Default What Should I name my Son?

At 42 years old Im going to have my first son on April the 4th... funny, I have grandsons now, and Im about to have my first son.

Anyway, my wife and I still havent come up with a name.... we figure we may just stare at him for a night or so and try to figure out what he looks like...lol

Anybody have any name ideas?

I was thinking Rudyard Kipling Durham

But she wont go for it... she wants it to be original but not strange... not named after a hero or anything...!

Im stumped. I also like the first and mid Kahlil Gibran ...

But Im weird like that.

Joel - I always wanted the name Joel but my husband didn't agree. So our middle boy Corey has it for his middle name and he actually says he would prefer Joel as his first name

My 3 boys are:

Benjamin Travis
Corey Joel
Lachlan Glen

So I guess they are my favourite 6 names

To be honest, I'd never give a kid a name that I wouldn't want to be called.

One couple I know called their little boy "Tiberius" because that was James T. Kirk's middle name and the dad was a Star Trek fan. No I'm not joking. The poor guy has to spend the rest of his life being called "Tiberius". If only the father had 'tried out' that name for 3 months by asking everyone who knew him to refer to him as "Tiberius", he'd have realised what a dumb name that was and called the kid "David" or "Matthew".

Another couple I know wanted to call their unborn son "Herbert". Thankfully it was a girl, so "Herbert" became "Harriet". Which to my ears sounds quite sophisticated.

While living in the "rust belt" in the north of England, I've heard mothers call out various names down the supermarket aisles to their kids: "Cassidy" (girl), "Reegan" (girl), "Teegan" (boy), "Kaylin" (boy). I think that some people treat their children as fashion accessories rather than humans, and forget that the name that they give to their children will last a lifetime. I can't believe that anyone who calls their son "Kaylin" has really sat down and pictured their offspring at the age of 75. If they had, I feel sure that they would appreciate just how uncomfortable a 75-year-old man is going to feel when he has to confess that his name is "Kaylin".

Okay, rant over. I'm going to bed.

Here's a pretty cool site for baby names and meanings of names.

Lol John this is so remniscent of my wifes thoughts. Thanks... by the way those are some cool names you threw out... Makes alot of sense.

Also some really great other names on this thread thanks guys... A@ Thunderbird, I actually thought of Lucus or Lucious but she wouldnt go for it.

Sheryl Your children have very cool names. I like that name Lachlan alot,

Darn John, you have reminded me of some primal classic truths here to think about.

Her pick for a name is John David.... she likes that or "Carter" (I dont like either of those)

@ Jody. Im a Jr... he would be a third but Im mixed about the personal identity thing there...

Thanks for the ideas guys and gals!

Sons are extra special.....big congrats!
imo, staring at him a couple of days before finalizing name might not be a bad idea
I named my boy James Douglas he never took to a nickname, his suits him.
My brother is also named James but was always a Jimmy to us and now Jim in his profession.
Byron
Samuel (sam)
Gerald (jerry)
Bryant
Allen

that's some in our clan I always like the names that can 'mature' once they are grown with acceptable nickname for childhood..

Best to you and wife!!

Really, the moment I read this thread and see it's your first son? why not John? Even though it will be after a hero ie: you, why not let your name live on and John, Johnnie, or however you might spell it is and always will be a captivating kind of name....

other thoughts... Ryder (getting to be popular but not so much yet) Jacob (always kind of thought provoking), I still think that John is just perfect... but I love the names I gave as well as Ryan, David, Cory, Nathaniel, and again for some reason I think Jacob sounds cool but John is my choice if you are taking votes.

However, after having 6 kids and only letting one be named by their dad and now I love the name "darci" girl by the way... I know mom should and will have the last say .....

I guess Jon Bon Durham would be too much?

I like one syllable men's names: Trent, Brent, Brett, Brit, Lance, Trace

What I shudder at is using the fad "name of the year" as so many seem to do. I think that happens more with girls than boys?

Hi John and congratulations to both.
I have got 3 children and since they are half Icelandic (I am Italian) I felt very much that I wanted to give an Icelandic name at least to the first one, chosen going back and forth on a list of thirty or so...
So the priority was a name that sounded well in both languages and English, I did not want it too long and preferably without "r" because I have a french "r" and if I can avoid it I prefer...
The second one we went for Italian, but still a name with a connection with daddys name. We had a bit of difficulty regarding the christening because I wanted it spelled with "c" instead of "k" and apparently this was a bit against the tradition of the church etc etc but eventually we got around that.
For the third one the consideration that prevailed was that he was so much like my father , recently passed away, that it would have been an insult to call him something else. So we went for my father name and his father name as a second name.
But generally speaking I like short names that flow well not too old fashioned but definitely not some of the nicknames you hear today.
For a boy I like the names Joel and Vidal (this last one I have hardly heard it before but it was so stuck in my head for some reason) for a girl Amy, Kelsey, Lisa, Hazel...

