Hey ladies,

We just found out yesterday that we are expecting another baby boy. So far the only name my husband and I agree on is Jaxon. The middle name will be Richard, which is after my husband's father who passed away a few years ago. My only worry with this name is that we will have to correct everyone who spells it, and I don't like the traditional spelling of it. Our last name is ridiculous and is 9 characters long and we always have to spell it for everyone. I'm not sure if I want to add correcting a first name to that as well.

My other kid's names are Keira, Owen, and Alivia.

Do you guys have any other suggestions that are fairly short that sound good with our other kid's names? There is kind of a theme going on. The girls names (including mine) all end with "a". We thought it would be cute if the boy name ended with an "n" like Owen, but it's not necessary!
Thank you Jaidynsmum for my super cute siggy!

I've seen a lot more "jaxon's" lately (and know quite a few) so I don't think mispronunciation should be too big of an issue. I love your kids name btw!

I would already need two of your three children to spell their names for me (Alivia, since it does sound similar to Olivia. And Keira can be spelled Kiera or Kira and I wouldn't assume either way in particular). I wouldn't think twice about naming a boy jaxon.

I am an Ashlee with a last name that requires spelling, not for difficulty, but because no one hears it properly when we say it (one of the letters hides). I truly don't mind too much. And Jaxon is even more popular than my spelling. I don't think you would be "saddling" him with anything over the top or anything.

I think that if you and DH love it...you should go for it. It fits nicely with your other name choices (which I clearly like, since my son has the male version of one of your daughters names). Congrats on your boy!! Quite a nice balance going on there you have

lol That's funny. My hubby's name is Richard and we're thinking of naming our first boy "Jaxson". Your spelling is just fine, and I don't think people would pronounce it wrong. I think it works great.

I like Jaxon, and especially the spelling. Jackson is becoming very common (though on our list of names), but I really like Jaxon with Richard, and it has the ending "n".

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!
