Ok, so we are down to the wire and have not been able to come up with a boy name yet. We have a Colin, Claire and a Keegan. Things are already starting and the dr says it might be this weekend. We like Irish names but nothing too far out there. We are not crazy about names in the top 100 either.
other names we are considering are: number is the ssn ranking; bold ones we like, not bold are on the list but not really in the running but not crossed off either.
Cade 293 ( how do you say this one?)
Calden (Cal for a nickname) n/a
Callum (ditto) n/a
Kian (rhymes with Ian) 664
Kieran (husband likes but it sounds too much like Karen to me) 571
Kingston 355 (jumped from 942 in 2006!)
Kylan (we have a friend with a girl named this so to name a boy???)776
My husband still likes Liam since this is boy number three he is still trying to get that name but I am not crazy for it. Especially since it is popping up everywhere! I like the name just not in our sibset: Colin, Claire, and Keegan. I really like Quentin but he is not fond of it and so we are stuck.
I pronounce Cade with a hard-C sound, rhyming with Wade and Jade.
To my ear, both Kian and Keaton sound too similar to Keegan---but as with most naming issues, this is an entirely subjective thing. My favorite from your list is Callum, even though I find myself tempted to choose a K name to make it come out "even"! But I'm not sure---is Callum too similar to Colin?
What does everyone else think? What name would you choose for the fourth child?
