We've got ~6 weeks til DS#2 arrives, and we are at a standstill for coming up with a name. DH is set on Colin Alexander, and I'm set on Jacob David. No where close, right? DH doesn't want to use Jacob because it's so popular (#1 for the past decade) and thinks David doesn't flow with it. While I like Alexander, I just can't picture using Colin. Our other son's name is Ryan Matthew. Any thoughts? Thanks!!!

well I like Colin and Jacob about the same, but I would go with Colin personally being that I personally wouldn't use a very popular name. How about making Alexander the first name since you both seem to like it?

Alexander Jacob would be my choice! Or Colin Jacob. Then both of your boys would have a biblical middle name, which is kind of a neat connection! I also like David Alexander. All of your names make good sibsets with Ryan, so I think for you guys, it is merely finding the right combo that you can both be happy with.

I like the Alexander suggestion. Of your listed options, I'd pick Colin (though I much prefer the spelling Collin) over Jacob due to popularity.

If you go with Jacob, I'd suggest Jacob Alexander because Jacob David repeats the long A sound. :smile:

Thanks, ladies! I wish we could use Alexander as the first name, but we have a nephew (whom we see alot) with the same name, and while I would call him Xander for short, DH vetos that totally. Ditto for David being a nephew's name (as well as my father). (My SIL has 4 boys, and three are all older than my first son, so she took alot of the names I like. lol).

DH has started calling the baby Colin, so we'll see what combo we come up with. Other suggestions are still welcome too! Thanks!

Maybe go with Colin Jacob then both of you will be happy. Can call him CJ for short if that appeals to you. GL

There are other nns you could use for Alexander Jacob - AJ, Lex, and Zane.

As far as Colin, Colin Alexander and Colin Jacob both go well together.

GL!
