First is Logan. It's just so freakin' popular (#19) that I tend to want to avoid it. But it's still somehow our favorite. Would you avoid it because of it's popularity?
Second, Greyson. Our daughter's name is Sage. Should we avoid a name that will most likely be shortened to another color name, Grey?
Last, Baylen. What's your immediate reaction to this name? Is it girly? Do you think of hay bailin'?
Thanks for your input!
I am not all that into Greyson-but it's ok. I think Grey is cute. And I think of the herb sage-not the color when I hear your daughter's name (which is beautiful )
Baylen-I do not think of hay bailin at all! It's different -but I think I'd pick Logan over the other two-the popularity would not deter me if I really like the name.
Boy names have been hard for me too this time around. I have a girl name-but still no boy name...ugh-I may have a name thread of my own soon....

I love Greyson, but in my head it's with an A Grayson.
Baylen does seem more feminine to me, but paired with a great middle name it can be wonderful.
My choice would be Greyson. Goes well with Sage!
I am not such a fan of Baylen, but that is because I know a Jaylin, a Kaylin, and a Hayden. I think that combination (a-len) is a more popular choice today.

Greyson is a nice name, but for some reason I prefer Logan with Sage.
Baylen actually *does* make me thing of baling! That was my first thought.. sorry!
I prefer Grayson over Greyson, but I wouldn't worry about the color thing since I also think of Sage for planting.
My initial thought of Baylen is that it sounds completely made up.

the other two names i have bad associations with (bound to happen when the names are so popular- you run into people with that name you end up disliking...)
