So we just found out today that the baby is a boy. Wooo. 🙂 Unfortunatly, we haven’t been able to agree on a single boy name so far. Darling Husband loves the name “Desmond.” I did, too, but not for my baby – if that makes any sense at all o.O But now it’s sort of grown on me – but I’m still hesitant. Anyone we’ve mentioned it to hates it.
We’re also sort of ambivalent on “Jack.”
And that’s it. That’s all we have so far. So which one, Bees? I’m also open to suggestions of other names (ohgodpleasegivememorenames). If it helps, we’re settled on the middle name being “Michael” and our last name is two syllables. 😀

Desmond seems more feminine to me for some reason. Jack isn’t bad though…

I like Jack. It’s a strong, classic name that will never be trendy or out of style. I also don’t think it’s SO common that he’ll be with 10 other Jacks.

@Jw1724: I agree – I thought Desmond sounded more like a girl’s name..

Jack is my #1 boy’s name. I love that its simple and will suit a baby upright up to an old man. I can’t picture a baby Desmond at all 🙁

@futuremrsk18: Huh, that’s weird – I’ve never heard of Desmond being a girls name and it surely doesn’t strike me as feminine XD Hm. When Darling Husband first suggested it, I was like, “Like Desmond from Lost??”
@lilbluebird: I was thinking the same thing – those are both very good reasonings 😀

I instantly thought Desmond Miles (Assassin’s Creed) and Jack Sparrow.
The names themselves aren’t too bad. I’m pretty neutral on them, to be honest. I don’t dislike them, but I wouldn’t pick them for my own kids.

I know a Desmond who’s a man. I’ve never heard it as a female name.
You said you’re set on Michael as a middle name, but I just wanted to pitch Jack Desmond (mostly because I think “J.D.” is a cool nickname, lol).

@mepayne: haha, I thought of that Demond & Jack, too. 😛
@Regina Phalange: Yeah, I’ve never, either. I also think Desmond Tutu. I never thought about Jack Desmond – I’ll pitch that to him 😛

Don’t settle on a name! Keep searching until you find something you both love.
Have you ever tried baby name genie?? Google it! You can do up a baby name poll on there, too, and people can vote.
What about… Logan, Dawson, Sebastian, Benjamin??

@PiggehBank: lol I was like yes! Desmond from Lost!
We named our daughter Penny…sooo… 🙂
I think you can better than Jack, if you don’t like Desmond. What about Clayton, Aaron, Keane, Kieran, Alan, Flynn, or Carson?

@Regina Phalange: +1 I like that the best!

I like Jack better than Desmond, but if you just found out, give it some time to come up with other names.

@PiggehBank: Hm. I actually know 2 Desmonds. Both female haha. Maybe I’m the weird one.
