Ok…lots of options since I last asked for opinions, but here I am unable to narrow down name choices at all. I decided I don’t even care about how it sounds with the middle name, because at this point I really just wish I could pick something. DH and I have agreed that we both like all of the names in the poll, and we’re currently trying out “Micah” for the week to see how it feels…then I was thinking this morning, my SIL’s daughter is named Myla…is that weirdly similar to Micah? Or does it really not matter?
I’d say our our top choices right now are Micah and Luke…DH really likes Caleb, but I’m iffy about it, plus it’s one of my bosses’ son’s names. All comments are welcome, even if you hate the names 🙂

I like Micah and Caleb. Micah was on my list when I was having my son but I was worried it sounded feminine? IDK but I do like it a lot and nope I don’t think it’s too close to Myla 🙂
FWIW we are having #2 and if it’s a boy we are naming him Elijah (Eli), so I think I like the same sounding names as you 🙂

can you narrow it down to 2 or 3 that you are your husband really like. then wait for your son to be born and see which name suits him best?
also, i only know male micah’s about 3 of them. i never thought it was a girls name.

Yea, I think I’d feel fine having 2 names and then once he actually arrives picking. Part of me likes the idea of just committing early because DH and I would like to be able to start talking about the baby using his real name (we won’t be sharing it with anyone else though)…at the same time, I kind of like keeping my options wide open.
I know what you mean about the feminine aspect of it since it ends with that “ah” sound we usually see with girl names. Doesn’t bother me though, and I mentioned it to DH and he felt like it wasn’t too feminine.

Micah but i’m partial because its a character in a book series I love.

I love the name Owen! Booking it for my own future child 😉 Micah is cute too, but it reminds me of an ex, so I am a bit biased against it.
Not related to this post at all….but everytime I see you post something (and the photo) I can’t help but crack up and read it in a Steve Buscemi voice. #sorrynotsorry

I love the name Micah. I can’t use it because I have an ex with that name and it would be weird. Lol. My husband and I love the name Caleb, though, and plan on using it. Very good names on your list.

These names aren’t really my taste but between the two favorites, I prefer Luke. And no, I don’t think having a cousin with a similar(-ish) name should be a deterrent at all. I also wouldn’t base your decision on your boss’s son’s name, as I’m betting your child will have very limited lifetime interaction with that person.

I know one Micah, and it’s a girl. we call her Mickey though.
I love the name Emmett, but I am partial because that’s the boy name we have picked out 🙂

While I tend to be a fan of non-traditional names, every time I hear the name Caleb, I just love it. I think it’s on the less common side, and it just sounds nice to say, somehow.
I like Elias, too. People will definitely call him Eli, which I think is cute as a diminuative.
Micah leaves me pretty cold. And everyone will call him Mike or Mikey, which would drive me bonkers.

We were going to name our baby Levi if it was a boy. We had a girl, but I still love the name.

Micah is my step brother’s name, and I don’t really like him so I’m iffy on that one lol. I do think its a nice name otherwise, but beware it is a traditional Hebrew name. Seems like its rising in popularity and being used for girls, so maybe people don’t care about the origin or religious aspect. I like Luke, but would you name him Lucas and Luke would be the nickname?
