Name for a Little Gentleman
Hello naming enthusiasts!
My husband and I are expecting a boy and I'm so excited to pick a name! I've been reading the forums for years and finally have a reason to post. We have plenty of time (and I've had a name list for years) but I'd love some advice. We both have similar tastes in names, preferring more the more old-time, gentlemanly side of masculine. We'd prefer unpopular yet familar names. Our last name is Kline, which can be difficult to pair names with because it's so short and clipped sounding. The middle name will most likely be James, a family name on both sides.
I find boys names to be more difficult than girls names, so I'd love some suggestions, advice, and/or impressions regarding our list.
Our current short list:
Arthur- my longtime favorite, but my husband's brother, who he is not close to, named his dog this and it put him off the name a bit. Is this an issue? I still love the name.
Sebastian- possibly my husband's favorite. I like it, though I don't love it's popularity.
Albert- a longtime favorite
Alistair- another longtime favorite
Henry- lovely name, even more popular than Sebastian.
Lawrence- I love this, but hesitate to use it due to similar names in the family.
