My list:

Dante
Rafael
Gabriel

DH's list:

Quinlan
Bartley
Kane

Just pick one, or a few in order of preference, or all in order of preference.  Feel free to add comments/opinions/suggestions.   I have a feeling it's going to be a long 18.5 weeks of debating this one  unsure.gif

ETA: DS1 is Leo and DD also has an Italian sounding name.

I like Dante, then Gabriel and Rafael are okay, as is Quinlan.

I have a bad personal association with a Kane.

Is your DH serious about Bartley or just trying to get a rise ou of you?

Normally I would strongly advocate both parties agree on a name they both like or can at least live with - but in this case stick to your guns on your list.

Your names:

Rafael and Gabriel get equal batting for first place - LOVE those names.  wub.gif Dante comes a close 2nd.

I think he is trying to get a rise out of me full stop! I have edited my OP to say that our other kids have Italian sounding names. I studied Italian when I was young and visited Italy many times and like names that are meaningful to me like historical figures or relatives. But I don't want to influence the results of this survey  wink.gif

Kane

#17 clinkers

I like Gabriel (Gabe - more), Dante and Quin (not Quinlan though).  I prefer shorter names, especially for boys.

Kane has bad associations for me too!

#18 **Xena**

Posted 24 January 2012 - 11:22 PM

Love Gabriel and Rafael

Like Quinlan (prefer Quinn) and Dante

Really not a fan of Kane and Bartley

Your list is great - I would rate them as follows, but they are all good names.

1. Rafael
2. Gabriel
3. Dante

I don't want to rate your DH's list, they are all equally bad!

Your husband's list reminded me of my husband's suggestion "Barclay" cos he saw the bank's advertisement whilst watching the English Premier League (and it was actually in a baby name book!!!) and "Brewster" (from the said book!!!) becuase he was and is a home brewer!!!! Honestly!!!!!

i like Rafael and Gabriel only but worry they sound too feminine for Aussie blokes!!!!!
