Third Boy Naming Conundrum
As we stare down the barrel of our third son, my husband and I find it progressively more difficult to name our boys. Our first son's name was predetermined to be Jack (family name) and it suits him perfectly! His middle name is Henry which I also love (and wish I had saved for a later child). Fast forward three years to baby boy #2. Hubby and I could agree on NOTHING! I had my heart set on calling him Drew and hubby hated it so we compromised on Andrew which quickly became another favorite. Obviously I prefer traditional, classic names with the most common spellings. Our last name starts with a J, is one syllable and extremely common. This time around I'd love to use my maiden name, Hartley, and call the baby Hart. Hubby has vetoed that suggestion repeatedly. His picks are Harrison (my objection is trendiness, lack of significance, and the possibility he'd be called Harry), Luke (lots of friends recently naming baby Luke), Liam, and George. Family names we wouldn't be opposed to using include Charles and Michael. Any suggestions, ideas, etc. Are greatly appreciated!
