Clay?


Help!
We can't agree on any names. OH likes clay. I am really not keen. I feel like we may aswell call him cement, concrete, brick! It doesn't seem like a name to me.
What are people's thoughts on it?

Surname is Williamson. Whilst I agree we need a short name, I think one syllable isn't enough it needs to be two at least.

One other we agreed is just 'OK' is Rogan. I tried Roman but OH says he doesn't like that.

Big brother is called Rio.

A few I put onto a possible list but OH dismissed are Oscar, Ralph, Rocco, Sidney (this is probably going to be middle name)

Any input please? Suggestions?
We are getting nowhere!

i dont really like it but i dont hate it. if you dont like it though then you could either agree for the middle but personally i think you should tell him you dont like it and would like to pick something you both like

its hard agreeing on stuff like i love the name liam and my mum and partner hate it lol xx

He knows I don't like it. He said I need to come up with something better then
Struggling!
I don't want to call my baby something I really don't like at all. I've got to call him that name forever. I'd rather us both agree on one we both think is 'OK' as I don't think there's a name that exists that we will both equally love lol.

I quite like it- especially with your sons name and surname. I'm not a huge fan of the name itself, but it sounds nice out with the others.

Me and DH struggled to agree on a name - in the end, he chose Max and I said Maxwell, so a bit of compromise. I also got the middle name I wanted too 😆

If your really against it, don't settle. You need to be happy with the name too!

maybe you could go with a longer, more "real" feeling name and use Clay as a nn? Clayton, for example.
I love Sidney, I'd totally push for that.
Other suggestions:
Sage
Sawyer
Asher
Reid
Levi
Archer
Rafe
Rex

I like Sidney because when you say Sidney and Rio together it sounds like Sydney, so I'd think they were themed names. Personally I wouldn't go for themed names, but I do like them on others!

I feel similar to you about Clay. I really like Roman though (and again sorta feeling a city theme ...)

It's quite 'American' to me. Not a bad thing just might be unusual in the U.K.

Do you like Ray since it's similar?

If I'm honest I'm really not keen on Clay I agree with you it's like cement or modelling clay! Also reminds me of Wayne Rooney they have a Klay. Not that that's bad as they seem like really nice people, I'm just not a fan of any of their boy names!

I do really like Roman. You should push for that! Rogan isn't a name I've heard before it makes me think of Rogan Josh the curry!

I also like Sidney a lot if only he'd go for that!

Other suggestions of shortish names to go with Rio

Rex
Fox
Levi
Brody
Stanley
Jax

I love Rex. My OH would never agree to such a name, he's a traditionalist with names, but I really like it Goes well with Rio. Clay does remind me of the Rooney's, I'm not hugely keen personally. Sid as a stand alone name? Rather than Sidney?
