    Desperate for some help

    I am now pushing 27 weeks with a boy (our first!). We already have two girls named Sabrina and Miranda. Both names came to me from movies that were constantly replaying during my pregnancy that at first I wasn't crazy about but soon grew to love. I loved how feminine they were, not too popular but not unheard of either and our families are all about nicknames. Sabrina is Sab, Brina or Bree and Miranda is Mira, Mimi, Randa, or Randy.

    Boy names have always been tough for us (which is part of the reason we always find out the sex). Names I liked when I was pregnant with Sabrina (who just turned 5) are no longer appealing.

    Names I like right now are

    Emmett- my front runner (because it keeps coming to me in various ways and at first I didn't like it)
    Oliver
    Sebastian
    Simon
    Jason

    Our last name sounds like Rolls so a lot of names I do like sound terrible with our last name.

    The names hubby likes are Damian and Bodhi. Damian is ok but I don't love it enough to not care about the stigma it carries nevermind the fact that is sounds a bit feminine to me for some reason. Bodhi, I flat out hate.

    The only names we are both ok with is Erik and Alek. But I am not in love with Alek and Erik is my cousin's name. I really want him to have his "own" name within our family and friend circle which leaves out a lot

    David
    Matthew
    Mark
    John/Jack
    Aaron
    Nicholas
    Ian
    Evan
    Logan
    Justin
    Joseph
    Jacob
    Nathan
    Colin
    Adam
    Sean
    James
    Kevin
    Dominic

    Any suggestions? I would like something that invokes a gentle strength, something that works for all stage of life, not too popular but not unheard of either. Nickname is not mandatory because I am sure someone will come up with something for the little guy whether we like it or not.

    Re: Desperate for some help

    I love Sebastian and Oliver with your daughters names Sabrina and Miranda.

    I also like Alec a lot but it might be too short with your short last name and your girls longer names. A couple more suggestions:

    Everett (this is also at the top of my list and since you liked Emmett I thought you might like it)
    Edward
    Lachlan
    Christian
    Benjamin
    Callum
    Mitchell
    Roderick
    Bradley
    Barrett
    Wade
    Wesley
    Dalton
    Warren
    Carson
    Cormac
    Ethan
    Theodore
    Wallace
    Winston
    Lawrence/Laurence
    Clark
    Harrison
    Patrick
    Russell
    Spencer
    Garrett
    Proud mama to Lucia Marie (3) and Halle Regina born July 12th!

    Emmett-I think of an old man, sorry
    Oliver-my fave! I think this goes great with Sabrina and Miranda (Rina, Mira and Ollie--love it!!)
    Sebastian-I've always liked this name.
    Simon-2nd favorite from your list. So classic. I don't think this name will ever go out of style.
    Jason-Always think of the horror movie

    Good luck!

    Re: Desperate for some help

    Sabrina and Miranda are lovely names, and I'm sure you'll find one just as lovely for your little boy. :-)

    Emmett- I do like Emmett a lot, but am wondering if it should be used as a middle name. With two sisters, I'd hate to hear Emmett called "Em," and people mistake him for a girl.

    Oliver: I LOVE Oliver!

    Sebastian: I love Sebastian, too, but think it's too close to Sabrina, especially if you call her Sab. Perhaps use it as a middle name?

    Simon: I LOVE Simon, but wonder about using another S name.

    Jason: Definitely too trendy/dated...


    Damian: Reminds me of the Omen, and an evil child.
    Bodhi: You flat-out hate it, so it's a no-no! It's not my style, either!

    Erik: I'm not a fan of Eric, but prefer it Eric.
    Alek: I prefer Alexander, with Alec (spelled this way) as a nickname.

    David: Love David....

    Matthew: A lovely name...

    Mark: Not a fan..

    John/Jack: Lovely...

    Aaron: Not a fan, especially for a boy with two sisters.

    Nicholas: LOVE Nicholas!

    Ian: Not a fan...

    Evan: Not a fan...

    Logan: Too trendy, especially with Miranda and Sabrina.

    Justin: Doesn't compare to so many of your other names...

    Joseph: LOVE Joseph!

    Jacob: A great name, but very popular.

    Nathan: LOVE

    Colin: LOVE!

    Adam: I prefer other names on your list...

    Sean: See above...

    James: Great!

    Kevin: Nah...

    Dominic: Awesome!

    Of your choices, I'm voting for Oliver, Dominic, Nicholas, Colin, or Jospeh for Miranda and Sabrina's brother.

    Other ideas:
    Augustin
    August (nn Gus)
    Alexander
    Benjamin
    Beckett (instead of Logan)
    Charles
    Dashiell (dash-ill)
    Dexter
    Edward (Teddy or Ned)
    Everett
    Elias (nn Eli)
    Henry
    Harrison
    Jasper
    Leo
    Liam
    Lucas
    Nathaniel
    Peter
    Roman
    Theodore (Teddy or Theo)
    William
    Xavier
    Finnian (nn Finn)
    Finnegan
    Patrick
    Declan

    Best wishes to you!
