Why is it so hard?!

To pick a name for our baby boy? I think boys are harder to name. When I found out I was having my daughter she was named like that week. This time, nothing is popping out at me. And, it's driving me insane. I really need a good name. I like different names but also traditional. Anyone have any suggestions? The middle name with either be Paul or Michael.

  • I know what you mean! I have 3 boys and we had such a hard time picking a name each time. My 2 favorite boy names that my husband vetoed were Kellan and Gavin.

  • I'm glad I had a girl cause we couldn't agree on a boy name at all. I like Xander, Jett, Coal, Zachary, Jesse, Jensen.....hmm that's all I can think of. Good luck.

  • We used an older name. Not common but well known. His name is Carl. Other older but I think nice names are Arthur, Dennis,
    Cedric, Luis (almost my sons name), Ezra, and Tony.

  • I had the same problem... I knew the girl name right away, but the time I went for the ultrasound to find out the sex I was just praying it wasn't a boy, I was beside myself because I just couldn't find a boys name.
    As for names maybe David, Darrin or Eric

  • I think it is tougher to names boy because we want to be sure that it is manly enough for adulthood and sweet enough for a baby! Trust me you'll know when you've got the right one! My oldest son is Samuel and a friend of mine thought it was horrible to give a baby such a "man's name"! LOL! Well, my "baby" was almost 10lbs and 2ft long at birth! Maybe have a list and then when you see him you'll know which one fits best.
