    Me and my husband recently found out we are having a boy. We have made two seperate short lists but would love more suggestions and opinions. We did not decide our first child’s name (Lucan) until I was in labour (not last minute naming our child again!).

    His list: Darren, Edric, Nicholas, and Nolan.
    My list: Jackson, Heath,and Asher.

    I really love Nicholas – it’s one of my top names. Of your other names, I like Darren best. None of the others are favorites of mine, but I don’t really have any problem with any of them.

    How about:
    Declan
    Kieran
    Harrison
    Kendall
    Ian
    Marcus
    Dean
    James
    Oliver
    Quinn
    Riker
    Damien
    Blaine
    Vincent
    Xavier
    Dorian
    Bennett
    Rylan
    Cedric
    Drake
    Maxwell
    Roman
    Giovanni
    Henry
    Felix
    Bentley
    Zane
    Malcolm
    Troy

    Let us know if there’s anything from anyone’s suggestions that either of you like, and people can offer more suggestions based on those.

    Darren is so handsome, Nicholas is classic and I like Nolan too. Dislike Edric-sounds (sounds dated & looks like Eric misspelled) I like Jackson but it is so overused.. Heath & Asher are okay.
    Unless you are already set on a MN maybe you could use one from each list? Darren Asher or Nicholas Heath would be my votes. You could also try to compromise by combining some: Darren + Asher= Dash, Edric+Jackson =Edison, etc.

    I like Nicholas, Nolan, and Heath best of these options, but Lucan and Nolan are too similar I think. Heath goes better style-wise with Lucan, so that would be my vote, although I love Nicholas too. Other names I think would go well with Lucan are Everett, Miles, Xavier, Ezra, and Cade.

    I like Nicholas, Nolan, Heath and Asher.

    My favorite would probably be Nolan Heath or Nolan Asher.

    I would avoid names starting with L and also names ending with N because I feel either would be too similar to Lucan.

    I’ve never heard of Lucan before, and thought maybe it was a typo for Luca or Lucas, or even Lucian. I searched for it and according to this website it is of Latin origin. So I searched for other Latin-origin boy names, not ending in N, and here are some that I feel sound well with Lucan:

    ~ Bennet / Bennett (nn Ben)
    ~ Benus (nn Ben)
    ~ Caius / Kaius (not sure if this is pronounced Kay-us or Kye-us, but I like the way it looks.)
    ~ Callum / Kalum / Kalem (nn Cal) (again, not sure if this is pronounced Cal-um or Kay-lum. I like it either way, but prefer Kay-lum.)
    ~ Dante / Dontae
    ~ Dominic / Dominicus (nn Dom)
    ~ Draco
    ~ Felic / Felix
    ~ Franco / Frankus (nn Frank)
    ~ Ignacio / Ignacius / Ignatius (nn Iggy)
    ~ Merit
    ~ Silas / Sylas (nn Sy)
