1st I love Carter and Grayson, those were on my top list! I know, I know that doesn’t help.

What about Jackson? I know it’s somewhat being over played right now, but I think it goes well with your last name and that middle name. Other than that, I can’t think of anything. Maybe go through a list of boys names and pick a few and create a poll? Good luck!! Can’t wait to hear what you choose! X

Call me crazy, but I would never call Carter, Grayson, Anderson, Jackson, etc. “traditional” names. To me, those are “last-names-used-as-first-names,” which I am all in favor of if it’s a family name or has a direct personal connection to the parents – then I can understand calling them somewhat traditional. If not, then they strike me as being firmly in the “trendy” camp.

Anyhow, if you like them, that’s your call. If you guys really do like traditional names, Daniel Keith Carroll sprang to my mind. Daniel is a great traditional name, with a nice nickname automatically included.

Benjamin, Jacob, Derrick, Daniel

Benjamin easily shortens to Ben or as I affectionatly call my DS “Jamin” (like jamming) It also shortens to Benny, which I am NOT so fond of.

Jacob (my other son) shortens to Jake pretty easily.

Derrick..well, that’s just classical, and doesn’t really shorten.

Daniel – Dan…also a good name.

our names are clark and reid. i don’t personally love clark with your last name though. clark keith carroll isn’t great. but reid is nice! i think it’s a strong name that won’t get mispronounced and sounds good with your last name!

i think william would be nice too. it’s common, i know. but will carroll sounds good!

@StaceyA: Darn! *snaps fingers* All these cute pups taking all our cute baby names! 😉 After thinking about Carter, not sure how well Carter Keith Carroll goes together. It might be a bit of a tongue twister for the little guy?

And LOVE Anderson! That’s my #1! 🙂 Oh lil Andy – Eeep! Too bad hubby hates it and has vetoed me. But I WILL WIN, YES I WILL! Bahahhahhahaaaa.

Sounds like we have similar tastes when it comes to names.

Other name I like, but might be too trendy, are: Ryland, Branson, Corbin – those are all on my list as well.

If you’ve got a surname style preference, something like Hudson might work.
