A name for Thing 2***updated (we decided!)***

We have about 6 weeks til D-day for "Thing 2" who we've been unable to name up to this point. We just can not agree! Can you help??

We know it's a boy and that the middle name will be Curtis, for DH's dad. Our last name is one-syllable. Here's what we've narrowed it down to after a loooong search session this afternoon; some are his faves, some are mine, some compromises for one or the other.

Let me know why you voted the way you did!

Re: A name for Thing 2

Nolan has always been on my favorite list, but DB vetoes it every time.

This is exactly what I've thought, on numerous occasions! How awful is that, you've got to practice shouting it out to see if it'll work or not!

I do like the meaning of Colin, too--"cub" or "young pup." I think Cub/Cubby could be an adorable nickname for a little guy. And my name is Carolyn Candis, so it would echo the double-C and sound too, which is kinda cool.

Keep the opinions coming!!

Re: A name for Thing 2

I just love the sound of Nolan Curtis. Colin Curtis is pretty good, but in this case I'm not digging the alliteration for sme reason, usually I don't mind it. The others aren't really my style. Good luck!

Re: A name for Thing 2

I voted Graham just for the "ring" of it I guess. I kindof tripped over the double Cs a little too, but like the name Colin also.

Re: A name for Thing 2

Thanks for all the input, mamas! I think we've settled on Nolan, after much back and forth.

Funny thing that sort of sealed the deal: my SIL's brother and his wife, who just had their second daughter and who we know well and see often, confessed last night that Nolan was their pick for a boy, and had been for their first daughter too--just as was the case with us and our first. I told DH that it was like "Hey...but that's OUR name!" and decided if I like it that much to feel sad at the thought of someone else using it, we'd better just use it.

(The brother/SIL are fine with it, for the record--not sure they're having any more kids anyway.)
