Still can't decide on a name (x-post w/ July-Sept DD Club)

  • DH and I have really struggled to come up with a name we both like for this little guy. We have narrowed it down to 4 names, but haven't decided for sure which two to pair together.

    In alphabetical order the names are:
    Arron (we like the variant spelling)
    Jonas
    Kevin
    Lee (this was my maiden name)

    We originally liked Jonas Arron, but DH thinks Lucas & Jonas sound odd together - "These are our boys Lucas & Jonas." We are leaning now toward either Kevin Jonas or Kevin Arron, although I think maybe the second combination sounds a little too rhyme-y and the initials would spell KAW - not a word, but still could lead to some mild teasing like caw-caw for the sound a crow makes. Trying to think of all the permutations people and other kids might come up with is really hard.


     
    Somehow it was so easy to decide the first time around and this time it has been so hard. We're doing good to have narrowed it down this far since we started off with a list of around 50 names to work from. We looked at family names, the meanings of the names, the meanings of two names together, etc. to get to this point.

    Any combos of the above names just jump out at any of you as seeming better than others?

  • I don't think that kaw will be a problem, and I'm big into anything that a kid might get teased over. You didn't ask, but I don't like Arron. It will get misspelled ALL the time. With a nice name like Kristina Lee, you probably didn't go through being called the wrong name and having it all spelled wrong (except maybe a C for the K). Jeanne isn't all that uncommon but people love putting letters in everywhere. I still get called Janine and Jenny all the time.
    I think Jonas and Lucas sound nice together. I also like Kevin. I think my favorite would be Jonas Aaron, or if necessary Jonas Arron (since it's the middle name it won't be used all that much!)
    Good luck and....
    it's YOUR baby so name it whatever you love!
Thank you 3Princes!

  • I like Jonas Arron or Arron Lee. But that's just me!

    Jeanne--- I'm not sure about Kristina, but I spell mine Christina and no one can get it right to this day! I'm still getting it with a K or with an e at the end instead of an a!
Thank you koala_kaper!

  • Believe it or not I got all kinds of wierd stuff with being Kristina. I generally go by Tina, but for anything official or legal documents I use the full name and I always have to say "Kristina - with a K". I got called everything from Katrina, Katrinka, Kristine, etc.
    IF we do decide on Arron we would more than likely choose it as the middle name so the variant spelling would not be a daily issue.

  • I think going with Arron (with the variant spelling) as a middle name is a good choice.

    For what it's worth, I like Kevin. Could you do two middle names--Kevin Arron Lee [Last Name]??
Thank you Dopey406!
