I have been looking at your blog and I love all of the advice and options you provide for your followers. My husband and I are expecting our second baby around November 22, 2010. We have a 14 month old daughter whose name is Maggie Suzanne. Our family is blended in that I am Caucasian and my husband is Hispanic so we have beautiful dark headed babies with big brown eyes and the best tan. So we are almost decided on the first name for our baby boy being Oscar, but we are stuck on a middle name. The other first name that was a major contender was Oliver, but I feel like it is becoming very popular. I have always had an original name that no one else had and I loved it. I would like my kids to have the same kind of name. Some middle names we like are Alexander (me) and Mateo ( my husband). Other names we have discussed are Andy, Sammy, Felix, Max. I guess my only thoughts are the first name needs to be 2 syllables and I want to name him what I will call him. I am not a big fan of relying on nicknames.
I am looking forward to reading your thoughts!
Ooo, I like Oscar Mateo Perez AND Oscar Alexander Perez---I can't decide! I also like the way the names Andy and Sammy go with the name Maggie, but overall I prefer Oscar. My top favorite from all your contenders is Felix, and I like it with either Mateo or Alexander.
Another I like for you is Hugo. Like Oscar and Felix, it's uncommon but not difficult. I like Hugo Alexander Perez.
Another is Aidric, maybe Aidric Mateo.
Another is Rufus. I like either Rufus Mateo or Rufus Alexander, maybe a slight preference for Rufus Alexander.
If you're flexible on the number of syllables, I also like Gideon.
Name update! Joy writes:
I am a little behind, but I wanted to send an update on our precious baby boy. He was born October 28th and weighed 7lbs 11oz. He was a little early, but was perfect! Everyone is so in love with him including his big sister Maggie. We really appreciated everyone's advice and yours as well. We were able to add to our list and come up with name combinations we hadn't thought of. In the end when we met our little man we both knew Oscar Alexander just fit him perfectly. He is just over two months now and every day I love his name (and him of course) a little more than the day before.
Thanks again for all of the name help! We will save them in case we have another boy in the future.
