afraid this kid won't have a name... time crunch!

My DS is scheduled to be born on the 21st, so I have 3 weeks to get him a name! We struggle with boy names. Each time, it's gotten harder... and we are on boy #3! I need some help, please.

Here are the "rules"...

Traditional name (something tried and true)
No "hanging letters" other than first letter (g, j,p, ect)
Nothing that rhymes with aiden, kayden, jayden, ect


We also don't have a middle name. I fear our poor child will not have a name.

There are only 3 names on our list that I could "live" with, but each has a problem

Kevin - our nephew is Evan, seems too close
David - DH has a cousin named David, seems odd
Eric - DH likes it, but I am not sold on it

Help, please!

I'm only thinking of one or two off the top of my head, but go check out www.behindthename.com, you can search popularity, meaning, origin, etc etc etc etc. HTH!

Re: afraid this kid won't have a name... time crunch!

I don't have any real ideas, but have you tried putting your other sons' names into Nymbler and seeing what it suggests as possible sibling names?

I'm super the wrong person to ask, as I really don't like traditional names, but I'm posting anyway, because I'm due on March 20th and we were just talking about how this baby is going to be like a year old before we pick a name!

I'll try to be more helpful later!

What's wrong with not having a name? Get to know your baby and then name him. I was "Baby James" for 6 days and so was my daughter. In my opinion, you have to know someone before you can name them and give them part of their identity.

Our DD is due the 10th and we've talked about names for about 10 seconds total.
We'll just wait until she's born... Which is odd to me a little bit because I was so anxious to get the other kids named!
