Casper is the english equivalent to Gaspar, Jasper is a totally different name with a seperate meaning.

My son is Canaan ("Kay-nan"). But I really like the name Tavish.

My son is Malachy (mal-a-kee) which is an old Irish name. Weve met a couple of elderly men with that name, but no other kids. We wanted an easy to pronounce first name, as his last name is also an Irish one that no one will ever say properly, but people always call him mal-a-ki, so oh well. still love it.

my son is Sirius, if he was a girl he would have been Athena DH was in love with the names Athena and Apollo... i wasn't so hot on apollo. I wanted Orion, but we settled on Sirius.

Our DS is Ivan, which is common in some parts of the world, but not here.

If we had another boy, he'd probably be Odin.

Others on the list:
  • Eli
  • Titus
  • Cyrus
  • DH likes Dane but I don't love it.

Our little guy is an Orion. We've called him Rye-Rye a lot but now that he writes his own name he insists on the proper Orion.

DS1 -- Drake

DS2 -- Phoenix

****************
It turned out to be more of a matched set than I had hoped, but I was in labor when DS2 got his name, and didn't really think through how the two names would go together. We thought we had 3 more weeks to pick a boy's name, but he was early, so we picked it during labor.

I'm really glad that Phoenix has his name, though, because it suits him. He is Phoenix-y.

Orion was on my list for ds! I wanted to name him Orion with Rio as a nickame. Or Marion with Rio as a nicknamed.

Ended up just naming him Rio

I also liked Justice (ended up as a middle name spelled Justus)

and

Kai

Oh, and Elijah Moon

How fun! There was a woman who used to post on some diapering board who had a son named Kincaid Chance who was basically the same age as my Kincaid Chance...they got the name from the same book. And we ran into one lady who was going to name her baby she was pregnant with Kincade, cause it was her maiden name, back when our Kincaid was tiny still.

Ezra is a female comic book character obviously, it's a male name from biblical times but, I think it can be an either or name, and if I just read it on a class list, I'd assume girl just cause all 3 ezra's I've met in real life have been female.

DS1 is Samuel Thanh (samuel being pretty common, although not where we live).
DS2 is Albert Tien.

My H was totally stoked that he had two boys to name after his favorite Quantum Leap characters. I pushed much more traditional first names having a less traditional first name myself growing up.

Other choices from my H when we were name choosing were: Orpheus, Angus, Theodore, Edward, Timothy, and Orion. I love the name Atticus myself. We obviously really like names that start with vowels.

I like Emmett! That's going to have to go on my list. DH will probably hate it. We can't agree on anything.

Hmmm I kind of like Tavish, too, but I'm SURE DH would NOT go for that.

When I was pregnant with DD I really liked 'Avery' for a boy but it seems like it's gotten really popular. I also like:

Alaric
Camden
Cedric
Corwin
Corvin
Darius
Davin
Devin
Edwin
Elliott
Esmond
Gavin
Rowan
Rylan
Stefan
Theodore

... DH is all for Edward, but I told him that was a definite NO after Twilight. Plus I didn't like any of the nicknames for Edward anyhow.

my guys aren't too unusual -Noah (became very popular after he was born!) and Quinlan (Quin for short).
My stepson is Zydeco (Zy).

I love Jasper, Ciaran, Elliot, Torvan and Luca.

We were all over Nico when I was pregnant. And the only name I could think of for a midde name was Blue! I loved it. Then I was talking to a friend one day about potential names (they were expecting a baby boy, too) and he said, "Oh, I didn't know you were a such-and-such fan (a band whose name I can't remember), that's the lead singer's daughter's name." I did not know the band, and had never heard of the names Nico and Blue paired together! So strange.

I still think Nico (& Blue for a middle) is an awesome name, but we ended up going with Elias. For the first two days of his life he was Elias Kai, but then we decided against it and went with Elias Antonio. We both really love the name Kai, and if we have any more kids (unlikely, but you never know) I imagine it would be on our short list.

I also loved the name Ezra, but my hubby shot it down because it is also the name of a band? I'm so clueless, I pretty much only listen to punk and I just don't know much about other genres of music. I also really liked Galen and Malachi, both names that my husband wasn't a fan of for whatever reason. Silly man! But Elias was always my first choice, and when he was born I was convinced that that was who he was.
