Baby Name Help

[ 5 ] Comments

Screen shot 2009-10-05 at 5.24.08 PMUsually so many people give “unrequested” advice, especially in pregnancy. But I am having a much more difficult time coming up with names for this boy! Jason and I have really only had 1 or 2 serious conversations about names. (All other conversations have been in jest, and have involved 1 or both of us coming up with terrible names…) So far, I think we have only agreed on maybe 2 names that neither of us hate.

So, I am officially asking for your name ideas. As I previously mentioned on facebook, I have only 3 criteria:

1. It has to work with our names, first and last. (i.e. One we actually both liked was Logan- but sounds too much like Morgan. And I always liked Mason, but that rhymes with Jason!) I haven’t always loved the double consonant sound, but I’m not yet officially ruling out names starting with “G.”

2. It has to be ALL boy! Because we like androgynous names for girls, we want our boy to have a name that won’t be confused with a girl’s name. (i.e. Not Taylor, Jordan, Bailey, etc. – all of which would have been in the running if we were having a girl.)

3. I would like it to be somewhat uncommon. It doesn’t have to be completely original or unique. I just don’t want it to be a name that 4 other kids his age have.

So, that’s it. Have at it! Maybe we’ll give a prize to the person who comes up with a name we end up using! 🙂

    I don’t have any name suggestions- sorry. But I’d say that it doesn’t really matter that mason and jason rhyme. When would you ever really say those two names right together. If you like Mason I say use it. I”d say the same about Logan too, the names do sound similar, but since they start w/ completely different sounding first letters I don’t think it would be a problem. good luck on the name hunt, I know how that goes

    I feel for ya! We just had to come up with a name, and it’s HARD! We didn’t agree on the middle name until we saw him. I have no suggestions… I’m exhausted from picking names for our baby, but all I can say is GOOD LUCK!!!

    Have you come up with a name yet? Sorry, I’m a little slow in blog reading lately. But, I do have some suggestions. I keep thinking I need 3 more boys to cover all the names I want. I’m happy to share them with you since that’s absolutely NOT going to happen.
    Cooper, Crew, and Cohen. I also really like Kade and I think that sounds cute with your family names. Hey, we need to chat, by the way. I have a big question for you. I won’t write anymore on your comment section, but expect an email from me. Loves!

    I love the name Mason, too. But other names that have ranked high on our boy lists are: Gavin, Emmett, Dean, and Brandon. Hope it helps! Take care!
