I know. When my ds first said that to me I thought he was being silly. Then I mentioned it to a few other people and they agreed with him. I think I'll have to take the word of a just barely not teen anymore guy about what other teen guys would do.
We don't want to do another 'K" sounding name since we have a Kellen. My dh is also very hung up on meaning. Since he's a US Marine, he wants a strong, warrior, hero type meaning. We did agree on Sloan as a middle name, which means warrior or something like that. I can't remember exactly now. I was hoping that would help him let go of the first name meaning but it hasn't.
I like Braeden, too, but my dh won't agree to that one either, I think mostly because of the meaning. I have teased him and told him since he won't be here I can name the baby whatever I want. I won't really do that (I don't think
) but I am getting a little tired of going around in circles with him.
We have way too many rules to pick a 4th boy name.
