Baby Nameless any day!
Almost 39 weeks with a surprise. We made shortlists, but I find myself second guessing all the entries. Last name is 9 letters, starts with S, has only 1 vowel and many harsh k/v sounds. To go with the last name, we are thinking shorter >longer, common/familiar>unique. Family names marked with an *. Especially having a problem finding a distinctive, not trendy boy name, that he wouldn't have to spell all the time.
M@rgaret--great nicknames (Maisie, Greta, etc!!), but will people be able to spell it?
Ad@--love the nod to strong STEM women, but too trendy with all the Adalynn/Adaline action? Would it be another source of teasing if she were disabled (Americans with Disabilities Act)?
L0uisa*--both sides of the family name! But the one on his side dislikes it.
Theodora--probably too long/heavy (I also like Theodore!)
Ev@nder--longtime favorite of mine for the meaning and classical reference, but may be too connected to the boxer?
Ch@rles*--love Charlie, greatly dislike (up)Chuck. Too much like the rising Charlotte? Would the 's' ending get lost with an S- surname?
W@lden*--too uncommon/surnamey with our last name?
Arthur--Art is OK, dislike Artie. Is the aardvark TV show still popular?
Willi@m--lost in a sea of Liams?
Thanks for the help!
