Darling Husband and I are doing fertility testing to prep for IUI/IVF and the only thing keep us (me) same and positive is thinking about baby names. I posted some ideas last week but I think we have it narrowed down to our two favorites. Which would you pick? Darling Husband loves them both. Last name is 3 syllables. We are going for the 2-1-3 syllable pattern.
Jesse Wolf (or Wolfe?)
Finley James (Finn)

I like the name, but all the Finleys I know are girls.

You want Wolf as a second or possible first name? I like it! I like atypical names. I’m also considering Stark for a boy’s first name.
I LOVE Finn, but I agree with the PP: All the Finleys I know are either female or it’s a last name.

I really like Jesse but don’t like the other three names. Jesse wolf makes me think of the big bad woof

eeniebeans : WesterosBarbie : interesting! I never thought it was a primarily girls name (I don’t actually know anyone named Finley). Thanks for the heads up! I just looked on name berry and this is what it said:
This was a 100 percent male name until celebs Jason Sehorn and Angie Harmon bestowed it on their daughter, recently followed by Lisa Marie Presley, who used it for one of her (female) twins. Now there are two girls named Finley for every boy. Finlay is also popular. Can Finleigh be far behind?

hollyberry4 : I’m not crazy about Wolf as a middle name. I have a cousin named Finley and he’s a boy. I’ve never heard of it as a girls name.

citysparkle : yeah we are really struggling with a single syllable middle name for Jesse. Definitely open to suggestions. And I’m glad I’m not the only one who only thought of Finley as a boy’s name. Thanks!

I love Jesse, not a fan of Wolf at all. So I guess I’d pick Finley James. But if you could come up with a better middle name for Jesse I’d pick Jesse over Finley.
Maybe Quinn as a middle name with Jesse?

hollyberry4 : I actually really like Finley James. Other single syllable names for Jesse- Reid, Pierce, Dean?

Finley is too feminine. I would opt for Finn.
Not a fan of Jesse at all.

hollyberry4 : I like Jesse Wolf, I would spell it Wolfe, do you have connection to General Wolfe? I ask because that would make the middle name make sense, and I have a connection to him… so that would be cool! Haha.

hollyberry4 : I couldn’t vote as I’m not crazy about either. I really like Jesse, but don’t like Wolf as a middle name. James is a great middle name, but Finley sounds feminine and perhaps a bit pretentious. Good luck!
