We're having a boy. Our daughter's name is Margaret and goes by Margo.
Here's our list so far:
Asher Evan RowanSebastianElliottThomas
The only ones that I think 'go' with Margaret/Margo are Sebastian and Thomas. Those are all classic names to me while Asher, Evan, Rowan, and Elliott all fall into a 'modern' category for me. Not trendy or popular per se, just not the same style as Margaret/Margo.
That's so interesting you say that- Asher is a Biblical name and is very old! It does sound more modern though when you really think about it.
Thanks for the input ladies!
Sebastian is my favorite!
All of the names are nice though. Can't go wrong here.
Oooo, they're all good! I seriously like them all... but if I had to rate them, from best to worst (not that there is a worst):
LeapOfFaith10:That's so interesting you say that- Asher is a Biblical name and is very old! It does sound more modern though when you really think about it. Thanks for the input ladies!
I know it's Biblical but, to me at least, Asher doesn't fit in that category with Elijah, Matthew, Abraham, Ezekiel, Soloman, etc.
The more I think about it the more I'm not sure how I would 'categorize' it. It's not trendy, popular, super Biblical, or classic. It sounds weird but when I hear Asher I hear 2010-present baby.
LOVE Rowan. It is in our Top 3 if this baby is a boy.
I also like Elliott and Sebastian. I think Thomas would also make a good sibset for Margaret/Margo.

Everyone's response mentions the name going good with Margo! They all are fine with it and I think it's silly to base your child's name on the siblings!
I like Asher, Rowan, and Evan..I dislike Elliot (reminds me of E.T. Or just a dorky name) Sebastian and Thomas have icky nns..Sebby and Tommy,
fitzpemberley:I like Thomas and Sebastian the best, but you have a nice list in general.
This. I like Asher, but it seems to be gaining in popularity.
