Need help with boy name!
 
We are expecting baby #3 in Sept. I know it's so early, but I am constantly thinking of baby names. We have a girl name, but cannot agree on ANYTHING for a boy name! We want Hanks (my mother's maiden name) to be the middle name, but other than that we cannot decide on anything. We had thought about Everett Hanks, but to me that is way too old fashioned. DH loves the name Mason and I love it to, but it seems to be coming way too popular. DH HATES last names as first names and does not go for unusual names. I am the opposite but I am willing to compromise...no last names and nothing weird...just nothing that is soooo popular! Any suggestions?

Bradley Hanks popped into my mind for some reason.

Well, your other children's names both end in -en, so I like the idea of the name for Baby #3 at least ending in the -en sound.

So, here's a list of suggestions with SSA (popularity) rankings (as "popular" vs "weird" is relative):
Zavion - 986
Odin - 981
Deegan - 979
Savion - 966
Garrison - 953
Lennon - 951
Jaron - 943
Koen - 942
Houston - 935
Brogan - 907
Bronson - 897
Samson - 882
Jaxton - 855
Coleman - 812
Zaiden - 763
Keenan - 746
Daxton - 743
Duncan - 732
Sullivan - 652
Teagan - 648
Lawson - 638
Gideon - 549
Cullen - 485
Warren - 463
Brycen - 456
Braylen - 412
Byron - 401
Colten - 392
Quentin - 375
Greyson - 347
Rowan - 336
Holden - 333
Paxton - 327
Cohen - 323
Jameson - 319
Declan - 308
Anderson - 288
Corbin - 278
Weston - 269
Simon - 263
Easton - 252
Brennan - 243
Harrison - 242
Griffin - 233
Keegan - 228
Kingston - 225
Roman - 206
Camden - 194
Lincoln - 188
Braxton - 174
Ivan - 136
Devin - 124
Nolan - 122
Preston - 120
Colin - 112
Caden - 103
Jaden - 101
Hayden - 91
Tristan - 80
Ian - 73
Sebastian - 70
Julian - 62
Cameron - 59

Some of them are surnames/last-names, but Mason and even Stephen are last names.

I think Everett Hanks is a great name!

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
Thanks ladies!! I really like a lot of the names given. I like Braxton a lot (it was my grandad's name)...so maybe Braxton Everett? And I like Everett Hanks also...just can't decide!

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
I like Everett Hanks A LOT better than Braxton Everett. Braxton is ok, but not my favorite.

I love the suggestion of Easton Hanks..that is fabulous! LOVE the nn East. SO cool!

Others I don't think have been mentioned (sticking with 'n' ending):

Dawson Hanks
Landon Hanks
Carson Hanks
Deacon Hanks
Talon Hanks
Waylon Hanks

Austin Hanks
Boden Hanks (Bodie)
Clayton Hanks

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
I like Everett Hanks and Braxton Everett!

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
are you going for the same ending as your other 2 kids?

I like Camden Hanks or Camden Everett.

Braxton is a super cute name!

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
Thanks ladies ya'll are so great! I really LOVE Camden! I never thought of that! And I like Austin a lot, but we have a close family member named Austin...it's just so hard!

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
I like some of MommaOnCloud9's suggestions. I think Duncan, Warren, Simon and Tristan all sound good with Hanks or Everett as a middle name.

If you aren't intent on the same ending, here are some more suggestions that aren't too trendy, too oddball, or too last-namey (I hope):

Timothy Hanks
Nathaniel Hanks or Nathaniel Everett
Gabriel Hanks
Tyler Hanks or Tyler Everett
Adrian Hanks or Adrian Everett
Micah Hanks or Micah Everett

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
I agree with the others that keeping the -en ending would be nice. I like Camden, Easton, and Everett, in that order from the suggestions above!

Re: Need help with boy name!
 
I mentioned Camden to DH tonite and he didnt say yes and he didn't say no. I am going to try to keep bringing it up. I think it would be really cute to call him Cam! I really think this baby is a boy..that is why I am so determined to get a boy name.
