Baby boy naming is hard.
 
We are having the worst time with names!! It's driving me nuts. I'll be 30 weeks this Sunday and we need to decide something soon!
Boy names are so hard, I actually had a girl name all ready to go.

Middle name will be Thomas after my stepfather who passed away.

So what we have so far:
Burke (my mom's maiden name, Tom hates it)
Clark
Dean
Douglas
Frederick
Henry
Jeffrey
Jonah
Keith
Kenneth
Lee (my dad's name)
Micah (my favorite, Tom doesn't love it)
Orrin
Owen (kinda popular, Tom's favorite)
Samuel (one of my faves, but kinda popular)
Simon (I love this one!)
Timothy (Tom's other fave, I hate the nickname Timmy that people will use)
Travis
Trevor

Anything jump out at you? Any other suggestions? It's hard to still have such a long list!!

Have you slimmed down your list at all?

I wouldn't do any of the T- names with Thomas for a middle name. It's too cutesie.

From your list, I like these ones best with the Thomas pairing:

Frederick
Micah
Orrin
Owen
Simon

Also, just so you know, Dean Thomas is a character from Harry Potter (I'm not sure whether that matters to you or not).

I like Simon and Owen. Owen is what we are naming this one, and I hate that it is so popular now but it's DH middle name and has been our boy name for 9 years :)

I'm also really liking Clark. It is not common but not so unique that it is weird. Clark Thomas has a good ring I think!

I was in that boat myself not too long ago! we couldn't settle on a boy name, but the middle name was set to be Thomas. when we couldn't pick a first name we put Thomas in the first name slot. some of the ones we considered:

Aaron
Isaac
Gavin
Henry
Nolan
Benjamin

No, the Harry Potter thing doesn't bug me, he wasn't exactly a really main character, so I don't think most would even realize.

Kind of. lol Tom and I each agreed to pick five names each and list them in order of how we liked them. Unfortunately, we gained a whole new one... But surprisingly out of the ten, some were the same, so we are down to seven:

Clark
Dean
Jason
Keith
Kenneth
Owen
Samuel


Simon and Micah were my favorites, but I just can't get him to bend on it. So I guess those are out :(

Owen and Samuel get my vote.

I like Clark and Dean, they both sound nice with Thomas. Dean Thomas is probably my favorite from those listed. Good luck!
