Just looking for some suggestions/opinion on a middle name for our second son due in August.
We like names that aren't common for the first name, but something that people at least know how to spell and are definite 'boy' names for the middle name. Also want it to be short and prefer one syllable though two would be ok. Name meaning is also important to me and I've already vetoed some names due to this.
Our first son's name is Delavan Leo just to give you an idea of our taste (Delavan is an old Irish name meaning good friend - love this name meaning so much)
The name we want for the new baby is Olin (meaning 'of the ancestors' or 'holly' - don't love these meaning but love the name and nickname 'Ollie').
So we're looking at Olin _____ D***ey M**key. The second middle name is my last name which our first son has also (I kept my name when we married).
Some names we've thought of:
-Joe (hubby likes this me not so much)
-Wolf (both like this but might sound like 'lone wolf'?)
-Jabez (from great great grandfather but means 'borne in sorrow' so a no-go for me)
-Lennox (hubbys fav but initials would spell OLD M**key)
I can't seem to find any reasonably common short names that I like that also don't spell words with the initials.
Any suggestions or comments will be appreciated. Sorry for the novel!
