    22 weeks and we cannot decide on a name! Help!

    I thought I would get some input on this. I found this website in a magazine and checked it out. I searched the "hot Lists" and nothing. We have been searching other sites almost every day and cannot agree. :( Any input/suggestions would be appreciated!

    My son, fiance and myself ALL have to agree on the name and it has yet to happen! :(

    *I would like to use James as a middle name as it's my dad's name.

    I like:
    Drake - he hates
    Lane - neither likes
    Landon - neither likes
    Dawson James - Really like, my son only likes Dawson and he isn't sold on it.
    Jackson - Like it but we already have a Jack in the family
    Dayton - Noone likes
    Aiden - we like, my son doesn't like.
    Addison - Neither likes
    Reece - Son doesn't like

    He likes:
    Jaiden - We have a friend that has a Jaiden and I am not crazy about it. My son likes it.
    Jesse James - NO WAY! Plus his last name starts with Bess!
    Lance - Yuck - No offense
    Trent - Sounds back woodsy to me!
    Trey - It's "okay" at best!
    Presley - Huge Elvis fan
    Van - Big Van Halen fan! UGH!

    My son likes: (my son will be 9 next month)
    Jackson - He wants to call him Jax.
    Jaylen - I don't like
    Acen - ??

    We all "kind" of like but aren't sold on these:
    Remington - Not sure about this one
    Marley - Cute for baby not sure for adult

    His last name starts with a B so I would like to stay away from a B name.

    Phew! Sounds like you're getting stressed about finding a great name! But no worries, everyone here loves names & will come along soon with some great ideas. And I'm sure you'll find something perfect. Oh and I love the name James for the middle!

    Drake - Hmm Do they like Dane, Dalton or Drew? They kind of have the same sound.
    Lane - I think this is us kind of girly sounding. . . Do you like Lucas, Liam, Landon or Lincoln? Lincoln James is great I think!
    Landon - Oh rats guess that means Landon is out
    Dawson James - I really like this! What do the guys think about Donovan - it kind of has a similar sound - and Donovan James is very handome!
    Aiden - This name (along with all the similar sounding Bradens, Cadens and Jaydens) is getting super popular and really isn't my style . . . What about Corbin?
    Addison - This is being used a lot for girls :(
    Ashton - Does Asher or Archer go over any better?
    Reece - What about Rhett, Ronan or Rowan?

    Jaiden - I don't care for this either. . .
    Jesse James - Oh man. Jess Bess----. There has been a nameberry blog the past 2 days about western names. Maybe something will strike him from those lists.
    Lance - Hmm what about Marc or March?
    Trent & Trey - Ohh!! How about Tate? It has same sound as these 2 plus the kind of country sound that he seems to like. And Tate Jmes is so great!
    Hunter - My husband likes this one too. Must be a guy thing. Some other names that he likes that are along that vein are Colt, Harley, Tucker, Miller and Archer.

    Jaylen - Kind of feminine sounding
    Acen - ??

    We all "kind" of like but aren't sold on these:
    Colin, Conner & Cole - Very handsome. Have you thought about Carter or Carson?
    Remington - I know someone who has a dog named this so I can't get over that . . . Remy is a cute nickname though
    Marley - This is being used for girls mostly
    Owen - Owen James is so handsome!
    Evan - Cute

    Lets see it is hard to choose but my faves are Dalton James, Dawson James, Tate James, and Owen James

    One idea for you: On the nameberry Supersearch, you can plug in just the qualities you want to look for -- boys' names with two syllables that end in "on" for instance -- here's a link to that search, which gets you more than 800 ideas.

    You can also do the same thing for 3 syllables, or try an 'er" ending instead, plus filter for popularity. You might come up with some ideas you haven't considered yet and arrive at something that everyone will love. Your 9 year old might have a lot of fun with it!

    Of the names you listed, I love Owen James and Evan James. What about...

    Parker James
    Chandler James (disclaimer: I have seen this as on both girls and boys and don't know how you feel about unisex names. It seems more masculine to me, but probably because the first one I knew was a boy.)
    Porter James
    Hudson James
    William James nn Will
    Braden James
    Kyle James
    Colby James
    Liam James
    Holden James

    Just some thoughts. Good luck and let us know what you decide!
