Baby Names

Help naming DS#2

Our first DS is Alexander Grant Walker and he goes by Alex.  I like names that people will know how to spell when the hear it and know if it is a boy / girl when they see it.  I dont want a top ten name again (there are several Alex's in our moms group and it is confusing). 

We really like Davis for a middle name after my father (David) but are stuck coming up with a first name.  We have thrown around Lincoln for a while but I am not totally sold.  

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

  • With a DS with a middle name Grant, I would stay away from any more presidential names for subsequent children. I love using Davis as a middle name, and feel it's up to par with DS #1's middle name. Now for a first name.

    How about a name like Nathaniel or Asher? Or another Greek name like Theodore or Nicholas? Is Thomas too boring? How about Patrick? Hudson Davis came to mind, I think it makes a nice combination.

    I get what you're saying, but there are a lot of presidential names in your suggestions...

     OP- I really like your first son's name. I'm not crazy about the Lincoln, but if you like it, use it. Is there something about Lincoln Davis that you don't like? I think it flows ok, though nms.

    DH is Andrew Nicholas so those are out.  I like Thomas but had a long relationship with a Thomas before DH and have a difficult association with that name. I love Theodore but DH nixed that one because of the chipmunk Huh?

    Everyone (and I know their opinions really dont matter) keeps saying that we need another "presidential" or strong name for DS#2.

  • I put Davis, Lincoln, Walker, Grant and Alexander in Nymbler and this is what it spit out:

    Wilson              Mitchell                        Forrest

    Ross                Preston                         Vaughan

    Jack                Noah                              Benjamin

    William              Nelson                         Henry

    Oliver                  Bennett                        James

     

    I personally like Lincoln - but of the list above, I love Oliver Davis, Vaughan Davis and Benjamin Davis.

    Alex and Oliver - or Alex and Ben sound great!

    Bennett Davis....love Alex and Ben together.

    Also:

    Garrett Davis--oh, I like that one!

    Carson Davis--although I would stay away from the last name as a first name thing b/c of the middle name--I would want a more traditional boys name.

    I agree that a strong name to match DS #1 is best, however, Lincoln and Grant are both Civil War era... it's getting a bit too Civil War themed for me with that combo, especially with Davis (Jefferson Davis) thrown in there representing the South.

    What about a traditional, strong names like William, Graham, Edward, Charles, Richard, Paul, Benjamin (may be too popular), Joseph, Jonathan, Nicholas, Clark, Cole, Sebastian, Seth, Adam... (sorry if these seem random, I am literally just thinking of "commanding" men I know, ha!).

    I just figured surnames were more obviously "themey."  Although if it were DS2's first name, it would be less so.

    Pick a name you love. I know there's the perfect name out there. Smile

    Are you still taking suggestions? How about: Benjamin, Charles, George, Henry, James, Samuel? Lawrence? (I really like David Lawrence by the way) Bennett, Colin, Calvin? Clark, Cole, Jude, Joel, Owen? Sorry if any of those were already suggested..
