Names--what do you think?

So we want a name that is recognizable, but not likely to be one of 3 in his kindergarten class Wink So now that we have 50% of names out of the running since we know the gender, we have come up with a first list of names.

Here is our list of names, so far. We have a favorite, but I'll get your honest opinions first so to not bias your opinions Smile

Jeremiah
Isaac
Jedediah
Oakley
Parker

Any thoughts? Middle name we have not though too far on yet, but have considered Thomas after dh's dad.

I like Isaac and Oakley. I know too many girl Parkers. Those unisex names can be tricky sometimes!

Isaac. Hands down....
(Not sure why the name Oakley is becoming known...Also seen it spelled Oakleigh for a girl. Which makes it even more silly, IMO. I think of the ghetto suburb in Cincinnati)

Oakley is on the list because it was dh's grandfather's name--so we have had it on our boy list every time but it never felt "right" yet--this time it feels more right for me, dh is still on the fence with it Smile But it is my favorite of the choices because it is unique but known, and carries on the name of a really awesome man!

I like family names. What about Jeremiah Oakley? If this baby is a boy, his middle name will be Elwood, which I HATE, but it was DH's grandfather...and how often does your kid need his/her middle name, KWIM?

I never thought of that combo--funny though because I'm realizing that would be very similar to dh's little brother who is Jarom Oakley LOL I wonder if we should cut Jeremiah off the list because it is so similar to his little brother. We already have a Weston and dh's other little brother is Preston. Biggrin He has 5 younger siblings.
