We're kicking off our new In Name Only feature this week by helping reader Nicole with a very timely dilemma—finding a boy's name just before she's due. Here's her question:
I actually love all four of the names that you've chosen, but I can give you a few other alternatives to add to your list.
Based on the names you've chosen, I'm figuring you want shorter names (one or two syllables), and you like that ending "n." What about a name like Brandon, Nolan or Kieran? All are names that have a bit of uniqueness to them (they currently rank number 47, 93 and 475, respectively), but without being so out there that your kid risks bullying over them.
Nicole, let us know how everything goes—and what you ended up naming your little one! What do you think of Nicole's short list (and my additions to it)? If you have a baby-naming dilemma you want to share with me, please feel free to put it in the comments below, or e-mail me at lamilbrand AT gmail.com.
