boy name help!

DH and I can't decide on a boy name. Our list so far: Blake, Tyler, Leo, Ryan, Levi, Lucas, Liam, Owen, Brady, Evan, James and Andrew. I also like Joel and Asher but DH doesn't.

I lean towards Leo (is that weird for it not to be short for anything?) or maybe Lucas (but don't want Luke as a nickname) but DH isn't sold on those.

DH picked Andrew and it's the only name he seems to really like but I'm not convinced...and I wouldn't want Andy as a nickname. I also have a 2nd cousin named Andrew but we aren't close so I don't think that really matters.

DD's name is Jenna and our last name starts with M if that helps any

I thought that baby #2's middle name would either be Thomas (after FIL who passed away) or at least start with a T but DH doesn't really seem to want to do that...so I don't know if that should factor into the name decision or not.

What do you think? What boy names should we add to our list? We both have yet to find one that we LOVE.

I like Andrew and Owen. Andrew was my first son's name and Owen will be this ones name! I also have an Alexander, Xander for short. I also like Evan from your list. I'm partial to names that start with vowels though.

From your list I like Blake, Ryan, Levi, Lucas and Liam...Lucas/Luka and Liam were actually high on our list for DS3, but we ended up going with Logan
Other names that were high on our list were Tristan and Oliver

DH shot that one down too. I told him to make me a list of names he likes and all he came up with was Owen, Brady, Evan, and Andrew...but he only really likes Andrew.

Thank you all for the suggestions! I'll see what he thinks of them when he gets home

I think that Andrew is a great name, and if you don't want to do Andy, you could use Drew as a nn. I had a cousin who was Andrew and no one ever called him Andy, fwiw

Re: boy name help!

When we were naming DS3 (we name our babies after they're on the outside), we crossed "Andrew" off our list because we didn't like Drew and we didn't care for Andy. But it was the only thing that fit him, so we named him Andrew, and we always either call him Andrew or Ander. It's a good name
