Boy Name Poll

500 Love Its 100 Comments First Answer Name Dropper
edited September 2015 in Baby Names
We came up with some options I like last night. Just thought I'd do a simple poll for opinions. I know all of them are pretty popular but we just can't seem to like anything that isn't so at this point I'm not fighting that battle. My husband isn't concerned about popularity at all- I am a little. James and Lawrence are family names. Eli is on our list but we haven't cons up with any middle names that hubby likes with it.

  • I love the name Henry, it's dignified.  But then you can shorten it to Hank and he's a guy you can grab a beer with.  
  • I voted James Francis, but I think Henry Francis is super handsome and dignified sounding.

  • Thanks! We are strongly leaning towards Henry Lawrence. I love Henry and both our other kids have middle names from my side of the family so it seems like we ought to do one from DH's side and that would be Lawrence. James is from my side.
  • I really like James but both middle names have the "s" sound ending like James does and it doesn't sound right to me.

    Maybe James Eli?
  • I'm really fond of the name Francis so I say work that in. Agree with PP that Henry Francis is great.
