    Boy Names

    Just looking for opinions. We had a name picked out for a girl and we have been kinda all over the map with a boy name but I feel like we should name him, I think it will help with bonding. Here's a list of what we have so far.
    Riley
    Jackson
    Noah
    Lucas
    Robert (call him RJ b/c his middle name would probably be either Joshua or Joseph)
    Matthew
    William (my husband's grandfather is named William and he wants to do William Robert b/c both our dads are Robert but all I think of is the nickname Billy Bob )

    Middle names
    Michael
    Barrett
    Robert
    William
    Mommy to Abigail Joyce 6/7/2010
    Evan Andrew 7/19/2012
    Riley Joseph 8/30/2014

    Two angel babies in heaven 5/2013 & 8/2013

    Hoping to add another princess in a couple years!

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the surname? We were going to use William as a middle name if we have a boy after this one Matthew is DH's name and his half brother is called Luca, so Luca is off which is a shame because I like Lucas. Too many Williams/Liams/Jims in the family so might give it a rest!

    I think Riley or Jackson (my friend named her first son Riley Jaxon!) for a first. Riley William has a nice ring to them x

    Thanks girls! Bunnywabbit - I feel a lil silly but what is a surname? The last name? It's Greer.
    I like any of the ones that I listed but really have my heart set on Riley or Jackson. My SIL got all pissy b/c she informed me that her fiancÚ has always liked the name Jackson and told me that if they had a son, that is what his name would be. Well, she already also told me that we can't use the name Benjamin b/c that was their grandfather's name and she was very close to him and would like to use it somehow. Well, she JUST got engaged and has actually for a while been saying that she wasn't even having kids, until very recently. Now I have two names, one which I really like, that I am not allowed to use?? I don't know think so!! I told her that I promised her that I wouldn't use Benjamin but that I wasn't going to promise about Jackson. LOL - ok rant complete!!
    Going for an u/s in a lil bit - have a full previa that is already causing some issues for me but doc seems confident that everything will be ok. Will post the pic of lil man later!

    LOL I do not think it works that way - you only get to "reserve" a name if you are having a kid BEFORE the person who is actually having one!!! And the way you reserve it is by putting it onto the birth certificate when the baby is actually born.

    I have seen this scenario happen several times and the vast majority of the time, the people didn't even end up USING the name that they were telling everyone not to use.

    That's the reason I never tell "our" names. And HOPE they don't get used.
    We had a girl Name (3names) 9 years ago. and 7 years ago our first son was born. and now we have 3 sons. and no girl. All the names are in some way used by other ppl (almost or exact names)
    We might use the first name but prolly we will choose another name cause I want something special.

    But I always said I won't change a name for anyone except a brother or sister.
    (And the baby must be born then! else first comes first. but I will never SAY a name cause ppl end up using it by then and you will never know if they were going to if they didn't hear that your fond of the name or because they were really loving it in the first place)

    SO if you love Jackson! go with Jackson!
