help with our babies name....please read

My husband and I are having big time trouble picking a name for our son. We only have 2 months left to decide. Right now we like:
Calvin Scott
Lars Joseph
We are not telling our families the we cant ask anyone for opinions. We are also VERY open to new suggestions. Trying to stay away from very popular and trendy names though. Thanks.

  • You can do what we did.... Get on the Social Security website you can look up popular names from years dating all the way back to 18-something... We were just checking our favorite names against the top popular names of recent years, and decided to look up random years, its how we decided on Evelyn. Anyway from the two you put up I like Calvin Scott!

  • I like Caleb Scott or Lucas Scott. I like the idea of checking on the Social Security website. Wish I had done that, I named my 3 year old Madison because I thought it was orginial, what a joke! I'm a big fan of Nathan but that's pretty popular right now.

  • All those names are neat I think...and original..I like Joseph Clark cause than you can have Joe, Joey, J.C. for all neat nicknames too! My opinion doesn't matter but if I had to pick ..I would choose the Lars Joseph that you listed cause that one caught my eye when I read your list... Good Luck.. !

  • Lars... not so much... I almost named my son Cavlin but decided on Ethan- I know its a really popular name. I just always loved that name (even back in the 90s before it was so "cool"). Don't completely rule out names just because they're popular if you really like them. Also, keep a running list of names you hear and add them- even if you only like the name a little. We looked our list over every week or two- and brought it with us to the hospital- just in case.
    Also- good choice on not telling your families. Everyone has an opinion, and its usually not what you want to hear.
