**PLEASE HELP** still looking for a good boys name

I need a good boys name both my husband and I can agree on. We both like Jack & Colin however we are afraid both of these names are too common(both in the top 50) I would like any suggestions, for great first names and also middle names to go with Jack or Colin. Our baby is due soon so anything would be helpful, also we have a daughter named Madelyn if that is of any help. Thank you in advance for your time and consideraton!!!

  • I wanted to name my son Mason James but we ended up naming him Anthony. It suits him. If you want a name that is not as popular you could always go with Jackson or Nolan. You can never go wrong with giving middle name from a relative that means alot to you both. Good luck on your new arrival. : )

  • I always liked Maxwell Hampton, but Max may be more common than you like. I also like older names, for instance if we had a boy, I wanted to name him Henry James. I think people try too hard to find newer, trendy names that end up being overused. You can't go wrong with a classic! BTW, I LOVE Jack.

  • I forgot to say were I live every other boy is named Jack. It drives me nuts. Not to be mean but everytime I hear the name Colin I think of a mans bum - you know where a bowel movement (poop) comes out. Oh god I know its gross but just being honest. GL.
