Austin Sterling Helm ❤
Thank you all for your help!
Thank you! :-)
Its actually Tamara :-)
The only alternative I found that I liked for Austin Sterling Helm A.S.H
Is Austin Jericho Helm A.J.H it doesn't have the star meaning but means moon which is equally as awesome and still a connection to me. Also Austin Nova Helm A.N.H could work.
My number one name pick was Parker before baby was born and would have been his name if he didn't come out so bloated from my having gestational diabetes... so Austin Parker Helm A.P.H could work.
The only alternative I found is Jericho... meaning moon, or Nova.
Austin Jericho Helm gives us AJ
Austin Nova Helm
Austin Sterling Helm
Austin Parker Helm - loses the name tie but it's the name I originally picked
You have all been helpful in my process of choosing a name for my son. It has come down to Austin Sterling Helm or Parker Bennett Helm. After many of you having issues with name choices like Archer and Hunter with my surname I am now not sure about Sterling for a middle name. The intention was to have a tie to my name... middle name Starr... but Austin Sterling Helm = Austin Silver Helmet? Bahhh. I can't find another that sounds as good. Now it's making me lean more towards Parker. We have to turn in our paperwork today. What do you think... should it not bother me?
This may pop up as a separate thread later because I tried posting it as a new post but was having captcha issues and it was flagged for the moderator. I just have little time so am not waiting.
I've been practicing both names and have warmed up to Austin quite a bit... if I pick this name I'd insist on one of these two middle names. I can't think of any others that have as much meaning to me. The meaning of Bodhi is profound and one meaning of Sterling is star which is my middle name.
Austin Bodhi Helm
For Bennett I like Atticus as a middle name but would also consider Frost. Forrester or River which all make me feel good.
I'm deciding today because tomorrow we file for the birth certificate. Hit me with your favorite based on the sound of the name.

Bennett Atticus Helm
Middle names are open for suggestions
My husband opened it back up and asked for my top 5. Help me narrow my list down. Some of these are too popular and I dont like that but do like the names.
My other kids are Devin 14yo and Miller 2yo
I'm not in love with Austin... it feels like settling. Do you really think people think helmet when they hear Helm? I've never had anyone comment on my last name. We chose Austin but I'm not happy... I can always go back to Parker. I liked that Archer had Archie as a nickname.
What about Archer Helm? Not sure on middle name.
Devin, Miller & Archer (Archie)
Both were eliminated. We are deciding tomorrow.... Parker, Austin, Henry or Camden.
Well... my MIL didn't come to our wedding and has not visited. They live in FL and claim it's too long of a flight. Considering she has met neither grandson (Her only grandchildren) I don't feel like we need to take her issue with any name into consideration. My guess is that it will end up Austin or Parker.
Hendrik was my attempt to get Henry back on the list. It was taken off because my mother in law said no to it.... apparently it was her first husband's middle name. It also was the most popular name on our list so I thought Hendrik could work and I can call him Henry. I think I'll just leave the option as Henry Helm. Maybe Henry Parker Helm or Henry Blake Helm. We are going to try each of the last 4 names out for a day then decide. What do you think of the middle name options? Any ideas?
Henry Parker Helm
Henry Blake Helm
Parker Bennett Helm
Parker Sterling Helm
Austin Sterling. Helm
Camden River Helm
Miller is a nickname for my second son as his first name is Millard. I agreed to carrying on the family name as my husband is the 4th. I chose Miller as his nickname. So using another er ending name is ok in my view... we would likely call Fletcher Fletch and Parker Parks as nicknames.
I like quite a few of the other names you suggested but my husband cut them from the list. We are currently down to only a few...
