Hi everyone...

According to my ultrasound I'm having a little girl and am due Aug 4th. However, I don't really trust the ultrasound because it didn't sound all that confident... I think it said "likely a girl". DH and I have a girls name picked out: Shannon Tennette (tennette after my mom). However, I find boys names a lot harder (especially now that we know we're 'likely' having a girl).

The only name we've agreed on so far is Ryan Otto, but I'm not 100% on Ryan because I wonder if it's too short of a name to go with our last name, and Otto is also a short name. I'm hoping you guys can help me come up with other ones to take back to DH as suggestions. Here are the contraints.... we both like fairly classical/traditional/common names. We want our son to have a name that's all his own and not the same as anyone else really close in the family (distant cousins are fine). And... it has to work with our last name. Our last name is Dean... which rules out James as a middle name, as well as a number of other names, which you don't think of until you say them out loud... for example Christopher is out, because we don't want our son introducing himself as Chris Dean and then having to explain that he's a boy and his name is NOT Christine. LOL.

Here are the names that have been crossed off the list so far (because of other family members):
Bill/ William
David
Brian (which I love)
Christopher
Patrick
Ken
Doug
Nicholas
Jason
Shane
Justin
Robert
Ivan
Steven

What else are you guys able to come up with for us?

Edited to mention that we're definately going with Otto as a middle name (it's been passed down for generations as a middle name on DH side). So we need something that works with "Otto Dean" as a middle and last name.

Your names are all lovely! I really like traditional, classic names too, but I tend to lean towards names that are a little more different (but still classic names)
Some suggestions I have are:
Dominic Otto Dean
Theodore Otto Dean
Nathaniel Otto Dean
Charles Otto Dean
Henry Otto Dean

Dansgirl... thanks so much on the compliment on Tennette (my mom's only ever met one other person with her name, and that was my grandmothers friend that she was named after).

I can NOT believe that I didn't include Michael in my list of names that was crossed out.... I happen to love the name Michael Otto Dean.... LOL... It's my husband's name!!!

Off your list I like Tyler and Brandon... I'll see what DH thinks of those. Also Tyler reminded me of Tyson which is also pretty good.

I don't know why boys names seem to be so much harder than girls names.

What do you think of Ryan Otto Dean? Do you think it's too many short names? It's been the front runner for boys names so far.

I think Ryan is really cute...and I don't think it's too short with Otto or Dean.

picklesmama June 16th, 2006 11:24 AM

I don't think Ryan Otto Dean is too short. I actually like it best out of all the names suggested so far. Ryan Dean, yep I like it :)

I really like Ryan Otto!! It's a nice name
