Baby Names

Which is your favorite?

Husband or I are not fans of “Xander” spelling. 

Reese was my absolute favorite for a girls middle name, but this will be our last baby... so was contemplating using “Rhys” instead.

    Neither. I'd use Reece as a first name before Zander (either spelling).

    Sorry I dislike both. Reese was traditionally male so you could use that as a first name or use the same spelling as his middle. I’d rather Alexander nn Xander/Zander because I am more traditional.

    Seriously, please go back to the drawing board.  I agree with PP on Alexander with the NN Xander.

    Oh boy. Based on your recent posts, you seem to be into the super trendy names. Which is fine, but you won’t get much positive feedback here. 

    I second Alexander (nn Xander) as a solid, real name with more trendy nn potential. Your other name suggestions here and in other posts make me cringe. But, I’m a traditional name kinda gal.

    Zander Rhys sounds better to me.

    If you chose the Alexander nn Zander route Alexander Rhys is nice too. So is Rhys Alexander.

    I would go with Rhys as a first name. If you really like Zander, I would choose the Alexander nn Zander route as well. But, also big on traditional names.

    Yeah, why not use the name Alexander and just refer to him as Zander, kind of the way a man born in the 1970s could be Robert but called Bobby as a child and Bob or Rob as an adult.  That way as he grows older he has a ton of options.  Xander/Zander is really trendy and nick-namey, and he might wind up in a profession where that could make a difference.
