Thoughts Needed! (we're in a name rut)

    My husband and I are at a loss as to what to name our little man who’s coming very, very soon! (we’re due the 31st!)

    We like:
    Benjamin Rory
    Andrew Blair
    Percy
    Ivan
    Ian (only as a middle)
    Darby (only as a middle)
    Julian (only as a middle)
    Rudyard (only as a middle) – honors a relative
    Winfred (only as a middle) – honors a relative
    August (only as a middle)
    Isaac (only as a middle)
    Felix (only as a middle)

    We quite like Benjamin & Andrew, but we have reservations due to their popularity, among other things. Both my husbands and I have had a goal from the start to give each of our kids a name that is a balance between “there’s ten _______s in my class at school” and “I’ve never found MY name on a souvenir keychain.” I know popularity doesn’t matter to a lot of people, but for personal reasons it does to us.

    We want two middle names if we can find something…

    Our other kids are Rosemary, Silas, and Teddy.

    I would love a bunch of new suggestions! Fresh names. :)

    Haha I love your balance of “there’s ten in my class” & “I’ve never found MY name on a souvenir keychain” that’s great! I like both Benjamin & Andrew, but they are a bit more common than your other names. I think Julian, August & Felix would go great with your other names as a fn! Andrew Blair is my favorite of the combos, maybe Andrew Isaac next? While I like Benjamin and Rory separately I think I’d prefer other names together.

    Benjamin Darby
    Benjamin August
    Benjamin Isaac
    Benjamin Felix

    Oh how I’d love to use Felix in the first name spot <3 I love it, but my husband isn’t sold on it.

    Nolan is pushing pretty hard for Ivan. `He likes Ivan Rory Hudson, but I think the flow seems off…I like Ivan Andrew Blair & Ivan Rory Felix…. thoughts?

    Loving a lot of the suggestions! Benjamin Isaac is now in the running :)

    Too bad you can’t sell him on Felix :/ Ivan Rory Felix is a good compromise though! Not crazy about Ivan but I do like the combo ^ as a whole. Benjamin Isaac is great too.

    I’m not big on Ivan but that combo’s not bad. I think you have a lot of great names on your list though!

    I would love Ian or Isaac as FNs. Or would you consider Hudson for a FN?
    I do like Benjamin Isaac quite a bit, too!
