalt or Cloud, but not both of them at once. Dashiell Cobalt James is nice.

    That said, if it makes you feel giddy, go for it! I'm going to come up with some more August and Dashiell combos later.... :-)

    Re: Overwhelmed...

    What do you guys think of Dashiell David Rowe? David is his dad, and his brother's middle. Rowe is my Grandpa, Uncle, and brother's middle. And Dash is *probably* our favorite first name.

    Dashiell David Rowe Becker. That sounds wonderful! If he ever has a little brother, you can name him August.
