Although I am completely, 100% thrilled to be having a baby boy (found out Thursday!), I was way more prepared to name a baby girl… I had plenty of adorable names that DH and I both liked. But with baby boy comes baby boy names, and I want input (we’re keeping the name secret IRL, so I need input from the internet–If I’m making any terrible mistakes, I want someone to tell me!).
Last name ends with an “er” sound.

Congratulations on finding out the gender!
I like Grant or Lennox best out of those.
Grant is very distinguished and academic sounding. Lennox is unusual but not crazy – I picture him as an artist or a musician. Knox is a really cool nickname.

I’d probably go for Pierce because of the family connection, or have it as a middle name at the very least. They all sound very manly to me, so I’m not in love with any of them but Rykan is really unique and Knox a wicked nickname!

I think Grant is the best choice in your list.

Love Lennox, it’s on our list of future names!

I like Grant. It’s the most “normal” sounding to me, but still not super popular. I think it’s a good, strong name.

Lennox and Rykan sound odd to me but I’m not a native english speaker.

@ladyartichoke: We will use a family name for the middle name for sure, although we have a couple choices based on what we do with the first name.
Thanks everyone for the input–I’m very interested in getting some feedback, my worst fear is naming my child something and having everyone point out something about it I didn’t notice.

LOVE Grant! It is my number 1 baby boy name at this point (and our last name also ends in “-er”).

I voted for Pierce and Lennox (Knox is great!).
Grant and Hale just don’t do anything for me, but they’re not common around here and the only Grant I know has semi ruined the name, lol.
Rykan I’ve never heard of. How is it pronounced? Ry-can (like Ryan), RyKAN, Rickan? Totally new to me, but it’s not one of those names I make a face at, it’s just something I’ve never come across.

@indibee: Like Ryan with a ‘k’ in the middle, but it’s good to know that it can be read different ways.
