Brother for Eli & Maya?

Eli is short for Elijah. Our last name is 2 syllables, starts with Moe.

I kinda like River, Theodore (Theo) & Tobin (Toby). My husband likes Brody & Travis. We both kind of like Desmond (Dezi), Rider, Cody, Trevor. But nothing is really exciting us. Help please! Thanks.

The thing that stood out to me is how many T-names are on the lists, and also that you seem to like nicknames.

So, here are a few ideas:

Tristan (Tris)

Tobias (Toby)

Torsten (Tor)

Tycho (Ty)

Tyler (Ty)

Tamerlane (Tam)

Some ideas:

Tiernan, Eamon, Brenden, Keegan, Garrett (Rhett), Bryson (Bryce), Tristan, Thaddeus (Tad), Thane (could also be short for Nathaniel or Nathan), Tucker (Tuck), Titus (Ty), Ethan (could also be Thane), Brooks, Hudson

There are a lot of T names on my post! But no preference there. I like Tobias- hubby says no.

From the 2nd list, I like Eamon, Garrett, Ethan & Hudson. We both like Bryson, but hubby is Brian and this could be confusing.

My husband has updated his name choices- Grayson & Clayton are on his list. Desmond & Brody are off. He also likes Joshua & Jason. I like Jace, but have a friend w/ a son w/this name. He also likes Ian, but its too close to Eli in sound. We both agree on liking Jacob, but don't want something too popular. Eli was named at the beginning of the trend, before we realized how popular it was going to be.

If it helps with name ideas, Lucy & Emily are girl names I like & hubby has not objected to.

Your suggestions all have a kind of preppy college kid vibe to me, probably because I knew a Cody and a Travis in college. :-)  Cyrus and Drew were friends in that same group. The others are just names I like that seem like to have the same vibe, to me.

Yes, I think I do like preppy kid names and my husband likes simple. I'll run the list by him to see if it inspires. I decided I really liked Cyrus after going through a baby book last week before realizing it is in my consciousness b/c of Miley. I still like how the long I sound works with my kids' names and fluidness of Cyrus. Hubby said no again though.

I also like hippie/ nature inspired names. We live in a hippie town and it would not be out of the ordinary here, but I also don't want to limit the little guy.

If you like Cyrus but don't like the Miley connection, Silas has a similar sound. Also, Kyros is the Greek root for Cyrus.



I'm not certain if it is pronounced kire-ros like fire, or keer-ros, like deer.
