I'm having another boy, lol. I'm glad I didn't get rid of all my baby boy clothes. Now I'm stuck with a conundrum. What should I name my third son? I have no ideas. My first two are Aidan and Ethan and I'm trying to avoid another rhyming boy name as they get their names confused enough as it is. The only ideas I have are Boyd, Bryant, Kevin and Cameron, but I'm just not sure if I like these or not. I had a girl name all picked out that I was in love with too, lol. I guess I'm just not destined to have any daughter. If I had a girl I would have named her McKayla Ann after a combination of her grandmothers. I don't like any of the grandfathers names so I can't use them for inspiration.

I like Wesley, reminds me of star trek, lol, but I still like the name. Don't know if SO will go for it. Hmmm....what would be a good middle name for that...

Those aren't bad, can't use Matthew as that's my first boys middle name (Aidan Matthew) it's a nice name too. I was thinking maybe Wesley Bryant, do you think that would be too much?

It doesn't sound terrible but I would probably do Brian instead.
Wesley Brian sounds nice.

On my dad's side it would be Flynn, that wouldn't be too bad, but my mom's side would be Boyington, that would not work. :P

Daddy's name is Brian and he is quite dead set against giving our kids his name (other than the last name), probably because he was named after his dad and his grandpa. I thought I might be able to get away with Bryant as it's close but not exactly the same.

He nixed bryant, he said,"like coby bryant" with a grimace, lol. I don't know celebrity/sports names so it didn't even occur to me. He was "okay" with Wesley though.

Hmmm I am hoping for a boy, my family has been besieged with nothing but girls.
I wish I could help with a name but either my choice are too exotic or soooo old fashion :roll: I think my S/O is just saying that because he wants a Jr.

I know many people do it but I just can't name my child jr., lol. For me it seems to diminish the apparent worth of a person, saying they are smaller or less than the original. I know it's a rather silly way to view it, it's just a way of saying "son of" but that is just how it comes across to me. :P I'm glad SO doesn't want a jr.
