Hi there. I am due any day now (early baby) and was all set to name this baby Silas Henry Lawrence. We have another son named Hudson Graham Lawrence. However, all along I was just saying "Silas" (I love the name) and did say "Silas Lawrence" too often and I just realized that it is a bit awkward to say.
So now we need a name.
Husband is Australian with English parents. I am American. We live in the US but will likely move back to Australia one day.
We like less common names. No interest in James, Jack, Thomas, etc. Hudson was named after NYC where we used to live. We love the name Hudson and it is a perfect fit.
Our thoughts now are:
Dashiell (nickname Dash)
William (Husband's thought - I am not crazy about it).
Callum (just saw it on your site)
Really - we have nothing. I think Lawrence is hard to work with. There are names that I don't mind (Ethan, Owen, etc) but nothing that I love. I really like Silas but don't think it will work. (Thoughts?)
Any thoughts on names that sound good with Lawrence? Something a bit unique but not too crazy?
Baby could be born tomorrow so please respond soon!
I think two things:
1. It is normal to panic about the choice of baby name at the last minute.
2. Silas Lawrence is great and you should use it.
POSSIBLY if you had written early in the process I might have said Silas Lawrence was a little bit difficult for me to say, but by "for me" I would have meant "But, meh, just because it's hard for me doesn't mean it's hard for other people" and I would have added "But not enough to rule it out AT ALL,"---AND I might not have EITHER noticed OR mentioned it.
