I'm curious, does it go with a middle name? If it does, you may have to say it out loud with each name and see if it comes out smooth, this way, when your son grows up, he doesn't feel conscious of his name. They all sound good to me, so whatever you both decide is up to the two of you! lol How about Kyle??

I really like Cole. But Ford is a really original name. Whatever you choose, keep in mind that he will have to live with the name forever. So it has to be fitting for a baby...but also one that carries him well into adulthood and a career. Also, you might want to wait until he is borm to decide...when you see him for the first time you'll know whether he is a Cole or a Ford...or a Hank. Keep us posted....

I think they are all good names.My husband and i couldnt agree on our sons name either.We decided to compromise use one name for the first name and use another for the middle name.good luck and congrats to the both of you.

Ford is definitely my favourite out of them, Cole is too popular which is apparent by the response you are getting. Ford is unique and unusual without been silly and there won't be 5 little fords in his class at school.

Why not use one you like with one he likes. one first name and one the middle. Regardless in the end it will not matter you guys will just love your son. Good luck with everything

I like Cole, Hank then Ford, but I will echo everyone else...what goes best with the middle name. When I named my oldest Chance, we picked Ryan for his middle name. If he hated Chance, then he could go by Ryan or C. Ryan Davis. He loves his name.

I really like the name Cole, however Ford isn't bad either. But out of those three, I think I would go with Cole. As someone else said, it kind of depends on the middle name it is going with and how smooth does it sound when you yell it or want to use them together to express yourself in a stern manner! LOL!

Cole and Ford sound cool...Hank makes me think of some guy out of Thelma and Louise.

Wow, it looks like Cole is the popular choice. Maybe I'm the odd one out, as I tend to like classic names and then I guess what other people might define as odd or unique names. Anyway, out of these three I think Hank is adorable! But, all three are really cute. If Hank sounds good with your last name, I think it's the best! Good luck!

My favorite of the three is..........Cole, but what about putting the two names you picked together as a first and middle name? My brother had a little boy and him and his wife couldn't agree on the name so they gave him two middle names, that way he has both.

well one thing to remember is to make sure the first letter of each name (first,middle and sir)do not spell out anything. my own oppinion i like cole the best but you could always pinch my baby boys name leland it gets lots of attention as it is very rare in the uk good luck i wish you all the best jenny xxxx

Hank is the best of the 3...getting to be too many "Coles" nowadays, and Ford is name for automobiles

Ford with an cool middle name like McKinley (my grandaddys middle name). Though, Ford is a somewhat failing auto maker he might not take kindly to having that name attached to him, but I like it because it's off beat, but not hard to say or spell. Also check to see what rhymes with the names Hankey-Pankey or just Hankey alone. Ford, Bored. Think of your child being teased as he like everyone has or will be teased about something. Good luck

Cole is the one that will probably get the least amount of teasing. Ford is a vehicle and hank is a drunk country singers name.

hmm i think Hank should be totally out of the question, makes me think of jim carey in me, myself, and irene, or an old trucker (no offense to truckers) lol. I like Cole because it's different yet very cute! Ford can grow on me but if u name him that u cant ever get a Ford truck and neither can he when he grows up lol. Also depends on middle and last name, im sure u guys will make the right choice tho, good luck :-)

I like Cole better, but go with what your heart is telling you. When you see him for the first time you'll know.

[deleted account]

Just be sure it is a name that will not cause other kids to tease him. Ford might be risky. When you see him, you will know what name will suit him. We had picked Emily for our daughter, but when we saw her, we named her Renee. Best wishes.

Cole means coal or dark one (not that nice!!), Ford means river crossing and Hank means God is gracious. I think on that basis Ford or Hank are much nicer - I personally think Hank is a GREAT name!! Have you reached a decision yet?
