Ha! Your timing is so funny.... I had "him" yesterday and "he" is still NAMELESS!!!!! Any suggestions? :) Our current list includes Andrew, Reid, and Benjamin but DH and I can't agree on anything. We'd love some help!! We leave the hospital tomorrow and would like to have a name by then but we're not required to have one until Sat. Thanks!
So I haven't FINISHED-finished this post, it's still in draft form and I haven't double-checked all the names to make sure they fit the requirements, but I'm going to post it right away because I want us to help name this baby as soon as possible!
We are in desperate need of naming help for our second son. It has been a tough pregnancy and I've been on bedrest since week 17 - now at week 36 we have finally hit our goal and are allowing ourselves to begin naming our son. I could go into labor at any time and since we didn't feel comfortable discussing names until we knew for sure this pregnancy would turn out ok, we are just now realizing we can't agree on ANY names!!! Our first son is named Parker and our last name is Snow. We do not want a first name beginning with P (my husband's name starts w/ a P and that is confusing enough for some people!), and since "Snow" actually means something, we don't want a first name that has meaning too (example: Tanner) or anything that is cutesy or sounds like a sentence (example: Landon Snow!) We also do not want a first name that ends in S as we feel it is too "hissy" (example: ThomasSnow, JamesSnow). No names ending in an "o" sound - it just sounds silly w/ our last name (example: Milo Snow, Leo Snow). No traditionally boys names that girls are taking over (Elliott, Morgan) or too-trendy names (Cayden/Jayden/Hayden/Aiden). My thought is we need a first name with at least 2 syllables since our last name is so short and kind of harsh... but maybe I'm wrong? Would love to hear your thoughts! Last restriction is my own weird one: I would prefer a non "er" ending name as I feel having a Parker and an Archer or Asher is too similar in structure. I am soooo picky with names and am driving my husband CRAZY!!! I'm not into creative spellings or "unique" names, but on the other hand my husband will not go for anything too common (John, Matthew, Ryan, etc). The ONLY 2 names we are considering is Andrew (my fave, but too common for my husband), and Barrett (his first pick, I'm not crazy about it). I am so worried that I will have this baby and we won't have picked out a name in time!! To sum it up - no "er," no "P," no "s ending," no "o ending," no names the girls are taking, no too-trendy, probably two syllables, and something uncommon but not weird. Thank you all so much in advance!!
I'll use this as an opportunity to push an unusual and underused name: Karl. Karl Snow. Parker and Karl. That's my favorite.
If the more Z-like S-sound of Charles doesn't bother you as much with Snow, or if you didn't mind going straight to Charlie without using Charles, I'd suggest Charlie. Charlie Snow, Parker and Charlie. Jazz fans may think of Charlie Parker; most people will just think the names go perfectly together and not know quite why.
If Andrew is too common for your husband, maybe Anderson? Anderson Snow, Parker and Anderson.
And I know you say not Elliot, but OH I love Elliot, and it's so dashing with your surname: Elliot Snow, Parker and Elliot. I know some girls are using it, but I think it's still Boy.
Or if not Elliot, maybe Everett? I don't think the girls have gotten to that one yet. Everett Snow, Parker and Everett.
Some other possibilities:
Adrian Snow; Parker and Adrian
Brady Snow; Parker and Brady
Brenden Snow; Parker and Brenden
Evan Snow; Parker and Evan
Gabriel Snow; Parker and Gabriel
Gavin Snow; Parker and Gavin
Henry Snow; Parker and Henry
Keegan Snow; Parker and Keegan
Kyle Snow; Parker and Kyle
Larson Snow; Parker and Larson
Marshall Snow; Parker and Marshall
Mason Snow; Parker and Mason
Ridley Snow; Parker and Ridley
Ruben Snow; Parker and Ruben
Wesley Snow; Parker and Wesley
Wilson Snow; Parker and Wilson
P.S. Karl! Karl Snow! Baby Karl! Parker and his little brother Karl!
