    He doesn't like the initials. :roll: It really wasn’t in the running, only in my heart. Cooper was our backup but I didn’t like it cause I still have the car.

    @CoolWife Do you have ant specific parameters or just what feels right? Husbands be picky. A wouldn’t let me use Graham because of our last name and a joke he always got growing up.

    I'm not sure why he doesn't like the N - just doesn't sound right. But the obvious ones like B and H... I get.

    They are so far ridiculous and meritless. Today he suggested Sonic because baby boy is the size of a baby hedgehog.
    Honestly we haven’t worked on it much, now that we can narrow it down to boy-appropriate names we will. We should have a little time.

    M was always a contender as a boy's name in our house, and we basically just defaulted to it when we found & out we were having a second boy.

    Not sure if you all mulled around another name you really liked the first time around?

    Also, just throwing it out here, because I have some serious fucking name envy surrounding this name because I think it would've been A+ with G's name & wish I would've thought of it -- but it would also go well with your C's name & good with your last... Crew.

    I like M better than Crew!

    There really wasn’t another strong contender. He thought Cooper but I wasn’t going to let that happen.

    God, I didn’t even think of it like that. Yeah, they can get the fuck over it.

    @CoolWife lolllll Sonic. You should go along with it. I bet he comes up with some legit suggestions real quick.

    I just feel like people will wonder if you named him after this board after everyone inevitably starts calling him Coop :lol:

    If he's gonna suggest Sonic then you should just suggest Hobbes and really lean into a theme.

    Would you consider another C name?

    Cole
    Clayton (idk why but I am REALLY into this one)
    I also feel like similar vibe to your current C could be
    Grant
    Warren
    Spencer
    Wesley

    For some reason I really like Grant, Spencer, and Warren for you.

    Miles is my favorite boy name but N hates it because of our last name (which also starts with M and is one syllable). There are zero boy names we both like. There really aren’t even any either of us individually more than kind of like. Also we both love L’s name so much I feel like there’s added pressure to choose an equally great name for the next kid haha.

    Exact story of our baby names @Kimmers We settled on D's name, and it's fine. I really loved Wyatt, but hated it with our last name. I was recently talking to J about names just for fun and mentioned D could have been a good Derek and suddently J was ok with it, like "ohh, yeah! That would have been good!" Except he hard vetoed it during the naming process :wall:Shoulda just named them without his input.

    Same. We have another favorite girl’s name but nothing for boys. We don’t even agree on styles much.

    Just be comforted that at the end of the day, once you have 2+ kids and even one pet in the house, no one is getting called the right name, ever.
