I need another boys name
I have three children, an Ivy, an Arthur and a Peter. We are currently expecting our fourth, and if it is a girl, we have a long list of lovely names to choose from. If it is a BOY, we have nothing. My husband and I don't so much see eye to eye on boys names, and at this point, I kind of feel like we've named ourselves into a corner when it comes to boys. Both Peter and Arthur seem to have these great legendary king associations for many people, and they are both names that are everywhere in the culture, but not that commonly used for actual children anymore. Can you think of a third name that fits this mold? I'd like a name that's well-known and full of positive associations.
Our last name is problematic. It begins with the letter N, so a lot of names that end in N sound silly with it. It is also a bit of a first name, so names that sound too last-namey are out.
Thanks for your help. This is indeed a thorny problem, but I've been lurking on this forum for a while, and I am very impressed at how thoughtful and tasteful your collective namng choices are.
