I did a poll a few weeks ago with baby boy names, and as we’ve talked DH has decided that most of them are a no-go. He’s really set on the name Lance. I like the name and think it’s unique without being too out there, but I don’t know if I’m sold. We have a very common last name, so need something that’s pretty low on the popularity list (my husband has a common first name and went to highschool with two other boys with the exact same first and last name as him, so I don’t want that to happen to our son!). What does the Bee think?

DZMeadowz: While it may not be the highest on the popularity list, I don’t know that I’d call Lance “unique” or uncommon. However, I do like the name and think it sounds a lot nicer than what a lot of mom’s are calling their poor children these days.
Edit: What are you thinking for the middle name? That may help decide how well the name Lance flows.

mdcmod: I agree that it’s not really unique, just not a name that’s commonly used these days. I hate names that are “made up” names, so don’t want to be unique in that regard!
For a middle name I am thinking Douglas (after my dad and grandfather), Colby (another family name), or Jameson (just a name I like).

DZMeadowz: I think any of those would sound nice!
Totally get what you’re saying on the “made up” names- I’m the same way!

The priest that’s marrying us is named Lance and he is the sweetest. Positive name recognition for me!

Lance Colby sounds good together I think 🙂

I like Lance. I think it is a very nice name. I have known a couple and they were both really nice guys. For the middle I like Colby and Douglas because they are family names.

While it is not my favorite- you could certianly do a lot worse 🙂 I like Lance Douglas.

I don’t hate it, but it makes me think of Lance Armstrong which isn’t the best correlation personally… But it’s not bad by any means.

I like it! I know a kid (well, mid-twenties) guy names Lance, very happy and positive guy.

I can only think of Lance Bass from NSYNC. I agree with PPs, though – Lance is a perfectly respectable, positive/neutral name choice.

Very nice name. It goes with either Colby or Jameson. I particularly like Jameson for a middle name.

WithTheMostess: same lol. Aside from visualizing Lance Bass when I hear that name, I think it’s an okay name 🙂
