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!! original.gif

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
Mitchell
Declan
Thomas
James
Liam
Archie
Alistair
Andrew/Andy
Bryce
Theodore (Ted)
Henry
Spencer

Best wishes on baby #3!

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 original.gif . 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. sad.gif

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

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, Spencer?

Or are they too "last namey" for the chosen middle name?

Or Max/maxwell/Maxim?

Congrats on number 3!
