What do you think of these names?

I am so stuck on a girl name that I have decided to ignore it completely for a while. So, I was thinking Oliver for a while but then decided to honor my dad if it's a boy. His name is Rex, which is kind of a different name obviously.

Anyway, I like Sheldon and I like Harrison. Sheldon Rex? Harrison Rex? Do either of those sound horrible? What would your reaction be if you met a boy with either of those names?

Oh, and wish me luck on a girl name. I am so lost! No ideas at all.

Re: What do you think of these names?

It's kind of cool, but I can't help but think of Rex as a title for kings...meaning that when I read Harrison Rex, my mind goes to "King Harrison."

I like the name Harrison but there is a very famous actor named Rex Harrison, he was in My Fair Lady, Dr. Doolittle, and many more. Just something to consider. Also, if you shorten the kids names how do you feel about Harry and Ollie?

Yeah always consider the nic names. Do you like Harry, even if you don't plan on using it? My husband and I love the name Edison but I can't do it because I couldn't stand 10 years from now his friends calling him Eddie... but that is just me.

I like Oliver and Sheldon.

We had Harrison high on our list but I hate, yes hate, the name Harry. Even if you don't call him Harry, chances are good that at least by school age others will.

So definitely consider that.

Our girl name was (is?) Hannah. but I think we are done at 2 so I'm willing to share.
