We have just found out that our #3 is another beautiful boy. So while we were totally sorted for girls' names we now need to find another boy's name having already used the two we like!
Our children are Nate (Nathanael) Joel and Leo Carter (family name).
The middle name will be a family name (surnamey) starting with L and our surname starts with C and sounds Italian.
I don't want any names that rhyme with sibling names.
We have a name that is a frontrunner at the moment which we both like but are open to other suggestions! Hit me!!

I'd love to help you, but we struggle enough with boys names
Posted 20 March 2012 - 07:21 PM
Thanks Lucky Ducky. I like both those names but they've both been used in the last year by very close friends!

Tricky! I struggled with my second daughter's name because I'd used my favourites with our first daughter, so I can sympathise.
Here are some I like:
Luke or Lucas
Best wishes on baby #3!

Thanks, you guys are good.
Lots I like there. Particularly:
Samuel (but not Sam)
We have discussed all of these at some stage - a few of them remain in play.

DS1's pick for the baby is Toby actually - he's campaigning hard! I have a cousin with this name though so its a bit odd.
Montgomery is actually a family name
. Monty sounds like a dog to me though. And this is uncanny but Noel is the first name of the person who's last name will be our baby's middle name (still with me LOL) so it would be a bit weird to give the same whole name (especially since he's slightly famous).
I love Luca but yeah, a bit too matchy with Leo.
shannon - I adore Theodore and it actually took us a few hours after DS2's birth to decide between Leo and Theodore. Can't have both though.

Elemenopee - I like Finn (was runner up for DS1) and Micah.

Well I clearly have some kind of ESP.

Colder.... although I do like Simon, its another cousin's name. Not keen on any of the others.

I know Harrison was mentioned earlier, but here's neither vote for Harrison....
Or are they too "last namey" for the chosen middle name?
Congrats on number 3!

I like the sound of Nate, Leo and Ryan.
Posted 20 March 2012 - 09:10 PM
Tuning mostly towards in a similar vein as Nathanael, which btw I adore,
Lazarus - Too much? I sorta love it
Crisp and sweet like Leo and Joel,

You can have my boys name that I never got to use
Posted 11 April 2012 - 10:50 PM
- Wow, most of the names you've listed are on our list or have been at some stage! DS1's middle name is there too!
Some good names there, I just don't love any of them. Karina
- Ah thanks! Zaine's not really my style though.
I like Ethan....don't think we can do Liam with Leo though.
