    Default Name help

    DF and I can't decide on a name and I'm 38 weeks. I posted this a while back on my bb but figured i'd get some more opinions here.

    Dylan -both love it but its really popular
    Adrian
    Alistair (we can't agree on how this one is pronounced he says Al-eh-ster (i dont like this) i say Al-eh-Stair (I do like this one)
    Trystan - i love it, df is ok with it
    Rhys
    Bryce - both like it not a fav
    Quinn - both like but not a fave
    Cameron - both like
    Daryn- df likes alot I don't

    Unrelated My mom suggested Adrian to me a while ago but i never mentioned it to DF because I didn't think he'd like it and it seemed a bit close to DD name (ariana). what do you guys think? are they too similar?

    We're also trying to add middle names in with this.. we were thinking Dylan Alistair but his last name starts with *N* and is one syllable. so initials would be DAN (DF's name is Daniel/Dan so he said no way).

    Some combos that I like but we're not set on these names for the middle name.. we're more concerned with finding a first name:
    Adrian Rhys
    Adrian Alistair
    Trystan Rhys
    Dylan Bryce
    Dylan Rhys

    Honest Opinions:
    Dylan -I LOVE this name but my silly sister used it on one of her kids. It is pretty popular right now though
    Adrian- I do think it's too similar to Ariana
    Alistair - Will make me think of Harry Potter every time.
    Trystan - the sound "trist" means "sad" in romantic languages, so I've never been a fan of this name.
    Rhys - I like! Original but not unheard of.
    Bryce - Like, don't love
    Quinn - I really like
    Cameron - might just be in my friend group, but seems really popular these days
    Daryn- don't like, but it isn't the name's fault. I had an unfortunate romantic experience with a Daryn once

    Dylan- like this one
    Adrian- ive never been a fan of having my kids having similar names.. so i wouldnt use this with Ariana personally
    Alistair -id pronounce this the same as your DH... its not my favourite tho
    Trystan - i love this name... but it looks made up with the "y" in it.. Tristan or Tristen look better to me
    Rhys- very nice
    Bryce - was on my list of names but didnt work with our last name
    Quinn - LOVE this name...
    Cameron - really like.. do you care if there are girls with this name too? because its becoming more and more popular for girls
    Daryn- at first glance it seems feminine to me.. im not sure why. i think its the spelling.

    my favourite of the pairings is Trystan Rhys. i also like Quinn Adrian, Dylan Bryce, and Quinn Rhys.. good luck choosing!

    Lurker~ You said you love Dylan, but think it's too popular, have you considered Dallin?? I have always loved the name and it's not super popular and sounds a lot like Dylan. Hope you find a great name that you love

    Dylan -I like this name but I agree it's very popular theses days
    Adrian- I know more girls with this name then boys so I have a hard time seeing it for a boys name. And I think it's very similar to your daughters name
    Alistair- LOVE it... But like Jooniper said... I will think of Harry Potter every time.
    Trystan - I like this one alot but it's very popular among babies right now
    Rhys- LOVE IT
    Bryce - LOVE IT
    Quinn - I prefer the longer form of Quinnton
    Cameron - Like it
    Daryn- I like this name

    Dylan -like it but pretty popular....can also spell it Dillon
    Adrian- really similar to your DD's name.....not a fan of it for a boy
    Alistair- not sure how I feel on this one....
    Trystan - my DH tells me he was almost named this...but the meaning is...Child of Sorrow. So for that reason, it wouldn't be on my list
    Rhys- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this name....it's on our boy list
    Bryce - LOVE this one too....
    Quinn - I'm neutral on this one
    Cameron - Like it but for a girl....Kamryn is on my girl list right now
    Daryn- like it....can also spell it Darren

    GL....I'm moments away from popping out this kid and we still aren't set on a name...
