Baby Name Help

Trying to decide between first name of Maxwell (Max), Asher or Grant

Middle and would be Ewing.

Last name Somers.

Brothers are Landon and Conner.

I prefer Maxwell, then Asher.  Grant is too harsh for me and I don't like surnames as first names.

With brothers named Landon and Connor, I would go Maxwell. It's different in sound, but similar in style, while standing it's ground and not being matchy-matchy. It also sounds very handsome with Ewing. Grant is great too, doesn't flow super well with the middle IMO. Asher is very handsome, but somewhat different from the others. However, that may not be a concern. Whatever you choose will be great!

Grant would be my first choice, I like how it sounds with your older boys names and the flow with the middle name.

Maxwell would be my second choice; I actually prefer Maxwell to just Max, especially with the older two having longer names, which is why I put it second-if you were planning on using the full name as the call name that would bump it into first for me. 

Personally I don't like the repeated -er endings of Conner and Asher, and I find that Asher Ewing flows least well when I say them aloud. Of course both those things are very subjective so if neither of them bother you it's not a big deal.

Honestly I like them all. I would say, in order of personal preference: Maxwell, Grant, then Asher. I don't think there are any negatives with any of them, though. Do you have any front-runners or preferences yourself? Any that are ties to family names?

Given that Ewing is the middle name rather than the last, I would definitely avoid Grant.  Three surnames in a row sound more like a law firm than a person!

I like Grant best. Yes, Grant Ewing Somers is three surnames in a row, but the middle name wouldn't be used on a daily basis.

Max Somers is a little hard to say and Asher Somers repeats the -er of Conner and the -ers of Somers, so it's the least distinct. (I like when each boy has his own name beginning and ending sounds.)

If Maxwell were going to be the call name, it would be my favourite, but I like Grant better than Max.


(By the way, as a moderator I deleted your second post since it asked the identical question to this post and it's best to keep a question contained within one thread. I did, however, add the surname information that you included there to this post.)
