Ok, we had a list of 8 girls names we loved for last baby and this one, due in April. Of course, both the last and this one are boys!

Our daughter is Andie Kathleen (My maiden name: Anderson, my mom's name: Kathleen)

Our son is Frederick (Freddie) Joseph Michael (Frederick is a name that runs in both my family and DH's, Joseph: Dh's dad's middle name. Michael: my dad's middle name).

We are SO stuck on a boys name for this one. We feel we're out of "family names" and we'd like to stick with the "ie" theme if we can.

We have considered:
MacKenzie Christopher (middle name is DH's name)
Thomas (Tommie)
Theodore (Teddie, but that's too much like Freddie)

We have ruled out: Jessie, Scottie, Benjamin (Bennie), Leonard (Lennie).

We're not insisting on an IE name, it would just be nice. More than an IE name, we just want something we both like and we want something traditional, but not too common.

Any suggestions at all would be appreciated!!!!

Thank you to *~Joni~* for my beautiful siggy!!

Boy names are harder than girl names. Good luck to you!

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys. We have to rule out: Charlie and Ollie (names of nephews) and Eddie (Andie, Eddie and Freddie might be a bit much!). We are leaning towards Jonnie.....DH's dad was John. Of course, MIL doesn't like it, but she hasn't liked much about this pregnancy at all!

Thank you to *~Joni~* for my beautiful siggy!!

I really like Douglas for a name, mostly because I think little baby Dougie is adorable
Susan, dh Tom, dd Megan (15), ds Marcus (13), Our together miracle, baby Dean, 17 months

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

TTC with PCOS for 5 very long years. Annovulatory cycles. Multiple doctors. Different meds. One horrible loss. And then one wonderful success, born 2/18/14.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13

Daniel - Dannie
William - Willie or Billie
David - Davie (my dad's aunts always called him his)
Timothy - Timmie
Mathew - Mattie
Michael - Mikie or Mickey
Nicholas - Nickie
Kenneth - Kennie
Joseph - Joey
Paul - Paulie
Frank - Frankie
Peter - Petie
Lawrence - Larry

You ruled out Leonard not sure why but another nickname besides Lennie is Lonnie.

Wow can you tell I came from an era where boys with y/ie nicknames were common? I do prefer the y ending verses the ie for most of the names as it ie seems more feminine for some unlike Freddie which is still very masculine.

My 2 miracles: Lucinda & Noah
