Dh isn't agreeing to any names that I like. You ladies seem to have really good suggestions as I have been reading through them.

The name has to be one syllable. The mn will be Ricky after my Uncle that passed away last year. I am not too concerned with the first name "going well" with the mn. I just want an uncommon but manly name.

Siblings names are Brynn, Emme (pronounced "M") and Pierce.

I am going to come at Dh with a list and he will have to pick a couple off of it. I'm tired of the name game drama. LOL.

TIA!

Oh and a few of the names that I really like just to give you an idea are

Drake
Crew
Royce

Wanted to add that the only boy name we have agreed on is Greer which I really love but it rhymes with queer. I know that sounds horrible but our last name already rhymes with penis and the kids already catch crap for that. So I don't want to make it too terrible for him. LOL WDYT? Would you still go with a name that they will most likely get made fun of for?

Honestly, I'd probably skip Greer. I think kids will be teased for just about anything, and most of the time I don't suggest scratching a name off because it's teasing waiting to happen, but in this case I make an exception. If they already get teased about their surname, adding a tease-able first name in there just seems like a bad idea to me, especially when the potential one-liners are on the same subject.

Baby boy names:
Jace
Bruce
Dax
Max
Brent
Brett
Ace
Blake
Chance
Chase
Jack
Jude
Lance (my favorite)
Paul
Quinn
Reid
Scott
Grant

Those are the ones off the top of my head.

Greer is a girl's name?? I think it is way too masculine for a girl IMO. Oh well it probably won't make the cut anyways bc of the rhyming.

I like the names everyone! Already added more to my list!

Greer is one of those names that people give to girls when they really shouldn't. Really though, it's neither a boy name nor a girl name, but a surname. It is now given to girls because the "surnames as first names for girls" trend has gotten out of control.

Great selections! I appreciate the help. I added more to the list. I think I will go at Dh with 10 names.

I agree with the surname for girls trend getting out of control. Its hard to name a boy now. All the little girls have boy names or what use to be boy names. I think they are cute but still. Some names should be left for the boys.

From what I've read Greer has been used pretty exclusively as a girl's name for a while now (since the 40's and 50's because of an actress Greer Garson) but it originally comes from a surname. But I looked at a few different sites and it says it comes from the surname Gregory and can be used for a male and a female.

In the case of Greer Garson, Greer was her second middle name, and her mother's surname. I think the practice of naming babies after the stage names of models/actresses/singers is ridiculous, but maybe that's just me. And just because a name is used more on girls than boys doesn't make it actually a girl's name. In fact, it just ruins it for either gender, IMO. You can't use it on a girl because it's a boy's name, and you can't use it on a boy because everything will think he's a girl. It's depressing.

All that said, I don't mind some boy names on girls, if they have some kind of special meaning to the parents (personally I've considered naming my baby Justin, girl or boy). But using a boy's name on a girl does not MAKE IT a girl's name.

I apologize if my opinion offends anyone. It's just my opinion.

I don't generally like unisex names either and Greer's not my style at all for either gender. I prefer really classic names for both genders in general. But I guess my point was is that Greer was used for a long, long time predominantly as a girls name. I could be wrong but in my lifetime I've never met a boy named Greer. Kind of like Ashley or Aubrey or something, so much so that your automatic thought tends to think 'female'.

Off topic, but we're Irish Catholic and my Mam would tell me stories how when she was a kid there was actually a few boys in her class named 'Mary' because of how much Mother Mary is revered in Catholicism. That kind of blew my mind because I never heard of Mary being anywhere near being used on boys.

anyways sorry GrowBabyGrow, didn't mean to hijack your thread lol!
