Sam and I took a long time to decide on this little guy’s name. Long to us anyway – with Bella we knew almost immediately. The twins only took a few days to decide – mostly it was middle names that took the longest.
This time around we talked it over for about five weeks after finding out that we’re having a boy. We used four of our favorite boy names for Preston and Julian so coming up with two more wasn’t an easy task.
I’m one of those people where a name that I love can be ruined for life if it’s attached to the wrong person. Made fun of me in 6th grade for glasses? Your name is now associated with pure evil. That narrowed it down even more.
Then Sam and I couldn’t agree. I wanted something super old fashioned and unique. He didn’t know what he wanted, but described it as “manly.” Which couldn’t be defined. Obviously. Men. Finally after weeks of asking him to seriously sit down and talk about a few names, we narrowed it down to our 10 favorites and then crossed off from there. I absolutely love our choices; he picked the first name and I picked the middle. We aren’t sharing (yet!), but you might be able to guess what we chose as you scroll through.
