Old Man Names Please!

post #1 of 90
Thread Starter 
Ok, I never thought I would start a thread about baby names but I need ideas! We had two boys names picked out but now I'm feeling less enthusiastic about them. We tend to like
'old man' names (for lack of a better adjective!) I would like the middle name to be either Lowell or George (family names) our names we had picked were Walter (Walt) or Felix. Both are not sounding right to me for various reasons even though I love both names. (The Odd Couple and a certain flatulent canine spring to mind) Does anyone have any ideas? BTW we are open to suggestions for girls too but I am becoming convinced that this baby is a boy!
Oh, and our other two kids are Oscar and Rose.

What about Harold or Gerald... maybe Franklin? I'm not to good at this.

And isn't Felix a cat?

Our DS's middle name is Norbert, after his German great-grandpa. People always say, "Oh. Norbert..... that must be a family name." (read: "Oh my God, that's awful.") :LOL

hmmm... middle name Lowell or George...

Floyd?
Herman?
Hyram?
no, I think it needs three or more syllables with a short sounding middle name like those (how many syllables is your last name?)

Jebediah
Nathaniel
Rodrigo
Alistair
