It's a boy!!!! Help me put together a list!
So, we just found out today that the baby is, without a doubt, a boy! Let the naming begin!!!!! I think and hope DH will let the name conversations start in earnest now. I want to feel like we've explored a lot of names, and would like to suggest some new options to DH if possible.
The two more solid combinations that are on the table are:
Simon Xavier (DH reacts negatively to Simon, saying it's nerdy, but I don't know how much of that is just to tease me. He says we can keep it on the list for now.)
Xavier Camille (The only combo we can agree on so far. Camille, as mentioned previously, is a pretty important family name for him.)
Another name we both like is Everett. I suppose Everett Xavier could work fine, but I'm not convinced about Everett Camille
What I like about Simon is that it's simple, serious, and strong. I think the simplicity and strength of it goes well with the more flowery last name. I also think the ON combo works well with the ON sound in the last name. I suggested Eamon to DH as an alternative, but he just made a derisive noise. Any other ideas up this alley?
Like many people, we're looking for a less than trendy boy's name that's still strong and not too odd. I mentioned Elliot, Oliver, and August to DH and all got nixed. Frankly, DH would be thrilled with something like Jack, but I'm trying to steer us a little more towards the bookish end of the spectrum...at least a little more thoughful.
Thanks in advance!
