Name help


Many of you have asked what we will name the new baby. Many of you have told me you are excited to hear the name. But we are having a hard time coming up with a name!

As you know, I really like 1 syllable names, but will it be okay if Charlie's the only one with 1 syllable? (And just a reminder in case you don't know me well - my kids are Jack, Sam, Charlie, and Luke).

I'd love to hear your suggestions on names. First names, middle names, first and middle together, whatever. We need help in all areas! Thanks!


p.s. The above photos is Luke. I don't have any of the others' baby photos on my computer. I might have to do something about that.

I love the names David and James. James works as a 1 syllable name, David has 2 so Charlie doesn't have to feel lonely. I also like Jared or Eric...

Such a cutie Leigh. Congrats to you and the family. You make beautiful babies. Hope all is well :)

Duncan is my current favorite right now. Rowan/Roan (not sure what the correct spelling should be). I like that one because it sounds one syllable when spoken aloud. I also really like Louie. Am I too weird with there? Miles. Possibly getting too popular, but such a great name. Zach, Grant, Asher, Calvin, a lot of these are my nephews. Ooh. I really like Tate. I will probably come back and post more names later. I could talk baby names for hours.

Boy names are infinitely easier for us. Good thing I have 2 boys :]

I'm loving: Nolan, Graham & Andrew.

I really like the names Ian and Collin. good-luck! Such a big chore giving someone something that will follow them all of their lives and something that some people will judge before even meeting the person.

Well, you know what Eric would suggest... Miles and Chaz. He's weird. Keeping with the style of names you have already I think you need a Henry, Hank, Maxwell or Max. Can't wait to meet him!

I could have written this post almost exactly! We cannot for the life of us think of a boy name that fits with our family and 8 weeks doesn't seem that far away! We have Ian and Zoe so we thought about sticking to the 3 letter tradition but I actually like 2 syllable names! Ack, the pressure, lol!

Anyway, here are some names for you :) Max, Will, Gabe, Seth, Brooks, Sawyer, Oliver

If I would have had another boy his name would have been Reid or Guy...good luck!

Eli and Candace said...

I have a nephew named Finn, it's not a super common name and it really fits his "all boy" attitude. Good Luck!

Me? A Mom? said...

I love how well your boy names go together. My thoughts on a good name to "fit" with the others are: Henry, James, Graham, Leo, and Max.

Crystal said...

I like George

Jan said...

What about Cash? That's a pretty happening name. lol. Chance?

I really like Nelson from our moms' dad but because Jimmy is such a Simpson's buff, I think it will only ever be the name of that bully to him, lol.

Jan said...

Oscar? Oliver?

Rebecca said...

How about Levi? It is my husband's name so of course I love it.

Mel said...

I like Hank or Will for the rest of your names...So cute! Can't wait to see what you decide!

Mel said...

Eli...

emily said...

andy said...

merrick or quinton

Katie said...

I'm thinking Felix.

I agree with the previous suggestions of Max, Will and Henry as good names that fit well with your other boys. I also kinda like Rex or Alex (I love boy names that end in X).

Dukes said...

I think Cole fits in your boys' names :)
