In Response to More nn help

I have to agree with many above - I also like the name Chester, but seriously, please reconsider. The "molester" association is still very strong, and your son will not thank you.

In Response to August is here!

Congratulations! We have a baby boy August too, so far no one has shortened his name except for my mom (to Augie, which, ugh). The only odd things people have said is asking if he was born in August. Well, the funny part was they were asking when he was clearly a newborn...in May. Uh...no?

Gaaaaah. I hated my trendy name as a kid, so I treasured my offbeat name choice, Archer, until I had a chance to use it in 2010. I still love the name, and it suits him, but how annoying that the name I picked out years ago is trendy!

For our first kid, we picked a name that very shortly afterward began to sharply rise in popularity. If I had known that we might have gone with our #2 choice, Adlai. Still really like that name. #2 kid had a last-minute pre-birth name change, and no regrets about that - he is 100% indisputably an August. It suits him up and down. The one thing I regret (aside from accidentally picking a trendy name)  is that their names don't go together well.

Roland, to me, is extremely old-fashioned - medieval, actually. I put it in the same category as a name like Bayard. That's not to say I don't like it - it was one of the names I floated for the second kid, I really loved it but my husband didn't - but if you aren't into the old-fashioned thing it's worth thinking about.

I don't really like Westley, it's just Wesley (which, ugh!) with a superfluous letter. I would go with West, which is another name that I really, really love (top choice for me, but again, husband hated it).
