So we had decided on the name William, however I found out that we cannot use the name, at all. Bad meaning.

Well I'm at a loss at where to start for a new name.

I love Lucien, but it would be impossible for SO's family to pronounce properly (they're all mainly Spanish speaking) & SO hates it.

His sisters are Megan Lily & Emily Winter.. I love the name Phoenix (as a MN) but its not a 100% however, I would like to keep the theme of a nature themed MN.

Any suggestions at all are okay!

I like Finn or Finnlay, but I think Finnlay Phoenix is too matchy.. However, I like Finnlay Sage.

I do like Jacob as well, it goes with the simple FN's we have for the girls..

What's wrong with the meaning of William?

Quote:
The boy's name William \ wi(l)-liam\ is pronounced WIL-yum. It is of Old German origin, and the meaning of William is "will helmet, protection". For a long time after the Norman conquest in AD 1066, three out of four English boys were given some form of the conqueror's name, William. Short forms and variants came into being with a common basic meaning of "will", "determined", or "resolute". William has remained a royal name in the UK for nearly one thousand years. The firstborn son of the current Prince of Wales is named William. Wilhelm is a German form; actor Willem Dafoe has made the Dutch form familiar since the 1980s. See also Willard. Playwright William Shakespeare; actors William Hurt, Billy Crudup, Bill Pullman; film director Wim Wenders; poet William Blake; author William Faulkner; American Presidents William H. Harrison, William H. Taft, William McKinley; Bill Clinton.

Megan, Emily & Gavin Stone. I just thought of the name Stone as I was replying to you Debbie. Plus Gavin is a flipping fantastic name

I love Gavin!
What about Wesley or Westin? Both are kind of similar to William.
