My husbands family has a tradition that the first born boy's name begins with T and his middle name is Edward. I can't think of any T names that I'm in love with. Thomas and Timothy are a little too common for me, but I don't want anything too strange. Right now our top three are:


Any thoughts?

I like Thatcher. I am not a fan of Trace as it sounds like Tracey to me which sounds like a girls name and Truman sounds like a last name to me.

Thatcher Edward I think goes well.

Trace Edward actually does sound good but... I said why I didn't like it

Truman Edward I don't like at all.


I really like the name Thomas, I think it grows with a person, as a baby it is cute and traditional, as a teen/ early 20ish it's probably "Tommy" and then when they are older it's Thomas again.


Here are some other T names I like, though you may not like any of them

Thanks for all the suggestions!

My husband likes Thatcher the best, but I'm worried that it's too much of a mouthful for a kid. Could you use Tad as a nickname or is that too far off?

We both like Trace, but as someone else mentioned we're worried people might call him Tracey, which is definitely a girls name in our minds.

Lots of people suggested Tyson, which I like, especially with nickname Ty, but wouldn't you worry about the association with the chicken company or the former boxer/rapist?

When I say Tyson, I think Mike Tyson :s

The shortened version of Thatcher is Thatch , well that's what I've heard at least. I think Thatch is easy for kids to say, it's one syllable, but if you really like Tad that's a fine nickname too.

Edit: just thought a T first name with Edward as a middle name can be nicknamed "TED" T-edward.

Trace Edward sounds good, out of what you picked. I think Thatcher looks better on paper - Thatch. Thatch. Thatch. Picture saying that a zillion times.

I like Thomas Edward. I saw someone suggest Trent Edward - I think that sounds great for an adult but I would have a hard time calling a mushy little baby Trent - it's so grown up! I also liked the suggestion Theo/Theodore Edward. Theo has a great ring to it and the only Theo/dores that pop up for me are all positive connotations - Theo Huxtable and Theodore Roosevelt - win win!
