Banging my head against the wall - boys names
 
Ok, we had a list of 8 girls names we loved for last baby and this one, due in April. Of course, both the last and this one are boys!

Our daughter is Andie Kathleen (My maiden name: Anderson, my mom's name: Kathleen)

Our son is Frederick (Freddie) Joseph Michael (Frederick is a name that runs in both my family and DH's, Joseph: Dh's dad's middle name. Michael: my dad's middle name).

We are SO stuck on a boys name for this one. We feel we're out of "family names" and we'd like to stick with the "ie" theme if we can.

We have considered:
MacKenzie Christopher (middle name is DH's name)
Thomas (Tommie)
Theodore (Teddie, but that's too much like Freddie)

We have ruled out: Jessie, Scottie, Benjamin (Bennie), Leonard (Lennie).

We're not insisting on an IE name, it would just be nice. More than an IE name, we just want something we both like and we want something traditional, but not too common.

Any suggestions at all would be appreciated!!!!

Boy names are harder than girl names. Good luck to you!

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys. We have to rule out: Charlie and Ollie (names of nephews) and Eddie (Andie, Eddie and Freddie might be a bit much!). We are leaning towards Jonnie.....DH's dad was John. Of course, MIL doesn't like it, but she hasn't liked much about this pregnancy at all!

I really like Douglas for a name, mostly because I think little baby Dougie is adorable ;)

You ruled out Leonard not sure why but another nickname besides Lennie is Lonnie.

Wow can you tell I came from an era where boys with y/ie nicknames were common? :lol: I do prefer the y ending verses the ie for most of the names as it ie seems more feminine for some unlike Freddie which is still very masculine.
