  • If it ends in N it feels a little themey with Vivian and Nolan. I vote Grant.

  • Thanks Ladies!  These ideas are super helpful.  I like Alex, but my best friend named her son that, so I can't use it.  I agree that ending with "n" is too matchy with our other names.  When I wrote our list, I realize how many we like end with "n," so that will be tricky.

    Would you consider: Maxwell, Maximus, or Maxim for the NN Max?  Similar to Alex. 

  • For what it's worth - I like them all ending in "n" as it ties them together without being over the top. I really like Hudson with Nolan and Vivian.

    Cole, Grant, Owen, & Finn are my favorites from your list, and any of them would work so beautifully with sibling's names! I personally see nothing wrong with all -n endings.
  • I've met more dogs named Finn than children, so take that for what it is worth!

  • I wouldn’t focus on the “n” ending. Just choose what you like. From your list I like Owen best hands down.
  • Thank you all so much!  I think you might be right that the "n" ending shouldn't be the determining factor.  I find boy names so challenging! 
  • For those of you who like Owen, do you think it's too much of a tongue twister with Nolan?  
  • It is a little bit of a tongue twister. But not too bad. 
    My personal favorite from your list is Grant.
