As most of you already know, we had a heck of a time picking a name for Finn.
I thought it would be fun if you ladies would give me a helping hand here.
If it is a boy his middle name will be Thomas after David's grandfather.

These are the names we have on our boy list right now:

Aidan
Benjamin
Caellum
Carter
Cole
Connor
Daniel
Drew
Emmett
Zack

What names on our list do you like? Do you have other suggestions for us?

I like Bentley but last name is Ford. LOL! David doesn't like Oliver.
I think I really like Carter and Aidan best from our list too.

I hate picking boy names. LOL!

Well I'm married to a Benjamin and I have an Emmett, so I'm a little biased.

I wouldn't go with one that rhymes with finn such as Benjamin. Aiden was suuuuuuuper trendy here a few years ago, plus all the aiden like names like Hayden, Brayden, kaden, etc so personally I would avoid that.

I think cole and carter sound good with Finn, and of the two I think I like carter better with your last name. I think Emmett fits the "style" of Finn best... And weren't you also considering Jett and Declan the first time around? I was really pulling for Jett... Put that back on the table!

David's friend stole the name Jett. What a jerk!
We didn't go with Aidan the first time for the same reason.
I am still thinking Declan but will we name him for short?

Is Caellum pronounced like Callum because if so that gets my vote. I would think of it as what KIND of name do you want? For example: If we had a girl I had decided I wanted a very feminine name because Harper's name was so quirky. If we ever have another boy I would like something sophisticated. So figure out if you want old-fashioned, trendy, hip, sophisticated, or whatever and go from there. That should help you narrow your list a bit.

Carter and Emmett are my favourites from your list! DH and I have had a boy name picked out since before Sophia was born, but haven't had the chance to use it, Logan Alexander Thomas.

For fun, I went to nymbler.com and put a few of your list names in for inspiration, along with Finn and here are some that came up...

Oliver
Liam
Blane
Dean
Ross
Colton


It's funny how people tend to gravitate toward the same names. My sister has two sons named cole and drew and if she had had one more, he'd have been named Jett.

From your list, I like Benjamin, Daniel, and Emmett best with your last name. But truly, there isn't a name on your list that I don't like! But wait, didn't we already determine this is a giiiiiirl!!? Hehe, j/k!

Oh, and since you like similar names as my sister, maybe you would like milo. That's one she has thrown at me in the past. Course, all I can think of is the movie about the animals when I hear it...
