Opinions on these names and suggestions
My husband and I have been tentively playing around with boy names. Im a nameophile and its something to chat about when we are driving or waiting at a resturant together. We are planning on adding to our family within the year and we have our girl name picked out already since our son was a surprise baby so we are saving the girl name we picked out before but need a boy name now to fill the slot.
Our two year old son is named Drake Jonathan which is a name I vastly adore and find it hard to top or match. Jonathan is a fmaily name, my husband's uncle who passed away right before Drake was born, and most likely a second son will have the middle name William after my husband's father and grandfather. I like names that are different but not unheard of and if possible have a literary connection as I love to read (Drake is another name for dragon which comes from legends and books etc...see loose tie but I love it still)
Our last name ends with er and thus my husband has ruled out all er names like Asher, Jasper, Xavier, etc. Other names I like, Kellan and Griffin, cant be used too for random reasons.
So the name I recently really liked is Cody. My husband doesnt like it. He says it doesnt go well with Drake, its too kiddish of a name and not a man's name, and he feels in time it will turn into a girls name. Does anyone else agree with my husband? I do want a masculine name since I feel Drake is quite masculine and so I dont love the idea of Cody migrating to the girl side in my son's lifetime. Does anyone think this might happen? It does have a ee/y ending sound like many girl names.
The name my husband is really pushing is Rex. He thinks it sounds nice with Drake, both short one syllable names, and is very masculine. I hear a dog when I hear the name. Am I the only one who thinks dog?
Any other name suggestions for us, lvoe to hear them!
