Husband and I are at an impasse for naming this baby. We have it narrowed down to 2, so at least that's something. Can you please give me your honest opinion? I love them both, for different reasons. His middle name will be John, after one of my great-grandfathers.

I like Calvin John better than Wyatt John. I think Wyatt is a nice, classy name though. But I just think Calvin sounds better with John. If he were my student, I'd even call him Calvin John I do that with some students when I like their first/middle combo. Or first/last combo.

I like both equally, which I guess is not helpful. There wasn't an option for that so I didn't officially vote.

That's exactly why I didn't make that an option. LOL!! I like them both equally too, so I'm looking for a kind of tie-breaker. But thank you for your input.

I cast my vote for Calvin! I think it flows better with John, but my main reason is that I tend to shy away from the more popular names (says the mama with an Alexis. but that was a family naming!) and I hear of a lot more Wyatt's than I hear Calvin's nowadays.

Yep, that's correct! LOL. I asked them to come here and vote, rather than having two polls.

I think at the end of the day you need to go with what you love. I would suggest maybe waiting until he is born to make the final decision. You may see him and say you are such a Calvin or you are for sure a Wyatt. Just my two cents. Neither of the names are my style but I prefer Wyatt.

I chose Calvin! We were also stuck between two names and if Tucker wasn't born on the 16th (the number of a hockey player with the last name Tucker) I don't know how we would have chosen!

Good luck

I really like both, great choices. I voted Wyatt though, because the meaning of Calvin is bald I think, and it reminds me of a Calvin I knew and the protestant reformer John Calvin

Wyatt. I don't like Calvin at all, but I will say it sounds better with John. That's not enough to sway me though because middle names are not at all important to me. I can count on one hand how many times I've uttered my children's middle names.

Well this isn't helping AT ALL! LMAO! So far, it's pretty much neck to neck, with a hand full of people who don't like either one of them! I was hoping for a tie breaker! LOL!!!!!!!

I like Calvin John better, depending on what your last name is/sounds like. But after reading all the responses I would also recommend maybe following Lyndsey's advice and waiting till the birth to decide?

I have a 7 year old named Wyatt Christopher, so I am biased. I do hate how popular it has become (and continues to rise). When I chose it, it was not common at all. My son, however, LOVES his name. He is always getting told by other kids that he has a cool name. I do not think boys mind having 'common' names, I think that is more of a girl thing. My son also knows the meaning of his name (brave warrior) and thinks that is neat.
With that said, I do really like the name Calvin, but dislike the meaning (bald; hairless). Meaning is very important to me. My children are all either named after a family member or have a name with a nice meaning.
One thing to consider is that if you chose Wyatt, you may feel the need to stick with a W trend - since he's joining brother William.

I voted Wyatt but I do like them both. Since I HAD to pick one, I picked Wyatt because I like the movie Wyatt Erp or whatever that movie is. I liked it.
