@lmyrmo I think Neil, Nico, or Nolan would go well with his siblings names. A friend of mine named her son Nicodemus but calls him exclusively Nico.
Baby #3 on the way due 8/19/17
My son is Grayson Jacob and my daughter is Tenley Ruth. Their middle names are from my side of the family. We are having another boy. I loved the name John Luke for a boy...those are my dad and brother's names. DH wasn't sold and he said he wanted to use a name from his side this time, specifically his grandfather. MH is 1/2 Hispanic, and his grandfather's name was Amalio Deanda Ramon. Had we been pregnant with a girl, we would have used Amelia as a middle name (feminine version of Amalio). We've decided to shorten Amalio to Leo, and use that as a middle name. Now we cant decide on a first name. Although I loved the name John Luke, I struggled with the fact that it was a more traditional name, and my other two kids have more modern names. Now I'm stuck on Daxton. We'd call him Dax for short. Daxton Leo Ramon...I like it. DH isn't sold yet. I also liked Rhett...DH says it sounds too much like "rat". Ronan was on the list, but I guess some character from something he watched had a "Ronan the Destroyer" and he says that is setting us up for a rowdy kid. LOL! He's impossible. Ronan also reminds me of the Taylor Swift song that makes me cry every time I hear it...so I'm okay vetoing that one. We could also shorten Deanda to Dean...but we haven't tossed that around yet. Naming babies is hard, y'all! LOL!
Anyone else keeping the name a secret? With DD, we didn't share with anyone until she was born and we will so the same again with DS.
I'm just gonna say, and I know there's a thousand-post thread for weird baby names but I'm putting this here, that DH and I visited a potential daycare this morning. We saw name tags for "Atlas" and "Lincoln." Huh.In any other town I might have thought Lincoln was a fun name, but we live in Illinois ("Land of Lincoln"), and in Chicago where there's neighborhoods named Lincoln Square and Lincoln Park; also a place called Lincolnwood.Maybe baby Atlas' parents love to travel as much as we do, in which case that's quite creative. But then I saw two different Quinn tags and Quinn is on our short list, so maybe I'll shy off that a bit.
We love the name Benjamin, but our last name starts with J. So his initials would be BJ? What do you guys think? Would we be just setting him up for being made fun of? Or not that big of a deal? I keep going back and forth!!!I seriously LOVE the name Benjamin. Honestly I wouldn't care about the BJ thing personally.