@ Bill, No I do the hard part that takes talent - Sales... lol JK, Darren is the sharpest guy Ive worked with on MANY levels!

@Kay

Good ones. "Lance" eminds me of another name I thought of "Chance". But that sounds kinda like a cocker spaniels name... Brit is Cool!

LOL @ Pick that apple... my wife would crack up. Sometimes we joke around and tell people my name is vidal and she is Armie';

Vidal had been searching all his life for his childhood love Armei' after being torn away from his homeland by war when he was a boy....

One day he saw this girl jogging in a camouflage suit with a name on the front of her t -shirt, he looked closer and could believe his eyes, it said A-R-M-Y "Armei'"

So he chased her down and by God it was really her... It was a touching reunion.

So he flew her back to the chicken farm in Armenia where they had both known each other as children... and he traded her father 200 chickens for her hand and marriage, and one goat, as is customary in that part of the country...

Vidal is a very proud chicken farmer... outside of the wf where's he's known as the telemarketing guy... a disguise for his secret chicken smuggling operation which has made him a secret millionaire.

Yup.

Thats the story.

Someday we are going to sell all the chickens to offline chicken diner businessmen, and start our own restaurant called "Armei's" in down town Nashville with fine cuisine, as well as live citar and juice harp music on saturday nights. Im telling you its gonna be a real wing ding!!!

When choosing names - always look at what nicknames might get used. You don't your kid to hate you in his teens because you named him Cleopolis or Ezekial or Sue. With a 2 syllable last name, I'd use one syllable first name. I mean, Truman Durham just trips the tongue up. Then again, I do like Carter.

You could call out names and see if he jumps when he hears the one he likes....

Let your wife pick the name. It will show you love and trust her, and your son's name shouldn't make that much of a difference to you. You'll be calling him by his nickname anyway.

Chase is really nice. I like that alot. Im like you... I want some deep meaning. my wife is more sensible like Paul and John above... She wants conservative so as not to make him feel above the other children, or different... she says women love classic names, and his wife would want him to have a strong classic name... All of this makes sense... We must temper our passion with reason lest it becomes a flame that burns to its own destruction.

Hell I would Love to name Him Kahalil Og Mandino Kipling Durham!

Congratulations!

When we were expecting our first born, we were told at the scan that the baby was a girl (back in 95 the scans weren't so clear as they are now). So we had a name picked out and what do you know, baby was a boy. We called him Luke.

Son number 2 we called Adam and we finally got to use our girls name when Juliette came along.

You'll know what his name should be when you have him in your arms.

Best wishes for a safe delivery.

Kate

John, first of all, congratulations on having your first son.

Why not just call him John Jr?

That way the name goes on.

Just a thought.

Anyway, here's wishing you the best for him, his future and the next couple
of years of potty training.

Oh joy.

John - Big Congrats!

Here's something to think about. I know you like true stories!

I have had 6 children and each one helped select the name when they were a baby.

I believe a baby is born with a certain spiritual knowingness and has a lot more going on in their little mind than we give them credit for.

For each of our children we put together a list of about 10 names we liked. Then, when the baby was extroverted and not hungry, tired, cranky etc we would sit him down in a baby seat. The other kids watched but everyone had to be still. Then one by one we went down the list of names and recorded the reaction. Try it - The baby will react!

Go through the list a few times and you will see a similar reaction to each name - even if you mix up the order.

My 5th child had the best reaction. Angela was one of the names we read to her. When we read it she puckered up her face as if about to scream! Did that every time she heard the name. We scratched it off the list fast!

She ended up being named Bridget Katie-Ellen.

Two years ago, at the age of 11 she approached me right out of the blue and said "Mom, do you know why I didn't like the name Angela when I was born?" Shocked, I asked why.

She replied, "I thought you were saying "Tarantula"

She's always had an extreme fear of spiders!

Your child will live with this name for a long time, so why not let him tell you what name he likes?

Thanks!

Cathy

My children's names:

Alice
Tom
Russell
Rhiannon
Bridget
Pamela

Suggestion : Benjamin John Durham

What a beautiful account of wonderful events!

John congratulations to you and your wife. I don't have any name suggestions, other than to think like a kid - what gross nickname would a kid create out of the name choices? Avoid those and all should be well.

I sure encountered some interesting names when we lived out on the west coast. Sunshine, rainbow, feather, spring.... I felt so sorry for those children...

You can pick a name for your son if you visit a site that offers child name. There, you can pick a good name with a good meaning of his name.

My husband's name is John, and we named our son Sean. Sean is an Irish form of John, so it was our way of naming our son after his father without having a Jr.
