I'm not feeling boy's names at the moment and I'm looking for new ideas.

I like my boy names to be two syllable's w/ a one syllable nn. (Coleman/Cole, Lucas/Luke)

At the moment, my top 3 are Maxwell/Max, Lincoln/Linc/Lee and Archer/Arch

I've always liked Max but I haven't ever been in love w/ Maxwell. Maximus has been tossed around but I'm not really sure about it.

For girls, I'm loving Lorelai/Lola, Camilla/Milly and Delilah/Lila. In that order. I'm about 98% percent sure that if I have a girl she will called one of those three. Which make me feel like it will be a boy because I'm not nearly as satisfied with those choices.


So, wdyt? Suggestions?

I love Delilah. I wanted to name Laliyaah, Delilah, but her dad didn't like it, so I "tweaked" it.

I like Bible names for boys, so I am probably not much help, my absolute favorite boys name is Obadiaah.

I'm no help at all with boys' names... I couldn't come up with one for this baby just in case she was a boy to save my life. I do like Max, but like others said it is pretty common. I love all your girls names you have picked!

Max is not common here and I am a big Where the Wild Things Are fan. But growing up with Nintendo makes me partial to Linc. I like Archer but do not love the nn Arch. What happened to Griffin/Finn, wasn't that on the list at one point?

I like Jackson but our last name ends in -son so I try to avoid names w/ the same ending.

Griffin is still on the long list (and has been since #4) but for some reason it never gives me the right vibe when I'm pregnant. Half my girls list has been eliminated for the same reason which is so frustrating.

I was iffy on Arch for awhile too but after googling it, I'm starting to like it more and more. Arch - meaning of Arch name here's the link I found on it. I like it's meaning better than the meaning of Archer actually.


Samuel/Sam -- I go back n forth on this one
Jacob/Jake -- love but it's super popular in my area
Griffin/Griff/Finn -- on the list, probably ranking in at #4 atm
William/Bill/Will -- like it but dh doesn't
The other's just aren't my style.


I probably should have mentioned that Max, Milly, and Lola are all family names. Grace is a family name as well and is being considered as a mn.

We don't decide on names until after the last ones have been born, so I"m no help. Good luck!
