We are expecting baby number 3 in October. We have a 4 year old girl name Rishelle Nicole (mostly we call her Shell), and a 3 year boy old named Dylan James. We like that both of there names are not excessively common. We cannot agree on a name for our little boy. Our last name is Cress though Dylan's last name is not.
My husband likes:
Mac Austin (to be called Mac Mac)
Carson Ryan (my husband's middle name is Ryan)
Ian - no middle name yet
We both really like names that aren't too common, but I'm not huge on the seemigly "out there" names like Areilius. We both like Ian, but he thinks it is not strong enough.
Names we have absolute no's on are:
Samuel (brother's name)
Joshua (brother's name)
I'm sure there are more of those, but am drawing a blank currently. He really wants the initials to be M.A.C but it is not an asolute nessecity.
I hope that you and your readers have some good ideas for me!
We recently did less-common boy names starting with M, so I was able to reuse some of that list. Names that give you the initials M.A.C.:
Maclane Austin Cress: I like the way this one gives you Mac as a nickname from the first name as well as from the initials.
Maguire Austin Cress: Maguire is unusual, and yet familiar because of being a surname. But I'm not sure the flow is right with the surname: Maguire Cress.
Malachi Austin Cress
Malcolm Austin Cress
Marius Austin Cress: Depends how you feel about having both first name and surname end in S---but it seems like a milder way to get the feel of a name like Maximus Areilius.
Marshall Austin Cress: Ending might be too similar to Rishelle.
Mason Austin Cress
Matthias Austin Cress: Again, both first name and surname end in S.
McAdam Austin Cress: Not sure flow is good, either with all three names or with first/last.
Macallister Austin Cress
Micah Austin Cress
Miles Austin Cress: First name and surname both end in S.
Milo Austin Cress
Mitchell Austin Cress
Morrison Austin Cress: A Dylan and a Morrison might be more musical namesakes than you'd want.
I think if your husband is very keen on Mac, my favorite for you is Maclane Austin Cress. My own favorites are Malcolm and Milo.
