MrsMeowton : I do like Harrison. It has been on our list before and I forgot to put it in my original post. I just don’t love the nickname of “Harry” and I’m not sure how to discourage that from happening.
hikingbride : Liam is a great name, but my husband’s cousin (who he is super close with) had a baby name Liam just 3 months after our son, so it feels like we shouldn’t use it. Plus I’m not sure about the “m” sound at the end with our last name.
Thank you for all your suggestions! I think Spencer has been added to the first name possibilities at this point. It’s in consideration with Fletcher and Cooper, Declan is pulling ahead a little and Micah and Cade are dropping as of right now. (I’m still keeping my eyes and ears open for other names that spark my interest.

Choreographer82 : Darling Husband and I absolutely hate the nickname Harry. We know most people will try and use it as his nickname, but we plan on calling him Harrison full-time. I had initially, in an attempt to get Darling Husband to like the name more, suggested the nickname “Hank”, but because it isn’t an intuitive nickname, I’m wary of using it.
Best way to deter a nickname? Aggressively correct people. The first person who tries to call Harrison “Harry” will be corrected vehemently. My friends and family will respect that we want him to be called Harrison and as far as others, typically, once you correct someone they should get the hang of it.

My friend’s surname is Moore and they recently had a little boy called William Edward. They were thinking James Ashton Thomas as well.
my little boy is James Thomas. If he gets a little brother I like Robin Francis

Choreographer82 : A lot of these names were on my list too! I had the same feelings about Harrison – liked it, but not Harry. We also had Cooper, Spencer, Griffin, Max, Wesley, and Simon, and we ended up naming our little boy Simon Max. I like Spencer and Cooper the best with your last name! Good luck!

Micah Spencer Moore
Declan Spencer Moore
Levi Spencer Moore
My choices, in order of preference. Cooper Spencer and Fletcher Spencer feel a little too rhymy-cutesy for me, but either one with Levi or something else as a middle name could work because I like both first names with Moore as a last name. I loooooove Micah, all the heart eyes.

brlabrat : Micah Spencer was my first thought, too.

I really like the name Carter as first name for a boy. Carter Moore I love but not liking Carter Spencer Moore quite as much. Almost sounds like a law firm. 🙈 As you can see I’m not much help but I wish you luck. 😄

I think a name ending in -tt would contrast nicely with the sibling’s name and middle and last name he’s getting.
Like Elliott, Emmett, Everett, Garrett, Wyatt, etc.

If you like Cade, what about McCade? I have a student named that and he’s such a cool kid. I like it because you know how to spell it but no one else has that name. It’s very unique.

Choreographer82 : I love Micah and Declan is great as well.
Fletcher sound’s like a dog’s name to me.
I’m a teacher and Cade is a notoriously “naughty” name. Every Cade I have tought has been awful. Please don’t go with Caiden or Jayden. Too many of them.
Cooper is all right, but everyone wil call him ‘coop’ and that just reminds me of chickens!
That’s my somewhat weird 2 cents. 🙂

Completely partial here because I have a 5 month old named Cooper. We do call him Coop and I never really thought of the chicken association but now I totally will 🙂

I have a colleague with a Gavin and his other boys are named Luke and Connor. I always thought it was a nice combination Fwiw.
I also knew a Spencer – that totally works as a first name. Of the ones on your list declan is by far my fave. I’m not really a fan of the others.
