I've been looking nightly for cute boy stuff, but have come up empty so far. I will definitely keep doing that and looking. I'm not sure what I can do that's fun and indulgent... I'm certainly open to suggestions.

I'm only stressed about the name right now because I've already started dilating and my OB tells me not to expect to go full-term, so I'm worried I only have a few weeks left. And if I don't have a name list after 32 weeks.. how will I find *the one* in just a few? I do realize though I don't have to name him at the hospital or really at any specific point in time. I may just not be able to.

My idea would be to let someone who is happy about the baby name him if you don't want to. Such as the father? Or ever a grandmother, aunt or uncle. Maybe not totally ideal but its much better than having no name at all. Good luck!

I am like you and do not care for "trending" or over-popular baby names at all. Plus, I am picky. Like stated, I dont want to pick a name that has to grow on me. DH was named after his father who was named after his father. So, naturally, DH wants to name a son after himself. I hate the idea because I am not fond of his first or middle name since to me they are "outdated." I also dont enjoy the idea of naming a child after the mother/father. I think I just look at that saying "why is that child special enough to be named after one of the parents, but the rest arent?" I do like the idea of naming after grandparents since each child can be named after a different one.

DH and I are still TTC, but we have started putting together a list because I fear I will have a hard time deciding as well. We have already found some names we both love.

I am not sure what style of name might fit you and your family best, but maybe some classic but less popular names might start the brain up and give you some ideas. It is easy for us all to say "dont sweat it," but I can actually see why you are. How old are your daughters? Maybe they have some ideas that could help too!

Best of luck to you all though. Here is a list of names I thought might get the ideas flowing:

Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all.

So Cordelia means of the sea, Gretchen pearl, and judging by your name, that could have a special meaning. What about a water related boy name. I think a not so obvious theme is really special.

Ronan (little seal)
Calder (stream)
Lachlan ( land of lakes)
Lincoln(town by lake)

Also the following sound good with your others

I love katie27's idea about following the 'sea' theme.

Cordelia, Gretchen and Ronan are a perfect fit. All from the sea and all carry the 'r' sound.
