    I don’t know why but when I read your title “Carter” popped into my head.

    @PixelMePretty:  What is a drop away name?

    I thought of “James” right away but I’m not sure how it goes if your last name starts with a J… Leland James I like the sound of though!

    I like Colby the best, but I think Sawyer sounds the best with Calvin!

    I think Colby and Oliver sound the best, just with syllables and consonant sounds.  Colton sounds too much like Jackson, and Chase just doesn’t flow for me.

    Definitely Oliver. The repeated “l” sound in each of the names makes it flow really nicely. I thought Colby was your next best option, but frankly, I don’t like the name. And when you mentioned the drop-away name, it would be two “C”s in a row and I think that makes it sound too harsh. Leland Oliver Jackson is a great name for a little boy.

    Is a drop away name the child’s last name?

    I thought Paul before I read your post. I think it should be single syllable to flow right, so I voted Chase.
