Brother for Meredith

Hi everyone! We were completely convinced we were having a girl and we had the name Laurel picked out. Surprise! Its a boy! In need of suggestions please! Here is our short list that Im lukewarm about. Our last name is very common and one syllable. 
Samuel
Garrett
Derrick
Lucas

Re: Brother for Meredith

  • Love Derrick but slightly greys anatomy fan girl with Meredith with is also fantastic. I vote Garrett. Lucas and Samuel are too common with Meredith for me

  • I like Samuel with Meredith. 

    I prefer the spelling Derek to Derrick. 

    Love the suggestion of Lawrence.  For nicknames he could be Laurie (not a fan of Larry on a baby)

  • I have a Samuel, and I love his name! I have only ever met 2 others, even though I was worried it would be super common

    Meredith has a classic feel to it that I'm not sure your list of boy names has. Luke and Sam are a little too over-used and Derrick and Garrett are too close to Derek on Grey's Anatomy. I also like he idea of a long hame as a brother to Meredith (she has 8 letters, after all!)  How about:

    Christopher
    Matthew
    Nicholas
    Alastair
    Benjamin
    Nathaniel
    Phillip
    Thaddeus
    Sebastian

    I agree Samuel is not common at all in my area.  I knew one Samuel growing up and as a teacher I think I have had two ever.  Maybe it's getting more popular for babies but not so much that's he's likely to have another Samuel in his class. 
  • @cantrellja I agree with everything you said. I just cant find put my finger on the right name. I want classsic but strong and manly, if that makes sense. Alot of the classic boy names feel too, I dont know pretty and preppy to me. Im not sure that I articulated that very well so I hope you get what I mean.
  • Also: my SIL is Meredith; her brothers are Nicholas, Joseph, and Michael. I happen to like all of those . I also like Christopher, Benjamin, Nathaniel, Daniel, and Andrew with it (I have to use shorter first names because our last name is super long!)
  • I love Samuel!
  • I love Samuel with Meredith as a sibset 

    suggestions:

    Nathaniel
    Oliver
    Holden
    Benjamin
    Thomas
    Desmond
    Tristan
    Graham
    Gregory
    Colin
  • I like Lucas!  Other suggestions...

    Alexander
    Louis/Lewis
    Simon
    Eliott
    Zachary
    Graham
    Nicholas
    Gabriel
  • I have a Meredith. Her bothers are Henry and Matthew. I’d like Owen and George if we were having a boy this round.
