Hi guys!!

My wife and i are expecting our first child - we are super, super excited! My wife is 33 weeks now so getting to the "business end" of the pregnancy.

... however, we are really struggling with names. We've got the girls name covered, however struggling to chose between:

Oliver Jeffrey Dalton

Harrison Luke Dalton

what do you guys think sounds and works better?

can you offer any suggestion for an alternative middle name to Luke?


Thanks everyone! original.gif

Congratulations!

Oliver and Harrison are both great. I prefer Oliver to Harrison but I prefer the combo Harrison Luke to Oliver Jeffrey. I also think Oliver sound better with your surname.

What about Oliver Harrison? Or Harrison Oliver?

I prefer Oliver. I like Harry, don't like Harrison.

I love both.  do you mind Harry as a shortened name as that is what people will probably call him, even if you dont

I am putting in a vote for Luke Harrison Dalton. Luke Dalton is such a strong name!

If only between Oliver & Harrison, I'd go with Harrison -- because the nn Harry is so cool.

I'm not a big fan of Oliver.

Oliver Luke would mean his initials were OLD.

I really like Oliver as a first name and maybe James as a middle name.

Good luck.

we love Luke as well, but we've got a friend who named their son Lucas, feels a bit too close LOL at least for the first name

I like both Harrison and Oliver, I think Oliver Dalton sounds better than Harrison Dalton but by no means does it sound bad.
I'd pick Oliver Luke Dalton.

good luck!

I loooove Henry Dalton. Such a strong name!

#20 BlueUnicorn

Henry Dalton is an awesome name. I like Luke and Jeffery, Harrison is okay but Oliver is nms.  Nn Harry is also great for Henry, so I wouldn't use Harrison.

Henry Dalton for the win. That sounds terrific.

Henry Thomas works fine but I'd prefer:

Henry Luke
Henry Lucas
Henry Michael
