I tried to ressurect a post I started a couple years ago when my wife was pregnant with baby 1. We had no clue what to name him, and we are now in the same predicament with my wife pregnant with baby 2. It's another boy, and he's due in April. Please share any names that you like, or don't like, and help us name our boy. When we narrow it down to a few names, I'll add a poll and see if PL matches up with my wife and I. Thanks for any and all imput!

Maybe for the next one. He's going to be our second son, so how about Dos? Wouldn't that fit better?

Sorry schultzy...I should have clarified; I meant since he would be the third "boy/man"...you being the first, your other son being the second!

 You could use Michael either as a first or middle name.  My first two grandchildren ( boy, girl)  have their parents first names as their middle names.

What ever it is, pick something where the tongue slides easy into the "sch" sound of Schultz.  There is a pronouncable, musical quality to a good name.


Thomas Schultz doesn't work.  Hiss S into a shh. Yick.


Mark Schultz does.  Hard K into the soft sh. Like a kid's gunshot effect. lol

We named our son Alexander. We call him Zander.

But...but...but...what about Charles Schultz--the cartoonist who made "Hiss S into a shh" cool?

I would say pick one from your family ancestry or heritage.  I named my son Eian because we are Scottish by ancestry and the Galic version has the E in front of the IAN, which is common.


I have always liked the name KEATON for a boy, but it's best if it sings with a middle and last name and of course ETHAN is another one from the UK  that I have always liked.  I had that one picked out long before the MI movie series came out, but ex wife did not like the name for some reason?  Congrats and enjoy the fun.  Be safe...

I named my first daughter giving her the first names of my mother and mother in law.  While juniors are not allowed by your wife, you could honor your father, grandfather or father in law if so inclined.


So long as you do not give them names like a set of twins that went to our schools.  They were Lemonjello and Orangello which equated to Lemon Jello and Orange Jello.

Do NOT give him a name everyone is going to stumble over trying to pronounce for the rest of his life. 


DO give him a common name that is pronounced as it is spelled.  That way he won't be obliged to explain his name for the rest of his life.


Unless he will be a bullrider, DO NOT give him a cowboy name like Cody or Dakota - especially if you live in a suburb of Los Angeles.  He will be a buttpin in school.  When he grows up his name will remind everyone of the cover of "Blue Boy Magazine".


If you have already named your son Cody, make sure he knows how to bust a bronc.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Hopefully you keep them rolling. My wife and I are at a complete name block for this little guy. Hopefully we get something soon. I'm sad to see that somebody already took Orangello. That was at the top of our list....

I guess it all depends on the "who" or "what" you are trying to honor.  Are you trying to honor a person?  Are trying to honor a heritage?  Are you trying to honor the deity?  Let's try to set some parameters from which to work, otherwise you may as well get one of those baby name books that have got literally thousands of names in them.


I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them.
