I will just tell you that I know 3 people who just had babies with the first name william, it’s also my nephew’s middle name.  I think it’s making a comeback 🙂

I don’t think William is odd at all!  I also wouldn’t hesitate to use Benjamin if you aren’t seeing the baby often.  As long as it’s not a sibling’s kids name I think you’re fine.

@mBride2011: is a great site! So is 

I think you have some great starts. I ended up with a few criteria which really helped narrow down names. Here they are:

1. Must be easy to say and spell. No “unique” spellings. No name that he would have to explain the correct spelling. I have a name that I must alway qualify- with a K not a C, with an E, etc. We loved Reid and were close to choosing that until we got stuck on the spelling- Reid or Reed. I nixed it. 

2. Must sound professional. Some people don’t care about this, but we are both career minded and wanted a name that could nicely follow “The Honorable…”

3. Must not be in the Top 100/150 of the Social Security name database (this was a great resource also). 

4. Can not start with the same letter as last name. 

As long as I stuck closely to those rules it was easy to rule names out. We have an awesome name picked out for our guy- now just have to meet him!!!

My brother’s name is Kieran and I think it’s the best name of all time.
