I know, I’ve posted a few of these names multiple times. I just really like to get feedback and reactions from you ladies, plus maybe inspire a few people looking for unusual names.
Note to keep in mind – if the spelling seems weird to you, that’s because we live in Albania. We’ve chosen names that phonetically work in Albanian. Our kids will spend most of their lives in Albania and Kosovo, so the spellings will actually help them.
The names in the poll are our top contenders (the ones that hubby and I actually agree on), but there are a few other names we like as well, so let us know what you think of these too.
Liam, Silas, Boyd, Gideon, Bowen, Ryatt, Asher, Avi, Holden, Soren, Miles.

Kalan was the first one I really liked from your list but I really like Brennen too.

Asher is my favorite–I’m not a fan of any of the poll names. Miles and Boyd are nice names, too.

do any of the middle names have any family/friend significance??? i always thought that was the point to middle names, to have a connection between the child and someone close or memorable to the parents/child

Tristan sounds really preppy to me and also sounds like trickster, so not my favorite.
I read a book once with a girl named Kalan, so not really liking that for a boy.
Of the poll choices my favorite is Orin Reid, but I also really like Silas.

I know it is winning in the poll right now, but I have to say the Tristan Knox is no good to me. I just do not like it.

Avi and Miles are my favorite.

@kala_way: The Sword of Truth novels? I think that was Kahlan.
ETA: Orin is my favorite, too. 🙂

@Mrs. Spring: yuppers
Though Orin reminds me of Ayn Rand (though that one is spelled differently as well–Orren I believe), but you get to a point where if you read a lot every name reminds you of some book.

Rohan is pronouced in the gaelic way, by the way. Like Rowan.

You’ve got some really cool ideas! TBH, most of the time I hate name threads… they’re filled with either super unoriginal or super obnoxiously weird names. But I love the ones you listed!
Of the poll choices, I liked Rohan and Orin best, followed by Brennan, although I gotta say I’m not a fan of “Leigh.” He’ll just get made fun of with that spelling… imho. But with the masculine version of the name (“Lee”), I think it’s an awesome combo.

I think we’re gonna change that up to Gideon Lane and Kalan Danger.
