Curious what others think. I thought I was set but now I'm thinking I want another idea...I can't think of any but I still feel that way, lol. Gaelic/Celtic first name is a must. Our other kids are Cameron Blair, Rileigh Grace, Brody Matthew, Keera Rose. Not sure about doing a first name without an r in it since everyone else has one. Oh and our last name is two syllables and ends in er so a first name that ends that way is out. My husband really wants to use Robert as a middle name (it's his mn as well) but I'm still not keen on it. Dean is my deceased grandfather's middle name and Hurley was our very first name choice before I even got pg this time.<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

I think both Griffen and Finnagan are cool names, but I think you have to go with something short for the middle name to help balance. I thing Dean is a great stand alone middle name (without the Robert on it.)

Ditto! I like Robert over Dean (though like the sentiment of using Dean). Like Griffin a lot. Congrats!

Griffin Robert has a great sound, balance, and flow to it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I voted for it before I saw that your dh wants Robert...it just sounds good!

Thanks for all the votes and replies!! Not sure I'll show the results of the poll to my dh, lol but it's nice to know that ppl like the name! I still don't want to use Robert but I'll probably give in anyway since this sweet baby was his idea this time. Thanks again!
