We have picked Cole, Ford, or Hank! I really like one, but my husband is set on the others! I wanted to get an idea of which one is better with out telling you which one I like vs. my husbands' opinion. Thanks!

I like the name ford, it is a somewhat one of a kind name, how many boys named ford will be in your sons class, unlike cole

I like Ford...Its different, Hank is hillbilly(nothing wrong with that) and Cole is a VERY common name!

I love the name Cole. We actually already used it on a dog that we got a few years ago. Now we wish that we had saved it for our first boy's name. Good luck with your decision!

Without meaning to...I would guess you like Cole best because you listed it first. I have to go with Cole myself. He'll get teased too much about Ford(car references and Hank is kind of "tough guy" but if he ever has to go into a job interview for a job as V.P. of a big company, will they take him seriously? I vote Cole.

i like ford, i agree with the others, it needs to sound smooth off the tongue though. Is the surname to be east? Hank east doesn't sound as good as the others.

As a teacher, I can tell you that Cole has become somewhat popular, which is evident here with all of the votes for that name. I've had a few "Cole's" over the last several years. However, I've never had a "Ford." It's unusual without being weird. I like that one! Good luck!

I like Hank - it's a strong name, and Cole is just too popular these days. Not a fan of Ford, as I associate that with the car manufacturer, or a surname rather than a first name.

Seems like the popular choice is Cole which I will have to agree about! Hank is cute but I know a dog named Hank so that kind of ruins is for me haha. Good luck! :]

I really like the name Ford.It is different. I can honestly say I don't know anyone with that name. I also like Cole too.

I like Hank, Cole is a very cute name but if you look how many Cole's there are right now, too many! Goodluck and congrats :)

I love Cole! That was a name that I had chosen if my hubby and I had a boy, but my hubby shot it down... Good thing we had 3 girls! :)



Anyway, I think Cole is a great name! Do you kow what the middle name would be yet? I like Cole Alexander (which was what I wanted!)

I really like Kelsey's reply about looking at your family tree. There are a lot of unique names that were used in the past and have faded out. You could also combine the names like someone else pointed out. My ex husband and I named our daughter after comic book characters (we were young parents...lol) so we have an Ivy Quinn but we went through hundreds of names before we picked something and it really wasn't a final decision until she was born. Just remember that whatever you name him he will have that name his entire life. All that said I like Ford.

I personally like Cole, but then maybe because I have a son named Colby and his nickname from his grandparents is Cole!

Good luck choosing!! It's a difficult but permanent decision..:)

I like Cole out of all the names. If your husband likes Ford try Cole Ford? or whatever use the name you like for the first name and his choice for the middle name. Thats how my husband and I named our daughter Haylen Paige. If we were to of had a boy it would've been Tavyn Scott or Dylan Scott. (Scott is my husbands middle name). If you're still having trouble look into you and your husband family tree and see if you find anything you like

I like Cole best. Maybe have one of the ones you don't pick as a first name as the middle name. Which do you think goes best with your last name, say it out, spell it out etc?

Also, my son's name is Daniel. If I had it my way we would have named him either Hayden or Bryson. So it's totally up to you. But I do like the name Cole a whole lot

My oldest son is named Hank. It is a good strong name and not over used. He is the only Hank in his high school class of over 1000.

I like Hank as Henry and then shortened to Hank! It's classic and strong! Cole is a nice name also but there are so many of them! Good luck! There are all nice names really! =)
