oh boy oh boy OH BOY!

Yep, you guessed it, Wed I found out we are having our THIRD BOY! I am mourning never having a baby girl but am warming up to the idea of having three energetic boys ruling my house. My 2 boys are as sweet as they can be so I am looking forward to having another sweety but...I am sad not to have someone to go shopping with or do her hair.
The best part is that baby was 100% healthy, moving all around and has all it's important bits and pieces. My other 2 boys loved watching baby on the tv and my DH took the day off work to come for the appt. DH is thrilled, he is already planning to put them to work at G----- and Sons one day(we dont have a business yet but he is planning one).
The biggest problem at the moment is names, we have absolutely no names yet. There were a couple possiblities for girl names but nothing for boys.
Maybe you gals can help. Here are my criteria(not written in stone of course)... prefer either 4 letters or can be shortened to 4 letters, not be really common and not start with S,R,F,J,or T, and I would prefer one syllabel. It doesnt have to have an ocean theme like some people think our kid's names have. Any help would be really appreciated!

Kai? Rhymes with pie. Pretty popular name in scandinavian countries for boys. My husband and I kicked this name around for a while but have chosen a name that is more traditional.

My favorite name right now is actually Koi (like the fish). Middle name will be Robert so...
Koi Robert G_____
Robert is my DH's Grandfathers and Uncle's name and his Mom and Grandma are both Roberta. Both of my sons have different first names and traditional middle names.
Kai is nice but actually getting a little too popular for me.

Congrats. Three little boys will be fun. Crazy at times - I'm sure, but no doubt a fun adventure every day.

Oooooohhh congrats on another wee boy.

I love your kid's names. How about Griffith? I thought about Griffin but probably too close to Finnegan's nickname.

Other ideas:
Indy
Seth
Leif
Oren
Zev
Pike
Birch
Cedar
Sawyer
Huck

Sorry if those suck. But I don't get to find out about my little beastie for a few weeks so I'm excited to live vicariously through you all.

I remember that same moment of grieving for the girl I would never have. After my 3rd son was born last November I couldn't imagine life any different. I ABSOLUTELY love having all boys. There is just a certain something about having them all together. Good luck and btw I love their names!!

Congrats on your third little boy! I know you wanted a girl, but you are going to be so happy with all your boys and won't even be able to imagine life with a girl :). I'll give your name criteria a thought....

OMG!! I can't believe it! I thought for sure we were going to be on the same track!!! My sister has 3 boys and they have SO much fun together! And I love always saying "the boys". This morning I said "Bye boys have a great day!" and thought "I'm not going to be able to say that anymore". And boys take good care of their mamas! No PMSy teenager girls to deal with!

Congrats on your baby boy! Hope you figure out a name soon, we struggled as well... boys are hard to pick a name for!

I really like the name Koi. You may have a harder time convincing people that you aren't doing an ocean/water theme though. Sorry couldn't resist. Biggrin Don't let that stop you from using a great name though.
