PLEASE, I REPEAT, PLEASE don't give him some crazy made up name with letters that don't belong and then say the letter is silent...you know what I mean ; ). You don't want to set him up for life with a crazy name. Just remember the name is going to be on job, college applications; not to mention his teachers trying to spell it

Lacota Ryan is my son. (Lacota is normally spelled Lakota and is pronounced like Dakota but with an L. It's native american for friend. Ryan means king).
Other names we thought about but either didn't like the meanings or how common they were were Lawson, Landen, Levi, Mathew, Gabriel, Nathaniel.

I noticed that you posted your request for names on July 5th which is my birthday and at 6:37 pm which is the time my son was born....so it must be some type of fate or destiny to LOVE my son's name as much as us.....GAVIN.
Not only do we love it, but at 15 years old, a day has rarely gone by when someone doesn't tell us/him how much they like his name. By the way, it means "great white hawk."
Good luck with making a decision....you'll know when the right name comes along!

I have moved from the UK to the US and I have 2 sons, my oldest is George (meaning Farmer) he is very laid back and my youngest is Finley (meaning Warrior) he is very happy and always on the go. We have been here for 15 months and have not come across either name yet, even at their school. I know George is used here in the US but we get a lot of comments on how people love Finley's name, so if you want to go for something different, Finley would be a name to choose. Good luck and all the best.

This is what I think you should do we did it with both of our kids. It was fun and it gets everyone that you want involved. My husband and I picked ten names that we liked both first and middle, out of those names we had friends and family vote on the one they liked the best. I know this isn't what you were asking for, but it's somthing to consider if your having troubles finding a name. Our daughter, we waited till she was born to name her the name was out of the top five that we liked from the 10 that were voted on. I wish you luck it's hard to come up with the perfect name for your child.
My vote is Ricardo.

I let my daughter pick out this ones name, Julien Thomas. But other names that were considered before I had found out she was a girl, and before deciding to let her pick this baby's name, were Tristen, Sage, Xander, Xavier, and Keegan

Christopher, Johnathon, Christian, Anthonie/Anthony, Shawn/Sean/Shaun r a few i could think of off the top but ur best bet might b 2 invest in a baby name book where u can find out the meanings and origin of the name. I think the library also has baby name books.

Just don't name him something that has started to be used for girls or in the future it will seem like he has a female name. Like, Stacy, Jamie, Kendall, Riley, and Avery used to be male names. I love the name Jarvis. It's the computer's name on Iron Man and I have a friend that her brother's name is Jarvis.

Well, I'm partial to Biblical names. My son is Jacob Anthony. I almost named him Noah, though. Others I considered were Bryce, Jaden and Riley. As I was thinking about it, I realized I wanted a name he could grow old with. For me, I didnt a cutesy name that wouldnt be so cute at age 60. I also considered what kids might nickname him. Or how they would shorten it. Since I chose Jacob, I thought it was a strong name as a 60 yr old man and I thought Jake was a nice name if he shortened it and a name he could grow with. We call him Jacob, but people are already starting to call him Jake, and he is 7 now. I hope this helps and I'm sure you will pick a great name!
