We finally narrowed it down to 2 names! Which boy name do you like and why??<br><br>
I like Caden because it means "little warrior" or "spirit of battle". We tried for so long to get pregnant and he seems like quite a scrappy little guy, so the name would be quite fitting.<br><br>
I like Atticus because of the character Atticus Finch from <span style="text-decoration:underline;">To Kill a Mockingbird</span>. Eventhough I don't like the meaning of the name (man from Attica), the character went against the grain to do the right thing. This is something DH and I try to do everyday and hope to instill in our son.

I voted for Atticus!<br><br>
To me there are just so many boys now named Caden, brayden, Aiden etc. But, I do like the name itself <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I think they are both good choices!

Atticus is a clothing brand, and their logo is a dead bird. I voted for Caden.

I just tipped the scale a bit toward Caden w/my vote. Atticus just makes me think "Attica! Attica!" yk, like the prison...

Yay! Congrats on getting the poll feature figured out! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
I voted Atticus because of the Cayden Braedon Aiden thing. I think those names might go the way of Montana, Dakota, of the mid-90's.

Atticus is awesome...<br><br>
I know like 40 people with Cadens....so I'm partial to the unique one....<br><br>
That seems to be a popular trend of late...Caden, Hayden, Jayden, Aiden<br><br>
I've hear lots of variations on that name strutcture of late....

I voted for Atticus. There are so many Caden's in our boys classes these days, it seems so trendy...nothing against popular name's of course! My boys all have popular names, LOL. But I just like the sound of Atticus.

Atticus.<br>
I am not a huge fan of it, actually. But I can't stand all the Cadens, Haydens, Braden, Jadens, blah blah blah

I voted for Atticus because I just couldn't give my child a trendy name. All the -den names were really popular a few years ago.

<span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:medium;"><span>That poll isn't much help, eh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It's pretty close running!<br><br>
As for me, I've never likes "Atticus"; but I really like "Caden" and may bring that up to DP for our baby's name too. Whatever you choose, good luck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"></span></span></span>
