I tell ya, these boys names are DIFFICULT! We thought we had our boys name set in stone but are now possibly thinking a different route. We had Liam picked out but weren't too fond of "lee" for short and then we came across Dawson and really like Daws for short. What do you think? Do you think one goes better with our girls names better than the other? I am very indecisive when pregnant and would really appreciate any opinions. Our last name starts with a "D" as well and ends in "land" if that helps at all.

Thanks a million ladies!

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas with safe travels!!

I much prefer Liam. It's so short it really doesn't need a nickname and I've never even thought about it being shortened to Lee. You could definitlety still use it and never call him Lee for short. Dawson just reminds me of Dawson's Creek and it sounds trendy and a little pretentious. "Daws" sounds very unpleasent, like you're saying "Duh." It falls right in with the surname trend which I'm not fond of. Liam is a far nicer name.

I prefer Liam. Liam is nice just how it is, it doesn't need a nn.

I like Liam. What if you used both? Liam Dawson, that way you could have both names and could call him by his middle name if wanted even, just an idea? Good luck deciding!

I really like both but Dawson gets my vote. Liam is just sooo popular/trendy right now. There would probably be at least one other Liam in his class but I doubt there'd be any other Dawsons.

Well darn! It's a total toss up and between here and my DDC.. it's about neck and neck. I hate being an indecisive person.. ughhhh!
Liam Dawson might be an option as well.

Thanks ladies!!

I like both. I do like combing them as well. Liam Dawson or Dawson Liam work.

I really prefer Liam. Of course I am partial since its my son's name. I hate the nn Lee also but only my fil calls him that once in a while--still ticks me off though. And its not popular where I am so we're good on that front too!

I think Liam goes nicer with your daughters names too.

They are both great names, but Liam has gotten a bit popular lately. Dawson is really cute too - it was on our list. To me, Ava and Faith sound All-American and Liam is a bit more foreign sounding. So Dawson goes better with your girls names IMO. If you love the sound of Liam, but not the popularity - what about Callum? It reminds me of Liam but is less popular.

I really like both. As some girls have already mentioned, you can use them both as a first name and the other a middle.

I prefer Liam. If you don't like Lee for short, I'd just call him Liam! I like Liam Dawson Lastname, as was suggested to use both, sounds great.

Or if you really want a name with options, how about William Dawson? It's solid and traditional, like your daughters' names, and gives him nickname options (Will, Bill, Billy, Liam, etc).
