I am looking for some help with a boys name. My husband and I can't seem to agree on a boys name and our baby is due this month.
We have a 2 year old daughter, Suki Margaret, pronounced Soo- key and luckily if we have another daughter we have agreed on Bronte, pronounced Bron- tee, after the beach in Australia but can't seem to agree on a boys name.
If we have a boy his middle name will be either William after my husband & Grandfather or Franciscus after my Father. My husband likes Kainoa (pronounced Ky- noah) or Grayden, whereas I like Flynn, Ryder or Jake. Hawaiian names seem to be my husbands favorite and I am open to suggestions.
I'm a 2-legged stool, because I don't know even one single Hawaiian boy name. I looked up the top 100 names by state on the Social Security Administration's baby name site, but that's mostly Ethan and Jacob just like the rest of the country---until it gets out of the top 50, at which point I see Kainoa and also Kainalu, Nainoa, and Kaimana. So....I'm winging it.
I like the sound of Kainoa. Both Kai and Noah are familiar, so a name that sounds like a combination of the two won't be too difficult for people to adjust to. The nickname Kai reminds me of the names on your list.
Greyson. That's my second suggestion. It's similar to Grayden, but I feel like the Names That Rhyme With Aidan (Braden, Cayden, Greyden, Hayden, Jaden, Kaden, Rayden) are melting together into one big nice-sounding mass. I suppose a person could say the same about the Mason, Jason, Casen, Greyson group, but that group seems so much less smaller and so much less current.
Grady: again, similar to Grayden, but avoids The Group.
Griffin. Grayden + Flynn.
Please, help me out here, everyone. I am floundering.
