Baby Boy #2

I am due in March with baby #2. We just found it's a boy. My oldest is Owen James. I'm looking for any ideas for a little brother for Owen. The only name we sorta like at this point is Desmond, but we have no middle name ideas. Thanks for any suggestions!

If you like Desmond, how about Declan?

Maybe Parker or Beckett? Ian could also be a good balance to Owen.

Are any of those on the right track?

As for middle names, are there any people you want to honor, or names from your family trees?

Declan is a really good suggestion! It sounds great with Owen.

Ooh, I like Desmond. Don't hear that one much, and it has the same kind of vibe as Owen. Very nice name; I'd put it on my list if it wouldn't just be weird to give an Irish name in as un-Irish a family as mine.

For a middle name, maybe another very traditional short boy's name like James, especially if you have any specific namesakes to go with? I tend to think of middle names as a place to put (a) alternative names in case your kid hates his first name and (b) people, either relatives or famous namesakes, whom you want to honor.

Did you decide?
