I love the meaning behind the name Zion Merciful, very beautiful.  I have pregnancy brain and don't really have any good suggestions though sorry

What kind of meaning are you looking for?  Strength, creativity, beauty, compassion... do you have a feel for the kind of meaning you're looking for?

Not sure! That's how stuck we are. Probably more virtuous meanings, though..

I wanted to name our son Archer but I was too worried he'd end up being called Archie, which I'm not particularly fond of!

Honor, Lochlan, and Falcon are names I have heard a few times.

 

What about Ophiuchus? http://www.topastronomer.com/StarCharts/Constellations/Ophiuchus.php

My first thought when hearing Falcon is the poor kiddo caught up in the baloon boy hoax.  Love your other names.

Asher

Orion

Skye

River

 

We are at a loss this time, too! I love Orion but it sounds silly with our last name. We are going back and forth between Asher and Reilly... leaning towards Reilly because our other boys also have Irish names. Good luck!

I know a new baby named Odin. That would sound good with Grandison.

How about the Greek term Kairos? It fits well with your baby's siblings, and the meaning is lovely--"opportune moment", or in Theological circles: "appointed time in the purpose of God"  Kairos Grandison...

I like Lochlan, although I prefer the more common spelling, Lachlan. DH vetoed it, though. :p We ended up calling our baby Miles, if that appeals at all?

 

Some of our other options, in case you like 'em:

 

Brock

Heath

Firth

Llewellyn

Leander

Mason

Keats

Rhys

Owen

Warren

Morris

Colm

Connor

Callum

Cowan

Lyndon

Fynn

Finian

 

Good luck - finding a not-mind-numbingly-common-but-not-totally-out-there-and-sounding-like-a-brand-of-motorbike boy's name is HARD. Girls' names are way easier, I think.


If decomposition persists please see your necromancer.

Ioulas (Ee-oh-laus) and Perseus are two of my non-common favorites..both from Greek mythology.

Thank you all for the suggestions and I will keep them in mind for my next baby!
