Baby Name Update

I know some of you are probably tired of hearing about my problems choosing a name for the baby, but I have received several emails asking how we were doing with it picking one out.

First of all, if you can't tell, I have a problem with making decisions. I am what you would call a researcher and have to know everything there is before I can make up my mind. It took me 3-4 months to choose which camera I wanted, so choosing a baby name is super hard for me! I know the poor kid will be stuck with it forever and I want to still like it after he gets here!

With our first son, I used family names and knew that I was going to name my son that since I was in middle school. It would make it easier if Hubby wanted to have a junior, but he's not interested in using his name at all.

Last time I posted, we were thinking of using the name Grayson. I still like it, but Hubby isn't a huge fan.

NOW, here is the list we've made after looking through FOUR baby name books. You would think we should have a bunch, but it's not that many!

Tell me which ones you like or if there is something else that isn't on here that you think would be a good fit! The more suggestions, the better!!

For first names we like(when I say we, one of us usually likes it more than the other):
-Weston
-Tanner
-Grayson
-Connor

HAHA..I KNOW...pathetic huh? Only 3 out of 4 baby name books. But looking through those is so hard because it is overwhelming!

For middle names(in no specific order with no specific first name in mind):
-Matthew
-Zachary
-Graham
-Andrew(hubby's name but he could care less about using it)

I feel like I'm leaving one off, but I think that is it.

I think my BIGGEST problem is that I have a HUGE family and can't see using so many great names that are out there because I would associate it with SOMEONE in my family or that I know.

OK, so what do you think? Any other ideas? Do you like any combinations of our first and middle name lists? Pin It!

Grayson Andrew,
or Connor but I cant choose a middle name for that one though I really like it.

CaseyDeuce said...

I really like Connor Matthew or Connar Zachary but Grayson Matthew would probably be my favorite combination!

Kelli said...

I LOVE Tanner!! It is really cute, and not as popular as Grayson and Conner. I think Tanner Matthew would be really cute!
I had a REALLY hard time picking a name for our third boy...I had a ton of girl names, so coming up with another boy name was hard! I actually used an a website, and went through and pick one name for every letter of the alphabet. It was a good way to make myself think about names that we hadn't considered before.

I wanted the name Connor too, but my hubby (also named Andrew!) didn't like it at all.

Connor Matthew sounds really nice.

I love the middle name Matthew (my middle son's middle name)...
I was thinking Tanner Matthew too!

I kinda like Grayson Graham but since your hubby's not too keen on Grayson...

It's hard to really say without the last name too...have to say it a few times to see if it 'flows'.

I like Connor, but I'm not sure about a middle name, I think any of the ones you listed would work.

The Dreamer said...

I liked Grayson too, but hubby didn't. I think Grayson Zachary is nice. I like Weston too though.

good luck deciding...it was hard for us to agree. :)

OGLADI said...

Tanner Graham fo' sho'.

Natalie said...

I'm partial to Andrew for any name b/c that's my oldest son's name. It's one of my favorites.
I also love the name Parker or Carter.

Jennifer said...

Wishing you and your husband the best of luck in choosing a name. The perfect one will click with both of you. When we lived in Wyoming, the list of 4 you gave were very popular boy names. :) Granted I have not lived in Wyoming for almost 7 years now and I have no idea what the trends are. I look forward to hearing what you and your husband decide to name your son.

I like Grayson Andrew or Connor Graham

Weston Matthew sounds wonderful!! I really like Grayson and Tanner as well.

Becky said...

I love Grayson Andrew. LOVE IT! Of course you knew I would pick Grayson for sure LOL.

Ann On and On... said...

What a hard decision! I wish you luck and look forward to your "final answer".

I like Grayson Matthew or Andrew

Stephanie said...

Hey! I love Weston Andrew. I have a nephew named Grayson. I think its a good name but I think it would be better for a girl, because I often call him Grace which makes my sister mad. I might even spell it Gracyn if it was a girl. Anyway, check out this webpage, it'll help you set up a poll!

Choosing names is so tough! Tanner jumped right out at me, with Matthew, that is my brothers name. Good luck!

Cat@3KidsandUs said...

You wanna know what worked for us?

Hubby and I each made a private list of names, as many as we could think of we loved, then we put them together and narrowed the list down to names we BOTH wrote down. With that, we just drew one out of a hat. Try not to think too hard on it, names always have a way of fitting.

I like grayson mathew

I like Grayson Zachary.

LStewart said...

I like Weston Zachary. With both daughter's pregnancies we've had a pretty easy time coming up with girls names and gave very little thought to boys names until about their 20th week when we found out they were having boys! Coming up with boy's names was difficult in both cases.

Julie said...

We actually considered Connor for both boys & we almost named Tyler Zachary. I love the meaning of Matthew & considered it for a middle name as well. Good luck! Hope you're feeling better!

targetmom said...

My BIL's name is Andrew too and like your hubby wasn't set on a jr. SIL settled on Drew.

Good luck. Boy names are the hardest!

Cindy B. of Montana said...

I like Grayson Andrew...great combination.

I have grandsons named Legend Luke and Lennox Albert Joseph (2 middle names there). Legend picked out the name Lennox! Legend was a name that my daughter-in-law had wanted to name a boy since she was a kid!

Maggie said...

I'm going through this now too, except with girl's names. It's such a personal choice, that it's hard to make suggestions. I like the names you have and I'm sure whatever you choose will turn out to be perfect. It nearly always does.

MaggieM said...

Grayson sounds to much like Tarzan to me. I don't like Tanner, sounds like a tennis instructor for "older" women. I do like: Connor Andrew. I think your husband's name should be the child's middle name. And Connor, well that's a very safe name. Good luck. I named my son Michael Shane Mannwieler. Michael after my brother, Shane, just because I liked it, but he never uses it.

I looked your first names up on ssa.gov/babynames, and was surprised, I thought Connor was more popular than it is (I dislike names that are too trendy)! I think Connor Matthew is my favorite, though Weston Andrew has a great ring to it as well! It is a hard call, good luck, and let us know if you are able to narrow it down any further!

Leland's Mama said...

I really like Weston Graham. It has a nice ring. Or Greyson Zachary.
