-single syllable names, but names we can shorten work too.
-non-exotic (no justineal-llo or shufunkwas)
-something that goes with Matthew being the first name, and him going by his middle name...but we're not opposed to other ideas as well.
-names with great meaning or after great men
-old school names (you know---like Claire is an old school name)
we don't like:
-names with a past ("i knew a kid with that name and he used to put boggers in my hair!"---we won't be using those ;)
-if someone in the family already has the name that is within two generations, we probably won't use it. ie---my FAV name is Daniel, but he has an Uncle Daniel.
Some ideas we have:
I love the idea my brother Tim had: Gideon is a family name, but they would call him Eon (Ian). I think that's AWESOME! Nick does not agree.
I love the name Jacob and call him Jake, but Nick doesn't like Jacob.
Nick loves Taylor, but I don't love that it is a unisex name and more popularly a girl name, right now.
Just not sold on it yet.
We are LOST! We have so many ideas, but none both of us agree on. Help us!
