At 31 weeks we know our new bubba will be a boy and are struggling with names.

Our DD is 2.5 named Lauren

We like names that are "normal" and not too out there, with common spellings. But also nowhere near the top of popular lists

Surname is F#s*er - like holiday village on NSW coast.

A list of names i like:

Kayden/Hayden
Declan
Damien
Brady/Brody/Bradley
Bailey
Jordan/Julian/Jeremy
Dylan
Blake
Ethan/Evan
Travis
Cameron


Ideas, Thoughts other suggestions all happily accepted lol biggrin.gif

I really like the name Lauren, FWIW! My favourites from your list are Julian and Cameron, I would possibly try to avoid an 'n' ending but it's obviously what you both like.

Jeremy, while not one of my favourites, sounds good with Lauren. Ditto for Brady, Brody and Travis.

Other ideas:

Henry
Marcus
Callum
Patrick
Edward

Kayden/Hayden - really dislike
Declan - nice
Damien - ok
Brady/Brody/Bradley - really dislike
Bailey - ok but it doesn't seem like the type of name that would suit a grown up
Jordan/Julian/Jeremy - all nice
Dylan - lovely
Blake - great
Ethan/Evan - both nice
Travis - nms
Cameron - nice

My favourites are Blake, Julian and Cameron and I think Blake would be the best with Lauren because of the two -n endings.

Other ideas:
Luke
Max
Benjamin
Edward
Samuel
Jude
Jacob
Ryan
Christopher
Felix
Joshua
Harry
Isaac
Alexander

Kayden/Hayden- Kayden is ok, Hayden is good
Declan- lovely
Damien- lovely
Brady/Brody/Bradley- love Brady, the other two are both ok
Bailey- ok
Jordan/Julian/Jeremy- Jordan is fine, Julian is lovely, I dislike Jeremy
Dylan- lovely
Blake- lovely
Ethan/Evan- love Ethan, not so keen on Evan
Travis- ok
Cameron- nice

With Lauren I would probably go for Declan, Julian, Blake or Ethan. You've got lots of nice ones though.


Suggestions:
Lauren and Andrew
Lauren and Jacob
Lauren and Isaac
Lauren and Oliver
Lauren and Alexander
Lauren and Mitchell
Lauren and Eamon
Lauren and Connor
Lauren and Oscar
Lauren and Noah
Lauren and Thomas
Lauren and Timothy
Lauren and Miles
Lauren and Darcy
Lauren and Samuel
Lauren and Harrison
Lauren and Hamish
Lauren and Patrick
Lauren and Adam
Lauren and Dean
Lauren and Christopher

Kayden/Hayden - Not a huge fan, of the two I'd pick Hayden but my favourite of this rhyme-family is definitely Aidan with two A's.
Declan - Love.
Damien - Like.
Brady/Brody/Bradley - Dislike, feels very '80s.
Bailey - All the Baileys I know are girls?
Jordan/Julian/Jeremy - Jordan is unisex but I don't mind that. Julian is really nice and my favourite of the three. Jeremy is... fine.
Dylan - A bit '80s but I like it anyway.
Blake - Dislike
Ethan/Evan - Not a fan of either but especially not Evan.
Travis - Please no.
Cameron - Love if you say it with at least 2.5 syllables?

My other suggestions would be:
Aidan
Aaron
Bram
Callum
Corbin
Connor
Eli
Emmett
Ezra
Jesse
Jared
Joel
Owen
