My husband Finn and I have 3 boys, ages 8, 5, and 3. We've finally agreed that we're ready for number 4 so we're currently in the process of trying. This isn't a final attempt at a girl or anything; at this point I'm not sure what I'd even do if we don't have another boy! This forum helped us choose our youngest son's name so I'm back to pick your brains!
My name is Austin and my husband is Finn. Our sons are named:
Atticus Luca (goes by Ace the majority of the time but prefers Atticus at school)
Malakai Solomon (never intended to nickname him but Kai is what I almost always end up calling him)
Isaias Everett (typically goes by Ike; I wasn't sold on the nickname at first but it was the only way I could get my hubby to even entertain Isaias as a name and now Ike is just SO HIM)
Three pregnancies so far and we have never concretely agreed on a girl name, so I suppose it's good we have boys! Naming Atticus was a cinch. We had the whole thing, nickname included, before he was even conceived. Kai was harder. Finn loved it and Kai was easy for our then two-year-old to say, but it took us awhile to get to that consensus. By the time we had Ike we had it down between Isaias and Elias but as soon as I saw him at birth I knew Isaias was right.
If we happen to have our 4th boy, I go back and forth whether or not I want to avoid a name that ends in S, but I do know I want something that can easily be shortened to an easy nickname. I can't get Elias out of my head but I feel it's too close to Isaias now. Finn likes Augustus, which I could get behind but I want some different options.
For girls, blahhh...if Ike had been a girl he probably would've been Genevieve. I don't hate that name but it would've been a pretty big compromise. Names I'm kicking around are Felicity, Scarlett, Gianna...maybe?
Any suggestions or thoughts? And good vibes would be appreciated; another week before I can test!
