You’ll probably look at him and say, how he looks like a Luke!  (Or whatever name you think of that day.)

 

Ideas:

Jack (we only have met one other Jack here)

Samuel (Sam)

Charles (Charlie)

Oliver

Matthew

Thomas

 

Actually, this list from an American website always intrigues me:  http://www.ssa.gov/oact/babynames/ You can see the top 1000 names from last year.

What about calling him Graham so it is still in memory of a family member? Other suggestions: Henry or Harrison? I tend to like more traditional names but not sure if they are “old fashioned”: Matthew, Michael, Steven, Alexander, Joshua, Ryan, Thomas and Patrick. Good luck and like MapleBecky said, I’m sure you will look at him and be able to better give him a well suited name!

I like Jared and Ian and also Brad and Andrew. Not too trendy or old fashioned, but I like them.

As pp stated, when you look at your  baby  you will just know what to name him! I  LOVE the name Owen!! My favorite all time boys name is Austin. Some people have a name picked out for a year and then when they see their baby for the first time they feel like it just doesn’t fit him or her and decide on something at  the hospital… dont worry, you’ll figure it out 🙂

Try this website: http://www.behindthename.com/top/

You can search for the top names from many countries, and from decades past – try US names from 1920-30 for example for some old fashioned goodies.

My grandpa’s middle name is Emmett- so I am partial to that.  If this baby (due Aug. 20th) was a boy we were going to name him Beckett.  You can use it if you like! 🙂

My friends just named their baby Calvin.  I think it’s cute!  Also, another set of friends named their baby Liam.  Also cute!

We ended up picking ours from a movie. Rent some old movies and have fun! We decided on Westley from the Princess Bride. My first son was named Darian after a TV show. I know I am real imaginative….lol.

Wesley

Luke

William

Jesse (we can’t name our son that– boo!)

Robert

Henry (we can’t name our son this one either. double boo!)

James

Michael

Thomas

Samuel

…. But I think Charles Graham is an excellent name. You can still name him that and call him by his middle name.

@StormyRose: My mom came up with my name after seeing it on an actress on CHIPs… Princess Bride is a WAY better source for a name! (BTW: I love my name… just think the story behind it is the sort of thing that makes you say..  “Really mom? From CHIPs?”)

I was gonna vote Oliver.  Ollie is so cute!

Theodore

Louis

Phillip

These are all the old fashioned and classic guy names I could come up with that haven’t already been said.  Boy names are hard!

Elliot (my current favorite)

Griffin

Gabriel

Quincy

Jasper

Sebastian

Jonas

Dexter

I do like the idea of just using Graham as his first name. Have you guys considered that?
