Need Opinions on Names!!!!!
Okay so we are having our third boy and have thought of three names so far. We go for non traditional names, our first son is named Makhias (name of a town in Maine...spelt Machias...I changed spelling) Winter (mother's maiden name) and second is Emerson (from Ralph Waldo Emerson) Nathaniel (from author Nathaniel Hawthorne). Here's whats on list for new baby, please, please, please give some honest opinions and some ideas for middle names would be great!!!!

1) Sylas (first name of author that wrote history of town we moved from)
2) Xavier (just like name, lol)
3) Timaeus (from Plato's dialogues)
4) Sebastian (DH doesn't like this name at all).
5) Tobias (but this rhymes with my oldest son, Makhias, lol and I don't like Toby as a nickname).

I am going crazy trying to figure it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for all your thoughts <3

Ooh, your boys have lovely names! :cloud9:

1) Sylas - Love it!
2) Xavier - I like this too!
3) Timaeus - not keen.
4) Sebastian - OK.
5) Tobias - I've always loved this name! I'm not keen on Toby as a nickname either, it sounds better on a younger child or teen than an adult imho.

For middle names, how about

Horatio, Atticus, Jude, Aldous or Jasper? Think they go fine with 1) and 2).

Good luck :thumbup:

Thanks!!!!!! :) We like non traditional names, all of our friends are waiting to hear the name of this baby, lol. I like Atticus for a middle name!!I also thought of another name, Zayden....what do you think of that?

Not keen on Zayden, I prefer Zane or Jayden, but don't hate it.

How about Zev or Rocco?

I'd have Xavier Tobias - it wouldn't matter that it rhymed then, and its unlikely to be shortened :)
