My sister in law had a baby ….on Saturday and they have NO NAME. They don’t have a clue what to name him. So…boy, his brother is Dawson and they are one of those families that want them to have the same first letter. Not my style…but each to their own right? So….a boy D name, that goes with Jones. Super Baby Namer to the rescue?
Oh, dear, they're INSISTING on the same initial? That's so limiting---and it can really trap them if they have more kids than they thought they would, or if they suddenly find The Name of Their Dreams and it starts with a different letter.
Well, onward. As you say: to each their own. And it DOES narrow a large field down to a more workable size.
A boy D name that goes with Jones. I consulted with Mairzy, and she suggests:
My favorite book The Baby Name Wizard (by Laura Wattenberg) suggests these brother names for Dawson: Parker, Dalton, Nash, Chandler, Grayson. Just in case they want to reconsider that first-initial thing.
I'm personally a big fan of the name Del, but I know it doesn't float everyone's boat: for starters, it looks like it's short for something when it isn't. And I really like the name Daniel, but it's not a style match with the name Dawson.
With Dawson, my favorites from the lists are Dillon/Dylan and Darian.
Dillon/Dylan: 93 votes, roughly 54%
Darian: 15 votes, roughly 9%
Either one: 1 vote, less than 1%
Neither one: 64 votes, roughly 37%)]
