Simon and Lucas.

Lucas is DS's middle name so I am partial to that. I really like Simon as well.

I had Lucas on Ds's list of names also! So maybe that says something that almost 6 years later I still like it

Simon is our boy name. I wonder if it is going to get trendy? I haven't heard much of it recently. We have another ds, Aidan and today at baby story time at the library there were 2 Bradens plus our Aidan!

Blessed to be married to my awesome husband since 2006.

I voted Simon! I do think it's getting more popular, though, but it likely won't catch up to the -aden names

I voted Simon, too. The -aden names are just way too ubiquitous for me (and made-up sounding for my taste). I'd go with Maxell next, then Lucas.

I love Maxwell and Lucas. Luca (without the s) is actually on our name list.

Lucas or Simon.

Braden is so overused. All those -en names are.

Schuyler suffers from last-name-as-first-name syndrome, plus sounding impossibly preppy and snobby.

Maxwell - too last name

Thanks mama's

I thought of Braden because at Ds's swim lessons the one lifeguard is named Braden and he is so sweet and cute a real gentlemen that is really the only time I have heard the name

I really like Schuyler and Simon our one name that is on our list is Wesley and that is our back up name! If we do not think of anything else that we both like.

Schuyler or Braden. Braden was our pick for a boys name, I only heard of it just recently and fell in love with it. But alas, we're having a girl

How is Schuyler pronounced? Is it like Skyler? If so, then I'd spell it that way.

Yes it is pronounced Skyler but Schuyler is the "proper" spelling.

Thanks Mama's we are still up in the air with a name and it is driving me nuts! I like to have a name picked before we find out the gender and I am over half way through and still have no clue!!

We have axed Braden, and Maxwell. We have added Ivan, Cyrus, and Victor.

Well, the baby I'm pg with now will be Simon Maxwell, so I guess you can figure out which names I voted for.
