I'm expecting my third boy and I have no clue of what to name him. We didn't name DS #2 until the last day we were in the hospital!

I'd like to find something unique (but not oddball) that *goes* with my other sons' names. I was sort of thinking about matching the endings (an/en/on/in) but I'm not necessarily married to that idea.

My daughter's name is Eliza.

My sons are Hayden and Weston.

The only names on our list so far are:

Kellan
Corbin
Finn

The middle name might be Robert, but that's not certain.

Other than those ideas....zippo. I want something that isn't trendy and where I won't run into 5 kids with the same name. Any help would be great!
THANKS!

I love Kellan, I think its so cute

And, I don't think Kellan is that popular... at least not in my area. I know 1 male (mid 20s), and one younger child with this name. The only other time I've heard this name used is a teenager on an MTV reality show.

Corbin and Finn are too trendy if you want to avoid having the same name as other kids.

Kellan is less trendy (I've only heard it a few times) but every other boys' name starts with C or K nowadays. So it will sound really similar to some others, even if he doesn't have the exact same name.

I'm coming back in a bit to offer some suggestions ... I have to find them of course.

Okay, for some reason I think Hudson fits with Weston. It goes with Hayden pretty well too IMO.

Here are some others:

Tennyson
Damian/Damien
Dorian
Donovan
Fabian
Garrison
Harrison
Maximilian
Remington
Solomon
Alton
Anson
Anton
Baron
Benson (or Bensen)
Bronson
Damon
Dawson
Deacon
Eamonn
Keaton
Macon
Marlon
Morrison
Waylon
Wheaton
Brogan
Coleman
Astin
Griffin
Pepin
Quentin
Torrin

I love Corbin!! I don't think you have to worry about any of them being trendy. I have come to realize that some names are popular by area, so if those names are not common in your area then use them. I live in GA and I do not know anyone with any of those names. Good Luck!

Kellan and Finn go best with your other kids names IMO

Finn. I don't know why, but I just liked it with your other kids names. That's the one that jumped out at me. I have heard that it is being used more, but I work with kids, and I've never met one.

Thanks ladies! I appreciate the feedback and the great ideas!

I'm liking Kellan more and more. I've never heard it around here.

Harrison was almost DS #2's name! It hasn't become very popular around here so I guess I could consider it again.

Hudson is a cool suggestion and I like Coleman too.

I love Damon and Eammon but no one else does I guess I'll have to wait and see what the boy looks like!

I know a girl named Kellen, so the name is more on the feminine side for me. I like it but don't think I'd use it for a boy.

I love the Hudson suggestion.
