    I think it’s totally dependant on the name itself. If it can stand alone and is a nice name, I’m a-okay with it… If it’s like… “Bobson”… not my fave.

    Can you tell us the name or no? If not I understand! But that would help me form an opinion.

    I don’t hate it in theory though!

    Personally I’m not a fan. I like a whole new name for the baby tho. there are lots of names out there- keep looking! Have you tried

    This is actually the way that a lot of surnames were created- for example David Richardson = David, son of Richard.

    I think it would entirely depend on what the name was that you were affixing -son too but it could work very well.

    @MrsRugbee:  do you have criteria? What are they? Maybe starting with specific likes/dislikes will help. I had a very specific list:

    1. Nothing in top 100 or 150

    2. Nothing that sounds made up. 

    3. Easily spelled- no “Kristen with a k and and an e”

    4. Sounds like he could run a bank, school or country. 

    Obviously this is my criteria, but maybe figuring out what you do/don’t like will help!

    @MrsRugbee:  I voted awful idea, but I’m on the fence. I’m a big proponent of giving a child a name that is all their own. Middle names are a great spot for a family name, but I would never want to be directly named after a close family member, so I wouldn’t do that to my child.

    However, if you really cannot agree on any other name, what choice do you have? You have to select something that you both love and are comfortable with.

    This is wholly dependent on the name you are adding “son” to. I really looooooove Bobson hahaha

    I agree it’s dependent on the exact name. I kind of like Anderson and Ericson, but not Richardson. Does the name in question have common nicknames for it? Ie instead of Richardson, could you use Rick/Rich?

    @MrsRugbee:  Uh I think this would only work with a few names, my DH’s name is Ryan and Ryanson sounds Japanese which we are not.

    I guess John’son’ or Ander’son’ sound okaaaay….
