My boys names are Jordan Paul James Storm and Isaac Jack Paolo River. We wanted unusual but not weird and by putting the more unusual name in the middle they can choose whether or not to use it. Jordan has recently become known as Storm to his friends because it is "cool" but when he is older and wants a job he might be pleased to have a more normal first name. Bear in mind people do judge someone when they hear a name.

I always lean toward more old-fashioned names. Ones that aren't real common or overly used right now, but still not so "out there" that you (or your child) will regret it later on. Look back in your (and your husband's) family trees and see if there are some cool old names on there - maybe a great, great uncle!

I have always liked the name Oren. My hubby's name is James so our first son was named after him and his dad who is deceased. But we had decided that if we had another son we would name him Oren Lee, but we had a little girl so we named her Erin Rose. I also like the name Rory for a boy!! Good luck, it's always tough to pick out a good name!!

My son is Xzavier. (keeping the z). You could take your husband's father's first and middle names and your father's middle and first names and combine them...lay out the letter and see what you come up with. I tried that...combined Patrick with Hubert and got Berrick, but my husband didn't go for it.

It's not as unusual as it was 11 years ago but our son's name is Greyson and I love it. I get lots of comments of it being unique. I call him Grey which is very masculine so it should do well as he ages. I've even had a friend name her baby Greyson after my son :>)

my hubby and I had a hard time thinking of a name for our 6th child, a friend of ours gave us the name of his son-- Jad-- Arabic for Jade but a male version of the name, we really liked it, had never heard it b4, its not too outlandish but definately different

why not try and combine family names? After someplace special to u and you husband? I chose to name my son after his father(this was way back in my Senior year in H.S that was decided i would) but it worked out cus i like the name. if your religious how about a name in the Bible

I have four boys and thwir names are Connor Ashton, Logan Blair, Wesley Triston, and Cooper Angelo.
My husband and I usually pick five names we each like and then switch our list and cross out the ones we don't like and then just keep crossing out and until we get to two. We each take our list back and dicide which ones we would love over the others and we always get great names.

I like Easton as well and Weston. Bently, Jarrett and Garrett are names I've always liked too. My niece used the first initial of her husband, her's and their sons names for their daughters middle name, Jae. So that might be an idea for making your own name.

My son's name is Alexander, but he goes by Xander. A little twist on the traditional. I was looking for something unique but have a traditional streak as well. Give him options as well as he grows. Alex, Alec, Xander, Alexander, Lex....just not Al:) Good luck.

something that is meaningful to you. I named my son Lewis, which is my maiden name. There were no boys in my family to carry on the name, and my dad's only brother passed away when he was only a teenager. I also like it because, while it is not an uncommon name, it's also not one you hear on every second kid
