Hey everyone! My husband and I found out a week ago that we're having a boy! We already had a girl's name all picked out, but now we have been struggling to come up with boys' names. I love my husband, but I feel like his taste in names is kind of horrible. He really wants to use a family name, but the names in his family are weird. (I am NOT kidding when I say that his current favorite name is Bascum. Or Bascom? I don't even know how it's spelled because it's NOT an option!) He also likes Romulus... NOT my style at all.
Anyway, there are just a FEW names that we have been able to SOMEWHAT agree upon, so wanted to see what you guys think.... Feel free to give feedback, I'm looking for honest opinions!
The middle names are completely still up for discussion and interchangeable. They are all family names. We would really like to use Richard for the middle name because it's the name of both my father and my FIL.... but it doesn't sound great with everything.
Thanks for your feedback!
Since it seems like Richard has a special meaning as a mn, I think the following would flow well:
I think Nathaniel Richard is my favorite.
I love Nathaniel, and I think it goes well with Richard, Collins, or Ross.
I like the name Noah best and would do Noah Richard, so you can still honor your father and FIL
1. I think we might be married to the brothers. Bascom and Romulus are tame compared to the ridiculousness my husband threw at me.
2. Owen Richard is really nice.
