We're due with our first baby on Oct. 16, though he's breech, so we have a c-section scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 7. I realize I'm reaching out to you at the last minute, but thought I'd give it a try anyway :)
Our last name is Rodriguez, which is fairly common, so I'm hoping for a more unique name, and of course my husband is more traditional with the options he's sharing. I think we've settled on Jax Diego... Jax is my top choice, Diego is his. Although we wanted to give our son his own name (and not name him after a family member) we like how his name starts with a "J", the same letter as both my father and my husband's father, so it's a bit of an indirect tribute to both of them. If our son doesn't like his name at all, we feel the initials JD give him a more common option. I struggled with having Diego as a first name (and some of the other options my husband liked, like Marco and Mateo) because of the ethnic angle. neither of us look Hispanic. some of my other favorites were Colt, Cole, Grant.
It sounds like you've got your baby's name! Good luck on Thursday!
