    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 πŸ™

    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).

    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… πŸ™‚

    I think you can better than Jack, if you don’t like Desmond.  What about Clayton, Aaron, Keane, Kieran, Alan, Flynn, or Carson?

    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.
