Need some good boy names. My daughter is Sofi, and my son is Eli, but goes by the nickname Ejah (EE-jah). We just found out we're due with #3 in December, and although we have some time, i'd like to fall in love with a name before giving it to my boy, rather than choosing one at the last second, like we did with my daughter...
Names i like, but am not sold on yet:
-Ezra (too close to Eli or Ejah? And although i love the name, I'm also not super fond of using and "E" name twice)
-Finn (i dont know anyone with this name, but is it too trendy? especially considering my other kids super (accidental) trendy names?)
-Tal (i am pretty petite at 5'0" and my husband is pretty average at 5'10" i'm worried that if my kids end up on the shorter side, a name like Tal might turn out to be a bummer, lol)
-Leo (our last name is a two-syllable "L" name, would Leo sound funny?)
-Zeb (i think it's super cute, but i'm not confident enough about it yet)
If it's a girl, my husband REALLY prefers "cutesy" names and our top girl names (for reference) would be:
-Penelope (nn Poppy or Polly)
-Tess (although hubby isn't a fan, and we don't like Tessa. Could Tess be used as a nn for Elizabeth?)
-Lucy was my husbands #1 choice until his brother gave the name to his daughter...
-Betsy (but hubs doesnt like this one either...)
What are other names that i haven't thought of? My only requirement is that we choose a name that no one we know goes by... AND just as a quick sidenot: Neither of us knew any Sofi's or Eli's when we named our first two kids... But then, maybe we just dont get out enough... LOL.
