    boys name ideas...

    Hi everyone! I'm 32 weeks along and looking for a baby boys name. This is our first child so I'm not quite sure which way I want to go sound-wise (unisex, surname, trendy, classic, etc.), so I have a bit of everything...

    Micah
    Dean
    Andrew nn Drew
    Tucker nn Tuck
    Preston
    Colton nn Colt
    Beckett nn Beck
    Slater
    Malachi nn Kai
    Joseph nn Joe

    Any ideas? I know I'm kind of all over the place, but I'd love to get some thoughts/suggestions... thanks so much!

    Micah - cute!
    Dean - seems a bit dated to me. Would make a handsome middle name.
    Andrew nn Drew - I just love this even though it's been so popular. I'd use it myself!
    Tucker nn Tuck - Tuck rhymes with a very unpleasant word. So does Tucker. Middle school would probably be a nightmare, I fear.
    Preston - this isn't my style, but it is really cute.
    Colton nn Colt - Makes me think of a revolver.
    Beckett nn Beck - I like this. Not my style, again, but very, very handsome.
    Slater - Mmm...this just doesn't sound good to me.
    Malachi nn Kai - I never heard of Kai as a nickname for Malachi. Very creative! Cool!
    Joseph nn Joe - a fabulous choice.

    Hello!


    Micah LOVE MICAH... I would use it but my hubby's cousin just did.
    Dean Love Dean also... also makes a great middle. exL Micah Dean
    Andrew nn Drew Drew is great, still like Micah Dean better :)
    Tucker nn Tuck I like your others better because they are a little more classic and will age well
    Preston Very preppy and cute
    Colton nn Colt Really like this too... maybe Cole as a nn alternative?
    Beckett nn Beck I like Colt better
    Slater hmmm... hate to be a bummer but A.C. Slater was in my head in one millisecond
    Malachi nn Kai Might be confusing and hard to spell but is definitely cute
    Joseph nn Joe Like your other choices better... I think they have more personality


    My top two on your list:
    Micah Dean I just think this is a FABULOUS combo
    Colton nn Colt Strong yet interesting and not over done


    just MHO!
