We had Liam Raymond picked out for a boy, but I was so in love with our girl name (Lorelai Faith) I want to find a boy's name I feel that way about. DH and I both love the ocean, and DS1's name is a name that has meaning for us as well as a mythological background, so I was wanting a name like that. Lorelai was perfect because it is the name of a mermaid/siren and the word itself means "to watch from an ocean cliff."
Raymond is DH's paternal grandfather's name and I think that is non-negotiable, we've been talking about the middle name being either his grandma or grandpa forever.
I kind of like Ronan, which means "little seal" because it has a mythological background and is ocean-related, but Ronan Raymond?? Hmmm. DH likes Cove, and I like the idea of Cove, but not so much the sound of it.
Or we could just go blatant: Ocean Raymond
Any thoughts? Ideas?
