For some reason the name Bear has reeeeaaaly stuck on me. Everyone is going to call me crazy! I love it though. I told my hubby and he said he wouldn't mind naming our son (if we ever have one) that. I am shocked he is ok with it. I just have no idea on a mn.

Bear John Cameron
Bear Emery Cameron
Bear Keith Cameron
Bear Lyle Cameron
Bear Joseph Cameron
Bear Johan Cameron
Bear Daniel Cameron

I also like the sound of Bear Gabriel

All of those middle names are from family names (except or Gabriel). Oh and our last name is Cameron.

I am sure you are all going to think it's a weird name but be easy on me ok. lol

I like Bear Joseph Cameron a lot. I like the fact that he could go by BJ or Joseph or Joe if he doesn't like Bear.

I have heard of a child named Bear before. Unfortunately it was a sad news story but I did remember his name. I didn't think it awful at the time. You could also use the name of a type of Bear and nn him Bear. Kodiak for example.. Actually I can't think of another species besides Kodiak that would work.

Anyway I think Bear needs a long MN that doesn't end in N. It does sound good with Gabriel

This is what I came up with

Bear Alexander
Bear Antonio
Bear Jeremiah
Bear Ezekiel
Bear Xaviar (ex AY vee ur)
Bear Alonzo
Bear Elijah
Bear Orlando
Bear Emmanuel
Bear Isaiah
Bear Nathaniel

Bolded my faves

I think it would be cuter to nick name him Bear and name him something else. But I just think that Bear is a really cute nick name - I have no issues with it as a given name though. His girlfriend will love it.

I would honestly avoid middle names beginning with J. I know a guy named Brandon Joel Lastname, and the initials "BJ" were not kind to him. I'd also leans towards a more traditional middle name, so he could choose to go by it rather than Bear if he doesn't like it.

Bear Alexander Cameron
Bear Michael Cameron
Bear Andrew Cameron
Bear David Cameron
Bear Emmett Cameron
Bear Everett Cameron
Bear Matthias Cameron
Bear Theseus Cameron
Bear Travis Cameron

Thanks for the suggestions. We would like to stick with a family name but I don't know, I will ave to discuss it with DH.

Bear David is nice because it is my dad and brother's name. But I think there are already enough Davids. lol

I like how Bear Alexander Cameron sounds.

Bear Travis might work ok, it is a name from my hubby's family.

I LOVE Bear Matthias Cameron!!! That is an awesome name. Thanks!!

My hubby brought up the idea of giving 2 middle names since he has two middle names.

Two middle names would be fine, but it's tricky to get a good flow (I picked random names based on their syllables):

131 - Bear Matthias Luke Cameron
121 - Bear David Luke Cameron
111 - Bear Luke Brock Cameron (the worst flow, IMO)

112 - Bear Luke David Cameron
122 - Bear David Matthew Cameron
132 - Bear Matthias David Cameron
(I think this has a best flow)

133 - Bear Matthias Nathaniel Cameron
(quite a mouthful, but flows well)
123 - Bear David Matthias Cameron (not bad)
113 - Bear Luke Mathias Cameron

I think its a fine name, alittle out there but I can see it working. I also really like Bjorn (from behindthename.com -- From an Old Norse byname meaning "bear".)

Just a sidenote: Maybe consider Davis or Davin as an alternative to David.

These are what I am thinking about...

Bear Matthias Lyle Cameron

Bear Matthias Emery Cameron

Bear Matthias John Cameron

Lyle is my hubby's middle name and Emery is my FIL's middle name and John is a name passed down to many of the men in my hubby's family. I don't know if I am happy with how any of them sound but they could grow on me I guess. I really like Matthias because it's a great name and it would be like Matthew which is my hubby's best friend who was in a horrible motorcycle accident and now he has some brain damage and can't walk or talk. I don't know. I guess I will have to discuss it more with the hubby.

I know a Bear! Actually his name is Brandon nn Bear.

I like your Dh's idea of two nn's.

Bear Emery Lyle would be nice.

i made a post a week or so ago about the name Bear.. its the only name DH likes that i like.. so our son will be named Bear.. which i thought was a cute, but out there match for my son Hunter (Bear Hunter)

but we wont be spelling it as Bear.. we will spell it Behr or Behre

we will also use two middle names.. being my son has two middle names.. so to keep the tradition going it will be

Behr (Behre) Kingston Vaughen Mai (is the last name)
